Fern Britton leaves Strictly

Online team

Fern Britton has become the fifth contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing. Despite, sadly in a week where Fern had finally found her dancing feet, scoring her highest score in the series so far and impressing the judges with a sizzling salsa, our Great Britton found herself facing Kimberley Walsh in the dance off.

After the judges unanimously voted to keep Kimberley in the competition, a clearly emotional Fern reflected on her time and said…

”This is the best party on the television, it’s the best programme in the world, and I’m thrilled to have been part of it. My ticket on the train has run out. Everyone else – good luck, good luck, good luck! It’s the best party. You’ve got dancing in the drawing room, you’ve got snogging upstairs, you’ve got throwing up in the garden. It’s been fantastic. You really do live that – the throwing up mostly! Artem, I’ve loved it. I wouldn’t have swapped you for anything. There have been highs and lows, we’ve got to know each other pretty well, and I do adore you…"
