The Greatest Dancer’s Oti fights back tears over Michael & Jowita’s performance

Fans of The Greatest Dancer have been wowed by the performance from dancers Michael and Jowita in the semi-final episode.

The couple's dance coach Oti Mabuse was left almost in tears after the couple did a tribute to one of the Strictly Come Dancing professional's favourite films: Dirty Dancing.

The classic Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey film was the basis of the pair's performance tonight, which also include a segment set to the classic tune (I've Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.

Following the breathtaking performance, including a take on that beloved lift from the film, Oti was overcome with emotion at the performance.

She continued to praise the couple, with her evident emotional display leading to fellow coach Cheryl rushing to hug Oti.
