A-maz-ing! After the success of last week’s strictly who thought it could get better. But it did! The atmosphere was brilliant on Saturday night and the dancing was incredible. 6 couples took to the stage and all 6 deserved to get through to the final. Unfortunately we could only take three through. The three  couples who will be joining last week’s dancers are Team Morgan – Darren Morgan and Aisleen Morgan, Team SyCo – Simon Walsh and Colleen Murphy and Team Twinkle Toes – Brian Fitzpatrick & Aisling McMullan.

Well done to the other three couples though. Micéal Haughian and Natasha Cairns, Grainne McCann and Gearoid Conhuir MacCaerbhaille and Paddy McCann and Roisin McGreevy. It was
