Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Karim Zeroual’s exit sealed in dance-off clue?
Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden received the lowest combined scores last weekend alongside Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard. Despite topping the leaderboard, fans failed to save the CBBC presenter from the dance off and he was forced to dance for his survival in Strictly Come Dancing. The judges may have praised his routine as “perfect” the second time around but it looks like Karim will face the dance off again on Sunday.
Karim and Amy performed their Couple’s Choice Contemporary routine last weekend and received high feedback from all four judges.
Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse marked the pair a nine while Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli gave them 10s.
However his high score didn’t save the couple and he was dragged from the top of the leaderboard to the very bottom.
The Strictly couple performed their routine again after Saffron and AJ performed their Samba.

As well as being saved by the judges, Karim received extremely complimentary feedback.
Explaining his choice, Craig said: “Tonight was easy for me the best dance tonight was and Karim.”
Motsi added: “One couple left me no choice, it was a perfect performance and I’m going to save Karim and Amy.”
“I want to keep the couple that has proven to be the strongest both technically and artistically,” Bruno commented.
However it seems Karim could follow in the footsteps of Saffron and become the next celebrity to be eliminated from the competition.
In week eight, Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice found themselves in the bottom two for the first time.
After performing their American Smooth again, they were saved over Mike Bushell and Katya Jones.
In Blackpool Michelle was in the dreaded dance off for a second week in a row but lost out to Saffron and AJ.

When Saffron was said by the judges this was also the first time she had been in the dance off.
The following week she lost out to Karim who is now the only celebrity remaining to have been in the dance off.
The last four dance offs have all been lost by a couple who had previous experience of being in the bottom two.
In week seven Emma Weymouth and Aljaž Škorjanec were booted out after being in the dance off in week four.

Mike and Katya were eliminated in week eight in their fourth and final dance off.
Does this mean Karim will receive the lowest combined score once again and exit the competition?
However Strictly fans did flock to social media to share their shock at Karim being in the dance off which may mean his supporters will save him this week.
Meanwhile, Emma Barton’s victory in the competition may have been sealed after a revelation about Anton Du Beke’s determination to progress.
Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight on BBC One at 7pm.
