Who left Strictly Come Dancing in Week 7?

Despite Will Bayley having to pull out of the competition following an injury, another couple had to leave the contest.

Unfortunately, for Viscountess Emma Weymouth and Aljaz Skorjanec their time on the show came to an abrupt end in week seven when they were eliminated.

Naturally, Emma was devastated to have lost her place in the competition and admitted to being “heartbroken” with the outcome.

When asked about her time on the show, she said: “I’ve loved this more than anything I’ve done in my entire life.

“I’m going to be forever grateful to you (Aljaz) for working so hard, you’ve been so patient with me and teaching me everything.”

She continued: “Thank you, I want to be friends forever because you’re just amazing. I never wanted to let you down, I’m just heartbroken.”

However, Aljaz told her: “You never ever let me down from the first day of rehearsals when I walked in. I’m the only professional to have danced with an actual lady on Strictly Come Dancing.

“From day one in rehearsals, your dedication, to go from a non-performer, non-dancer, to achieve what you achieved on this show, I’m lucky it was me that taught you how to dance.”

He added: “Thank you so much for every single second in rehearsals. On that dancefloor you surprised me positively every single week. Thank you so much.”

Who was in the Strictly Come Dancing dance-off?

Emma and Aljaz went up against Mike Bushell and Katya Jones in the dance-off on Sunday, however, their efforts were not good enough to save them from being voted off the show.

All four judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonoili and Shirley Ballas – chose to save the BBC Breakfast presenter over Emma.

When the judges delivered their verdicts, Craig declared: “Well, for me the most challenging and the better dance, I thought on this particular performance for me, I’d like to save Mike & Katya.”

Bruno called Mike and Katya’s performance “more entertaining, richer, more powerful” when he chose to save them.
