Instead it was ex-Destiny's Child star Michelle Williams who was sent home after her Paso Doble failed to impress either the judges or the public.

She and partner Brendon Cole found themselves in the bottom two alongside Felicity Kendal and Vincent Simone.

On finding out she had been eliminated Williams said: "Of course I'm sad about leaving but I don't have to worry about being in the bottom two again."

When asked to name the best thing about her Strictly appearance, she added: "Just making new friends and dancing with probably the most amazing dancer [on earth]."

And her exit didn't surprise the judges after the result was revealed judge Bruno Tonioli commented: "I have to be honest, the competition is so fierce. Michelle tried very hard but it didn't quite come to fruition. The effort was there but the result wasn't what it should have been and the public saw that."

Ann Widdecombe made it through to next week's show, which will be held at the Blackpool tower, despite being at the bottom of the judge's leaderboard.
Her foxtrot was described as "laboured" and "disorientated" as she was awarded just 20 points out of a possible 40 on Saturday night's show.
The 63 year-old wore wore a pink dress and shawl as she danced to Frank Sinatra's You Make Me Feel So Young with partner Anton du Beke.

And it seems that Widdecombe is going nowhere. According to Boylesports Felicity Kendal is the 6/4 favourite to be the next person eliminated.  While Patsy Kensit is priced at 4/1 that she will be the next to go.
Countryfile presenter Matt Baker has odds of 6/4 with Betfred, Bet365 and Skybet to win the show. Scot Maslan has odds of 9/4 with Boylesports and Betfred to win and 2/1 with William Hill. Kara Tointon has odds of 5/1 with Bwin, Victor Chandler and Betfred. Ann Widdecomber has odds of 8/1 with William Hill, Paddypower and Stanjames to win the show.
