After both couples had danced a second time, the judges delivered their verdicts and with two votes going to Molly and one to Tyler, the deciding vote was down to head judge Shirley Ballas.

She chose to save Molly and Carlos, saying: ‘Well, I agree with my fellow judges, this is probably one of the most difficult dance offs that we’ve ever had to choose.

‘Both couples were outstanding, both improved their performances but I am going to go with what I believe in, and that is a quality of movement and precision in partnering, and I am going to go with Molly and Carlos.’

When asked by host Tess Daly about his time on the show, Tyler said: ‘I’m more than a two step now! When you watch the show at home, you wonder what it must be like to dance on it, it’s everything and more, it’s changed my life.’

‘This show has changed my life in the sense it’s given me confidence, a new found family, every dancer, everyone in hair and make-up, costume.’

The remaining seven couples will take to the dancefloor next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 26th November at 7.15pm, with the results show on Sunday 27th November at 6pm on BBC One.
