As we welcome the return of Strictly, it sadly means we have to say goodbye to one of our favourite couples every week. 

The BBC's beloved dancing contest brought back a little glitz and glamour to our Saturday nights when it returned for its 20th series a few weeks ago. 

As the competition heats up, we sadly have to say goodbye to some Strictly stars. 

Find out who has left the ballroom so far and look back on some of their best bits.

Who has left Strictly 2022 so far? 

Kaye Adams and Kai Widdrington

Loose Women star and journalist Kaye Adams and her partner Kai Widdrington were booted off the programme in week two.

No one left the contest after week one with the scores being carried over to the second week like normal.

The couple danced the Charleston to Music! Music! Music! By Dorothy Provine and scored a total of 43 points across the first two weeks.

Richie Anderson and Giovanni Pernice

Richie Anderson and Giovanni Pernice - the second all-male pairing in the show's history - were eliminated in week three.

The pair performed a samba to the beloved song Hakuna Matata from The Lion King as part of Movie Week.

Anderson and Pernice had dressed up as the meerkat Timon and warthog Pumbaa for the routine.

However, it did not impress the public earning them a score of 27/40 and a place in the dance-off against former X Factor contestant Fleur East.
