Katrina Lyndon and Tom Shilcock eliminated on So You Think You Can Dance

Katrina Lyndon

Katrina Lyndon and Tom Shilcock have become the two latest dancers to be eliminated in the 2011 series of So You Think You Can Dance. The pair were axed by the judging panel in tonight's latest live show after coming amongst the lowest placed dancers after the public vote.

Katrina and Tom found themselves in the bottom four for the first time alongside Bethany Rose and Israel tonight, after the top 10 were paired up and all performed two routines for the same time.


With head judge Nigel Lythoe busy in the US and John Barrowman stepping in to feel his place, Arlene Phillips took on the role of delivering the bad news.

"Week on week you have delighted us with the challenges you have faced having been a ballerina," Arlene told Katrina first. "Tonight however hasn't been your best night."

"Bethany, you had a slow start in the competition and then suddenly you turned things around but obviously the viewers don't feel the same way."

"This isn’t unanimous," Arlene told the pair, "But the girl leaving is Katrina.

"I've just loved every single minute of everything, I'll miss it so much. Thank you for everything, it's changed my life. Just performing here every Saturday is the most incredible feeling I'm going to miss it so much," a teary Katrina told host Cat Deeley.

Onto the guys and Arlene said simply: "Guys I'm just going to cut straight to the chase because it is a unanimous decision... the boy leaving us tonight is Tom."

"I just want to say a big thank you to all the chorographers, it's been amazing working with you," the 23-year-old said.

Bethany Rose, Israel and the rest of the remaining Top 8 will continue on to perform in next weekend's show, where the remaining pairs will be split up!

So You Think You Can Dance continues next weekend at 5:45PM
