Strictly Come Dancing 2023 results and spoilers: Layton tops semi-final scoreboard


Here’s a spoiler-filled recap of tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing 2023 semi-final performances and scores.

Last week there was no one who left Strictly Come Dancing after Nigel Harman’s unplanned exit.

It meant all four remaining celebs went through to this week’s semi-final. This saturday each couple performed not one but two routines in a bid to impress the judges and audience at home – and reach next week’s all important grand final.

Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse were on hand to give their latest judgement before voting lines opened for viewers to back their favourite.

The marks from their two routines were added to last week’s judges marks to create a combined leaderboard.

Who will be voted off?

As ever, the judges’ marks are only one half of the story.
