Ainsley Harriott Sadly Leaves Strictly Come Dancing…

Ainsley Harriott became the fourth contestant to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing 2015 after he lost out to Jamelia in week 5 dance off.

Ainsley and his partner Natalie Lowe were in the bottom two with singer Jamelia and her professional partner Tristan MacManus after the viewers’ votes were counted.

Both couples took to the floor to repeat their Saturday night’s dances for the dance off. Ainsley in pink hat and shirt performed the Jive to Shake, Rattle and Roll by Bill Haley and the Comets and Jamelia, also in pink, did the Foxtrot to Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion.

But it was a clean sweep of votes for Jamelia and Tristan when the judges had to decide who to save.

Ainsley said he was “disappointed” to end his time on the show but had no regrets. “I gave it my best. I really did,” he said. “I hope it goes down that I entertained people and I showed that it’s such a lovely skill to acquire. I would have liked to have done a little bit more, especially for Natalie because she’s such a lovely person.”

“It was a happy experience. Of course I’m disappointed, I’d like to have gone on for a few more weeks at least, but that’s Strictly for you. You can never tell what’s going to happen and that’s what makes it the show it is.”
