The weather presenter made her dance floor debut on Saturday night, performing the cha cha to Leo Sayer’s hit, ‘Thunder In My Heart’. Gotta love a loose weather reference, don’t you?
Unfortunately for Carol, and her professional partner Pasha Kovalev, they ended up at the bottom of the leaderboard, scooping just 16 points from the judging panel for their performance.
However, it doesn’t look as though she’s taken that to heart, as she was seen poking fun at herself on Thursday’s (1 October) ‘BBC Breakfast’.
Presenter Sally Nugent told Carol about the public support she was receiving, to which she joked: “It's a shame I've got two left feet. Pasha keeps saying to me, 'your left leg, no your other left leg'.”
Speaking to HuffPost UK before the launch of this year’s series, Carol revealed that she had already “resigned herself” to the fact she’d be the first out of the competition.
Describing herself as a “carthorse”, she admitted: “You know how there’s usually a comedy figure? Well…
“I’ve never danced - apart from at weddings and things, but I have no formal training. And so this dance muscle everyone keeps talking about… I don’t have any muscles, let alone a dance muscle!”
‘Strictly’ continues this weekend, when the first couple will be eliminated from the competition.
