Posted on November 15, 2010

Michelle Williams and Brendan Cole became the sixth couple voted off “Strictly Come Dancing”.

The judges given their paso doble a score of 24, putting them second lowest on the leaderboard – just one up from Ann Widdecombe and Anton Du Beke. With the public vote, Michelle and Brendan were eliminated.

This weekend, “Strictly” heads to Blackpool’s famous Tower Ballroom, promising a “Vegas spectacular” from the remaining eight couples.
