The Loose Women star took to the dancefloor for the first time on Saturday during the first live Strictly Come Dancing episode of the year. Partnered with Kai Widdrington, the journalist detailed her discomfort in learning “sexy” routines as she admitted the thought of the rumba gives her “the ick”.
Explaining how she is a total beginner when it comes to dancing, Kai reassured her that it was a good thing.

“And then you’ve got the emotional challenge on top of it, which is, ‘Do I look like a 59-year-old sack of potatoes?’

Kaye put plenty of effort into her dance on Saturday, but the judges were unanimous in that she let her nerves get the better of her.
Motsi Mabuse made some promising comments though, expressing the TV star did have “potential”.
Kaye isn’t the first of her Loose Women team to try her hand on the dancefloor.
Just last year, her co-star Judi Love danced on the show with Graziano Di Prima, coming in tenth place.
Strictly Comes Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.30pm on BBC One.
