Nikita Kuzmin in tears as he shares 'disappointment' over Strictly results


Continuing, the Ukrainian dancer paid a touching tribute to the 27-year-old athlete, stating: "[Ellie] has taught me so so much, so much empathy, just so much - I’ve learned so much in these seven weeks.

"I really wanted to go with you to Blackpool, I think we should go there for the rides?

"I love you, Els, I just want to tell you every single person in this room loves you.

"That is just to say how much of a beautiful human you are, you spend time to go to each person inside this room, you care about everybody, you are just such a wonderful human and I am so glad I’ve had the chance to dance with you."
