Strictly Come Dancing Love Week Results (week 3)
Vanessa Feltz is the second celebrity to depart the dance floor in Strictly Come Dancing 2013
Things got romantic this week as Love became the focus on the Strictly dance floor during the first show-stopping themed weekend of the series. Love was in the air as hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly invited the fourteen remaining couples to show their softer side and to dance their most amorous steps ahead of the second vote off.
Fashion designer Julien Macdonald and his partner Janette Manrara; and Radio 2 DJ Vanessa Feltz and professional partner James Jordan became the second two couples to face the dance-off.

Bruno Tonioli & Craig Revel Horwood – in the studio.
The judges’ scores were combined with the results of the viewers’ votes to decide the lowest scoring two couples facing the dance off.
