Strictly Come Dancing: Lisa Riley 'so proud' to have made semi-finals

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Eliminated Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Riley has said she's so proud to have made the semi-finals.

Lisa was axed in Sunday's results show, missing out a place in this weekend's big final.

But Lisa and pro partner Robin Windsor insisted: "We are so proud, its amazing, to get as far as we got when I thought I would be first out.

"It's thanks to the public who have been completely on side, I'm so grateful."

Speaking to Zoe Ball on It Takes Two, Lisa insisted she was expecting to leave.

She said: "I said to Robin on Thursday, if I'm in the dance off there's no one I can beat."

Robin added: "I wouldn't know how to state about how proud I am, week upon week she came out and was the biggest personality, it was something none of the others had."

And getting a bit tear, Robin added: "Every single moment has been magical. We won't miss each other, we'll be in touch, we've made friends for life."

Next week the Strictly Come Dancing grand final is on Saturday 22nd December at 6:30pm with the results show later that night at 8.50pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
