Who went out of Strictly Come Dancing 2020 last night?

STRICTLY has seen another celebrity leave the competition.

Week seven saw a seventh star waltz off the famous dancefloor.

Who left Strictly Come Dancing last night?

JJ Chalmers became the latest celebrity to leave the show after his rendition of the Charleston to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from the musical of the same name.

Chalmers, 33, and his partner Amy Dowden found themselves in a dance off against Jamie Laing and his partner Karen Hauer, but unfortunately, the Invictus Games medallist and broadcaster were the ones to face the chop.

Speaking about his time on the show, Chalmers told host Tess Daly: "I’m unbelievably proud.

“I never thought I would make it this far, I've gotten half decent maybe at something which I had no clue about to begin with and I've enjoyed every second of it, it has just been an absolute blast.

“It's just a privilege to be in this long. I mean this competition is insane! To be counted among that cast at this stage in particular means the world to me.

Who was in the bottom two?

On last night's show, the couple found themselves in the dance off against Jamie Laing and his partner, Karen Hauer.

After both couples had danced a second time the judges delivered their verdicts:

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Jamie and Karen, saying: "Well I think both couples danced to the best of their abilities and both couples upped their game considerably.

“But for me the best couple on the night that I would like to go through to semi-finals – Jamie and Karen."

Motsi Mabuse opted for JJ and Amy, saying: "I actually think we saw two different dancing styles which both have their own qualities; both energetic, both so great at this dance off – very difficult decision.

“I saw a little hiccup with one dance, so I'm saving JJ and Amy."

Finally, Head Judge Shirley Ballas had to make the call, and chose to save Jamie and Karen.

She said: "Both couples lifted their game, I adored both performances very very much, and both couples made small mistakes, both couples.

“But on a more powerful and through difficulty of choreography and through sheer determination, I'm going to save Jamie."
