Strictly Come Dancing semifinalists revealed
09 Dec 2013
Abbey Clancy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Natalie Gumede, Patrick Robinson and Susanna Reid are this year’s semi-finalists after Hollyoaks star Ashley Taylor Dawson was voted off.
The celebrities that will take part in the 2013 semi-final were revealed after this weekend’s dance-off saw Patrick Robinson and Ashley Taylor Dawson in the bottom two.
Saturday’s show saw a high standard of dance – and the introduction of the Swingathon, where the celebrities performed a group swing dance-off.
Patrick, and his partner Anya, found themselves having to fight for survival despite being joint top of the leader board with their Rumba and Swingathon score.
Ashley and Ola, his professional partner, landed 35 points for their Salsa but ended up with just two points in the Swingathon, which sent them to fifth place on the leader board.
The judges said that all the constants are at the standard of 8, 9 and 10s and the celebrities were sorry to see Ashley and Ola go.
During Sunday’s results show the Saturdays performed on the show.
Semi-finalists Abbey Clancy, Susanna Reid and Natalie Gumede will be taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour along with Deborah Meaden, Nicky Bryne, Ben Cohen and Mark Benton.
