This weekend six remaining celebrity couples took to the dance floor for Strictly’s tenth live show, having returned to Elstree after last week’s Blackpool special. Judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse were watching each dance closely, ready to mark each performance out of ten.
Both couples performed their routines again, Saffron and AJ performed their Samba to Walking On Sunshine by Take Me To Rio Collective and Karim and Amy performed their Contemporary Couples Choice to Drops Of Jupiter by With Confidence in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.
After both couples had danced a second time the judges delivered their verdicts with a unanimous vote to save Karim and Amy.
When asked by Tess about her time on the show, Saffron said: “I’ve had the absolute time of my life and it’s all down to him. It’s been amazing. I’d like to thank AJ so much, when I look at what I was like on week one I was so embarrassed and shy. He’s really taken me out of my shell. Thank you so much for everything.”
When asked about Saffron, AJ said: “Every single week you’ve approached it with a positive mental attitude and you’ve inspired so many… on your own social media too. As a non-dancer starting from day one I’m not going to lie I was a bit scared… but performing those fantastic dances has been amazing. I’ll never ever ever forget that dance. Thank you. The best partner. Thank you. ”
Saffron and AJ will appear live on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on the sofa with Rylan Clark-Neal for their first interview live on Monday 25 November from 6.30pm on BBC Two.
