Despite bad scores from the judges every week, John's been saved by the public vote every time. But, it seems he thinks he should step aside.
Today, John said: 'the trouble is that there is now a real danger that I might win the competition. Even for me that would be a joke too far.'
John was criticised by judges every week for not being any good (in fact they were pretty mean to him, Arlene actually branded him 'lazy' last week, which we reckon's a bit OTT seeing as he's lost a whopping 2 stones on the show!).
Although we think it's a shame he's gone, it seems goodtoknow users wanted him out of the contest too. In our poll, 60% of you said you liked him but thought it was time for him to go.
For old times' sake we thought you'd like to watch one of our favourite performances of John's. It's his Waltz from week one, where the judges were actually impressed by his fancy footwork. So long John!
