In tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing results show Paul Daniels was voted off, becoming the second celebrity to leave the competition.
The judges’ scores left Paul Daniels and Michelle Williams at the bottom of the leaderboard but the combination of the judges’ scores and viewer votes meant Paul Daniels and partner Ola Jordan were eliminated.
Of Paul and Ola’s dance, the judges said:
Bruno Tonioli: “It was like watching Ola and the giant pepper pot. It was entertaining in a kind of funny way. It didn’t flow – nothing in the dance flowed. A pepper pot would have been better.”
Craig Revel Horwood: “The armography was very blocky and wooden and showing absolutely no sign of expression whatsoever. The burette spin turn that you did in the centre there was infantile, I’m afraid, and very very childish. I felt you spent most of the one minute thirty ogling Ola.”
Alesha Dixon: “Paul you’re so sweet and I love that you’re really, really trying. I like the magic, I like the lunges, but I really want to see more content from you, more dancing, but it had a nice charm about it and like Len said, it was entertaining”
Len Goodman: “Parts were magical, parts were comical, parts were diabolical, but the whole thing was entertaining”
After their elimination Paul said: “I’ve had a wonderful time on Strictly Come Dancing, I really have. If I hadn’t had a good time, I’d tell you!”
The celebrities who also competed this week and escaped elimination were: Peter Shilton, Kara Tointon, Gavin Henson, Matt Baker, Patsy Kensit, Jimi Mistry, Felicity Kendal, Ann Widdecombe, Michelle Williams, Scott Maslen and Pamela Stephenson.
Tonight’s show also saw a guest performance from Pete Andre.
