by Lisa McGarry


Former jockey, Richard Dunwoody has become the second celebrity to be booted off Strictly Come Dancing.

Dunwoody took on Coronation Street star Craig Kelly in the dance-off but Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Alesha Dixon all voted to save Kelly.

The jockey, who twice won the Grand National, said: “It’s been an unbelievable experience.

“It’s just been tremendous.”

He said partner Lilia Kopylova had done a “tremendous job”.

She described Dunwoody was “by far the most hard working partner I have had.”

“And finally I’m going to learn how to ride horses,” she said as she hugged him.
