Craig Revel Horwood said of the couples: “I think both couples stepped it up a notch, I mean Matt, you went absolutely crazy in it, I loved it, and Kym, you were really amazing in it. But that couple, I want to save are Kym and Graziano.”

Motsi Mabuse agreed to save Kym and Graziano, while Anton Du Beke added: “I just want to say that you should both be thrilled with the way you performed in dance-off, it is the most pressured of situations.

“Matt – that’s your best performance in the whole series, you should be really proud of yourself. But the pair with the higher technical ability, I think for me, will go through, are Kym and Graziano.”

Although her vote ultimately did not count, head judge Shirley Ballas revealed that she would have chosen the same couple as her colleagues.

After his elimination, Matt said of his partner Nadiya: “This lovely lady next to me, a world champion with all that patience. I’m very honored to have danced with you.

“And to everyone that’s still around, I love you guys, break up.”

Nadiya replied: “First of all, I am 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.”
