Strictly Come Dancing 2013 results: Sophie Ellis-Bextor finishes in fourth place

Sophie Ellis-Bextor (Strictly Come Dancing 2013)

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has finished tonight's Strictly Come Dancing final 2013 results in fourth place.

This evening saw Sophie competing against Abbey Clancy, Susanna Reid and Natalie Gumede for the glitterball trophy.

The couples started by reprising one of their past routines as chosen by the judges, with Susanna Reid opening the show with The Quickstep to Tommy Steele’s “Good Morning”.

Model Abbey Clancy followed with The Waltz to “Kissing You” by Des’ree while Natalie Gumede performed The Cha Cha to Boney M’s “Rasputin” and Sophie Ellis-Bextor danced the Viennese Waltz to “My Favourite Things” by Julie Andrews.

Next, each of the final four performed a unique show dance routine with their pro partners.

Abbey and Aljaz performed “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns N Roses while Natalie and Artem danced to “Steppin’ Out with My Baby” by Christina Aguilera and Tony Bennett.

Sophie and Brendan chose “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston for the backing to their routine, leaving Susanna and Kevin to perform to “Your Song” by Ewan MacGregor.

The judges marked all of the performances, with Natalie topping the scores with a total of 79, while Susanna was bottom with a combined score of 73.

However, it was the public votes alone that decided the outcome, with hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly announcing that Sophie had received the fewest number of votes from viewers.

It leaves Natalie, Abbey and Susanna going on to compete for the title of Strictly Come Dancing 2013 champ in the second live show tonight from 8:40PM on BBC One.

The remaining trio will each be reprising their favourite dance from the series before lines close and all the votes are tallied.

This evening's final will also see performances from the eleven eliminated celebs as well as singer Robbie Williams.
