Goldie first to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing 2010
DJ Goldie
Goldie was partnered with Kristina

Hertfordshire DJ and actor, Goldie is the first contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2010.

The former James Bond villain received a respectable 26 for his foxtrot with dance partner, Kristina Rihanoff and 20 for last week's salsa from the judges.

Despite finishing fourth from bottom on the leader board he was voted off the show, after his scores, added to the public vote, put him in last place.

Goldie, born Clifford Price, lives in Hertfordshire with his partner, Mika.

Prince Harry

Born in Walsall in the West Midlands Goldie's mother was a Scottish pub singer, his father a Jamaican factory worker who left the family when he was very young.

Goldie was raised in child-care homes and by several foster parents after he was put up for adoption at the age of three.

The DJ, electronic music and visual artist has recently turned his hand to acting.

He has appeared in EastEnders and the Bond film The World is Not Enough.

He's also appeared as himself in the reality series Celebrity Big Brother and Maestro.

He is currently filming a news series for BBC Two called Goldie's Band - By Royal Appointment, where he will search the UK for 17 to 24-year-olds with raw musical talent, culminating in a gig at Buckingham Palace in front of Prince Harry.
