Sara Davies is the latest celeb to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2021 after she and Aljaz Škorjanec ended up in the dance-off.

They went head to head against Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin, but sadly Sara lost out following the judges' vote.

The Dragon's Den star hoped to impress panel members Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Head Judge, Shirley Ballas, but were unfortunately sent home.

Both couples performed their routines from week seven again, in a bid to impress the judges, with Tilly and Nikita Kuzmin performing their Quickstep to I Won’t Dance by Damita Jo, with Sara and Aljaz performing their Argentine Tango to No More Tears (Enough Is Enough) by Donna Summer and Barbara Streisand.

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

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Tilly and Nikita, saying: "This is a really difficult decision because I gave both couples on Saturday night a 7.

"So very, very equal which made the decision even more difficult, but I think for me, the couple that stood out a little bit more and had the edge – Tilly and Nikita."

Motsi Mabuse also chose to save Tilly and Nikita, as she explained her decision: "Judging on this dance off, I have to say there were three factors that decided it for me; there were details, the nerves and a very strong competitor so I am saving Tilly and Nikita."

Next up was former Strictly professional dancer, Anton Du Beke, who also chose to save Tilly and Nikita.

Anton said of his choice: "Well, I think if you were ever choosing to do Strictly Come Dancing, this is the year to avoid.

"The standard is so high and either of these couples could have made it to the final any other year.

"Based on this dance off and this dance off alone, which was so strong, I’m just going to give the edge to Tilly and Nikita."

With three votes to Tilly and Nikita, it meant they had won the majority vote and would be leaving the competition regardless.

However, head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have also decided to save Tilly and Nikita.

Shirley said: "Yes, I would have saved Tilly and Nikita."

When asked by Tess about their time on the show, Sara said: "I had no idea any of this was in me.

"It’s been a life changing experience and one I’ve loved every second of."

Aljaz was then asked if he had any words for his partner and said: ‘I feel like from that day we met under the Angel of the North, I was so pleased to dance with you this season.

Honestly, I wouldn’t want to dance with anybody else.

You have been an absolute joy and a testament to hard work – not just on Strictly but with your business and you’re a beautiful mother.

Thank you for letting me spend so much time not just with you, but with the whole family, the Davies’s that are here tonight, all of the little ones at home.

I’ve been so welcomed up North, it made me feel like I’m back home in Slovenia because everyone is so lovely and friendly. I’m going to miss you so much.

I’m going to miss dancing with you. I’m going to miss everything about this show. Thank you everyone and thank you for supporting us."

Sara responded: "[Aljaz] is one in a million. I tell him every day and this wouldn’t have been the experience it was, if it wasn’t for him."

This evening's results show started with a stunning dance from all of the Strictly pros which was in honour of Remembrance Sunday.

There was also a very special music performance from James Blunt who performed his hit song, ‘Goodbye My Lover’.

The remaining couples will take to the dancefloor when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 20th November at 6:35pm, with the results show on Sunday 21st November at 7:15pm on BBC One.
