The standard of dancing in this series has been pretty good, even if Jerry Hall did only promenade and Victoria Pendleton spent all eight weeks looking desperate to get on her bike and go. So those hoping for entertaining Ann Widdecombe-style “elephantine galumphing”, Russell Grant panto-capers or John Sergeant “pig in Cuban heels” stomping will have been disappointed.
And some of the dancing has been sublime. Denise Van Outen, Kimberley Walsh, Louis Smith and Dani Harmer have consistently given us marvellous performances, and for that reason I am crossing my fingers they’ll all be in the final. Because for the first time in Strictly’s history there will be four couples, not three, competing tonight.
For some reason they didn’t go through with a double elimination last week after all. As always with the final the judges can say whatever they like, it doesn’t matter. Their votes count for nothing, so it’s down to viewers to decide who will be waltzing off with the title. The results are announced at 8.50pm tonight.
Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly present the eagerly anticipated final, the climax of a series that has seen slips, trips, a flying bicycle and even dancing on the judges' table. There has also been plenty of bickering between the fearsome foursome, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell, while the celebrities faced their demons on the dance floor to tackle a range of ballroom and Latin routines. Tonight will be no less daunting, with the show dance offering the remaining hopefuls Dani, Louis, Denise and Kimberley the chance to include lifts, tricks and signature moves in a bid to win over the voting public, while the judges are on hand to give their verdicts on the performances. The results are at 8.50pm.
