Dr. Ranj Singh was the sixth celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing following a closely fought dance-off with Charles Venn during Sunday evening’s results show. 

The celebrities were forced to perform their respective dances again after receiving the lowest votes from the general public, combined with the results of Saturday evening’s overall scores. 

Taking to the dance-floor with professional partner Janette Manrara, Dr Ranj performed his Samba to Freedom 90 by George Michael, while former EastEnders star Charles and partner Karen Clifton repeated their Viennese Waltz to Piano Man by Billy Joel.

But it was ultimately Charles – no stranger to the dance-off – who was saved after a series of  tough decisions by the judging panel, who admitted they wanted to save both.  

‘I found this one really difficult actually, two very different dancers, two very different sets of dance skill as well,’ said Craig Revel Horwood. ‘But for me the most improved in that set of skills was Ranj and Janette.’  

Darcey Bussell agreed, adding: ‘Again, I don’t want to choose between these two lovely gentlemen but for me the more improved performance on the night was Charles and Karen.’ 

Bruno Tonioli chose to save Charles and Karen, telling host Tess Daly: ‘Can I have them both?! Completely contrasting dances, both very entertaining.

‘But I have to choose the most polished dancer and performer and for that reason I choose Charles and Karen.’

Rounding things off, head Judge Shirley Ballas also chose to save Charles and Karen, but insisted it was by no means an easy decision. 

‘First of all for me it’s a heart-breaking decision ‘cause I think both couples have done amazingly well,’ she said. 

‘Both couples have made little iddy-biddy errors that I can see but due to great timing, sophistication I am going to choose Charles and Karen.’

Reflecting on her six-weeks with the TV doctor, Janette added: 'I just want to say he is an incredible human being for what he does as an actual job. He is there saving children’s lives and he is a special, special man'

‘I can’t express how much this has meant to me,’ he said. ‘I have made friends for life. I’ve done something that I only could have dreamed of. I just want to say to anyone who ever dreams of this you can, you really can, ’cause I’m here and I’ve done it.’ 

Reflecting on her six-weeks with the TV doctor, Janette added: ‘I just want to say he is an incredible human being for what he does as an actual job. He is there saving children’s lives and he is a special, special man. 

‘On this show you get to celebrate people that have never done something like this before and for me Ranj is the epitome about what Strictly Come Dancing is about. I couldn’t have asked for a better friend, a better partner or better series I love you so so much. Thank you.’
