Meanwhile Lauren Steadman was bottom with 54 points for her two routines after struggling with the weekend's dances. Craig thought it was a dance of two halves and felt a bit like cheating, but loved the true Viennese Waltz. I wish I could dance like you. They then watched their good luck messages from their supporters. She has a busy September ahead as she will also be defending her World Champion title on Australia's Gold Coast just a week before Strictly begins.
A great mashup of your great dances. It happens to all of us, once you go on the wrong foot. You nailed it, oh my goodness. Last night, that was Katie and Charles and his partner Karen Clifton. It was an amazing final with Stacey Dooley, Joe Sugg, Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts all battling it out to be crowned champion of the ballroom. You could have covered it up by over-acting.
That really proves the first time around wasn't a fluke. Roberts also set a record of achieving the most 40s during a series, with five. The phrasing especially I enjoyed. You gave that beautiful matador stance. Susannah was confirmed to be taking part in Strictly when she appeared on Good Morning Britain with fellow contestant Charles Venn. And your children are going to be so proud of you. They danced the American smooth to I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy from the musical South Pacific.
In the end, the panel decided to save Charles and Karen for the second week in a row. You put in emotion, storytelling and artistry. It was the second week in a row that the singer found himself in the dreaded dance-off - this time for his Back to the Future-inspired dance routine. You should think like a cat.

She had excellent arm shaping, impressive kicks and leg extensions, plenty of drive around the floor and all the drama, attack and passion you could want. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't what we expected from you.
But life should be nothing if not an adventure and I am looking forward to embracing the experience. Meanwhile, Ashley and Pasha's Foxtrot pleased the judges - they were awarded a huge score of 39!. What she said: I think Strictly, for me, has always been a chance to learn something new, not necessarily make a fool of yourself but just go out there with no pressure and learn a new skill. You are, as Darcey said, a superstar. You've brought to this show life and a style, and I am grateful for you. They scored 30 but, with the standard getting higher each week, this left them one from bottom of the leader board, just ahead of Danny and Amy on 27.

The dance: This dance started off strongly with plenty of drama and attack from Lauren, and a nicely controlled opening section. But overall, charming and beautiful. The wild beast has been let loose. Still, it wasn't enough to take them to the top of the leaderboard on Saturday night, after birthday boy Kevin and his partner Stacey secured their first nine of the series for a 60s-inspired foxtrot. That was a magical spell-bounding, exuberant, action packed comedy of a Charleston.
So, despite giving it his all, it was Seann who became the fifth celebrity to leave the competition.

Not your best dance, but a good effort. There was the first 10 of the series too! I wanted to see you have fun with this. Strictly Come Dancing has finished for another year, with Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton lifting the famous glitterball trophy. You carried on and got to the end.
The dance: This was an absolutely beautiful routine from Stacey. But it was very beautiful. Stacey and Kevin also got their highest score yet with 39 too, for their moody Paso Doble. You've challenged her to her strengths, and she pulled off a very nice routine. I would've liked more clipped head positioning. This week, she quickstepped to Don't Rain On My Parade from the musical Funny Girl alongside her partner Pasha Kovalev, earning a score of 38. At the foot of the scoreboard, Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden had a surprising stumble after scoring just 21 points for their quickstep — a fortnight after their jive nabbed them the first ten of the series.

Not my favourite from you, but such precision. The passion between you was magical. Bruno said Stacey burst into action like a firecracker and thought she looked and behaved like the spirit of the roaring 20s.
