Ann Widdecombe has banned her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Anton Du Beke from swearing during rehearsals.
The former Conservative minister has said she doesn't want Anton using expletives in front of her because she gets offended by them.
Speaking about the dance studio near her Devon home, Ann explained: "There is no swearing in here. But Anton is very good. There was only a mild use once, so I can forgive that."
Ann - who has become a favourite among fans, despite not impressing the BBC One show's judging panel - also revealed her annoyance at only scoring 16 out of 40 on Saturday's (30.10.10) show because she felt she deserved more.
She added: "One of the things which irritated me was that I really was pretty well step perfect on the pasa doble and the judges just didn't take that into account at all."
Ann also slated rival entertainment show 'The X Factor', branding it "awful", although the former politician admitted she would consider appearing on it for a joke, as she can't sing.
She said: "I've never seen an episode in my life. I've seen it on the news because for some reason these awful things are regarded as news, but I've never sat and watched it.
"I'm on the right show, no doubt about that. Although maybe 'The X Factor' would be a hoot - I'm tone-deaf, too!"
