Caroline Quentin became the fourth contestant to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday.

During the pre-recorded results show, the actress, 60, took part in the dance-off against Maisie Smith - who narrowly avoided the chop for a second time - after scoring 24 and 27 points out of 40, respectively.

The former Jonathan Creek star hailed professional partner Johannes Radebe as her 'greatest gift' as she claimed her five-week stint fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a dancer.

The broadcaster fell short when she and South African dancer Johannes, 33, performed the Cha Cha to Rescue Me by Fontella Bass, while EastEnders star Maisie, 19, and Gorka Márquez, 30, danced the Salsa to Meghan Trainor's Better When I'm Dancing.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke - who filled in for Motsi Mabuse while she self-isolates - unanimously chose to save the soap star once again following a challenging couple of weeks. 

When asked whether she's accomplished her aims by appearing on the BBC hit, presenter Caroline told hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly: 'Yeah.

'In a way slightly more than that because I have had the honour and privilege of working with some of the greatest dancers this country has ever known I mean I really believe it, I think they are absolutely fantastic. 

'But of course my greatest gift coming on this show is this man.'

Choreographer Johannes expressed his gratitude towards the axed star as he added: 'Oh my gosh, what a woman, thank you, thank you again!

Keeping in theme with the Elstree-based 'Blackpool' special, the professional dancers showcased their fancy footwork as they danced to Billy Ocean. 

However, his performance on Sunday night's results show didn't go down too well with viewers.

The legendary crooner, 70, performed a medley of his hits, but sounded a tad off-key - which didn't go unnoticed.

'Oh dear... Billy Ocean on Strictly - sounds like me after a few gins!' one person posted on Twitter. 

Another quipped: 'Billy Ocean should be the one going home #awful!'

'I feel like perhaps Billy Ocean's in-ears aren't working,' someone else remarked.

'A bit pitchy!' another tweeted, followed by someone else who typed: 'Is this a Billy Ocean tribute act? Am I watching Phoenix Nights?'

'My Big Billy Ocean Bae is struggling a bit here,' someone else posted.

Others didn't seem to mind however.

'Billy Ocean on #Strictly! Damn, 2020 suddenly doesn't seem too bad. Can't beat a bit of 80s pop, we all know it was the best music decade!' one tweeted.

'Billy Ocean singing Red Light Spells Danger on Strictly is all anyone needs on a Sunday evening!' gushed a second.
