Singer and TV star Peter Andre has become the ninth celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

Andre and his partner Janette Manrara faced EastEnders actress Kellie Bright and her partner Kevin Clifton in the dance-off.

Talking to host Tess Daly about his time on the show, Andre said "it's been nothing but joy", adding: "Like I said before, there is no shame in leaving, we are so grateful. I love everybody. Thank you."

Next weekend will see six couples competing in the quarter finals in a musicals-themed week.
