Mike & # 39; a Bushell & # 39; time on Strictly Come Dancing came to an end when BBC Breakfast presenter was on the fourth and final dance of the evening. After combining the judges' results with the votes of viewers, Mike and Katya Jones were revealed in a terrifying dance alongside Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice.
Last night Michelle finished the evening in second place in the leaderboard, while the judges received the lowest overall rating.
Dancing for the chance to play at Blackpool, Mike and Katya performed Paso Doble for the second time, while Michelle and Giovanni performed American Smooth.
After the dances of both couples, the judges unanimously voted to save Michelle and decided to send Mike & # 39; and home.
Explaining her decision, Motsi said, "Me honestly I must say that I've seen the best results from most couples.
"I really, really mean, that one pair was the clear winner of the dance and I will save Michelle and Giovanni."
Bruno added: "Well, with all due respect to all of you, I have to save a pair that really played at the highest level, and for me this pair is Michelle and Giovanni."
When asked about the time Tess Daly spent on the program, Mike admitted that Katya had "performed miracles on him."
He said: "I had the most amazing 9 or 10 weeks from the start of the training. I lost a stone and a half.
"I'm a guy in my fifties, I'm mentally sharper, I feel able to handle stressful situations – thanks to dancing!
"It totally changed me honestly. I will not stop dancing. My wife Emily supported me all the time and my daughters. "
"Each moment was an absolute honor and joy," he added. "I didn't think I'd get that far, so I already booked a hotel in Blackpool, so I'm still going."
The BBC Breakfast presenter praised his professional partner for transforming him into a dancer.
Mike noted: "This amazing teacher, Katya, can't say how much she's involved.
"She would be the best sports coach in history, lets you believe that everything is possible.
"She didn't leave me alone, we had difficult routines and I can't believe the miracles you did. There are so many memories. "
Katya added: "To be honest, I'm so proud of him and I think that even after this dance, which I think is the best, you can leave with a raised head and in my eyes you are the winner.
"The only thing he lost is weight. He came every day, giving his heart, soul, everything, 200 percent no matter what after each dance and thank you very much. "
"I'm so sorry I couldn't go to Blackpool," Katya said.
Today's performance show began with a group dance inspired by Memorial Sunday, and then in the evening Hollywood actor Luke Evans performed.
Meanwhile, Michelle was reportedly "thrown out of the road" next year after the producers decided she was no longer needed.
The dance at Strictly Come continues on Saturday at BBC One at 19:05.
