The waltz was better than I thought considering the posture problems. She gets a lot of emotion across.
Wonder who will be in the dance-off?
Yes Frodo I thought that too
Watched live over iplayer this afternoon and enjoyed, there seemed so many dancers, it went on for ever!!
Can't say any of the dances really wowed me and none disappointed me so all a bit meh really. Was pleased Victoria did better although she does struggle with spinning (as would I!!) I really hope Michael survives a bit longer, they seem a great partnership. The one person who is doing nothing for me is Dani, really don't care either way about her It should really be Johnny to go but I bet he will be kept in.
I am sure there is a spoiler thread on DS but I like to wait so keep out of the whole website completely as some people put titles (by mistake I think?) that make it obvious who has gone!
As Victoria said on ITT, she has spent practically her whole life in bike shoes, balancing on high heels is hard enough without dancing in them! We were out last night so I missed the whole show, at least I'll get to see the dance-off.
That's my plan BI
It's weird reading back the thread and trying to work out who you're talking about! I only saw the last 2 dances last night.............
Not sure who I want to go, or to be in the bottom two as so far there's nobody really annoying me................
Quite curious as I think some of those more mid table may be vulnerable even though it is the first eviction..........we Great British Public are a fickle bunch
I want Mr. Westlife out.
I fear it may be Michael though TopSec
But perhaps the 'so bad it's good' factor, and the genuine enjoyemnt he and Natalie (?) show will help with the public vote.
No time to write more now, except that I am crossing my fingers for Vicky - who I think will improve massively if she can just get through a couple of weeks - and that I thought Len was a bit harsh in his criticisms of Kimberley.
Agree about the curse of the mid table - it was ever thus.
No one bowled me over either, not yet.
But Mr Westlife has an adorable yellow labbie..........and that makes him ok in my book even if he can't dance!!!
Coz I am clearly a dance expert who has discerned the finer points of the judging skills necessary....
I thought JB would get more public support, wonder if he was bottom. Can't see the judges saving him
sad to see Johnny Ball going, but his dancing tonight just didn't cut it!
Fair result if I'm honest, even though I was sad to see him go. Was a bit surprised that it was Richard and Erin, really thought it was going to be Michael - the jive is a nightmare dance, I seem to recall quite a few 'good' celebs going out on their jive week? I wonder if Richard got the mid table curse or whether people just don't like him, have to say he's a bit too smarmy and clever for me, never did like him in GMTV.
Great to see Claudia back, although I think Zoe actually does a better job it's nice to have a little smattering of Claudia - maybe she should just replace Tess!? Mind you, Tess is better without Bruce I think.
Time to see what they are saying on DS; who they are crucifying today!!
I wish JFW and Hammy were still around
Agree the result was right based on the dance-off, but I still don't like Richard.
Sorry to see Iveta go
A query re. the dance off, it looked as though Michael would have been asked to redo the Jive if he was in the dance-off. I don't think that would have been fair, I think everyone should have been able to dance their best scoring dance, not just the one they did on Saturday.
Lovely to have a bit of Claudia madness
PS: I also miss JFW and Hammy
Ditto, ditto and ditto
Bring back Claudia,JFW and Hammy!
I thought the right person went home on Sunday - although Johnny was much much better in his waltz (I could watch it without having to hide behind my hands), he was still the right choice to go.
Nicked this off DS, it had me in sticthes reading it so thought you guys might like it ...

Nice summary xine
V. funny TopSec! I love the word flail
Hahaha! Love it TopSec Especially the rumba costume description
Speaking of rumbas, has anyone seen the Argentinian version of Strictly/Dancing With the Stars ... just YouTube it, but not while at work!
Brilliant Top Sec - now I know what I'm looking for
I read the dance descriptions last night whilst sat on the settee. Mr TS wasn't in a very good mood with me so trying to keep a straight face was veeeery difficult
Looking forward to another marathon Strictly session tomorrow
I was pleasantly surprised at Victoria's rumba, it looked OK. Did anyone else see her pick up Brendan and do squats while carrying him?! Impressive leg strength there
Lisa's jive looks OK as well but Jerry and Nicky's QS both look a bit ropey. Not looking forward to Colin and Kristina's Bond themed AT. It looked a bit tacky and I don't think they've had enough time to practice.
Can't remember what anyone else is doing now
Morning all. I missed last week.
LN - I agree about Colin's AT from what I saw. I hope they don't put Bond in every dance because its already getting tedious.
See you all tomorrow.
Ahhh, I'm out tomorrow night so I'm going to be catching up on iPlayer on Sunday.
I went to a dance masterclass this week, got to try jive, tango, rhumba and samba - SO much fun but so hard, especially the jive! Tango was my favourite but it seems a bit early in the series to be doing AT? Hope they can do it justice ...
All quiet on the Strictly front... is everyone busy applying the fake-tan and sewing on extra sequins? I know I am! *shimmies*
Nice bling there sarah. I'm just getting the choclits and vino set up.
Is it because they don't expect the gorgeous Mr Salmon to be there at QF/SF stage?
Here we go
Oh good god, don't let Brucie sing
