Russll Grant strictly

Russell Grant becoming the latest star to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing this series.

The 60-year-old had received just 24 points out of 40 for his routine last night, and he failed to secure enough votes to remain in the competition.

Russell was joined in the bottom two with Holly Valance after Saturday’s Wembley Arena special, which saw a huge audience of more than 12 million viewers tune in.

Speaking after his exit, Russell said: “Every show I’ve done has been a highlight, it’s been fantastic. The public have been great, the audiences have been great. I’ve learnt from the judges, I’ve listened to the judges… but most of all I’ve had the most fantastic partner in Flavia Cacace.”

Russell’s professional partner Flavia added: “I completely agree with everyone out there who absolutely loves you because you are a true inspiration. It has been an absolute pleasure and joy partnering you.”
