Lisa Riley goes home

Lisa Riley lost out in the dance-off against Denise Van Outen in Strictly Come Dancing tonight.

The former Emmerdale star sobbed when she found out she was going home after ending up in the bottom two with Denise, who danced a tango with partner James Jordan to Roxanne by The Police.

Lisa and partner Robin Windsor’s American smooth to All That Jazz from the musical Chicago just didn’t cut it.

The judges were unanimous.

Next week Denise, gymnast Louis Smith, Girl Aloud star Kimberley Walsh and actress Dani Harmer will compete in the final.

‘It’s been the best time of my entire life, I can’t thank you enough,’ declared Lisa, 36.

‘From the costume to the make-up, everybody backstage is just beyond belief, and all the judges, I’ve had the time of my life.

‘And one person has made that and that’s Robin Windsor. He has just been amazing.’
