Actress Fiona Fullerton has become the latest contestant to be eliminated from BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.

The former Bond girl and professional partner Anton du Beke were placed in the dance-off with actor Mark Benton and his partner Iveta Lukosiute after Saturday night's Blackpool Tower Ballroom show.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood voted to save Fullerton and du Beke, with Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli choosing to save Benton and Lukosiute.

Head judge Len Goodman had the deciding vote and said: "The thing is in the dance-off, you've really got to up your game or nerves stifle your performance."

He continued: "One couple, I felt, really did up their game. The other, I think, nerves got them and there was a lot of mistakes going on. And for that reason I'm going to save Mark."

Fullerton described her time on the show as the "most amazing trip".

She said: "I can't thank you enough, or the producers at the BBC, for asking me to take part in this show."

Fullerton continued: "It's been fantastic, thank you. Anton has been unbelievably patient, I can't tell you. I honestly have a memory like a colander. He's been utterly brilliant."

Du Beke said: "From my perspective, this whole fabulous show is made fun because of the people we get to dance with, and you are just a joy. Every day I come in I get to dance with you. You are really lovely."
