Audley Harrison was voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' last night (13.11.11).
The boxer and his professional partner Natalie Lowe found themselves in the bottom two alongside Anita Dobson and Robin Windsor before the 40-year-old athlete was given his marching orders from the BBC One show.
While he admitted he was sad to be leaving, Audley claimed if he hadn't have gone he may have quit the series anyway because he knew how important it was for former 'EastEnders' star Anita to perform at Saturday's (19.11.11) special show at Wembley Arena.
He said: "I wouldn't have been happy to go through ahead of Anita. I might have had to pull out because I know how much she wants to go to it."
On Saturday (12.11.11), Audley failed to impress the judges - Alesha Dixon, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood - with his cha-cha-cha, with head judge Len saying: "The only way you're going to Wembley is on the Jubilee Line."
McFly star Harry Judd and his partner Aliona Vilani topped the leaderboard once again after impressing the judges with their passionate Argentine Tango, earning them 37 out of a possible 40.
Other celebrities set to take part in Saturday's 'Children In Need' special include Chelsee Healy, Russell Grant, Holly Valance and Jason Donovan.
