Strictlys Robert Webb in awkward gaffe as hes mistaken for member of BBC crew

Peep Show star, Robert Webb, shared an awkward moment on set when he turned up to film the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Robert Webb, 48, had an uncomfortable experience when a member of the Strictly crew mistook him for a fellow crew member behind-the-scenes.

When he was first dropped off at the BBC's Elstree Studios, he was taken to the wrong area.

As soon as Robert arrived at the humongous studios, he asked where Strictly Come Dancing was taking place.

To which a member of the crew replied: "What department are you? Are you lighting? Are you wardrobe?"

Robert said: "It was literally the first time I’ve ever said this sentence: 'I’m one of the… celebrities'.

"They were like, 'Oh, sorry, love.'

"So, you know, there’s no chance of me getting too carried away."

The comedian was the second celebrity to be announced for this year's star studded line-up.

He is well recognised for playing Jeremy or ‘Jez’ in the hit Channel 4 sitcom Peep Show from 2003 to 2015 alongside David Mitchell.

In an interview with this week's Radio Times, Robert shared that some Strictly crew members did not know who he was.

On Saturday’s episode, Robert's dance partner, Dianne Buswell was revealed.

She began on Strictly in 2017, with her first celebrity partner Reverend Richard Coles, but they were unfortunately voted out in week three.

Dianne's luck changed when she was partnered with Joe Sugg, as they got to the grand final, and have become a real life couple since meeting on the show.

They just missed out on the Glitterball Trophy to Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton but now make Youtube videos together for their many fans.

The current favourite to win this years series is CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson, though that can always change.
