Others gushed over the Scottish singer, with one saying: “Lewis Capaldi performing on Strictly is all I need in my life,” while another added: “Lewis Capaldi on strictly. Not to be dramatic, but I’d die for that man.”

Lewis Capaldi’s performance came as singer Fleur East and Coronation Street’s Will Mellor found themselves in a dance-off.

Judges - Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Shirley Ballas - decided to save the X-factor star, which meant Will Mellor’s Strictly journey came to an end.

Fleur and her partner Coppola will join the remaining couples heading through to the finals, including Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, Helen Skelton and her partner Gorka Márquez and fan favourites Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Final will air live on Saturday at 7.15 pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
