Jamelia has been given a FOURTH reprieve on Strictly Come Dancing in tonight's results.

The singer was in the dance off AGAIN tonight, but saved by the judges against Jeremy Vine, who was in the bottom two for the first time.

Jamelia said ahead of performing for the judges: "I'm sick of dancing against my friends, that's what I'm finding the hardest. I'm looking forward to rectifying my mistakes, whatever happens, happens."

She added: "I love dancing with Tristan and we've danced more than anyone else!"

The panel voted unanimously to save the Loose Women panelist ahead of Jeremy who left the competition this evening.

Speaking ahead of Sunday night's show, Jamelia had hit out at viewers who had branded her a "diva".

“People who call me a diva don’t know who I am,” the popstar said. “I’m so far from being a diva. I’m from Birmingham and I don’t think that’s possible!”

She added: “I’m not the most popular person the show. I understand why people don’t vote for me, they may not know who I am. For me it’s not a popularity contest, it’s a dancing contest.

Meanwhile, Jamelia suggested that "being in so many dance offs" meant she was a better dancer

"If anything I've had more opportunities to dance on Strictly, which helps calm your nerves," she explained. “Being in the dance off makes you stronger. It fuels me. The judges have chosen to keep me in 3 times. I hope the public can see how hard I’m trying.

“I think the public love my dances so much that they want to see them twice!”

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One next Saturday night, live from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
