Strictly Come Dancing stars Caroline Flack and Frankie Bridge have said their goodbyes to Judy Murray after she was the seventh celebrity to leave the competition.

During Sunday night's results show, Judy found herself in the bottom two alongside Sunetra Sarker and, following a unanimous vote by the judging panel, the famous tennis mum was the latest celeb to be sent home from Strictly.

Since her exit, Judy's fellow contestants have taken to Twitter to let her know she will be sorely missed.

Tweeting after the result, Frankie said: "So sad to lose @judmoo it's not going to be the same. No more girls are allowed to leave please!"

Caroline, meanwhile, tweeted: "Amazing weekend... sad to see @judmoo leave. But she's ACE and I love her."

The girls' comments come after Judy and her dance partner Anton du Beke were voted out of Strictly last night.

Despite scoring her personal best of 24 the night before, Judy was sent home as the judges opted to save Casualty actress Sunetra and her professional partner Brendan Cole.

However, head judge Len Goodman did say he thought Judy's performance during the dance off was "fantastic".

Although her time on Strictly has come to an end, Judy went out on a high after taking to the floor to perform the Viennese Waltz at Blackpool Tower's famous ballroom.

Never thinking she would make it so far in the competition, following her exit Judy said she and Anton "got lucky".

She added: "Anton's been an incredible teacher, he's been putting up with me for weeks now. I started from scratch and I was absolutely hopeless. I'm still not very good, but I'm better than I was.

"He's treated everything with the utmost sense of humour and he's been great fun to be around. He's made my Strictly experience very very special."

And, making sure to go out in style, Judy then joined Frankie, Pixie Lott and all her other Strictly co-stars for a very well-deserved afterparty.

Next week, the celebs will be back in the Strictly studio as they take to the floor again to dance for survival.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday (22 November) at 7pm on BBC One.
