Spirits remained high on Saturday evening as Dan Walker left Elstree Studios after making it through to the Strictly Come Dancing quarter-final at the expense of fan favourite Tilly Ramsay

The BBC presenter has been criticised for his continued survival on the show after making it to the latter stages of the competition alongside professional dance partner Nadiya Bychkova despite receiving a series of inconsistent scores. 

But he remained characteristically upbeat after filming the live show and its following pre-recorded results show at the Hertfordshire compound, with Tilly the latest celebrity to be given her marching orders.

Offering a thumb’s up to onlookers, a delighted Dan, 44, drove out of the studio gates after assuring himself an unexpected semi-final spot. 

Following the presenter, Ukrainian pro Nadiya – a specialist in Latin American ballroom dancing – looked equally pleased as she occupied a seat in the rear of her car. 

The 32-year old wore a stylish check coat and over-the-knee boots as she acknowledged those who had waited outside the studio gates on Saturday evening.

Strictly fans have claimed the show is a ‘fix’ after Dan made it through to next week’s show and Tilly Ramsay was eliminated, but the BBC presenter has fired back online.

The social media star, 19, was eliminated on Sunday night’s pre-recorded episode after she and Nikita Kuzmin landed in the bottom two with Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu.

While Tilly has turned out consistently strong performances week after week, Dan has had less consistent results from the judging panel.

However, Dan did not take the criticism lying down and encouraged his detractors to lighten up, reminding them it’s only a TV show.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: ‘Thank you to everyone who is sending lovely messages & enjoying us having fun on #Strictly.

‘And to the few who say… “Just leave” “Aren’t you ashamed?” “You’re a disgrace” “It’s a fix” (which I don’t get) or “Who is voting for them?” IT’S A TV SHOW! See you in the 1/4 finals’.

Tilly and Nikita landed in the bottom two after they scored 30 for their Samba to Levitating by Dua Lipa and placed bottom of the leaderboard.

When asked by Tess about their time on the show, Tilly said: ‘I’d just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has made this an amazing, positive journey for me. From everyone here to backstage, wardrobe, make up and camera crew.

‘It’s just been the most extraordinary time. I found out something about myself that I didn’t know I could do, I didn’t know I could dance and have fun like this.

‘So a massive thank you and, obviously, a huge thank you to Nikita who has guided me out of my shell and has just made this the most amazing experience.’
