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.”

That’s what Strictly is all about. Someone with no dance experience giving their all and bringing so much joy. Got my vote 😀
