After leaving the show yesterday, Strictly Come Dancing contestant Lulu has blamed the height of Brendan Cole for her failures.

Following a dance-off with Audley Harrison, the singer became the 5th act to leave the show.

Speaking afterwards she said: “He (Brendan) was far too tall for me to dance with.”

“I put a brave face on for the cameras and then cried when I got home.”

“I’ll miss Strictly so much. I know everyone says this but it really does feel like being part of a family.”

“I’d even started to tolerate Brendan, but it was a mistake being partnered with him in the first place.”

“You are supposed to be just a little shorter than the male partner, but I was staring at his chest the whole time we were dancing.”

There are now only nine acts left on the show, with Harry Judd the favourite to be crowned the winner. Other acts in with a chance are Jason Donovan and Chelsee Healy.

In fact, Chelsee was the stand out performer at the weekend with Jennifer Grey – who acted as a guest judge – hugely impressed by the Waterloo Road actress.

The American said: “You’re the baby in the competition. Well after that performance, no one is going to put baby in the corner.”

Elsewhere in Strictly Come Dancing news, Anita Dobson has admitted that her husband – Queen rocker Brian May – is finding it hard to cope with her punishing schedule on the show.

She revealed yesterday: “He’s finding it hard ­because I am not around all that much and I just eat, sleep, drink, talk Strictly.”

All in all, it was another very eventful weekend on Strictly Come Dancing and one that will have people excited to tune in next week.

With only nine acts remaining, we are starting to reach the business end of the competition.
