Strictly hopeful Ashley Roberts survived being in the bottom two again this week, but what is her dancing history like? Former Pussycat Doll's dancing experience revealed.

Ashley Roberts, 36, found herself in the bottom two of Strictly Come Dancing 2018 for the second week in a row.

The pop star-turned-tv presenter, who has been dancing since the age of three, did just enough to survive another week after Charles Venn became the latest celeb to bid farewell to the dancing programme.

As American-born Ashley picks herself up to dance another day, here's a closer look at her performing history.

Ashley, who was selected as a Dancing On Ice judge for two years, has extensive experience in many areas of dance.

Having begun dancing as a toddler, the former Pussycat Doll trained in ballet, tap, modern and lyrical during her school years.

Despite receiving a huge backlash from disgruntled Strictly fans about her appearance in this year's Strictly, Ashley claimed that her pro training didn't cover areas of dance learned during the show.

She responded to critics by saying: "The Latin and Ballroom world is foreign to me."

Ashely quit The Pussycat Dolls in 2010, but has since admitted that she 'missed performing'.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7pm on BBC1.
