Enjoy an exclusive interview with Alex & Anne about her trip to Mauritania via YouTube:
In October 2010, Anne shot to fame after appearing on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, partnered by Anton du Beke, winning the support of some viewers despite low marks from the judges.
After nine weeks of routines strongly flavoured by comedy the couple had received enough support in the public vote to stay in the contest. Widdecombe was eliminated from the competition on Sunday 5 December after the public vote had been combined with the judges’ score; she was with Scott Maslen of EastEnders in the bottom two.
In December 2017 Widdecombe played the Empress of China in the pantomime Aladdin at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft. The production was the theatre’s most successful pantomime to date.
As an MP, Widdecombe was known for opposing the legality of abortion, her opposition to various issues of LGBT rights such as an equal age of consent and the repeal of Section 28, her support for the re-introduction of the death penalty, the retention of blasphemy laws and her opposition to fox hunting.
