Strictly's Jacqui Smith says she'll be 'very gutted' if she's the first to be eliminated

EX-Home Secretary Jacqui Smith says she will be upset if she’s first to leave Strictly.

She said: “I would be very gutted if I was the first out. I’ve lost votes before.

The good thing about being a politician is you know what it’s like to be on the wrong end of democracy.”

She hinted she might snap back at judges, saying: “I was an MP for 13 years, a minister for ten years, I faced plenty of criticism in my time.

"I hope that I will listen and learn but I have also argued for a living.”

Jacqui, 57, has taken advice from one-time Cabinet colleague Ed Balls, 53, who took part in 2016.

She added: “He said to me, ‘Actually embrace it, really go for it and try hard’, and I promise you, that’s what I am going to do.”

Last week Jacqui showed off her stunning transformation after a glitzy makeover during the show's rehearsals.

The UK's first female Home Secretary – who served from 2007 to 2009 under PM Gordon Brown – shared hermakeover with her 28.3k followers on Twitter.

Since joining the cast of this year's BBC One dance competition, Jacqui has swapped her smart work attire and natural make-up for something a bit more glam.

The TV personality and broadcaster looked stunning with her hair styled in a middle parting and loose Hollywood curls.
