David Tennant Supports Arabella Weir's Kylie Act

David appeared on BBC1 charity dance contest Let's Dance For Sport Relief tonight, showing his support for his friend and former landlady Arabella Weir.

Arabella competed in the latest round of Let's Dance, performing Kylie Minogue's 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head'. David, interviewed during the show, said that he was well and truly gobsmacked by the performance and hadn't realised that she had it in her. He confessed "My breath is taken away" and thought that Arabella could probably find some work as a Kylie tribute act to give the singer a night off occasionally as he "couldn't slip a bus ticket between them".

Judges Tim Minchin, Katy Brand and Ed Byrne were also very complementary about the routine.

Unfortunately Arabella's Let's Dance adventure ended that night as she failed to make it through the viewer's vote along with BBC presenter Kirsten O'Brien. Overall winners were actors Tyger Drew-Honey and Dani Harmer, with Omid Djalili being voted through by the judges ahead of DJ Scott Mills and singer Ollie Murs.

The final of Let's Dance For Sport Relief is on BBC1 on Saturday 17th March
