Edwina Currie was 'too smutty' for Strictly, claims Anne Widdecombe

Edwina Currie (Strictly Come Dancing 2011)

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Anne Widdecombe has claimed Edwina Currie got the axe from the show last weekend because she was too smutty! Former MP Edwina became the first celeb to leave the new series on Sunday night after two dances.

It was reportedly recently that Edwina wanted more saucy dance moves for her routines in an attempt to look sexy.

Speaking to The Sun today, Anne moaned: "Edwina completely misread the programme and the audience.

"All her talk was very smutty — it's a family show. A large part of the audience is children. Anything that's going to make parents uncomfortable isn't going to be very popular."

She added: "Edwina's only other option was to be the panto act which Russell's done very well.

"She has a very bright mind and I expected some quick-witted repartee with the judges, but there wasn't even any of that."

Strictly Come Dancing continues this weekend where one more celeb will be be booted out.
