Will Mellor and Fleur East were in the bottom two 

Actor Will and partner Nancy performed their Couples' Choice routine to a 90s Manchester-inspired medley, in a bid to impress the judges.

Revealing his decision, Anton said: "And now I am looking for real detail, how do I separate them? I’m really searching for something, it's such fine detail. Due to an error in a dismount from a lift, I am going to have to save Will and Nancy."

But for the remaining three judges, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and head judge Shirley Ballas it was Fleur and Vito who ranked higher.

The finalists were so sad to see Will go 

Ultimately, it was Shirley who made the final call. She said: "First of all, the British public has spoken and with respect, I take that on board. My fellow judges have decided that they don’t agree, so I have made lots of notes here, both couples were outstanding and not only today but throughout the series. I have loved both of them, this is by far, even for me Craig, the most difficult decision I feel I have had to make. Based on micro details, I have decided to save Fleur and Vito."

Next week's heavily anticipated final will air on Saturday at 7.15 where one couple will be named champion of Strictly Come Dancing 2022.
