COLNE actress Natalie Gumede survived a dance-off with Casualty star Patrick Robinson to make it into the finals of Strictly Come Dancing.

The ex-Coronation Street star was saved by the judges last night, making the final an all-female affair for the first time.

Sophie Ellis Bextor, Abbey Clancy and Susanna Reid also all made it through.

Saturday's semi-final saw each couple perform two dance routines.

In spite of getting four 10s for her salsa and ending joint top of the leaderboard, Natalie and her professional partner Artem Chigvintsev found themselves in the bottom two for the first time in the series after the viewers’ votes were added.

Natalie, who attended Park High School in Colne, survived the dreaded dance-off but the Lancashire lass may need your votes more than ever if she wants to win the Strictly trophy on Saturday.
