Former 'Good Life' star Felicity Kendal has become the seventh celebrity to be voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' but admits the time was right for her to go

Felicity Kendal has become the seventh celebrity to be voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former 'Good Life' star and her professional dance partner Vincent Simone were voted off the BBC One show after failing to impress viewers with their routine, and Felicity admitted she felt ready to go.

She said: "I absolutely loved the last dance and I think the nicest possible way to end it is to do it with a dance that you were pleased with; that the judges liked, that the people liked, what can be better? I am sitting in a pot of honey and I am fit - so what could be better?"

Felicity, 64, said she got a lot further in the competition than she expected and loved every minute of her time on the show.

She added: "I think the public really took to me much more than I ever hoped. I was absolutely thrilled to bits getting as far as I did. I really came out of it thinking, 'Wow! That was a total success' as far as time and experience. I couldn't actually have been happier."

Despite being voted off, Felicity refused to criticise contestant Ann Widdecombe, who continues to stay in the show despite always getting the lowest scores from the show's judges.

She said: "This show is actually for the public and the judges to decide what goes and who goes where. I don't think it is appropriate for somebody who is in it to start brandishing opinions."

Alongside Ann, other stars left in the competition include Kara Tointon, Scott Maslen, Pamela Stephenson, Patsy Kensit, Gavin Henson and Matt Baker.
