Strictly's Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse plan to 'blow minds' with their showdance


Strictly's Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse have vowed to 'blow minds' with their showdance in this week's final.

The pair will be dancing three times this Saturday night as they compete for the Glitterball trophy.

Although they're the favourites to win, Danny and Oti almost never made it after appearing in the dance off last Sunday night.

Danny admitted yesterday: "I was gutted because of all the weeks because the semi-final week is the week you don't want to be there. Everyone was so good, you thought your times up.

"I just thought it was so typical, you get to the semis and it's done. We definitely deserved it at some point."

But looking back, Danny says it was all just "part of the Strictly experience" and he was glad to have "had the full whack of it"

This weekend, Danny and pro partner Oti will be performing a Showdance to “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele as well as their favourite dance, the Samba to “Magalenha” by Sergio Mendes.

Oti told It Takes Two she hoped it would be like "nothing seen before" and teased: "I hope we're going to bring some new elements of dancing on the show and everybody gets excited at home"

The pair will also be performing another previous dance chosen by the judges.

Danny didn't reveal what it was but said: "I am very happy with it, it's a great contrast and I'm so pleased I get to do it again."

Strictly Come Dancing – The Final will be live on Saturday 17th December at 6:40pm on BBC One.

The results will be live the same night as the winner is crowned.
