The 56-year-old fashion guru - who was was partnered with Anton du Beke for the competition - became the first contestant to exit this year's show on Sunday (30.09.18), and an insider has claimed that Susannah was "furious" about the low scores she'd been awarded by the judges.

The source told The Sun newspaper: "Susannah ended up in tears after the scores were given out - she takes herself quite seriously and wasn't happy about it.

"She told people it was to do with her son going off to uni but she was obviously furious."

Susannah - who battled with joint pain throughout training - failed to impress the judges with her Foxtrot to Frank Sinatra's 'They Can't Take That Away From Me' during the dreaded dance-off against Lee Ryan.

The insider claimed she didn't appear to enjoy her time on the show at all and didn't develop any sort of relationship with the other contestants.

The source said: "She seemed to hate every minute of it. She ignored the other dancers and didn't talk to the judges and seemed to think she was above everyone else.

"She certainly didn't want to join in with congratulating Ashley (Roberts) on her amazing marks."

By contrast, Anton insisted he relished working with the TV star.

He said following their exit: "It's just all too brief. I have had the most fabulous time with Susannah, she is going to be a great loss to the show.

"Sadly someone's got to go but I wish it wasn't you because you're wonderful to be with. I'm going to miss spending time with you in the studio, we've had a great time, we've had enormous amounts of fun and you're wonderful and thank you very much indeed."
