Team PatAnya are Casualty star Patrick Robinson and dance partner Anya Garnis. A formidable pairing, at the age of 49, Patrick has already declared that he wants to be the oldest winner of SCD, and from his early performances he may just stand a chance.

Week One saw the couple perform an energetic Jive to ‘Runaway Baby’, and a dramatic Tango to Michael Jackson’s  ‘Beat It’ followed in week Two, which had Bruno describing it as... ‘Strong and gritty and very grounded, you went for it’’.

They suffered a slight set back in Week Five after Patrick injured his hand causing them to make last minute changes to their Salsa but they were soon back on track and scored a perfect 10 from Darcey in Week Seven for a stunning American Smooth that oozed style and sophistication.

Patrick and Anya spend plenty of time laughing during their training, but despite her diminutive stature Anya can be tough on Patrick when she needs to be.

    Gutted you have gone but you have done so with immense dignity and gentlemanly panache. What a genuinely lovely man you are and a fan-bloomin-tastic dancer! I hope you are now at least able to have a bit of a rest as your schedule must have been insane. Happy Christmas Patanya!

    Watched Patrick on ITT tonight. Felt really sorry that he's the one to have gone on Saturday, but a lot will agree with him that being up against Natalie, the outcome was inevitable. I wonder how many Patrick fans (with justification) are the Natalie haters and could now be saying 'Be careful what you wish for'. He should have been up against Susannah and he'd still be in the Final now.

    It's so sad we are not going to get a chance to see you dancing in the final, you so deserved to be there. But I'm certain after being on Strictly that the future will hold many more exciting projects for you in the future. Well done Patrick and Anya you made a brilliant team!

    It should have been Susana going back home... Not you Patrick.... I am guttered.... You to me were the BEST all round dancer. Your latins were superb and that hip movement is to die for. And you were sooooo smooth and elegant in your Ballroom numbers... I mean, look at your dance tonight...... Every woman watching that would have wanted to be your partner tonight... You were so elegant, sophisticated, a dream...... I cried when they voted you out... I AM SOOOOO SORRY......
