They received positive comments from judges Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, totting up a respectable 27 points, which put them fourth from bottom on the leaderboard.

Weymouth and Skorjanec jive protected them from elimination with the judges saying their routine was: "stronger, cleaner and focused".

Dianne was in tears as they performed their final dance together, clearly in shock at the fact they were leaving the competition so soon. I really don't think it should have been them to go.

The YouTuber was a finalist in last year's Strictly where he was partnered with Buswell, who he is now in a relationship with, and had expected his girlfriend to stay in for the full series once more with her partner, BBC Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin.

He told host Tess Daly after the result was revealed: "I'm not going to lie I am absolutely gutted, but learning how to dance, hanging out with Dianne and the other pros and celebs".

"Thank you for being such an fantastic partner and always pushing me to be the best version of myself", he said.

However, a statement taken from the BBC's website shared on Twitter said: "As the telephone network only uses the first eight digits in a telephone number to route calls to the voting system, it is impossible for calls for different couples to be treated differently". I've loved every minute of this! Taking to her Instagram page to share a selfie of the pair, the pro dancer wrote: "My heart is broken". His work ethic is insane.

"Thank you for being such an awesome partner and always pushing me to be the best version of myself". Thank you so much for all your time and your effort.

Australian dancer Dianne said she was "sad" Griffin will not be able to demonstrate more of his "talent".

"Strictly Come Dancing" will return on Saturday (19.10.19) on BBC One.
