Susan Calman announces shock new twist to her performance this Saturday

9

SUSAN Calman won’t just be learning the steps for her latest Strictly Come Dancing shimmy – she will be tasked with whisking professional Kevin Clifton around the floor as she leads their sizzling Samba.

Traditionally, the male dancer takes charge of dictating the pace, steps and direction of a ballroom routine and during the pair’s Charleston last weekend, it was no different.

Yet the 43-year-old confessed everything would be switched up in her segment on this Saturday’s show.

And it’s down to a splash of girl power – and smashing patriarchy.

Addressing Strictly’s movie week episode she took to Twitter and posted: “So @keviclifton has choreographed a fab Samba routine. I lead and spin him for a change.

“Well, Wonder Woman would take charge wouldn’t she.”

The BBC Radio 4 DJ tagged on an image of Wonder Woman smashing through the pane of a glass door, emblazoned with the word patriarchy, with her fist.

Clearing up any confusion for her fans, Susan added the pair had taken inspiration from the Wonder Woman TV series and revealed: “The original theme tune from the TV show. It’s better for a samba and they did a movie version as well. So it all fits.2

In a separate message, she wrote: “Off to B & Q to buy some rope. I need to practice lassoing @keviclifton. Strictly really is a dream come true.”

Susan hasn’t yet revealed her outfit for the eagerly anticipated episode.

Yet it’s bound to be inspired by Wonder Woman’s skintight red corset and sky blue knickers.

Her posts sparked much excitement among her social media followers, with one gushing: “Going to be the best thing ever! Be gentle with him. With great power comes the responsibility not to spin Kevin into the crowd.”

Another put: “Love this! Smashing patriarchy through the medium of dance! Can’t wait for Saturday!” as a third simply surmised: “Boss.”

Last weekend, Susan glammed up for an energetic Charleston with Kevin, which saw the pair show off their fancy footwork to Susie by Enoch Light and The Charleston City All-Stars

Taking on a courtroom theme, TV presenter Susan looked like she was having a ball as she performed with the long-running show finalist.

It split the judges in half – with some slamming the dance for its poor performance, while others claimed that despite missing moves she had “sold” the dance regardless.

Yet she sailed through to the next round as Holby City’s Chizzy Akudolua was booted off.
