Helen Skelton and Fleur East got an early start on Saturday morning when they turned up for some last-minute rehearsals ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing finale.
The duo are two of four celebrities who will take to the stage with their professional partners to compete for the Glitterball trophy – with Molly Rainford and Hamza Yassin also hoping to bag the prize.
And despite the early wake-up call, they appeared in high spirits as they exited the competition hotel ahead of Saturday’s thrilling finale.

The beauty slung a Mina And The Moon camouflage tote bag over her shoulder and held onto a hot beverage as she fueled up for the day.
Helen, who collaborates with Gorka Marquez in the competition, let her ash-gray tresses fall in a gorgeous curl while her complexion appeared radiant.
