goss 03/06/2019

It was a difficult decision for the judges tonight as they struggled to choose who to send home on Dancing with the Stars NZ.

The decision between ex-All Black Glen Osborne and ex-Warriors player Manu Vatuvei held hands as judge Rachel White chose to save Manu, and judge Julz Tocker chose to save Glen.

Which left the final decision to head judge Camilla Sacre-Dallerup.

"I'm gutted to have to make this decision," she told the pair, saying that she adored them both. 

"On this performance purely, one of those stood out slightly more and one improved slightly more from what I saw earlier until now," she said, saving Manu.

Glen thanked his dance partner Vanessa Cole, his police force workmates in Whanganui, and his wife and daughter.

"I'm just really sorry I didn't get this one to the final or anything, but I'm just glad to get home."

Next week's semi-final will see the remaining five celebs compete next Sunday at 7pm on Three.
