Susan Calman unfollows the BBC Strictly Twitter account

The Scottish comedian was voted off last weekend

Susan Calman was the latest celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing, this weekend, after losing the dance-off.

And she’s clearly taking the news hard, so made the decision to unfollow the BBC’s official Strictly Twitter account.

The 43-year-old obviously didn’t want frequent reminders that she was no longer “keeeep(ing) dancing”.

So she chose to unfollow the account, meaning she wouldn’t have to see what the remaining six contestants were all up to.

The Scottish comedian clearly wasn’t seeing the funny side of leaving the contest.

She tweeted about her decision, saying: “For journos contacting my agent because I unfollowed BBC Strictly twitter account: I’m sad about leaving the show and didn’t want to get even sadder.

“I think that’s ok. Thanks.”

Her loyal army of fans – who had kept Susan and her professional partner Kevin Clifton in the contest right through to week ten – piled in to send their support.

“I truly loved watching you and Kevin dance every week and you will be hugely missed. Keep smiling and all the happiness for the future xx,” said one.

Another added: “You will always have the joy of dance – you patently got so much pleasure from it and gave so much to those followed your amazing journey. This gloom will pass!”

And someone else compared her leaving the show to a bad break-up, tweeting: “It’s like when you unfollow an ex on Instagram. You don’t want to see them carrying on without you, being all happy and stuff!

When another fan wanted to know if that also meant she would no longer be watching the series, Susan reassured him she’d definitely be tuning in.

“Of course I am, I love the show. I just needed a couple of days to get used to not being in it,” she replied.

Susan and Kevin had defied the odds and their low scores to make it through to week ten.

But after finding themselves in the bottom two and in the dance-off against Alexandra Burke and her partner Gorka Marquez, their time was up.

But Susan will be taking part in the Strictly tour, which starts next month.

Strictly continues tomorrow with the quarter finals and Musicals week, which starts at 7.05pm on BBC1.
