The 45-year-old Paralympian and his professional partner Jowita Przystal have become the third couple to leave the hit BBC show as they failed to impress the judges with their Salsa to 'Samba de Janeiro' by Bellini.

Jody and Jowita found themselves in the dreaded dance off with comedian Eddie Kadi and his partner Karen Hauer - who judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke all agreed to save.

Head judge Shirley Ballas was not required to give her vote but said that she also would have also chosen to save Eddie and Karen.

When asked by host Tess Daly about his time on 'Strictly', Jody - who celebrated his 45th birthday on Saturday (14.10.23) - said: "You know what, when I signed up for this, I thought what an earth am I signing up for and we did that first live show and I absolutely loved every second of it. And just being able to dance and do something I've never done before and get completely out of my comfort zone and with this amazing person. This person’s got so much energy, every morning like nine o'clock we've got, start of training and she's like BAMMM, like this, she comes into the room like an absolute cannonball and she just doesn’t stop the whole day. And she doesn’t lose any faith, doesn't lose anything, motivates me on to do more and more. So, I've had an absolute blast."

Jowita said of her partner: "I cannot even describe how proud I am of you Jody, cause from day one till now, it's enormous improvement. And I hope from now on, when you go out, when you hear the music, you're not going to hide anywhere. You're going to go on that dance floor and you're going to give it all. And I hope, one day when you look back at all of this, you will say to yourself I'm proud of myself, because that will be my biggest achievement."

Jody and Jowita will make a final appearance together on Monday's (16.10.23) episode of the spin-off show 'It Takes Two', while the remaining couples will take to the dance floor again next Saturday (21.10.23) at 6.35pm on BBC One.
