    Strictly Come Dancing has been hit with yet another results leak.

    One more celebrity has been booted out of the BBC competition following Jody Cundy's exit last weekend. The Paralympian got axed after judges Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke, Motsi Mabuse, and Craig Revel Horwood, voted for save comedian Eddie Kadi once they performed in the dance-off.

    Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin found themselves at the top of the leaderboard on Saturday (October 21) after scoring an 39 points out of 40 for their impressive Salsa followed closely by Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola, who received 37 points for their Paso Doble.

    At the other end of the scale, comedian Eddie Kadi and his partner Karen Hauer were awarded 24 out of 40 and Nigel Harman receiving just 28 out of 40 for his latest routine with Katya Jones. While viewers won't officially know who is leaving until Sunday's (October 22) results show, fans are often left disappointed after spoilers revealing the identity of the axed pairing are shared online the night before, ruining the anticipation for the results show.

    Following the leaking of the fourth elimination of the series, fans took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express their frustration with the outcome. One fan penned: "Another right decision". A second fan penned: "Not surprised at all, but I do wonder how far the person who was saved can go. It feels like they’ve hit a ceiling in terms of public support and I see them being in the bottom again next week again. It’s sad because this person is actually potentially very good."

    A third person said: "Not a shock but it could have been either of them." A fourth social media user said: "Right decision unfortunately." Someone else wrote: "Absolutely the right decision and absolutely the right bottom two." Daily Star have decided to not share the result.

    It comes after Layton and Nikita very nearly got a full 40 from the judges – but lost just a single point.

    Despite not getting a 40 in week five, the pair were informed that they still broke a record with their high score of 39 from the judges. Craig Revel Horwood kicked it off with a nine, followed by tens from Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.

    The duo went to talk to host Claudia Winkleman about their performance while they waited for the judges scores to come in, and after hearing the results, they were thrilled. The host told the pair: "We haven't had a 39 in week five for 13 years."

    Nikita stood up on the table before jumping off after showing off his excitement. Meanwhile, their co-stars also rushed to swoon over the duo. The judges hit them with some incredible feedback as Motsi said: "You guys, I could just steal you and put you in that show." Meanwhile Shirley added: "You are both on the same page with the choreography… nothing ever looks ugly, untidy, in this style of dancing.
