Gethin Jones dances off Strictly

17th December 2007

Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones has been voted off reality show Strictly Come Dancing, leaving Alesha Dixon and Matt Di Angelo to fight for the title. The 29-year-old Welshman was favourite to win the competition after improving dramatically over the last few weeks.

But he was forced into a dance-off with EastEnders star Di Angelo after the public vote put him in the bottom two. Only one judge, Arlene Philips, thought Jones's moves were good enough to progress to the final on 22 December.

The other three panellists voted for Di Angelo, who will now compete with R&B star Dixon for the title of Strictly Come Dancing champion. "I've had an incredible adventure and now I have some great dance moves," said Jones after the judges made their decision. "My friends never expected me to get past week two."

Jones had been bottom of the judges' scorecard after Saturday's live show, in which he performed two numbers with professional dance partner Camilla Dallerup.

Last year's competition was won by cricketer Mark Ramprakash.
