Presenter and activist Katie Piper and her professional dance partner Gorka Márquez have become the third couple to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.

On Sunday night's results show, Piper and Márquez, dancing the Jive, lost out to actor Charles Venn and his professional partner Karen Clifton, dancing the Salsa. Venn and Clifton also survived last week's dance-off.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli all chose to save Venn and Clifton, with head judge Shirley Ballas - who has the deciding vote if there is a tie - saying she would have also saved Venn and Clifton.

"I've taken a lot from the experience and I'll never forget this journey," said Piper, adding that Venn was the better dancer.

Márquez described Piper as "wonderful" and said he had learned a great deal about resilience from her.

The competition continues next Saturday, October 20, on BBC One at 6:45pm.
