Ealing girl Angellica Bell (perhaps more famous as a CBBC TV presenter) has become the eighth celebrity to be expelled from Comic Relief does Fame Academy.

Ealing’s claim to her fame comes from the 27 year old being daughter of Greenford Councillor Julian Bell. She attended Mount Carmel, then Notting Hill and Ealing High and grew up in Madely Road.

The 'Comeback Kid', as she became known after repeatedly finishing in the bottom three, was evicted following a public vote on Tuesday night. Sports presenter Ray Stubbs and Radio 1 DJ Colin Murray were saved.

Her rendition of the Kylie hit 'Can't Get You Out of My head was described as "brave" by Lesley Garrett and rather less kindly, "unbelievably excruciating" by headteacher Richard Park.

Speaking about the eviction, her father told local press: "We were really surprised she made it so far. She had a great time, she kept us all entertained and she helped make some money for charity.

Angellica described Fame Academy as a, "great way to raise money for charity - who doesn't want to be a pop star and to get glammed up?"
