Captioning the post, she penned: "The jive is NO JOKE," alongside a wink face. Friends and fans of the star couldn't wait to weigh in on the update.

[Laughing face emoji] You’re so real and comfortable in your skin (and v cool). it’s a winning combo for me!" A third replied writing: "You’ve absolutely got this girl!"

The TV host had a very successful start to the competition and received excellent feedback from the judges after her impactful tango. The pair performed to Miley Cyrus' song, Prisoner, and earned praise from the four judges, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke and Carlos Gu.

Talking about her first week, she penned on Instagram: "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. 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."

Angela added: "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."
