With the Strictly Final tantalizingly close, sadly Patrick Robinson failed to make the cut becoming the last casualty of the dreaded Dance Off in 2013. In a semi-final that saw double the dance floor magic with two routines from each couple, Patrick faced fellow actor Natalie Gumede for a chance to make it to the all-important final. With Natalie scoring the second perfect score of the series, the odds were stacked against Patrick who bowed out of the competition with typical grace.

Reflecting on his time on the show he said “I’ve had an incredible journey, an incredible time, what an experience. Anya Garnis is just an incredible dancer, an incredible choreographer.” My highlight really may be a surprise, but being in the training room was the place I had the most fun and the most hard work, so being here was just the icing on the cake.
