Alexandra Burke was in the bottom two in tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2017 results.

It was the second time in the dance off in as many weeks for Alexandra, despite being top of the scoreboard.

The result means Alexandra would have had to be bottom of the public votes after topping the judges' marks on Saturday night.

On Saturday, Alexandra and her pro partner Gorka Marquez danced the Charleston to Supercalifragilistic from Mary Poppins to score a near perfect 39 points from the judges.

Alexandra was in the bottom two with Davood Ghadami. He and pro dancer Nadiya Bychkova had performed the Argentine Tango to The Phantom Of The Opera from The Phantom Of The Opera, scoring 29 marks from the panel.

Alexandra placed joint top in the leaderboard whereas Davood was joint bottom of the scores.

As usual, the results from the public vote were added to the judges' scores to decide the bottom two in the dance off tonight.

First to be announced as in the dance off were Davood and Nadiya.

Davood reacted: "It's to be expected when you're down there on the table but it's a great dance to do again."

Before the pair danced again, Strictly judge Shirley Baallas advised: "Hold your core, strength your spine but otherwise bring us those wonderful performances you bought us week after week."

After also being announced as in the dance off, Alexandra said: "We're gutted but we're going to try our best again and what matters is we had fun. It's a dance we've been able to laugh and smile."

Craig Revel Horwood said: "I cannot believe you're in the dance off, it's crazy. There's not much you can do to improve it. I want you to go out there and dance for your life."

Both Alexandra and Davood danced again for the judges, who had to decide which couple should stay in the competition.

Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli will voted to save Alexandra and Gorka.

Therefore it was Davood and Nadiya who bowed out of the competition.
