Boris Becker’s Wife Lilly Looks Impressive In Let’s Dance – Lilly Becker, a former model and the wife of Wimbledon hero Boris Becker, is impressing everyone on Let’s Dance, the German version of Strictly Come Dancing.
Dutch born Lilly is known for her knock-out figure and is certainly not looking to be a stay at home quiet as a mouse sportsman’s wife. The 37-year old looks to be having a great time in the German celebrity dance competition and has the full backing of husband Boris who took to his Instagram account this week to say how well he thought his wife was doing.
Let’s Dance is now in its 7th season on German tv having started back in 2007 when the first series winner was German actor Wayne Carpendale. Among the judging panel in that first series was the very hot former ice skating champion Katarina Witt, although she only stayed for that one series before being replaced by German cabaret singer Ute Lemper.
Lilly Becker has proved to be a very popular competitor this year not just with the judges but also with the German tv audiences. Her professional partner on the show is dancer Erich Klann and this only adds to her chances of winning the series as Erich won series 5 of the show with his partner Magdalena Brzeska, a German gymnastics champion.
This week Lilly and Erich danced a foxtrot to Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” and got a total of 22 points from the 3 judges. Despite lots of positive comments from the judges Lilly still found herself a little off the pace this week as singer Alexander Klaws got a score of 29 points for his samba and figure skater Tanja Szewczenko picked up 26 points for her foxtrot.
Lilly has been married to former tennis champion Boris Becker since 2009 and they live in Wimbledon, London near the scene of Boris’s first grand slam victory back in 1985. This first Wimbledon victory came at the age of just 17 and the win is still ranked as the youngest by any tennis player at Wimbledon since the tournament started in 1877.
It remains to be seen if Lilly can carry off the Let’s Dance title but she is certainly putting up a good show so far.
