Act leader Rodney Hide was forced to hang up his dancing shoes after he dropped his partner and was voted off TV's Dancing With the Stars quarter-final last night.

At the conclusion of the couple's cha cha Hide dropped his partner, Krystal Stuart.

The couple were given one out of 10 by each of the judges, with Brendan Cole saying "it was terrible".

The four out of 40 is the lowest score in the competition's history.

After being given the boot, Hide said he had never had so much fun.

"It's been tremendous. The public love the show and love people giving it a go," he said.

"Krystal has been marvellous teaching me. It's not easy being the best dancer in New Zealand dancing with the worst."

The surviving celebrities are former Miss Universe Lorraine Downes and Olympians Danyon Loader and Beatrice Faumuina.
