Anton Du Beke and Jacqui Smith were the first Strictly Come Dancing couple to be voted out this year after their Samba failed to impress Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas. However, speaking on Jeremy Vine on 5, Jacqui admitted her professional partner shared some risqué advice which she wished she’d followed more closely.
Jeremy began: “I hope you’re not too sad about it Jacqui because I thought you were having a lot of fun there.”
Jacqui replied: “I mean, I’m sad I’m not able to continue the adventure with Anton who was absolutely lovely to dance with.
“But how could I be sad about taking part in such a brilliant programme? And as you say, gosh, if we needed Strictly at any time it’s this year. I had a fabulous time.”
“It did lift our spirits,” Jeremy said before showing a clip of Jacqui’s Samba with Anton.

“You’ll always have the Samba,” he commented. “Now what’s he saying to you during that?”
Jacqui replied: “His bit of advice that I perhaps didn’t listen to enough was I needed to have my t*ts out.
“By which I don’t mean literally out but thrust forward and at the end of that dance, I go up on a swing.
“And chanting t*ts out, t*ts out, t*ts out to myself was the way in which I managed to not be too scared about the height I was lifted.”
“I never thought I’d hear you say that, that’s so funny being used to you as Home Secretary,” Jeremy joked.
Jeremy pointed out Craig’s comments weren’t particularly flattering.
Craig said: “I thought you had actually severed your Achilles tendon darling through that. You were limping around lost at a party somewhere drunk; it was a good idea of yours to get her on that swing.”
Jeremy quipped: “Funnily enough you can dine out on that for years because a putdown from Craig is a precious thing, isn’t it?”

“Indeed,” Jacqui replied. “He is the pantomime baddy of the whole Strictly experience.
“He’s obviously never seen me at a party. I give it some welly when I’ve had a few drinks around my handbag.
“He’s welcome to come to a party with me and see how different I am.”
Jeremy asked: “What was the mood like with the other celebs on it because it was a very different year, was there a nice spirit?”
“There was an absolutely brilliant spirit,” the former Home Secretary shared.
“And if you watched the programme last Saturday you’ll see at the point we’ve all walked down the stairs, we basically spontaneously started clapping and cheering because we realised, ironically, of course, it followed immediately after the Prime Minister’s statement on lockdown two.
“I think we all realised that this year Strictly is bringing a bit of joy to people in an utterly grim year and everybody was joyful about being a part of that.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One at Saturday at 7.25pm. Jeremy Vine on 5 airs weekdays on Channel 5 at 9.15am.
