Katie Piper has left "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 35-year-old philanthropist and her professional partner Gorka Marquez was booted out of the competition on Sunday night (14.10.18), losing out in the dance off to Charles Venn and Karen Clifton.

Speaking after her exit, she said: "I have taken a lot from this experience and it has all been really positive, and I'll never forget this journey. Charles was the better dancer out of us two and there are some brilliant dancers in this competition and sadly I don't think I was one of them! But I have had a great experience you know and I feel really privileged to have been here and thanks for your advice and thank you [Gorka] for all the hours! One thing as well all the public not just the audience here but the general public have been so supportive online and have voted for me the other weeks so I feel thrilled to have been here for four weeks. So thank you to everyone."

Whilst Gorka added: "Well first of all thank you, for being such a wonderful human because you know everyone knows how much you have been through and everything but to get the chance to know you and be working with you and get to know how strong you are, how always wanting to be better and improve. For me that's my lesson and what I learnt from you."

Katie and Gorka performed their Jive to "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" once again, with all the judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Shirley Ballas opting to save Charles and Karen.
