Two votes went to Molly and one to Tyler, the deciding vote was down to head judge Shirley Ballas.

She chose to save Molly and Carlos, saying: ‘Well, I agree with my fellow judges, this is probably one of the most difficult dance offs that we’ve ever had to choose.

‘Both couples were outstanding, both improved their performances but I am going to go with what I believe in, and that is a quality of movement and precision in partnering, and I am going to go with Molly and Carlos.’

Cheerio! She winked and waved towards onlookers as she climbed into the back of a car
