Ann Widdecombe takes a pop at 'pointless' Strictly judge Alesha Dixon!

Alesha Dixon

Ann Widdecombe yesterday had a bit of a pop at Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon, saying she wasn’t sure what it was she did on the show! Ann, who was finally eliminated from the show on Sunday’s quarter final results show, also gave her views on the other Strictly judges.

Speaking to The Sun after her exit, the former conservative MP said: “I don’t know what [Alesha]‘s job is!

“Their job is to address technical performance. They have a job to do. Craig is mean. Len’s is to be a bit more judicial.

“I never really worked out what Alesha’s is and Bruno’s is to be very entertaining.”

Ann scored just 14 points out of a possible 40 on Saturday’s movie themed dance show, with judge Bruno Tonioli putting the viewers in stitches when he said Ann looked “like a Dalek in drag”!

Strictly judge and singer Alesha Dixon was made a judge in 2009 after winning the show back in 2007. However Alesha’s appointment, which saw her replace Arlene Phillips sparked an ageism row with the BBC receiving a large amount of negative press. Despite the flack however, Alesha returned as judge this year and the ratings continue to climb.
