Michelle Visage has admitted she was utterly stunned by Catherine Tyldesley's shock Strictly Come Dancing elimination.
The 51-year-old Drag Race star was shocked to see close pals Catherine and dance pro Johannes Radebe leave the series at the Halloween special stage - and has called on viewers to vote for their faves to avoid further surprises.
She said: "My jaw was on the ground... it just shows you, you have to vote for your favourite people. We rely on that.
"Cath and Johannes are two of my closest friends in this competition. So it's sad to see them go, and I love them so much. Cath is a sweetheart and she is just on top of the world that she made it to Halloween week."
Former Corrie star Catherine and Johannes failed to win over the voting public and faced sports presenter Mike Bushell and his partner Katya Jones in the dreaded dance off - leading to an emotional farewell.
The fallout from the controversial booting off saw some viewers speculate judge Motsi Mabuse was unimpressed with the manner of the departure.

And bother Mike, 53, and his wife have been forced to hit back at trolls who have aimed slights at him on social media, include telling him 'to retire'.
But the weekend also saw Michelle receive her first 10 out of 10 of the series alongside Giovanni Pernice - and she feels it was an "amazing high".
Speaking on Lorraine, she said: "It was a foxtrot … he [Giovanni] is basically driving me like a car, because you see how far back my posture is and my neck … you can’t see where you are going. So much trust is involved.
"It was an amazing high. It was, 'Oh my goodness, our first 10 of the series.'
"The highest score of the series… but you can’t relish it for too long as you are then on to a new dance."
- Strictly Come Dancing continues next Saturday on BBC One at 7pm
