Don’t write off my ‘oldie’ Suze

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by ED GLEAVE

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
