The showdances in the Strictly final are, as the name suggests, the ones where competitors really go all-out – full of dance, character, chemistry and… crying?
While Ore Oduba’s showdance got the first 40 of the final – and a standing ovation from Len Goodman – it was Louise Redknapp’s 38-point masterpiece that moved Bruno Tonioli to tears.
He said of their dance: “The best lift was the one you gave to my heart,” and it was a sentiment shared with viewers.
