Jason's "Almost Perfect" Jive

Heart's Jason Donovan scored 34 out of 40 for his electrifying jive in front of 6,500 people at Wembley Arena during a special edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

Jason was on course for an even higher score before losing his steps towards the close of his routine with Kristina Rihanoff.

The score left him one point behind joint leaders Alex Jones and Chelsee Healey. Jason' 34 was matched by Harry Judd.

Speaking to Heart backstage Jason said, "I can't hide my disappointment. I made one false step and unfortunately I could have had seen perfect scores.

"It was a difficult dance, very quick, it was just that last section, if I could turn back time, I would be a lot happier.

"A great atmosphere at Wembley, audience amazing, I got such a good vibe and up until the point it went wrong I was right in the pocket of the routine.  That's life. That's showbusiness" 

One couple will be voted off tomorrow night, leaving just seven in the competition.
