Judge Bruno Tonioli believes the 'Strictly Come Dancing' finale this weekend (22.12.12) will be unmissable and gripping television
Bruno Tonioli says the 'Strictly Come Dancing' final will be "sensational".
The outspoken judge can't wait for Saturday's live final (22.12.12.) which will see one of the four finalists - Denise Van Outen, Louis Smith, Dani Harmer and Kimberley Walsh - ballroom dance their way to victory by performing a showdance, a routine chosen by the judges and their own favourite dance of the series.
Speaking on 'Strictly - It Takes Two', he enthused: "The final is going to be sensational. How can you call it? This final is unmissable television. Hopefully nobody will fall on their bum! The showdance ... that is the one that will nail it."
Curvy contestant Lisa Riley - who was eliminated in Sunday's (16.12.12) semi-final - has no hard feelings about being booted out of the competition and claims she feels like the real winner because the show has changed her life for the better.
She laughed: "I can't walk four paces without people shouting, 'Give us a twirl Riley'. To perform with Robin [Windsor] has been mega. It's flipped my whole life upside down. I feel in our way we've won.
"There's not one negative thing about us doing the show. I want all my friends to do 'Strictly', it's the best experience ever."
Lisa is backing her favourite "double Ds", Denise and Dani, to win the ITV1 show.
