Cassandra Thorburn has hit back at the critics, following last night's controversial performance on Dancing With The Stars. But Karl Stefanovic's ex's new foray into engaging with public life has taken on a strange new turn, with the reality star publishing her mobile number on her Instagram profile.
Cass was harshly rated by the judges as she received the lowest score on Monday nights episode.
'Frankly it was a failure!' spat judge Craig Revel Horwood, giving her a grand total of 1 for her efforts.
Cass has since hit back on her social media - where her phone number is now bizarrely on display - in a very rare move for a celebrity.
Taking on coverage in the Daily Mail, Cass had plenty to say.
‘Um yep I was slammed by this judge DM, as were about half the other contestants)’ Thorburn’s Instagram post said.
She continued: 'I also found myself truly in the moment with one person despite an audience. That was the most incredible feeling! I also conquered my nerves, got the steps right and entertained an audience'
She concluded: 'I hope I get the chance to continue to learn this truly empowering art.'
Viewers commented on how amazing the former journalist looked.
'Cass Thorburn... classy lady despite the crappy last year or two,' tweeted one.
'Lady in red!!!! Go Cass!!! beautiful beautiful beautiful,' another wrote.
After the performance the 47 year old took to Instagram to share her experience and ask fans to vote for her.
'What a night... I felt glamorous and thought my hard work had paid off... but a one... I'm determined to prove to that judge I can do this,' she said.
