Danny John-Jules skipped the "Strictly Come Dancing" spin-off show after being eliminated from the competition.

The 58-year-old actor failed to appear on BBC Two's "It Takes Two" for his exit interview on Monday night (12.11.18) after he was voted off the dancing reality show on Sunday night (11.11.18), leaving his pro partner Amy Dowden to appear on the show without him.

The programme's presenter, Zoe Ball, said she was "disappointed" that Danny had not attended, but Amy admitted she was "proud" of the "Death in Paradise" star for his time in the competition.

Speaking on the programme, she said: "I'm so proud of Danny. He is such a talented performer.

"Danny, you belong there and I hope to see you on the stage performing very soon."
