Charlotte Hawkins is the third celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2017.

The Good Morning Britain presenter and her partner Brendan Cole found themselves in the bottom two with EastEnders star Davood Ghadami and his partner Nadiya Bychkova. Both couples competed in the dance-off before the judges delivered their verdict.

Davood and Nadiya did their Viennese Waltz to Say You Love Me by Jessie Ware and Charlotte and Brendan performed their Jive to Marry You by Bruno Mars.

All of the judges decided to save Davood and Nadiya, which meant that Charlotte and Brendan’s Strictly journey was over.

Talking about her time on the show Charlotte said, “I’ve had an amazing time, such an amazing time, it’s been brilliant from start to finish, it really has been. A huge thank you to Brendan who has just been fantastic, we’ve had such a great time going through all the dances, you’ve always been there for me, getting my back, there with the support. A big thank you to everyone that voted, I had so much support from friends, colleagues, online, it’s been amazing and I loved the chance to come out here and dance. I was trying to get better, I’m going out knowing that I gave it my best and that’s all you can do.”

Brendan added, “Quite often you stand in this position and you go, ‘hey it was our time to go’ and perhaps today it was our time to go. Not often you stand here with such sadness and go ‘I’m going to miss this and I’m going to miss hanging out with this girl.’ I’m going to miss dancing with her, I’ve had one of the best Strictly’s in 15 years and it’s hard for me to even say that and I feel really emotional.”

The results show featured a performance from Gregory Porter singing a cover of the Nat King Cole song, Smile and a spectacular professional group dance.

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 continues at 6.35pm Saturday on BBC One. See all of the action from tonight’s results show in our gallery below:
