Concluding his interview, Mike expressed his amazement at the result, stating: “But a real shock to lose Dev and Dianne or indeed it would have been to lose Emma and Aljaž.”
Back in the BBC Breakfast studio, host Louise Minchin, 51, said: “You need to be voting for your favourite or things can happen.”
Dan Walker, 42, said of the remaining 12 celebrities still in the line-up: “Don’t get lost in the middle.”
The eliminated stars will make their first appearance following the shock result on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two this evening at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
