Ann Widdecombe showed that the strain of her gruelling regime on Strictly Come Dancing appeared to be taking its toll - after she was pictured fast asleep on a train.

The exhausted contestant and former MP, who last week delighted viewers with her version of the paso doble on the BBC One show, was pictured fast asleep on a London Overground train at Finsbury Park on Tuesday.

The 63-year-old former Minister, who has been rehearsing the fast-paced Charleston this week, was photographed in The Daily Mail with her head against the train window, her eyes firmly shut and her mouth wide open.

Despite being exhausted by the rigours of performing on the BBC show, Ann, who is partnered by Anton De Beke, is clearly enjoying herself.

She said recently: "That's the joy of Strictly. You find yourself doing things you'd never have imagined. When I do leave, I shall have stronger withdrawal symptoms than I ever get when I give up coffee in Lent."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
