Groves and Boag were in the dance-off for a third week
EastEnders actor Ricky Groves and dance partner Erin Boag have been voted off Strictly Come Dancing, as athlete Jade Johnson withdrew through injury.
Johnson, partnered with Ian Waite, has failed to recover from a ligament injury sustained during training for the BBC One show.
The long jumper said she was "absolutely gutted" to have to quit.
Groves, this week's lowest scoring contestant, lost out in a dance-off with actress Laila Rouass.
Groves had performed the Tango with Boag, but told the judges he knew he had made mistakes during the routine.
He said: "You make mistakes, you've got to go, maybe it's my time to go."
"I'm not making excuses, I mucked up out there."
Head judge Len Goodman said there were "too many mistakes" and he "kept going wrong", while Bruno Tonioli said the performance ended "very, very badly".
Johnson, a two-times Commonwealth Games and European Championship silver medallist, is hoping for a podium finish at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Her injury raised fears she could jeopardise her long-term career if she continued in the competition.
She said: "I'm a competitor and I don't give up easily so I'm absolutely gutted that it means that I can't continue dancing in the show.
"I've had a great time and really enjoyed learning to dance, and I am going to miss training with Ian who has been a fantastic partner.
"I'd like to thank all of the people at home who have been supporting me right the way through."
