Strictly Come Dancing Results: Lulu And Brendan's Competition Is Over
share this story
Strictly Come Dancing has said goodbye to another pair, as Lulu and partner Brendan became the latest to leave the show.
Although she was sad to leave, Lulu said: "It's been a very special experience."
The Shout singer was up against boxer Audley Harrison and his partner Nathalie in the bottom two and few expected Lulu to be sent home.
Judge Craig said he had expected Audley to take his final bow after the Guy Fawkes' Night special. "I think he's done amazingly well," he said. "But I personally think it's time to bid goodbye."
When the shock results were announced judge Bruno said: "I'm very very surprised... but she keeps getting her knickers in a twist, she needs to be consistent."
Last night Audley was criticised for having his "tongue hanging out of his head", by Craig. (Read a full review of all of last night's performances here.)
Neither Lulu or Audley performed the worst in terms of judges' scores last night, and Russell Grant was actually bottom of the leader board. However the public decided that he should stay in the competition, perhaps because of the 'comedy value' he brings to the show.
As part of his paso doble performance last night Russell rode a bucking bronco, a stunt Craig described as "astonishing".
In their first TV appearance since they announced their split, Westlife performed their number one hit Flying Without Wings on the results show. There was also a performance from host of Strictly, Bruce Forsyth, who just happens to have a new album coming out...
