Hi Strictly fans! The competition is really hotting up now and I can’t wait to see what our couples have in store this week. Follow my live blog here and let me know what you think of tonight’s performances by commenting below – the best comment of the weekend wins a TV Times mug!
20.12 Chelsee, Harry and Anita are at the top of the leaderboard Rory, Russell and Nancy are at the bottom. It’s been a strange week – Jason’s been knocked off the number one spot, Chelsee came out of nowhere to wow us all and Russell attempted a macho routine. But who will go tomorrow? Tell me what you think below and you could win a TV Times mug. And remember to join me here tomorrow night for the results show blog!
20.08 A total of 24. Please keep him in for Halloween!
20.06 Brrrrrruuuuuuunno thought it was brilliant!
20.05 Craig’s got a cheeky smile on his face – he secretly loved it!
20.04 Good to see Russell hasn’t taken any of Craig’s advice – this is such a camp tango!
20.00 An 8 from Len and a total of 27 – the same as Jason! Time for Russell – hooray!
19.58 Brrrrruuuuno compares it to a L’Oreal advert, Craig ‘adored’ the characterisation and Len loved it!
19.56 Robbie’s really into this jive!
19.53 Aww so pleased for Anita. Now it’s time for Robbie and Ola…
19.52 32 for Anita – she looks completely shocked!
19.50 Positive feedback from the judges – even Craig loved it!
19.48 Great lift!
19.46 Yay, they’re doing an American smooth. This should be fab.
19.45 Time for Anita and Robin – I really like this pairing. Fingers crossed they do well tonight.
19.44 The first 10 of the series from Alesha! I miss Arlene…
19.43 Craig is arguing with Len again… Brrrrruuuuno just wants to flirt with Harry.
19.41 Len’s angry with the messing around – it cost Harry a 10 from him.
19.40 This looks pretty good to me…
19.38 Hilarious training VT!
19.37 It’s a tough act to follow – time for Harry and Aliona…
19.36 Wow! Four 9s!
19.34 The judges absolutely loved it!
19.33 This is great – quick, fun and in time. Go Chelsee and Pasha!
19.31 Holly tweeted earlier that Chelsee’s dance will be the performance of the night… looking forward to this.
19.30 Holly’s annoyed with herself for messing up but she’s top of the leaderboard so far! Can Chelsee steal the top spot from her?
19.28 Brrrruuuuuno thinks she’s got potential to be great, Craig loved the story telling and Len found it light and fluffy but got fed up with the props (quel surprise!)
19.26 Ooh nice props… the dance isn’t as floaty as it could be, but it’s a lovely routine
19.25 Artem’s struggling to make Holly ladylike in time for the Viennese waltz…
19.23 25 for Lulu. Time for Holly and Artem (and hopefully time for some high scores).
19.21 The judges liked it and feel the dance suited her but it doesn’t stop Brendan taking a swipe at Craig… Now James is heckling Len. Drama!
19.19 She’s doing a good job with this. Fun, carefree and probably Lulu’s best dance so far.
19.18 The samba is notoriously tricky. Brendan has been eliminated 4 times on this dance but Lulu is loving it – this could be great!
19.16 A 3 from Craig and a total of 18. Poor Anton… Time for Lulu and Brendan.
19.14 Len and Alesha enjoyed it, Brrrrrruuuunno compares her to cling film and Craig reckons there’s some talent there. Never a dull moment when Nancy’s around…
19.12 Some great lifts in there! Nancy is babbling and Brucie is confused.
19.10 Is this dancing or fast walking, Nancy?!
19.09 They’re doing a paso! This should be fun…
19.08 Nancy certainly doesn’t have a confidence problem…
19.07 A total of 25. Low scores from everyone this week. It’s Nancy and Anton time!
19.05 Natalie was battling a wardrobe malfunction throughout the whole dance – what a pro!
19.04 Craig is seeing improvement – he even said he liked it! Len is sitting down but ‘giving a standing ovation.’ Er…what?
19.02 Audley’s doing a decent job, but Natalie’s doing most of the work here…
19.00 Audley’s doing ballet – are we going to see a more graceful side to him in this foxtrot?
18.59 4 from Craig again! It’s a total of 24. Someone needs to cheer the judges up! Could it be Audley and Natalie?
18.57 Brrrrruuuuno found it funny – not sure if that’s good or bad. Craig found it uncomfortable – will they be impressed with anyone tonight?
18.55 Rory’s skipping and shimmying all over the place… this is fun!
18.54 Who knew Rory was so camp?!
18.52 James is upset with Craig and Len again – he’s ‘forgotten more about dancing than Craig knows’. This is going to run and run… Total score of 24. Eek. Here come Rory and Erin.
18.50 Len’s sticking up for Craig – I never thought I would see this!
18.49 Alesha calls it romantic but safe, Brrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuuno reckons it’s sinfully sexy but Craig says it’s cold and stiff. Oh dear… James is angry.
18.47 Love that lift!
18.46 Alex has been vamping it up for the rumba – has it paid off? Looks like it! Plus she’s stolen one of Ola’s catsuits!
18.44 Alex and James next doing one of the toughest dances on Strictly, the rumba. Here’s hoping they can pull it off…
18.42 A 6 from Craig?! A total of 27 – pick up the phone, everyone!
18.41 Jason agrees with the judges’ comments – he had to have a rough week one week. Fingers crossed everyone still votes for him!
18.39 Poor Craig – he hasn’t said anything and they’re picking on him! The judges weren’t impressed this week… stick to the camp routines, Jason!
18.37 Great paso face and strong lines… what will the judges think?
18.35 Jason was ‘overwhelmed’ by last week’s performance and is now getting into Spanish mode. Can’t wait to see this paso…
18.33 Jason’s up first with a jacket that can only mean paso…
18.32 Here they come! Russell’s all smiles, Artem looks dapper, Erin’s got an amazing dress and Nancy is smouldering. Loving the slicked back hair, Jason!
18.29 Hmm interesting dress, Tess… Genuinely not sure what to make of it.
18.23 Almost Strictly time…
18.10 15 minutes to go!
