Anita can’t wait to take to the dancefloor

The Duchess of Cornwall thinks she’s proved a ‘huge example’, and Anita Dobson cheerfully admits the Prince of Wales’s good lady wife isn’t the only more mature fan to voice their praise.

Angie was flawed but fabulous.

Twent-five years ago on Christmas Day, most of the country came to a standstill to watch one of the most iconic moments in television.

The scene was The Queen Vic pub in Walford, where Dirty Den surprised his wife Angie Watts by serving her with divorce papers. As she stood shocked, he sniped: "Happy Christmas, Ange," and the doof-doof-doof drums kicked in.

Strictly Anita Dobson's Royal flush

Actress Anita Dobson became the eighth celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing tonight — and told of her scariest moment.

It wasn't facing the judges or strutting her stuff in front of 6,500 people at Wembley, but dancing in front of the Duchess of Cornwwall. Camilla paid a surprise visit to the Strictly studios on Friday and Anita had to perform her cha-cha-cha for the royal audience.

Holly Valance was in the bottom two for the second week running - but it was ex EastEnders actress Anita Dobson who was voted off. Anita lost her regular dance partner Robin Windsor to a foot infection, but Brendan Cole stepped in for last night's cha cha cha.

The Kiwi, who had been partnered with Lulu until they were voted off three weeks ago, had previously been a substitute partner for Holly a fortnight ago when her partner Artem Chigvintsev hurt his back.

Brendan to Anita’s rescue

Brendan Cole will be a Strictly supersub again this weekend — as partner for Anita Dobson.The Kiwi — who recently filled in for Artem Chigvintsev with Holly Valance after the Russian hurt his back — will replace crocked Robin Windsor.

The dancer has pulled out after his foot became infected and he was prescribed antibiotics and told to rest. A source said: "Robin is not exactly at death's door but he has got a dodgy foot so it's only fair that Anita has a fully functioning partner this weekend.

Anita says Brian May is a 'bad dancer'

Strictly Come Dancing star Anita Dobson has revealed that her husband Brian May is not good on the dance floor. The former EastEnders actress admitted that her improved technique had not rubbed off on the Queen drummer.

She told Digital Spy: "Brian is not a dancer at all. It's just not in his body. It's not a concept that fits well with him. "He's a mathematician and all of his musicality is in his head and fingertips."

Audley would have quit to save Anita

Boxer Audley Harrison said he would have quit Strictly Come Dancing rather than deprive fellow dance-off contestant Anita Dobson of the chance to dance at Wembley next week.

Audley, 40, who was booted off the show last night after performing a ­cha-cha-cha with partner Natalie Lowe, said: “I wouldn’t have been happy to go through ahead of Anita.” Next week’s Wembley show is a special to mark Children in Need.
