The producers of the SABC2 programme Strictly Come Dancing have confirmed that an electronic calculation error occurred during last week's show - and it resulted in the wrong couple, Garth Collins and Hayley Bennett, being booted out of the contest.

This is the first time in the show's history that such an error has occurred but the contestants are being forgiving about the blunder.

On Thursday Collins and Bennett were eliminated erroneously against 5FM's Anele Mdoda and partner Brandon Eilers Le Riche in the dreaded dance-off.
