Daisy Lowe and her partner Aljaž Skorjanec are the latest couple to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The pair, who took 6th place on the leaderboard after Saturday night's performance, were in the bottom two along with Greg Rutherford and his professional partner Natalie Lowe, and therefore had to perform in the Dance Off to remain in the competition.



Daisy thanked Aljaž for the experience

Daisy and Aljaž performed their Salsa to Groove in the Heart by Deee-Lite while Greg and Natalie performed their Paso Doble to Tamacun by Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Although judge Bruno Tonioli chose to save Daisy and Aljaž, saying: "What a clash of titans, Venus the Goddess of Love and Mars the God of War both wonderful, but for me I kinda found the Goddess of Love irresistible, Daisy and Aljaž," his fellow judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Len Goodman chose to save Greg and Natalie.

Craig said: "Well this couple totally and absolutely nailed the dance this time round, and that couple is Greg and Natalie."

"Both couples upped their game beautifully, gave great performances making it very difficult, but the couple that had more dynamic effect, Greg and Natalie," Darcey added.

Len had the deciding vote choose to keep Greg and Natalie in the competition. He said: "Well obviously because it's a split decision that shows the closeness of this competition however I have to go with my brain not my heart and my brain tells me for a far more polished and technical performance I go with Greg and Natalie."

Speaking of her experience on the show, the model said: "I've loved every minute, everyone here is so unbelievable you have no idea!

"The make-up, costume, production, cameras, everyone, the judges, thank you so much for everything I've loved every moment.  Hang on, I've missed one, my hero (to Aljaž), thank you for everything!"

The professional dancer thanked Daisy, saying: "Firstly thank you, you've been the most joyous in rehearsals. On the weekends, you've taught me so much, you are the most beautiful person, inside and out, you're a beautiful dancer and thank you for making this Strictly unforgettable for me, thank you."
