Actor Davood Ghadami has bid farewell to Strictly Come Dancing following the latest dance-off.

The EastEnders star, 35, and professional partner Nadiya Bychkova, 28, left the series after their Argentine Tango didn't wow enough viewers.

The pair went up against Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez - their second week in a row in the dance-off.

Accepting his fate, Ghadami said: "There have been so many highlights I've had the best time and this is why I'm smiling because I never thought I'd get this far. I've never done anything like this before.

"I'm going to spend the next two weeks dancing with my two beautiful girls at home."

There are now just five couples left in the competition with Debbie McGee the bookies favourite to take home the glitter ball trophy.
