This is Strictly Come

Dancing - The Results.

0:04:120:04:18

On Remembrance Sunday.

0:04:180:04:21

Please welcome your hosts...

0:04:210:04:22

Tess Daly...

0:04:220:04:23

And Claudia Winkleman.

0:04:230:04:29

Hello, and welcome to

Strictly Come Dancing - The Results.

0:04:290:04:34

A huge thank you to our professional

dancers for that beautiful

0:04:340:04:37

Remembrance Day routine,

choreographed by Chris

0:04:370:04:39

Scott and accompanied

by the RAF Spitfires Choir.

0:04:390:04:49

Once again, we are delighted

to welcome injured servicemen,

0:04:490:04:51

women and staff from

the Defence Medical Rehabilitation

0:04:510:04:53

Centre at Headley Court.

0:04:530:04:56

Thank you so much for

joining us tonight.

0:04:560:05:06

We had another memorable night

in the Ballroom on Saturday.

0:05:060:05:09

Nine celebrities are left, but only

eight can make it to Blackpool.

0:05:160:05:19

Your votes have been combined

with the judges' scores,

0:05:190:05:21

and the two couples with the lowest

overall points will face each

0:05:210:05:24

other in the dance-off.

0:05:240:05:25

And then the decision of who stays

and who goes is down

0:05:250:05:28

to our ballroom experts...

0:05:280:05:33

Please welcome the judges!

0:05:330:05:37

Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli.

0:05:370:05:39

And Craig Revel Horwood

and Darcey Bussell.

0:05:390:05:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:05:430:05:47

Thank you, judges.

0:05:490:05:54

Also on the show tonight,

we have a music performance

0:05:570:05:59

from the one and only

Seal.

0:05:590:06:01

APPLAUSE.

0:06:010:06:03

Plus, the Judges will be expanding

on some of their comments

0:06:030:06:06

from Saturday night when we go

through the performances

0:06:060:06:08

frame-by-frame.

0:06:080:06:10

Very soon, we'll reveal the first

couple in the dance-off.

0:06:100:06:13

But before that, here's a recap

of every swivel and chasse

0:06:130:06:15

from Saturday night.

0:06:150:06:17

APPLAUSE.

0:06:170:06:20

Blackpool is on the horizon, but

whose Strictly Big Dipper ride is

0:06:250:06:35

ending.

I love Blackpool. I have to

get there.

The nerves have kicked

0:06:350:06:41

in, because Blackpool is the

pinnacle of ballroom dancing.

It is

0:06:410:06:48

the ambition, but you don't want too

get your hopes up, because somebody

0:06:480:06:52

isn't going to get there.

We know

how exciting it will be. It is

0:06:520:06:56

something I would love to be part

of. I would love everybody to go

0:06:560:07:00

through.

The fact that Aston went

last week I think has unnerved

0:07:000:07:04

everybody.

You have to be fun and

enjoy the process and the journey

0:07:040:07:08

and everything about Strictly.

You

can be the one that goes.

I want to

0:07:080:07:14

do my tango as well as I can. If I

go out I want to go out on a high.

0:07:140:07:19

We are back in the hold, that is

lovely. Straightaway. That is the

0:07:190:07:24

wrong way to look. I look that way.

I have been in the bottom two the

0:07:240:07:27

last two weeks and it knocks your

confidence. I want to give it

0:07:270:07:31

everything.

We are live in five

minutes, guys.

Are we ready?

Good

0:07:310:07:38

luck.

Live on Saturday from the BBC.

Let the good times roll!

You never

0:07:380:07:50

cease to amaze me. That was

incredible.

It was the essence of

0:07:500:07:58

salsa and infused with the spirit of

the youth.

You executed it to the

0:07:580:08:03

best of your ability.

For me, this

was good.

That was a smouldering

0:08:030:08:10

Latin lover with a caring and tender

touch.

I think you're the dark

0:08:100:08:15

horse.

All the steps were there, but

it does lack emotion in the body.

0:08:150:08:23

The performance is as important as

the technique. Let it out.

Fingers

0:08:230:08:29

crossed we get to Blackpool. I hope

the dance we have done was good

0:08:290:08:33

enough.

Your posture is the main

thing that bothers me.

Lovely

0:08:330:08:40

footwork, strong heels. Outstanding

the focus and drama.

I thought that

0:08:400:08:45

went well.

I loved every second of

it.

That core strength you have to

0:08:450:08:50

keep working at that. That will help

your balance.

It didn't quite happen

0:08:500:08:56

tonight.

We are waving Blackpool

goodbye.

It is scary, but I'm so

0:08:560:09:02

proud of her.

It wasn't my favourite

today.

I felt you were trotting.

You

0:09:020:09:10

were out of your depth.

Five.

I

caught it at the end. That was

0:09:100:09:15

squary.

I have noticed you were

better a couple of weeks ago.

Not

0:09:150:09:22

the best.

I'm concerned. I'm in a

risky position.

You were first

0:09:220:09:34

class.

Extraordinary.

I commend you,

how you get it - you go for that

0:09:340:09:39

lift.

You're amazing.

Nine.

Loved

it. From beginning to end I haven't

0:09:390:09:46

stopped smiling.

You're a

magnificent creature.

You connected

0:09:460:09:50

well with one another and I thought

it was superb.

You're getting better

0:09:500:10:00

and better week-by-week.

You are on

the way up.

Amazing.

Ten.

15,

0:10:000:10:09

16-year-old boy in me is screaming

to go to Blackpool. The 35-year-old

0:10:090:10:13

man is as well.

0:10:130:10:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:10:270:10:29

Another unforgettable night.

0:10:320:10:34

We're now left with nine Strictly

stars who are all desperate to find

0:10:340:10:37

out if they will make it

to Blackpool - the home of ballroom.

0:10:370:10:40

Here's a reminder of how Saturday

night's performances

0:10:400:10:42

left our couples on the leaderboard.

0:10:420:10:46

At the top we have Dawood and

Nadiya.

0:10:460:10:49

But how have your votes

changed all of that?

0:10:570:10:59

It's time to find out who will be

first to face the dance-off.

0:10:590:11:02

The results are in.

0:11:020:11:05

In no particular order,

the first couple safely

0:11:050:11:07

through to next week is...

0:11:070:11:16

Dawood and Nadiya.

Yes.

Thank you.

Thank you.

0:11:220:11:31

Dancing in next week's

Blackpool special will be...

0:11:310:11:42

Molly and AJ!

0:11:500:12:00

Remaining in the competition

for another week are...

0:12:040:12:14

Joe and Kelly.

Thank you.

0:12:200:12:32

The first couple who must compete

for survival in the dance-off is...

0:12:320:12:42

Jonny and Oti.

0:12:500:12:53

The rest of you will have to wait

a little longer to find out

0:12:530:12:56

if you've made it through.

0:12:560:13:00

Jonnie and Oti, please come and join

me. I'm so sorry to find you here.

0:13:000:13:05

That's OK.

How does it feel.

It is

part of show, it is fun and we have

0:13:050:13:11

got to try and do it better and hold

that shoulder down.

Craig, you were

0:13:110:13:19

pretty harsh on Jonnie on Saturday.

Can y give us some constructive

0:13:190:13:26

advice.

Concentrate on your hand

shaping and your balance. And let

0:13:260:13:32

your face light up. I've seen you in

do that before and I didn't see it

0:13:320:13:37

on Saturday night. So really

concentrate on that. And you could

0:13:370:13:41

win the day.

That lovely face light

up and that lovely smile. It is

0:13:410:13:47

still there. We will see you later.

Claudia, over to you.

Thank you. I

0:13:470:13:56

have three very happy couples, one

very shocked

Where did you first go

0:13:560:14:10

on holiday?

One of my first holidays

was pontoons in Blackpool, very

0:14:100:14:17

happy memories!

You are doing a

dance anthem, what's the song?

Right

0:14:170:14:22

On Time!

It's like the speakers were

actually next to me! Davood,

0:14:220:14:31

brilliant dance on Saturday night,

fantastic comments. You look like

0:14:310:14:35

you were in shock.

I'm in complete

shock. But I get to be James Bond!

0:14:350:14:41

It's amazing!

Fantastic. Nadiya

Comaneci has never been to

0:14:410:14:46

Blackpool. You have been and impeded

the many times. How would you

0:14:460:14:50

describe it to him?

Is the most

amazing place to dance.

Have you

0:14:500:14:54

been to New York?

No.

Have you been

to Paris?

I'm really quite

0:14:540:15:01

sheltered, aren't I! I need to get

out more!

It's better than all of

0:15:010:15:05

them, that's all I can say!

I can't

believe it, I'm so shocked. Thank

0:15:050:15:11

you so much for everyone who has

voted.

0:15:110:15:13

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Your reaction was extraordinary.

It

0:15:130:15:21

seems ridiculous, but it means so

much to all of us, because we are

0:15:210:15:25

working so hard. My Nan is up north,

she will be able to come and watch,

0:15:250:15:30

so it means the world to us.

Congratulations, darling. Well done,

0:15:300:15:34

AJ, well done.

0:15:340:15:36

As it's Remembrance Sunday,

our judges and some of our couples

0:15:360:15:38

joined some very special people

to help with this

0:15:380:15:41

year's Poppy Appeal.

0:15:410:15:46

We are taking part in the British

Legion's Poppy Day, to pay respects

0:15:460:15:52

to our Armed Forces, past and

present.

Poppies! Who won the poppy?

0:15:520:15:57

Thank you so much!

At three of

London's busiest train stations,

0:15:570:16:02

Waterloo, Paddington and King's

Cross, we are hoping to raise

0:16:020:16:05

awareness and money for the popular

appeal. The Wiggo, thank you! -- for

0:16:050:16:10

the Poppy Appeal.

I need a pain! --

the Wiggo.

This is very important.

0:16:100:16:19

It's not just about remembrance,

this money will go and help a lot of

0:16:190:16:23

service men and women who have been

through traumatic events.

It's a way

0:16:230:16:27

for the British public to look after

those people that have put

0:16:270:16:30

everything on the line for our

country.

We have to thank these

0:16:300:16:34

guys. They go to seriously dangerous

and scary environments.

Without

0:16:340:16:39

them, we wouldn't be standing here

in this safe environment.

Poppies!

0:16:390:16:44

Poppy Day is really important to me

and my family. My father was in the

0:16:440:16:56

Army for 27 years, and my mother was

in the wrens. We have a lot of

0:16:560:17:00

widows and children who have lost

mothers and fathers, and they need

0:17:000:17:02

our help, too.

I am a war widow, it

means an awful lot to me, not only

0:17:020:17:05

because I like to support the Army,

but I have seen the good work that

0:17:050:17:09

they do with some of my fellow

widows.

Ledbury do the honours!

My

0:17:090:17:11

father was in the Navy for 20 years.

I have a real connection to the

0:17:110:17:15

services.

My husband is a serving

member of the Armed Forces. I am

0:17:150:17:20

also a veteran, so we always donate.

A lot of people come back from the

0:17:200:17:24

war and really need a lot of help.

We need to look after them in the

0:17:240:17:27

way they are deserving to beat.

All

of the money that the Royal British

0:17:270:17:31

Legion raises provides support for

injured personnel and for families.

0:17:310:17:37

Long may it continue. People, please

don't ever forget!

0:17:370:17:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

The atmosphere has been really

0:17:400:17:45

amazing. We have had the Strictly

crew down here with the Grenadier

0:17:450:17:48

Guards.

A little bit of max lift,

darling!

It was a ten out of ten for

0:17:480:17:56

me!

0:17:560:17:58

Keep dancing!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:040:18:07

How lovely to see so much support

for such an important cause.

0:18:070:18:10

Very soon, we'll be revealing our

next couple in the dance-off.

0:18:100:18:13

But before that, performing his

latest single, Autumn Leaves,

0:18:130:18:16

it's the wonderful Seal.

0:18:160:18:18

APPLAUSE.

0:18:180:18:24

# The falling leaves

drift by my window

0:18:370:18:45

# The autumn leaves of red

and gold

0:18:450:18:53

# I see your lips, the summer

kisses

0:18:530:19:00

# The sunburned

hands I used to hold

0:19:000:19:09

# Since you went away,

the days grow long

0:19:090:19:17

# And soon I'll hear

old winter's song

0:19:170:19:25

# But I miss you most

of all my darling

0:19:250:19:34

# When autumn leaves start to fall

of all my darling

0:19:340:19:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:070:20:10

# Since you went away,

the days grow longer

0:20:130:20:20

# And soon I'll

hear old winter's song

0:20:200:20:28

# But I miss you most

0:20:280:20:35

0:20:350:20:45

APPLAUSE.

0:20:500:20:54

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:21:130:21:16

Thank you to the fantastic Seal,

and our professional

0:21:190:21:21

dancers, Anton and Nadiya.

0:21:210:21:29

For that special tribute on

remembrance weekend.

0:21:290:21:34

It's

0:21:340:21:35

time now for a dance debrief.

0:21:350:21:36

Please welcome the judges.

0:21:360:21:37

MUSIC: Rhythm Is A Dancer by Snap!

0:21:370:21:41

Thank you so much for coming up

here, you perfect for some! On

0:21:410:21:45

Saturday night, you often don't get

the chance to expand. This is where

0:21:450:21:49

you can. I'd like to ask you first,

surely, about Joe. You are calling

0:21:490:21:54

him the dock walls. He has

practically grown a tale! -- the

0:21:540:22:00

dark horse. Why is the rhombus so

difficult for a man?

First of all,

0:22:000:22:05

he has got to lead the lady and keep

a beautiful frame. But I've found he

0:22:050:22:09

was so involved in the dance,

constantly changing weight from foot

0:22:090:22:14

to foot. Beautiful leading ability,

and the beautiful body action that

0:22:140:22:20

he had.

Thank you so much.

APPLAUSE

0:22:200:22:25

Darcey, let's talk about the food.

We saw a different side to him. He

0:22:250:22:30

is -- about Davood. He is normally

serious.

He can be

0:22:300:22:36

is -- about Davood. He is normally

serious.

He can be quirky, but also

0:22:360:22:37

incredibly nimble. On the swivel and

the lovely spring in it, incredibly

0:22:370:22:42

supple. Also with the speed of the

lifts, how he is able to get her

0:22:420:22:48

around. Nadiya is a tall girl as

well. This one, I loved the last

0:22:480:22:53

one. This is amazing how he is able

to throw her really high. Superb!

0:22:530:22:58

one. This is amazing how he is able

to throw her really high. Superb!

0:22:580:23:00

APPLAUSE

He stayed in character all the way

0:23:000:23:06

through, it was difficult but he

made it look effortless.

Craig, on

0:23:060:23:11

Saturday night you talked about

Alexandra and Gorka. You said they

0:23:110:23:15

added more syllables! But it was

only one word.

0:23:150:23:18

added more syllables! But it was

only one word. Can you expand?

Well,

0:23:180:23:21

I loved this particular section, it

was just fantastic. I mean, she was

0:23:210:23:25

really detailed in this

specifically, and with the forward

0:23:250:23:30

chose, she was bringing her feet

together and swivelling beautifully

0:23:300:23:33

and replacing her

0:23:330:23:34

together and swivelling beautifully

and replacing her weight. She did

0:23:340:23:36

really, really well. It is a

difficult answer and it is primarily

0:23:360:23:39

led by the man.

APPLAUSE

0:23:390:23:43

Thank you so much. Bruno, let's talk

about the by. I know that some of

0:23:430:23:48

the spins she didn't

0:23:480:23:50

about the by. I know that some of

the spins she didn't quite get --

0:23:500:23:51

talk about Debbie.

I don't know if

it was him or her that was in the

0:23:510:23:55

wrong position and lost the grid.

Nevertheless, the floor of the

0:23:550:23:59

movement...

Look at this lift!

Look

at that. Most people do the salsa in

0:23:590:24:05

a very jagged, staccato way. And you

shouldn't, it

0:24:050:24:07

a very jagged, staccato way. And you

shouldn't, it should be lovely,

0:24:070:24:09

flowing and sensual. She did that

without ever losing the rhythm.

We

0:24:090:24:14

are off to Blackpool next week. We

talk about it with such excitement.

0:24:140:24:18

Surely, I found a photo of you. You

made the final 17 times. Here you

0:24:180:24:24

are in Blackpool -- Shirley. Can you

just share with the group, what

0:24:240:24:29

makes it so special?

Were like it's

the biggest venue in the world, it

0:24:290:24:34

hosts the biggest Championships in

the world for juniors and adults and

0:24:340:24:37

I've been blessed to be going there

since I was seven years old, for me

0:24:370:24:42

it holds a special place in my

heart. Plus, I'm going home to the

0:24:420:24:45

North of England.

Brilliant, thank

you very much. We are all coming

0:24:450:24:49

with you! Everyone!

We will all love

that!

Let's hear it for the judges

0:24:490:24:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:24:590:25:06

Three couples have already reserved

their seats on the coach up to

0:25:060:25:09

Blackpool.

He will be joining them? -- who will

0:25:090:25:12

be.

0:25:120:25:13

Thanks, Claudia.

0:25:130:25:14

All our couples want to dance

in the world-famous Tower Ballroom.

0:25:140:25:18

But sadly, one of them will join

Jonnie and Oti in the dance-off.

0:25:180:25:21

It's time to find out who it will

be.

0:25:210:25:24

In no particular order...

0:25:240:25:25

Going through to next week are...

0:25:250:25:35

Alexandra and Gorka!

APPLAUSE

0:25:390:25:46

Surviving for another

week will be...

0:25:490:25:59

Debbie and Giovanni!

APPLAUSE

0:26:040:26:09

Thank you!

Thank you so much!

0:26:090:26:12

Safely through to our

Blackpool special are...

0:26:120:26:22

Gemma and Aljaz should!

0:26:270:26:33

APPLAUSE

Thank you!

0:26:360:26:38

So, that means Ruth and Anton and

Susan and Kevin, one of you is safe,

0:26:440:26:49

and one of you is in the dance-off.

0:26:490:26:53

I can reveal that the couple

0:26:530:26:55

in the bottom two tonight

who will compete in

0:26:550:26:57

the dance-off is...

0:26:570:27:05

Ruth and Anton. So, Susan and Kevin,

congratulations, you are through to

0:27:050:27:13

Blackpool. Ruth and Anton, please

come and join me.

0:27:130:27:21

Oh, I'm so sorry, so, so sorry. Is

it disappointing to find yourself in

0:27:300:27:37

the dance-off?

Well, I haven't been

in the dance-off yet, so well do my

0:27:370:27:41

best, I love the dance and I love

the song, it has happy memories for

0:27:410:27:44

me. I'll just go and enjoy it.

Have

a lovely time.

If it's going to be

0:27:440:27:49

the last one for me, I will enjoy

it.

Bruno, how can they get the fox

0:27:490:27:54

back into the trot in the

dance-off?!

Try not to go wrong! You

0:27:540:28:01

know, if you go wrong, just kind of

mask it very well. Smoke and

0:28:010:28:07

mirrors, darling.

Smoke and mirrors,

he says. We wish you all the very

0:28:070:28:15

best for the dance-off, and we'll

see you later on.

0:28:150:28:22

Four more happy couples

are through to Blackpool.

0:28:220:28:26

Very well done. Debbie, you are

dancing to a Spice Girls medley. A

0:28:260:28:31

samba. Giovanni, which Spice Girl is

Debbie?

Definitely cheeky spice!

0:28:310:28:40

There wasn't actually a cheeky

spies!

A cheeky spice girl!

OK, stop

0:28:400:28:45

speaking! I love you, it's going to

be amazing.

We are so excited, we

0:28:450:28:55

just want to thank everybody for

voting for us. Blackpool here we

0:28:550:29:01

come!

Alexandra, the last time you

are in Blackpool, you will with the

0:29:010:29:03

Queen?

Yes, I sang for the Queen,

and it was amazing.

How

0:29:030:29:08

extraordinary. How does that great

competitive during quickstep with

0:29:080:29:12

this creature?!

It's going to be the

same level.

I would say that doing

0:29:120:29:17

quickstep with gawker might be

better!

We are going to have a great

0:29:170:29:23

time, I'm so excited that I could

scream! The wait a quickstep across

0:29:230:29:27

the huge dance floor. It is the

first time for me dancing in

0:29:270:29:31

Blackpool. I'm very excited.

Well

done, Alexandra and Gorka, well

0:29:310:29:38

done. Susan, you have never been to

Blackpool.

I've never been there in

0:29:380:29:43

my life.

What would you like to say

for the lovely people getting you

0:29:430:29:47

the?

I cannot thank you enough. We

are doing Kevin Clifton's paso

0:29:470:29:50

doble, that you have always wanted

to do.

I have been pitching this

0:29:500:29:55

number for five years and it never

gets across the line. They finally

0:29:550:29:58

said to me, if you make it to

Blackpool, you can do it at

0:29:580:30:02

Blackpool this year. I'm so excited!

Thank you for getting us that!

You

0:30:020:30:06

first dance at Blackpool when you

are only eight years old.

That's

0:30:060:30:11

right. I'm really old now! Are going

to want to say how many years that

0:30:110:30:15

is, but I've been going the... It's

just a really special and important

0:30:150:30:19

place to be.

We can't thank people

enough for voting for us. When we

0:30:190:30:23

got past -- into this, edition, we

didn't think we would get past week

0:30:230:30:29

one.

We thought we would make it to

win three.

Going to Blackpool is so

0:30:290:30:33

important to use the purer we go

every year with my family, I was

0:30:330:30:37

there into my

it's got so many

amazing childhood memories for me.

0:30:370:30:44

And it's my birthday as well that we

can! The white well done, you had

0:30:440:30:49

such a wonderful reaction.

What

would you like to state your lovely

0:30:490:30:56

dance partner?

I made it this year!

I love. I can't wait to go back to

0:30:560:31:01

the ballroom, it's the most special

place to dance and you are going to

0:31:010:31:05

absolutely love it, I can't wait for

you to see it!

0:31:050:31:11

Now every year our celebrities dream

of spending a Saturday night in a

0:31:110:31:17

very special seaside town.

I can't

believe Blackpool is one week away.

0:31:170:31:26

I have never been to Blackpool.

It

would be incredible if I got to

0:31:260:31:29

dance there.

My whole Strictly

journey has been leading up to that

0:31:290:31:34

moment in Blackpool.

All the

professional dancers tell us...

It

0:31:340:31:39

is the spiritual home of ballroom.

It would be unbelievable.

It has

0:31:390:31:43

been a dream of mine ooh the fact we

have a chance is phenomenal.

0:31:430:31:48

Blackpool is such a big deal.

There

is nine of us left and we are like

0:31:480:31:53

family.

The reality is...

One won't

be going.

To dance there would be an

0:31:530:32:04

honour.

0:32:040:32:08

APPLAUSE.

0:32:080:32:09

One of these couples will make it

to the Tower Ballroom.

0:32:090:32:11

The other will be leaving

the competition and

0:32:110:32:13

joining Zoe on Monday.

0:32:130:32:16

How will you go into this?

I will

enjoy it. If it is my last dance, it

0:32:160:32:22

is with this man and I loved it the

first time. I hope I can catch the

0:32:220:32:27

hat and cane again.

Good start.

Good

luck, please get into position.

Good

0:32:270:32:33

luck.

Good luck.

0:32:330:32:38

How much do you want to be in

Blackpool?

It would be lovely. With

0:32:400:32:46

being this close, everyone wants to

get there. But we have got go out

0:32:460:32:49

and have fun. Like Ruth said, we

have to have fun and even if it is

0:32:490:32:53

our last dance, we get it to do it

with Oti.

He is amazing.

You have

0:32:530:33:00

the best partnership.

Best of luck.

We will see you later. We hate

0:33:000:33:07

saying goodbye to anyone, but

someone must go tonight. Dancing

0:33:070:33:13

first, give a big hand to Ruth and

Anton!

0:33:130:33:17

MUSIC: Mac The Knife.

0:33:290:33:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

Oh! Well if

that was the last one, I loved it.

0:34:540:35:05

Now fighting for their chance to

dance next week it is Jonnie and

0:35:050:35:11

Oti.

0:35:110:35:13

MUSIC: Sun Like You. -- Someone Like

You.

0:35:410:35:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Oh!

0:36:580:37:10

Well done to both couples.

0:37:100:37:11

You can do no more.

0:37:110:37:21

Judges, it's time to decide.

0:37:220:37:28

Based on that dance,

0:37:280:37:29

and that dance alone,

I'm about to ask each

0:37:290:37:31

of you the name of the couple

you think deserves to stay and why.

0:37:310:37:35

The couple with the most votes

will remain in the competition,

0:37:350:37:37

meaning the other couple is out

of Strictly Come Dancing.

0:37:370:37:40

In the event of a split decision,

Head Hudge, Shirley,

0:37:400:37:42

you will have the casting vote.

0:37:420:37:44

Ruth, Anton, Jonnie and Oti this is

it. Craig who will you save and why.

0:37:440:37:50

The person who took the notice and

criticisms that we dealt out on

0:37:500:37:54

board and improved actually in the

dance-off and for me personally was

0:37:540:37:59

the better dance, I would like to

save Jonnie and Oti.

Well done, one

0:37:590:38:08

vote for you. What do you think

deserves to stay and why?

The couple

0:38:080:38:14

I would like to save on the element

of difficulty and having no

0:38:140:38:18

mistakes, that is Jonnie and Oti.

Two votes for Jonnie and Oti. If

0:38:180:38:25

Bruno chooses to save you, also that

means you are indeed through to

0:38:250:38:29

Blackpool. What do you want to stay?

I would to say the couple I think

0:38:290:38:35

has improved, it was cleaner and

more emotionally involving, for that

0:38:350:38:40

reason I save Jonnie and Oti.

That

means we will say goodbye to Ruth

0:38:400:38:47

and Anton. Congratulations to Jonnie

and Oti, we will

0:38:470:38:57

see you next week. Shirl do you

agree?

Yes, I would have saved

0:38:570:39:02

Jonnie and Oti.

I'm so sorry. Come

here. Oh! So sorry.

Don't be. Thank

0:39:020:39:12

you.

So sorry to see you go. Just

before Blackpool. You have provided

0:39:120:39:22

us with so much joy. We will never

forget the paso last week. I'm

0:39:220:39:31

disappointed for Anton, because he

should be at Blackpool. I'm so

0:39:310:39:34

sorry.

Well done.

Don't say sorry,

you have been a wonderful

0:39:340:39:39

partnership. He has made this whole

thing so much fun. I have loved it.

0:39:390:39:45

Even the judges' comments, even

Craigs. He knows I love him really.

0:39:450:39:49

All the wonderful people up there

deserve to be going to Blackpool.

0:39:490:39:55

But you Anton Du Beke...

Are the

most fabulous man, so funny and a

0:39:550:40:02

beautiful dancer and I hope we will

be friends for a long time.

Forever.

0:40:020:40:07

You are amazing.

Anton what would

you like to say?

I want to say thank

0:40:070:40:16

you to Ruth, because you are

amazing. And I love you.

Oh! From

0:40:160:40:21

the heart! He loves you. We will

miss these two in Blackpool. Sorry

0:40:210:40:30

to send you off. Off you go for your

last dance.

Ruth and Anton become

0:40:300:40:39

the seventh couple to leave Strictly

2017 and they will join Zoe on It

0:40:390:40:47

Takes Two.

For more go to the

web-site.

We will be back on

0:40:470:40:55

Saturday live from the Tower

Ballroom in Blackpool. Now with

0:40:550:41:00

their final dance it is Ruth and

Anton.

0:41:000:41:05

MUSIC: Don't Let the Sun Go Down On

Me.

0:41:140:41:25

We have had this special sparkle

that we will miss.

She is amazing

0:42:060:42:13

and she will be a real loss.

How do

you do it.

Keep dancing.

Keep

0:42:130:42:22

dancing.

We made to it Blackpool.

Bring on the hard work and I can't

0:42:220:42:29

wait.

We are through to Blackpool

which is something I never thought

0:42:290:42:34

would happen in a million billion

years.

We're having the time of our

0:42:340:42:39

lives. Blackpool, baby.

A bit cold.

But we are going to

0:42:390:42:45
