Kevin Clifton was overheard bemoaning his fortune after a humiliating second week exit from Strictly Come Dancing .

The 36-year-old was the reigning professional champion after winning the Glitterb所有 Trophy with 英国广播公司 documentary maker Stacey Dooley, last year.

This time though, he has found it tough going after being paired with 61-year-old 电视 legend, 安妮卡米.

Before the series started, Kevin had predicted that he might struggle to get Anneka up to the level required to compete in the 英国广播公司 dance competition.

This proved to be the case as Anneka's Charleston failed to capture the imagination of either the judges or the viewers at home.

The dancer, 36, and his partner 安妮卡米, 61, failed to impress judges when they come up against David James and his partner Nadiya 通过chkova in the dance-off

The routine only managed to reap 11 points out of a possible 40 and judge Bruno Tonioli said Anneka had "slaughtered" the Kill Bill themed routine.

A show insider told The Sun: "Kevin adores Anneka as a person but professionally he knew his chances of making another final were over, especi所有y as she’s struggled with injury and fitness.

“Going out in the second week was humiliating for him. In his eyes he’s ‘King Kev’ – and he’s done phenomenal routines with his previous partners."

All is not lost for Kevin though as he apparently has "a friend for life in Anneka and he loved working with her."

Kevin will not bow out of Strictly completely though as he will now participate in group dances and the pros’ performances.
