Strictly's Jacqui Smith left in 'agony' from 'bouncy' Samba and says her knees are suffering in rehearsals

STRICTLY star Jacqui Smith says she's in "agony"as she fights to up her game after being last on the leaderboard.

The 57-year-old says her knees are suffering as she throws herself into a "bouncy" Samba.

She told Good Morning Britain today: "There has been quite a lot of bouncing.

"My knees are suffering and my feet are in agony.

"I'm getting through the plasters like a rate of knots, but I'm really really enjoying this dance.

"All I need to do – all I need to do – is give it some welly and hopefully make sure everyone enjoys it as much as I am."

The first celeb will be ditched on Sunday with ex-Home Secretary Jacqui and her professional dance partner Anton Du Beke tipped to go.

She has the longest odds in Strictly history at 200-1.

Judges Shirley Ballas, 60, Craig Revel Horwood, 55, and Motsi Mabuse, 39, awarded Jacqui just 13 points.

TheTV audience peaked at 10.1million on Saturday as singer HRVY topped the leaderboard.
