Pasha Kovalev is saying goodbye to Strictly Come Dancing with one last two-step on telly this weekend, and fans aren't going to want to miss it!
Earlier this week, the long-time Strictly pro - who was a runner-up with Ashley Roberts last season - announced his retirement from the BBC dance competition "after eight incredible series".
But he's not hanging up his dancing shoes quite yet! Pasha will be reuniting with his fellow Strictly Come Dancing pros one last time - on telly at least - for this weekend's Greatest Dancer semi-final.

The Strictly pros will also be joined on stage for this performance by The Greatest Dancer captains Cheryl, Matthew Morrison and Oti Mabuse (so hopefully Cheryl keeps up with the footwork).
As mentioned, this is expected to be Pasha's last TV performance with the other Strictly dancers but fans can still see him on the Strictly Come Dancing Pro Tour beginning in May.
When he announced his departure from the show this week, Pasha explained that he was ready for a "new challenge" after reaching four finals and winning a glitterball with Caroline Flack.
Sadly after eight incredible series, the brilliant @PashaKovalev has decided to leave #Strictly😢. Pasha, from all of us, thank you for your amazing choreography and routines over the years. You’ll be sorely missed! 💕 pic.twitter.com/xtHmPwXGrf- BBC Strictly ✨ (@bbcstrictly) February 13, 2019
"I've had 8 fantastic years, full of wonderful memories, thanks to incredible partners, professionals and myriad of behind the scenes teams who all work to make Strictly the amazing production that it is," he tweeted.
"My biggest thanks go to all the members of the public who've supported me so much over these years – I look forward to seeing you all on the Strictly Pro-Tour this spring, and for many future adventures to come."
