Strictly Come Dancing spoilers follow.
The fourth week of Strictly Come Dancing was electrifying, with Hamza Yassin scoring the highest grade of the series so far with 39 for his joyous Salsa.
Tyler West continued his good form, securing two more 10s for his garage-infused Couple’s Choice dance. Fleur Eastfresh from survived last week’s dance-offmade the most of her reprieve and scored 38 for a sublime Argentine tango.
As always, the last dance was for a couple, with Sunday’s dreaded dance-off consisting of two couples who have the fewest public votes.
This week’s (October 16) elimination saw Matt Goss and Kym Marsh in the bottom two; Matt, who is a partner with Nadia, was at the bottom of the rankings with 20 for his Jive. Kym, who is paired with Graziano, was in the middle of the pack on the night, scoring 31 for her Samba.
After both couples tried to sway the judges one last time, that was it Matt and Nadia who left with the show, with Kym and Graziano securing votes from all four judges.
They all agreed that Matt gave his best performance in the dance, but concluded that Kym had the greater “technical quality.”
On questions from the host Tess Daly of his time on the show, Matt said: “It’s been an extraordinary experience, being in America for 25 years. Thank you judges for your openness; you’ve helped me in many ways.
“My posture – Anton, I’m more aware of it. This lovely lady [Nadiya] next to me, a world champion with all that patience. I’m very honored to have danced with you guys and everyone who’s still around, I love you, smash it guys.”
Nadiya was then asked if she had any words for her partner, before saying: “Firstly, I’m so grateful that I got to teach and dance with a music icon.
“But more important than this, I got the privilege to get to know Matt for who you really are. Not many people know you and you are a beautiful soul, a very kind person and a true gentleman.”
Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturdays and Sundays on BBC One, while the spin-off shows Strictly: It takes two airs weeknights on BBC Two. Both programs also stream on BBC iPlayer.
