People are absolutely heartbroken over Greg Rutherford's emotional Strictly exit

The Strictly dream has come to an emotional end for Greg Rutherford as he became the ninth celeb to leave the show.

It was between him and Claudia Fragapane in the dance off – and most viewers were convinced the judges made the wrong pick.

When interviewed by Tess Daly at the end, Greg could barely speak from being so emotional – and the sound of a million hearts breaking across the nation could be heard.

It’s also made quite a lot of people very mad at the general voting public (wouldn’t be the first time this year, eh?) for choosing to keep a certain former shadow chancellor in over everyone’s favourite long jumper.

Bye Greg, you will be missed.
