'Strictly Come Dancing' star Ann Widdecombe believes she will always be criticised by Craig Revel Horwood on the BBC One show, even if she performs well
Ann Widdecombe believes she will always be criticised by Craig Revel Horwood on 'Strictly Come Dancing', no matter how well she performs.
The former Conservative minister has won over a huge army of fans following her entertaining performances on the BBC One show, but judge Craig hasn't been so impressed and constantly gives her low scores, something which Ann believes won't change.
She said: "The paso doble, my favourite dance. Left me covered in bruises but at least it was slow enough to allow me to gather my wits between steps.
"This week I am dancing the Charleston, which is horribly fast, so Craig will find plenty to criticise but he manages to do that even when I get the steps right."
Ann - who is partnered in the show by professional dancer Anton De Beke - also admitted she regrets not putting a bet on herself when she first signed up to appear in the programme.
She added to the Daily Express newspaper: "When the bookies had me at 100-1 I was tempted to put a bet on myself but prudence prevailed. Now they out me at 22-1 I wonder if a bet would have been so imprudent after all but then I remind myself there is a very long way to go!
"One step at a time, so to speak, is the right approach but I would love to last the course because I have never had so much fun."
