Evergreen beauties Nancy and Lulu waltz onto 'Strictly'

Wednesday September 7, 2011

Ann Widdecombe's surprise success in 'Strictly Come Dancing' last year has inspired a whole wave of veteran glamourpusses to try and take the crown this year.

The new crop of hopefuls includes singing star Lulu, 62 – who has been setting the charts alight for five decades.

She's joined by EastEnders favourite Anita Dobson – also 62 – former politician Edwina Currie, 64, and Nancy Dell'Olio – who reserves her right not to reveal her date of birth.

The Italian temptress says going on the series will give British views the chance to see "who the real Nancy is".

And she's been working with a designer to create some bombshell outfits.

Younger contestants, include Neighbours actress Holly Valance – 28 – and 23-year-old Waterloo Road actress Chelsea Healey.

Joining the men are Jason Donovan and TV astrologist Russell Grant.
