STRICTLY COME PANTO: ANN WIDDECOME IN PANTOMIME DEBUT!

Ann Widdecombe and Craig Revel Horwood to star in Snow White And The Seven Dwarves.

Strictly Come Dancing alumni and ex Tory MP Ann Widdecombe will make her pantomime debut this Christmas playing Widdy In Waiting alongside her Strictly nemesis, judge Craig Revel Horwood.  Craig, who frequently savagely critiqued Ann's unique moves on the hit BBC1 show last year will play the Wicked Queen.   He infamously described her Titanic themed routine as "frigid, passionless and in fact that iceberg showed more emotion" and also aptly quipped "watching Anton carry Ann around the dance floor like a pantomime dame has been rather painful, but nevertheless extremely entertaining."

Now as art imitates life and the two are panto-bound, there are no hard feelings between the pair.   Ann claims they had "enormous fun" on the Strictly Come Dancing tour and says they will inject some of that magic sparkle into the Snow White production.  The show will run from December 9th to the 31st at the Orchard Theatre, Dartford.
