The Waterloo Road actress confessed to being at a loose end after the BBC contest wrapped up on Saturday (December 17) with Harry Judd beating her to the Glitterball trophy.
"'I don't know what to do," she told Nadia Sawalha on Lorraine today (December 20). "Strictly becomes a big part of your life and to wake up and not think about it and not to go to training - it's really upset me."
The 23-year-old claimed earlier on Daybreak that although her loss felt disappointing, she was "grateful" for the opportunity to appear on Strictly in the first place.
"It would have been nice to win, don't get me wrong," she said. "But I'm really happy even to have come second because that's amazing for me. I'm just dead grateful.
"'I always prepared myself that I was going to go first, that's just me. I always think the worst. I never expect, I just kind of go with it and then if I did stay on, it was an amazing surprise for me."
Judd has similarly described the end of Strictly as "very strange".
