Katie Price and Russell Kane have become the first two celebrities to reach the final of this year’s Let’s Dance for Comic Relief competition.

Russell automatically received his place in the final after gaining the highest number of public votes following his performance of Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love.

It was then up to judges Graham Norton, Frank Skinner and The Inbetweeners’ Greg Davies to choose between the two acts with the next highest votes, which were Katie Price and Waterloo Road duo, Rebecca Ryan and Philip Martin-Brown,

Graham chose to save Katie, saying she had “earned her place on live pre-watershed television”. Next was Frank who said: “It’s difficult…I’ve love to see Philip [Martin Brown] do the break-dance again but I thought Katie was marvellous so I’m saving her.”

Russell and Katie, who performed to Queen’s classic I Want To Break Free, beat out stiff competition from design duo Colin and Justin who danced to Olivia Newton John’s Xanadu, Rebecca Front’s rendition of Bjork’s It’s All So Quiet, Ed Byrne’s performance of We Love To Boogie and Waterloo Road’s take on the Run DMC hit It’s Like That.

The jam-packed show also included performances by JLS, singing their new single Eyes Wide Shut, and Taio Cruz featuring Kimberley Wyatt singing Higher.

Viewers were also treated to a behind the scenes look into this year’s Red Nose Desert Trek in which a host of celebrities including Dermot O’Leary, Scott Mills, Olly Murs, Lorraine Kelly and Kara Tointon will attempt to walk 100 kilometers across the Kaisut desert in 100 degree heat in just seven days to raise money for this year’s Comic Relief.
