Susan Calman channels Daenerys Targaryen as she prepares for upcoming Strictly dance

Winter is cha-cha-cha-ing


After a great reaction to her quickstep in last Saturday’s Strictly Come Dancing, comedian Susan Calman is gearing up for another tricky challenge this weekend – the cha cha cha.


While Calman seemed to be having some trouble with the moves earlier in the week (not least because her professional partner Kevin Clifton was unable to reach her for practice), she now seems to be drawing dancing influence from an unlikely source – Game of Thrones’ mother of dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen.

Sadly, though, this doesn’t mean we’re getting a Game of Thrones-themed routine this weekend (a Red Wedding-themed foxtrot would be a must watch), though Calman doesn’t rule it out in the future.

Rather, she’s just drawing on the fiery strength of Emilia Clarke’s Breaker of Chains to add even more passion to a dance set to Little Mix’s Shout out to my Ex, and we can’t wait to see her in action. Even if we have to admit the routine WOULD be a little improved if she rode a dragon onto the dance floor to kick the night off….


Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC1 at 6.35pm this Saturday
