FORMER MP Ann Widdecombe, who danced on the show with Anton Du Beke in 2010, has some words of advice for Strictly Come Dancing contestant Deborah Meaden.
Ann, who lives at Haytor, said: "I've seen this year's line-up and it's very interesting.
"You have two bright and interesting women with Deborah Meaden and Rachel Riley.
"Deborah will have to get used to being a contestant rather than a judge.
"There's a great mixture of showbiz types and good characters. I will be tuning in to support Anton."
She wouldn't be swayed on who may win.
"I couldn't say at this stage as I have not seen them dance. Give me three weeks and I will have a good idea," she said.
The South Devon family of Dragon's Den star Deborah Meaden (pictured) will be tuned in to watch her strut her stuff across the dance floor on the new series.
Brother-in-law Steve Massey, who owns the Devon Valley Holiday Park in Shaldon and previously owned holiday parks in Brixham, said he and his wife, Gail, have had to stay tight lipped about her appearance for a 'few months'.
"Gail is a big fan of Strictly and will be going up London to see her sister Deborah this week," said Steve.
"I think Deborah is competitive by nature and will therefore do well. She also sees it as a bit of fun.
"Strictly have been trying to get her on the show for the last four to five years."
She will compete against the likes of rugby star Ben Cohen and designer Julien MacDonald
