Anton added: ‘When these two couples danced these dances last night, I gave them the same mark. Watching them tonight, they both made mistakes, but the couple who pushed through with their routine in a stronger way is Adam and amanbola Katya.’
Battling it out: Comedian Judi, 41, and her partner Graziano Di Prima, 27, landed in the dance-off against swimmer Adam Peaty, 26, and Katya Jones, 32
