Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams has become the latest star to be voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' last night (14.11.10)

Michelle Williams was the sixth celebrity to be voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' last night (14.11.10).

The former Destiny's Child singer and her dance partner Brendan Cole found themselves in the bottom two - alongside actress Felicity Kendal and dancer Vincent Simone - after failing to win over viewers.

Michelle - who had taken part in the dance-off twice before to fight for her place in the BBC One competition - admitted she was "sad" about leaving.

She joked: "At least I don't have to worry about being in the bottom two again."

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Alesha Dixon, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli blasted the 30-year-old star's attempt at the paso doble on Saturday night (13.11.10) after she lost her balance halfway through the performance, with Craig describing the dance as "very stiff and aggressive".

However, the result came as no surprise to her professional partner Brendan Cole who last week predicted their days were "numbered" because Michelle didn't have the same public backing as the other stars.

He said: "Michelle's not in 'Coronation Street', 'EastEnders', or in people's living rooms every week. She's from America, so we don't have a massive fan base I suppose between the pair of us."

Michelle is now urging the public to back former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe to win.

She said the ex-MP - who was saved by the public vote, despite the judges describing her foxtrot as "laboured" and "disorientated" - was an "inspiration".
