Stephanie Beacham - absolute class!
Were lucky enough to get tickets to see Strictly the week after she left. Somehow or other she got stuck with us plebs in a corridor waiting to go into the studio. Immediately took charge of the situation by asking us who we were supporting, and saying how great all the other contestants were. Very chatty, down to earth, funny and oozed class.
I'm glad to hear that she always came across on SCD as having a wicked sense of humour.
