Bruno Tolioli on Susan Calman – "It was like watching Suranne Jones in Dr Foster."

Calman and Clifton opened the show yeserday and went down well with the audience and the judges.

Shirley Ballas said "You danced everything right from your heart today. You didn't miss a step. You've come huge strides."

Craig Revel Horwood got boos when he said "your feet weren't always closing and your face did look in pain," but added "I love the serious side of you." 

Bruno Tolioli said: "I loved the way you channelled your dramatic persona...it was like watching Suranne Jones in Dr Foster."

Darcey Bussell said that the Scottish comedian's own personality came through. "You get more emotional and the frame starts to soften...keep that focus."

When Calman joined the programme she said: “Being on Strictly is a dream come true. Finally I can reveal all the moves I've been practising in my kitchen to the nation. I am an enthusiastic home dancer and now on Saturday nights I'll be dancing in other people’s homes in a (hopefully) entertaining way. I am terrified but excited to start my Strictly journey.” The is the 15th series of the BAFTA award-winning entertainment show produced by BBC Studios.
