Craig then brought out his humorous side as he told Hamza: ‘You’re everything I’m not. You spread joy to everyone.’

While Motsi added: ‘I’m going to try in the final not to cry but you broke me… You spread joy, you made us forget just for a millisecond. What ever happens tonight I want to thank you for that joy.’

It comes after the Showdance didn’t quite go to plan as after taking to the floor with their Quickstep routine to Let’s Face The Music And Dance by Irving Berlin, the pair struggled to pull off a flawless performance as they made a few mistakes.

Commenting on the dance, Shirley said: ‘It was the first time that I saw a little panic. It went wrong and it just took a few seconds, which I know felt for you like a lifetime, to get going. I applaud you for that high lift at the end which is really hard. There were a few mistakes which was unfortunate but you are a beautiful dancer.’

Craig was straightforward with his response, telling him: ‘I thought it was a little bit rocky and underwhelming if I’m honest. It did go a little bit wrong which took you off balance. It was classy and classic like yourself.’

While Motsi said: There is a lot of pressure in the final, you did choose one of the most difficult dances to dance. Most importantly you showed us you are a human, you made a mistake and you went on. The most important thing is did you touch us, did you move us, did you bring us joy and you most certainly did.’

Meanwhile, Hamza and Jowita’s first dance of the night proved somewhat ore successful, with the pair leaving both the judges and viewers thrilled as they performed their sizzling Salsa to Ecuador by Sash! featuring Rodriguez once again.

Ahead of the grand final, Helen closed the gap on bookies favourite Hamza as she was given a huge boost in the odds.

The TV presenter was given odds of 7/4 to lift the glitterball trophy, closing the gap on the wildlife cameraman who was still in front with 1/2. 

Elsewhere, it appears that both Molly and Fleur will have to dig deep to be crowned champion, with the CBeebies star tipped at 40/1, while the former X Factor favourite has odds of 66/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Hamza has led the betting for months, but the latest odds suggest he could just be pipped to the post by Helen this weekend 

It comes as Shirley Ballas has admitted sending home ‘superstar’ Will Mellor during the last week’s Strictly Come Dancing semi finals was tough.

Speaking on Friday’s This Morning the head judge, 62, said that it’s usually very clear who she should be sending home, however last week she struggled.

Will, 46, and Nancy, 31, were the latest to be axed from the Strictly dancefloor after going head-to-head against singer Fleur East, 35, and her professional partner Vito Coppola, 30, in the dance off. 

Host Alison Hammond, 47, and Dermot O’Leary, 49, failed to get the dancing queen to make any predictions about Saturday’s show, except saying it would be one of the ‘strongest ever’ finals.

Shirley explained: ‘Normally when I have to send somebody home, I’m very clear and it’s very obvious when I have to send somebody home. But I have to say, this last week sending somebody home was very very difficult’.

She continued: ‘I thought the judges were going to agree on somebody and they didn’t, and it was it was left to me. It was very very difficult because [the contestants] have all tried so hard.’ 

With Fleur, Helen Skelton, Hamza Yassin and Molly Rainford in the final, Shirley went on to describe actor Will as a ‘superstar in his own right’. 

The judge explained the judging process and what she will be keeping an eye out for on Saturday evening: ‘It is really small details and you know, you look at both couples and it becomes a preference at the end of the day’. 

She continued: ‘I’m weighing up these mistakes against these mistakes, these synchronicities against this… I have a whole list of things that perhaps the general public don’t see to come to my conclusion, which is never easy to do.’ 

Former X Factor host Dermot then asked if someone who wasn’t necessarily the best dancer but with ‘pizzaz’ may win – just like the ITV singing competition.

Shirley said: ‘Going into the final, it’ll be down to the general public but I have full faith that they will pick the right winner’. 

‘Everybody who’s made the final is a winner in their own right, I wouldn’t like to call it. The audience at home will have a voice and speak.’
