Anita Dobson Leaves Strictly Come Dancing
After nine weeks in the competition, actress Anita Dobson has been voted out of Strictly Come Dancing 2011.
This weekend Anita performed a Cha Cha Cha to 'Uptown Girl' by Billy Joel with Brendan Cole. Brendan stepped in to dance with Anita after her regular dance partner Robin Windsor was unable to dance due to an injury.
During the Results Show it was announced that Anita and Brendan were in the bottom two with Holly Valance and Artem Chigvintse. After the final result was revealed, Robin Windsor appeared via telephone linkup to pay tribute to his partner:
"Anita darling, I just wanted to say you've been absolutely incredible, and I'm so sorry I couldn't be there with you tonight. It has been a pleasure to work with you. You have been one of the most enthusiastic and hard- working people I've ever, ever, ever met. I'm going to miss you dearly".
We were the first on the floor to capture the remaining contestant's first reactions after the result:
