Six former stars including a Devon MP have made the line-up for the Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Christmas special. Ann Widdecombe, who danced with Anton du Beke, is part of stars who will thrill spectators during the festive special. She will team up with Anita Rani a quarterfinalist in 2015 and Caroline Flack, the winner of series 12.
The event will feature other stars like Aston Merrygold, Jake Wood and Michael Vaughan of series 10.
According to Ann Widdecombe, “I am very much looking forward to returning to Strictly, where I shall once again be pushed, pulled, cajoled and coaxed around the dancefloor in all manner of ways by my poor dance partner. Who knows, they might even fire me out of a canon.”
According to Caroline, “I can’t quite believe it’s been four years since I had the best time of my life, dancing with Pasha on the Strictly dance floor. My Glitterball still has pride of place in my living room!
“It always felt like a family at the SCD studios, so how could I say no to performing one last time on this year’s Christmas special? It’ll be the best present I could imagine.”
On his part, Aston said he was “so happy” to return to Strictly while Jakes said – “It’s been a few years since I donned the sequins so I can’t wait to do it all over again for the Christmas Special. I loved my experience on Strictly Come Dancing and I jumped at the chance when they asked if I wanted to step back onto the dancefloor.”
