Fern Britton Voted Off Strictly Come Dancing

TV presenter Strictly Come Dancing.
The 55-year-old former This Morning host lost out in the dance-off after finding herself in the bottom two alongside Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh.
And the judges were unanimous in deciding that Fern and partner Artem Chigvintsev's salsa was not as good as Kimblerley and Pasha Kovalev's Viennese waltz.
Craig Revel Horwood said: "It's a no brainer - Kimberley and Pasha."
Darcey Bussell added: "The cleanest performance for me was Kimberley and Pasha."
And Bruno Tonioli made it a hat-trick saying: "Well, with all due respect, I thought one couple was outstanding and that couple is Kimberley and Pasha."
Fern was effusive about her enjoyment of her time on the show in her exit interview.
She said: "This is the best party on the television, it's the best programme in the world, and I'm thrilled to have been part of it.
"Everyone else - good luck, good luck, good luck! It's the best party. You've got dancing in the drawing room, you've got snogging upstairs, you've got throwing-up in the garden. It's been fantastic. You really do live that - the throwing-up mostly!
"Artem, I've loved it, I wouldn't have swapped you for anything. There have been highs and lows, we've got to know each other pretty well, and I do adore you… and Kimberley and Pasha are fantastic."
And Artem, a man of fewer words, replied: "It has been very lovely."
Earlier this week judge Craig stuck the boot into telly rival The X Factor.
