Ann Widdecombe: The publics decision to get rid of me was spot on

Ann Widdecombe

Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Ann Widdecombe has admitted the public were quite right to get rid of her from the show last night. The former Conservative MP became the latest celebrity to be eliminated from the dance show after receiving the lowest combined score from the public and judges' votes.

In Saturday's show Ann received just 14 points from the judges - including a 2 from Craig Revel Horwood - after her and Anton's American Smooth dance.

Speaking about her exit from the show in The Sun today, Ann confessed: "It would have been a travesty if I had stayed and Scott had gone out. It would have been quite wrong. Scott is a dancer and I'm not.

"I knew we were going out because we were the only two left who weren't up to the standard of the others.

"I'm a bit disappointed. But you've got very, very, top notch high-performing dancers. For heaven's sake, I'm still trying to do one, two, three!"

Ann revealed that she would be hanging up her dancing shoes when the Strictly Live Tour ends next year, she said: "When it ends, I shall not be dancing again."

But she described her experience on the show as "Brilliant".
