Edwina Currie hits out at Strictly Come Dancing judges

Edwina Currie (Strictly Come Dancing 2011)

Axed Strictly Come Dancing celeb Edwina Currie has hit out at the show's judges, accusing them of picking on her! The former MP became the first star to be eliminated from this year's show on Sunday night, after two less than brilliant dances.

But Edwina and professional partner Vincent Simone weren't bottom of the leaderboad, with hopeless dancer Nancy Dell'Olio escaping the chop thanks only to the public vote.

Speaking to spin-off show It Takes Two, Edwina complained: "I thought the judges' comments were very harsh.

"I think the comments they made about our little turn could have been about all of the others.

"I don't think we spent too much time on the story. Others did exactly the same and got much higher marks."

Dance partner Vincent added: "I'm really, honestly devastated. I can't sleep at night. Maybe I should have done something different. I don't know if it was my fault."

The show continues this Saturday night on BBC.
