Katie Piper says that her time on "Strictly Come Dancing" was a "personal journey" for her.
The 35-year-old philanthropist left the BBC One ballroom competition last Sunday along with her professional partner Gorka Marquez and although she found the routines very challenging at first she eventually conquered her nerves and learnt to enjoy learning how to dance.
Speaking on "Loose Women", Katie said: "Do you know what, I was really annoyed with myself for week one for being so nervous. I'd just come off a theatre tour on my own, I thought, how can I be so anxious and scared? But you know, it's like nothing else. It's really intimidating.
"I had a good relationship with Gorka and after week two I did get over those nerves. Even though I went I can look back and say I had a really good laugh, and I know it's so cliché, but a bit of a personal journey. It's positive they keep it strictly to dance as it should be."
Katie and Gorka performed their jive to "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" once again in the dance off but all the judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Shirley Ballas opted to save actor Charles Venn and his partner Karen Clifton.
The presenter confessed she knew it was the right time for her to be voted off the dancing competition because her moves weren't getting any "better".
Katie added: "Oh god I'm rubbish and everyone knows, but you feel a sense of relief in that you know it's right - Charles was a better dancer than me. Say I'd been saved another week. Max, I didn't have much more than another week to give. I don't have any musicality as the judges kept telling me, if I'd gone away and trained for another week I don't think I would have got better, I would have stayed the same."
