Daniel O'Donnell Sent Home From Strictly Come Dancing

Between the rugby, X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing – it really wasn't a good day for the Irish.

That’s right, Daniel O’Donnell and his professional dance partner Kristina Rihanoff were voted off the competition on Sunday evening.

The couple, who performed the American Smooth to Fly Me to The Moon on Saturday night, were up against Kirsty Gallacher and Brendan Cole in the dance-off.

Unfortunately for them, the judges voted to save Kirsty and Brendan, bringing an end to their time on the show.

Following the result, Kristina tweeted: “Can’t find words to express my appreciation for your kind words for Daniel & I. So glad I got an opportunity to get to know a great person.”
