Robbie Williams Backs Heather Mills through Divorce and Dance
- Judges also wowed by Sir Paul McCartney's ex as she pulls off a cartwheel

Robbie Williams. Copyright LondonNet.comRobbie Williams is helping Heather Mills through her divorce from Sir Paul McCartney.

The Rudebox singer - who recently completed a stint in rehab to be treated for a prescription drug addiction - was seen in the audience watching Heather complete a stunning routine on US TV talent show Dancing with the Stars.

The pair spoke afterwards and it is alleged Robbie told the former model to "stay strong". A source told Closer magazine: "Robbie was blown away by Heather's performance on the show and went backstage to congratulate her.

The pair don't know each other but Robbie really admires Heather for her determination. "He told her to stay strong and hoped she was bearing up well through her divorce.

"Heather was surprised when Robbie turned up but was really pleased he offered his support."

The 39-year-old blonde - who lost her left leg below the knee when she was hit by a police motorcycle in 1993 - wowed the judges in last night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, performing a cartwheel during her interpretation of the jive.

"One, two three legs, I don't care how many - you did a fantastic job, said Tonioli, one of the show's judges.

Another of the judging panel, Carrie Ann Inaba agreed. "That was fantastic. You add difficulty where you don't need to because you are so good," she said.

Mills's second impressive dance in succession she backflipped during a mambo number last week ensured her continuation on the programme, despite a campaign against her on various internet sites. Instead, former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey has been voted off.

One of the secrets of Mills's successful routines has been her new, bouncier artificial leg, which is said to be more secure than her regular limb.

"There is no way that this leg is going to come off during the dancing," said Bob Watts, boss of Dorset Orthopaedic, the company that manufactured the leg. "We have made sure of that."

"We have also had to adjust the alignment of the heel, which allows Heather to balance effectively and perform her moves - like the impressive back flip."
