Ben Cohen leaves Strictly Come Dancing

The rugby hunk leaves the competition.

Ben Cohen is the latest celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

During tonight’s results show the former rugby star and his partner Kristina Rihanoff found themselves in the bottom two. They were joined by Mark Benton and his partner Iveta Lukosiute who were in the bottom two for the third week running.

First to dance was Mark and Iveta with their Foxtrot followed by Ben and Kristina with their Charleston. Over to the judges…

Craig said both couples made mistakes but chose Ben and Kristina. Darcey saved Mark and Iveta based on tonight’s performance. Bruno said the mistakes were obvious but chose to save Mark and Iveta. Len chose to save Mark and Iveta saying their mistake was smaller than Ben and Kristina’s.

The show opened tonight with a pro dance set to a baking theme. Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry made a surprise appearance at the end of the routine emerging from a cake. Il Divo stopped by for a performance as Aljaz Skorjanec and Kristina Rihanoff danced.

Tune into Strictly Come Dancing next Saturday at 6.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD to find out how the remaining couples get on during Musicals work. See all the action from tonight’s show in our gallery below:
