After finishing up on the show, Angela took to social media to share her feelings about performing on live TV for the first time.

“Week one DONE!!! I’ve just had a fry up and a very small lie in. My head is reeling & I’m not quite sure what the hell happened. What a night. Everyone was incredible,” she enthused.

“I literally forgot how to speak I was so nervous/stunned, so far out of my comfort zone, so exposed, so ladylike. But I loved every second of it & thank you ALL for the messages and comments on our TANGO!!

“When I heard we were doing it I almost vomited but actually I kind of loved being fierce & moody & fiery. Thank you so much to my dreamboat @gkx_carlos for being patient & kind & making me laugh without actually trying-you are one in a million.

“I am so happy you’re with me in this & cannot wait to unlearn everything & be taught a totally different dance tomorrow that has rules that are in complete contrast to everything we have drilled for the last week. What FUN (clue next week is a gear change!) any ideals?! x.”

She also revealed that her dance this week is a “fast one”.

“back in training this morning with a new dance. She’s a FAST one. Send me (and my pelvic floor) good vibes only,” she wrote alongside snaps of her intense training regime from week one.
