Jessica Wright becomes second celebrity voted off Dance Dance Dance

The former The Only Way Is Essex star performed an impressive routine to Moulin Rouge track Roxanne, but she had some incredibly tough competition.

Jessica Wright has labelled Dance Dance Dance the "most amazing experience" of her life, after being voted off the ITV competition on Sunday night (29Jan17).

The former The Only Way Is Essex star performed an impressive routine to Moulin Rouge track Roxanne, but she had some incredibly tough competition.

And after seeing performances including Lucy-Jo Hudson's flawless rendition of Christina Aguilera's Candyman routine, the judges had no choice but to send Jessica home.

After her exit, Jessica took to her Instagram page to share a picture of herself and dance partner Duane Lamonte in a dance pose, laughing together.

Alongside the picture, she wrote: "We will never stop laughing & dancing @duanelamonte85. Most amazing experience of my life & I wouldn't change a minute of it! Thank you @itv for this wonderful opportunity. Myself & Duane laughed from start to finish & ive conquered fears I never even knew I had. What a wonderful show @dancedancedance."

Of Duane, she added: "You inspire me I love you so much & our friendship will remain forever & ever. The best partner I could have ever asked for. And thank you for everyone else who came to watch me every week especially my mum @carolwright1 every time I finished a dance I would look at you & it would make me emosh! Wooooooo let's all dance like no ones watching."

Jessica appeared to have composed herself to write the post, after breaking down in tears when she spoke to Dance Dance Dance host Alesha Dixon following the announcement of the result.

"I'm so proud of myself," she smiled through her tears. "I never thought I could do this. It's been a dream come true. I love dancing so much, I did it for 10 years as a little girl."

She also thanked Duane once again, describing him as her "rock".

After Jessica was voted off, her brother Mark Wright took to his social media to congratulate her for getting as far as she did on the show, tweeting: "So proud of my sister @MissJessWright_ journey on @DanceDanceDance you smashed it girl. Love ya x"
