Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley thanks public for support

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Lisa Riley has thanked the public for keeping her in Strictly Come Dancing 2012 for so long.

Despite some low scores, the Emmerdale actress has yet to be in the dance off.

Last week's fusion challenge saw Lisa tested and she confessed she'd be out of the contest were it not for the public.

She said: "I did enjoy it a little bit but I made a whopper of a mistake and I felt terrible. I came out with my head down and said sorry about eight billion times to Robin.

"But everywhere we go people are so supportive, I was crying in the results show thinking we're going to go but the public saved us."

And Lisa and Robin are now hoping the public will continue to support them to get the through to the final.

Lisa said: "It'd be amazing to get to the final, more than anything, it'd be a dream come true. From start to finish it's been incredible and it's all thanks to Robin."

Robin added: "Every week she goes out there and excels, every single person loves her, she's just amazing, to go out at this stage of the competition would be such a shame, we are almost there and want to cross that line and make the final."
