Rival stars reckon the ‘deal’ means the judges are favouring Susan with high marks – despite clearly not being one of the show’s top dancers
STRICTLY’S celebs claim Susan Calman keeps bagging high scores because she’s signed up for the nationwide tour.
The Scots comic, 43, fellow contestant Jonnie Peacock and last year’s winner Ore Oduba are all confirmed for the lucrative arena run.
Rival stars reckon the deal means the judges are favouring Susan with high marks.
An insider said: “The theory is that she’s agreed to the tour, which is a big money-spinner, and bosses want her in the show for as long as possible.
“Susan is a nice woman and a lot of fun but she’s plainly not among the top dancers.
"Some of the stronger stars such as Aston Merrygold, weren’t afforded the same treatment despite their talent.”
Susan has pledged to have “I Love Grimsby” tattooed on her foot after reaching tonight’s Blackpool stage.
"It is in honour of dance partner Kevin Clifton, who hails from nearby Waltham, Lincs.
THE stars’ late-night salsa sessions are keeping up fellow guests at the Big Blue Hotel in Blackpool.
Some tourists have asked to switch rooms.
Insiders say actor Joe McFadden and dance partner Katya Jones are to blame for the early hours’ racket.
A source said: “They want their performance to be perfect. Unfortunately they’re pumping the music up a bit too loud.”
