Don’t write off my ‘oldie’ Suze
ANTON du Beke has warned Strictly fans not to “write off” Susannah Constantine because of her age.
The pro dancer reckons she will be a hit despite being one of the oldest contestants at 56.
He said: “Debbie McGee was one of the older ones last year and she made it all the way to the final. I don’t see why Susannah shouldn’t be able to do that. Some people have written her off already. But I wouldn’t be so quick to do that.”
Anton, 52, has been training with her for a week.
He said: “The rehearsals have been great. I thought, ‘This could be a disaster’. But it was a case of, ‘Oh this is rather good, I never
thought you’d be able to do that’. I was very impressed. And I’m not just saying that because I’m her partner, I’m saying it because it’s true. I’m a little bit excited.”Bookies Coral have made Susannah the favourite to be the first celeb to be voted off. ■HAPPY COUPLE: Gorka and Gemma pose for a snap ■READY TO ROCK: Katie with dance partner Gorka
