He was hailed by many (including us) as the new John Sergeant, surviving week after week with performances that ranged from comical to crap. It seemed the Great British Public had decided that they wanted more than smooth sequin-suited performances they wanted to be entertained and Todd was the man to entertain them.
Or so we thought, as shock mingled with horror we find this evening that Todd Carty is in the bottom two after the judges scores and the public vote have been added up. He faced the partnership of Rugby legend Ellery Hanley and Frankie Poultney in the dreaded skate-off where only the Judges scores count.
For the Judges who had waited for ages to get rid of Todd, this was all their Christmases coming at once (with the bizarre exception of Ruthie Henshall) as four of five voted Todd off.
Todd thanks for the memory, big up to Susie Lipanova for bravely putting up with Todd. Adieu Tucker!
And if you've forgotten why we love Todd, here is why!
