Hi Strictly fans! Time has flown by and we’re already here at the semi-final of the competition. Who will make it to next week’s final? Join me here to watch the couples battle it out and remember to let me know what you think below – best comment of the weekend wins a TV Times mug!
20.05 Wow, what a way to end the show! 40s for Chelsee and Jason and amazing performances from Harry. Alex is a dark horse and popular with the audience but do she and Holly stand a chance? Let me know what you think below. I can’t stand the tension!
20.03 Fantastic – another 40 after so many close calls!
20.01 Alesha is beside herself with excitement, Brrrruuunno loved it, Craig calls it incredible – now this really deserves a 40!
20.00 Wow, that was exciting!! Well done, Jason!
19.56 34 – not bad, but I’m not convinced that will be enough to get her through to the final. Time for Jason’s big finale, the Argentine tango, now. This could be brilliant if he doesn’t make any mistakes – stay focussed, Jason!
19.54 Brrrrruuuunnno and Alesha loved the concept, but they don’t seem quite as taken with the execution…
19.51 Wow, what a modern take on this – shame about the mistakes – keep it together Holly!
19.50 Let’s see those acting skills for the Charleston, Holly!
19.48 Time for Holly and Artem – their final chance to wow us tonight and Artem picks those glasses!
19.46 There it is – the perfect 40!
19.44 Craig loved it – it looks like this could be the 40!
19.43 I love a paso but I think Chelsee could have given this a bit more fire… Great ending though!
19.38 31 – not bad. James can’t resist a swipe at Craig though! Here comes Chelsee…
19.36 Brrrrrrruuuuunnno enjoyed it but says there was too much uncertainty when she was dancing on her own, Craig thought the routine was too tough for her and Len loves her attitude but thought the steps lacked finesse.
19.34 Len won’t like the messing around at the beginning and what will Craig say about that lift!
19.30 Time for Alex’s salsa – she seemed nervous about this earlier but I can’t wait to see it!
19.29 39 – so close!
19.27 The judges absolutely love it!
19.25 Very elegant, Harry – could this be awarded the elusive 40?
19.23 Here comes Harry’s second dance. Can anyone beat the teacher’s pet of the competition?
19.19 Poor Brendan…
19.18 34 – not great for Jason, he’s vulnerable tonight at the bottom of the leaderboard with Alex…
19.15 Len loved it but points out that Jason lost timing again – how frustrating!
19.13 Not sure if it’s his best dance but Jason is loving this!
19.10 Jason’s got the dreaded samba – let’s hope he can show us how it should be done…
19.09 36 – Holly’s all smiles. Here comes Jason!
19.07 Craig disagrees with me – he thinks it was ‘gorgeous’! The judges are raving about Holly…
19.05 The Argentine tango is my favourite dance and this is definitely not the best I’ve seen on Strictly – where’s your passion, Holly?
19.03 Poor Holly is finding this week tough – fingers crossed she can pull something out the bag…
19.01 Time for Holly and Artem – can they build on last week’s success?
19.00 36 – Alesha gives a 10 despite the slip up.
18.59 Brrrruuuuunnno thinks she’s a natural, Craig says she has exquisite arms despite being vertically challenged and Len compares her to the Chelsea Flower Show!
18.56 They’re doing the American Smooth first – this is good, but not as showstopping as last week…
18.53 Hooray, they’re doing the paso – this could be fantastic…
18.52 34 – great score! Time for Chelsee and Pasha…
18.50 Brrrrruuuunno calls Alex the belle of the ball and says she has improved leaps and bounds – Craig agrees!
18.47 Alex looks stunning and this is a beautiful waltz – could she be a surprise finalist?
18.44 Time for Alex and James – who would have thought they would get this far a few weeks ago?
18.43 39 – Craig still isn’t budging with his scores!
18.42 Len’s a big fan but what about the other judges?! This could be the first 40…
18.40 There have been some great Charlestons this year – not sure if this quite has the personality of some of the others but it’s technically on the money…
18.36 Harry’s up next and all of the McFly boys are there to support him, including King of the Jungle, Dougie. It will be a huge shock if he doesn’t get through to the final…
18.35 Two dances tonight! Holly looks amazing in red and wow, what a shirt Jason!
18.33 Very chic, Tess!
18.32 The stakes are high tonight with a double elimination tomorrow night – eek!
18.31 Here we go!
18.20 10 minutes to go!
