Jamelia has said she hopes to inspire people with her Strictly Come Dancing journey.

The popstar was in the bottom two on Sunday night but once again was saved by the judges.

It was Jamelia's fourth reprieve as Jeremy Vine instead got the boot in the latest results show.

Speaking at the weekend, Jamelia revealed: “I came in with a negative sense of myself when it came to my dancing. Every week I’m building up my confidence.

"I’d like people to look at my journey and think anyone can do it."

She added: "I hope it inspires people to give something a go."

Loose Women panellist Jamelia went on to tell the Daily Mirror: “My youngest daughter keeps telling me to try my hardest. She’s an avid dancer and understands the significance of the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

"Seeing her mummy dance there would be greatest thing ever.”

Meanwhile, Jamelia told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper her daughters were also the reason she had avoided wearing the skimpiest of outfits that Strictly has to offer.

She explained: "I think it’s important not to be too risqué. If they see me on live TV in something too skimpy then it gives them license to do so in the future. So I’m trying to keep it slightly more modest.

"I don’t want to look too naked on TV, basically, considering I have impressionable daughters."

Strictly Come Dancing returns next Saturday and Sunday night on BBC from Blackpool.
