The magic is over for TV presenter Alison Hammond, who was voted off BBC's Strictly Come Dancing after her Charleston failed to rouse the judges.

The This Morning showbiz reporter said she had "an absolute ball" competing alongside professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

Brummie Hammond found herself in the bottom two alongside presenter Caroline Flack following the public vote, but was sent packing by the judges. It means she misses out on performing in Blackpool next week, considered a highlight of the Strictly calendar.

Flack and partner Pasha Kovalev performed their waltz to Three Times a Lady by The Commodores while Hammond and Skorjanec did their Charleston to Friend Like Me, from the film Aladdin.
