Strictly finalists hide their nerves as they get ready for final

The Strictly Come Dancing finalists were all smiles as they prepared to battle it out at the show final.

Louise Redknapp, 42, Danny Mac, 28, and Ore Oduba, 30, will be competing for the coveted glitterball on Saturday night.

The trio grinned as they arrived separately for a press conference at BBC Broadcasting House, in advance of the last show in the series.

Mother-of-two Louise wrote on Twitter that she wanted to “#dancelikenobodyswatching”.

Ore arrived at the press conference with his dance partner Joanne Clifton.

He sounded sad about the show coming to an end.

The three will perform their favourite dance, the judges’ choice, and a spectacular show dance, in a bid to win the viewers’ votes on Saturday.

Fans will also be treated to group performances, musical moments and surprises as the hit series draws to a close.
