Tina O'Brien voted out of 'Strictly Come Dancing' as Ann's partner says she won't quit

01 NOVEMBER 2010

Former Coronation Street actress Tina O'Brien has become the latest celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing.

The 27-year-old and her partner Jared Murillo failed to impress with their Argentine tango, and they found themselves in the bottom two alongside Felicity Kendal and Vincent Simone.

And a combination of the judges' scores and the viewers' votes meant Tina was eliminated from the competition.

"I'm going to miss everything. I've had the best time ever and I can't thank you all enough," the star said as she became the fourth contestant to leave the show.

"And I just want to say sorry to Jared because I just wanted to do more and I'm really sorry.

"My love of dancing is something I want to carry on for the rest of my life."

Tina's exit comes just two weeks after she contracted chicken pox and was forced to pull out of the chance to perform the rumba.

One lady who did make it through to the next round was viewers' favourite Ann Widdecombe.

And according to her partner Anton du Beke, the former politician won't be following in John Sergeant's footsteps and quit the competition. But, he admits, he is unsure whether they will make it to the finals.

"Maybe she will continue to be swept along for a time. But we will never be top of the leader board with the judges, so we are at the mercy of the public," he said.

"I don’t worry about it because I can't control it. All I can control is what happens on the dance floor and hope that viewers enjoy it."
