They’re set to take to the stage during Sunday’s semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing.

And Fleur East and Helen Skelton got in a final day of practice as they were snapped making their way to rehearsals on Saturday morning.

Batting away the cold temperatures, the Sax singer, 35, donned a longline red padded jacket while her presenter co-star, 39, opted for a similar styled black jacket.
