Actress Anita Dobson has become the latest contestant to be eliminated on Strictly Come Dancing.

Having gained 30 out of 40 points from the judges, Dobson and stand-in partner Brendan Cole were eliminated when the judges' scores were combined with the public's votes.

After her elimination, Dobson paid tribute to her injured regular professional partner, Robin Windsor.

"He made this the most humorous, enjoyable, fun, wonderful learning experience you could ever imagine," she said.

"Thank you so much. Can I just say thank you to Brendan too, because without him I wouldn't have done this week."

Windsor, via telephone link-up, paid tribute to his partner by saying: "Anita darling, I just wanted to say you've been absolutely incredible and I'm so sorry I couldn't be there with you tonight.

"It has been a pleasure to work with you. You have been one of the most enthusiastic and hard-working people I've ever, ever, ever met. I'm going to miss you dearly."
