This weekend four remaining celebrity couples took to the dance floor for Strictly’s twelfth live show and semi-final, with the final now next week.
Nobody wanted to go out at this late stage of the competition but sadly it was lights out for one pair.
Both couples performed their choice of routines from Saturday’s show again, Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer performed their Rumba to Don’t Watch Me Cry by Jorja Smith and Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden performed their American Smooth to Sweet Caroline in a bid to impress the judges and make it to the Grand Final next week.
All 4 judges chose to save Karim putting an end to Chris Ramsey’s Strictly journey.
When asked by Tess about his time on the show, Chris said: “Wow, I am very proud of myself. I never ever thought I would make it past week two, genuinely I had no expectations whatsoever, I am astounded and I’ve got to thank Karen, she is just amazing and is just amazing and so patient its crazy! She is awesome. I had sleepless nights in the build up and there is no-one else who can have made it what it has been.”
Dancing their way into the final is:
- Karim and Amy.
- Emma and Anton.
- Kelvin and Oti.
The remaining three couples will take to the dancefloor next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns for the Grand Final on Saturday 14 December on BBC One.
Chris and Karen will appear live on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on the sofa with Rylan Clark-Neal for their first interview live on Monday 9th December from 6.30pm on BBC Two.
