Anna had this to say after the show:

“Can you believe it we are in our final month of 2023 talking ‘All things Autism in Essex’ Time flies whoosh!

Aston and I talking as always at the beginning of the show about Strictly and the previous weeks eliminations and our favourite routines. Not long to go for the final and for the Christmas Strictly special whoop.

I am off to Zoes place in Coventry for my 6th year. I am judging Strictly Christmas the matinee performance with Harry Judd, Vincent Simone and Chloe Hewitt . Later that day I am judging the evening performance with my good friend Robin Windsor, Kristina Rihanoff . Just love this event!!

Aston and I spoke about his surprise Charity Supporter of the Year Award. The shock on his face was priceless on the night!

Well I need to get on with my Christmas shopping and don’t forget on Christmas day and holidays do what works for you as a family.

There are no written rules what you should be doing. Just do what works for you as a family .If its chicken nuggets and chips for Christmas Dinner just go for it no need to stress.

Take it one day at a time .

Sending positive vibes and best wishes.

Aston and I will be on Gateway 97.8 on Christmas Day around lunch time.

Take care
