Kate Silverton is the eighth celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2018.

The newsreader faced Graeme Swann in the dance-off during tonight’s results show. Kate danced again with her partner Aljaž Škorjanec while Graeme did his routine for a second time with partner Oti Mabuse.

After both couples danced again, it was up to the judges to decide who they wanted to keep in the competition. All of the judges chose to keep Graeme and Oti and send home Kate and Aljaž.

Talking about her time on the show Kate said, “You know I’m actually weirdly perversely, not that I would have wanted to go out, but on a night like tonight in such a place, I couldn’t have asked for anything better really. I got to dance twice, went up in a hot air balloon twice, and I loved it twice.”

“We have had what? Eleven weeks. And you have got me ballroom dancing. I am forever grateful to this man”

Aljaz added, “I can say it has been eleven weeks, I have to say we started every single dance from scratch and I am so impressed. Every week going out there and delivering incredible performances, for someone that has never performed in her life I am so incredibly proud of you. You have taught me so much, you’re such an incredible woman, you’re an incredible mother and thank you honestly it has been an amazing series. I’m never going to forget it and thanks to all of you who supported us.”

Tonight’s show featured a performance of Out of Our Heads by Take That.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday 24th November at 6.50pm on BBC One. Take a look at all the action from tonight’s show in our gallery below:
