Jude Dobson is the first contestant to be eliminated from this season's Dancing with The Stars.

After dancing a less-than-perfect foxtrot the votes were in and Dobson was eliminated.

Despite all three judges telling Dobson she had improved since her last performance, it wasn't enough to keep her in the competition.

Aside from her improvement, the judges had some harsh words for Dobson.

"Your footwork was not perfect, a little clonky at times," said Julz Tocker.

"I would have loved to have seen a little more musicality, especially with a foxtrot," said Rachel White.

Dobson and her partner scored a total of 18 - an improvement of their score of 14 the previous week.
