Ainsley Harriott and his dancing partner Natalie Lowe have become the fourth couple to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

The pair found themselves in the dance-off against Jamelia and Tristan MacManus, after the judges’ scores were combined with the viewers’ votes.

Harriott and Lowe jived to ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ by Bill Haley & His Comets, while Jamelia and MacManus performed their foxtrot to Celine Dion’s ‘Because You Loved Me’ but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to help them survive the competition.

Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli all voted to save Jamelia and MacManus, sending Harriott and Lowe home.

After his exist Harriot said: “The judges are spot on, they know exactly what they are talking about,” he said. “I’m sad for you Natalie, I really am. I wanted to push on a little bit more but it wasn’t meant to be.”

Strictly Come Dancing is on next weekend on Saturday, October 31 at 6.35pm and Sunday, November 1 at 7.15pm on BBC One with its annual Halloween Fright Night special.
