It was inevitable.
She was the second worst dancer as far as the judges were concerned and she was less popular with the public than Ed Balls. That must have been a shocker for her as she's practically a household name.
But if you're not much good at dancing, then to survive on Strictly in the early weeks you need a warm personality, she ain't got one
She wasn't as good as Anastasia in the dance-off.
I don't watch the programme she presents, it might be on when I'm searching for the news headlines on the red button, but for me she just goes through the motions, i.e. can read the auto-cue and follow the director's instructions, no warmth.
Compare her to Carol Kirkwood a previous contestant, whose job is just to present the weather forecast, who comes across as much more "viewer friendly."

There's a big difference between being a household name and being liked. Tony Blair was a household name! She does often come across as arrogant on Breakfast, in fact there was one occasion when she asked a question (thankfully of one of the reporters) and Charlie said that the reporter had just explained that. Her response "Oh, I wasn't listening" and a dismissive wave of the hand!
Carol Kirkwood she ain't.
