The Wanted singer and his professional partner Dianne Buswell departed the latin and ballroom show on Sunday night (15.11.20) , after facing Maisie Smith and Gorka Marquez in the dance-off.

Speaking after his exit, he said: "I've loved it. It's all down to Dianne, she's been literally amazing. For me to get through 90 seconds of a dance for four weeks now is a credit to her, she's just unbelievable. I've got to say, all these guys over here are the nicest group of people ever. I love you all!"

Whilst Dianne added: "I think Max has done an absolutely amazing job. He has done four incredible dances and I know how nervous you get, but you've come out here very week. I know you always say you want to do me proud and oh my goodness you've done me more than proud - so well done. I also want to say thank you to the judges, Anton you were incredible tonight. Thank you so much."

Max and Dianne performed their American Smooth to 'It Had To Be You' by Harry Connick Jr. whilst Maisie and Gorka performed their Cha Cha to 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' by Cyndi Lauper.

It was then for the judges to decide who to put through to the next show.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "Both couples were more concentrated and both couples took the notes we had given them and showed improvement. But the couple I'd like to save, Maisie and Gorka."

Whilst Anton Du Beke added: "Well, I have to say it's so close. They were both immaculate through that dance. It literally was just the smallest timing. For me, I'm going to have to save Maisie and Gorka."

And Head Judge Shirley Ballas said she would have chosen to save Max and Dianne.

'Strictly Come Dancing' returns on Saturday November 21.
