Lee Ryan has left "Strictly Come Dancing".

The Blue singer was booted out of the competition on Sunday night (07.10.18) after failing to impress judges Shirley Ballas, Dame Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.

Speaking to host Tess Daly after his exit, he said: "I've had a really lovely time, even though it's been short it seems like I've been here a long time because it's been so intense, it's been amazing. I love these guys, I absolutely love every single one of them. There's so much love in everyone it's been a memory that I will treasure for the rest of my life, I really will."

And his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova praised Lee for being an "amazing person".

She told him: "Just stay the way you are because you're such an amazing person and I love you so much."

To try and save their place in the competition, Lee and Nadiya danced their Cha Cha Cha to "The Power Of Love" from "Back To The Future" whilst Charles Venn and his partner Karen Clifton performed their American Smooth to Up Where We Belong in the dance off.

Revealing that they chose to save Charles and Karen, Craig said: "The better dancers for me on the night were Charles and Karen."

Head Judge Shirley Ballas said she would have chosen to save Lee and Nadiya.
