Bury's Strictly Come Dancing stars impressed again at the weekend to make it through to the final.

Layton Williams and Ellie Leach joined Eastenders star Bobby Brazier to make it into the final three who are in the running to win the glitterball trophy on Saturday.

Former tennis player Annabel Croft, 57, was the 10th celebrity eliminated from show after she lost out following a dance-off with Brazier, 20, and professional dancer Dianne Buswell.

Croft, whose husband died earlier in the year, thanked her dance partner Johannes Radebe and told him he had given her "a reason to get out of bed".

During the results show, the Strictly professionals performed a group number and Take That performed their new single This Life.

Bad Education actor Layton, 29, and his dance partner Nikita Kuzmin had topped Saturday night's leaderboard with a combined score of 116 points from their two dances and last week's performance - including a 40 for their Charleston, which earned a rare standing ovation from Revel Horwood.

Meanwhile, Coronation Street star Ellie, 22, and partner Vito Coppola were second on a combined 111 points, with Brazier in third on 107 and Croft fourth on 98, from the judges' votes.

Ellie said she is a “completely different person” at the semi-final stage of the BBC competition, compared with when it began in September after being paired with professional Vito Coppola.

“I think that I didn’t realise how much of a personal journey I would go on throughout Strictly, I think that I’m so much more confident in myself now,” she said.

“I think I’m starting to really believe in myself, not just in dancing, but just in life.

“I feel like I’ve actually matured a lot and I think that I’ve got a different outlook on life now which I think is really incredible.

“I think I’ve become more of like a yes person, whereas before I was a bit of a no person because kind of that fear of the unknown being scared and stuff…I think I’ve really thrown myself into this experience and been like ‘You know what Vito, you’re a professional – if you trust me to do this, then why not’.”

The remaining three couples will take to the dancefloor next week for the final time.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Final will air live on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Croft and Radebe will be joining host Fleur East on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two tonight, Monday, December 11, at 6.30pm on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
