Strictly Susan’s Wonder Woman is the best thing I’ve ever seen – JK Rowling
Susan Calman proved to be the writer’s super hero of the evening.
Writer JK Rowling has showered praise on Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Susan Calman, lauding her Wonder Woman-inspired dance as the best television she has ever seen.
Calman delighted the audience with her performance on the BBC One contest’s movie-themed week on Saturday, dancing the first samba of the series with partner Kevin Clifton.
She swapped the traditional man-woman positions when she span Clifton on the floor and the pair included Beyonce’s signature body-pump move.
Rowling, who Tweeted earlier that she had tuned in late and hoped she had not missed Calman, commented: “@SusanCalman That might have been the best thing I’ve ever seen on television. #StrictlyComeDancing2017.”
Other fans joined in her praise, with Graeme Shield commenting: “Can’t stop smiling. Wonder(ful) Woman!”

That’s what Strictly is all about. Someone with no dance experience giving their all and bringing so much joy. Got my vote— Angie (@angie_46) October 7, 2017
Calman then sealed her performance with a kiss, planting a lipsticked smack on judge Craig Revel Horwood’s cheek before receiving a total score of 20 from the panel.
