Jodie Prenger and Lee Nelson make it to the final in the third round of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief

Jodie Prenger and Lee Nelson are the fifth and sixth acts to stomp their way into the final of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief, after impressing viewers with their show stopping performances in the third show of the series.

Hosts Alex Jones and Steve Jones announced that viewers had voted Jodie Prenger through to the final on Saturday 9th March, after her spectacular performance of ‘Word Up’.

Runners up Lee Nelson and Vanessa Feltz then faced this week’s panellists, Radio 1’s Greg James, Arlene Phillips and comedian Lee Mack, who had the difficult decision of choosing the sixth act to go through to the final after their performances of ‘Swan Lake’, and ‘If I Could Turn Back time’ respectively.

Panellists Lee Mack and Arlene Phillips both voted for Lee Nelson giving him the majority vote and a place in the final alongside Jodie Prenger.

When announcing his decision. Lee Mack said: “Well it’s a very important thing we’re deciding that could change the face of the planet. Lee was brilliant. Vanessa was so brilliant I thought I was watching Cher. In fact I would go as far as to say it was Cher and Cher alike. If I have to give one of my votes, it’s a tight thing, but I’m going to go with Lee.” Greg James said: “There’s so much going through my head…I know how popular Lee’s dance was in here and at home, but I can’t stop thinking about you Vanessa Feltz. I’m just trying to think about the one I want to see again…I’m going to go with Vanessa Feltz.”

Arlene Phillips said: “You are asking me to choose between channelling the 80s and a future contender for the Royal Ballet. Can’t I just have them both please? I’m edgy…and my edge is edging for Lee.”

The viewers’ choice Jodie Prenger then closed the show with an encore of ‘Word Up’.

Tonight’s show was the final heat and saw Ore Oduba and Sonali Shah, Nina Conti, and Vanessa Feltz eliminated.

There were also performances from Justin Bieber who sang an acoustic version of his single ‘All Around the World’ as well as from Nicole Scherzinger, who gave a world exclusive performance of her new single ‘Boomerang’.

In next week’s final this week’s winners Jodie Prenger and Lee Nelson will compete against the winners from the first and second heats, Tim Vine, The Soap Stars (Ricky Groves, Claire Sweeney, Natalie Cassidy and Dean Gaffney), Antony Cotton and Katherine Ryan, in a bid to be crowned Let’s Dance for Comic Relief champion.
