Finalists Karim and Amy and Emma and Anton chatted to presenter Claudia Winkleman
Karim called his perfect score in last night's show "overwhelming".
"To get a ten from Craig meant everything", he said, adding that his Strictly family had been the best part of his experience so far.

She announced that next week she would be performing the Waltz and the Cha-cha-cha.

Kelvin will be dancing the Paso Doble and the Quickstep.
The show also saw performances from Beverley Knight, who sang Memory from the Cats musical, and Frozen star Indina Menzel, who sang Seasons of Love from Rent.
Chris Ramsay looked downcast as he found out he was going to be appearing in the dance off.
But he maintained a positive attitude when speaking to presenter Tess Daly.
"It's been a long time coming lets be quite honest here!", he laughed.
"I'm buzzing, I'm overjoyed I got this far.
"I can't believe how far we've come."
He added that he was much happier to perform the dance again than he would have been last week's routine.
Judge Shirley Ballas congratulated Chris for getting to the quarter final without any previous dancing experience.
"Enjoy every single moment with this wonderful lady", she said, indicating Karen.
She reminded him: "It's never over til its over!"
Chris and Karen made it to next week after Alex Scott lost her place in the semi finals with partner Neil Jones.
Speaking to Tess Daly after her fate was sealed, Alex said taking part in the show had been a dream.
“I’ve been a fan of Strictly forever so to even be here and dance here every week. I’ve loved every moment and I have to thank everyone, and everyone behind the scenes to make this show work,” she gushed.
“I’ve literally lived out another dream I had football and then this chapter. I have to thank my dancer partner, he’s incredible. Thank you to everyone.”
