Vine shines on Let's Dance

Tim Vine has made it through to the final of Let's Dance for Comic Relief after proving tonight's biggest hit with viewers.

The punning comic, 45, won the public vote in the first of the new series, after impressing with his performance to Justin Timberlake's Rock Your Body.

Judges put through the Soap Stars - Natalie Cassidy, Ricky Groves, Claire Sweeney and Dean Gaffney - who performed You Can't Stop the Beat from the musical Hairspray.

Other comics who appeared were Olivia Lee, dancing to Lady GaGa's Bad Romance, and Hal Cruttenden and Mark Dolan - who with radio presenter Shaun Keaveny comprised Destiny's Dad, doing a cover version of Bootylicious.

Here's Vine's dance:
