Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton has missed out on a place in the final of Strictly Come Dancing after being voted out in the penultimate show.

Cricketer Mark Ramprakash and rugby star Matt Dawson will now go through to next Saturday's final hoping to win the fourth series of the BBC One show.

Previous winners were Darren Gough, Jill Halfpenny and Natasha Kaplinsky.

The series sees celebrities paired with professional dancers and challenged to learn new dances in a week.

This week Bunton and the other contestants had to impress the panel of judges with their own versions of the Argentine tango, salsa, foxtrot and quickstep.

Ramprakash and his partner Karen Hardy scored the highest points of the series when the four judges awarded them 39 out of 40 for their Argentine tango.
