Jeremy Vine has become the seventh contestant to leave this year's Strictly Come Dancing competition. Despite being disappointed that he was voted off the show, the BBC Radio 2 presenter said that he had really enjoyed his time on the dancing competition and he couldn't have asked for a better dance partner than Karen Clifton.

"Well I have to say [the best part is] meeting Karen and working with her - the best dancer, the best teacher, the best friend," said the 50-year-old, but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be.

Jeremy was eliminated from the dancing competition

After counting up the public votes and the judge's scores Jeremy found himself in the dance off with singer Jamelia. Determined to give it his all the father-of-two and dance partner Karen Clifton performed their quickstep again to the song Going Underground by The Jam.

Jamelia, who has been in the dance off for the past few weeks, performed a samba to Erasure's A Little Respect with partner Tristan MacManus. Fortunately for the television presenter it did enough to impress the judges and convince them to keep her in the competition.

All four judge's chose the mum-of-one to return to the dancefloor next week but judge Darcey Bussell revealed it was a hard decision for her as "both couples performed so well tonight."

Georgia May Foote has been tipped to go on and win the competition after an impressive dance this week


After the elimination, host Tess Daly spoke to Jeremy about his Strictly experience. "We have been arguably knocking out people better for us for several weeks now and that is all down to Karen’s choreography, persistence and understanding of where I was coming from," he said, adding: "It started me on dancing, I am not quite there yet. My wife has said that at the next wedding we are at we are going to have to try and waltz but the floor will be cleared before that happens!"

Georgia May Foote was the star of Saturday night's show receiving the highest score seen on this series. She has now been tipped to go on and win this year's competition.
