For the first time in 15 series I have cried because a contestant left Strictly. Actual proper ugly crying tears. @SusanCalman and @keviclifton were joy, and light, and fun personified. Everyone should be a bit more like them and the world would be a lot nicer #Strictly2017
Thanks to everyone who voted for us in Strictly. I've had the time of my life dancing with @keviclifton. It's been a pleasure from start to finish. I've had the time of my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you. pic.twitter.com/GptSWBfoHk
