He may have been flying high at Wembley, but it wasn’t enough to keep Russell Grant dancing for another week as tonight he became the latest star to leave Strictly Come Dancing.
This week’s Strictly Come Dancing was quite possibly the best. It was most certainly a defining moment in its history this weekend with the biggest ever show broadcast live from London’s iconic Wembley Arena in aid of Children in Need.
Sir Bruce Forsyth & Tess Daly were masters of ceremony, in what proved to be the grandest and most spectacular Strictly to date.
Our remaining eight couples waltzed their way across the biggest dancefloor in the history of Strictly Come Dancing, in front of a live audience in the arena of over 6,000 people – as well as the millions more at home – in the ultimate glitterball extravaganza. As ever, our fearsome foursome – Len Goodman, Alesha Dixon, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood – were on hand to critique each routine and award a score out of 10.
On Sunday night’s result show, Tess was joined by Claudia Winkleman to reveal the results. It was revealed that Russell Grant & Flavia Cacace and one time favourite to win Holly Valance & Artem Chigvintstev had both landed in the bottom two, and subsequently revealed that Russell had received the lowest score and would be the next to leave the competition.
Russell & Flavia had danced a Jive to Reach For The Stars in Saturday’s show, with a spectacular entrance, which saw Russell fired from a cannon on to the dancefloor.
