Mistry gets voted off Strictly

ACTOR Jimi Mistry became Strictly Come Dancing’s latest casualty when he became the fifth celebrity to be voted off.

The judges awarded him 32 out of a possible 40 points for the quickstep, his highest in the competition, but it was not enough for him to stay on the show.

Mistry wiped a tear from his eye as he was given a standing ovation from both the judges and the studio audience.

His elimination leaves nine celebrities in the competition - Viewer favourite Ann Widdecombe, Kara Tointon, Gavin Henson, Matt Baker, Patsy Kensit, Felicity Kendal, Michelle Williams, Scott Maslen and Pamela Stephenson.

The remaining couples will dance next week to either a ballroom or Latin routine they have not yet performed.
