Susannah Constantine gives honest update on Strictly Come Dancing training: "I'm walking on a tightrope of disaster"

After Susannah Constantine and Anton du Beke’s extravagant samba left them in last place on the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard on Saturday, the couple have been busy preparing for their performance on the second live show. And according to Susannah, it’s not going as well as she’d hoped.

Ahead of day three of training, the celebrity contestant shared a video on Instagram with the caption: ‘Believe, believe, believe.’

In her brief update, she told fans: “I’m walking on a tightrope of disaster as opposed to a nice wide bridge. I’m finding it so hard to get the steps.”

She added: “When Anton says, ‘What foot are you standing on?’ I’ll go, ‘Right’ and it’ll be my left. And he’ll go again, ‘What foot are you standing on?’ front or back and I’ll go, ‘The front’ and I’m standing on the back.

“I can’t get my brain to engage… I think it’s not going very well. Anton is much more positive than me and he is an amazing man. And I am loving the friendship that is building between us.”

The honest report sparked a flurry of encouraging comments from supporters of the former TV presenter, who told her that she is “doing brilliantly” despite the judges’ low scores on week one.

“You’ll get it – you’ll always feel like you are worse than you actually are,” one commenter said. “You look amazing and can do it! – keep it going for all us 50 plus who now doubt our ability to do things – Don’t forget you have personality plus and that will win through too.”

“You can do this!” wrote another.

Let’s hope Craig Revel Horwood is feeling a little more complimentary on Saturday. Last week, he awarded Susannah and Anton a score of one, saying it looked like they were “staggering about lost and drunk at a party”.

In the words of Strictly fans, “stay positive”, Susannah.
