Greg opened up to Tess about his experience on the show saying, “It’s been one of the most of incredible things in my life. I’ve been very lucky in my life, I’ve done some amazing things but this is truly one of the best things I’ve done. I’ve much such a good friend here.

Natalie added, “You are an amazing man, you’ve never had any dance experience and you got out there and you’ve just shown the world that you can dance. Honestly this has been the most incredible experience of my life performing and dancing every Saturday night with you; I wouldn’t have changed it for the world. Sorry I couldn’t get you any further.”

The results show tonight also included musical performances from Rick Astley and Simple Minds.
