After the departure of Jody Cundy and Jowita Przystal last week, the fourth celebrity to exit Strictly Come Dancing 2023 has been revealed.
After the votes of the four judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke, and Shirley Ballas – were combined with the audience votes, comedian Eddie Kadi and partner Karen Hauer found themselves dancing for a place in next week’s Halloween Week special against Love Island star Zara McDermott and Graziano Di Prima.
Eddie and Karen took to the floor first to perform their sassy Samba to “Calm Down” by Rema and Selena Gomez.
Zara and Graziano tried to impress the judges with their romantic American Smooth to “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” by LeAnn Rimes.
After both performances, all four judges unanimously decided to save Zara and Graziano, resulting in the eviction of Eddie and Karen. The duo became the fourth couple to leave the competition.
Meanwhile, Amanda Abbington was revealed to be skipping this Saturday’s live show due to medical reasons.
Layton Williams and his professional partner Nikita Kuzmin, on the other hand, managed a near-perfect score of 39 for their salsa to “Quimbara” by Johnny Pacheco and Celia Cruz to put the top of the Strictly leaderboard for the second week on the bounce.
Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Lauren Oakley scored 30 points from the judges. The duo danced a Quickstep to the song “The Lady Is a Tramp” by Frank Sinatra. Craig awarded 6, while all of the other judges gave the performance a solid 8.
