Strictly Come Dancing 2019: David James is the fourth celebrity to get the boot... after facing Mike Bushell in the dance off

David James has become the fourth celebrity to be sent packing on Strictly Come Dancing 2019.

The 49-year-old former footballer and his dance partner Nadiya Bychkova faced off against Mike Bushell and Katya Jones in the dance off after receiving the lowest number of votes from the public.

Both couples vied to impress the judges by performing their routines again, but David and Nadiya's Jive to Such a Night by Michael Bublé failed to make a lasting impression.

Go for gold like Tess wearing a dress by Rixo

Tess Daly was glowing tonight on Strictly Come Dancing's results show and we are feeling super inspired by her look.

Styled by the incredible James Yardley, Tess wears Rixo's 'Daisy' dress and we are totally obsessed with everything about it, from the puff sleeves to the little-bit-longer-than-midi length.

This stunning piece isn't hitting the stores for another couple of weeks but you can shop Rixo's current sequin pieces by clicking the image (right).

We think that a dress like this is perfect for the upcoming party season and we can guarantee that all eyes will be on you, no matter where you are.

If you don't want to wait any longer to invest in a style like this one, then head to the carousel below to shop our edit of gold sequin dresses. There's a super similar option from Sea, so go and take a look and thank us later.

Head Judge Shirley Ballas said she would have also chosen to save Mike and Katy, explaining, 'Yes I would have saved Mike and Katya.'
