Rugby star Kenny Logan has become the latest casualty of Strictly Come Dancing after failing to survive the judges vote.

Kenny – who had received praise for his foxtrot on Saturday’s show, but had a less than enthusiastic response for his rumba – lost out to Letitia Dean, who was also in the bottom two.

The judges unanimously voted to save Letitia and dance partner Darren Bennett. “I never thought it was going to be such a difficult choice,” admitted Arlene Phillips, “but I said spring in the step – and spring she did!”

Bruno Tonioli, meanwhile, said Letitia had “raised her game” in the competition.

Kenny said afterwards that his dance partner Ola Jordan had been “amazing. She’s taken me from absolute disaster to somebody who can dance,” he told Bruce and Tess.

And he added that he would now be able to go dancing with his wife Gabby Logan, who was voted off the show earlier in the series.

“I think she’s good enough now,” he joked.

Four couples now remain, after Kelly Brook left the show this week following the death of her father.
