Carol Kirkwood has said she is both sad and relieved to be leaving Strictly Come Dancing after she became the sixth contestant to be eliminated from the show.

The 53-year-old TV weather presenter and her professional partner, Pasha Kovalev, were left at the bottom of the leaderboard on Saturday night and lost out to EastEnders star Kellie Bright.

“I had the most amazing time on Strictly that I will never, ever forget, and dancing with the gorgeous Pasha Kovalev was a treat and a privilege, so I have very happy memories of it,” Carol said.

All four judges voted to save Bright and Clifton, including Craig Revel-Horwood.
