‘Strictly Come Dancing is good for your health’ insists Duchess of Cornwall

The Duchess of Cornwall has highlighted the benefits of dancing preventing ill-health during the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special.

Camilla Parker-Bowles told Craig Revel Horwood : “I think it was about 25 years ago, my mother died from osteoporosis and nobody had ever heard about it and I thought: ‘I must do something about it, spread the word’.”

The Duchess was made President of the National Osteoporosis Society in 2001 for her tireless work raising awareness of the condition after her beloved ‘Mama’, the Honourable Rosalind Shand, passed away in 1994 from the fragile-bone disease.

“You’ve got to keep moving,” she told Craig. “Start off walking and it might develop into dance.”

The Christmas special was won by Katie Derham and Brendan Cole whose dance was described by Craig as a “classic Viennese waltz full of sophistication”.

Bosses combined the judges scores with a vote by the audience as the show was pre-recorded.

Newsreader Katie, 47, said: “I am so stunned, this is brilliant and feels fantastic.”
