After dancing her way through five weeks of the competition, Teuila Blakely's journey on Dancing with the Stars NZ came to an end last night.

The actress has been one of the more memorable contestants on the TV3 reality show, whether she was wowing the judges with her rumba or dividing opinions with her controversial cha-cha.

While we'll miss seeing her on the dancefloor, the feisty Shortland Street star said she had an "incredible time" on the show with her "amazing" partner Scott Cole.
