Saturday’s show saw Bill and Oti, HRVY and Janette, Jamie and Karen and Maisie and Gorka perform three times to win viewers’ votes, the Judges Pick, their Showdance and their favourite dance of the series.
HRVY and Janette were up first with their festival-themed performance, taking the Strictly ballroom to Glastonbury following a year when much of the nation’s live shows were cancelled, and once again came close to perfection with 29 out of 30.

The pair left the panel gasping for breath with their high-octane showcase, with Shirley Ballas saying: ‘Congratulations to Janette for making your first final, you squeezed every last drop of anything to do with dance out of this young man!’
After receiving their score, Janette fought back tears as she praised her partner HRVY for keeping her spirits up during such unprecedented times.
Janette and HRVY have been breaking records on the show and earlier in the series they got a perfect score of 30 for their ‘unbelievable’ Couple’s Choice routine.
The result made history as it is the first time a contestant has got full marks for a routine on week six of the competition.
It was reported on Friday that Camilla would be making a surprise appearance during the final in a pre-recorded clip,

‘They said she would be happy to do anything, so when they asked her to film a cameo for the final, she leapt at the chance.’
They added: ‘She thanked Strictly for helping her get through the hell of 2020 and adding a bit of much-needed cheer.’
The source also claimed that Camilla ‘votes every week’ and has been ‘quite open’ to friends and family about her favourite contestant.
Although Camilla is said to have politely ‘declined’ to name her favourite when asked during her alleged video cameo, with ‘everyone speculating’ it is comedian Bill Bailey, 55.
