The judges were torn between who to save for next week’s final, with Motsi Mabuse choosing to send home Jamie, and Craig Revel-Horwood selecting Ranvir to leave.
Craig said: "Well one of course did an explosive fabulous salsa, the other couple did a dreamy delicious, gorgeous waltz.
"I think both couples couldn’t have danced those dances better than they did tonight, it was incredible and I want to see both of you in the final. I’d like to save Jamie and Karen."
Motsi then added: “Well this was really one tough decision, we had two beautiful dances, two beautiful human beings and I will save Ranvir and Giovanni."
The choice then fell to Shirley Ballas, who explained her reasoning: "This is very difficult because I’ve grown to love both couples.
"I’m getting quite emotional now. Musicality, determination, conviction from both teams, they just gave their all.
"But I just feel that one couple had a little more determination, a little bit more: ‘I’m not leaving without that trophy’ and with that in mind I’m saving Jamie and Karen."
Fans took to Twitter to share their outrage that Ranvir was voted off the show despite Jamie Laing having been in four dance offs, which is the most in the show's history.
One wrote: "I'm sorry but Jamie gets saved after God knows how many dance offs… and Ranvir goes home after her first time there? Wrong decision!!!"
Another added: "Nah not here for that result, he's been in 4 dance offs and Ranvir just the once, I know it's based off the dance off alone but it just feels unfair."

A third commented: "Absolutely ridiculous that Jamie has been saved so many times in the dance off when he just isn’t that good."
Ranvir and Giovanni have been at the centre of romance rumours during the contest, especially after he was heard calling her “baby” on the dance floor.
After the decision was made Ranvir said to host Tess Daly: "I’m just really sorry for him [Giovanni], he’s worked so hard and been in so many finals that I’m really sorry I couldn’t do it for you. Sorry.

"We’ve had some really fantastic memorable moments and I know I couldn’t have got this far without you."
Giovanni replied: "You don’t have to be sorry at all, we’ve both worked very hard, you’ve been an absolute dream to work with.
"You are a true hero, your job at 3 o'clock in the morning then you come in the room and dance with me. More than anything you’ve grown as a person and this for me is the most rewarding thing that I could ask for, so well done to you."
