The BBC Radio 1 DJ and his professional partner Joanne Clifton failed to impress viewers with their Foxtrot to the theme from 'The Addams Family'.
And judges Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood were similarly unimpressed, and voted to save TV presenter Alison Hammond, who performed the American Smooth to 'Wuthering Heights'.
Choosing to save Alison and her dance partner Aljaz Scorjanec, Craig said: “I would like to save the couple that threw the kitchen sink at the routine – extra turns and all sorts of wafting. That is Alison and Aljaz.”
Darcey said: “The couple I would like to save is also because of its added flourishes in tonight’s performance. That is Alison and Aljaz.”
And Bruno agreed, saying: “I have to thank you both because you both turned up the fun factor on full time. You were both very funny but I have to go for the white tornado – Alison.”
The three votes meant that Alison and Aljaz were saved and will return to dance again next week, however Head Judge Len Goodman said he did not agree with his fellow judges.
“Had it been left to me, I thought they were both so much fun. They were both dancing the foxtrot so I went for the section which was the foxtrot and in that case, it would have been Scott that I would have saved,” Len said.
Reflecting back on the result, Scott said: “It’s something that I never thought I would do and I’m so glad that I said yes to it because it’s been the most fun I’ve ever had!”
And to his professional partner Joanne, he said: “We’ve become friends so it’s really sweet. It doesn’t really end for me here because I’ll still see her.”
And Joanne said: “He’s made my first experience of Strictly so special. He’s the best partner I could have asked for. We’ve had so much fun and I’m just so proud of him. He’s come from absolutely nowhere and I think loads of people at home can relate to him – he’s got two left feet – but coming out in front of everybody and just performing in front of millions of people each week, I’m so proud of him.”
Sunday’s results show featured a performance from Annie Lennox singing ‘I Put a Spell on You’ plus the professional dancers took to the floor to perform a spectacular barn dance.
