‘Chuffed!’ Parish hit Jackie Weaver so excited to meet Anton Du Beke ‘Jackie on Strictly’
BBC Breakfast: Viewer reveals they saw Charlie in a dressing gown
Handforth parish councillor Jackie Weaver became an overnight sensation when a virtual parish council meeting spiralled out of control. Weaver had been called in to support the Handforth councillors but chaos quickly ensued when chairman Brian Tolver refused to accept the legitimacy of the meeting. He was kicked out and sent to a virtual waiting room after uttering the now infamous words: “You have no authority here Jackie Weaver”. The parish councillor told BBC Breakfast she’s been overwhelmed by the public support she’s received and is “chuffed” to be meeting Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke.
Weaver revealed: “This is just between us but I’m so chuffed I’ve been invited to meet on the screen Anton Du Beke on Monday. That has just made my world.”
“What a special moment that’s going to be,” Charlie Stayt remarked. “Fancy that.”
“Oh it will be,” Weaver replied. “For me anyway.”
“Jackie Weaver for Strictly,” Rachel Burden interjected. “Come on!”

“You can see it now, can’t you? Is that on the cards Jackie?” Stayt asked.
The parish councillor chuckled and replied: “I just want to look at him.”
“Can I just ask one thing Jackie?” Stayt asked. “Have things calmed down because we’re all laughing about it and we’re on the outside. But are there people still angry? How has it settled?”
“It hasn’t settled yet because clearly we’re in the middle a whirlwind, everybody involved in the parish council will be,” Weaver responded.
