High scorers Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu danced their way to the top in Week 2 and impressed judges with a Quickstep to Love on Top by Beyonce which landed them 34 points - making them last week’s top scorers.

However, Kaye Adams and her pro partner Kai Widdrington found themselves in the dance-off against Matt Goss and his pro partner Nadiya Bychkova after the first week of live voting.

Strictly Come Dancing Week 3 takes place on Saturday

In a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition, the couples performed their dances again with Kaye and Kai performing their Charleston to Music! Music! Music! by Dorothy Provine. And Matt and Nadiya performed their Samba to Night Fever by the Bee Gees.

Following the dance-off, the judges decided to send Kaye Adams and her pro partner Kai Widdrington home in the first week of eliminations - with all other contestants looking ahead to Week 3 - Movie Week!
