Ann Widdecombe is to be partnered by judge Craig Revel Horwood on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' live tour
Ann Widdecombe will dance with Craig Revel Horwood on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' live tour.
The former politician - who is partnering Anton du Beke in the current series of the competition - is excited about taking to the floor with the judge, despite his regular criticism of her "wooden" performances.
She said: "I am very much looking forward to dancing with Craig after all the rude remarks he has made."
Craig is hoping he can teach Ann some of his own dancing skills.
He said: "I can't wait to get my hands on her."
The 63-year-old former MP had been reluctant to sign up for the live tour until bosses told her Craig wanted to be her partner and now insiders predict their pairing will be the highlight of the shows.
One source said: "Talk about the odd couple. If you think Ann and Anton are hilarious, you ain't seen nothing yet."
Other stars from the current series who will perform on the two-month UK tour include Matt Baker, Patsy Kensit, Kara Tointon and Pamela Stephenson.
