Many Strictly Come Dancing fans were left devastated when Clara Amfo's Jive failed to impress and she was eliminated from the competition.

The Radio 1 DJ and professional dance partner Aljaz Škorjanec were at the bottom of the judges' score board and went up against Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer in the dreaded dance off.

Clara looked heartbroken when she wasn't saved and found out her Strictly journey was over, and she spoke about her final performance on her BBC radio show on Monday.

During her first show back, she also revealed that fans set her a "secret challenge" for the Saturday night show – and she completed it right in front of viewers' eyes.

"So I’m going to choose for me, I’m saving Jamie and Karen."

Speaking to Tess Daly after the results were in, Clara said: "I've had the best time ever, the best time ever and got a new friend for life. I've loved it, its one of the best things I've ever ever done, its been a dream come true."
