Jessica Robinson's hopes of landing the lead role in The Wizard Of Oz ended when she was voted off the BBC One reality show Over The Rainbow.

The 18-year-old from Middlesbrough, who was the second contestant to lose out in this weekend's double elimination, said competing had been "the best experience" of her life.

She said: "This has changed my life, it's changed my life as a performer and as a person, I'm stronger than ever. I've loved it, and these girls... well I can't wait to go and see one of them on stage."

She was forced into a sing-off with Danielle Hope after the pair received the fewest public votes.

The pair sang Take That Look Off Your Face from Tell Me On A Sunday in a bid to stay in the contest.

Andrew Lloyd Webber eventually decided to save Danielle, but said: "I say this with the heaviest heart in the entire world, Jessica you are so wonderful and quirky, you're a real star in the making."

Jenny Douglas, 18, from Edinburgh, was eliminated from the show on Saturday night.

She found herself in the bottom two alongside fellow Dorothy hopeful Lauren Samuels after they received the fewest viewers' votes.

Vying to stay in the competition, the pair sang Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water.

But Douglas's rendition of the classic song failed to convince musical impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber he should keep her in the show.
