Cha cha cha ta-ra for Anita

ANITA Dobson lost her partner on Strictly Come Dancing -- and then lost her place on the show when viewers and judges bid cheerio to her cha cha cha.

The former EastEnders star performed the dance with Brendan Cole after a foot infection prevented her regular partner, Robin Windsor, from joining her.

But Dobson, who played Angie Watts in the soap, was upbeat about the "wonderful learning experience" she had had on the BBC reality show.
