Let’s Dance: last two finalists confirmed!

Bill stars Lisa Maxwell and Patrick Robinson have won the third round of Let’s Dance For Comic Relief, earning a place in next week’s final.

The pair received the most votes from the public for their interpretation of Riverdance on the charity show, in which celebrities recreate famous dance routines from film and theatre.

Also joining them in the grand final are Denise Lewis and Martin Offiah, who impressed the judges with their reinterpretation of a routine from Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Bombay Dreams.

The pair join four other acts who have already made it to the final on March 14.

Robert Webb and Dick and Dom were voted through in the first week of the show, while Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness, and comedienne Jo Brand made it through last Saturday.

Lisa and Maxwell wowed the judging panel – which this week featured Strictly Come Dancing finalist Lisa Snowdon and comedian Dara O’Briain alongside regular Anton du Beke – with their take on the classic Irish routine.

“The hair stood up on the back of my neck,” Anton told the pair. “You had everything in it…what a number!”

“It’s incredibly easy to do Riverdance badly,”added Dara, “but you didn’t, you did it brilliantly.”

Other acts taking part in Saturday’s show included TV prankster Dom Joly, who delivered his own spin on MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This, Fern Britton dancing to Singin’ In The Rain and Zoe Ball and Madness frontman Suggs recreating the dance competition scene from cult film Pulp Fiction.

Veteran newsreader Angela Rippon also appeared, looking unrecognisable under a curly blonde wig as she performed a routine to Hey Big Spender from the musical Sweet Charity.

The judges’ vote went to Denise and Martin over Fern Britton after they were revealed to be the next two most popular acts of the night.
