Ben Cohen leaves Strictly

Online team

Ben Cohen became the eighth celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing. After playing to his strengths, performing a strong man-inspired Charleston on Saturday night’s show, Ben failed to impress the Judges and found himself at the bottom of the Leaderboard. Facing Mark Benton in the Dance Off, after both couples had danced a second time, the Judges delivered their verdicts with Craig saving Mark and Iveta, Darcey saving Ben and Kristina and Bruno choosing to save Mark and Iveta. It was then down to Len as Head Judge to cast the final decision and he chose to save Mark and Iveta.

Looking back at his time on the show, Ben said: “It’s been a great experience and Kristina has been great. When would I get to dress like this every day, wear all the lycra and maybe not a top! The support has been amazing and I’ve had a great time but now I can dance at my kid’s parties. Kristina has been great, I have thrown her around a little bit, I’ve thrown her into walls, dropped her a few times and she has been great – thanks ever so much for putting up with me!”

See Ben's fellow celebrities share their thoughts on Ben's departure and then share your goodbye to Ben and Kristina...
