Kirsty Gallacher was the fifth celebrity eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2015 during tonight’s results show.
The sports TV presenter and her partner Brendan Cole found themselves in the bottom two with Jamelia and her partner Tristan MacManus. After both couples performed their routines from last night again, it was over to the judges to decide which couple would be staying in the competition.
Craig Revel-Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli decided to save Jamelia and Tristan. Len Goodman agreed with his fellow judges meaning that Kirsty and Brendan were going home.
Asked if she had enjoyed her time on the show, Kirsty said, “It’s been a wonderful experience but Jamelia deserves it more than me and I really mean that, she’s a very natural dancer. I did my best but it was time to go! My Strictly highlight was the Viennese Waltz, it was a wonderful week and it went really well, it felt great and it was a good dance for me. I just want to say thank you to Brendan who’s been incredible and I really mean that. He’s an incredible friend and dancer and so supportive.”
Brendan added, “When we got partnered up together I was very excited and I’ve seen somebody who had no dance experience and not really any performing experience, turn it around and become quite a performer. I’m so proud of that last performance and I’m proud of you.”
Tonight’s results show featured a performance from James Morrison, who was joined by Strictly pros Kristina Rihanoff and Gleb Savechenko, and it opened with a fantastic pro dance.
