Strictly Come Dancing 2013 results: Rachel Riley happy to go out on a high

Rachel Riley (Strictly Come Dancing 2013)

Strictly Come Dancing's Rachel Riley has said she's happy to have gone out on a high in tonight's results.

Last night’s hair raising Strictly was full of ghosts and ghouls as hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly invited the eleven remaining couples to take to the dance floor for the Halloween special in a bid to impress judges Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli & Craig Revel Horwood, and the viewers at home.

This week it was model Abbey Clancy and her partner Aljaž Skorjanec; and TV Presenter Rachel Riley and her partner Pasha Kovalev in the bottom two, facing the dance-off to determine who would be the fifth couple voted out of the competition.

After both couples had danced a second time, the judges delivered their verdicts with Craig, Darcey and Bruno all choosing to save Abbey in the latest Strictly Come Dancing 2013 results.

Looking back at her time on the show, Rachel said: “I haven’t cried until now, I have made some amazing friends. I really enjoyed tonight, I really enjoyed yesterday’s dance so I’m really pleased to go out on a high.

"Abbey is just gorgeous, a gorgeous dancer, a gorgeous girl and I have no shame in getting knocked out to her. I have just loved it - from the make-up, to the hair - the whole show.”

Talking about her dance partner Pasha, Rachel added: “He is just the nicest person in the world. He couldn’t have looked after me better, it has just been an absolute pleasure.”

Pasha added: “Well we started from zero and look where we are now. It was amazing to work with you and I’m sorry it has to finish this way.”

Next week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 9th November at 6.30pm and will be marking Remembrance Day, with the results show on Sunday 10th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
