In today’s Gazette, entertainment writer Anna Cryer looks back at some of the show’s Tower Ballroom highlights - check out video highlights here too.

GETTING WIDDE WITH IT:

Another celebrity who perhaps gained attention for the wrong reasons was ex-Tory MP Ann Widdecombe - with her 2010 series Blackpool samba seeing her dragged around the ballroom floor like a ‘lame canary’ - according to judge Bruno Tonioli. In her bright yellow dress, including leggings and maribou feathers, she was quite a sight to behold with partner Anton Du Beke.

Despite scoring just 13 points for the dance to Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel, she still soared into the next round of the contest, as Good Life actress Felicity Kendal flew the nest and was voted off with dance Vincent Simone.
