STRICTLY Come Dancing pro Aljaz Skorjanec broke his silence last night after fans were convinced he was quitting the show.
The 31-year-old took to Instagram to pay tribute to his partner Sara Davies as they lost their place in the competition following a dance off against Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin.
Alongside a picture of him and Dragons' Den star Sara, he wrote: “We have been having so much fun from day 1. It was such a joy to dance with you every single day for the last 10 weeks.
“You transformed yourself every single weekend into a beautiful dancer. A real testament to how working hard towards something, can make dreams come true.
“I LOVED every second of it! Thank you partner! @saradaviescc #haway.”
Earlier in the evening, the dancer had sparked concern he was handing in his resignation as he appeared to suggest he would “miss” working on the show.
He gushed: "I'm going to miss you so much, I'll miss dancing with you. I'm going to miss everything about this show.”
Aljaz has been in the show since 2013 when he won his first series alongside Abbey Clancy.
Over the weekend The Sun On Sunday told howOti Mabuse and Aljaz have both told pals they plan to quit the hit show next year.
The pro dancers will hand in their notices after this series for projects away from the ballroom, sources say.
It comes after his wife Janette Manrara stepped down as a professional to host the spin-off show It Takes Two.
The star was very emotional and was seen wiping away a tear as Sara praised him before their final dance.
Speaking with host Tess Daly after being voted off, she said: "I had no idea any of this was in me.
"It's been a life-changing experience and one I've loved every second of."
She added: "He's one in a million. He knows it, I tell him every day.
"This wouldn't have been the experience it was unless it had been with you."
