It’s been emotional! Tonight Deborah Meaden and Robin Windsor left the competition in a tense Results Show that saw the Dragon face an injured Patrick Robinson in the Dance Off. Conjuring up her fighting spirit, Deborah put in a gutsy performance as she and Robin took to the floor for her boardroom-inspired Viennese Waltz. With the Judges making a unanimous decision to save the Casualty star, Deborah saw her Strictly dreams shattered.
Talking to Tess a clearly emotional Deborah said “I can’t tell you. Strictly gave me a gift but the big gift that Strictly gave me was this guy. To teach me to dance, to find something I never even knew I could do and to make it the best. He’s wonderful. There’s going to be tears. No, I’m a dragon, there’ll be no tears.”
But there were tears later as Deborah’s fellow celebrities shared their dismay at her departure in our exclusive clip…
We say a tearful farewell as the Dragon returns to her den.
