Anthony Ogogo is the second celebrity to leave the dancing competition Strictly Come Dancing. The Olympic boxer departs the dancefloor after receiving low scores from the judges and failing to win over the public enough for them to save him.

The 26 year-old was disappointed to see that he was in the bottom two of the leader board after his performance on Saturday night but was determined to give his survival dance everything he could.

In a bid to win over the judges Anthony and his partner Oti Mabuse performed their Eye of the Tiger Paso Doble routine again, whilst his competition Ainsley Harriott put his all into his Cha Cha with his partner Natalie Lowe.

Once the couples had completed their routines, the judges voted on who they thought should go.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell began the voting and chose to save chef Ainsley to remain in the competition.

Speaking about the dancing duos Darcey said: "Both couples did such a great job in that performance and it’s very hard to choose but the couple I would like to save is Ainsley and Natalie."

Italian judge Bruno Tonioli agreed with the other judges deciding that Ainsley should have another shot at the competition meaning that he and his partner Natalie were safely through to next week’s programme.

Disappointed but grateful for the experience Anthony said: "It’s been brilliant. I want to thank Oti she has been amazing. I feel sorry for her because she got lumbered with me, I can’t dance and I’ve got a poorly shoulder. She’s done a wonderful job with me so thank you."

Professional dancer Oti added: “I’m so proud of him. He has been the best and I think besides being a dance partner, he’s been a really, really good friend. We have an awesome friendship now and I think we will have it for a very long time so I’m really happy.”

Next week will see the remaining 13 couples dance to keep their place in the competition.
