Anthony Ogogo voted off Strictly

Anthony Ogogo has been voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The Olympic boxer has become the second celebrity to leave the BBC One dance competition and admitted he found it difficult to compete against other stars who have had previous dance training.

Anthony, 26, said: "I felt really gutted, I did feel really devastated and upset. I've never danced.

"When you're up against Jay McGuinness who's done ballet, and Helen George who's done ballet and Peter Andre who's been a pop star for as long as I've been alive, it's very, very hard to beat all those guys. I think it's hard to do well."

Anthony and his professional partner, Oti Mabuse, left the show on Sunday (11.10.15) after losing the dance off to Ainsley Harriott and Natalie Lowe.

But Anthony insisted he was happy the reality TV chef had gone through as they had become good friends during the competition.

He tweeted: "I love Ainsley, he was like my Strictly dad. Caring, considerate, funny and just damn awesome. Couldn't have lost to a better gentleman.

"The standard was unreal and lets be honest. I'm not the best. Lol. (sic)."

While Anthony enjoyed working with judge Darcey Bussell, who praised him as too good to leave in week three, he had harsh words for Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.

He said: "I think get Len, Craig and Bruno in the ring, I'll take them all on together."
