Host Lorraine Kelly asked him: “Can we talk Strictly? What happened?”

Joe replied: “Good question, what did happen? I think like the rest of the country right now, it’s a massive shock. I’m gutted for Dev and Dianne, it’s just a real shock.”

Lorraine said: “It is. Is she okay?” to which Joe revealed: “No, not really. I really don’t think it should have been them to go.

“They had so much potential and he was brilliant and an amazing student. It just doesn’t seem… it’s weird.”

Dev and Dianne scored 27 points out of 40 for their Cha Cha Cha by the judges during Saturday’s show.

During last night’s results show, judge Craig Revel Horwood said: “The couple that really shone in that particular dance-off and came to life was Emma and Aljaz.”

Bruno Tonioli said: “I have to save the couple that showed no mistake. Emma and Aljaz.”

Motsi Mabuse added: “Particularly on that dance-off, one couple looked more safe, they looked more on top of it. I’m going to save Emma and Aljaz.”

I really don’t think it should have been them to go.

Dev said on the show: “I’m absolutely gutted but learning how to dance and hanging out with Dianne and the pros and other celebrities [has been amazing].”

Dianne added: “Dev has been absolutely amazing, his work ethic is insane. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. He’s so talented and thank you very much.”
