Strictly Come Dancing’s Susan Calman destroys homophobic troll

The homophobe, who goes by the name ‘PrayToTheOnlyGod’ and calls homosexuality “filth” on their profile, tagged Calman along with Stonewall chief executive Ruth Hunt.
Calman, 42, responded brilliantly, telling the bigot: “Mate. I’ve been watching Game of Thrones.
