Strictly Come Dancing stars Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu have revealed how Kylie Minogue is helping them for the final.
While speaking to host Janette Manrara on It Takes Two on Wednesday night (December 14), the duo revealed that they’ll be performing their show dance to a medley of Prince songs, including the singer’s famous track ‘Kiss’.
After Carlos explained how the dance is going to be about “lust”, Molly shared that pop princess Kylie gifted the pair with a fitting prop from her Kiss Me Once tour.

She said: “Kylie Minogue has these amazing, these iconic lips that she lies on, on her tour, and she’s let us borrow it for the final. Thank you, Kylie!”
In a battle for the coveted Glitterball Trophy against Fleur East and Vito Coppola, Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystał, and Helen Skelton and Gorka Márquez, Molly and Carlos will also dance a Quickstep to ‘Love On Top’ by Beyoncé and a Rumba to ‘All The Man That I Need’ by Whitney Houston.
Just missing out from a place in the final were Coronation Street‘s Will Mellor and Nancy Xu, who failed to impress the judges with their Paso Doble in the dance-off against Fleur and Vito on Monday night.

Following their elimination, Nancy shared her pride in Will, writing on Instagram: “Where do I start ~ well, even if it still hurts, I’m still super grateful for this journey. And super proud for all the dances that we have performed on Strictly Come Dancing this year.”
She continued: “The memories we made in this journey are beyond everything. I will hold them in a very special place in the deepest part of my heart. I adored this partnership so so much.
“Thank you thank you thank you all for the support and votes, all the positive comments, messages and your time, this meant a lot to me.”
Strictly Come Dancing‘s final airs on Saturday (December 17) at 7.05pm on BBC One, while spin-off show Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows also stream on BBC iPlayer.
