For their first dance, Lottie and Pasquale danced the Quickstep to Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett’s duet It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).
For their second dance, Lottie and Pasquale teamed up with Ryan McShane for a Cha-Cha-Cha to Riton x Oliver Heldens’ Turn Me On.
Lottie described the win as “life changing.”
“This journey has been the best thing I have ever said ‘yes’ to. Getting to meet these people, this man…” she said emotionally.
Tonight’s show was set to be the semi-final, with the national broadcaster choosing to push the final ahead by one week to protect the health of staff and crew amid the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Presenter Jennifer Zamparelli revealed that tonight’s show was shot with “a closed set. No audience. Limited staff.”
“Straight to final. It’s gonna be a weird one but let’s bring some much needed entertainment to people at home.”
Nathan Carter provided the live entertainment on the night.
