Jerry Hall became the second celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing after she and partner Anton du Beke lost the dance-off with Michael Vaughan and Natalie Lowe by 3 votes to 1 in Hollywood week.
Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Len Goodman voted for keep Michael and Natalie in the competition with Bruno Tonioli voting for Jerry and Anton so it was time for the “final dance” for Jerry and Anton. The two celebrities were evenly matched in the dance off with Michael Vaughan probably just shading it.
Over the series is has become clear that Jerry Hall was not putting the work in to improve and this maybe swayed the judges (her last 3 judges scores were 18-18-18).
Michael Vaughan is going to have to work even harder to remain in the competition much longer, especially as he is not attracting the viewer telephone vote.
It was relief for Sid Owen, as he avoided the dance off despite having the lowest score of the night. He looked very upset after the judges gave his dance a score of 17; he is the only celebrity to get a lower score each week having opened the series with a 26 and followed that with a 22! Ola Jordan will quickly have to figure out why they are going backwards rather than forward in time for next week’s Halloween themed show.
