Brian Conley joked that he had bought his bald Strictly rival Simon Rimmer a hairdryer for Christmas after he beat him on the dancefloor.

The comedian was eliminated from the BBC contest on Sunday night after a dance-off against Sunday Brunch star Rimmer.

Speaking on spin-off show It Takes Two, Conley insisted he had “no animosity towards Simon”.

“I even got him a Christmas present,” he told host Zoe Ball.

“I bought him a hairdryer. I’ve kept the receipt…”

Conley said he had enjoyed his twirl on the dancefloor and was grateful to the support he had received from fans, admitting he hoped he had not let anyone down.

He said he would still be watching as the rest of the contestants waltz their way through the competition.

“I shall be in a yacht just off the coast of Barbados, but I’ll be keeping an eye on you!” he warned.
