Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh has opened up about the reality of being axed from Strictly Come Dancing just days before the final.
Speaking via video link to Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan on Tuesday's show, Ranvir, 43, admitted she found herself weeping at home throughout Monday.
Ranvir said: "I initially felt quite buoyant yesterday and I made pancakes with my son who was liking spending time at home with me in the morning.
"Then I found myself weeping out of nowhere throughout the day.
"It is a strange feeling as you want to finish your story and you want to complete it.
"The thing with being eliminated this close to the final you are so close to at least being able to get there any have your moment."
Insisting she really didn't think she would have a shot on the show before it began, Ranvir added: "I thought I would be quite free in December actually."
Explaining how the show has given her confidence, the 43-year-old continued: "I said after my dance last week, before I wouldn't even wear at that sailor outfit with 12 friends on New Year's Eve but did just did it for 12 million people.
"It is all ridiculous but in the end you can't think about how many people are watching.
"Afterwards you get this enormous response.
"So many women have said that I made them think about what they can do.
"I think maybe because I was open, honestly won the day.
"Even though it didn't get me to the final, what is lovely is that a lot of people can relate to my insecurities."

Insisting she plans on remaining friends with her professional dancing partner Giovanni Pernice, Ranvir said:"Because he doesn't accept that anything less that way he believes you can do he is very challenging in a training room.
"He is so driven if you are in the same room as him and on his team you are duty bound to be the same.
"I found that challenging. Eventually he had to change how he was teaching me as I was finding it difficult.
"I was finding it so exposing in the sense as the thing with dancing it is 'look at me. Don't listen. Just look at me'.
"I am not that person who puts my body out there.
"His personality and my personality were chalk and cheese but I think opposites bring out the best in each other and that is what happened."
