The fifth celebrity has been voted off Strictly Come Dancing in Sunday's Results show.

From Scooby Doo Fox Trots to a Stranger Things Argentine Tango, we were on the edge of our seats during the Halloween special - for all the right reasons.

The Results show was full of treats with a spellbinding routine from the Strictly professionals that told the cautionary tale of Icarus and a performance from Japan-born singer Rina Sawayama.

However, it's Halloween which means that the Results show wasn't without its tricks and we had to sadly say goodbye to yet another Strictly star.

Here's how the couples scored during the spooky special, who was in the dance off and which celebrity ended up becoming the fifth contestant to leave Strictly.

Who left Strictly Come Dancing?

EastEnders actor James Bye became the fifth celebrity to leave Strictly.

The 38-year-old proclaimed that he had made a “friend for life” in his dance partner Amy Dowden as he exited the competition.

The soap actor, who has played Martin Fowler in the BBC series since 2014, performed a charleston dressed as a beekeeper to the song Bumble Bee by LaVern Baker.

Despite performing a lift that he had not been able to crack during the dress rehearsal, the couple found themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard after failing to impress the judges. 

The audience booed new judge Anton, who was dubbed “Phantom Du Beke" during the Halloween show, for his negative comments about James “throwing” his partner down from lifts rather than “placing her down”.

Who was in the dance-off on Strictly?

James and Amy found themselves in the dance-off against former X-factor contestant and broadcaster Fleur East.

Fleur, 35, and her professional partner Vito Coppola performed their salsa routine to Beyonce’s Break My Soul as judge Motsi Mabuse praised her power as a woman on the dancefloor.

The singer was unanimously saved by the judges which meant James and Amy had to leave the competition. 

Craig Revel Horwood said it was his “responsibility” as a judge to “save the better dancer”, meanwhile Mabuse said there were “different levels of dancing on the dance floor.”

Du Beke added: “I thought both couples danced better on Saturday night. They didn’t reproduce their best performance, but it doesn’t have to be the best performance, it has to be better and I thought their performance was just good enough.”

James Bye reflects on Strictly experience as Eastenders star exits show

Reflecting on his time on the show, Bye said: “I’ve said this from the very beginning, all I can do is go out there and do my very best.

“I am dancing against Fleur East, I went and did my best but she is phenomenal.

“I’ve had the best time on this show and I have a friend for life (in Amy) all I can do is thank the family, and I have a new family now.

“It’s a competition but you don’t feel like that backstage, you honestly feel like everyone has each other’s backs and everyone is just willing everyone to do their best!”

Strictly pro Amy also praised her partner, saying: “You came on here to show your boys they can throw themselves into any challenge in life, and you are the best role model they could ever have as their daddy.

“I am so proud of you.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday November 5 at 7pm, with the results show on Sunday November 6 at 7:15pm on BBC One.
