Sara Davies is the latest celebrity dancer to leave Strictly.

The Dragon's Den star left the competition after competing in a dance-off against Tilly Ramsay.

Sara and her professional dance partner Aljaz Škorjanec performed an Argentine Tango, but received no votes form the judges.

Commenting on Sara's performance, judge Anton Du Beke said,

Sara Davies is the latest celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

‘Well, I think if you were ever choosing to do Strictly Come Dancing, this is the year to avoid. The standard is so high and either of these couples could have made it to the final any other year. Based on this dance off and this dance off alone, which was so strong, I’m just going to give the edge to Tilly and Nikita.’

Tilly Ramsay and her professional dance partner Nikita Kuzmin were saved thanks to their Quickstep to I Won’t Dance by Damita Jo.

Many fans have been left reeling after the decision to eliminate Sara, as the scores on Saturday night told a different story, with Sara being ranked 4th and Tilly lagging behind at 7th on the leader board.
