Anita missed out on reaching the Strictly grand final next week after losing out to Katie in the dance-off.

Judges Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman voted to save Katie, with Craig Revel Horwood was the only judge to save Anita.

"I came to Strictly having never danced before and I love this programme and thought let's give it a go," said Anita following her exit. "Little did I know just how difficult it is and how wonderful it is! I've had the most incredible time, this man is a slave driver, he's beautiful but he's also got the most creative mind.

"Honestly I've just had the best time. Thank you to all the judges, everything you say, you're brilliant. And to all my amazing friends and all four of you, I can't wait to watch the final. You are all sensational dancers and I can't believe I have managed to get this far with the calibre of dancing, you are all incredible!"

Next Saturday will see two live shows for Strictly Come Dancing's final as the four celebrities compete for the Glitter Ball trophy.

In the first show, which will air at 6.35pm on BBC One, all four finalists will perform two dances - the judges' choice dance from the series and their show dance.

The live results show will air at 9pm and one couple will be eliminated from the competition. The remaining three couples will then go on to perform their favourite dance from the series.

The public vote will determine which couple will be crowned the Strictly Come Dancing champion of 2015.

The finalists are: Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice; Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani; Katie Derham and Anton Du Beke; and Kellie Bright and Kevin Clifton.
