Gavin Henson, Patsy Kensit, Ann Widdecombe and Felicity Kendal tipped for Strictly Come Dancing 2010
A source has revealed to the Press Association that the eclectic foursome have all signed up for the all-dancing talent show, which is due to return to screens this September.
Both Widdecombe and Henson have both previously expressed interest in the series, with the rugby star confessing: ‘I can’t lie, I really like Strictly.’
Ms Widdecombe, the 62-year-old former Conservative minister, was approached to join the show last year, but turned down the offer, saying she’d reconsider once she had retired.
The BBC is yet to confirm any of this year’s contestants, but has revealed that the number of stars will be cut from the regular sixteen to fourteen.
In another change to the norm, this year’s celebs will receive ‘pay-as-you-dance’ contracts, The Sun reports, with a source telling the paper, ‘The longer you stay in, the more you get. If you’re voted off in the first week you’ll probably end up with £10,000. If you make the final it’s ten times that.’
