First picture of Susan Calman in Strictly Come Dancing

Series starts on Saturday

This is Susan Calman in her first official image from Strictly Come Dancing.

The BBC has released pictures of all the celebrity dancers ahead of the launch night show on  Saturday.

When Calman was announced as one of the contestants last month, she said: ‘I haven’t worn heels or a dress since I was 17. I haven’t danced with a man in over a decade. This is going to be quite interesting. My mother will die happy to see me in a dress.’

And today she tweeted: ‘Sent my Mum my official Strictly photo. She said I looked beautiful.  I had a bit of a cry. A happy cry.’
