Strictly Come Dancing finalist Joe Sugg, 28, who competed on the show with Dianne Buswell, 30, last year, spoke about Karim Zeroual, 25, and Amy Dowden’s upcoming dances on the show this weekend. On the latest Strictly podcast, he told listeners that his friends are likely to vote for the pair because of their song choice.
This Saturday, the dancing duo will perform an American Smooth to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline as well as an Argentine Tango to Bond’s Libertango.
Speaking with his podcast co-host Kim Winston, he told listeners the dancing duo will get votes from some of his friends.
He said: “Their American Smooth is Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond.
“It’s an anthem, I know straight away they’re getting all my mates back home’s votes because they just love that song.

“They won’t know the couples necessarily but they’ll be like, ‘If I hear Sweet Caroline, I vote for it’.”
Joe’s co-host Kym then queried: “Are you trying to tell me your friends stopped watching after you left?”
The Youtube star replied: “Oh no, I made sure they still watched. They’re actually invested now.”
Last weekend, Karim and Amy became the first dancing duo to get the perfect score of 40.
