Taking to her social media, the star comedian, 38, posted a quick pre-rehearsal video whilst waiting for her partner Johannes Radebe, and as she did she munched on a small packet of party rings!
Captioning the hilarious clip, the doting mother penned: “An athlete prepares,” and looked very content as she enjoyed her breakfast.
Following her foody confession, the presenter also shared a video of herself waving in the rehearsal mirror whilst cosied up in a stunning peach coat and orange jumper, which she wore on top of her rehearsal gear.
Ellie shared her breakfast with fans on Instagram
Her sporty ensemble included a pair of black and white leggings and trainers. Alongside the clip read the words: “I mean, it’s a look isn’t it.”
This wasn’t the first time the star got candid about how rehearsals were going as she filmed herself in the back of a car pretending to cry at the pain her feet were in.
Captioning the clip she wrote: “Ohhhhhhhh my feet are on fire.” Once the star arrived home, she shared the controversial way she tended to her aching feet and uploaded a photo as she sat with her twinkle toes in a champagne bucket filled with water and ice.
The star was ready for a full on day of dancing
Ellie hilariously penned: “Gousto ice pack in a champagne bucket? Tell me you’re middle class without telling me you’re middle class,” next to the image.
She and Johannes had a great start to the competition on Saturday, securing a brilliant score of 28/40 with their energetic quick step to I Am What I Am.
Ellie is very open about her Strictly journey
Talking to the BBC about joining the show, she said: “Well, cover me in fake tan and roll me in sequins! I’m absolutely over the moon to be a part of Strictly 2022! I’ve watched the show for years so to be able to take to the dance floor is a dream come true, for both me and mum who is a Strictly super fan!
“At the moment I’m focusing on the excitement and glitter and choosing to ignore the fact that I have the dancing ability of a newly born giraffe. Bring it on!”
