Anita Dobson has been voted off the BBC dance reality show "Strictly Come Dancing" after her nine-week stint.

The former EastEnders actress, who lost her regular partner Robin Windsor to a foot infection, partnered with Brendan Cole to perform a cha cha cha to Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl."

Though the pair received mostly positive comments from the "Strictly Come Dancing" judges and garnered 30 out of 40 points, Anita and Brendan landed in the bottom two along with Holly Vallance and Artem Chigvintse.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood also criticised Anita's performance and said there was "a lack of sharpness" and "no true dynamic to it," the Metro has reported.

After host Tess Daly announced the results of the phone vote, Anita displayed composure and still remained upbeat about the "wonderful learning experience" she had on the BBC reality show.

"He (Robin) made this the most humorous, enjoyable, fun, wonderful learning experience you could ever imagine," said Anita, while thanking Windsor.

"Thank you so much. Can I just say thank you to Brendan too, because without him I wouldn't have done this week?" she added.

After the final results were declared, Windsor made a telephonic-link appearance and applauded the star and paid tribute to her performing abilities.

"Anita darling, I just wanted to say you've been absolutely incredible, and I'm so sorry I couldn't be there with you tonight.

"It has been a pleasure to work with you. You have been one of the most enthusiastic and hard- working people I've ever, ever, ever met. I'm going to miss you dearly," said Windsor.

The celebrity dance show saw a performance by U.S. singer and rapper Cee Lo Green of his pop smash hit "Forget You."
