Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Edwina Currie has become the first celeb to be eliminated from the new series of the show. The former Conservative MP and novelist - partnered with Vincent Simone - was axed after dancing for the second time last night.
Edwina and Vincent had scored 36 points out of 80 for their first two dances, a Foxtrot and Cha-Cha-Cha. She found herself in the bottom two alongside Boxer Audley Harrison and partner Natalie Lowe, who had scored 43 for his Salsa and Waltz.
The judges' votes were combined with a public vote for the final results, which saw some surprises.
Nancy Dell'Olio, partnered with Anton Du Beke, managed to survive elimination despite scoring a miserable 26 out of 80, coming bottom of the scoreboard.
Edwina said of her exit: “Some couples will stay in because of their personalities, even if they can’t dance or because they’re entertaining.
