Strictly Come Dancing is in full swing now and sadly that meant one contestant had to leave the competition. It was the turn of James Cracknell who was voted to leave the BBC show first with his professional partner Luba Mushtuk.
They went up against former football star David James in the dance off before heading to the judges’ votes.
Sadly, James and Luba were unanimously voted to leave the competition.
Tess Daly turned to commiserate James, asking him about his time on Strictly.
The former rowing star explained: “[I’ve] definitely enjoyed the last three days of the last week as I got to grips with the steps and started to enjoy it.
Bruno Tonioli opted to save David as well, adding: “I have to save the couple that really showed to me how you apply and you work on the comments of the judges and deliver a performance that is almost night and day from one day to the other.”
Shirley Ballas’ vote wasn’t needed in this instance as it was clear who the majority were saving, but the head judge would have agreed with her colleagues.
Elsewhere in the thrilling results show, Lewis Capaldi performed his chart-topping hit, Someone You Loved.
What’s more, the professional dancers performed a stunning flamenco-inspired routine which was set on the rooftops of Barcelona.
Last night on the live Strictly Come Dancing, James was praised for his efforts considering the details of his previous brain injury.
In 2010, James was involved in a cycling incident which left him with a brain injury.
He explained last night how it affects the way he processes information, but he has never once let it hold him back – and viewers were loving his bravery and courage to speak so candidly.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One next Saturday at 7.10pm.
