The pair went on to become firm favourites with the judges and the viewers and received a near-perfect score in week eight with their Waltz.
However, in week nine they found themselves in the bottom two with Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice.
The YouTube star was saved but left the competition the next week when their Samba routine failed to impress the judges.
Saffron spoke to Express.co.uk ahead of her fundraising initiative, #YouTubers4NHSHeroes, which encouraged other YouTubers to donate their advertising income to NHS Charities Together.
Explaining the campaign, Saffron said: “I just wanted the younger generation to feel like they could get involved and the Clapping for NHS [campaign] inspired me so much and made me so emotional, looking down my street and seeing young kids being able to get out and do their part. I felt this was another way people could get involved.”
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One later this year.
Saffron Barker is encouraging the UK’s YouTube community to donate their advertising income (AdSense) from one video uploaded on Saturday 11th April 2020 aka Super Saturday to NHS Charities Together #YouTubers4NHSHeroes.
