Strictly Sympathy Voting

Makes you wonder just how bad you have to be for viewers to vote you off BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing… After coming bottom of the class for two weeks in a row and being lambasted by the judges, GMTV’s Kate Garraway was given another stay of execution by a forgiving public.

This time it was a tearful Penny Lancaster who was given the boot – to the amazement of the judges. The rules of the contest were changed this time around to give the panel more of a say, but that hasn’t stopped some of the more talented contestants from getting the public axe. Host Bruce Forsyth’s recent reminder to viewers that “this is a dance contest!” has clearly fallen on deaf ears. Check out Kate and Anton's latest moves in our image gallery.
