‘Strictly Come Dancing': Ainsley Harriott Leaves The Competition, As Jamelia Remains In The Running

Ainsley Harriott has become the latest celebrity to leave ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, after ending up in the bottom two with Jamelia.

Despite showing signs of improvement during the competition, Ainsley failed to impress and all four judges opted to save Jamelia and her pro partner Tristan MacManus.

Jamelia narrowly avoided leaving the show

Speaking after both couples had performed their dances again, Craig Revel-Horwood stated: “The couple I think that danced the best on the night is Jamelia and Tristan.”

“I so enjoyed both performances and this is incredibly difficult but the couple I would like to save is Jamelia and Tristan,” added Darcey Bussell, before Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman agreed.

Ainsley had only positive things to say about his time in the competition, and told Tess Daly: “It’s been absolutely amazing. I’m sad that it can’t continue but I made a couple of mistakes and the judges are spot on, they know exactly what they are talking about. I’m sad for you Natalie I really am.

“I wanted to push on a little bit more but it wasn’t meant to be.”

Next week’s Halloween ‘Strictly’ will be a spooky special, airing at the usual time of 6.35pm.
