Widdecombe to front new TV quiz

Ann Widdecombe has signed up to front a new television quiz

Ann Widdecombe has signed up to front a new television quiz called Cleverdicks.

The former MP, who had a lengthy run in last year's Strictly Come Dancing against the odds with her lumpen performances, had previously said she had no interest in a "showbiz career".

The show, which will be broadcast next year on Sky Atlantic, will feature four contestants playing for a cash prize and the right to call themselves a cleverdick.

Ann said: "Some may say that I am a cleverdick to have secured this contract but they should meet some of the formidable cleverdicks who will be playing during the show."

She is due to make her pantomime debut later this year when she stars in a production of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs with sharp-tongued Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford, Kent, from December 9.

Sky Atlantic's director Elaine Pyke said: "Cleverdicks and Ann Widdecombe - who could resist?

"Sitting in an early evening slot, the show is intelligent, irreverent and hugely entertaining and will be a great start to an evening's viewing on Sky Atlantic."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

You should be justifiably proud of your progress. It isn't easy to break a bad habit, but you've managed to do so. A perverse side of your personality may tempt you to fall back on the old ways, just to give yourself another challenge. Ignore these impulses. Channel your energy in a positive direction instead. Learning to make clothes, furniture or jewellery will be a great use of your creative ability. You'll be especially successful if you use old, discarded materials in your work.More
