Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore was the seventh celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

During tonight’s results show Laura and her partner Giovanni Pernice found themselves in the bottom two. They were up against Ore Oduba and his partner Joanne Clifton in the dance-off.

All of the judges chose to save Ore and Joanne meaning that it was time for Laura and Giovanni to go home.

Talking about her time on the show Laura said, “Just being here, the judges, behind the scenes. I don’t think anyone realises how much goes on here, the make-up, the costume, everything and just to be part of that for a little while is amazing. And if I’m going to go against anyone then, Ore, I mean… I’m ok.”
