Naga Munchetty voted off Strictly Come Dancing

Naga Munchetty has become the fourth celebrity to depart 'Strictly Come Dancing' 2016.

The 41-year-old BBC presenter and her professional partner Pasha Kovalev were voted off the show by the judges after they found themselves in the bottom two of the viewers' vote, alongside singer Anastacia and her professional partner Brendan Cole.

Naga performed her charleston to 'Minnie The Mermaid' by Firehouse Five Plus Two - but her effort was bettered by the pop star, who performed her rumba to 'The Way We Were' by Barbra Streisand.

Asked to name her highlight from appearing on the programme, Naga said: "This week. Getting to know Pasha, working with Pasha, I've loved every minute of it, your patience, your brilliance with your choreography and just being the best teacher I've ever had."

Pasha responded: "Thank you for being the best student I've ever had, so determined and so much fun all the time."

The judges' vote was unanimous and Craig Revel Horwood said: "The couple who I thought danced actually the best in this dance-off this evening was Anastacia and Brendan."

Meanwhile, Darcey Bussell added: "It's always incredibly difficult when it gets to this and very hard but the couple I would like to save because of their performance value and natural artistry is Anastacia and Brendan."
