Strictly judge hails ‘extremely close’ dance off as fourth celebrity is eliminated – Yahoo News UK


The latest celebrity to be eliminated from
Sunday night’s results show (22 October) saw the fourth contestant sent home from the competition following the previous evening’s episode, which saw nerves affect many of the stars.
It was presenter and comedian Eddie Kadi and his professional partner Karen Hauer who left the BBC competition after a tense dance off with Zara McDermott and Graziano Di Prima.
All four judges opted to save former Love Island contestant and documentary host McDermott, with Motsi Mabuse calling the result “extremely close”.
Craig Revel Horwood said that McDermott switched up her American Smooth more than Kadi’s Samba, stating: “For me the quality of dance in this couple was far superior and the couple I would like to save is Zara and Graziano.”
Mabuse added: “For me, it was extremely close. The quality was actually very, very close. It came down to details and I would love to save Zara and Graziano.”
Anton Du Beke said the dance off was “excellent”, adding: “I thought both couples danced very, very well but for me with a slightly cleaner technique, I’d like to save Zara and Graziano.”
Head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have opted to save Zara if she’d had to give a deciding vote.
Speaking about the result, Kadi said: “I’ve really enjoyed this, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do – I love dancing. This has been the highest moment of my career. It’s the happiest I’ve ever been.”
The Congolese comedian continued: “More importantly, this little African boy, I just wanted my culture to shine. Everything I stand for, when it comes to my comedy, when it comes to my presenting, is based on my culture, is based on my upbringing and I wanted that to shine most importantly.”
He also praised Hauer, who said: “You are a treasure, I’m going to miss you. We’re going to take up Congolese dancing.
“I just want to thank you so much for being so positive and bringing such light and smiling, just a beauty to all of us, I want to thank you so much.”

Homeowners can now apply for an increased grant to install a heat pump, as the government changes the scheme amid criticism that the rollout of the eco-friendly form of heating has been too slow. The additional support could make the cost of installing a heat pump cheaper than that of the average gas boiler for some households, the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) said. The change, announced by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak last month as part of his "new approach to achieving net zero", means the grant available under the boiler upgrade scheme for air source heat pumps will be increased by 50%, from £5,000 to £7,500.
