Davood Ghadami has been eliminated from "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "EastEnders" actor and his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova have become the tenth couple to leave the competition after facing off against Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez in the dance-off.

After Davood and Nadiya performed their "Phantom of the Opera" Argentine Tango again while the "Bad Boys" singer and her partner re-did their Charleston to "Supercalifragilistic", thejudges unanimously chose to save Alexandra and Gorka.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "This couple were out there on a mission and completely and utterly nailed it. That couple is Alexandra and Gorka."

Darcey Bussell agreed and said: "Both couples gave 100% tonight and it's tough to see anybody go but there was one performance that totally outshined the other and that was Alexandra and Gorka."

Despite being out of the competition, Davood left with a smile on his face as he admitted he'd done much better than he expected.

He said: "When asked by Tess if he had enjoyed her time on the show, Davood said: "There have been so many highlights I've had, honestly the best time.

"I never thought I'd get this far which is why I'm smiling as I never thought I'd reach this point. I never thought I'd get to see and meet such amazing people.

"We're all mates, every comment I've ever received good and bad, and to dance in front of audiences like this has been a real gift and I've never done anything like this before so it's been an unforgettable experience."

The 32-year-old actor went on to pay tribute to his wife Isobel and their two daughters, as well as his dance partner.

He said: "I'm going to spend the next couple of weeks at home dancing with my two beautiful girls who are now huge fans of the show.

"It's all because of one person and I also need to thank so many people, my beautiful family, my wife who's been running Team Ghadami whilst we've been doing this, but this is Nadiya's first year on this show and I think she's done incredibly well.

"She's done brilliant choreography, she's a brilliant dancer and she's a great teacher and now she's a really good friend and I'm so privileged to have met her, thank you!"

The remaining five couples will perform two dances in the semi-final next week.
