Comedian Andy Dick choked back tears on U.S. Tv on Tuesday night (30Apr13) as he was booted off reality show Dancing With The Stars.

The funnyman earned just 17 points for his rumba with professional Sharna Burgess on Monday's (29Apr13) episode, putting the couple at the bottom of the score board - and viewers decided to vote them off.

Upon hearing the news, DICk fought back tears as he declared, "I've been talking about it since day one, this (experience) has been the best. The fact that we're here on week seven is amazing. Every week, I'm like, 'Really? Why? How?' I really thank everyone here, the fans, the judges, it's been a wonderful ride."

Country singer Kellie Pickler and actress Zendaya are among the stars still in the competition.
