Strictly’s Greg Wise is third star eliminated after facing Judi Love in a dance-off

Greg Wise has become the third contestant to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

The actor, who is partnered with Karen Hauer, faced Judi Love and her partner Graziano Di Prima in the dance off, but were sadly voted off the show.

Graziano and Judi performed a Waltz to Hero by Mariah Carey, while Greg and Karen did the Samba to Macarena by Los Del Rio.

However, the judges delivered their verdicts and it was bad news for Greg and Karen.

Craig Revel Horwood opted to save Judi and Graziano, said: "‘The judges have been given this opportunity to save the better dancer and, for me, the better dancer tonight is Judi and Graziano."

Motsi Mabuse made the same decision, saying: "In the dance off I feel like both couples made mistakes and they were quite clear, but I feel that one couple recovered a little bit better with the situation. So I’m going to save Judi and Graziano."

Anton said: "I felt that the nerves got to both of the couples in the dance off, which is not surprising really, and they both made quite a lot of mistakes, but one couple maintained an element of composure through the dance and that would be Judi and Graziano."

This left Graziano and Judi with the majority, and with the final vote, Head Judge Shirley Ballas revealed she'd have saved Greg and Karen.

"‘Well I counted all the mistakes and from what I saw I would have saved Greg and Karen."

After being voted off, Greg discussed his time on the show, revealing: "I have had an amazing time, I feel unbelievably privileged and thank you all for having me."

Karen said to her partner: “It has been a blast, thank you for the amazing lunches, thanks for the quality of work, and for being an amazing student. I have enjoyed our moments in the classroom, and just having fun with you, I’ve really enjoyed it."
