The former Tory MP left proclaiming she'd had the 'time of her life' as she became the latest celeb booted off Strictly Come Dancing 2010
She's been Strictly Come Dancing 2010's most talked about contestant, but Ann Widdecombe has finally been booted off the dancing show, after being compared to a 'dalek in drag' by judge Bruno Tonioli.
The 62-year-old former Tory MP won the hearts of the nation for her string of comedy routines, which saw her dragged around the dance floor by partner Anton de Beke.
But the pair's Saturday night American Smooth routine proved the final nail in Ann's Strictly coffin. Walking away with just 14 out of a possible 40 points, she and de Beke were relegated to the final two as the couple with the least points. Facing Scott Maslen, Ms Widdecombe finally waltzed out of the competition.
Bowing out gracefully, she proclaimed that she'd had the 'time of her life' during her ten-week stretch on the hit show and hoped that she may have inspired the older generation to give ballroom dancing a go.
'I feel like I have had a jolly good time' she told viewers. 'This day was going to come, it has come, and they are delighted (the judges). It has been tremendous. Time of my life, it’s been fantastic!'
