Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meaden was the fourth celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.



She was given the boot by the judges after going head-to-head with Casualty’s Patrick Robinson in the dance-off.



Deborah and her partner Robin Windsor performed their Viennese Waltz to It’s a Man’s World by James Brown, while Patrick and his partner Anya Garnis performed their Salsa to Wings by Little Mix. But in the end, judges Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood all chose to save Patrick.



Speaking after her elimination was confirmed, Deborah praised the efforts of her partner, Robin.



“Strictly gave me a gift but the big gift that Strictly gave me was this guy,” she said. “To teach me to dance, to find something I never even knew I could do and to make it the best. He’s wonderful. There’s going to be tears. No, I’m a dragon, there’ll be no tears.”



Eleven couples now remain in the competition.
