The former Jonathan Creek star and her professional partner Johannes Radebe failed to impress viewers or the judges with their Cha Cha, with Craig Revel Horwood even comparing her to the Are You Being Served character Mrs Slocombe.

Caroline fell short when she and South African dancer Johannes, 33, performed the Cha Cha to Rescue Me by Fontella Bass, while soap star Maisie and Gorka danced the Salsa to Meghan Trainor’s Better When I’m Dancing.
