In a tough round of questions, viewers learned that Dick and Dom had both got the same number of questions wrong.
But, Dom was technically the “weakest link” as his incorrect answer lost the team the most money.
When Dick revealed his vote for Dom, Dom shouted: “Wait what?! Are you having a laugh? 25 years?! What did we say before we came out here?”
Dick replied: “This is what happens when they split us up, we have to compete against each other.”
But Dom protested: “Ant and Dec would never do this to each other.”
Shocked, host Romesh Ranganathan said: “Can not believe what I’ve just seen.

“When you two arrived, first of all, I was very excited. Secondly, I didn’t think you were going to vote for each other. So talk me through this.”
Dick explained: “Well, we’ve been a duo for 25 years this year and this is the first time we’ve ever been asked to work separately.
“And this is a competition quiz show, and we’re competing against each other. And Dom got both his answers wrong, so… Dom is the weakest link. Goodbye!”
Fans couldn’t believe the rivalry as one said: “OMG Dick with the surprise vote against Dom on Weakest Link.”
Another wrote: “@dickndom just watching #weakestlink oh poor Dom been shafted by your bestie, hope you’re back talking & held of the friendship divorce.”
A third penned: “Dick voted Dom off on #weakestlink@dickndom Dick how could you!?”
After being eliminated, Dom said: “Being voted off The Weakest Link I can accept. It’s something you can guarantee is going to happen. You know, some win, but most of the time, people lose, and they’re voted off. I can accept that.
“What I can’t accept is being voted off by my best friend, my double act partner and business colleague of 25 years. Never did I see that coming!”
Dick and Dom first began presenting on CBBC in the late 1990s.
They hosted a number of shows including Dick And Dom In Da Bungalow, The Legend Of Dick And Dom, Dick And Dom’s Hoopla and Absolute Chaos With Dick And Dom – which they also won a BAFTA for.Dick revealed that this was the first time they have been asked to work separately[/caption] Romesh couldn’t believe Dick turned on Dom[/caption]
