Strictly Come Dancing returned on Saturday, October 23, on BBC One where the remaining celebrities were given another chance to wow the judges and audience at home alike. Most of the contestants seemed to have upped their games during week five but sadly someone had to go. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the latest couple to make their exit.

Who left Strictly Come Dancing last night?

The 10 competing couples gave it their all in an attempt to keep out of the dreaded dance-off.

Comedian Judi Love and partner Graziano Di Prima weren’t able to perform as she had a positive Covid-19 test but will be back on Strictly next week.

This left the rest of the contestants fighting it out to keep their place in the competition.

But after the public had their say, two couples had to perform their Saturday night routines once again.

Former England rugby player Ugo Monye and Oti Mabuse, and CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu were in the dance-off.

Ugo and Oti relived their Rumba to Leave The Door Open by Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak and Silk Sonic, while Rhys and Nancy came back swinging with their American Smooth to I’ve Got The World On A String by Michael Bublé.

The couples did everything they could but once the music stopped playing, it was up to the judges to make their final decision.

Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and head judge Shirley Ballas were all in agreement.

The judges unanimously voted in favour of keeping Rhys and Nancy in the competition.

Therefore, Ugo and two-time champion Oti was eliminated in week five of Strictly Come Dancing.

Before casting his vote, Anton commented: “Well, it so often turns out that the dance-off seems to instil something in the couples and they’ve produced their best performances.

“So, on that performance alone, I’m going to give it to Rhys and Nancy.”

Ugo then went on to explain how much he has enjoyed his time on the show.

He said: “I’ve loved it. It’s an absolute privilege to be on this show and all I’ve wanted to do every week is just get a little bit better and I’ve done that.

“There’s lots of people that I would love to say thank you to.

“Oti, firstly, just for putting up with me. She said she wanted a challenge and she got one!

“To everyone else that’s in the competition, it’s truly incredible and I wish you all the very best of luck.

“To the judges – Craig – I think it’s really important to say that if you’re willing to accept the positive comments, you have to accept the criticism as well so thank you for all of your comments.”

Oti added she was “grateful” to Ugo for giving it his all, especially after missing last week due to a back injury.

The remaining 10 contestants will return next weekend for one of Strictly’s highlights: Halloween Week.

But who is going to make you scream with delight and who is going to just make you scream?

Strictly Come Dancing will return on Saturday, October 30, at 7.10pm on BBC One.
