Sadly actress Fiona Fullerton exited Strictly Come Dancing after our Blackpool extravaganza in the Tower Ballroom. Finding herself in the bottom two after an aviation-themed American smooth that saw Anton pilot her journey to Blackpool.
Up against Mark in the Dance Off, Fiona’s final performance split the Judges, with Craig choosing to save her and partner Anton, while Bruno and Darcey chose Mark. It was then up to Head Judge Len to make the final decision and he chose to save Mark and Iveta.
Reflecting back on her time on the show, Fiona said “It’s been the most amazing trip. I can’t thank you enough, or the producers at the BBC, for asking me to take part in this show. It’s like being a guest at the best party in the world. It’s been fantastic, thank you. Anton has been unbelievably patient I can’t tell you. I honestly have a memory like a colander. He’s been utterly brilliant. It’s just lovely, thank you darling.”
