In a candid new video for NatWest bank, the 32-year-old – who was crowned last year's Strictly Come Dancing winner – admitted her struggle with "imposter syndrome" due to her lack of confidence. "I work in current affairs and I make lots of documentaries often about very highbrow issues I suppose," she shared. "I left school at 15, no GCSEs, no qualifications.

"I suppose at the start, current affairs is very typically middle aged, middle class, male heavy, it's very serious, quite highbrow, and I walked in as a 20-year-old girl from Luton," she continued.

You do question whether or not you belong and I think there is that temptation to mimic their behaviour and conform. But I think that's the worst things you can do, I think you've got to celebrate how unique you are and take hold of those differences, make it work for you."
