Johnny Ball eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2012

Johnny Ball has become the first contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

The TV personality and his professional partner Iveta Lukosiute were forced into a dance-off with Daybreak presenter Richard Arnold and his partner Erin Boag after both couples polled the lowest points in the public vote.

Both couples performed their routines for a second time in the dance-off – with Johnny and Iveta dancing a fox-trot to Michael Buble’s Everything and Richard and Erin cha-chaing to ‘Love Shack’ by The B52s.

The judges – Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood – had to choose which couple to save, but becauase Ball missed a step in his routine – Craig, Darcey and Bruno voted Richard to stay.

“I think for my age I did quite, quite well,” said Johnny “I’m so disappointed I’m leaving, I really, really am.”

The competition continues on Saturday evening, 6.30pm, BBC One..
