During the live show, the couple performed the Paso Doble for 'Front Row' judges Wayne Sleep, Mel B and Jason Gardiner, who were slightly less than impressed with their efforts.
Jason accused Jackie of having "a face like thunder" throughout the routine, while Mel B was curious if the couple were in the middle of an argument because that is how it came across on stage.
The pair only managed to score 23 points out of a possible 60 for their routine and was soon eliminated from the competition following the public vote.
However before their fate was revealed, the pair took part in Stepping Out's own 'wife swap', with Laurence paired with Oritsé Williams' girlfriend A.J, while Jackie danced with former Westlife star Brian McFadden.
All three couples in the competition received high praise for their sultry jazz routine, with Laurence and Jackie both separately managing to get top marks from the judges.
The Stepping Out final will see Oritsé and A.J face off against Brian and his wife Vogue.
Stepping Out returns to UTV next Saturday.
