Chizzy Akudolu is the first celebrity to leave "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "Holby City" star was booted out of BBC One's latin and ballroom competition on Sunday night (01.10.17) after failing to impress in the dance off against Brian Conley.

Speaking after her exit, Chizzy said: "Thank you to everyone who has supported."

And talking about her professional partner Pasha Kovalev, she added: "And this guy ... this dude, I have loved every minute dancing with him and it will continue because I will just be going round his house to dance now. But I don't have his address so if anyone could email me I would appreciate it! And thank you to the judges for the constructive criticism which I will take on board. Thank you."

Whilst Pasha told the 43-year-old actress: "You were so much fun to work with, all the laughs we had together, all the great dancing we did together I absolutely enjoyed every single second of it and fine, come over to my house!"

Whilst Craig opted to save Chizzy and Pasha, Darcey and Bruno both chose to save Brian and Amy.

Darcey said: "Well firstly both couples for their enthusiasm and the amount of hard work they've put into their performances has been fabulous, thank you. But the couple I would like to save on having more dance content is Brian and Amy."

And Bruno added: "Oh first dance off is terrible, the nerves! Both were far from perfect but I have to say one couple stood out; it popped more, the timing was better, the delivery was better and for that reason I choose Brian and Amy."

Head Judge Shirley admitted it was a "difficult decision" but in the end, opted to save Brian and Amy.

She said: "Well it's quite a difficult decision I feel that both of them bought quite nice performances there, but the person I'm going to save because I felt like they had a bit more musicality and content this evening is Brian."

"Strictly Come Dancing" continues on BBC One on Saturday October 7.
