Hi Strictly fans! Not long to go before tonight’s dose of dancefloor delights. Can Jason live up to last week? Will Lulu remember the steps? Can Nancy and Anton avoid another wardrobe malfunction?
Let me know what you think below – best comment of the weekend wins an exclusive TV Times mug!
20.05 See you back here tomorrow night at 7.25pm for the results show!
20.01 Wow, what a show! The lines are now open – who are you voting for? Who do you think will be first to go? Comment below and let me know what you made of it all!
19.59 Aww Russell is more excited about Robbie getting good marks. It’s 25 for Russell – ‘very respectable’ says Tess.
19.57 Len says Russell puts the ‘boy’ in ‘flamboyant’. Nice.
19.56 What a performance! The crowd love it.
19.55 Russell’s not afraid of a feather boa!
19.54 Aww how can you not love Russell! He’s so happy to be with Flavia…
19.52 Surprisingly low scores of 6 from Len and Craig, but still a total of 27. Now the ones we’ve been waiting for – Russell and Flavia!
19.50 Ooh Len is angry with Aliona for saying she never listens to the judges on It Takes Two. Drama!
19.49 Lovely, romantic routine – even Craig liked it (apart from the posture).
19.47 Haha – loving the McFly boys in training!
19.45 Low scores – a total of 14. They desperately need the public to vote for them. Now it’s Harry and Aliona time.
19.43 Did Nancy mention she’s got an injured leg?
19.42 Anton compares the experience to wrestling a tiger! Brrrrruuuuno reckons she’s been drinking but likes the glamour!
19.39 Nancy is up on the desk and jumping around the floor – Anton, you’re creating a monster!
19.37 Nancy and Anton now.
19.36 8 from Craig, Len and Brrrrrrruuuno, 9 from Alesha. Kristina doesn’t know what to do with herself!
19.34 Alesha seduced by Jason! Brrruuunno is a fan, he loves Jason’s acting. Craig calls it stylish and magnificent and Len said it’s full of flair and personality. Yay, well done Jason!
19.32 Jason’s going for it! Not sure they needed all the props though.
19.30 Loving the training footage!
19.29 Hooray its Jason time – the audience is excited. Red trilby and braces – this is going to be fun.
19.28 Next week’s Broadway special is going to be fab – top hats and canes all the way! 28 for Anita and Robin – what a great couple.
19.27 Len thought it was fantastic, Alesha loves it and Brrrrruuuuno calls it a tutti frutti cockail. Brian May looks like he wants to swing for Craig…
19.25 Anita’s certainly got the party spirit! Not quite as good as last week but still lots of fun.
19.22 Time for Anita and Robin – can they match last week’s mesmerising performance?
19.21 Jason keeps clapping! 7 from Craig – what an improvement – and a total of 29. Brilliant!
19.20 Much better judges’ comments! Robbie looks relieved, Brrruuuuno is over-excited (again). Craig can’t resist a little dig but says he loved it. Hooray!
19.17 Very slick with the umbrella and extremely light on his feet – go Robbie!
19.16 Robbie was very disheartened last week. Ola tells him to ‘man up’ – loving the sympathy!
19.14 A total score of 22 and Len calls Craig ‘a stupid boy’. Now it’s time for Robbie and Ola. Looking good guys!
19.13 Brrrruuuuno is giving a demonstration, Craig compares it to a ‘rat stuck to a sticky strip’ and Len gives some words of encouragement. Has he done enough to avoid elimination tomorrow?
19.10 Rory’s going for it – that’s some serious shimmying!
19.08 Rory and Erin now. Stop doing impressions Rory, we want to see the real you!
19.05 Alesha says she needs to let go a bit and she’s going to be amazing. Craig and Len point out some timing issues but still enjoyed it. Holly’s definitely one to watch.
19.01 Holly says she’s struggling to look sexy – I’d have never guessed!
19.00 25 for Lulu and Brendan. Now for Holly and Artem – this should be great…
18.58 Brrrruuuno is very happy with it and even Craig has nice things to say!
18.56 Too much messing around at the beginning but she’s remembering the steps! The concentration is all over her face though…
18.54 Lulu’s a ‘desperate woman’ so she’s eating brain food including sprouts. Brendan, you’re so mean!
18.52 21 for Dan and Katya. I reckon the Daybreak voters will keep him in though. Lulu and Brendan now – exciting! Hope she remembers the steps…
18.50 Lumpestuous?! Really Craig? Len agrees the salsa isn’t the best dance for Dan and Brrrruuuno compares him to Bob the Builder. Poor Dan…
18.48 Hmm salsa doesn’t seem to suit Dan. More hip action required. Great lift though!
18.46 Dan thinks Katya needs to be more sensitive towards him in training. No chance mate.
18.44 29! Big smiles from James and Alex. Now for Dan and Katya…not sure about the pink bow tie.
18.43 The judges agree Alex is better at ballroom and she looks much happier than last week. Nice work James.
18.42 Very elegant, Alex! Now she’s on Brrrruuuuno’s knee! No surprise that he liked the dance then…
18.40 James has resorted to electrocuting Alex! Oh dear, she’s kissing John Prescott – why?!
18.38 Time for Alex and James. Alex looks fabulous – let’s hope there’s not another slanging match between Craig and Mr Jordan!
18.37 It’s 23 for Audley, fingers crossed it’s enough to get him through.
18.35 Yep Alesha loved it but Craig calls him ungainly…Len’s pleasantly surprised by the whole thing!
18.33 Audley’s girating near the judges – Alesha looks pleased. Very hard to take your eyes off Natalie though…
18.30 Why does Edwina keep saying she’s doing it for the first time? So is everyone… She’s definitely in the danger zone this weekend. Here come Audley and Natalie.
18.28 Len’s calling it ‘the last supper’ – he never likes props. Alesha is already losing her patience, Brrrruuuuuno compares her to a bendy bus and Craig is generally unimpressed. Oh dear.
18.25 The stage is set for a romantic meal at a restaurant, but I’m not feeling the chemistry between these two. Craig is going to get his claws out…
18.23 Poor Vincent, he wants his mummy…
18.22 Not sure how safe Edwina and Vincent are though – they’re up next.
18.21 Generally positive comments from the judges and Chelsee enjoyed it. It’s a score of 29 with a 7 from Len. Not bad at all…. surely she’s safe from tomorrow’s vote?
18.18 Len wants Chelsee to calm down, he thinks the dance was too full-on. This is Strictly – there’s no such thing as over the top, didn’t anyone tell him?!
18.17 Poor Craig – leave him alone Bruce!
18.16 Wow, this is a fun, lively salsa from Chelsee. The costume department have done a fab job with her tassel-tastic outfit!
18.14 Aww Chelsee is sweet but Pasha is struggling to keep her on task. He confiscated her phone – she must feel like she’s back on Waterloo Road!
18.13 Keep it together Bruce! First up are Chelsee and Pasha…
18.11 Bruce is sabotaging Tess tonight! Here come the couples. Nice sleeves Russell, Edwina has a very strange headpiece, Anita looks like she’s joined the circus and Robbie is Mr Suarve. Great red hat, Jason!
18.08 Wow Tess, that’s a much better dress than last week. Loving the sequins!
18.07 ‘The competition has just got serious,’ says Tess. Gulp.
18.06 Hooray, it’s here!
18.04 Here we go… a couple of ads and then Strictly!
18.00 5 minutes to go – can’t wait to see all the couples in action!
