Asked for her reasons, Widdecombe explained: “Background, attitude. I worry.”
And after another contestant remarked that Markle is older than 33-year-old Prince Harry and has been married once before, she added: “Yes. I add it all up and I’m uneasy.”
In a preview clip from Tuesday’s episode, it is unclear precisely what “background” and “attitude” Widdecombe is referring to.
American actress Markle, 36, is mixed race with a Caucasian father and an African American mother. She has built a successful career as an actress and humanitarian, founded a lifestyle website, and will soon become a British citizen.
She was previously married to the actor and producer Trevor Engelson, before they divorced in 2013.
