Strictly Come Dacing 2012: Colin Salmon relieved to still be in the show

Colin Salmon (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Colin Salmon has confessed he's relieved to still be on the show.

It was close call for Colin at the weekend when he fell into the bottom two on Sunday night's results show with Sid Owen.

Darcey, Craig and Bruno all opted to save Colin, but Len said he would've sent the Hollywood star home.

It was a wake up call for Colin, who said he's now going to put everything into this Saturday night's performance.

"It's a great relief to still be here, I don't think I've ever experienced anything like that in my life," said Colin about the dance off. "I'm sad to see Sid go but I'm relived.

"I'm just looking forward to the next dance again and getting back into training."

Also looking forward to the week ahead was Michael Vaughan, who was a surprise scoreboard champ at the weekend.

Described as a "miracle" by Bruno, Michael went from being in the bottom two to scoring 31 points alongside Kimberley Walsh and Victoria Pendleton.

"It's going to be the same again, sleeping bags in the rehearsal rooms and no lunch," he joked with partner Natalie Lowe.

Tune in to this week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
