However, Kara appeared to be uncomfortable talking about the so-called Strictly curse: "You know, this is a really difficult subject.It's dangerous to go there because I said something a few months back - in jest, light-heartedly - all of a sudden it was written that I was angry with the BBC."Far from it, I love the show.Almost a month after her last Dream Team episode aired, it was revealed to the press that she would be joining the BBC soap East Enders as a new character, Dawn Swann.Tointon auditioned for East Enders at the same time as Tiana Benjamin, Matt Di Angelo, Kellie Shirley and Charlie Clements all auditioned for their respective roles.The 32-year-old Mr Selfridge actress appeared on today's edition of Loose Women when she was asked about the "Strictly bubble".
The pair achieved good scores in the first five weeks of 30, 32, 31, 32 and 37.
Tointon left East Enders, along with co-star Ricky Groves, on 27 August 2009.
