Katie McGlynn looks glum as she dresses down in a grey tracksuit and quilted jacket for food shop after Strictly Come Dancing elimination
Katie McGlynn cut a downcast figure on Saturday as she stepped out almost a week after she was eliminated from this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.
And the glitz and glamour of the show was firmly in the past for Katie as she wore a cosy quilted jacket and baggy tracksuit bottoms for a trip to her local supermarket this weekend.
Strictly business: Katie McGlynn, 28, cut a solemn figure on Saturday as she stepped out in a cosy quilted jacket and baggy tracksuit bottoms after she was eliminated Strictly last week
The screen star wore a cropped top to match the grey shade of her trousers and a comfortable pair of trainers on her feet.
She styled her brown hair up in a top knot and a pair of stylish black-rimmed glasses on her face.
Katie could be seen stepping out of her white Range Rover as she ran her errands.
End of the line: The Hollyoaks actress and her dance partner Gorka Marquez, 31, were given the boot from the BBC ballroom dance contest on Sunday’s show during Movie Week
The low-key appearance comes after Katie was seen dressed as Cruella De Vil while Gorka wore a Dalmatian costume to dance the American Smooth last Saturday.
They failed to win over the judges with their performance and found themselves in the dance off on Sunday.
During tan appearance on It Take Two this week, when asked about being the second couple to be eliminated from the competition, Katie said: ‘We’re sad because it means we won’t be rehearsing together, it means our journey’s ended but we’re still going to stay friends.

‘He lives in Manchester and I live in Manchester so we’ve already set up a dinner date so yeah, we’re going to catch up. We’ve got mutual friends so we’ll definitely stay in touch.’
When asked about how she felt about dancing the American Smooth for Movie Week, Katie said: ‘It was so much fun and to end on Movie Week was just the final gem for me. Emma Thompson was also in the audience. I met and spoke to her and she was so lovely so we ended on a high.’
Gorka added: ‘We tried our best the whole week and I think it was a great number. I’m happy that she got to do Movie Week being an actress. Movie Week is an important week.
Cruella: Movie Week saw Katie and Gorka perform their American Smooth to Cruella De Vil from Cruella in a bid to impress the judges
‘The only thing I’m gutted about is that as she’s obsessed with Halloween, she couldn’t get to Halloween Week but at least Cruella is a bit Halloween!’
After scoring their highest score on the leader board on Saturday, Katie said: ‘We left on a high – Movie Week, Cruella, Pongo… it meant we improved because the whole point of me joining the show was to learn how to dance and to improve because I’m not a dancer at all – as you saw!
‘But do you know what, Gorka had a lot of patience with me. He taught me and I’ll never regret it. It was a lifetime achievement.’
Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday and Sunday nights on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
