Strictly finalists prepare three dances each in quest for glitterball


Strictly star Danny Mac will again perform the samba which scored him a perfect 40 in a bid to take the crown in this weekend's final.

The Hollyoaks actor and partner Oti Mabuse became the first couple to be awarded full marks for a samba in the show's history in week 10.

Each of the three remaining contestants will perform three routines on Saturday night as they battle it out for the glitterball trophy.

They will perform their favourite dance, the judges' choice and a spectacular showdance in a bid to win the viewers' votes.

Danny and Oti's showdance will be to Adele's Set Fire To The Rain while BBC sports presenter Ore Oduba will perform to Jodi Benson's I Got Rhythm.

Former singer Louise Redknapp and partner Kevin Clifton will dance their Argentine tango to Sexteto Mayor's Tanguera which scored them 39 in week seven.

The pair will also perform a showdance to One Moment In Time by Whitney Houston.
