Thirteen celebrities had danced as the contest continued in week four – but one was going to be unlucky… And, as it turned out, there was a shock in store.
At the end of the Saturday-night show, antiques expert Tim Wonnacott looked vulnerable, scoring just 19/40 for his Paso Doble with pro dancer Natalie Lowe, which Craig Revel Horwood described as “lame and lacklustre”.
And, indeed, Tim was in the dance-off.
But in a shock result, reality TV star Mark Wright found himself dancing against Tim to stay in the contest. Mark had scored 29/40 for his quickstep and, Bruno Tonioli said, he “put a lot of flourish into it”.
Still, all Mark had to do was repeat his first performance and he would be safe… And he did.
The judges were unanimous, it was time for Tim to go.
“I’m fitter and a better person than I was a month ago,” Tim said. “It has been a treat.”
