'Strictly Come Dancing: Judy Murray Voted Off After Losing Out To Sunetra Sarker In the Dance-Off


After weeks of low scores from four very unimpressed judges, Judy Murray finally bowed out of 'Strictly Come Dancing' on Sunday night.

The 55-year-old failed to dazzle viewers with her Viennese Waltz to 'Let's Go Fly A Kite' from Mary Poppins at Blackpool's Tower Ballroom, and ended up in the bottom two with 'Casualty' star Sunetra Sarker.

Before taking to the floor with her partner Anton du Beke for the dance-off, Judy told host Tess Daley that she was 'delighted' to still be in the competition.

But delighted the judges definitely were not, with Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood all voting to save Sunetra after she performed the Samba to Scissor Sisters 'I Don't Feel Like Dancing'.

After being voted off, Judy said: "We got lucky. Anton has been lovely, he’s made my Strictly experience very special."

To which Anton went on to say: "She’s such a great person. The fun that we had is purely because of her humour. She’s been such a sport… I have had the best time ever."

The results show featured a special performance from Shirley Bassey who sang her classic hit 'Goldfinger' and former 'Strictly' champ Harry Judd performed with his McBusted bandmates.

'Strictly' drew in an average of 10.28million tuning in on Saturday - maintaining its huge lead over ITV rival 'The X Factor', which drew 7.5million viewers.
