Analysis of the public vote for last weekend's Strictly Come Dancing have shown that over two million calls were received from just one telephone number, spreading votes evenly between 13 of the 14 dancing couples. As a consequence Edwina Currie and Vince were eliminated in the first round.
Forensic accountants acting on behalf of the BBC have established that the phone in question belongs to a Lady Norma Major. Although unusual the BBC declared that there had been no voting irregularities.
Speaking from Major Towers Lady Major said "It was worth every penny of John's money, I love the program but the thought of seeing that old slapper spread across my flat screen every weekend from now until Christmas was just too much to bare. I am delighted at the result, although I was a little concerned that Ulrika Jonsson's phone was constantly engaged on Sunday evening"
Tess Daly's husband Vernon sent Edwina a message of support via text.
