That was a nod to his pre-series prediction he’d struggle to get the TV veteran up to scratch on the dance floor.

Kevin and Anneka’s routine left the judges poking fun at the Kill Bill- themed dance, which Bruno Tonioli said they’d “slaughtered”, and which earned them just 11 points from a possible 40.

They lost in a dance-off to ex-England goalkeeper David James, 49, and his partner Nadiya Bychkova, 30,

A Strictly insider said: “Kevin adores Anneka as a person but professionally he knew his chances of making another final were over, especially 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.

“He’s got a friend for life in Anneka and he loved working with her. But this series is one he wants to forget.”

Before they crashed out of the competition, former TV presenter Anneka, 61, said she’d found training “murder” and showed off nasty bruising from her training sessions with Kevin, 36.

Kevin will now participate in group dances and the pros’ performances.
