This weekend, the remaining five contestants took to the dance floor to try and earn a spot in the upcoming final. With each star performing two routines as opposed to just one, the pressure for the celebrities was on. Wildlife cameraman Hamza Yassin and his partner Jowita, were thrilled with their routines, which put them top of the leaderboard.
For the Strictly semi-final, each celebrity had to take on two different routines in order to try to impress the four judges and viewers at home.
With each of the remaining stars receiving high marks consistently throughout the series, the bar was raised for each dancing duo.
Although it was one celebrity in particular who wowed Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.
Hamza took to the dancefloor with Jowita to perform both a Charleston and Waltz which earned him a total score of 76 after getting a 39 and 37.
It looked as though the wildlife cameraman was also pleased with his Waltz as after he ended the routine he whispered a sweet message to his dancing partner.
Holding their final position as the crowd applauded, he triumphantly said: “We did it! We did it.”
Before embracing him in a big hug, Jowita smiled as she nodded her head in agreement as he continued to tell her they did it.
Receiving feedback for his Waltz, Motsi told the show’s host Tess Daly she believed he’d done enough to earn a place in the final.
She said: “For me, you are the man of the night.
“That Waltz, actually we need more of Hamza I would say, more people like Hamza.
“Beautiful, soft, founded, pure, authentic and Jowita and you to watch is just a gift I enjoyed so much.”
Echoing her praise, head judge Shirley confessed she’s given him more 10s than anybody else.
Speaking about his Waltz after they receive their feedback, Hamza said: “This is Jowita’s favourite ballroom dance.
“To be able to do that and just dance our last ballroom is something special for sure.”
Topping the leaderboard with a combined total of 76, CBBC actress Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu follow close behind with a score of 75.
Although the dancing duo were recently in the dance-off, they got a near-perfect score of 39 for their second routine of the evening.
After their Paso Doble, Shirley Ballas was up on her feet as she praised the actress for surviving in the bottom two many times.
She added: “I’ve been in this industry a long long time and studied this art, your promenade, your counter promenade at the beginning, one of the most difficult steps ever to portray, you did it with ease.
“You got the temperatures absolutely right, that is one of the best Paso Dobles I’ve seen.”
