The star went on to say: “He said I could do it as long as I didn’t fail. Failing meant leaving first and happily I have got past that crucial moment. I’m so glad I didn’t embarrass him.”

“My girlfriends are doolally for it but I had to check that it was OK with my husband, with our kids and with my family because I knew that I would need so many people’s support to allow me to indulge myself in this way.”

Speaking to The Mirror, the singer-songwriter also spoke of her new album ‘Wanderlust’:

“‘It’s not pop, it’s not dance. I made it with a live band and it’s got elements of folk, and rock and lots of ballads. I just needed to do it.”

Strictly Come Dancing will be on BBC1 this evening (November 9) at 18.30 hours (GMT). The competition is now in its 8th week.

The mother-of-three has revealed she is the only contestant not resorting to tanning mist.
