Strictly Come Dancing 2019 has its finalists following Saturday night’s semi-final, which saw yet more triumphant 10s as well as Kelvin Fletcher nabbing the second perfect 40 of the series.

This year’s final will see only three couples take to the dancefloor instead of the usual four after Will Bayley sadly departed the series midway through due to a knee injury.

And there was everything to play for this weekend with each of the four remaining celebrities delivering two routines in their bid to win a final place and come within touching distance of the 2019 Glitterball trophy.

But who missed out on next week’s show – and who’s made it through to next weekend?

Here’s what you need to know…

Who left Strictly Come Dancing last night?

Sunday night’s results show saw comedian Chris Ramsey dance his last, missing out on a place in the final.

The funnyman lost out in the dance off to Karim Zeroual and dance partner Amy Dowden, after they had reprised their American Smooth and Chris and dance partner Karen Hauer had danced their rumba once again.

And after both had performed again the judges chose unanimously to send Karim and Amy through to the final.

Afterwards Chris – who broke down in tears after his performance on Saturday night – said: ‘Wow, I am just very proud of myself.

‘I never ever thought I would make it past week two, genuinely I had no expectations whatsoever, I am astounded and I’ve got to thank Karen, she is just amazing and so patient it’s crazy! She is awesome. I had sleepless nights in the build up and there is no-one else who can have made it what it has been.’

Meanwhile Karen said of Chris: ‘This has been a giggle fest. Thank you judges for being so amazing to us.

You are an amazing family man who I admire and you are awesome and I appreciated you literally from week one, not knowing how to walk, and now you are a semi finalist and you have made all of us proud and have inspired all of us and I want to thank you for being awesome.’

The final will see each of the remaining couples perform their favourite routine from the series, as well as one chosen by the judges – and of course their showdance.
