In the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing, Karen was partnered with comedian Chris Ramsey.

The pair latest until the semi-final, when the Geordie funnyman - upon discovering he had to perform again in the dance-off - joked as he predicted his own early exit.

"Shall we just call it an early night and go home?" he quipped.

Chris and Karen went first in the dance-off, performing their Rumba again, while CBBC star Karim Zeroual and his pro partner, Amy Dowden, followed with their American Smooth.

Everyone on the judging panel agreed that Karim should be saved - and viewers were sad to say goodbye to Chris.

Chris' wife, Rosie, was reportedly annoyed over the amount of weight he lost while competing in the hit BBC dance competition with Karen.

The stand-up comic joked that Rosie, with whom he hosts a podcast, was "angry" over the fact he managed to slim down without setting foot in a gym.
