Coincidences Have Helped Arlene Phillips

Arlene Phillips, the dance choreographer and ex dancing judge for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, said that coincidences have been a large part of her life. In Arlene's words:

Arlene Phillips"My whole life, I've felt there have been these paths that have been set me. Coincidences that have happened - moments of chance that have changed my life.

Meeting Angus (her husband) was one of those chance things. We got together pretty quickly and have been together ever since. At the time, I didn't quite realise it would last so long.

When I became pregnant with Abi it was a gift beyond compare. I was so luck that, firstly Angus and I got to have a child together and secondly, that I was able to get pregnant at 47 (she is now 67).

  1. Two coincidences here for me with this story.
    I only have one sister
    and guess what her name is ?
    I think you will only need the one guess .-)
    Second coincidence - I'm 47...but not pregnant.-)

    You're getting good exposing the
    coincidences in my life,Mike.

  2. Darren: Glad to hear you aren't pregnant. Arlene + 47 that's quite good!

  3. You guys must be spiritual brothers! Glad to hear you aren't pregnant, Daz!
