Wow what a night for Strictly Come Dancing as Mike Bushell and his partner Katya Jones and Catherine Tyldesley and her partner Johannes Radebe were the 2 couples in the dreaded dance off this week.

For Catherine it was the first time in the dance off and both couples performed their routines again, Mike and Katya performed their Tango to What You Waiting For by Gwen Stefani and Catherine and Johannes performed their Cha Cha to Scared Of The Dark by Steps in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.

Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Mike & Katya. Where Motsi and Bruno opted to save Catherine and Johannes.

Head Judge Shirley Ballas had the deciding vote and chose to save Mike & Katya.

Shirley said: “Well, I thought both couples really step it up a notch and this is always the most difficult decision for me, but based on a good focus, difficult content, with some really beautiful footwork in there with stronger technical skills for me, cleaner and polished. I’m going to save Mike & Katya.”

When asked by Tess about her time on the show, Catherine said: “Him, yeah, he’s like my best friend. He’s just…oooh, (referring to eye make-up) it’s waterproof…just the opportunity to work with amazing people and get critiqued off amazing people. I never thought I’d say this, I’m going to keep it up because I fell in love with it! I’ve loved every second, this man has changed my life!”

Mike and Katya will appear live on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on the sofa with Rylan Clark-Neal for their first interview live on Monday 28th October from 6.30pm on BBC Two
