Contestants of the Universal Jump compete for a place in the final

Hamza Yassin overcame close competition from Molly Rainford to top the Serious Dance leaderboard in the semi-finals of the competition.

The remaining five celebrities, each topping the charts during their time on the BBC One programme, performed two dance moves to claim their spot in next week’s final.

The dance program has been moved from Saturday to Sunday this week due to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, in which England lost to France.

Wildlife cinematographer Yassin received 39, the highest overall score of the night, for his Scotland-themed Charleston to Pencil Full Of Lead film by Paolo Nutini with partner Jowita Przysta.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood said his lifts were “absolutely insanely spectacular”, while lead judge Shirley Ballas said: “You make everything look so light, airy, it can be powerful. strong but never heavy, I like it.”

However, his second performance, a waltz in Burt Bacharach’s What The World Needs Now, failed to make the same impression on Ballas, who noticed mistakes she “never had” see him suffer.”

Despite scoring 37, Yassin began to shed tears after teammate Przysta said: “When I first met you, I asked you for faith and energy and you gave me so much more.

“Seeing you step out of your comfort zone every day, giving me 120% every time… you jump from your heart – thanks for that.”

Singer-actress Rainford is just one point behind Yassin in the rankings after her “absolutely amazing” paso double with 2WEI’s Survivor featuring Edda Hayes.

The judges, who gave her 39 points, said the song was suitable for the 21-year-old, who survived four dances during her time on the show.

“You’re a survivor, you’ve been in that second place so many times,” Ballas said. I’ve been in this industry for a long, long time and have studied this art… it’s one of the best paso dobles I’ve ever seen.”

Anton Du Beke apologized to Rainford because he didn’t think she would be able to complete the dance. “I was wrong,” he said.

The victory dance followed her emotional smooth American song with Adele’s Easy On Me with a score of 36.

After the dance, professional partner Carlos Gu revealed he was a huge fan of Adele – showing off a tattoo on his wrist dedicated to the singer.

The judges also gave actor Will Mellor 39 points for his pairing choice dance, who dedicated it to showing nostalgia for his hometown of Manchester alongside co-star Nancy Xu.

The 46-year-old actor has performed a variety of 1990s music – including Happy Mondays’ Step On. Bez from Happy Mondays was spotted waving her maracas in front of the audience.

Judge Motsi Mabuse said the dance was a “return” after his disappointing paso double against the Taalbi brothers’ Uccen and DWTS – in which he scored 32.

Ballas told him that “fundamental fundamentals” were missing from the dance and that the cape he used as props needed to be properly swung, not used “as a scarf.” deer neck”.

Mellor, who had a wardrobe malfunction during the dance with his pants button undone, said he “felt so trash” after his performance.

He was at the bottom of the chart after all the couples had danced.

Meanwhile, Du Beke told Fleur East, 35, that she had “exactly the night you want to have before the final”, impressing with Fiorello’s Charleston to Tu Vuo’ Fa L’Americano.

The radio DJ and singer, who practiced for 47 hours this week, was praised by her partner Vito Coppola: “For me, Fleur is one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life. life. She is so humble.

“She didn’t know but she saved me from the hard times I went through, thank you. She is very brave but humble, she never says no…she is very grateful. I’m very proud of you.”

The comments came after she opened the show with a paso doble of Moloko’s The Time Is Now, which scored 35.

Meanwhile, Blue Peter and Countryfile host Helen Skelton, 39, was praised for her “dreamy” waltz in Celine Dion’s Only One Road.

Mabuse said she thought the dance was “magical” while Du Beke said it was “beautiful, soft and romantic” – scoring 35 points.

Skelton then performed the Argentine tango of Here Comes The Rain Again by Eurythmics with partner Gorka Marquez.

After the dance, Marquez said of her partner: “For me, you are an extraordinary person, an inspirational person. Be positive with a smile, I think you have inspired so many people, starting with me, all the way to the whole nation.”

The series’ final results show will air on Mondays at 8:15 p.m. with a performance by Lewis Capaldi and a team number featuring Revel Horwood.
