Strictly's Charles Venn breaks down in tears over shock exit as fans declare he was 'robbed' after losing to Ashley Roberts

The actor was forced to reach for the tissues after host Zoe Ball showed him and his professional dance partner, Karen Clifton, a video of their Strictly best bits.

With tears still glistening on his face, Charles quipped that he was surprised he'd done so well in the BBC One dance show.

He told Zoe: "According to my kids I couldn't dance, they're eating humble pie now for sure."

The actor also admitted that he was proud to have reached the quarter finals, with Karen also shedding a few tears during the emotional chat.

Charles was eliminated during last night's quarter final after landing in the dance-off against former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts.

Despite performing what the judges' called the "best male rumba ever", Charles lost his place in the competition after all four judges voted to save Ashley.

The decision sparked outrage from fans of the show, with this being the second week in a row that Ashley had been in the bottom two.

And watching Charles' exit interview appeared to re-open the wound, with many viewers taking to Twitter to once again slam the judges' decision to send him home.

While some fans shared their outrage, others took to the microblogging site to reveal that Charles' tears had left them emotional too.

One wrote: "#ItTakesTwo is such a sobfest! Sad to say goodbye to @ChuckyVenn".

Another added: "There is no getting past the fact that its truly unfair that Charles has gone and Ashley is still in.

"Charles put so much heart into his performance every week. Ashley doesn’t do that at all. Its sad."

A third tweeted: "I don't think I've ever been so sad to see someone leave strictly! You'll be missed @ChuckyVenn".

Charles previously won praise for his humble exit speech during last night's results show, with the star paying tribute to his dance partner.

He said at the time: "I have to pay extreme homage to this woman here, because Karen Clifton turned me into a promising dancer.

"She has been by my side and supported me, she's been strict, she's been solid, she's been caring and loving, sensitive, intuitive, and I'm adamant that without her I wouldn't have got to this level."

Karen also spoke of Charles with high regard, adding: "Oh Charles, you have been the most humble, the most professional person I've ever worked with.

"Thank you for always respecting me as a woman, as a friend and as a teacher. I will never forget this journey that we had together."
