Patsy: I don't resent Ann's reign

Patsy Kensit says she doesn't resent Ann Widdecombe's success

Patsy Kensit isn't resentful that Ann Widdecombe has survived her on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Holby City actress - who danced her last dance with partner Robin Winter last weekend - reckons the former MP has a place in the competition, despite her hapless dance moves.

"It's a public show and people want her there and they are voting for her - I love Ann and that's perfect," she said at Red's Hot Women Awards in London.

But she refused to say who she is backing to win the show.

She added: "They're all winners, as far as I'm concerned. You're not going to get a name out of me."

Patsy, who will strut her stuff for the Strictly Come Dancing tour in January, isn't disappointed about leaving.

"It was amazing, I had the best fun," she admitted.

"It was just so different to anything I've ever done before - I've been acting since I was four, and never danced so it was a complete and utter new experience and I loved it. I went out last Saturday, but I felt good about it, it was my time to go. We did a good dance and everything. I'm very grateful to have had that experience."

She is now encouraging people to take up dancing.

"I would say to anybody if you get the opportunity to do it, go on the show. And for everyone else, go and sign up to a dance class because it will lift your spirits," Patsy added.
