Tilly found herself in the bottom two against Rhys after the pair both failed to win enough of the public vote after Saturday night.
After giving it a good go and both showing improvement in their routines for survival, it was Rhys who was put through by all four judges.
Whilst Tilly gave a heartfelt speech upon her exit, it clearly meant a lot to her famous father, who couldn’t help but get emotional.
Standing next to his wife Tana Ramsay, he could be seen wiping tears from his eyes as his daughter paid tribute to her dance partner Nikita Kuzmin.
The pair were proudly sat in the audience for Tilly’s first attempt at her routine which was broadcast on Saturday night.

Fans also cottoned onto Gordon getting emotional, as many praised Tilly after her exit was confirmed.
One wrote on Twitter: ‘Anton was absolutely right. @tillyramsay is an incredible role model for young people. She’s smart, mature and so gracious. Gordon should be very proud of her and I have no doubt he is. Sad to see her leave #Strictly.’
Another viewer said: ‘Seeing Gordon Ramsey cry breaks me #Strictly,’ with a fan echoing: ‘Gordon Ramsey is a big softie really. Sorry to see Tilly go. #Strictly #tillyramsay.’

‘Must say I’m gonna miss seeing Gordon crying every week on #Strictly,’ someone else added.
When asked by host Tess Daly about their time on the show, Tilly said: ‘I’d just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has made this an amazing, positive journey for me.
‘From everyone here to backstage, wardrobe, makeup and camera crew. It’s just been the most extraordinary time. I found out something about myself that I didn’t know I could do, I didn’t know I could dance and have fun like this.
‘So a massive thank you and, obviously, a huge thank you to Nikita who has guided me out of my shell and has just made this the most amazing experience.’
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday night at 6.40pm on BBC One.
