Strictly: It Takes Two host Rylan Clark says they reached out to Moana star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson but they never heard back from the A-lister and his team
Strictly Come Dancing’s Ugo Monye was left disheartened on Tuesday evening when he realised he hasn’t received a special message from a certain A-lister.
Appearing on the latest instalment of Strictly: It Takes Two alongside his professional partner Oti Mabuse, the former rugby player spoke about Movie Week.
Ugo and Oti had performed their couple’s choice dance to a song from the 2016 Disney movie Moana, which stars Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui.
It Takes Two host certainly got Ugo’s hopes up when he told him: “We thought you did put a lot into it, so we wanted to give you something in return…
“The wig?” Ugo quickly replied as Rylan told him: “No it’s not the wig!
“We know how much this dance meant to you and we thought why don’t we get a message from Maui himself…”
At this point, both Ugo and Oti looked gobsmacked as they listened to what Rylan had to say.
“So we reached out to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and… he ignored our pleas,” he told them as the pair fell about laughing on the sofa.

Trying to cushion the blow, Rylan continued: “So instead I stayed up last night and I thought I’d make you something nice. I made you your own rock of Ugo, it’s the next best thing!”
Ugo couldn’t stop laughing as he held the rock and told Rylan: “Honestly it was one of those This Is Your Life moments!”
Strictly: It Takes Two airs weekdays at 6:30pm on BBC Two.
