The latest celebrity has hung up their dancing shoes and been voted off Strictly Come Dancing.

Viscountess Emma Weymouth was the sixth celebrity to be sent home from this year's BBC dancing competition.

Viscountess Emma Weymouth and her partner Aljaž Škorjanec, scored just 26 out of 40 for their Samba to I Don't Care by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, but had to give the routine another whirl around the dancefloor.

Meanwhile, Mike Bushell and his partner Katya Jones had to kick up their heels again for their Charleston to Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines by the Ron Goodwin Orchestra.

It was a full house sweep for the judges who unanimously voted to save Mike and Katya.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "Well, for me the most challenging and the better dance, I thought on this particular performance for me, I'd like to save Mike and Katya."

Motsi Mabuse said: "I'm going to choose a couple which I think everything they did was much clearer to read, much easier to follow and more prepared. I'm going to go with Mike and Katya."

Bruno Tonioli said: "Purely based on tonight's performance, more entertaining, richer, more powerful and something extraordinary happened, the celebrity actually covered for the professional's mistake; Mike and Katya."

Shirley Ballas revealed if she had to cast her vote, she would have also saved Mike and Katya.

"I've loved this more than anything I've done in my entire life.

"I'm going to be forever grateful to you [Aljaž] for working so hard, you've been so patient with me and teaching me everything. Thank you, I want to be friends forever because you're just amazing. I never wanted to let you down, I'm just heartbroken."

Her partner Aljaž added: "You never ever let me down from the first day of rehearsals when I walked in.

"I'm the only professional to have danced with an actual lady on Strictly Come Dancing. From day one in rehearsals, your dedication, to go from a non-performer, non-dancer, to achieve what you achieved on this show, I'm lucky it was me that taught you how to dance.

"Thank you so much for every single second in rehearsals. On that dancefloor, you surprised me positively every single week. Thank you so much."

At the top of the Strictly leaderboard this weekend is Karim Zeroual and his partner Amy Dowden, who danced the Quickstep to Mr Pinstripe Suit by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
