Strictly Come Dancing 2011: Dan Lobb eliminated

Daniel Lobb (Strictly Come Dancing 2011)

Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Dan Lobb has become the second celeb to be eliminated from the new series of the show. The Daybreak presenter - partnered with Katya Virshilas - was axed after dancing for the second time last night.

Dan and Katya had scored 24 points out of 40 for their Viennese Waltz during this week's Broadway special, dancing Somebody To Love from the We Will Rock You musical. He found herself in the bottom two alongside Lawyer Nancy Dell'Olio and partner Anton du Beke, who had scored 20 - the lowest score of the night - for their Tango.

The judges' votes were combined with a public vote for the final results.

Asked about his Strictly highlight, Dan explained: "Oh, dancing with Katya - it's a wonderful opportunity to dance with somebody who works at the top of their profession, who is so talented."

Katya added: "I have loved every single moment of it. I loved my tennis lesson. I shall cherish that. I didn't get a chance to get up with you at 3.30am though!"
