'Strictly Come Dancing' winner Caroline Flack wants to set up a club and helpline for the BBC One show's former contestants so they can all combat their "post-Strictly blues"
Caroline Flack wants to set up a club for ex-'Strictly Come Dancing' contestants.
The 35-year-old television presenter - who won the BBC One dancing competition earlier this month - has already established a "helpline" alongside fellow contestant, Frankie Bridge.
Caroline shared: "Frankie and I have our own helpline where we can call each other if we are depressed.
"We may have to start our own 'Strictly' club where we come together and dance. Me and Frankie ballroom dancing together could be fun."
The former 'Xtra Factor' presenter - who beat Frankie, 25, and Blue's Simon Webbe, 36 to the crown - praised the programme for making her more "confident".
She told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "This is by far the best thing I have ever done - 'Strictly' has changed me as a person. I have found something I really love to do.
"I feel like I am more confident, happier. It's like I am on a natural high. I didn't expect it to be so special but I'm really worried about post-'Strictly' blues now."
Meanwhile, Caroline recently opened up about how her win on 'Strictly Come Dancing' was inspired by her tough split from Jack Street.
She said previously: "I think it might have been a whole year's worth of emotions put into a minute and a half of showdance [in the final].
"That felt really nice. It's amazing to end it on a high like this. It's been an interesting year but it's been very testing in a lot of ways.
"It's the way you handle things sometimes that makes you feel stronger in yourself and if you handle them right then you come out feeling good."
