Alex Scott leaves Strictly Come Dancing

Alex Scott has been voted off ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
The 35-year-old former soccer player has become the latest celebrity to leave the BBC dance show, after losing in the dreaded dance-off to comedian Chris Ramsay.
However, the judges were split by the decision, with Craig Revel Horwood voting to save Alex and her pro partner Neil Jones.
He said: "I really loved the refreshing fusion of this particular dance and the fact that the dance was performed very, very well and the couple I’d like to save is Alex and Neil."
Craig’s view of the dance-off was shared by Motsi Mabuse, who also voiced her support for Alex.
She explained: "I have to be honest, I have to say this is one of the most difficult things I have had to do for a long time, you were both great, I enjoyed it …. I’m going to save Alex and Neil."
On the other hand, Bruno Tonioli chose to save Chris.
Revealing his decision, he said: "It’s very hard and at this stage it’s going to get even harder but purely based on what I saw tonight, I firmly believe that the stronger overall more convincing powerful entertaining couple is Chris and Karen."
And Head Judge Shirley Ballas followed suit with her deciding vote.
She reflected: "Well, again this is a very, very difficult decision. Both couples danced extremely well and for me it’s going to go personal taste, and I’m going to go with the couples that I felt had the most content and more powerfully entertaining and therefore I am saving Chris and Karen."
Despite her disappointment, Alex insisted she loved her ‘Strictly’ experience.
She shared: "I’ve been a fan of ‘Strictly’ forever so to even be here and dance here every week…
"I’ve loved every moment and I have to thank everyone, and everyone behind the scenes to make this show work."
