Katie Piper is the latest celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2018.
During tonight’s results show, Katie and her partner Gorka Marquez found themselves in the bottom two opposite Charles Venn and Karen Clifton. Both couples performed their routines from last night again before the judges decided who was going home.
The judges chose to send home Katie and Gorka, feeling that Charles and Karen were the stronger couple.
Talking to Tess, Katie said, “I have taken a lot from this experience and it has all been really positive, and I’ll never forget this journey. Charles was the better dancer out of us two and there are some brilliant dancers in this competition and sadly I don’t think I was one of them! But I have had a great experience you know and I feel really privileged to have been here and thanks for your advice and thank you (Gorka) for all the hours! One thing as well all the public not just the audience here but the general public have been so supportive online and have voted for me the other weeks so I feel thrilled to have been here for four weeks. So thank you to everyone.”
Gorka added, “Well first of all thank you, for being such a wonderful human because you know everyone knows how much you have been through and everything but to get the chance to know you and be working with you and get to know how strong you are, how always wanting to be better and improve. For me that’s my lesson and what I learnt from you.”
It had been widely thought that Seann Walsh and Katya Jones would be in the bottom two following their kissing scandal but the couple sailed through to next week’s live show.
Tonight’s show saw a performance from Backstreet Boys and yet another spectacular routine from the pros.
