'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Alesha Dixon doesn't think Ann Widdecombe will win the BBC One competition as she is being kept in purely for ''entertainment'' value
Alesha Dixon doesn't think Ann Widdecombe will win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 32-year-old judge - who won the BBC One show herself in 2007 - admitted while the former Conservative minister is a hit with viewers, it is unlikely she will be crowned winner as she is being kept in the competition purely for "entertainment" value.
She said: "Traditionally, you always have someone like Ann. I think last year we had John Sergeant, the year I was in it - Kate Garraway was the one. And I guess that's part and parcel of the show.
"I don't think Ann can win, but Ann has been highly entertaining."
Despite Alesha believing the 63-year-old politician and her professional partner Anton Du Beke are unlikely to win the show, she conceded it would be "very boring" if all the contestants were good dancers.
She added to ITV1's 'Lorraine': "I don't think Ann's a quitter, I think Ann will stick it out. I think Ann will find it rude to the public if she left, because the public are the ones who have voted to keep her there.
"It would be a very boring competition if everybody was extremely good. You need lots of different types of people to make it interesting."
