With three votes to Judi and Graziano, it meant they had won the majority vote and Greg and Karen would be leaving the competition regardless, however Head Judge Shirley Ballas said she would have decided to save Greg and Karen.
“Well I counted all the mistakes and from what I saw I would have saved Greg and Karen,” Shirley said.
When asked by host Tess Daly about his time on the show, Greg said: “I have had an amazing time, I feel unbelievably privileged and thank you all for having me.”
Karen was then asked if she had any words for her partner and said: “It has been a blast. Thank you for the amazing lunches, thanks for the quality of work, and for being an amazing student. I have enjoyed our moments in the classroom, and just having fun with you, I’ve really enjoyed it.’
The remaining eleven couples will take to the dance floor next Saturday when Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One.
