Your joy and professionalism have shone through every dance. I am not sure I will ever hear The Jam again in the same way. Reply Marion says: November 15, 2015 at 8:46 pm Your pure joy at participating shone through. Fabulous. So sorry your journey is over. Strictly wont be as much fun without you. Reply Sue says: November 15, 2015 at 9:58 pm It has been a total delight watching you week after week. You had so much fun and we could all see that. We are going to miss you, you had a great partner, she could have been six inches taller though, ha ha. All joking aside we will miss you. It was so much fun. Reply Pat Dancer says: November 16, 2015 at 9:22 am What a lovely message Jeremy. You were terrific, well done. You have gone very much up in my estimation! Reply Julie Smith says: November 16, 2015 at 12:00 pm Hi Jeremy, fistly, you have every right to have been in the competition as long as you have. In my eyes you should have won the dance off. Jamelia was in her fourth dance off and the public clearly are not warming to her. After all it’s an entertainment/popularity show as much as dance. Your joy at dancing was contagious and joyful. You will be sorely missed. Reply T Chapman says: November 19, 2015 at 4:38 pm Jeremy, I miss your personality, you’ve been great! Your performance has been very entertaining. Hope we’ll see you in Children In Need with a guitar. Thessa. Reply Catherine faulks says: November 15, 2015 at 8:10 pm Jeremy you were such a gentleman on strictly. You entered the true spirit of the show and were a joy to watch every week. Keeeep dancing Reply Claire Fishleigh says: November 15, 2015 at 8:10 pm So sad to see you leave Strictly, but what an inspiration you are to anyone who has ever had to fight against the odds. Well done xx Reply Denise says: November 15, 2015 at 8:11 pm You have been so entertaining, i will miss watching you dance, sorry you did not make Blackpool xx Reply celia says: November 15, 2015 at 8:11 pm We will miss you Jeremy. My enjoyment at watching Eggheads will be much enhanced by getting to ‘know’ what a delightful person you are. x Reply Amanda Newell says: November 15, 2015 at 8:11 pm You’ve been a joy to watch Jeremy. Your professionalism and wonderful attitude and respect towards others is an example to everyone! Thank you x Reply Julie says: November 15, 2015 at 8:12 pm Jeremy,,,you were Fabulous! just Fabulous,,and the most sincere darling man,,have loved your performances,,so sad to see you leave. Karen was the perfect partner for you. Thanks for the entertainment-you made this Strictly series extra special-Julie Xx Reply Helen Grieve says: November 15, 2015 at 8:12 pm I have loved your efforts every week, and it gives comfort to me, who truly cannot dance to save my life. Your determination and professionalism have been an inspiration, and I will sorely miss you and Karen. Now have to vote for Anton and Katie, as I dearly want Anton to lift the trophy for once, after all the partners he’s endured who had no hope! Reply Caroline says: November 15, 2015 at 8:13 pm Sadly today was the day. What a shame, you were great and so entertaining. But more importantly you demonstrated that you dont have to be brilliant at everything to be successful, (although I know you are brilliant in other fields!) You did a great job and represented all of us who do our best but will never be ‘the best’. What fantastic comments from your colleagues, that says everything. Well done!! Reply David O'Brien says: November 15, 2015 at 8:13 pm What has been amazing about you Jeremy is your gracious attitude to everyone around you. That is what has made you inspiring through this whole contest. You had a spirit of fun, and hard work through each dance, and appeared generous to everyone who has supported you. A true winner in many people’s eyes and a continual inspiration in trying out anything and not giving up too easily. You are a legend! Reply Pauline says: November 15, 2015 at 8:13 pm Dear Jeremy, I am a big fan of your radio show so was completely thrilled when it was announced you were going to be on Strictly. I can’t even begin to explain the joy you give each week with your clear commitment and sense of fun. Saturday evenings on Strictly will not be the same without you. God bless you and all the best. Pauline.x Reply Michele says: November 15, 2015 at 8:13 pm Well done Jeremy, excellent attitude ad example to your girls xx Reply Claire Marsh says: November 15, 2015 at 8:13 pm Jeremy Every week you made me smile and grow more and more in admiration of Karen.I think they should have let you do Blackpool anyway.Good Luck in everything you do…Oh and KEEP DANCING Reply Louise Clarke says: November 15, 2015 at 8:14 pm You were all that is lovely about Strictly.

Reply John Hueston says: November 15, 2015 at 8:28 pm Jeremy you are what Strictly Come Dancing is all about, entertainment. Each week you and Karen brought fun and a smile to the competition with your routines. Wish you had made it to Blackpool. Strictly will be poorer without your smile and Karen’s spirit. As Brucie used to say “Keep Dancing”. Just think you’ll be able to coach Ken Bruce for next year! Reply Caroline says: November 15, 2015 at 8:29 pm Gutted that you have gone Jeremy, but you went out in style dancing to my favourite band.

I wanted you to win this dance-off and get to Blackpool. Sorry to see you go.xxx Reply Christine says: November 15, 2015 at 8:29 pm I have watched Strictly from the beginning and love every element of it. Your participation in it has been a real high point. Although not the greatest dancer – your eagerness, your humour and your sheer entertainment value was so engaging. You on that horse will live long, alongside Anne Widdecombe flying and Russell Grant being fired from a cannon. Reply Rachel says: November 15, 2015 at 8:29 pm Jeremy so sad to see you go from strictly. It won’t be the same without u and your never ending smile. X Reply Jane says: November 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm You are certainly a winner, you had every right to stay in to week eight! You were a joy to watch with that infectious smile like Carol’s. Ever the professional and dedicated to the task in hand. Your daughters will no doubt be extremely proud of your effort to learn a new skill and to not give up! Fantastically well done, you are what Strictly should be about, the show will be all the poorer for you not being in it! Reply Joanne Martin says: November 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm Ah Jeremy I bother you on Twitter often but just wanted to congratulate you on your past few weeks of dance. I usually refrain from watching these “celebrity” focused programmes as most participating annoy me! I have dipped into watching Strictly because of you! My family joke as I’m always your biggest fan but you strike me as genuinely kind and caring – my profession gives me a radar!! Anyhow don’t be disheartened think of all you’ve achieved and like my husband always tells me “everyone’s mad except us!!” Cheers to you !!! Reply Beverley says: November 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm Thank you for entertaining us on Strictly! It has been lovely to watch you learning a new skill, and the pleasure you have derived from dancing with Karen has been a real joy to see. Well done 🙂 Reply Clare Hayward says: November 15, 2015 at 8:31 pm Strictly lost a little sparkle tonight! Your performances were the ones we looked forward to each week. The pure joy in your face in each dance was magical. You’ll truly be missed. Reply Jo Barclay says: November 15, 2015 at 8:31 pm Oh Jeremy I’m so sad that you’ve gone. I love your radio show and was so excited when you signed up for Strictly and I wasn’t disappointed. Watching your journey with Karen each week has been a joy. Reading your blog and watching your videos have shown the determination you’ve had to improve. You’ve been an inspiration and your daughters must be so proud of you. Keeeep dancing xx Reply Elaine says: November 15, 2015 at 8:31 pm Jeremy You were a pleasure to watch every week. A true professional and gentleman xx Reply Andrea Smith says: November 15, 2015 at 8:31 pm Loved, loved, loved you on Strictly.

You have such a wonderful, positive and genuine attitude to the show and this really shone through. You’ll really be missed in our household. xxx Reply Angela says: November 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm As a stay at home mother who left my career to raise my three fabulous kids your Radio 2 show has always (more often than not!) kept my sanity. I was shocked at first when I heard you were to star in Strictly but watched you each week with admiration and support. You are a lovely man and such an inspiration to watch and to listen to. Bad luck on the result tonight but your strength of character has been both inspiring and wonderful to watch over the last couple of weeks. Well done. Reply Richard says: November 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm Top top effort Jeremy, Strictly will most certainly miss you, as will I, my Wife and my eldest daughter, you brought a certain, well, not sure what I’d call it, a certain feel good factor and you were very entertaining. It was also very refreshing to see the man behind the voice we listen to everyday carry himself so well. Absolute Gentleman fella. Well done Reply Lynda Downes says: November 15, 2015 at 8:34 pm You have been such a gentleman it’s been great watching you each week well done and please keep dancing thank you Reply Ruth Parker says: November 15, 2015 at 8:34 pm A huge “WELL DONE!” from my family Jeremy.

I am a hoop dance coach and help people connect with their inner dancer (with a hoop!). I thought you were quite majestic, delightful and your smile lit the room. I will miss you so much. Please keep dancing!

X Reply Lynn Fitzpatrick says: November 15, 2015 at 8:35 pm So sad to see you go! You were a gentleman and I loved your enthusiasm every week.

Reply Angela Johnson says: November 15, 2015 at 8:35 pm Love you Jeremy! Want you at Blackpool!! Voted so many times for you. You have been beyond a joy to watch every week and to say that you will be missed from SCD would be the biggest understatement in the universe. Would love to see your Paso at Blackpool sir! Reply Wendy says: November 15, 2015 at 8:35 pm Gutted you’re gone, voted for you every week (along with Jay), and so sad you will not be in Blackpool. I wanted to see ‘mysterious girl’ in the final! Maybe they will make a slot for you (fingers crossed). Will continue to follow you on Twitter and listen on R2, and look forward to you’re other exploit’s xxx Reply Andrea says: November 15, 2015 at 8:36 pm Jeremy, your attitude has been an inspiration. You are a true gentleman and every week you entertained and brought a smile to everyone’s face. The way you handled your exit with grace and charm, paying tribute to Karen, was very moving. I’m so sad you didn’t get to Blackpool, you deserved it with all the effort you put in and how hard you worked. One thing for sure though, your daughters will be very very proud of you. Thank you for making us all feel part of your “journey”… Keep dancing X Reply Tracey Clerc says: November 15, 2015 at 8:36 pm Sooooo sad to see you go Jeremy.

Your family must be so proud of you and it is an experience that will stay with you forever, looking forward to hearing about it on the radio show tomorrow. X Reply Gemma says: November 15, 2015 at 8:39 pm Jeremy, I feared I would like you less once I’d seen you dancing. How wrong I was! You are a true gentleman, an absolute joy. I shed a tear when you were voted off, and I’ve shed a tear watching your vlog. Thank you for making this my favourite Strictly series ever! ❤️ Reply Katrina says: November 15, 2015 at 8:40 pm Jeremy you epitomised what Strictly is about for me, a complete beginner who really wanted to learn to dance and enjoyed every minute of it, the joy could be seen every week. On top of that you are a gentleman, your family are very lucky to have you as a role model. I very much wished you had a few more weeks on Strictly as you brought such joy to so many people as you can see from all these comments, all the best to you and not forgetting Karen who was also amazing.

You put so much into each performance and you could see how much you enjoyed the whole experience. Well done to you and Karen for all the great routines.

I am sorry to see you go and for you not get the opportunity to do your paso doble to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” which would have seen you being suspended in the air with a guitar! Great speech! Reply Helen says: November 15, 2015 at 8:55 pm Strictly just won’t be the same without you Jeremy! I listen to your radio show and it has been so lovely to see your ‘other’ fun side. You will be missed in Blackpool! Reply Florence says: November 15, 2015 at 8:55 pm Jeremy, you have honestly been the highlight of Strictly 2015. There are not many celebrities with whom you truly feel like you experienced their Strictly journey with them, but with your posts on social media and videos of you rehearsing in the Radio 2 studio it feels like we have been with you every step of the way. It has been truly inspiring to see your progress, and your enthusiasm and drive has clearly left an impression on so many people, as has the kind nature you continuously convey. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, and for being an inspiration to be a better person. P.S. A signed photo would be absolutely brilliant if you’ve started doing those! xxx Reply Joyce says: November 15, 2015 at 8:55 pm Like others here, so sorry to see you leave this weekend. You had every right to get this far, in my opinion! I was so hoping you would get to Blackpool, with or without your donkey! You’ll be missed by your many supporters next week, as you brought something special to the show. I also enjoyed your weekly article in RT. Thanks, Jeremy. All the Very Best, Joyce.x Reply Beverley Moore says: November 15, 2015 at 8:55 pm So sorry to see you go Jeremy. Would have been lovely to see you at Blackpool. I think Karen is lovely but I dId not think the shower cap, the horse and then the cart did you both justice! Would love to have seen you do something a little more romantic in white tie and tails and she in a beautiful dress. Just my personal thoughts. But very well done!! You are a true gentleman! It’s so sad. X Reply Terhi says: November 15, 2015 at 8:56 pm So sorry to see you go Jeremy. Enjoyed seeing you dance so much every week and you are such a lovely person. Was really looking forward to seeing you dance at Blackpool – the concept sounded great – and what will happen to the donkey now? Reply Jenny Louise says: November 15, 2015 at 8:56 pm Jeremy, you have been de-Vine to watch. I voted for you every week without fail and enjoyed your performances so much. You brought so much fun to the show and I honestly teared up when you left (sad admission). I’m so glad you posted the above video about how much fun you’ve had with Karen. I hope that you signed off from Strictly on Saturday evening and immediately hopped in a plane on your way to the jungle so that we can watch your glorious self some more (long shot). You are a true gentleman and I will be listening to your radio 2 show to get my Jezza fix. -Jenny Louise Reply Deborah says: November 15, 2015 at 8:59 pm Jeremy you were and are just fabulous both on the dance floor and as a person. I voted for you every week as the amount of effort and enthusiasm you and Karen put into every performance was superb. I was really upset you went out tonight. You’ll be missed. Xxxxx Reply Jane Wright says: November 15, 2015 at 9:01 pm Jeremy loved every moment of your journey, you are a real gentleman and I look forward to listening to you tomorrow. Reply Gill says: November 15, 2015 at 9:02 pm Determination, tons of effort, loads of improvement and at the end, charming and gracious in defeat. A true example to all of us that as long as you do your best, it really doesn’t matter if you don’t win…and that being a good sport is far more important than being good at whatever you are doing. Thank you for brightening up my weekends. I hope you and Karen continue to keep in touch long after the series ends….and maybe from time to time you and she, Kevin and your wife can go out tea dancing in a foursome! Have fun. Reply Christine says: November 15, 2015 at 9:02 pm Loved every second, voted for you each week. You are entertaining and genuine. You’ll be missed. Reply Tania Godwin-evans says: November 15, 2015 at 9:02 pm Oooh Jeremy you said you had no right to be at week 8 but you had just as much right to be there as some other dancers. I love listening to you on Radio 2 and seeing you on Eggheads. I now love you even more having participated in SCD. You were a joy to watch and your enthusiasm and love each week definitely came through. Its a shame you didn’t make Blackpool. It would be nice to know whether you plan on keeping this up even if it is more on a social dancing side. Will miss you fr the rest of the series J. You are a truly marvelous gentleman. Reply Joanna Cartwright says: November 15, 2015 at 9:02 pm So sorry Jeremy x you are a true gentleman We loved watching you and you improved every week and your effort you put into each dance was outstanding you will be missed xx Reply Clare Cooke says: November 15, 2015 at 9:03 pm Dear Jeremy, our family are so very sad that your Strictly journey ended tonight! We have enjoyed watching you every week and, most importantly, improving in the art of dance! You look like you had a ball and your genuine sense of fun and enjoyment shone through. You remained upbeat even with the most ghastly comments from the judges (although I have to say the stalk/lightning comment was ridiculously funny). Great show and glad you had the nerve to have a go, as we all got to see a real gent perform on Strictly. Hope you keeeeeeeep dancing. Reply Jackie Speight says: November 15, 2015 at 9:03 pm Jeremy – you had EVERY right to be here at week 8. I’m just gutted you won’t be at Blackpool, the show would’ve been just that little bit more lovely with you in it. You are what SCD is all about for me and many other fans. Not only that, but you’ve shared so much of yourself in your social media posts, blogs etc – and in doing so you’ve made a huge impact, far beyond anything you’d expect from an entertainment show. Thank you! Reply Ruth Bilbe says: November 15, 2015 at 9:04 pm Jeremy, the world is a richer place with your joy, enthusiasm and zest in it. I have always been a great fan of yours, but my support of you and your philosophies on life has quadrupled. I have loved your dances and your outlook on life and it’s challenges and am not sure strictly holds much for me now. Thank you for the joy and delight we have shared with you. Kind regards x Reply David Moss says: November 15, 2015 at 9:13 pm So sorry to see you go, had hoped you would make it to Blackpool. You gave your all, remained happy and gentlemanly and so gracious in defeat that I hope others learn from. An inspiration to all. Reply Luise says: November 15, 2015 at 9:15 pm Och Jeremy, there were tears in my eyes tonight. I didn’t want your Strictly journey to end when you so clearly loved everything about it. You have been inspirational. Of course we all know you from the Radio and your TV work but Strictly showed us Jeremy ‘The Man’ – and what a genuinely lovely man you are. Thank you for being you. Lx Reply Pam Copeland says: November 15, 2015 at 9:17 pm My deaest Jeremy, I have so enjoyed watching you on a Saturday night,it just won’t be the same Without you and Karen,it was so apparent the hard work and dedication you put in to each performance, your family must be so proud of you.

You weren’t the best dancer but you gave it your all with a smile. You have shown what trying can do. A lesson to all who think about giving up. Thank you Reply Gillian Wilson says: November 15, 2015 at 9:21 pm Im not really a strictly fan, but I’m a Jeremy Vine fan. Every week we’ve watched you & Karen, loved to see how much you enjoyed it and how much effort you put in every week, it won’t be the same without you 🙁 x Reply Niba says: November 15, 2015 at 9:22 pm Always have been a big fan of the Jeremy Vine show and egg heads so was looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor.Your hard work and dedication has been so inspirational and the message you have send across to lot of youngsters is “never to give up and give your best”.I have a 14year old boy who has been inspired by your determination and commitment so first of all a big thank you for that.What a true gentleman you have been!! Strictly won’t be the same without your smiling face and we will all miss you on Saturday night,keep dancing. Reply Karen Biddle says: November 15, 2015 at 9:24 pm Jeremy what a lovely, Kind, gentleman you are, you and karen danced so well together, you are my favourites xx Reply Pam says: November 15, 2015 at 9:26 pm Sorry to see you go Jeremy. We have enjoyed your weekly journey into the world of dance. See you on Eggheads! Reply Julie Russell says: November 15, 2015 at 9:27 pm So disappointed you’re not going to Blackpool after I had my phone on re-dial voting for you! You really brightened the programe up and it definitely won’t be the same without you 🙁 Reply Joan Thomas says: November 15, 2015 at 9:28 pm My all time favourite Strictly series because of you and Karen. What joy you have both brought to the viewers each week. Jeremy always listen to your radio show and knew as soon as the public got to know who you are they would love you! So glad you have enjoyed your time on Strictly and most importantly, think of the amazing new friends you have made. Friends for life – what more could you ask for!! X Reply Sarah says: November 15, 2015 at 9:31 pm You are an honour and a gentleman and an example to us all about how to handle yourself and the challenges life throws at you. No longer a dad-dancer, you will forever now be a ‘Strictly’ dancer: an acolade throughly deserved after all your hard work! Enjoy the rest but keep basking in your undeniable glory!! Reply Karen Shepherd says: November 15, 2015 at 9:33 pm Can’t quite believe you leaving Strictly left me with tears rolling down my face. You gave us all a real lesson in doing your very best, not winning, is what really matters. Your family, and most especially, your daughters must be super proud of you xxx Reply Maureen says: November 15, 2015 at 9:34 pm We loved you every week Jeremy. Your daughters will be so proud of you. X Reply Nicola says: November 15, 2015 at 9:42 pm Jeremy, you earned your right to be there to week 8. You epitomise what Strictly is about. Every week you lit up our screens with your performance, the pleasure you were getting from it just emanating from you. You never failed to entertain and gave it your absolute best. Be proud, you did Karen proud; you are an inspiration, kind and generous, and Kev33awesome and I are very glad we got to share in your journey with you. You earned the respect of everyone there, that was evident with the standing ovation you received all around tonight. We will all miss you and Karen, and Strictly will be forever missing something special without you for the rest of the series. Keep dancing. HippieNic 🙂 x Reply E Thorpe says: November 15, 2015 at 9:49 pm Jeremy, you have truly been an inspiration to all. Entertaining, personable, hardworking and such a huble gentleman. You have deserved your place each week because of your dedication and ability to deal with The Judges with good grace and a smile! I feel so sad you will not be at Blackpool, it just won’t be the same from now on… Well done, you have provided the British public with a new role model. It’s the taking part that counts…. What a guy. Reply June Duncan says: November 15, 2015 at 9:50 pm Jeremy so sorry you have gone. You and Karen were a delight. On the plus side it was lovely getting to know you. You have done yourself no harm by doing Strictly, Mr Vine. I’m sure your fanbase has increased dramatically. Love you Jezza!! Reply Michael Jepson says: November 15, 2015 at 9:52 pm Afraid I was not a supporter, I just cast my 3 votes each week based on the performances that please me most. Boring old fart eh! However, I have so admired your obvious commitment to be the best you can be & courage to present that to the viewing public. You have entertained & had the bonus of dancing with one half of the very special Clifton duo. Thank you. Future elections will never be the same. Reply Julie says: November 15, 2015 at 10:00 pm Ahh Jeremy and Karen, I’m so sad that you didn’t make it to Blackpool ☹️ How lovely of you to make this video and can I say you had ‘every right’ to make it through to this week! Fantastic entertainment and along with that a true gentleman . You should be very proud of yourself! Thanks for making Strictly even more fabulous this year Xxx Reply Deb Roberts says: November 15, 2015 at 10:00 pm You are an inspiration and have been a joy to watch! Your perseverance and ‘never give up’ attitude despite not being the best were a great lesson in life. I will miss you on the dance floor – there are some truly talented dancers left in but yours was the performance I looked forward to the most. Thanks Jezza – you are a lovely person! Reply Joanne Brownridge says: November 15, 2015 at 10:01 pm Sorry to see you go, would have loved to have seen you at Blackpool. You were a delight to watch. A true gentleman too. Reply Daniel says: November 15, 2015 at 10:05 pm What an inspiration you are, Jeremy! I’ll be honest I never watch Eggheads, never listen to your show on Radio 2, never even liked Strictly that much until I saw that first dance of yours and you brought the house down with your infectious personality and tremendous energy! I’ve been hooked ever since and seen your Charleston and ‘thriller’ Salsa numerous times over! Its been a joy to watch you, your daughters will be very proud of their dad! Get in!!!! Reply Grace Tompkins says: November 15, 2015 at 10:05 pm I have loved the enthusiasm you have shown every week and your outright enjoyment of this wonderful experience. You have been a true example that it is always worth making an effort for something you love doing. You will be very much missed. Thank you for taking us all on your “journey”. Reply Jane says: November 15, 2015 at 10:05 pm If it was all about how much someone improves from where they started, you would be the winner Jeremy. Thank you for the joy and your participation was what it should all be about…the sheer joy. Well done x Reply Jordan Sharpe says: November 15, 2015 at 10:08 pm I am so sorry that you have left this week, we will miss watching you dance so much! You had every right to be in week 8, because you epitomised everything that Strictly is supposed to be – you were always so enthusiastic and humble, and seemed to enjoy just being in the competition more than anything else, which is why we all voted to keep you in. Thank you for keeping us entertained! Keeeep Dancing! X Reply Kath Kitchen says: November 15, 2015 at 10:12 pm You have had a great time and it has shown in your dance’s. Watching you has been enjoyable,I think that you will remember it for a very long time. I listen to you every day and hope you will have all the contestants on your show at some time in the feature. Well done. Reply Barbara Barker says: November 15, 2015 at 10:13 pm Jeremy we will miss you on Strictly, you did brilliantly & a lot of your Radio 2 listeners like myself were treated to seeing you instead of just hearing your voice are very proud of you. You are a gentleman I’m sure your family are proud. Well done Jeremy. X Reply Hayley says: November 15, 2015 at 10:24 pm You have been a revelation. I did not realise how funny you are and what a nice person – very attractive. I think you have gained lots of new fans and it would be good to see more of you. I am so sorry you left strictly you deserved to be there until the final x Reply Una Milne says: November 15, 2015 at 10:27 pm We have loved every minute, Jeremy – so sad it has ended. Strictly won’t be the same without you, you made this year so special. We’ll miss you sooo much xxx Reply Mel Howes says: November 15, 2015 at 10:27 pm Well done, your girls will be so proud of everything you have done and your constant determination to improve. A great example to all to keep going and not give up even if you aren’t ‘the best’ as it is all about being ‘your best’. I think a certain Mr Howes may use your example in an assembly soon. Reply Joanne Mead says: November 15, 2015 at 10:32 pm You have embodied the spirit of Strictly for me. You’re obvious pleasure at taking part each week has been a joy, and your gracious acceptance of the judges’ criticism a masterclass in humility. Bravo, Mr Vine, you’ll be very much missed. Reply Hayley says: November 15, 2015 at 10:34 pm I’ve been an avid fan of Strictly from the very beginning, but watching you go this evening was the first time I’ve felt really sad about anyone leaving the show. Thankyou, for your enthusiasm, your dedication and your complete inability to dance which has brightened our Saturday nights for the past 8 weeks. We have found you charming and utterly delightful to watch. We wish you all the best with your next adventure x Reply Jools Vine says: November 15, 2015 at 10:34 pm From one Vine to another – wow, we all thought you were fab. I listen to you on the radio most days and was thrilled to hear you were going to be doing Strictly and you did not disappoint. It was lovely to see you try so hard and show everyone that it’s important to try even if you know you can’t win. What a role model and a good example to follow. We loved watching you dance and Strictly won’t be the same without you. You come across as such a lovely man. Well done Jeremy!

Reply Brenda Heyhoe says: November 15, 2015 at 11:42 pm Well done Jeremy and thank you so much for teaching your daughters the good values of doing your best and working hard. Your wife and daughters should be very proud of you. If you can, keep dancing; it’s good exercise and a healthy pastime which, perhaps you can now share with your wife and daughters. We’ll keep watching you on Eggheads and listening on Radio 2. Best wishes to a true gentleman. Reply Jonathan Nash says: November 16, 2015 at 12:02 am Jeremy, you totally earned your right to stay in till week 8. It’s so much more than who is the best dancer and I think people appreciate that and its what makes people vote for who they want to see again. I, like so many others would of liked another week at least, but hey, wasn’t to be. Well done mate. Reply Victoria donaldson says: November 16, 2015 at 12:58 am Congratulations jeremy on your strictly success. You’ve been a joy to watch and I’m truly gutted to not see you dance again. To me you embodied so much of what strictly is really about and I loved to see your joy and enthusiasm spilling out on to the floor every week. You weren’t the best dancer but you loved ever minute of your strictly experience and that shone through your performances.I loved your waltz to ‘she’. You will be sorely missed from the tower ballroom. Xx Reply Paula winters says: November 16, 2015 at 1:12 am Jeremy you DID deserve to still be in on week eight because you were so entertaining! There are now too many celebrities who are almost professional dancers themselves so it isn’t an even playing field to begin with. It is supposed to be an entertainment show more than a true dancing competition and for me you were one of the most entertaining. A joy to watch every week and you will be missed by thousands! Reply Judith & Grahame says: November 16, 2015 at 4:55 am Living overseas we have not always managed to follow your dance routines but have followed your progress with keen interest. Sorry to hear the news, but we wish you well and no matter where we are we love your programme and listen avidly from Cyprus in the summer and Barbados in the winter. God bless and well done, we have learnt so much from you….XXX Reply Helen Turier says: November 16, 2015 at 6:32 am Loved watching you dance each week.

As a result we fell in love with you. Your family will love you even more for it! Thank you for entertaining us. X Reply Lucy says: November 16, 2015 at 9:31 am Voted for you, Jeremy every week. You deserved a place on that Blackpool bus – I warmed to your commitment. warmth, enthusiasm for learning a new skill and sheer joy at dancing. Can you go to Blackpool as a special correspondent? You are certainly a positive role model for your children. And others I suspect – including me. Reply PollyT says: November 16, 2015 at 9:56 am Jeremy you were a joy to watch and you obviously worked very hard to learn the dances and took the show seriously. Your popularity among fellow contestants was so evident – I thought Jay was going to cry when he hugged you so firmly before the dance-off and it showed how highly he regards you. The best of luck in all you do and I continue to enjoy you on Eggheads Reply Fiona says: November 16, 2015 at 10:35 am Well done jeremy! We all just loved you because u enjoyed it so much. Well done to you and karen! Xxxx Reply Helen May says: November 16, 2015 at 11:18 am Jeremy you were wonderful and you can be so proud of all of your efforts. Will miss you on Strictly. Reply Patricia Lee says: November 16, 2015 at 1:06 pm So sad you have left my interest in Strictly has diminished somewhat. I didn’t expect you to win but was hoping you would get to Blackpool as you deserved to after all that hard work. Will miss you Jeremy but will carry on listening to you on Radio2 Reply Marie says: November 16, 2015 at 1:15 pm Jeremy – you had every right to still be in at 8 weeks. You’ve been an amazing contestant, so wonderfully entertaining and a role model for everyone. You won people’s praise and support because of your genuine warmth and personality. You may not be a natural dancer but you really earned your stripes with the work you put in. We’re only sorry we’ll not get to see you performing to Bohemian Rapsody – what a treat that would have been!! You’ve been amazing and we’ve loved every minute x Reply Kate says: November 16, 2015 at 1:18 pm Congratulations Jeremy for being such a joy to watch on Strictly. I’ve watched strictly for years and can’t remember anyone who’s enjoyed it so much. I think you were very lucky with your partner, Karen does appear to have the ability to bring out the best in her partners, as one happy hairy biker will testify to. Thank you for all the pleasure you have given to the vast majority of strictly viewers. Reply Kenny Grant says: November 16, 2015 at 1:29 pm Sorry to see you leave Strictly this weekend. Blackpool or the rest of the series won’t be the same without you. Well done on your achievement !! Reply Diane says: November 16, 2015 at 3:46 pm You are a gentleman. You are a professional. What a wonderful life experience you’ve just had. And I’ve enjoyed watching that. Reply Elaine says: November 16, 2015 at 4:02 pm What a lovely message to leave Jeremy, it has been a delight watching you dance. You are a real gentleman x Reply Karenann says: November 16, 2015 at 7:14 pm Totally agree Reply Adam says: November 16, 2015 at 6:49 pm Watching your Strictly experience makes me want to become famous so I could have a chance of something similar. Reply Karenann says: November 16, 2015 at 7:07 pm Jeremy you have really cheered up my Saturday nights, a great partnership with Karen Clifton and you really brought such joy to the dance floor. You took your feedback so graciously and your daughters must be justifiably proud of their amazing Dad! Well done and thank you! Reply Maria says: November 16, 2015 at 7:52 pm Jeremy, you had the perfect balance of hard work, enjoyment, not taking yourself too seriously and were always so gracious while listening to the judges. Your dancing was coming along well too will miss you on Saturday nights Reply Ashleigh says: November 16, 2015 at 8:45 pm My son was your biggest fan! He has watched and cheered for you every week and shouted at the judges whenever they made negative comments. He cried yesterday when you went out. Reply Jane says: November 16, 2015 at 11:29 pm It has been a real pleasure to watch you on Strictly Jeremy. So sorry you won’t be in Blackpool. You are a star & a gentleman. Shall really miss you. I love your radio 2 show too. Reply Ruth says: November 17, 2015 at 12:57 pm Having been a Strictly fan from the start of series 1 I can honestly say there have been only a couple of other pairings I have enjoyed watching dance as much as you and Karen. Thank you both for keeping the joy of the show alive. Well done to you both. Reply Dele says: November 17, 2015 at 7:15 pm Hi Jeremy, I’ve watched strictly for years and have always had a soft spot for the comedy/fun dancers. But you took it to another level. You are a gentleman who took to the dance with an equal ammounts of fun, charm, grace and passion. You and Karen were a great parnership and I have no doubt that if you had made to the final you would of turned out a fantastic dance. Your daughters must be very proud of you as we the British public are. ps my friends and I now have a crush on you #Class Reply Moira Russell says: November 18, 2015 at 8:55 am Going to miss you so much in Strictly. Good improvement over the weeks. You provided great entertainment, such a shame that you missed out on Blackpool. I was hoping that if you were voted out that you would at least have had your last week there. You and Karen were such a great team and very enjoyable to watch on and off the dance floor. Loved you on ‘It takes two’ My very best wishes to you both x Reply Karin says: November 19, 2015 at 9:07 pm Strictly will be a lot less exciting now you’ve gone Jeremy. you and Karen were quite a team! Really enjoyed watching you. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
