Her Strictly Come Dancing co-stars thought she was hogging the limelight
Now, after an amazing run, she’s been voted off the show – after ending up in the bottom two with Scott Maslen – but her time in the competition has been pure entertainment.
The former MP’s disastrous performances echoed those of journalist John Sergeant, whose lack of dancing ability made him a firm hit with viewers.
But Now can reveal that some of her co-stars, including Kara Tointon, have been less amused about Ann stealing the limelight week after week.
‘No one can bully Ann – she’s an absolute force of nature,’ says a show insider.
‘So they were trying to undermine her with comments about the pressure of being a public favourite, hoping to put her off.’
