Ben Cohen's stint on Strictly Come Dancing came to an end on Sunday night when he was voted off the show after a dance-off with actor Mark Benton.

Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff performed a Charleston to No Diggity by Minimatic but in the dance-off their nerves got the better of them and the judges picked up on two errors.

He said he was not surprised to be ejected. "I didn't expect I'd be on past the second or third week … I'm the weakest dancer out of everyone that's left, and that's a fact ... [but] when would I get to dress like this every day, wear all the lycra and maybe not a top.

"Now I can dance at my kid's parties. Kristina has been great, I've thrown her into walls, dropped her a few times and she has been great - thanks ever so much for putting up with me."

Rihanoff said Cohen had improved each week having "started at zero". "You make me so proud and I've had the best, most rewarding time on Strictly. If there was a trophy for the most improved person it would go to you."
