For 99 days and nights they've been dancing, they've survived 11 eliminations and tonight Strictly Come Dancing's remaining contestants - Harry Judd, Chelsee Healey and Jason Donovan - took on the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

Len Goodman called this year's contestants "the best line-up ever" and the finalists have all proved their dancing worth, but who managed not to fall at the final hurdle?

The professional dancers opened the show Gladiator style, with the finalists riding into the ballroom on golden chariots. So much for Harry not taking his shirt off.

Harry Judd and Aliona

Judges choice - Harry took to the dancefloor first with his partner Aliona, after calling Strictly "one of the biggest experiences of [his] life".

Len said their Quickstep to Don't Get Me Wrong by The Pretenders "brilliant" and Bruno said "you came, you danced and you conquered Blackpool".

Total score: (40 out of 40)

Show dance - Jiving to Great Balls Of Fire Harry not only did a cartwheel but had a go on his drums to perfect the rockstar look. Len said: "If you were a stick of rock you'd have talent written all over you".

Total score: 37

Jason and Kristina

Judges Choice - Covered in pink feathers Jason and Kristina danced the Tango to I Will Survive. Alesha said: "It's not often we see a Tango that's fun and joyful, I loved it." Len added: "You give those other two 20 years in age but you've got the energy to match them."

Total score: 38

Show dance - The pair chose Dancin' Fool by Frank Zappa for their show dance. Commenting on the energetic comic performance Alesha said: "If this was a marathon you would have won already" and Bruno called it a "showbiz extravaganza".

Total score: 40

Chelsee Healey and Pasha

Judges Choice - Chelsee said being in the final was "the best feeling ever", before she relived her Shrek fairytale from Movies Week, jiving to I'm A Believer. Bruno called it a "premium grade jive" and Craig added "it was a complete bundle of joy".

Total score: 39

Show dance - Chelsee transformed into Beyonce, complete with big hair, for her show dance to Dreamgirls' number One Night Only. Len said: "I thought it was bright and shiny like the Blackpool illuminations". Alesha added: "The beauty of you dancing is it's totally natural."

Total score: 36
