Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Colin Salmon blames height on his exit!

Colin Salmon (Strictly Come Dancing)

Colin Salmon has blamed his exit from Strictly Come Dancing on his height.

The Hollywood actor left in tonight's latest Strictly Come Dancing 2012 results, after a second week in the dance off with Richard Arnold.

Speaking to The Sun after his elimination last night, Colin claimed his height difference with partner Kristina Rihanoff was tough to get over.

"It's difficult when you have such a height difference," he told the newspaper "Aesthetically, I don't think it will ever be a pleasing sight to see a tall guy with a short girl. It will never be that standard ballroom look, so we were always having to fight that.

"Kristina is an excellent dancer, no question. But I was puzzled by why they put us together. Maybe they thought I could pull it off - everyone kept telling me what a wonderful actor I was, although one week that seemed to be a good thing and another it seemed to be a problem!

He joked: "If I took a stride Kristina had to take two!"
