Strictly Come Dancing finalist Molly Rainford, 22, and her partner Carlos Gu appeared on Wednesday’s instalment of It Takes Two to discuss the routines they are performing on Saturday night. For their show dance, they are borrowing a huge prop Kylie Minogue has used while touring. 

The pair will be performing the Quickstep to Love On Top by Beyoncé, a Rumba to All The Man That I Need by Whitney Houston for their favourite dance and a show dance to a mix of Kiss and 1999 by Prince. 

The other finalists are Helen Skelton, Hamza Yassin and Fleur East who have all selected a Couple’s Choice for their favourite dances. 

During their It Takes Two interview, Molly and Carlos went into detail about their three finale dances.

Host Janette Manrara played a snippet of Kiss and 1999 by Prince which the couple will be performing to on Saturday night.

Carlos revealed: “This show dance is about lust and we are going to give it all we have so it’s exactly how we want.

“We have been given Kylie’s kiss, I mean Kylie’s lips.” 

A confused Janette said: “I was going to say, what, whose lips and kiss?”

Molly clarified: “Kylie Minogue has these amazing lips which she lies on during her tours. 

“She’s let us borrow it for the final, so thank you, Kylie.” 

An impressed Janette said following the admission: “Oh, we love an exclusive.” 

Molly narrowly missed out on top marks by the judges last weekend for her Paso Doble to Survivor by Destiny’s Child. 

All of the judges, minus Craig Revel Horwood, awarded her 10 points for the powerful routine. 

Craig has only handed out one 10 throughout the entire season and it went to Fleur for her Destiny’s Child megamix Couple’s Choice earlier on in the series. 

Fleur and her partner Vito Coppola will be performing the top-scoring dance again on Saturday night. 

Reflecting on missing out on scoring 40, Molly said she was “secretly hoping” Craig was going to give her 10 points. 

She added: “I love Destiny’s Child, I love that song, it really summed up our journey on Strictly – that ‘j’ word – it showed how far we have come in that moment, and whatever happens, we’re proud.”

Molly also shared how appreciative she was to have made it into the 2022 final. 

She told BBC viewers: “It feels amazing to be in the final. To get here, and get here safe, feels amazing. 

“Thank you so much to anybody who voted for us – it means the world.” Carlos admitted he “never” felt he would get to the final in his first year.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One.
