Despite the disappointment, Mike spoke out about the positives of being a contestant on the show.
He said in an interview with the BBC: “I have lost a stone and half.
“I’m a guy in his 50s, I’m mentally sharper, I feel able to deal with pressured situations – thanks to the dance offs!”
He said of Katya: “This amazing teacher, Katya, I can’t tell you the dedication that she puts in.

“She’d make the greatest sporting coach ever, she makes you believe that anything is possible.”
Ahead of this, the television star was saved by judges in a dance-off with Catherine Tyldesley and her partner Johannes Radebe.
The BBC regular swiftly found himself at the centre of trolling following the result.
Mike hit back at a particular troll, who urged him not to become a dancer.
He wrote on Twitter: “Thank you for great feedback tonight. I did my best and as from week one I can’t wait for next week.”
The Strictly viewer commented: “You do your best but you’ll never be a dancer, sorry, you should gave gone this week.”
Hitting back, he wrote: “Thanks for this. It’s great everyone has their favourites and I respect opinion but for 12 years I’ve tried to inspire people who think they can’t do sport or are rubbish to try a new sport to get fitter.
“Let’s not tell anyone they can’t or never will be this or that.”
