Jamelia leaves Strictly Come Dancing - but Len Goodman disagrees with fellow
Nov 23 2015
Anita Rani, who has had to strap her right hand up in a wrist support after catching her hand in rehearsal, is beaming following the announcement that she and former Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote, from Bury, are both dancing on Strictly Come Dancing The Live Tour next year. She has also presented BBC One's Rogue Restaurants, BBC Two's Escape To The Continent, Channel 4's Four Rooms and was a part of the BBC presenting team that covered the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Her quickstep to The Monkees' I'm a Believer wasn't enough to impress the judges with everyone voting to save Peter and Janette - apart from Len Goodman.
Jamelia said she was sad to leave, but was at least pleased to have made it as far as the coveted annual Blackpool Tower ballroom extravaganza.
The petite presenter said she had to go to hospital for an X-ray - but luckily it revealed no broken bones.
Speaking to host Tess Daley about her Strictly experience the 34-year-old said: "I've danced at the Tower Ballroom and I've danced with Tristan MacManus a million times!"
He says: "I can't believe how bouncy the floor is".
On Saturday's show, Jameia had said: "After the fourth dance-off, it does take its toll".
Another of the favourites, TV star and singer Peter Andre will be doing a jive this week to Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High".
EastEnders star Kellie Bright said this is the first week her schedule has calmed down slightly.
She said: "Being in the dance off stops you from beating yourself up".
With only seven celebrities now remaining in the competition, each will have to perform two dances per show in the remaining episodes. The first from Take That who arrived in the ballroom in spectacular fashion performing their new single "Hey Boy" and the second from singer Anastacia who performed her classic track "I'm Outta Love".
