Michael Vaughan has said he's loved his time on Strictly Come Dancing 2012, after getting the axe tonight.
After three times in the dance off, this evening was finally Michael's time to say goodbye as he was eliminated in the latest Strictly Come Dancing 2012 results.
Speaking after his exit, Michael said “I’ve had a ball. Nine weeks ago I had never been on a shiny floor, and I’ve got to December. September, October, November and still dancing in December.
"I’ve drained every ouce of dance ability out of my body because of this lady… everything about this show, the judges and everyone backstage, all the contestants have been great, I’ve got new friends that I’ve made for life."
Michel was in the bottom two with Nicky Byrne, and Michael admitted: "Nicky thoroughly deserved that win, he wiped the floor with me!
"I’ve had a ball, and the real winner for me is this one [Natalie]. She got me to the ninth week, which is quite remarkable.”"
And Natalie reflected “Words can’t describe how incredible you are. Thank you so much for making this dream come true. I’m sorry I couldn’t have taken you further.”
