Laura Whitmore and Tameka Empson are bottom two in tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results.

It's a bit of a shock result with the pair putting in solid performances on Saturday night.

Laura and her pro partner Giovanni Pernice danced the Salsa to 'Rhythm of the Night' by Valeria from Moulin Rouge to score 30 points.

Meanwhile, Tameka and Gorka Marquez's Tango to 'The Heat Is On' by Glen Frey from Beverly Hills Cop scored 28 marks.

But while the judges were generally impressed both seemingly failed io interest the viewers.

Judge Rinder, Lesley Joseph, Anastacia, Naga Munchetty and Ed Balls all leap frogged the pair once the viewer vote was added, leaving them in the bottom two.

First to be announced as in the dance off was Laura. She told host Tess Daly: "I don't know what to think..., I've just got to go out there and give it everything, give it all."

Craig Revel Horwood told her: "You are a wonderful dancer and I can't believe you're here."

Tess then confirmed that Tameka was also in the dance off. She said: "It's at that point in the competition where one couple is going to go home, I don't want to go home so I'm just going to have to pull it out."

Laura and Tameka both danced their routines from Saturday again before the judges picked who to say.

Craig and Bruno both chose to save Laura and Giovanni.

Darcey chose to save Tameka and Gorka.

Head Judge Len Goodman then had the casting vote and chose to save Laura and Giovanni.

Len said: “Well as my colleagues have said they both came out and they really went for the dance. It was full on, there was plenty of attack, as Bruno said in my opinion neither should be in the dance off but that’s the nature of the thing.

"But I’ve got to go with the couple that I felt did the more polished performance and that’s Laura and Giovanni.”

As a result it was Tameka and Gorka who found themselves leaving the competition.
