Jerry Hall was voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' last night (21.10.12).
The model became the second celebrity to leave the ballroom dancing show, after losing in the dance off against former England cricket captain, Michael Vaughan.
The previous day Jerry - who was previously married to The Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger - and her partner Anton du Beke failed to win over the judges with their quickstep routine to Simon and Garfunkel's 'Mrs Robinson', scoring only 18 points, the second lowest of the night.
When it came to choosing who to send home, judges Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell voted to save Michael, leaving only Bruno Tonioli on Jerry's side.
Craig was particularly cutting, saying: "It looked like Anton was dancing with Mr Burns from 'The Simpsons'.
"The last time I saw posture like that was last summer on a praying mantis."
Upon her exit, Jerry, 56, said: "I'm a woman of a certain age and did find the training exhausting, so I am relieved to put my feet up.
"The judges had a very high standard but I did my best and thought my dances looked great - and my body looks so good it has only done good things for me and my career."
Adding praise for her partner, she said: "Anton is a beautiful dancer. I loved watching him dance and loved learning a new hobby. He has such polish, poise and charm. We laughed so much and will remain friends."
