Jacqui Smith, 58, has revealed she believes her boobs are at fault for her Strictly Come Dancing 2020 elimination after she became the first celebrity to leave the BBC show last weekend. The former Home Secretary was voted off alongside her professional dance partner Anton du Beke, 54.
The duo’s final dance was a Samba routine to Tom Jones’ song Help Yourself.
Jacqui has since admitted that problems arose for her in the Latin dance because she didn’t follow Anton’s advice about her posture, which required her “t*ts to be out”.
Reflecting on the Ballroom dance expert’s teachings, the ex-Labour MP said: “’T*ts out, t*ts out, t*ts out’.
“That’s what Anton had told me.

“That’s sort of been the theme… the problem with my Samba was my t*ts were not sufficiently out.”
Jacqui also spoke out about notoriously tough Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood’s comments on her performances.
She criticised Craig for comparing her to a “stumbling drunk” after her dance last weekend.
Jacqui divulged to The Mirror: “I’m quite tough, but I did find that quite difficult.”
The star added that although fellow judges Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse praised her for “coming a long way” in her dancing, that “Craig was slightly more focused on how far I hadn’t come…
“But it’s Strictly, it’s fabulous, it’s not the end of the world, nobody died.”
Jacqui also revealed part of the routine in which she was hoisted on a trapeze covered in feathers reminded her of fellow politician Ann Widdecombe’s performances on the BBC show in 2010.
She quipped: “That was my Widdecombe moment. Ridiculous.

“Incidentally, I have united the nation across political divides…
“I understand from Anton that Ann Widdecombe voted for us. That’s really sweet of her.”
Jacqui recently vowed to continue to develop her dancing skills with her new boyfriend, Birmingham University politics lecturer Dr Graham Timmins.
She told the For the Many podcast: “He loves me for my mind and my personality.”
The politician also hopes to keep the show’s famous spray tans in her life, gushing: “They are absolutely fantastic. I’m a convert.”
Following her exit, Jacqui took to social media to address her departure and apologised for leaving so early on in the contest.
“Thank you @bbcstrictly for giving me the adventure of a lifetime,” she wrote on Twitter, in view of her 30,500 followers.
Her post continued: “I’m sorry I couldn’t have continued it with the amazing @TheAntonDuBeke but happy for all those amazing and lovely dancers.
“Good luck to them all. Your country needs you and Strictly,” she signed off, adding the hashtags “#noregrets #goforit”.
