Strictly Come Dancing has said goodbye to its third contestant after the week four dance off - here’s who left the show

The fourth week of Strictly Come Dancing brought some electric performances, with Hamza Yassin dancing the judges and audience with his spicy salsa. Hamza alongside partner Jowita came top of the leaderboard for his strong performance.

As always though, praise from the judges and audience doesn’t always mean you are safe with the couples facing Sunday’s dreaded elimination show in which the couples with the fewest votes from the public have to compete in a dance-off.

Matt Goss became the third contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing as he faced Kym Marsh in the dreaded dance off. Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke chose to save Kym and Graziano, which meant they had won the majority vote and would be staying in the competition regardless.

Head Judge Shirley Ballas also said she would have decided to save Kym and Graziano. Shirley said, “I also felt that both couples were 100% committed, spot on performances today. But the couple with a little bit more technical skill was Kym and Graziano and that’s who I’d save.”

Matt said: “It’s an extraordinary experience, I have been in America for 25 years. Thank you judges for your candour; you’ve helped me in many ways. “My posture – Anton, I am more aware of it. This lovely lady [Nadiya] beside me, a world champion with all the patience. I am very honoured to have danced with you, and everyone who is still in, I love you guys, go smash it guys.”

Nadiya was then asked if she had any words for her partner, before saying: “First I’m so grateful that I got to teach and dance with a music icon. But, more important than this, I got the privilege to get to know Matt, for who you really are. Not many people know you and you’re a beautiful soul, very kind human and a real gentleman.”
