Actor Jimi Mistry became the fifth celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend - despite receiving his highest score ever.
The 37-year-old East is East star scored 32 out of 40 for his quickstep on Saturday night and was praised by the judges.
Bruno Tonioli dubbed his dance with his partner Falvia Cacace "very entertaining" and Alesha Dixon said that he makes "everybody smile", but that wasn't enough to save him from the public vote.
He was given a standing ovation from the studio audience and the judges as he and Flavia took to the floor for their final dance. Mistry could also be seen wiping tears from his eyes.
He backed Ann Widdecombe to go on and win the competition, saying: "I think Ann has a very good chance of going all the way.
"It is funny and she's really trying and, bless her, she's actually going out there and gets a bit miffed if she doesn't get good scores because she wants to dance and I know Anton wants to do well"
