Strictly’s Jacqui Smith has suggested that she could have been the first contestant eliminated from the show because her “t**s were not sufficiently out”.
The former home secretary received her marching orders from the BBC competition at the weekend, after failing to wow the judges with her moves on the dance floor.
But according to the Daily Mirror, Smith thinks her boobs might have played a part.
Referring to the advice her professional dance partner Anton Du Beke had given her about how she should hold herself, she said: “T**s out, t**s out, t**s out.
“That’s what Anton had told me. That’s sort of been the theme... the problem with my Samba was my t**s were not sufficiently out.”

Smith faced some tough criticism for her performance on the programme, with judge Craig Revel Horwood telling her: “You were limping about like you were lost at a party somewhere, drunk.”
However, the 58-year-old said Horwood was acting like a “pantomime baddie”.
Smith had struggled in both live shows leading up to the first public vote, coming bottom in the first two weeks with scores of 13 and 12 points.
After the scores from weeks one and two were added together, she was left firmly at the bottom of the leaderboard.

She was eliminated after going up against reality TV star Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer in a dance-off.
Celebrities remaining in the competition include Olympic boxer Nicola Adams, Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo, actress Caroline Quentin and comedian Bill Bailey.
