Tory Ann Widdecombe arrives as all-female Celebrity Big Brother begins
SHE got the nation talking with her dance moves on Strictly Come Dancing in 2010 — and now ex-Tory MP Ann Widdecombe is gracing our screens again after she made her arrival at the Celebrity Big Brother house last night.
The 70-year-old, who was the shadow home secretary from 1999 to 2001, stunned viewers to reach sixth place on the eighth season of the BBC’s dance show.
Now she has helped kick off the all-female CBB launch to mark the centenary of women winning the right to vote.
Joining her was Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel, 52, Coronation Street’s Amanda Barrie, 82, transgender newsreader India Willoughby, 51, and ex-Detective Constable Maggie Oliver, who helped expose the Rochdale grooming child abuse scandal.
Also appearing were Made In Chelsea’s Ashley James, 30, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq, 34, and Ex On The Beach’s Jess Impiazzi, 28.
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
