Here we are with the third part in my four part guide where I look at each of the finalists and their Strictly journeys so far. As always I run this series in the order of qualification for the final and so we continue with Helen and Gorka
As it should be, you have to go all the way back to week 1 for Helen and Gorka’s lowest scoring routine. Their American Smooth scored, a still respectable, 26 (6,7,6,7) with the judges
Helen and Gorka have fallen short of a maximum on two occasions. The first occasion was at Blackpool when Craig denied them a maximum score for their Quickstep (9,10,10,10)
The second occasion was during Musicals week when once again Craig denied them a perfect score for their Couple’s Choice (9,10,10,10). You will be seeing this routine again during the final as their favourite dance
Helen and Gorka have amassed a total of 428 points from 13 routines making for an average of 32.9. This is the lowest average of the four finalists and is also lower than Semi Final eliminated couple Will and Nancy
Number of times in the Dance Off
Helen and Gorka have never faced a dance off
Can they win?
If anyone is going to stop the Hamza and Jowita train it is Helen and Gorka. They’ve been on the rise the last few weeks and whilst they are, at the time of writing, sitting second in my poll of who you want to win with 38.62% crucially they are just a few percentage points behind Hamza and Jowita and with a strong final they could pick up the support they need to be declared champions
