Helen George leaves Strictly Come Dancing

Helen George has been voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Call The Midwife' star was booted out of the BBC One competition after all the show's judges - Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood - opted to save Georgia May Foote and her dance partner Giovanni Pernice.

Speaking after her exit, Helen said: "I've just had the most amazing time and spending the time with Aljaž [Skorjanec; her dancing partner]. He's a fantastic teacher and a friend.

"Also, I'm taking away a brilliant group of mates who I want to see lots in the future."

Whilst Aljaž joked: "We're still going to rehearse Monday; we're going to go back and do choreography."

Before adding: "Every single week, you amaze me with the level of professionalism, with the level of your commitment to every single dance. It was a pure joy. Thank you so much."

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old actress previously insisted her ballet background hasn't given her an advantage in the show, but that it is actually a "disadvantage" in some cases.

She shared: "I put the man hours in but I just wasn't good enough. Ballet is actually a disadvantage in some areas. And all of us are performers or presenters or actors already so it's the same for everyone."
