The fifth celebrity has left Strictly Come Dancing 2017 in tonight's results.

This weekend Strictly Come Dancing's celebrity dancers and their professional partners once again each took to the dancefloor, this time for the Halloween special.

They were out again to impress the viewers at home - as well as the line up of judges Bruno Tonioli, Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood in the studio.

Mollie King and Simon Rimmer had to dance again and it was Simon who went home.

In tonight's Strictly Come Dancing results, the judges’ scores were combined with the results of the viewers’ votes to decide the lowest scoring two couples facing the dance off.

This weekend, that was Simon Rimmer and his professional partner Karen Clifton; and Mollie King and her partner AJ Pritchard.

Both couples performed their routines again; Simon and Karen performed their Viennese Waltz to Delilah by Tom Jones, and Mollie and AJ did their Cha Cha to Better The Devil You Know by Kylie Minogue in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.

After both couples had danced a second time, the judges delivered their verdicts with all four saving Mollie and AJ.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "Well, I loved this routine; I think it was more technically demanding also and, simply put, danced better, and that is Mollie and AJ.”

Darcey Bussell agreed: “Well the couple I would like to save just because they had a more competent performance is Mollie and AJ.”

Bruno Tonioli added: “I would like to pick the couple that really did, I think, the better performance in regards of content and performance value. And for that reason I would save Mollie and AJ.”

Although her vote didn't change the outcome, Head Judge Shirley Ballas agreed with her fellow judges and said she also would have saved Mollie and AJ.

When asked by host Tess Daly if he had enjoyed his time on the show, Simon said, “Do you know it has been the most amazing experience ever, you know, from the minute I walked in through the door.

"The Strictly experience is just so positive, every single person involved in it is so positive. And like, all of that lot up there, all the rest of the class of 2017, are just magnificent people. All the pro dancers are amazing....

"But the biggest thank you obviously is to Karen who has just been amazing, who has convinced this lumbering 54 year-old bloke that I could stand-up on a Saturday night and dance in front of millions of people and she has become you know, a proper friend not just to me but to all my family and for that I can’t thank you enough.”

Karen added, “A complete beginner but you know what you’ve grown to be such a great performer and I’ve loved every second really and it’s been a privilege. And thank you for all the food!”

The remaining ten couples will take to the dancefloor again next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns on BBC One on Saturday evening at 6.50pm.
