The 'Countdown' star said she was sorry about leaving partner Pasha to go it alone for the interview on Thursday morning:

The brainiac-turned-dancer can be forgiven for oversleeping though, as she's been in intense practise for the BBC dance contest's first live show on Friday.

Susanna - whose professional partner is Kevin Clifton - is quoted by PA as saying: "I find it really hard to remember the steps because it is not in my nature to memorise movements."
