News: Chris Ramsey Makes It Into Strictly Semis After Dance Off

Comedian Chris Ramsey and his dancing partner Karen Hauer have made it into the Strictly Come Dancing Semi-Finals next week.

But it was a close-run thing. After Saturday night's show their dance with a Dickensian theme, performing the Foxtrot to Consider Yourself from the musical Oliver, left them second from bottom with 28 points.

On Sunday night they faced a dance-off against Alex Scott and Neil Jones. The judges tied the couples at two votes each but Shirley Ballas' casting vote put Chris and Karen through.

Ramsey joked about going through to the next round on Twitter: "Going to take every fibre of my being not to make a ‘semi’ joke this week... I’ll try my best, though. But it’s going to get hard. Ah shit."
