Comedienne Susan Calman is the latest star to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The Scottish funnywoman and professional partner Kevin Clifton left following the dance-off on Sunday night's results show.

Their exit came after viewers were shocked to see favourite to win, Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez also in the bottom two.

However, judges voted unanimously to save Alexandra and Gorka after their rumba was deemed better than Susan and Kevin's American Smooth.

Susan said: "I have loved every minute of it.

"Everyone from wardrobe, make-up, the runners, Tess and lovely Claudia, Zoe on It Takes Two, the beautiful judges who have brought such light into my life every single week, everyone involved in the show, the audience, everyone who voted for us, we got far further than we thought we would.

"To my friends and my family and my lovely wife who's here every single week supporting me. Most of all, I've made a friend for life and Kevin may not have won the Glitterball this year but he's won Strictly for me."
