Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Tearful Laura Whitmore says she had more to give


Laura Whitmore has said a tearful goodbye to Strictly Come Dancing 2016 this evening.

Laura left in last night's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results after facing Ore Oduba in the dance off.

While it was Laura's second time in the bottom two, it was Ore's first and a shock appearance for one of the favourites to win.

The judges unanimously voted to keep Ore in the competition, sending Laura home.

Tonight she appeared on It Takes Two and things got a little emotional.

She told host Zoe Ball: "You try to remember the good times as well. At the time you're so emotional but it's not a funeral, I will see these people again. It is a shame because I feel we had a lot more to give."

Speaking of her last dance on Saturday, Laura raved: "It was so much fun. I was just really happy to get to do the Samba. I did enjoy doing it."

And she reflected: "We were here last week top of the leader board and next week we're gone.

"Everyone is so good and even Ore to be in the dance off... he's such a good friend of mine and such a great dancer. I don't feel so upset because everyone is so good."

Laura's pro partner Giovanni Pernice added: "She's a great dancer, she's been a great person to work with and I'm so proud of her journey."

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night live on BBC One, minus Laura.
