Strictly Come Dancing: Danny John-Jules thanks Amy Dowden after exit


Both couples then performed their routines again, with Graeme and Oti doing their Salsa to Follow The Leader by Soca Boys whilst Danny and Amy performed their Samba to Feels Like Home by Sigala.

Danny previously implied in a Twitter post that the negative stories being written about him were rooted in racism, writing: "I take great pride being hunted down by Khaki Wearing, Doberman holding, Tobacco chewing, Cross eyed, Cousin producing, Banjo playing, Chair rocking, Night riding, Sheet wearing, Pointy hatted, illiterate, hacks [whose] truth is driven by hate".

Talking more about her supposed fallout with John-Jules, she told OK!: "We had a minor disagreement over our footwork and I stepped out of the studio for half an hour, but came back and we got on with training as normal".

The Red Dwarf star and the pro dancer were eliminated from the programme on Sunday night after losing out in a dance-off against Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse, and he has praised Amy for "inspiring" him throughout the series and teaching him numerous moves.

The 42-year-old, writing in Hello magazine, says: 'It's an incredible show to be a part of with a big crowd, a lot of fuss and it's also a chance for a jolly up north.

In a now deleted tweet, Jordan wrote that Danny's mother looked "miserable" at a Strictly taping, which the actor and his wife Petula Langlais both replied to, with the former stating his mother had Alzheimer's.

This makes Danny the seventh celebrity to leave the show.

"Just out of curiosity I tried them on last week and I had an inch to spare in them". I told myself I'm not going to cry tonight.

"And there's a bit that she put in earlier in the week saying "I'm putting this in".

"I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the knowledge I have taken away with me, curtesy of your good self".

She tweeted: "You should be so proud of the performances you produced!"

Danny then said: 'My children love her they are probably going to be watching this now really sad. I know and believe he belongs on this stage.

A third said: "Not Danny! For some reason, some don't want me to be successful on Strictly", he added.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One.
