Jamelia has joked she won't leave even if she's voted off Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend.

The singer appeared in the bottom two at the weekend for the third time as she was saved by the judges again.

Despite having to dance off to stay in the competition repeatedly, Jamelia says she's LOVING the competition and nothing will make her go.

“If I’m voted off, I’m not going," she said. "I genuinely do not want to go. I’m not going anywhere.

“They’ll be like, ‘Ok, last dance’ and I’ll be like, ‘No, I’ll be back next week’.”

On Sunday night, Jamelia sighed after struggling for viewer votes again: "Do you know what, I've come to the conclusion that maybe the public don't like me and I just have t show the judges that I care about the competition and I want to do well and hopefully they continue to like me."

Even if she is finding it hard to win over fans of the show, speaking to the Radio Times, Jamelia vowed to put her all into every week and insisted she didn't care about winning.

She explained: “The thing with me, I’m not here with this huge competitive streak. I would love to be here until the final, because I love learning all of the new dances. I love being a part of Strictly.

“I want to go as far as I can go and achieve as much as I can achieve. I didn’t come here as a pro dancer, but I might leave here as a decent one.”

Strictly is back this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
