Patsy Kensit given Strictly boot

Patsy Kensit has become the latest celebrity to be booted from the Strictly dance floor, following an Argentine tango that fell flat.

The actress' performance received a mixed review from the judging panel, with Bruno Tonioli complaining that it "lacked spunk".

And the viewing public seemed to agree. After all the votes were in, the former Holby City star found herself in last place.

Patsy took her exit from Strictly Come Dancing in good spirits.

"You know what, I've had the most incredible time," she said, adding: "Firstly I have to thank all those who voted because it's been nine weeks, which was incredible.

"It's been the most beautiful experience."

Her departure means that the Ann Widdecombe survived yet again, despite another barrage of criticism from the judges.

She attempted to impress them with a Titanic-themed rumba.

But after cutting a rug to Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, her performance was panned.

"The iceberg showed more passion," judge Craig Revel Horwood told the former MP.
