She graced the famous dancefloor in 2007, and now Kate Garraway has revealed why she had high hopes for her time in Strictly Come Dancing.
The Good Morning Britain presenter has revealed that despite receiving the lowest scores during the majority of her time on the show, alongside professional partner Anton Du Beke, she was still hopeful that she would lift the glitter ball trophy.
All because she thought she had some pretty good moves when she hits the dance floor after a few drinks at weddings.
“Before I went on to Strictly, I assumed it was going to be me lifting the glitterball because, honestly, after a few drinks at a wedding, I’m amazing,” Kate confessed during a Strictly special on Saturday.
Er, that’s not exactly how the show works, Kate.
The 51-year-old continued, “In my head, I was going to be triumphant. And of course, that wasn’t true at all – I was absolutely rubbish.”
Sadly, it seems as though judge, Arlene Phillips agreed with the presenter, as she told her, “What is it with TV presenters? You don’t look like you’ve got rhythm, is it all that sitting on the couch?”
She wasn’t totally “rubbish”, as impressively Kate actually made it through to week seven of the competition.
However, it seems as though Arlene may have had a point, as Kate’s fellow GMB co-host, Charlotte Hawkins didn’t have the best of luck when she joined the competition last year either.
The 43-year-old was paired with Strictly pro, Brendan Cole, but sadly that also didn’t end well with the duo being booted off in week five.
And, things got very tense when Brendan went head-to-head with head judge Shirley Ballas, after she criticised their tango and claimed they had ‘rise and fall’. Oops!
At least Susannah Reid got through to the finals, all we need now is Piers Morgan to hit the dance floor.
Piers in those tight outfits, sparkles and a spray tan? Now that really would be something!
