Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Fern Britton gets support from Dolly Parton

Fern Britton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Fern Britton has a new celebrity fan, Dolly Parton!

Fern befriended the 9 to 5 singer after interviewing her for her BBC One series Fern Britton meets three years ago.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday from LA, Hollywood star Dolly backed pal Fern to win this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

“I really hope Fern does well on the show," the country singer said. “She’s done well so far and I want to congratulate her on it.”

Fern isn't the only celeb to get some superstar support, with Adele previously giving her backing to Sid Owen.

Not that it helped that much...
