STRICTLY Come Dancing has only just started, but for one celebrity their time on the show is over.
Judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke have had the final say, and one star contestant was told to leave the dancefloor.
Who left Strictly tonight?
Celebrity Nina Wadia and her pro partner Neil Jones were given the boot.
After last weekend's first live show, there was everything to play or, as, while TV host AJ Odudu led proceedings, there was only a few marks separating each couple.
On Saturday night, Dragons Den star Sara Davies enjoyed a real turn around of fortunes as she bounced back from getting one of the lowest scores in week 1 to getting one of the highest in week 2, earning 34 out of a possible 40 for her ballroom.
However, for Nina and her partner Neil, the end of the road was inevitable.
The pair had several slip ups during their routine and new judge Anton Du Beke was heavily critical of the couple, stating their dance made him feel “uncomfortable”.
Several BBC viewers agreed with Anton’s comments, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One said: "Wrong music for the tango?"
Another remarked: "Tango music for Nina’s dance is a bit too… happy? For lack of a better word."
One more person Tweeted: "I like Nina, but this music really isn’t working for me."
Who was in the dance off?
Katie McGlynn and her partner Gorka Marquez were tied into a deciding dance off with Nina and her partner Neil.
Once each couple finished their final dance off routines, it was then all down to the judges to decide which couple remains and leaves.
Craig Revel Horwood and Moti Mabuse both used their votes to save Katie.
Anton then thought for a while and decided to save Nina, despite his critical analysis of the 52-year-old.
It then went to Shirley Ballas who's deciding vote went to Katie, meaning Nina and Neil were both eliminated.
