She told the Mirror: “My husband even found me a local professional dance tutor.
“But I didn’t want to get done for cheating. In hindsight, I regret it.”
Susannah doesn’t think she’ll last long in this year’s competition.
The fashion guru, 55, has prediected she’ll be the first celeb contestant voted off the show.
And she admits he’s already struggling with the BBC ballroom series’ gruelling five day training regime.
She told the Mail On Sunday: “I’m doing Strictly – and I’m already bottom of the leader board.
“Not only was I the last to be named as a contestant in this year’s show, the bookies are tipping me to be the first to leave.
“And after the early rehearsals, I have to admit they have a point.

“What. On. Earth. Possessed me to sign up? Most people have at least a smidge of rhythm, but as deep as I have dug to find mine, that well is completely dry.
“It’s not just that I’m the oldest and by some distance least glamorous of the competitors, I’m also the most uncoordinated person I know – or anyone who knows me knows.”
She added: “I’m the sort of person who stumbles off the end of airport travelators.
“I run competently when my feet land straight. The one time they didn’t, I broke an ankle, which doesn’t bode well for the fancy footwork required on Strictly.
“I am what Craig on the judging panel would call a Dance Disaster. And he probably will.”
One top showbiz agent said: “It is literally the talk of the business at the moment, nobody can believe it.
“It’s the biggest show on telly, but so many of the names involved this time around are virtually unheard of.
“It’s like everyone has been put off by the fear that it might destroy their relationship.”
