The seventh has been voted off 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 with ten couples remaining.

As always, they were out 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.

Ruth Langsford and Jonnie Peacock had to dance again and it was Ruth who went home in a shocking result.

This weekend, that was TV presenter Ruth Langsford and her partner Anton Du Beke; and Paralympic gold medallist Jonnie Peacock and his professional partner Oti Mabuse.

Both couples performed their routines again, Ruth and Anton did their Foxtrot to Mack The Knife by Bobby Darin and Jonnie and Oti also performed their Foxtrot to Someone Like You by Adele 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 and it was a unanimous vote to save Jonnie and Oti.

Craig Revel Horwood said: “The person I think that took on the notes and criticisms that we dealt out on board and improved in the dance-off and for me personally, was the better dance, I’d like to save Jonnie and Oti.”

Darcey Bussell commented: “The couple I’d like to save on the element of difficulty and having no mistakes, and that is Jonnie and Oti.”

Bruno chose said: “Well I would like to save the couple, that for me I think improved, was cleaner and it was more emotionally moving, for that reason I save Jonnie and Oti.”

Although she did not need to vote, Head Judge Shirley Ballas said she agreed with her fellow judges and would have also saved Jonnie and Oti.

After her exit, Ruth said: “I’m disappointed for Anton because he should be going to Blackpool. He’s made this whole thing so much fun, I’ve absolutely loved it, even the judges’ comments, even Craig’s - he knows I love him really!

"All those wonderful people up there, they all deserve to be going to Blackpool. And you Anton Du Beke, are just the most fabulous man, so funny and you are a beautiful dancer and I hope we will be friends for a very long time.”

Pro partner Anton added: “It’s a funny old thing this, getting voted off Strictly Come Dancing, it never gets any easier and this is, by far the most difficult...

"The time we spent in the studio together rehearsing and laughing. The moment you jumped on me and wrapped your legs around my hips to the moment where we basically laid on the floor. You are amazing and I love you.”

The remaining eight couples will now pack their suitcases and head to Blackpool as next week the show is broadcast live from the world famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom when Strictly Come Dancing returns on BBC One.
