Former footballer John Barnes became the eighth person to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing.

His samba failed to impress judges, who chose to save actress Kelly Brook.

The former Liverpool and England star and partner Nicole Cutler. had survived four previous dance-offs but this week his luck ran out.

Judge Bruno Tonioli told Barnes: "The samba should be your dance. It looked like you were rehearsing in the corridor, looking at the floor."

Next week all the remaining couples will have to perform two dances.

Still in the contest are Kelly Brook, singer Alesha Dixon, Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones, rugby player Kenny Logan and soap actors Letitia Dean and Matt Di Angelo.
