After the two couples fought for a place to stay in the competition, it was time for the judges to make their decision. Revel Horwood and Phillips voted to keep Snowdon and Cole in the competition. Toniolli voted to keep Lunghi and Jordan in the competition. As it was a tie Len Goodman had to cast the deciding vote and he did not sound very happy and he said ‘I fell like I am chucking someone out of the competition’. He voted to keep Snowdon and Cole in the show.
When it was time for Lunghi and Jordon to go, Jordon said ‘I think people should know that this is a dancing competition and vote for the dance. Otherwise you might see more people being upset’.
Political broadcaster and journalist, John Sergeant still remains in the competition even after scoring the lowest score in most of the weeks of this competition. Public support has kept him in the competition and he is through to Week 10.
