According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, Anita Dobson will make her Royal Shakespeare Company debut in The Merry Wives of Windsor, beginning Oct. 25 in Stratford-upon-Avon.

"[Director Phillip Breen] said I'd be a perfect fit because I work well with an audience," Dobson told the Daily Mail.

Most recently seen as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, Dobson has also played Gertrude in a production of Hamlet and is known for her role as Angie Watts in the soap EastEnders.
