Warning: If you have not seen this week’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing and do not wish to know who was voted on please do not read on.


BBCIt’s that time of the week again as another Strictly Come Dancing contestant waltzes out of the competition. Last week saw former EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy exit the competition after she ended up in the bottom two with Hollyoaks actor Ricky Whittle. As Cassidy exited the show she was given a standing ovation from the studio audience.


This week saw the quarter-finals for Strictly Come Dancing and the judging panel were joined by Darcey Bussell as a special one-off guest judge. Primeval actress Laila Rouass and her partner Anton du Beke suffered at the hands of the judges facing tough criticisms from all five judges after their two dances. In the bottom two, and therefore in the dance-off, this week were Laila Rouass and Ricky Whittle – who was also in last week’s dance-off against Natalie Cassidy. 


Judges Craig, guest-judge Darcey Bussell and Alesha voted too save actor Ricky Whittle and his dance-partner Natalie Lowie. Len and Bruno were not required to vote as Ricky and Natalie had the majority of the judges. This means that actress Laila Rouss and Anton du Beke will not be back next week and are out of the competition.
