Strictly Come Dancing's Jamelia laughs off being in the dance off AGAIN


Jamelia has got so used to being in the Strictly Come Dancing dance off that she now just laughs it off.

The singer has been in the bottom two three times, saved again by the judges at the weekend.

Speaking about dancing the Foxtrot on Saturday, Jamelia recalled: "I really, really enjoyed it. Things felt very different this week, it just felt about enjoying it and the moment."

On being voted into the bottom two again, Jamelia continued: "It is becoming funny now I think for the two of us, when the light went red the two of burst out laughing we were like... hahahaha."

Jamelia's pro partner Tristan MacManus added: "Not in a bad way though, we have to prepare for ourselves for it and it's funny to us, but it's not funny that we want to be there."

Chatting on It Takes Two, where it was revealed some Strictly contestants have gone on to make the final despite also being in the dance off multiple times, Jamelia added: "I genuinely think [the dance off] is a great opportunity to take on board the comments the judges have made immediately. It's great to be like 'I heard what you said, now watch!'"

This week it's the Viennese waltz for Jamelia and Tristan as they attempt to bounce back.

"I think again, it's a great opportunity for me to sink my teeth into a ballroom number," Jamelia said. "Ballroom, I haven't been very positive or confident about it. Now I feel I've got the opportunity to get it right and that's what I'm going to do, I'm going to work hard and do a really good ballroom number."

Strictly is back on BBC One Saturday and Sunday night with the latest live performances.
