With the Strictly trophy in sight, Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly invited the seven remaining couples to take to the dance floor in a bid to impress the judges – Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli & Craig Revel Horwood – and the viewers at home

The judges’ scores were combined with the results of the viewers’ votes to decide the lowest scoring two couples. When all the votes were combined, Michael Vaughan & Natalie Lowe and Nicky Byrne & Karen Hauer became the next two couples to face the dreaded dance-off.

After both couples had performed for a second time the judges delivered their verdicts:

Craig chose to save Nicky saying: “Well this couple were absolutely sensational, the second time round. That couple was Nicky & Karen

Darcey chose to save Nicky saying: “Well they both upped their game tonight. It’s really difficulty, but I’m going to save Nicky & Karen

Bruno also chose to save Nicky saying: “Well I really have to go for the couple who for me had the licence to thrill… and that was Nicky & Karen

With this unanimous vote, it meant that Michael Vaughan became the eighth celebrity to leave the competition.

Michael said “I’ve had a ball. Nine weeks ago I had never been on a shiny floor, and I’ve got to December. September, October, November and still dancing in December. I’ve drained every ouce of dance ability out of my body because of this lady… everything about this show, the judges and everyone backstage, all the contestants have been great, I’ve got new friends that I’ve made for life. Nicky thoroughly deserved that win, he wiped the floor with me! I’ve had a ball, and the real winner for me is this one [Natalie]. She got me to the ninth week, which is quite remarkable.”

And Natalie reflected “Words can’t describe how incredible you are. Thank you so much for making this dream come true. I’m sorry I couldn’t have taken you further.”
