The four finalists now face the first public vote. The couple with the fewest viewer votes, and leaving, is Dani & Vincent.

Now the final three couples dance their favourite dance from the series.

Starting with Denise & James, dancing the Charleston. With an Egyptian flavour, this was the dance that Denise enjoyed the most, and they danced it immaculately. Len said “Denise, I will never forget your Charleston.” Bruno said “that was world class.” Craig repeated what he’d said before, that it is the best Charleston and Darcey said the same, “you are a true professional.” Well, hasn’t that been the criticism all the way along ?

They score 40

Kimberley & Pasha have chosen their Tango for their last dance. A fight in front of the judges; animalistic, fierce, perfect. Bruno called Kimberley “strictly irresistible.” Craig said “that was ten times better than the last time you danced it.” Darcey enjoyed the moody, tense atmosphere “you could win medals with that pout, babe.” Len saw the improved technique and loved the dance.

They score 40

Louis & Flavia dance the last dance of this Strictly series, and they’ve chosen their Charleston, which was such a turning point for Louis in terms of his performance. Dr Smith returns ! Bit of timing out of sync at the start but they are quickly back into the routine that was so full of character and daring jumps the first time. Craig loved the routine and personality and the aerial cart-wheel. Darcey said “that dance was brilliant.” Len  said “that was a gold medal performance.” Bruno said “just what the doctor ordered. An uplifting tonic to finish off this incredible night. More accomplished than ever. You’ve proven that you’ve got it, and you can do it.”

They score 39

The 10 original celebrities return for the final, and they talk to Tess about their highlights from the series. They’ll also be back together again for one last dance.

Robbie Williams performs his latest single, Different. Aliona and Artem dance as he sings.

Finally the results are in, after 11 eliminations and 100 dances, the Strictly Come Dancing Champions 2012 are : Louis & Flavia
