After both couples danced a second time, the judges rendered their verdict, with Craig Revel Horwood choosing to save Matt and Nadiya.
Craig said, “Well, the couple before me that I thought danced the best that night, and the couple I’d like to save is Matt and Nadiya.”
Motsi Mabuse also chose to save Matt and Nadiya, adding: ‘Well, that was so close, both couples made mistakes. I feel like they were on the same level, but one couple was a little bit better for me, and I’m saving Matt and Nadiya.”
Confirming the result, Anton Du Beke said: ‘Well it wasn’t a vintage dance-off, and I know exactly how they feel and I’ve been in that position myself many times and I think if you had the chance, you’d want to. go again, both of you.

“There were a lot of mistakes for both couples, I had the feeling that one couple also lost performance, so I would like to save Matt & Nadiya.”
With three votes to Nadiya and Matt, it meant they won the majority of the vote and would leave the competition anyway, but Chief Judge Shirley Ballas said she would have decided to save Kaye and Kai.
When asked if she agreed with the other judges, she said, “I didn’t, I thought a slightly better quality saved Kaye and Kai.”
Reflecting on her brief Strictly experience, Kaye admitted she had no qualms with the jury’s decision to let her go.
She said: ‘It was the right result and I made mistakes, and when it comes to that high pressure situation, that’s what happens.
“So I’m really happy for Matt and Nadiya, the only person I just feel sorry for is this amazing man [Kai]who’s been just as brilliant… It was great fun, I said my ambition was to learn to dance, and actually I’ve seen a whole new side of myself, it’s opened a door.
“It was an amazing experience and to spend time with such talented people who love the show so much was a joy!”
A disappointed Kai added, “Well, you know, only we know how much real hard work went into this. There have been a lot of ups and downs and we won’t go into them, but this lady is a trooper and I know what she’s been through in the week.
“Having this woman come out and put on the performance she did tonight really shows her character.”
He said to Kaye, “I’m proud of you, I know your girls and your significant other are proud of you, but the most important thing is that you should be proud of yourself because you’re a superstar.”
