Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results! Who left? Surprise dance off sees another celeb out

Last night's Strictly Come Dancing results: who went home?


Another celebrity has left Strictly Come Dancing 2016 in last night's results but who was eliminated?

This weekend the nine remaining couples danced to impress the viewers at home, as well as the judges in the studio - Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.

The panel marked all the routines before the lines opened for the viewers to vote for their favourite as usual.

In Sunday night's results, the marks from the judges for their latest dances were added together and combined with the results of the viewer vote.

Who left Strictly Come Dancing 2016 last night?


Those in the bottom were TV Presenter Laura Whitmore and her professional partner Giovanni Pernice, and BBC Sports Presenter Ore Oduba and his professional partner Joanne Clifton.

It was the second time in the dance off for Laura and it was her last as Laura left Strictly Come Dancing 2016 last night.

In the dance off, both couples performed their routines again; Laura and Giovanni did their Samba to ‘Bamboleo’ by Gipsy Kings and Ore and Joanne performed their Salsa to ‘Turn The Beat Around’ by Vicki Sue Robinson.

The judges then chose who to save and it was a unanimous decision.

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Ore and Joanne and said: “One couple danced the best I’ve ever seen them dance and I think was probably their personal best; but for me, the dance of the night and who I would like to save was Ore and Joanne.”

Darcey Bussell chose to save Ore and Joanne and said: “I think both couples danced exceptionally well tonight and it makes it very difficult but I’d like to save the couple that I believe and know performed their best, a finished performance, was Ore and Joanne.”

Bruno Tonioli chose to save Ore and Joanne and said: “First off, let me say this wasn’t a dance off, it was a dance treat. You both danced with such vibrancy, energy and entertainment value, it’s like splitting hairs here. We didn’t put you there, if you didn’t vote, don’t moan. But I have to pick one out of the two that in a way outshone everyone else, and that couple was Ore and Joanne.”


Although his vote was not needed, head Judge Len Goodman said he agreed with his colleagues and that he would have also saved Ore and Joanne.

Therefore it was Laura and Giovanni who bowed out of the competition.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 returns next Saturday and Sunday night with the latest live show.
