Kevin Clifton has just made Strictly Come Dancing history


Kevin Clifton has made Strictly Come Dancing history after reaching a fourth final, a record for one of the show's pros.

The news was revealed on spin-off It Takes Two last night as Kevin and his latest partner Louise Redknapp celebrated making it to the end of the show.

However despite getting to the final each year he's been on the show, Kevin has never won.

"What usually happens is we make it to the final and then come second, so if that happens this week it's totally my fault, not Louise's," said Kevin on the BBC Two spin-off show. "It'd be lovely to win for Louise, I think she deserves it.


"It's not about me, it's about her and she's been amazing all series."

Meanwhile, Louise quipped she was "relieved" to have kept Kevin's reputation for making the finals intact.

In fact, the pair have sailed through each week.

The singer is the only one of the final four celebrity contestants to have never been in the bottom two, but the pressure is on for her to topple favourite Danny Mac on Saturday night.

In one of three dances, Louise and Kevin will be performing a Showdance to “One Moment in Time” by Whitney Houston in a bid to lift the glitterball trophy.

Louise's pro partner Kevin teased: "She is being Louise Redknapp, the dance is about her story on Strictly and the way she's developed from being scared at the beginning to growing in confidence. The dance is all about Louise."

Louise herself added: "It's so different to anything we've done throughout the series, it's a million miles away from anything else. It's nice to go out and do something completely different.

Louise and Kevin’s second dance will be their favourite choice, a reprise of their Argentine Tango to “Tanguera” by Sexteto Mayor.

"It's the firs time I've felt quite involved in a routine and I understand how important it was to put a character into it," Louise said.

"I think it was the turning point of our series," added Kevin, "She came out that week and gave everything, it was a real turning point that week."

Strictly Come Dancing's final air on BBC One this Saturday night, LIVE from 6:40PM.

There will be no separate results show, either on the Saturday or Sunday, with the winner revealed straight after the performances.
