Strictly Come Dancing 2022 Week 10 results: Who left the show, how to catch-up and week 11 theme

 Strictly Come Dancing has said goodbye to its ninth contestant after the week 10 dance off - here’s who left the show

The tenth week of Strictly Come Dancing brought some electric performances with the remaining couples taking to the ballroom. After a stunning night at Blackpool Tower ballroom, the celebrities went back to Elstree Studios and battled it out for a place in next week’s quarter finals.

Six out of the remaining seven couples competed in week 10 after Kim Marsh tested positive for COVID earlier this week. The actress and her partner Graziano di Prima have a free pass and automatically go into quarter-finals week.

Will Mellor and Nancy Xu led the leaderboard after nailing the tricky Charleston. This series’ standout Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal, and Molly Rainford & Carlos Gu were not far behind with scores of 37 and 36 respectively.

Last week’s shining stars Fleur East & Vito Coppola, failed to take advantage of their perfect score, including the series’ first ten from tough judge Craig. This time around, the couple grabbed fourth spot on the leaderboard.

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

So, who left Strictly Come Dancing in the Week ten dance off? Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s show.
