Strictly 2022: Week 12 Semi Finals Results

The Strictly Semi Final results are in and one unfortunate couple will not be making it to the final – but who?

The semi-final elimination always seems the cruelest of all. To make it through all these weeks and to fall at the last hurdle must be galling. And this year’s Strictly competition is even harder as the remaining couples all have their own talents. 

Delighted at Molly and Carlos’s reaction to be in the Final. Fleur very sanguine about being in the Bottom Two.

Fans of Mr Pernice will be happy to see Gio in the Semi-Final – albeit with Katya dancing to the latest tune by Lewis Capaldi (who appears to have come straight from work).

Relieved that Helen is through but surprised that this is Will’s first time in the dance off. It feels that Fleur should get through unless they make mistakes…

Why Did Will Mellor leave?

It perhaps wasn’t that much of a surprise considering that Will was at the bottom of the Leaderboard after both dances last night. In particular, after that Dad-dancing Couples Choice effort, it was hard to see viewers supporting that over the other semi-finalists’ decent efforts. 

Strictly is one of these shows which can change your opinion on certain celebs. When Will was announced for the 2022 line-up we expected a cheeky-chappie persona. But instead, he revealed himself to be a far more earnest character as well as highly emotional.

With no disrespect to him and Nancy, it feels that the right four dancers have made it to the final.
