On Sunday night, Angela Rippon and Kai Widdrington were sent home after all four judges decided to save Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell.
It was an emotional moment for the 79-year-old as she bid a moving farewell to the show.
When speaking to Tess Daly, Angela said: “I have to tell you that the last nine weeks have probably been the most terrifying, the most fantastic, the most glorious, the most joyful that I have spent for a very long time in my profession.
“I have had the time of my life, people keep making reference to the fact that I presented Come Dancing, but that was forty years ago, that was a different time!
“He [Kai] wasn’t even born then! But actually being this side of the competition, this side of the programme has been really an eye-opener for me in so many different ways.
“Everybody talks about the team and all the pros – everyone who has danced – there is a real team spirit in this programme, unlike anything I’ve come across anywhere else in any of the many programmes I’ve done. It’s absolutely fabulous.”
Turning to her professional dance partner, Angela emotionally said: “The person who really has to get the most credit is this gentleman here [to Kai].”
“He’s [Kai] an old soul on young shoulders. He’s 28 and I’m 79, there’s a 51-year difference in our ages.
“He has looked after me so brilliantly, he’s a wonderful dancer and a great choreographer, but he’s a terrific teacher… and he has the patience of a saint!
“All I can say is that you’ve [to Kai] got me here so don’t you dare cry! He and his partner, Nadiya, are in every sense of the word beautiful people and I am so pleased to have you in my life.”
Kai fought back tears as he added: “Since week one when I met this amazing woman – as she said I wasn’t even born when she did Come Dancing, I had to ask my parents about the amazing Morecombe and Wise moment that was so famous, and about Come Dancing. Like Angela just said, there’s a 50-year age gap between us, but we’re like mates!
“Dancing with you [to Angela] the whole way through this competition has just been such a celebration of yourself and her life and I wish she could see me now.
“I’m so proud of you [to Angela] and you should be proud of yourself, it’s been my absolute honour and pleasure to dance with you especially in this beautiful ballroom.”
Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
