Griffin whose Cha Cha Cha fell short said: "I am absolutely gutted, but learning how to dance, hanging out with Dianne and the other pros and celebs... I've absolutely loved it."

His professional dancing partner, Australian dancer Dianne Buswell said she was "sad" Griffin will not be able to demonstrate more of his "talent". she commended him on how hard he worked: "His work ethic is insane. I see him everywhere practising and I couldn't have asked for a better partner."

Weymouth and Skorjanec jive protected them from elimination with the judges saying their routine was: "stronger, cleaner and focused".
