Greg is the latest celeb to leave the show

The couple found themselves in the bottom two this week along with Olympic gymnast Claudia Fragapane and her dance partner, AJ Pritchard. As a result, the two couples had to perform their dance routine from Saturday night. Greg and Natalie performed their Quickstep to Hand Jive by Cha Na Na while Claudia and AJ perform their Jive to Hey Mickey by Toni Basil in the hopes of being saved by the judges.

However, Greg and Natalie were the ninth couple to be voted off the show after all four judges chose to save Claudia and AJ. Craig Revel Horwood said:  "Well both couples I thought improved enormously and I don't really want to say goodbye to either of these couples. I have great respect for them but closer to perfection for me and the couple I’d like to save, Claudia and AJ." Darcey agreed, explaining: "It's really tough to see both these couples in the dance off and they did such a better performance tonight, but the couple I'd would like to save for the stronger technique, Claudia and AJ."

Greg spoke about his experience on the show

Bruno Tonioli sealed the couples' fate and chose to save Claudia and AJ. "Well first let me say it was so much fun watching both of you tonight," he said. "You have brought so much energy and fun to both dances but I have to pick the couple I thought was stronger both content wise and performance wise, Claudia and AJ." Head judge Len Goodman agreed that he would have saved the gymnast and her professional dance partner.

Speaking graciously about his time on the show, Greg said: "It's been one of the most of incredible things in my life. I've been very lucky in my life, I've done some amazing things but this is truly one of the best things I've done.  I've much such a good friend here."
