Greg, who was paired with professional Karen Hauer, danced the samba to Macarena this weekend.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood told him: “It did look like you’d just come out of a double hip replacement operation, very clunky, and especially through the hip circles, technically really quite bad actually…”

But Craig added: “I loved the shirt, I loved the smile.”

Despite this, Greg, 55, still smiled as three of the four judges on the panel chose to keep Judi Love and Graziano Di Prima in the competition over him and Karen.

This weekend was Judi’s second time in the dance-off on the series. This time it was her and Graziano’s waltz that got them the votes from Craig, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke. Head judge Shirley Ballas said: “Well, I counted all the mistakes and from what I saw I would have saved Greg and Karen [Hauer].”

Greg, who is married to Dame Emma Thompson and is known for his roles in Sense and Sensibility and The Crown told Strictly’s host Tess Daly: “I’ve had an amazing time, I feel unbelievably privileged and thank you all for having me.”

Greg’s dance partner Karen told him: “It has been a blast, thank you for the amazing lunches, thanks for the quality of work and for being an amazing student. I have enjoyed just having fun.”

He spoke to Daly’s fellow host Claudia Winkleman just before the results were delivered and Greg admitted: “I got the fear”. 

The actor had previously said he was doing the show in memory of someone very special to him, his sister Clare. Clare passed away five years ago and had a “glitterball” coffin.

Greg and Karen got a total of 19 which put them at the bottom of the leaderboard. They were in the bottom with Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec at the top having danced their way there with a tango performance. 

Rugby player Ugo Monye had to miss a week in the competition in order to rest following a back injury.
