Surviving in more controversial fashion this week was The X Factor underdog Honey G. Following the singing contest's movies week the IT worker turned comedy hip hop phenomenon was relegated to the sing-off in the public vote.
But it was Greg Rutherford and Claudia Fragapane who landed in the bottom two and had to face the dreaded dance off.
After the couples danced, their fate was in the hands of the judges.
The Olympic long jumper and his partner, Natalie Lowe, ended up in the danceoff alongside the gymnast Claudia Fragapane and her partner, AJ Pritchard, but the judges opted to save Fragapane.
Darcey Bussell explained her decision: "It's really tough to see both these couples in the dance-off and they did such a better performance tonight, but the couple I would like to save for the stronger technique: Claudia and AJ". I have great respect for [Rutherford and Lowe], but the couple I'd like to save is: "Claudia and AJ".
"No doubt the judges will be as fair, kind and thoughtful as me (especially the charming Craig Revel Horwood)".
