Craig Revel Horwood voted to save Danny, while the others saved Graeme.

It comes at the end of a testing week for the pair, who have been the subject of controversial headlines.

Actor Danny, 58, and Amy, 27, have both spoken out after reports of a row between them.

The Sun claimed that Amy had told bosses she didn’t wish to continue with Strictly after Red Dwarf star Danny reduced her to tears.

“I am the star, not you!” he allegedly shouted during rehearsals.

The dancing duo later played down the row on It Takes Two with Amy asserting she never felt threatened or bullied by her partner.

Danny’s exit has stirred up a mixed bag of emotions on social media, with some viewers claiming he lost his place because of the negative press and the judges’ bias, while others felt it was his time.
