Strictly Come Dancing 2019 week 8 results: live updates contestant news


At 7.20pm on BBC One, the next elimination of Strictly 2019 beckons as our pro-celebrity pairs find out who’s safely through to next week’s seaside special and who’s doomed to face the dreaded dance-off.

On Saturday night, Saffron Barker waltzed her way to the top of the scoreboard for the second time in four weeks. Could she and pro partner AJ Pritchard, who celebrated his 25th birthday in style, be timing their run towards the glitterball trophy?

At the foot of the scoreboard was Mike Bushell after his dance dis-ah-ster of a paso doble – with Geordie joker Chris Ramsey just above. 

As usual, the judges’ scores will now be combined with the public vote and the two couples with the lowest combined scores will dance for survival – but will viewers agree with the judges? If not, the likes of Karim Zeroual or Alex Scott could be in dance-off danger. 

We’ll be liveblogging from 7pm, providing build-up, rolling coverage, recaps, analysis and arch asides. Please join us – and join in too. You can email me on michael.hogan@ telegraph.co.uk, tweet me on @michaelhogan or leave comments at the bottom of this blog. I’ll keep an eye on them all and report the highlights here. 

Nearly time to staaaaart breaking Blackpool hearts…
