Ricky-Groves-280_933844aThe OTB curse struck again last weekend as Ricky Groves became the latest Strictly Come Dancing contestant to be voted off after meeting us for an interview.

Admittedly, he did last a little longer than Craig Kelly who was booted from the show as we finished typing up the chat we had a couple of weeks ago.

Tough judge Craig Revel Horwood blasted him for his “mechanical” performance and Bruno Tonioli said it ended “very, very badly‚Ä?.

But Ricky, who played hapless mechanic Garry Hobbs in EastEnders, refused to be miserable and thanked everyone for the experience.

“I’ve met Rod Stewart, I’ve met Shirley Bassey and most importantly I’ve met Erin Boag, so thank you very much.”

We can also reveal that the final will be contested by two couples rather than three after Jade Johnson pulled out of the competition with a knee injury last week.

The BBC should have just put Jedward in there instead…
