Caroline Quentin and Johannes Radebe found themselves in the bottom two on Strictly Come Dancing after failing to impress the viewers and the judges with their Cha Cha Cha. After fighting for their place in the competition, the couple were eliminated as Anton Du Beke pointed out some “mistakes” Caroline had made in the routine. All three judges chose to save Maisie Smith and Gorka Marquez.

Caroline and Johannes’ cheeky Cha Cha Cha was well received by the judges. 

The Strictly pro played a fireman attempting to escape the clutches of Caroline while he rescued her cat.

All three judges praised their quirky take on the Cha Cha Cha but their score of 24 failed to keep them from the bottom two of the leaderboard. 

Clara Amfo and Aljaz Skorjanec received six marks less than Caroline but the public vote saved them from the dance-off.

Although Maisie and Gorka received the second-highest score of the night, they were forced to dance again for their place in the competition. 

After both couples had danced again, Craig Revel Horwood, Anton and Shirley Ballas revealed who they wanted to save. 

Craig explained: “I absolutely love both couples, but for me, one couple was outstanding and danced as though their lives depended on it and that couple I would like to save, Maisie and Gorka.” 

“Well, I thought both couples danced beautifully,” Anton continued.  

“I think they are beautiful couples who danced fabulous routines.

“One couple was a bit cleaner than the other couple, there were a couple of mistakes in there.  

“So the couple I would like to save is Maisie and Gorka.”

Head judge Shirley revealed she would have also chosen to save Maisie and Gorka.

Tess comforted Caroline and asked if she had fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a dancer.

Caroline replied: “Yeah in a way slightly more than that because I have had the honour and privilege of working with some of the greatest dancers this country has ever known I mean I believe it, I think they are absolutely fantastic.  

“But of course my greatest gift coming on this show is this man.”

Johannes added: “Oh my gosh, what a woman, thank you, thank you again, thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t know what to say, because it was a beautiful one, I had a beautiful journey with you, thank you my darling, thank you.”

On Saturday, Caroline shocked the judges with her cheeky routine as she licked her partner mid-routine.

Craig Revel Horwood quipped: “I think Johannes is the one that needs rescuing! We really could have done without your tongue.

“I felt like I was watching an episode of Are You Being Served? 

“I’m sure you based your character on that…but I loved it, I absolutely loved it.”
