MICHELLE Visage was berated for a seat on Strictly's live arena tour and received the message in a "blunt" email.

Daily Star reports that Michelle received the disappointing news last week.

An insider said, "Michelle was approached by the producers who worked on the tour some time ago, they talked them through the data and asked if it was available.

"But then she suddenly got an e-mail saying it was not needed, the message was brief and clear.

"Michelle was confused and annoyed by the whole thing, trying hard to impress Strictly and feeling she deserved a place on the tour."

It takes place in the spring, the year after the end of the series.

While pro-dancers earn about 30,000 pounds a year, strict judges are more than threefold.

Brendan Cole previously said to Now, "My money from Strictly almost pays the bills. I do not have a car. I would like to get one, but until then I'm in the subway. I do not even own my house. I can not afford it. I rent where I live. "
