Debbie McGee makes an epic blunder as she accidentally reveals who leaves Strictly Come Dancing TEN HOURS too early... as Reverend Richard Coles is the second contestant to go
Strictly Come Dancing's Debbie McGee reportedly made an error when she accidentally revealed that Reverend Richard Coles had left the show ten hours too early.
The results segment of the show, which is always recorded on Saturday and aired on Sunday, is always embargoed until it is shown on air - but Debbie let slip that the Reverend had left on her BBC Berkshire radio show at nine o'clock on Sunday morning.
The 58-year-old widow of magician Paul Daniels said that she was 'very sad' to see the Reverend go, before panicking and apologising and trying to cover up with another story.

She quickly said: 'He fell over at one point and had to be treated and everything else, so now we're waiting to see what's going to happen in the results show tonight'.
However, the Reverend was the next contestant to go, after he and his professional dance partner Dianne Buswell were in the dance-off against Simon Rimmer and Karen Clifton.
When asked by Tess if he had enjoyed his time on the show, Richard said that his experience was one of joy.

Upon his exit, the Reverend also heaped praise on his dance partner Dianne Buswell.
He said: 'It's been a joy. Every minute of it I've enjoyed, even when Dianne was hissing through her teeth 'feet, frame, feet, frame', it's been completely joyous.
'I only forgot to reckon into my strategy that I can't actually dance!'

Update your LBD collection with an asymmetric style by Solace London
The new series of Strictly Come Dancing is in full swing and hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly are already on a roll when it comes to style.
Between them they've been wearing everything from River Island to Rachel Zoe with a bit of Self-Portrait, Jenny Packham, Zeynep Kartal and Antonio Berardi thrown in for good measure. But you really can't go wrong with a classic little black dress!
Tess chose a one shoulder dress by Solace London for last night's results show and we love the flared sleeve. It's a style that would look amazing with swept-up hair and barely there heels and has pretty much got party season written all over it. Bravo to Tess' stylist James Yardley!

When asked by Tess what his highlight had been, Richard added: 'So many highlights, I think really it's coming together as a group of people, fellow celebs and pro dancers. It has just been a really really wonderful experience.'
When his partner Dianne was asked if she had any words for him, she said: 'I have had the time of my life and he is a friend for life.'
