'A big thank you to everyone that voted, I had so much support from friends, colleagues, online, it's been amazing and I loved the chance to come out here and dance.
'I was trying to get better, I'm going out knowing that I gave it my best and that's all you can do.'

Professional Brendan Cole showered his partner with compliments upon their exit, saying: 'Quite often you stand in this position and you go, 'hey it was our time to go' and perhaps today it was our time to go.
'Not often you stand here with such sadness and go 'I'm going to miss this and I'm going to miss hanging out with this girl.
'I'm going to miss dancing with her, I've had one of the best Strictly's in 15 years and it's hard for me to even say that and I feel really emotional.'

Davood performed better on the night, scoring 29 points for his Viennese Waltz to Jessie Ware's Say You Love Me.
The judges unanimously chose to save Davood and his partner Nadiya Bychkova in the dance-off, with judge Bruno Tonioli saying: 'Without a shadow of a doubt, I have to pick the couple who actually danced even better than Saturday night.'

After scoring a sensational high of 39 points for a diva-tastic jive, singer Alexandra Burke seemed to be on cloud nine after making it through to next week's competition.
Speaking to host Claudia Winkleman after the result, Alexandra was joined by a fluffy pink teddy bear, who she bought on for moral support, after breaking down with emotion in Saturday's show.
Davood and Nadiya will join the other 11 remaining couples to take to the floor again this Saturday.
