Alesha Dixon has compared Ann Widdecombe's continued presence on Strictly Come Dancing to that of Wagner from rival reality television show The X Factor. Speaking to Heat magazine this week, Alesha Dixon also said she doesn't feel as much pressure as her rival judges on The X Factor.

“Ann’s our version of The X Factor’s Wagner," Alesha said. “It’s hilarious that the public have supported her. You always get a contestant who brings humour and fun to the show. I love Ann.”

It was claimed this morning that both Ann and Wagner are both coming out in the top three of the public votes for their respective reality shows.

Meanwhile Alesha added about her X Factor rivals: “I don’t feel the same pressure that they have about what to wear. It’s weird. There’s such hype around The X Factor, whereas Strictly is a bit more low-key.”

Both Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor continue this Saturday.
