Ann 'I'll never dance again' Widdecombe is back in Anton's arms as she prepares for Strictly Come Dancing final


She's back: Anton Du Beke lifts up Ann Widdecombe as they rehearse for the group dance for Strictly Come Dancing's final

Two weeks after Ann Widdecome was voted off Strictly Come Dancing, the former MP is bringing her two left feet back to the dancefloor.

The dancing-challenged star, 63, was reunited with professional partner Anton Du Beke this week to rehearse for a group dance number with all her former Strictly contestants.

Despite vowing to never dance again after she was voted off two weeks ago, Widdecombe is expected to take the dancefloor along with other Strictly evictees, including Patsy Kensit and Felicity Kendal.

All the celebrity contestants have been reunited with their professional partners to perform a brief dance on Saturday's final before this year's winner is crowned.

Kara Tointon will go up against TV presenter Matt Baker and psychologist Pamela Stephenson for the 2010 glitterball trophy.

Keen to avoid Ann's uncoordinated dance steps, it looks like Du Beke may spend most of his brief sequence on Saturday's final carrying her around.

Getting their groove on: (Front L-R) Erin Boag, Katya Virshilas, Michelle Williams, Patsy Kensit and Felicity Kendal, with (back L-R) Jimi Mistry, Peter Shilton and Goldie

Reunited: (L-R) Kristina Rihanoff, Goldie, Felicity Kendal, Vincent Simone, Boag, Shilton, Williams and Brendan Cole

Widdecombe managed to survive nine weeks on the show before being voted off in week 10, despite consistently receiving low scores from the judges.

Despite admitting she was having lots of fun on the show, she insisted it was right for viewers to vote her off.

She said at the time: 'I knew we were going out because we were the only two left who weren't up to the standard of the others.

Bookies favourite: Countryfile presenter Matt Baker and Aliona Vilani are favourite to win this year's show with 8/14 odds

Feeling the strain: Kara Tointon, who is said to be battling the flu, rehearses with partner Artem Chigvintsev

Too much fun: Pamela Stephenson and her dance partner James Jordan look like they're having plenty of fun

'I'm a bit disappointed. But you've got very, very, top notch high-performing dancers. For heaven's sake, I'm still trying to do one, two, three.'

Meanwhile, Kara's rehearsals this week have run into difficulty after the actress was struck down with a bout of the flu.

Writing on her Twitter on Wednesday, she said: 'I'm a zombie !!! Lol . Brain shutting down. God damn x.'

The ailing former EastEnder, who is rehearsing four dances with partner Artem Chigvintsev, is second favourite to win with 7/4 odds by bookmakers Paddy Power.

But Countryfile presenter Baker and Aliona Vilani are the favourites with 8/15 odds, with Pamela and James Jordan as the outsiders with 15/2 odds.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2010 final airs this Saturday on BBC One at 7pm.
