Holly Willoughby gutted over Kaye Adams Strictly Come Dancing exit

Kaye Adams was the first celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing 2022 after losing the dreaded dance-off to Bros star Matt Goss.

But today, 4 October 4, she had picked herself right back up and was back home in the Loose Women hot seat as ITV friends rushed to commiserate with her on air.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were the first to offer their sympathies over Kaye's early exit from the TV dance competition.

As the This Morning hosts went to a live link with the Loose Women panel to find out what was coming up, Phillip said: "Oh it's Kaye!" as the presenter appeared on their screen.

And Holly added: "I literally couldn't believe what I was seeing that you were in the bottom two. I'm so sorry, you were amazing."

Kaye, 59, replied and said: "Well thank you very much Holly but there you go, them's the breaks but you pick yourself up and you get on, it was great fun."

Holly could be heard adding: "Well you were incredible, we're very proud of you."

Kaye has admitted she was "gutted" after being axed.

In a video statement posted to social media on Monday, Kaye, 59, who appeared in a soft navy blue dressing gown said: "So I have finally surfaced after the craziest weekend imaginable."

She added: "Obviously I'm gutted at myself in that I panicked in that dance off. I just panicked. I've seen a few comments saying I looked like a rabbit in the headlights, and they're right."

Kaye continued: "So that is really annoying. Kai (Widdrington) tried so hard to say 'come on we can do this' and I just wasn't able to bring it. So I do regret that. But I do not regret signing up for Strictly despite my early exit."

She concluded: "I've learned so many things and met so many wonderful people that I will definitely come out of this stronger."


The Loose Women presenter found herself in the bottom two with Matt, 54, after the first public vote of the series, and it was a three-to-one decision from the judges.

Kaye was paired with Strictly pro Kai Widdrington, 27, whilst Matt is dancing with Nadiya Bychkova, 33.

After Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse voted for Kaye to go home, it was Anton Du Beke 's vote that sealed her fate, although head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have chosen to save Kaye and send Matt home.

Speaking about the judges' decisions, Kaye said: "It was the right result and I did make mistakes, and when it comes to that high-pressured situation that’s what happens."
