Strictly Come Dancing has waved goodbye to its sixth contestant, with the elimination of Audley Harrison.
The heavyweight boxer and his professional partner, Natalie Lowe, found themselves in the bottom two at the weekend, alongside Eastenders legend Anita Dobson and her partner, Robin Windsor.
It was the fourth time the boxer had found himself in the danger zone, previously surviving against former Tory politician Edwina Currie, Sven Goran Erikssons ex-girlfriend Nancy DellOlio and singer Lulu.
But, after viewer votes and the judges' scores were combined, it was Audley that was ultimately sent home.
Harrison told hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman:
"It's been great, I had a great time I really enjoyed it."
His dance partner Lowe added:
"I just want to thank all the people at home who voted, who kept us in. It's been a great journey. Thank you!"
Next weeks show will see the final eight Strictly contestants perform live from Wembley Arena.
Catch the live show on Saturday at 6.55pm on BBC One.
