There’s snout wrong with final Strictly star Susannah Constantine
SUSANNAH CONSTANTINE revealed she wasn’t feeling super confident about being involved in Strictly — by bizarrely referring to herself as a ‘pig’ when the news was announced.
The TV fashion stylist, 56, best known for scrutinising other people’s style in What Not To Wear with Trinny Woodall, seemed to be pre-empting criticism of her own appearance and two left feet — or should that be trotters? — when she and Casualty actor Charles Venn were unveiled on today’s ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
Talking up her nerves, Susannah said: ‘I hope to prove pigs can fly (dance). Sick with nerves and jangling with excitement.’
Meanwhile, Charles — who has played nurse Jacob Masters in the hospital drama since 2015 and previously played roles in EastEnders, Footballers’ Wives and Dream Team — seemed to be raring to get up on the dance floor.
‘Dancing on Strictly is going to be quite a challenge but life’s all about testing yourself so there’s lots to look forward to, let the games begin..!’ the 45-year-old said.
The duo are the 14th and 15th contestants to be revealed for the reality series, joining Blue star Lee Ryan, Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts, newsreader Kate Silverton, comedian Seann Walsh, documentary presenter Stacey Dooley, This Morning’s Dr Ranj Singh and former cricketer Graeme Swann.
Completing the line-up are TV presenter Katie Piper, Steps singer Faye Tozer, Red Dwarf actor Danny John-Jules, YouTube star Joe Sugg, Paralympian Lauren Steadman and DJ Vick Hope.
The new series will see presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman return, along with judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Dame Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood.
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One in the autumn
