Strictly’s Caroline Quentin voted off after Maisie Smith bottom two battle

Caroline Quentin became the fourth celebrity to be voted off of Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday night.

The 60-year-old actress and her professional partner Johannes Radebe found themselves in the dance off against EastEnders star Maisie Smith and her partner Gorka Márquez.

After both couples danced for a second time the judges delivered their verdicts, with all three of them choosing to save 19-year-old actress Maisie.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "I absolutely love both couples, but for me one couple was outstanding and danced as though their lives depended on it and that couple I would like to save, Maisie and Gorka."

Guest judge Anton du Beke added: "Well I thought both couples danced beautifully. I think they are beautiful couples, danced fabulous routines.

"One couple was a bit cleaner than the other couple, there was a couple of mistakes in there. So the couple I would like to save are Maisie and Gorka."

Head judge Shirley Ballas then confirmed she would have also chosen to save Maisie and Gorka as well.

When asked by Strictly host Tess Daly if she has fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a dancer on the show Caroline said: "Yeah in a way slightly more than that because I have had the honour and privilege of working with some of the greatest dancers this country has ever known.

"I mean I really believe it, I think they are absolutely fantastic. But of course my greatest gift coming on this show is this man."

When asked if he had any words for Caroline, Johannes replied: "Oh my gosh, what a woman, thank you, thank you again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

"I don’t know what to say, because it was a beautiful one, I had a beautiful journey with you, thank you my darling, thank you."

The remaining couples will take to the dance floor next week, when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 28th November at 7.15pm.
