However, despite his loss, Aston has taken to Instagram to say that while he was "gutted" he had left the show, he wished his fellow co-stars the best.

In the long statement posted alongside their Salsa to Despacito, he wrote: "Ok so lemme do this properly!! @bbcstrictly thank you so much for letting me be apart of such a great year I've made some amazing new homies!!

"Class of 17 you are all f***ing brilliant can't wait for our catch up night out.. good luck to you all!!"

Aston's elimination comes with one silver lining after revealing that he was prepared to leave the dancefloor mid-song if his girlfriend went into early labour.

Speaking to the Mirror, he said: “If I got to the final it would be amazing, it would be great, but what if suddenly her waters broke?”
