Both couples performed their routines again, with Saffron and AJ performing their Samba to Walking On Sunshine, and Karim and Amy performed their Contemporary Couples Choice to Drops Of Jupiter in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.
Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Bruno Tonioli unanimously voted to save Karim and Amy, sending Saffron home.
When asked by host Tess Daly about her time on the show, Saffron said: “I’ve had the absolute time of my life and it’s all down to him. It’s been amazing.
“I’d like to thank AJ so much, when I look at what I was like on week one I was so embarrassed and shy. He’s really taken me out of my shell. Thank you so much for everything.”
AJ added: “Every single week you’ve approached it with a positive mental attitude and you’ve inspired so many… on your own social media too.
“As a non-dancer starting from day one I’m not going to lie, I was a bit scared, but performing those fantastic dances has been amazing. I’ll never ever ever forget that dance. Thank you. The best partner. Thank you. ”
The five remaining couples will take to the dancefloor next week when Strictly returns to BBC One for a musicals special.
