Strictly Come Dancing couple Charles Venn and Karen Clifton broke down in tears on tonight’s It Takes Two.
The emotional pair, who became the tenth couple to exit this competition, were balling their eyes out after revealing their devastation at being sent home.
Luckily, presenter Zoe Ball had a lot of tissues on hand after a montage of their time on the show set them off.
Defiant Karen shouted: "We’re not leaving. Why do you do that to me?"
After wiping away the tears, Charles said: "It feels unreal. It doesn’t feel like that’s me – honestly. According to my kids I really couldn’t dance. They eat humble pie now for sure."
The pair were given the boot after losing out to Ashley Roberts and her professional partner Pasha Kovalev.
Charles managed to get through three dance offs but was finally beaten at the fourth time of asking.
The EastEnders and Casualty actor admitted that "instinctively" he knew that they would have to dance again for the judges.

On losing out, he said: "Obviously sad. A little bit of disappointment but at the same time a sense of pride. Proud Karen brought me all the way to the quarter finals.
"It’s a weird, bittersweet feeling. On one hand I get to take my son to school in morning. At the same time I don’t get to spend quality time with this wonderful woman, this wonderful teacher. It’s a weird balance."
Karen joked that she would still be shouting at Charles to "straighten his back" even though they aren’t in the competition.
"Apparently I’m very demanding," she sarcastically added.
On Charles, she said: "I couldn’t be more proud because of everything you achieved on this show. I will be forever grateful for you being magnificent."
Charles was then awarded with a "best male rhumba" badge for his impressive score.
*It Takes Two airs weeknights on BBC2 at 6.30pm
