:06:54.:06:54.

:07:54.:08:00.

of me doing the launch day and look at me now. I mean, I am a different

favourite dance from the series. So, first, to tackle the new dance, an

:10:18.:10:27.

American Smooth, it is Harry and Last day of training. Let's make it

:10:27.:10:33.

a good one! This is our last ever week of training and I'm going to

:10:33.:10:38.

miss it. Who will miss a face like that?! We know each other very well

:10:38.:10:42.

now. We have spent every day together for the past four months.

:10:42.:10:46.

Thank goodness we get on really well. Oh, you are so cute! When

this is all over, I don't know what I'm going to do because there will

:10:51.:10:56.

be no-one to giggle at! LAUGHTER have had so many highlights on this

:10:56.:11:05.

show. I have been Danny Zuko to Aliona's Pink Lady, I have been

:11:05.:11:14.

Robin Hood to Aliona's Maid Marion. I have learnt how to do the waltz.

:11:14.:11:20.

This is week 12 and I am struggling to stand. It has been an honour to

:11:20.:11:24.

dance with Aliona. If we were the ones to lift the Glitterball Trophy

:11:24.:11:29.

in the final, it really would be the perfect ending to our Strictly

:11:29.:11:35.

story. We have had a lot of fun together. LAUGHTER He is genuinely

:11:35.:11:41.

a very sweet, caring guy. Get off! And definitely going to miss that

:14:16.:14:17.

beautiful. It was very emotional. They have fallen in love with you.

:14:17.:14:24.

It's a wonderful night. Now, then, over to you judges. Their scores

:14:24.:14:31.

are just for the public's guidance. So, let's hear from you, Len?

:14:31.:14:34.

you did an American Smooth to a Viennese waltz. When you did the

:14:34.:14:39.

Viennese waltz before, I loved it. Now, add the elements you can now

:14:39.:14:43.

do lifts, you can part company, I tell you what, you made what was a

:14:43.:14:53.
:14:53.:14:54.

great dance into an unbelievable dance! APPLAUSE Yes. OK. Alesha?

:14:54.:14:58.

You are such an accomplished dancer and a true talent. As the song says,

:14:58.:15:03.

I think the nation has fallen in love with you. I really do.

:15:03.:15:10.

APPLAUSE It was beautiful. Forgetting Bruno, of course! Harry,

:15:10.:15:16.

the Viennese waltz based on an American Smooth is the perfect fit

:15:16.:15:22.

for your charms. Romantic, beautiful movement, I salute you,

:15:22.:15:30.

Your Highness! APPLAUSE And what about Craig? Well, if it wasn't the

:15:30.:15:34.

final, there is a plethora of things I could say about your

:15:34.:15:42.

hands! LAUGHTER I loved it. It was gentle, it was romantic. Gorgeous!

:15:42.:15:47.

APPLAUSE Did you enjoy doing a new dance? What a pleasure! The new

:15:47.:15:53.

dance suits you! Thank you. Off you go. Why didn't you do it earlier?!

:15:53.:16:03.

APPLAUSE The phone numbers are on the screen now. So vote for your

:16:03.:16:10.

favourite. We can't help falling in love with you, Harry. Len said

:16:10.:16:13.

"unbelievable". You are in the final head-to-head battle. Is there

:16:14.:16:17.

anything you want to say to the viewers at home? What can I say? It

:16:17.:16:21.

is so humbling to think that people are voting for you. It's something

:16:21.:16:26.

I have never experienced before. It is overwhelming. I can't thank

:16:26.:16:32.

everyone enough. Aliona feels the same. Thank you. Thank you. I can't

:16:32.:16:35.

wait to see your favourite dance of the series. The judges' scores are

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:59.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE 39 out of 40. Fabulous score. Harry

:16:59.:17:03.

keeps on giving. The judges don't decide tonight's winner, you do. If

:17:03.:17:07.

you want Harry and Aliona to take the crown, then you need to vote.

:17:07.:17:11.

They have one more chance to impress you. They will be bringing

:17:11.:17:15.

back their favourite dance later on. Will it be your favourite? Bruce.

:17:15.:17:21.

Now, then, next to tackle their brand-new dance, a rumba, is

:17:21.:17:29.

Chelsee and Pasha. APPLAUSE Here they are in training. It's the last

:17:29.:17:32.

week and I'm going to miss so much, especially the buzz of the show

:17:32.:17:37.

days. I have a lot of tension. Just embracing the backstage atmosphere

:17:37.:17:42.

is just fabulous. I love it. For me and Pash to pick up the Glitterball,

:17:42.:17:48.

it would be such an incredible end. I will really miss training. We

:17:48.:17:52.

have had a lot of fun. It is more of a hanging out with my mate as

:17:52.:17:59.

well as learning to dance. Two, three... Why do you always feel

:17:59.:18:04.

yourself when you do that? I don't. She is fun. Snorting! She is like a

:18:04.:18:10.

little sister. Put your phone down! The highlights have been definitely

:18:10.:18:15.

when I got painted as Princess Fiona. A lot of people didn't think

:18:15.:18:22.

I had make-up on! In a funny way, it suited her. Look at me! You look

:18:22.:18:25.

perfect. Don't tell her, please. makes me so sad to think our rumba

:18:26.:18:31.

will be the last new dance that Pasha and I have to do together.

:18:31.:18:37.

You know what face this is? It is emotional! We have got so far. One

:18:37.:18:42.

more stop. The end of seeing my Pasha every day, it will be so

:18:42.:18:46.

upsetting. I'm gutting thinking about it. Chelsee is one of a kind,

:18:46.:18:50.

one in a million! There is nobody else out there just like Chelsee

:18:50.:19:00.

and it was so much fun working with her. Off to Blackpool now. APPLAUSE

Bruno? Baby, you nailed that rumba! Expressive, fluid, musical. You

:21:49.:21:59.
:21:59.:22:00.

acted it like a movie star! I loved it! Thank you. APPLAUSE Craig, when

:22:00.:22:06.

you look like that, anything can happen. You pulled that out of the

:22:06.:22:16.
:22:16.:22:16.

bag! It was magnificent! APPLAUSE Well done, Chelsee. Len? The rumba

:22:16.:22:22.

is like Len's Lens, it is so slow. Everything is magnified. I watched

:22:22.:22:32.

that and there was nothing I could see I didn't like. Thank you.

:22:32.:22:37.

you enjoy your new dance? I loved it. I'm so glad I got to perform it.

:23:13.:23:19.

You have your favourite dance of the series. What have you picked?

:23:19.:23:29.

would you find an Italian glamourpuss in a coffin, a batty

There they go again! What a night! What a night! That was superb.

:35:00.:35:06.

Their favourite dance of the series. I wonder if it is yours. Bruno?

:35:06.:35:14.

Harry, so cool, so strong, so sharp, so cutting like a steel blade and

:35:14.:35:20.

yet bubbling underneath all the repressed lust. I think I have been

:35:20.:35:30.
:35:30.:35:30.

tangoed! APPLAUSE Oh dear. Craig? Like the nation, I have fallen in

:35:30.:35:40.

love with you too, darling. APPLAUSE Brilliant. I have never

:35:40.:35:45.

seen that look in Craig's eyes before. LAUGHTER Len? You know,

:35:45.:35:49.

last time you did this I said I wanted more intensity, not in the

:35:49.:35:53.

choreography, but through the expression. And you listened to me.

:35:53.:36:01.

You came out - go on my son. Beautiful. Well done. APPLAUSE Len,

:36:01.:36:08.

everybody listens to you! Except Bruno! LAUGHTER Now, Alesha?

:36:08.:36:12.

loved it the first time. I love it more now. Perfect choice for the

:36:12.:36:22.
:36:22.:36:26.

final. APPLAUSE Go on, get off! Get away! APPLAUSE The numbers are on

:36:26.:36:32.

the screen now. Lines are open so get dialling for your favourite.

:36:32.:36:37.

Your favourite dance of the series. Did you enjoy it more that time?

:36:37.:36:41.

Absolutely loved it. Now that we have done three, I was much more

:36:41.:36:44.

relaxed and I thought I have to enjoy this because it is my last

:36:44.:36:49.

chance and it was really good fun. Your last dance ever with Aliona!

:36:49.:36:59.
:36:59.:36:59.

How does that feel? APPLAUSE Wow! Craig, he's in love with you!

:36:59.:37:09.
:37:09.:37:32.

40 out of 40! Wow! Perfect score. What a way to cap it off! Remember,

:37:32.:37:37.

the judges' scores are only for guidance. Harry and Aliona's work

:37:37.:37:41.

now is done. You can do nothing more. Yours isn't. If you think

:37:41.:37:44.

they are worthy of the Strictly crown, it is time to pick up the

:37:44.:37:54.
:37:54.:37:54.

phone and vote. Over to you, Brucie. Thanks, Tess. Tonight's ballroom

:37:54.:37:57.

down to this? Performing their favourite routine from the series,

first-class, darling. Oh, first- class. APPLAUSE Len? It is your

:40:21.:40:25.

favourite dance and it could well be my favourite dance as well!

:40:25.:40:33.

Fabulous! Thank you, Len. APPLAUSE Oh! Alesha? That was the perfect

:40:33.:40:37.

combination of a great dress, great song and a great dance on what has

:40:37.:40:42.

been the greatest series. You have all danced incredible tonight.

:41:18.:41:25.

it still your favourite? Definitely. I loved the rumba as well. And...

:41:25.:41:30.

All of them! LAUGHTER How long have we got? This is the very last dance

:41:30.:41:36.

with your Pash! How does that make you feel? Really upset. I couldn't

:41:36.:41:41.

have done it without Pasha. He's helped me so much. He's made me

:41:42.:41:45.

become a dancer, more confident and without him, I couldn't imagine

:41:45.:41:53.

doing it with anyone else. He means a lot to me. It is a pleasure.

:41:53.:42:03.
:42:03.:42:17.

APPLAUSE A beautiful partnership. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:42:17.:42:22.

39 out of 40. A big smile from Chelsee. They have danced their

last Strictly dance. If you think they deserve to lift the

Glitterball tonight, get dialling. Your votes alone will make them

:42:31.:42:36.

loved about another wrufl Strictly year. -- another wonderful Strictly

year. It's blown me away! Bigger, better, more! I am so excited.

:46:06.:46:11.

more could you want?! Best Entertainment Show on TV. It is the

:46:11.:46:16.

biggest show on earth. It is one of the few programmes I can sit with

my mum, my gran and my daughter. We all love it. It has the lot. Keep

your Saturday nights have started for the winter. Jason, the dancer

:46:36.:46:42.

we have chosen for you is Kristina Rihanoff. Did you see her, she flew

:46:42.:46:49.

at him! I would throw myself at Jason Donovan! Flavia and Russell

:46:49.:46:54.

made a great pair together. When Lulu got Brendan, she nearly

:46:54.:46:59.

dropped through the floor! This year's Strictly has been the best

:46:59.:47:03.

because of the eye candy. Jason Donovan can come round any time he

:47:03.:47:10.

likes! When Holly came up that cage, I thought she was tasty. Chelsee

:47:11.:47:19.

seems like a nice girl. She is fit! I'm wild about Harry! He's got a

:47:19.:47:24.

bit of a body! After being married for so long, a bit of stuff like

:47:24.:47:29.

him would be OK! LAUGHTER I wish I could dance like that. The older

:47:29.:47:37.

ladies have done us proud this year. Edwina Currie, game old bird!

:47:37.:47:47.
:47:47.:47:51.

got egg on her face. Nancy was interesting. Keep going! Nancy came

:47:52.:47:57.

out the coffin on the Hallowe'en show. When Holly did the Black Swan,

:47:57.:48:03.

that was a highlight. Holly looked incredible. It was more like

:48:04.:48:12.

watching a ballet dance. Lulu like a bat out of hell! She was better

:48:12.:48:20.

in here than on the dancefloor! Brendan, the shining knight. First

:48:20.:48:26.

with Lulu, Holly and then Anita. Anita did really well. I can't get

over the stamina that she had. are a huge example. Each week, you

:48:33.:48:43.
:48:43.:48:46.

kept on thinking it can't get any Best moment for me was Robbie

:48:46.:48:55.

Savage opening Wembley! That was a highlight. When Robbie leaped over

:48:55.:48:59.

Ola's head, I thought he was going to fall. Surprised at how over the

:48:59.:49:04.

top he was. I liked Robbie's legs the other week as well. I thought

:49:04.:49:12.

that was so comical. My Strictly highlight was everything Russell!

:49:12.:49:18.

When I was ballroom dancing, we didn't get shot out of cannons. For

:49:18.:49:26.

all there was a war on. I don't think I would have liked to have

:49:26.:49:36.
:49:36.:49:38.

done that. He has a lot of guts. Astonishing! Craig Revel Horwood is

:49:38.:49:48.

so funny! Disaster, darling! Disaster! Very harsh judge. Sexless,

:49:48.:49:57.

cold and stiff! I will show you what sexless, cold and stiff is!

:49:57.:50:04.

Jason Donovan put his mind to everything. I thought that was

:50:04.:50:09.

wonderful. Jason and Kristina! didn't deserve to be in the bottom

:50:09.:50:18.

two. No, no. I loved Chelsee's Shrek dance. Those kicks and flicks

:50:18.:50:22.

were amazing. It summarised the fun that has been Strictly Come Dancing

:50:22.:50:32.
:50:32.:50:38.

I will miss Strictly Come Dancing when it finishes. It's been amazing.

:50:38.:50:46.

I can't wait till next year. Another 12 months to wait! What are

:50:46.:50:56.

we going to do?! I'll miss you Strictly. Remember, keep dancing!

:50:56.:51:05.

:51:18.:51:22.

Strictly cast. When they first started on the show, most of them

couldn't dance for nuts! LAUGHTER Now you are going to find out some

:51:26.:51:34.

of them still can't! LAUGHTER Shame! Isn't it a shame? 11 couples

:51:34.:51:38.

with varying degrees of skill, all on the dancefloor together. All

:51:38.:51:43.

that remains for us to do is wish them good luck and quickly get out

are now moments away from finding out if Harry and Aliona or Chelsee

:54:51.:54:56.

and Pasha are this year's Strictly Champions. One thing is certain -

:54:56.:55:03.

they have both been sensational Strictly stars. My Strictly

:55:03.:55:09.

experience has been the best thing I have ever done. I thought it was

:55:09.:55:13.

fab-u-lous! At the start, a lot of people was judges me before they

:55:13.:55:18.

knew me. It was disheartening, but to know that I have changed some

:55:18.:55:23.

people's opinions is one of the best feelings ever. Chelsee "the

:55:23.:55:27.

pocket rocket"! Mine and Pasha's relationship is quite special, I'd

say. He tells me off sometimes. your phone down. Don't confiscate

:55:51.:55:54.

never expected to get this far. I am proud of myself. It is one of

:55:54.:56:03.

the best feelings I have ever had. It is life-changing. I have

:56:03.:56:10.

thoroughly enjoyed my Strictly experience. That was a samba full

:56:10.:56:14.

of pecs-appeal! I have enjoyed it so much more. I was dreading it. I

:56:14.:56:19.

was thinking "Why?" am I doing this? It was filth and I loved it!

:56:19.:56:27.

I soon realised what an amazing opportunity I had. I'm not entirely

:56:27.:56:33.

on my own. If Aliona wasn't there, I'd be hopeless. She makes me look

:56:33.:56:37.

better than I am. She deserves all the credit for where we are. It is

:56:37.:56:47.
:56:47.:56:48.

quite an achievement by her. It's been something I will never forget.

:56:48.:56:52.

To be able to perform and bring pleasure to people is a real treat,

:56:52.:57:02.
:57:02.:57:06.

honestly. It is a special feeling. Well, now, they have been

APPLAUSE Have you been surprised? Beautifully said. Have you been

:59:47.:59:54.

surprised at how you have taken to this? Look, I was so nervous when I

:59:54.:59:58.

first started. I didn't think I would be able to do it. Somehow,

:59:58.:00:04.

Aliona has got me through it! She has. Wow! We have enjoyed every
