Strictly Come Dancing eliminates its first contestant of 2022

Kaye Adams is the first star to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2022.

Tonight’s result show marked the first exit after the public vote and judges’ scores from the opening night were combined with the results from week two.

The Loose Women star, 59, and Kai Widdrington, 27, found themselves in the bottom two with Matt Goss, 54, and Nadiya Bychkova, 33, but it was Kaye who got the boot.

Kaye and Kai performed their Charleston to Music! Music! Music! by Dorothy Provine. Matt and his dance partner Nadiya then performed their Samba to Night Fever by the Bee Gees.

Judges Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Craig Revel Horwood voted unanimously to keep the Bros star in the competition for another week.

Shirley Ballas, however, said she would have kept Kaye and Kai due to ‘a little better quality’.

Kaye agreed it was the right result though, telling Tess Daly: ‘I did make mistakes, and when it comes to that high pressured situation that’s what happens.

‘So I am delighted for Matt and Nadiya, the only person I am just sorry for is this wonderful man [Kai], who has just been so brilliant.

‘It was a hell of a lot of fun, I said my ambition was to learn to love to dance, and actually I have seen a whole new side to myself, it’s opened a little door.

‘It’s been a wonderful experience and to spend time with such talented people who love the show so much has been a joy!’

Kai added: ‘Well, you know, only we know how much real hard work has gone into this.

‘There has been lots of ups and downs and we won’t go into them, but this lady is a trooper, and I know what she’s been going through in the week.

‘For this woman to come out and give the performance that she did tonight really shows the testament to her character.

‘I am proud of you, I know that your girls and your other half are proud of you, but the most important thing is that you should be proud of yourself, because you are a superstar.’

Next week the remaining four couples will compete in Movie Week.

Strictly continues Saturday at 6.30pm on BBC One.
