Vanessa Feltz has become the second casualty of the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom following the latest dance-off of the series.
The TV and radio presenter’s dancefloor career came to a premature end after she found herself up against designer Julien MacDonald in the bottom two.
And for the second week running the judges voted unanimously to save Julien and dance partner Janette Manrara after they had reprised their jive.
Afterwards Len Goodman told her: “Funnily enough I thought you danced a little better in that dance, however I would have gone for Julien and Janette.”
Vanessa – who performed a tango with dance partner James Jordan on Saturday night’s love-themed show – admitted she would “miss everything, especially James and dancing, the glamour, the sequins and fun of it all.”
She added: “Thank you very much indeed for having me, it’s been a lovely lovely time.”
James, meanwhile, paid tribute to Vanessa, calling her ‘a wonderful sweet woman’.
The 51-year-old scored a mixed response for her tango on Saturday night, with Len telling her: “The overall feeling was like a decaff coffee. It looks OK but lacks a bit of spice.”
Vanessa’s exit follows that of golfer Tony Jacklin, who became the first person to leave the competition last weekend.
Twelve other celebrities made it straight through to next weekend’s Strictly, including favourites Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Natalie Gumede and Ashley Taylor Dawson.
Dave Myers also sailed through to next week, despite finishing bottom of the heap with a paso doble which Craig Revel Horwood described as ‘dreadful’.
