Angela Scanlon out of Strictly Come Dancing 2023

This weekend, Angela Scanlon became the ninth contestant to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing as she faced Layton Williams in the dreaded dance off.

When the viewer votes and judges’ scores were combined, Angela and Layton ended up in the bottom two, forcing them to perform once more for the judges.

Layton and his dance partner Nikita Kuzmin performed their American Smooth to It’s Oh So Quiet by Bjork, while Angela and her dance partner Carlos Gu performed their Cha Cha to I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor.

The judges had to decide who they wanted to keep in the competition.

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Layton and Nikita stating that theirs was “technically the better dance of the night” while Motsi Mabuse saved them on “musicality and balance”. Anton Du Beke also chose to save Layton and Nikita but noted that the decision had been a close one with an error swinging it for him.

Going against the grain, although to no effect, head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have decided to save Angela and Carlos.

When asked by [host] Tess Daly about her time on the show, Angela said:

“It’s been honestly incredible, I’m gutted, really gutted that it’s finished now, but it has been the most wonderful experience. I have made the best friend in this man [to Carlos]. We have had so much fun, he is such an incredible guy. He has supported me and picked me up and made me laugh so much. I don’t know what to say, it’s been magical honestly – all of those people up there! My husband at home, my two little girls and all my friends!”

Carlos added: “Her commitment and her strength every day, day by day – I’m a professional dancer and she works so hard, harder than me! Look at her now – I am so proud, her sense of humour and we had so much fun everyday – she cracks me up laughing!”

Tonight’s results show opened with a Hollywood glam, whodunnit-inspired routine from the pros. A musical interlude was provided by Texas with ‘Inner Smile’ to which Vito Coppola and Luba Mushtuk provided some dance moves.

The remaining five couples will take to the dancefloor again next Saturday (December, 2) in a Musicals special.
