Neil Jones confirms he will be returning to Strictly tonight

Chris Ramsey stand-up

At 7.20pm on BBC One, the next elimination of Strictly 2019 beckons as our pro-celebrity pairs find out who's safely through to next week's seaside special and who's doomed to face the dreaded dance-off.

The bottom of the leaderboard was Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer with 26 points and Mike Bushell and Katya Jones with 25 points.

The comment sparked gasps from the audience, and Claudia attempted to backtrack by saying: 'I don't mean that'.

After both couples had danced a second time the judges delivered their verdicts - and it was a unanimous decision.

The presenter replied: 'I was shocked, I was adamant I was going to be in that dance off so thank you to everyone supporting, I was just gutted that I messed up really'.

They were in the dance off against Ru Paul's Drag Race star Michelle Visage, 51, and her partner Giovanni Pernice, 29. I didn't think I'd get this far so I have already booked a hotel in Blackpool, so I'm still coming along.

She said: 'First of all I'm really sorry about the rock joke, I was just trying to make you laugh but I felt so bad'. She'd make the greatest sporting coach ever, she makes you believe that anything is possible.

"But I am waiting to see how our relationship develops and if it's solid enough and a good base to bring children into it". She hasn't taken it easy on me.

Katya added: "Honestly I'm so proud of him and I think after even this dance which I think was your best dance you can leave with your head held up honestly; and in my eyes you're the victor".

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Karim Zeroual has broken down in tears over a routine littered with mistakes that left him in danger of not making it to next week's Blackpool Tower Ballroom show.
