Jamelia leaves Strictly Come Dancing

Jamelia has been voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Loose Women' panellist found herself in the dance-off for the fifth time this series but her luck ran out as three of the judges - Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell - chose to save Peter Andre.

Speaking after her exit, she said: "I'm sorry to go. I've had the most fantastic time. I've met the most amazing set of friends. I thought I'd get to week three, but I'm here at the Tower Ballroom.

"I've said it over and over again - I could not have had a better partner than Tristan. He's so positive and he really has believed in me. And I think it's down to him why I've made it all the way to Blackpool. Thank you."

Whilst her partner Tristan MacManus added: "Jamelia's great. And even tonight, it's a completely different dance we've just done. Unfortunately, someone else did a completely different dance as well, which was unbelievable."

Meanwhile, Jamelia previously admitted being in the dance-off has been a positive experience for her as it has taught her to treat every dance as her last.

She said: "Being in the dance off stops you from beating yourself up. It reminds you to enjoy yourself when you're doing it because this could be your last dance."
