Former Corrie actress Michelle later added: "Goodluck tonight @MarkWright_ and @karen_hauer so proud of u both. I've got everything crossed for u. Please everyone get behind them. xx"

Mark admitted he was "so nervous" ahead of his semi-final routines with professional dancer Karen Hauer.

He told fans: "I know I'm against it and I'm the underdog but now you have got me this far pleeeeeeease make my dream come true and get me to final."

And it turned out to be a dramatic night for Mark and Karen, when Karen was left in tears after "letting Mark down".

After performing a smooth rumba to Eva Cassidy's 'Fields Of Gold', judge Len Goodman admitted: "It needed more hip action and recognisable rumba, it's not your fault Mark, it was Karen's choreography."

But hard to please Craig Revel Horwood loved it and gave the performance a rare nine!

Earlier on in the night, the couple danced the Viennese Waltz to 'I Got You Babe' by Sonny and Cher.
