Russell Grant is 'Strictly' fired

Russell Grant's explosive entrance at Wembley Arena hasn't saved him from the chop on Strictly Come Dancing.

The astrologer was fired out of a cannon and into a jive routine on Saturday's special show.

Despite judges admitting it was one of the show's 'best ever entrances', it wasn't enough to save Grant and partner Flavia Cacace.

Heart's Jason Donovan is safely through to the final seven couples after a jive which was set to be perfect until he forget his step in the final few seconds.

The judges awarded Jason 34 out of 40 - leaving him joint third on the leader board behind Chelsee and Alex.
