Ashley Banjo, too, chose to vote for Richard and Carlotta.

He shared: "This is really tough, really tough. It's really close for me. But I'm going for the couple that is showing the most improvement but also this week, given me slightly more, both in the show and the skate off. I'm going to save Richard and Carlotta."

However, Christopher Dean decided to save Saira based on her save-me skate.

He told the duo: "For me, the winning couple is the roar of the tiger. Saira and Mark [Hanretty]."

As head judge this week, Jayne Torvill was given the casting vote and she opted for Saira.

She said: "One had the skating, one had the performance but the couple I'm going to save was Saira and Mark."
