Susan Calman: I’m flirting with so many men on Strictly
Susan Calman said she was wowed by dancer Gorka’s muscled arms.
Comedian Susan Calman has joked she has never flirted with so many men in her life since she joined the cast of Strictly Come Dancing.
The Scottish TV star, who has appeared on comedy panel shows such as QI and Mock The Week and married her wife Lee Cormack last year, said she had been dazzled by the biceps of professional dancer Gorka Marquez.
Asked what kind of partner she would like, she told the Press Association: “I need a slightly shorter gentleman, I need someone patient because I haven’t done this before.
“But all the pros are gorgeous and flirtatious and I have never flirted with as many men as I have in the past four days. My mind is going to strange places.
“I’m not into it but Gorka’s arms should have a blue plaque, when I saw them I went ‘oh my goodness.’
Calman added that dressing up in the sequins and heels required for the show is quite a change from her usual brogues and trainers.
She said: “It’s quite a change, this has been really quite shocking because genuinely I haven’t worn a dress or heels since I was 17 and I’m 42 now so this is a huge change.
“I’m embracing it because it’s Strictly so you have to go for it, but my word.”
Gesturing to her dancing shoes, she said: “These are instruments of torture, the likes of which I have never experienced in my life, they are so sore and I haven’t even danced in them yet.”
