Mollie King has left "Strictly Come Dancing", just one week before the final.

The Saturdays singer and her professional partner AJ Pritchard were booted out of the competition, leaving Gemma Atkinson - who Mollie faced in the dance off, - Alexandra Burke, Debbie McGee and Joe McFadden to fight it out to win this year's Glitterball trophy.

Speaking after her exit, Mollie said: "Firstly congratulations to Gemma and Aljaž because they danced their socks off and totally deserved to be there and congratulations to all the finalists, they're so incredible and good luck, I can't wait to watch you all, so go out there and get it!

"I have so many thank you's. Thank you to everyone who has voted us through to the semi-finals, it's so far beyond what we ever thought that would happen; I'm so so grateful for that. Thank you to all the professionals, you have been so much fun and so encouraging.

"Thank you to the judges, you have just been unbelievable and I will forever remember everything that you said and I will take it on board when I'm dancing at home or wherever I'm dancing. And to Tess, Claudia and Zoe, you have been amazing, you have been so so just lovely and above all, AJ, you have been just incredible and you have been my hero for the last couple of months so thank you so much. I couldn't have done any of it without you."
