Geordie dance captain Cheryl picked the pair as one of her top three acts and they have continued to do her proud each week while ompeting to win £50,000, a chance to dance on Strictly Come Dancing and to become The Greatest Dancer.

This week was ‘Around The World’ and Lily and Joseph were given the theme of ‘Iceland.’

They were the first to take to the stage and in the VT, they reminisced on last week’s “incredible” performance saying making it through was “the best moment ever” then shared afternoon tea with Cheryl.

The Geordie mentor added: “I think Lily and Joseph are living their dream.”

Lily described the theme of this performance as: “Looking after each other and looking out for each other.”

Dancing to You Are The Reason by Calum Scott, Lily and Joseph were on an ice themed stage dancing to a much slower tune than previous live shows.

They wore blue and white and moved in sync with each other and Joseph had Lily in some incredible moves including a butterfly lift which quite rightfully brought cheers from the audience.

After the perfomance, Lily said: “It was so cool!”

Oti Mabuse said it was “young” “fresh” and “just pure joy.”

In reaction to Joseph’s lifts Cheryl said: “I am so proud, you did every single one! I’m not surprised there was hesitation in his little face.”

She also promised that they can see the Northern Lights in Iceland if they win.

They received a score of 93.8% from the audience, but it was down to the public to decide who should stay and who should go and sadly it was Ainsley Ricketts who left the competition.

We can see more of Lily and Joseph on BBC One on Saturday, February 22 when the remaining acts will dance to stay in the competition.
