Deborah Meaden has been voted out of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Dragons' Den star is the fourth celebrity contestant to leave the competition, following fashion designer Julien Macdonald's departure last week.

Casualty actor Patrick Robinson and his partner Anya Garnis were in the bottom two with Meaden and her partner Robin Windsor, after the viewers' votes and judges' scores were combined.

Both couples repeated their dances to fight to stay in the competition. Meaden and Windsor performed a Viennese waltz to James Brown's It's a Man's Man's World, while Robinson and Garnis performed a salsa to Little Mix's Wings.

Judges Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell each chose to save Robinson, with head judge Len Goodman agreeing that he would have done the same.

Meaden said of taking part in the series:  "I can't tell you. Strictly gave me a gift but the big gift that Strictly gave me was this guy [Windsor]. To teach me to dance, to find something I never even knew I could do and to make it the best. He's wonderful. There's going to be tears. No, I'm a dragon, there'll be no tears."

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One on Saturday November 2 at 6.30pm.
