Vanessa Feltz eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing

Broadcaster and her pro partner James Jordan lose out in the dance-off to Julien Macdonald and Janette Manrara


Radio 2 DJ Vanessa Feltz is the second celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2013. 


The broadcaster and her professional dance partner James Jordan were knocked out of the competition after losing a tense dance-off to fashion designer Julien Macdonald and his pro dance partner Janette Manrara.

Julien and Janette performed a Jive to Everybody Needs Somebody To Love by the Blues Brothers and Vanessa and James danced a Tango to Lay All Your Love On Me by Abba.

Craig, Darcey and Bruno all chose to save Julien Macdonald, meaning Vanessa was eliminated.

Head judge Len Goodman did however have some conselation for Feltz, saying: “Funnily enough Vanessa, I thought you danced a little better in that second dance, however I would have gone for Julien and Janette.”

Feltz said: “I will miss everything, especially James and dancing, the glamour, the sequins and the fun of it all. Thank you very much indeed for having me, it’s been a lovely lovely time.”


Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday 19 October at 6:30pm on BBC1.
