AMANDA KELLER IS ELIMINATED FROM DANCING WITH THE STARS

7.30pm Tuesdays on Seven

Broadcaster AMANDA KELLER is the latest celebrity to be eliminated from Seven's hit variety program while ARIANNE CAOILI earned the first perfect 10 of the competition.

AMANDA and her dance partner CSABA SZIRMAI made a quick step exit from the dance floor after performing a foxtrot and registering the lowest on a combined score of judges voting and viewer polling.

Gracefully gliding across the dance floor to Sinead O'Connor's I Want To Be Loved By You, the duo were awarded a score of 25 by the judges. AMANDA joked to partner CSABA , "I told you we needed to add another cartwheel," in response to TAMSYN and ARSEN'S gymnastic performance.

The inspirational mother of two and breakfast radio broadcaster stepped out of her comfort zone and challenged herself beyond her wildest expectations during the competition.

"I've had the time of my life. I've absolutely loved every minute of it and it has been a fantastic journey. These guys (the celebrities and dancers) are amazing and I have made a real friend in Csaba".

"The money from my votes goes to a volunteer organisation that is so inspirational. I am so grateful that I have been able to help them".

Proceeds from AMANDA'S phone votes will go to her chosen charity SYDNEY KIDS COMMITTEE.

Still in the competition, ARIANNE CAOILI is the celebrity to beat with her salsa earning the first perfect 10 for the competition and a total score of 37. ANTHONY KOUTOUFIDES' quickstep scored a 35 and gobsmacked judge Todd McKenney who didn't think he could dance like that while TAMSYN LEWIS earned a 31 despite a wardrobe malfunction during her acrobatic salsa. CHRIS HEMSWORTH followed with a 24 for his foxtrot and despite a crowd pleasing performance ANDREW GAZE came in last with a score of 20.
