Strictly Come Dancing finalists revealed
16 Dec 2013
Following Sunday’s result show, this year will see the first ever same-sex final after Casualty star Patrick Robinson was voted off.
The all-girls final sees model Abbey Clancy, actress Natalie Gumede, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and journalist Susanna Reid battling it out for the glitter ball trophy.
Sunday’s show found actor Patrick Robinson in the bottom two and dreaded dance-off against Susanna Reid.
The semi-finals saw the contestants perform two dancers to impress the judges and fans. Despite Susanna and her Partner Artem Chigvinstev scoring 40 for their salsa, and coming second on the leader board, it wasn’t enough for her to avoid the dance-off.
Patrick Robinson, who ended up at the bottom of the semi-finals leader board narrowly survived last week’s dance-off against Hollyoaks’s Ashely Taylor Dawson.
During the dance off Susana opted for to dance the Argentine Tango despite their Salsa scoring higher, whereas Patrick and his partner Anya Garnis went for the Waltz.
The final is expected to be tough competition with only eight points in-between the girls over the weekend.
The final takes place next weekend, which is ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour that will see finalists Abbey Clancy, Susanna Reid and Natalie Gumede taking part along with other Strictly Come Dancing contestants.
