Strictly Come Dancing waltzed its way to a massive 11.5million viewers this weekend, as Anita Dobson danced her last dance on the BBC One competition.
The reality show once again beat ITV1s X Factor which only managed to attract 9.99million viewers.
The weekends editions saw the former Eastenders actress lose her place in the contest, after falling into the danger zone alongside Holly Vallance and her professional partner, Artem Chigvintsey.
Dobson danced the cha cha cha with Strictly's Brendon Cole, after her usual partner, Robin Windsor, was forced to miss the show due to a foot infection.
She told hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman of her admiration for Windsor, saying:
"He made this the most humourous, enjoyable, fun, wonderful learning experience you could ever imagine. Thank you so much.
"Can I just say thank you to Brendan too, because without him I wouldn't have done this week thank you."
It was also announced that next weeks quarter final is to have a movie night theme.
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One next Saturday at 7pm.
