Strictly Come Dancing judges eject Robert Rinder

By PA Reporter

Judge Rinder has shuffled out of Strictly Come Dancing after losing a dance-off with sports presenter rival Ore Oduba.

But the departing TV star said it was "a joy" to take part in the show and urged everyone to try out the toe-tapping pastime.

He became the 11th contestant to leave the show alongside his professional partner Oksana Platero, with the judges voting unanimously to save Oduba and his partner Joanne Clifton.

Rinder and Platero did an energetic samba to Oh! What A Night! from Jersey Boys, while Oduba and Clifton did their foxtrot to Pure Imagination from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

The remaining four couples, including celebrity dancers Claudia Fragapane, Danny Mac, Louise Redknapp and Oduba, will be back on Saturday for the semi-final, ahead of the next results show on Sunday night.
