Johnny Ball First To Get Strictly Boot
As TV presenter Richard Arnold survives the dance-off…
Strictly Come Dancing, after losing out to Richard Arnold in the dance-off.
Johnny and his dance partner Iveta Lukosiute performed their foxtrot to Everything by Michael Buble while Richard and Erin Boag did a cha cha to Love Shack by The B52s.
The judges’ decision to send Johnny home was unanimous, with all four judges commenting that ‘on content alone’ his performance wasn’t enough to see him go through.
Bruno Tonioli said the two couples' dances were even worse the second time around describing them both as 'shaky'.
On hearing the news, Johnny praised his dance partner Iveta and said, “I think for my age I did quite well. I'm so disappointed I'm leaving, I really, really am."
Topping the leaderboard this week with 32 points was Denise Van Outen, who impressed the judges with an energetic jive, despite having suffered a neck injury during rehearsals earlier in the week.
Judge Len Goodman said: “Tutti frutti what a booty! That was my cup of tea, it was so full on," while Craig Revel Horwood described it as “Fab-u-lous!”
Biggest improver of the week was Victoria Pendleton, who scored 10 points more than last week, when nerves got the better of her.
Scissor Sisters sang on the show, treating the audience to a performance of their hit Let's Have A Kiki.
