Back Deborah on Strictly, urge posters
THE Western Gazette is joining locals of Langport and Somerton in backing their local celebrity on Strictly Come Dancing.
Dragons' Den star Deborah Meaden is preparing to whirl onto our screens next weekend for the ballroom dancing competition.
The 54-year-old investor and businesswoman, who lives near Langport, was matched with professional dancer Robin Windsor in the launch show last weekend.
She will be up against Countdown presenter Rachel Riley and BBC Breakfast host Susanna Reid.
A number of traders in Langport and the Somerton Rugby Club, which is coached by her husband, have already pledged their support to the dragon.
And the Western Gazette has now issued posters (pictured left) to urge locals to vote for Mrs Meaden when the contest begins on Friday, September 27.
Mrs Meaden tweeted on Monday and said she has "just got to get feet coordinated with body".
