Last week, seven celebrities eliminated the Blackpool Tower

:00:10.:00:15.

ballroom. Some took the judges on a Big Dipper ride to remember. That

:00:16.:00:22.

was a table topping show stopper! Others proved more disappointing

:00:23.:00:25.

than a rail replacement bus service. You looks like you were playing

:00:26.:00:31.

hopscotch in an all girls' school. And after the battle of the

:00:32.:00:34.

Olympians' dance-off, Greg packed his bucket and spade and left. This

:00:35.:00:40.

week, with the addition of the Cha Cha Challenge, our celebrities are

:00:41.:00:44.

working around the clock preparing two dances. I'm apprehensive. Going

:00:45.:00:50.

to get some last-minute practice in. A tough week ahead. Sangakkara I

:00:51.:00:54.

never thought Strictly would take over my life. We cannot afford to be

:00:55.:00:57.

complacent. Live from the BBC, this is Strictly

:00:58.:01:53.

Come Dancing! Please welcome your hosts... Tess Daly. And Claudia

:01:54.:01:58.

Winkleman! Hello and welcome to Strictly Come

:01:59.:02:23.

Dancing! In last week's Blackpool special, we witnessed some truly

:02:24.:02:26.

magnificent performances. Everyone was blown away, even Craig, who

:02:27.:02:29.

dished out his first ten of the series. It was our two Olympians,

:02:30.:02:35.

Greg and Claudia, who went head to head in the dance-off. Sadly, it was

:02:36.:02:41.

Greg who lost out. We are now left with just six celebrities who will

:02:42.:02:43.

have to raise their game once more because tonight, as well as

:02:44.:02:46.

performing a new routine, they will be taking part in our first Cha Cha

:02:47.:02:53.

Challenge. Six couples competing against each other at the same time

:02:54.:02:58.

on this very dance floor. It's going to be one busy ballroom. And

:02:59.:03:03.

watching closely will be four people who never miss a trick. Please

:03:04.:03:09.

welcome the judges. Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell

:03:10.:03:14.

and Len Goodman. The judges, everyone. Slick! Our

:03:15.:03:36.

couples are waiting in the wings, limbering up for a night of double

:03:37.:03:41.

dancing. Let's bring them out here on the double. Please welcome our

:03:42.:03:49.

Strictly stars. TV presenter and singer Louise Redknapp and her

:03:50.:03:53.

partner Kevin Clifton. Star of Judge Rinder, Robert Rinder and his

:03:54.:03:58.

partner Oksana Platero. Olympic gymnast Claudia Fragapane and her

:03:59.:04:03.

partner AJ Pritchard. BBC Sport presenter Ore Oduba and his partner

:04:04.:04:07.

Joanne Clifton. Former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls and his partner

:04:08.:04:12.

Katya Jones. And finally, actor Danny Mac and his partner Oti

:04:13.:04:13.

Mabuse. Our sensational six, all eager to

:04:14.:04:35.

entertain and impress not once, but twice tonight and with a place in

:04:36.:04:39.

next week's quarterfinal up for grabs, the pressure is on. You will

:04:40.:04:43.

be able to vote for your favourite later. Your votes will be added to

:04:44.:04:47.

the judges' scores to decide which two couples will face the dance-off

:04:48.:04:51.

in tomorrow night's results show. It is then down to the judges to decide

:04:52.:04:55.

who stays in the competition. Dancing for tonight is Danny and his

:04:56.:05:05.

partner Oti. Last week, they scored the first perfect 40 of the series

:05:06.:05:09.

and ever since they got back from Blackpool, they have been out

:05:10.:05:13.

partying. But they were not just celebrating, they were training for

:05:14.:05:21.

tonight's samba. What a night, dancing along with backing dancers

:05:22.:05:25.

in front of that audience. Words cannot describe the feeling.

:05:26.:05:36.

Fantastic. Fabulous! 40 at Blackpool! To entertain people is

:05:37.:05:42.

all I ever want to do. I am so grateful I had the chance and I am

:05:43.:05:48.

grateful to do it again. Keep it slow. This week, Danny and I will be

:05:49.:05:53.

dancing the samba. I am trying to make it a little less carnival and a

:05:54.:06:01.

bit more jungle, ethnic and tribal. Stop laughing at me! Oti wasn't

:06:02.:06:07.

laughing at me. As she likes to celebrate the Lidl describe it, she

:06:08.:06:11.

was celebrating the movement of my body(!). I believe you. To hopefully

:06:12.:06:18.

get to grips with the dance, Oti has brought me to meet the London School

:06:19.:06:21.

of samba, because they know a lot more about it than I do. It even

:06:22.:06:26.

though their style is different, it is about having fun. That boy can

:06:27.:06:36.

really check his hips. I just hope we can bring that level of fun to

:06:37.:06:43.

Saturday night. Dancing the samba, Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse.

:06:44.:06:48.

Listen to that reaction from the audience. Have a look around, Danny.

:06:49.:09:01.

Tell you what, it's hot in the jungle. Congratulations, storming

:09:02.:09:08.

start, so different to last week's Charlton. Is there nothing your boy

:09:09.:09:15.

can't do, Oti? He worked so hard before we hear what the judges

:09:16.:09:18.

thought, let's welcome our wonderful live singers Hayley, Lance, Andrea,

:09:19.:09:24.

Tommy and of course Dave Arch and his brilliant orchestra. Well, you

:09:25.:09:31.

brought the heat, but I know you wanted to bring fun to the dance

:09:32.:09:37.

floor tonight. Len, did he? Oh, he's a tease. You started slow. Hello, I

:09:38.:09:45.

thought. A stationary samba walk, hint of a role, and then suddenly,

:09:46.:09:50.

wallop! Into those promenades, flying around. Natural roles, I tell

:09:51.:10:00.

you, your hips were like a snake, honestly! It was fierce like a puma,

:10:01.:10:07.

and hotter and steamier than the Amazonian jungle. It was fabulous!

:10:08.:10:15.

It was steamy, all right. Bruno, they had the perfect score last

:10:16.:10:20.

week. How did they do to make? What are you doing to me? At this time at

:10:21.:10:28.

night, look at the state of me. I am hyperventilating. I don't know if I

:10:29.:10:32.

need a doctor, a pill, a drink, a cold shower. It was like watching a

:10:33.:10:41.

Pagan mating ritual. Between magnificent, exotic species. Every

:10:42.:10:46.

sinew of the body was stretched to the limit, slave to the rhythm.

:10:47.:10:53.

Those hips were popping off your pelvis! Even for him, that is

:10:54.:11:07.

excited. By contrast, look at Craig's face. I found the open shirt

:11:08.:11:15.

a slight distraction, darling. But I have to say, your hip action, we

:11:16.:11:19.

never get that from a male celebrity. It was incredible. I

:11:20.:11:30.

loved the tribal nature of it, the isolation was absolutely excellent.

:11:31.:11:37.

Brilliant. Brilliant from Craig. Darcey? Danny, you have certainly

:11:38.:11:41.

put the hours in. To achieve that in one week, he has done it. It really

:11:42.:11:49.

showed. It was like the most perfect samba masterclass. Clean isolations,

:11:50.:11:56.

travelling, using the dance floor. Outstanding. You cannot top those

:11:57.:12:04.

comments. Off you go, congratulations. Danny and Oti. That

:12:05.:12:11.

was so much fun! Oti, I have never seen the samba

:12:12.:12:32.

like that. Normally, a samba is like a small parrot. That was

:12:33.:12:36.

extraordinary. And you look surprised when you get such good

:12:37.:12:40.

comments. You don't know what to expect. We worked all week for it,

:12:41.:12:43.

but you genuinely don't know what will come from those guys, and they

:12:44.:12:48.

are the experts. When it is good, it's amazing. The scores are in. The

:12:49.:12:52.

judges' scores are in. Are you OK? Listen to the audience.

:12:53.:13:29.

Thank you, gang. That is the first 40 in Strictly history for a samba.

:13:30.:13:36.

It has never happened. Well done. If you thought Danny and Oti were the

:13:37.:13:40.

jungle VIPs, all the information you need is on your screen now, so you

:13:41.:13:43.

can vote for them when the vote opens at the end of the show. Fans

:13:44.:13:47.

of the terms and conditions. While I read them, it's the perfect

:13:48.:13:51.

opportunity for everyone to practise for the tartan challenge. Cue the

:13:52.:13:56.

cha-cha music. Calls cost 50p plus any network access charge.

:13:57.:14:03.

The vote will not open until after the charter challenge. Please don't

:14:04.:14:09.

vote until I tell you. If you do, your vote will not count and you may

:14:10.:14:11.

still be charged. Tess. What a start to the show and a

:14:12.:14:23.

little bit of Strictly history with it.

:14:24.:14:26.

Dancing next it's Ore and his partner Joanne.

:14:27.:14:28.

Ore's gone from being top of the leaderboard,

:14:29.:14:31.

to being in the dance-off to scoring three tens for last week's

:14:32.:14:34.

Viennese Waltz but can he stay near the top

:14:35.:14:36.

I cannot get over that night. Cool, sophisticated, slick. Brilliant.

:14:37.:14:55.

Three 10s, who would have thought? And to do it in Blackpool ballroom.

:14:56.:15:00.

I don't think I would have changed a single moment of that night.

:15:01.:15:05.

Blackpool is awesome, I'm coming back! We have the Paso Doble this

:15:06.:15:12.

week There have been so many incredible ones this series, we have

:15:13.:15:16.

to somehow make ours stand out. We haven't done a dance yet where we

:15:17.:15:20.

have to be angry with each other. Amazing. I am not a very angry

:15:21.:15:25.

person. This is going to be a little bit of a challenge. Paso is

:15:26.:15:34.

exhausting. So much to take in. Step-wise there will be a lot of

:15:35.:15:40.

stamps. And there will be a lot of flamenco hands and wrists and also

:15:41.:15:47.

the posture which is of a Mateador. You have to maintain that. The

:15:48.:15:52.

pelvis forward, back up. Lead with this frame. There's so much to

:15:53.:15:57.

remember with this Paso. One step wrong could be curtains. We have to

:15:58.:16:00.

make sure we get it absolutely right on Saturday.

:16:01.:16:05.

Dancing the Paso Doble, Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton.

:16:06.:16:08.

MUSIC: Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

:16:09.:17:53.

Just brilliant. They're on their feet. Come on over.

:17:54.:18:21.

Oh! Just brilliant. Goose pimples throughout that

:18:22.:18:23.

performance. That was fierce. You are usually such a pussycat, where

:18:24.:18:29.

did that come from? I don't have much to be angry about, but you try

:18:30.:18:31.

to channel it for a minute-and-a-half. We are used to a

:18:32.:18:36.

softer side, what about his angry side? Goose bumps, it was achingly

:18:37.:18:42.

stylish and original. Different. It was almost like Tom Ford's film

:18:43.:18:49.

Nocturnal Animals. It was a different take. It was modern and

:18:50.:18:57.

captured the zeitgeist of now. Yet every element was clear in display.

:18:58.:19:03.

The lines, the shaping. The attitude. It's different and I

:19:04.:19:08.

praise you, Joanne, for that. Because it's good reinventing

:19:09.:19:11.

something that's been around for such a long time and giving it a

:19:12.:19:16.

modern actual valid twist. Brilliant.

:19:17.:19:23.

So original. Craig, are we looking at a contender for the

:19:24.:19:27.

quarter-finals? Potentially. There was an unsure moment down here where

:19:28.:19:31.

you looked a little bit lost and I didn't believe you. Also, you need

:19:32.:19:36.

to watch in the Spanish line that the wrist is get towards the body.

:19:37.:19:46.

But I have to say, it had strength and style and power and the whole

:19:47.:19:50.

story was extremely engaging, darling. Well done.

:19:51.:19:58.

Darcey. Ore it certainly was, it was dramatic, intense. The focus was

:19:59.:20:02.

there from the beginning to end. What you have is a very supple upper

:20:03.:20:07.

body, that back which really helps to produce those shapes and curves,

:20:08.:20:12.

and then you have those lovely long arms to get that nice rounded shape

:20:13.:20:19.

which really worked. Very, very nice. Len. Atmosphere, a dance of

:20:20.:20:25.

power and purpose. I don't think I have ever seen anyone get that

:20:26.:20:30.

amount of shaping during the twist and turns and the cape. They were so

:20:31.:20:36.

strong. Unfortunately, on that second cape a little incident

:20:37.:20:41.

occurred, I think. Maybe I am wrong. But you can only go... Are you going

:20:42.:20:46.

to boo me for telling the truth? It was a wonderful Paso Doble. You

:20:47.:20:50.

showed a totally different side to your character and I congratulate

:20:51.:20:55.

you. Well done. Congratulations, you can't be angry

:20:56.:20:58.

after those comments. The smile is back. Off you go. Beautiful job. Ore

:20:59.:21:05.

and Joanne! . APPLAUSE AND

:21:06.:21:13.

CHEERING Well done. The judges called it

:21:14.:21:19.

dramatic, intense, a different kind of Paso Doble and also you are the

:21:20.:21:23.

friendliest boy in the whole world. Did you find it hard all week? I

:21:24.:21:31.

look at Jo and she has such an angry face, am I doing something wrong? I

:21:32.:21:36.

am biting my lip not to smile. The judges' scores are in.

:21:37.:21:57.

Well done. Still an excellent score. If you

:21:58.:22:05.

would like to keep Ore and Joe avn in the competition all the details

:22:06.:22:08.

are on the screen now and you can vote when voting opens at the end of

:22:09.:22:16.

the show. Still to come judge Rinder pretends to be a dance student and

:22:17.:22:23.

Oksana pretends to be his teacher. Dancing next in the ballroom

:22:24.:22:27.

is Louise and her partner Kevin. It's been wonderful watching

:22:28.:22:30.

Louise's Strictly transformation. So who better to join her

:22:31.:22:32.

in training this week than the man who's been supporting her every inch

:22:33.:22:37.

of the way - her husband Jamie. How was Blackpool for you? It was

:22:38.:22:45.

even more special in real life. You ales feel a little bit special when

:22:46.:22:51.

you get a 10 from Len. Head judge Len. You smashed it. This week we

:22:52.:22:59.

are dancing the waltz. It's a romantic dance. I am not really

:23:00.:23:06.

romantic at the best of times. Kevin has arranged for somebody to come in

:23:07.:23:13.

and help me get romantic. Fingers crossed it's George Clooney. Hey

:23:14.:23:19.

guys. You thought it was Clooney. Kevin has invited me to try to bring

:23:20.:23:25.

romance to Louise. Let's get into character. Last week you were

:23:26.:23:29.

fierce, this week you have to be romantic. Is he really as close as

:23:30.:23:38.

that? Other foot. Are you not feeling romantic? It's made me

:23:39.:23:43.

laugh. Stop laughing. I have already died inside. Stop laughing, we want

:23:44.:23:49.

romance. For the first time in years me and Jamie danced together, but

:23:50.:23:54.

giggling but still danced together. Stop laughing, get romantic! Kevin,

:23:55.:23:59.

take over. Good luck. We are so proud of you. The boys and I will be

:24:00.:24:02.

watching on Saturday night cheering you on.

:24:03.:24:08.

Dancing the Waltz, Louise Redknapp and Kevin Clifton.

:24:09.:24:10.

Oh, so, so graceful, Louise. Beautiful. Like a Princess.

:24:11.:26:15.

Gorgeous. I am sure you made Jamie and the boys proud. Craig, Louise is

:26:16.:26:19.

the highest scoring female of the series so far. Did she maintain that

:26:20.:26:25.

standard tonight? Louise always maintains standards. Absolutely love

:26:26.:26:30.

your dancing. You need to watch your shoulders raising slightly through

:26:31.:26:33.

the jazz sections, they still need to be down. But grace, fluidity,

:26:34.:26:39.

style. Movement around the floor was absolutely incredible. I just could

:26:40.:26:44.

watch you all night. I really could. Craig could watch you all night. So

:26:45.:26:48.

could we. Darcey. It's effortless, your style, the two of you together.

:26:49.:26:52.

I think what's lovely is the narrative is told through your

:26:53.:26:55.

steps. It's like this relationship building as the waltz builds. You

:26:56.:26:59.

don't get him to hold until the very end. It's really a piece of magic

:27:00.:27:04.

and what's even better is the artistry of how you play with the

:27:05.:27:10.

music is even more divine. It really is. And those finger turns, to have

:27:11.:27:17.

that beautiful concession right to the end and not losing balance and

:27:18.:27:22.

being straight on the line, straight on the money. Fabulous. Len, you

:27:23.:27:28.

scored Louise a 10 last week. Is she still your top girl? I tell you

:27:29.:27:39.

this, we have been treated to three fantastic dances. That dance could

:27:40.:27:46.

be one of your five-a--day. It's so good to watch. It was cracking.

:27:47.:27:53.

Don't listen up there... What's he on about? It was brilliant.

:27:54.:28:02.

Brilliant. Bruno, what do you think? Strictly beautiful, my darling.

:28:03.:28:05.

Quality of movement, the interpretation of the music. Above

:28:06.:28:11.

all, it's your phrasing. Your musical phrasing is impeccable.

:28:12.:28:17.

Impeccable. You must be on cloud nine after those comments. Let's

:28:18.:28:21.

hope for some 10s. Off you go, Louise and Kevin!

:28:22.:28:25.

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

:28:26.:28:36.

Well done, darling. I know you found this week quite difficult going back

:28:37.:28:41.

into hold. You kept going, we saw you with your husband, adorable. You

:28:42.:28:45.

found it tricky. For me it was the hardest week. I don't know what it

:28:46.:28:49.

was. You have to be controlled and I think I possibly drove Kevin

:28:50.:28:53.

slightly mad this week. So, thank you. Never, it's not possible. The

:28:54.:28:55.

scores are in. A beautiful 10.

:28:56.:29:05.

From Len, a 10. Well done. 39. If you want to see

:29:06.:29:28.

Louise and Kevin waltz into next week's musical special all the

:29:29.:29:32.

details are on the screen now. You can vote for them after the cha-cha

:29:33.:29:36.

challenge. If you want to vote online you will need to sign in or

:29:37.:29:39.

register if you haven't already. We still have all of this to come.

:29:40.:29:49.

Because this dance is slow, you're a lot more exposed in your technique,

:29:50.:29:55.

so the technique has to be really good. It's awesome. The tango is not

:29:56.:30:04.

only sharp and staccato, but also quite low and driving and stamping

:30:05.:30:08.

along. We can't stop for lunch. It's going to be wild. Argentine tango

:30:09.:30:17.

has to be very strong, fierce, passionate. That just feels weird.

:30:18.:30:25.

Just get it out there. I am looking forward to all of that. What have

:30:26.:30:29.

you got there, Claud? Is the camera that Ed will be using for his

:30:30.:30:33.

routine. I want to take a selfie, but I don't know how it works. Why

:30:34.:30:39.

don't you just use my smartphone? That is genius! Thank you. Hello,

:30:40.:30:46.

Ed. Can you show me how your camera works, please? All right, meet you

:30:47.:30:56.

there. Thanks, Tess. Next tonight, Judge Rinder and his partner Oksana.

:30:57.:31:03.

This week, they are doing the rumba, the dance of love, which is perfect

:31:04.:31:08.

for the judge. He loves dancing, he loves being on Strictly and he loves

:31:09.:31:13.

having Oksana as a partner. Let's just hope our judges are feeling the

:31:14.:31:22.

love as well. How did you feel about the Blackpool experience? I will

:31:23.:31:27.

never forget it. I have never seen a guy shake their cheeks as well as

:31:28.:31:37.

that. I thought it was hiptastic. I forgot the steps but I felt like I

:31:38.:31:42.

was having a party. What a way of ending such a fantastic night.

:31:43.:31:49.

Uplifting, fabulous. This week, we are doing the rumba and I was a bit

:31:50.:31:54.

apprehensive about it. But the dance Oksana has choreographed is

:31:55.:31:58.

genuinely so beautiful. It is a story of how a teacher can come into

:31:59.:32:02.

your life and make you a dancer. All you have to do is lead on her. From

:32:03.:32:08.

the dance that I was most nervous about, it has quickly become the

:32:09.:32:13.

dance I am most looking forward to expressing. There is somebody I want

:32:14.:32:18.

Oksana to meet. She was a special teacher to me and this seems like a

:32:19.:32:22.

perfect opportunity. She is the person who did all the school plays

:32:23.:32:28.

and opened my eyes to the world. When I see Rob dance, I am so proud.

:32:29.:32:33.

It's been such a privilege to have two such amazing teachers who

:32:34.:32:38.

believe in me. And when the teachers believe, you can do anything.

:32:39.:32:44.

Dancing the rumba, Judge Rinder and Oksana Platero.

:32:45.:32:49.

Well done! You looked like you were lost in the dance. Did we lose you

:32:50.:34:57.

for a moment? You really did. Definitely not the best dance, but

:34:58.:35:02.

I've got the best teacher. Lovely! Did he embraced the character in the

:35:03.:35:06.

story of the dance, Darcey? It's difficult, because the narrative you

:35:07.:35:11.

were playing was slightly different for a rumba especially on the

:35:12.:35:17.

relationship between you. For me, I don't think it gave a purpose to all

:35:18.:35:20.

those moves. The narrative didn't follow through for me. That was a

:35:21.:35:24.

shame. It is incredibly difficult for a man to feel that fluid and

:35:25.:35:29.

have that confidence in those fluid moves. You created some nice

:35:30.:35:33.

extensions and nice lines, and you were using the floor. But I didn't

:35:34.:35:37.

feel comfortable. The wait was a bit far back at times. You didn't look

:35:38.:35:45.

as steady on your feet. It wasn't your best dance. Len? Not your best

:35:46.:35:54.

dance, but it certainly wasn't your best dance. I thought you had nice

:35:55.:35:59.

fluidity through your arm. New managed to get the hip action.

:36:00.:36:11.

Funnily enough, it looked a bit taut. It lacked a bit of naturalness

:36:12.:36:16.

to it. It was like, put that on there. That was what I felt. But

:36:17.:36:25.

this is a terrifically difficult dance for the men and I thought you

:36:26.:36:34.

coped admirably. Bruno? Don't worry, darling, everything is beautiful at

:36:35.:36:39.

the ballet. And you took your ballet lessons seriously. Of course at

:36:40.:36:43.

times, you did look like the dying swan. There was a lot of plunging

:36:44.:36:49.

and swaying, and very lyrical. But sometimes, you turned into a funky

:36:50.:36:54.

chicken. Instead of keeping it going, you were going kind of

:36:55.:36:58.

staccato, with the white backwards. That stopped the beautiful lyricism

:36:59.:37:03.

that at times, you had through your arms. It is very hard. It was a

:37:04.:37:12.

brave attempt to, my darling. Have you got a bit of love for the judge,

:37:13.:37:17.

Craig? I thought most of it was a bit too spiky. By thought it looked

:37:18.:37:24.

a bit awkward on you, to be honest. And I felt that your individual body

:37:25.:37:27.

parts were moving independently of your core, which was a shame. You

:37:28.:37:33.

need to be able to bring the whole thing together and you would have a

:37:34.:37:38.

lovely dance. What I love about you is that you are earnest, and that is

:37:39.:37:50.

commendable. Mixed comments from the judges, but we love you. Off you go.

:37:51.:37:52.

Judge Rinder and Oksana. I don't want you to be disheartened.

:37:53.:38:09.

You were worried about this dance, but then you loved the story. I

:38:10.:38:16.

loved it so much. And your teacher is here, Wendy. Not Wendy, she is

:38:17.:38:26.

Miss! All right, Miss! It has been the story of our journey, but it is

:38:27.:38:30.

true. Our teachers are amazing. The scores are in.

:38:31.:38:52.

We just have to win the Cha Cha Challenge. Of course! If you loved

:38:53.:39:01.

Judge Rinder and Oksana's rumba and want to see them back to dance again

:39:02.:39:04.

next week, all the details are on your screen. You can vote for them

:39:05.:39:08.

when voting opens at the end of the show. Still to come, Claudia dance

:39:09.:39:14.

is on a six foot cube. It is what you could call a square dance. Tess.

:39:15.:39:19.

Dancing next in the ballroom is Ed and his partner Katya.

:39:20.:39:27.

During his time on Strictly, Ed has embraced quite a few challenges,

:39:28.:39:31.

rescuing a damsel in distress, flying a piano and doing a salsa -

:39:32.:39:38.

Gangnam Style! Tonight, he will be a male model on a photo shoot. We

:39:39.:39:47.

can't wait to see him strike a pose. It was the greatest privilege to

:39:48.:39:49.

dance in Blackpool, coming down from the ceiling playing flaming piano

:39:50.:39:59.

was fabulous. You made Blackpool rock. We didn't manage to impress

:40:00.:40:05.

Craig, though. It looked like you were playing hopscotch in an all

:40:06.:40:10.

girls' school. We will just have to work hard. Let's smash it. This

:40:11.:40:16.

week, we are back to ballroom, doing tango. The character you are going

:40:17.:40:22.

to be playing is a male model. I'm excited because I have brought in a

:40:23.:40:28.

male model, Paul, to help add get into character for the tango. I am

:40:29.:40:35.

pleased you are here. Let's see what you have got. I was thinking

:40:36.:40:39.

something like... To sell this tango, I have got to get character

:40:40.:40:44.

with toys and determination. Paul has got to tell me how he does it.

:40:45.:40:50.

He just lay down, and he looked cool. I gave him some pointers.

:40:51.:41:00.

Hopefully, everything I have learned today, I can put into practice on

:41:01.:41:10.

the catwalk on Saturday night. Dancing the tango, Ed Balls and

:41:11.:41:11.

Katya Jones. Oh, Ed! On their feet. It is always

:41:12.:43:27.

a joy, isn't it? Shaking your little tush on the catwalk. Nice pout, by

:43:28.:43:32.

the way. Was that a model performance? You were dancing to

:43:33.:43:37.

great's signature song, I can't get no satisfaction! Ed Balls, you are

:43:38.:43:41.

more like lottery balls. You never know what is going to come out next.

:43:42.:43:46.

But I've got to say, plenty of tango content. It wasn't just larking

:43:47.:43:55.

about and messing around. Listen, you're not always the judges' number

:43:56.:44:00.

one choice, but 100%, you're the people's champion. Bruno. You make

:44:01.:44:12.

Zoolander look like a beginner! But I have to say, Ed, Ed Balls' weekly

:44:13.:44:19.

fix always hits the spot. You're like junk food. You know you

:44:20.:44:23.

shouldn't have it, but you can't help wanting more!

:44:24.:44:30.

Do you want more, Craig? No, thank you. Thank you for the rose,

:44:31.:44:37.

darling, but that's not going to save you on this occasion. Your

:44:38.:44:46.

frame, you are completely hunched over, splayed hands, sloppy feet on

:44:47.:44:51.

kick ball changes. I have to say, committed. I think, darling, after

:44:52.:44:59.

that you should be committed. Darcey. At the beginning your focus

:45:00.:45:04.

was great. That was outstanding. Then you started to lose it. I think

:45:05.:45:09.

you got carried away, whoever you were channelling, was it Mick

:45:10.:45:13.

Jagger? Lovely clipped movements and I did see, as Len said, some tango

:45:14.:45:18.

there. Suddenly you lost focus and that was a shame because I really

:45:19.:45:22.

thought there was going to be something good here. It's weird,

:45:23.:45:27.

just the stalking moments got a little bit bouncy, got to soften

:45:28.:45:31.

those knees, keep the shoulders down. I think you got carried away

:45:32.:45:37.

with your character, but nice. He loves a character. Throws himself

:45:38.:45:42.

into it. Can't fault the commitment. Thank you, off to Claudia. Ed and

:45:43.:45:48.

Katya! APPLAUSE AND

:45:49.:45:54.

CHEERING Ed, we think you are magnificent.

:45:55.:46:01.

You have to follow Gangnam and then coming in on a piano and then that.

:46:02.:46:07.

You work really hard. Male model, it's not really me. You say that,

:46:08.:46:10.

you look magnificent. We loved it. The scores are in.

:46:11.:46:31.

Same score as last week. You do - you focus on the good. That was a

:46:32.:46:38.

nice 7 from Len. Fabulous. Excellent and you have the cha-cha challenge.

:46:39.:46:43.

Which I think we might win. We all think that, Ed. If you think Ed has

:46:44.:46:48.

moves like Jagger and want to see hm and Katya back next week all the

:46:49.:46:51.

information is on the screen now. You can vote for them at the end of

:46:52.:46:55.

the show. You don't have long to wait. There is only one couple left

:46:56.:46:58.

to dance before the cha-cha challenge.

:46:59.:47:03.

The next couple is Claudia and her partner AJ.

:47:04.:47:05.

This week they're doing a dramatic Argentine Tango and after the shock

:47:06.:47:11.

of being in last week's dance-off, poor Claudia knows all about drama.

:47:12.:47:21.

Last Saturday was a little bit nerve-wracking because we were

:47:22.:47:25.

starting first and I wanted to do well. I wanted to get the party

:47:26.:47:29.

started. It was full-on, it was sharp. There was a little moment

:47:30.:47:33.

early on. Mistakes happen to the best of us, you picked it up and

:47:34.:47:37.

continued. Being in the dance-off was horrible. I knew you had an even

:47:38.:47:42.

better performance in you. To get saved and to be there another week I

:47:43.:47:45.

feel grateful for that and I do not want to be in that dance-off again.

:47:46.:47:53.

The Argentine tango is an epic dance, it's speed, quick turns and

:47:54.:47:58.

fast footwork, that's why I am going to take you go-carting. You do know

:47:59.:48:03.

I can't drive. Treat it like the dance floor, attack corners but keep

:48:04.:48:10.

the precision. Don't lose tempo, most importantly, don't finish last.

:48:11.:48:15.

I was so nervous because I never drove before. Which one is to go?

:48:16.:48:22.

Also I wanted to win. Claudia was so slow at driving. I must have lapped

:48:23.:48:30.

her at least four times. Aj! I was trying to be really competitive. I

:48:31.:48:34.

am upset I got beaten but I took it like a true Olympian. Let's hope I

:48:35.:48:38.

am better at dancing than driving on Saturday night.

:48:39.:48:45.

Dancing the Argentine Tango, Claudia Fragapane and AJ Pritchard.

:48:46.:48:47.

Breathtaking! Incredible performance. You put your heart and

:48:48.:51:09.

soul... She's back with a powerful performance. She doesn't want to be

:51:10.:51:14.

in the dance-off again. How did she do tonight? Those lifts, my darling,

:51:15.:51:20.

it was a tour de force. I can like a Red Arrow in a spectacular aerial

:51:21.:51:24.

display. I thought you were never going to land! When you land you are

:51:25.:51:29.

always strong, controlled, precise. Always very well placed and what I

:51:30.:51:34.

like to see now and you are doing it tonight, you are developing a

:51:35.:51:38.

dramatic persona. You are starting to play the part more. Engage with

:51:39.:51:44.

the character, not just... Continue to do that. That's the way to

:51:45.:51:51.

progress for you. Craig. I thought your legs could be a little bit

:51:52.:51:58.

looser for the gaunchos, I felt you were placing your legs in positions

:51:59.:52:01.

rather than being reactionary, but it didn't stop me loving it. Clean,

:52:02.:52:07.

precise, incredible. Incredible. Darcey. What Craig said, your

:52:08.:52:15.

balance, your control, no wonder - you were turning during those,

:52:16.:52:20.

nobody could do that. The strength to be able to produce those lifts,

:52:21.:52:26.

so stunningly, keeping the topline so calm is really impressive. I was

:52:27.:52:35.

totally taken aback. And, sorry, and, you were creating a - producing

:52:36.:52:40.

a sultry, moody character that now is a good, good thing. OK. This is a

:52:41.:52:46.

new Claudia we are seeing. This relationship has to build. I want to

:52:47.:52:53.

see more. A We like it. Len. What I love, you have total control over

:52:54.:52:57.

what you are doing. It was a mix of frisky and risky. Frisky in the

:52:58.:53:02.

movement. Risky lifts. Pulled them all off. I thought it was a knockout

:53:03.:53:08.

routine. I thought you did a great job. Amazing performance and amazing

:53:09.:53:14.

comments. What a way to bounce back after last week's dance-off. We

:53:15.:53:21.

loved it. Claudia and AJ, well done. APPLAUSE AND

:53:22.:53:21.

CHEERING Well done. What a comeback. I know

:53:22.:53:34.

being in the dance-off is horrible. The pros said that was the best

:53:35.:53:40.

chory for an Argentine tango, honestly, Natalie was blown away.

:53:41.:53:45.

You liked being fierce. I loved it. I went for it so much, at the end my

:53:46.:53:50.

toe popped out of my shoes. That's how much I went for it. It was

:53:51.:53:54.

fantastic. AJ, you said this might be your best dance. I loved it, it

:53:55.:53:58.

was the best week, doing the tricks and learning lifts, it was crazy and

:53:59.:54:01.

to pull it off on the night. Thank you so much, it was amazing. You are

:54:02.:54:03.

a great teacher. The scores are in. Same score you have had the last few

:54:04.:54:31.

weeks. We would have all given it at least 90. Just so you know. If you

:54:32.:54:34.

don't want Claudia and AJ crying a river all the details are on the

:54:35.:54:40.

screen now. So you can vote for them when the vote opens after the Cha

:54:41.:54:45.

Cha Challenge. You two have to get ready. You have approximately three

:54:46.:54:46.

minutes. While they get changed

:54:47.:54:57.

for the Cha-Cha Challenge, But with a maximum of 6 extra marks

:54:58.:55:03.

up for grabs tonight, Over the years, we've had

:55:04.:55:07.

a Waltzathon, we've had a Quickstepathon, but we've never

:55:08.:55:10.

had a Cha-Cha Challenge. It's a Strictly first. But what

:55:11.:55:17.

exactly is it, how does it work? And what does it even mean? Honestly, I

:55:18.:55:23.

have no idea. But thankfully we know a man who does. Len. It's back. The

:55:24.:55:32.

chance to see all six couples on the floor at the same time. This year

:55:33.:55:39.

there is a Latin twist with all the couples dancing a cha-cha-cha. Hold

:55:40.:55:43.

on, like any dancing competition, there are rules. There will be six

:55:44.:55:49.

couples in the cha-cha challenge. The professionals have drawn out of

:55:50.:55:52.

a hat which spot on the dance floor they're going to begin. So it's all

:55:53.:55:57.

above board. Rule two, once the music starts they must keep dancing

:55:58.:56:03.

for the duration of the music. Halfway through the challenge

:56:04.:56:07.

couples will be told to switch positions with the couple next to

:56:08.:56:11.

them. This way everyone gets the same amount of time in front of us,

:56:12.:56:19.

the judges. Rule three, no lifts. If any couple is deemed to have done a

:56:20.:56:25.

lift they will get no marks and will be disqualified.

:56:26.:56:28.

Rule four, make sure you get your technique right. We want to see good

:56:29.:56:34.

footwork, lovely hip action, rhythmic interpretation. So make

:56:35.:56:38.

sure you get it right on the night. Lastly, they will get their scores

:56:39.:56:41.

at the end of the dance. The weakest couple in the opinion of the judges

:56:42.:56:47.

will get the score of one. However, the strongest couple will get a

:56:48.:56:54.

score of six. The scoring will be added to the scores from the

:56:55.:56:59.

previous dance. This has the potential to well and truly shake up

:57:00.:57:05.

the leaderboard. Couples, get out there and cha-cha like you have

:57:06.:57:11.

never done before. APPLAUSE

:57:12.:57:14.

Thank you very much, Len. Whoever comes first in the cha-cha challenge

:57:15.:57:19.

will get an extra six marks, second will get five marks and so on until

:57:20.:57:22.

the bottom couple will receive the one extra mark. Those will be added

:57:23.:57:27.

to the existing scores. Now, Len, this feels a bit harsh. Our couples

:57:28.:57:30.

have never heard the music they're about to dance to. Why is that?

:57:31.:57:36.

Well, that's what you get in a normal ballroom or Latin

:57:37.:57:40.

competition. There's no rehearsals, no knowing what the music is. You

:57:41.:57:45.

have to take what you are given and get out there, stay on time. Keep

:57:46.:57:52.

rhythmic and give it plenty of welly! All the couples have changed

:57:53.:57:56.

positions midway through the challenge. Remind us why. It gives

:57:57.:58:01.

us as judges another opportunity to see them from different angles so we

:58:02.:58:06.

don't miss anything. Thank you very much. Bruno, what does it take to

:58:07.:58:11.

win, what are you looking for? First, you have to stand out for the

:58:12.:58:17.

right reasons. Ed. No, the thing you have to maintain the look of the

:58:18.:58:22.

dance all the way through. You can not start doing improvisations

:58:23.:58:27.

styles that are not the cha-cha. Obviously, timing, the correct

:58:28.:58:30.

motion especially on elusive hip action, don't stop and start because

:58:31.:58:35.

we are going to stop it. Impress the judges with your performance value.

:58:36.:58:38.

Thank you very much. The wait is finally over. It's time

:58:39.:58:42.

for the cha-cha challenge to commence.

:58:43.:58:45.

Please welcome all the Can all couples please now change

:58:46.:59:00.

positions. That was fantastic. Thank you all

:59:01.:01:00.

very much. What a visual feast. Let's see what the judges thought.

:01:01.:01:05.

Bruno, our first Cha Cha Challenge. What did you think? That was nerve

:01:06.:01:10.

wracking for me, let alone you! First, let me say how wonderful it

:01:11.:01:14.

is to see all of you having improved so much from which one. You all did

:01:15.:01:23.

a very good job. And you all maintained a gnat truck cha-cha-cha.

:01:24.:01:29.

You didn't go out in tangents. You could see it action going

:01:30.:01:33.

everywhere. Not everyone had the correct timing, but you have to

:01:34.:01:38.

expect in a situation like this, you never heard the music, but all of

:01:39.:01:41.

you did a wonderful job. We are still discussing. Craig, how close

:01:42.:01:49.

was it? To ask, they all looked magnificent. Oh, they weren't,

:01:50.:01:56.

darling. Rest assured. No, it was actually very difficult. We were

:01:57.:02:03.

screaming up here and having arguments about the whole thing. We

:02:04.:02:07.

have only just sorted it out, but what fun. Bruno is right, it's

:02:08.:02:13.

amazing to see so much wonderful hip action, all in this space. So, there

:02:14.:02:20.

is an extra six marks up for grabs for the winning couple. This could

:02:21.:02:25.

turn the leaderboard on its head. Solar, starting with sixth place,

:02:26.:02:28.

please reveal the results of the Cha Cha Challenge. In sixth place is Ed

:02:29.:02:40.

and Katya. This place is Judge Rinder and Oksana. Fourth place is

:02:41.:02:51.

Claudia and AJ. Third place is Ore and Joanne. Second is Danny and Oti.

:02:52.:03:02.

Which means our winner is Louise and Kevin. Oh, yes! Thank you very much,

:03:03.:03:21.

the judges. So, Louise and Kevin came first in the Cha Cha Challenge

:03:22.:03:26.

and get an extra six marks. Congratulations to you both. And

:03:27.:03:29.

commiserations to add and Katya, who finished last and receive just one

:03:30.:03:35.

extra mark. Let's see how those marks have affected the leaderboard.

:03:36.:03:51.

But it is not about the judges' score tonight. You can change

:03:52.:03:57.

everything by picking up the phone or going online to vote for your

:03:58.:04:01.

favourites. Judges, I know you have worked hard tonight. You have been

:04:02.:04:05.

mind-blowing, but I have one more job for you. Please help me out.

:04:06.:04:10.

Audience, we will do it together. Three, two, one, the vote is...

:04:11.:04:12.

Open! Thank you very much. The vote closes at 8.30 five. Please

:04:13.:04:38.

don't try to vote if you are watching undermined. Here is a

:04:39.:04:42.

reminder of our couples' routines and the all-important vote

:04:43.:04:43.

information. It's been a busy night in the

:04:44.:06:37.

ballroom. Our six stars have dazzled on the dance floor and now they are

:06:38.:06:40.

relying on you, so pick up the phone or go online to give them your

:06:41.:06:45.

support. Voting closes at 8.35 tonight, so you don't have much

:06:46.:06:48.

longer to vote for your favourite couple. Your votes could help them

:06:49.:06:52.

avoid the dance-off in tomorrow night's results show when sadly, one

:06:53.:06:56.

more couple will be eliminated from stricter come dancing. Only five can

:06:57.:07:00.

make it through to next week's quarterfinal, when Strictly goes to

:07:01.:07:03.

the musicals, and no one wants to miss out. Also tomorrow, we have a

:07:04.:07:09.

special performance from Ellie Goulding. And we have a spectacular

:07:10.:07:14.

sports day themed routine from our professional dancers. I will

:07:15.:07:18.

abbreviate if you bring the spoons. Michael McIntyre is coming up next.

:07:19.:07:23.

Join us tomorrow night at the slightly later time of 7.20. In the

:07:24.:07:27.

meantime... Keep dancing!

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman invite viewers to join them for an evening of sequins and sparkles as the remaining couples hit the ballroom floor. The competition is at melting point as the six surviving couples dance not once, but twice, pivoting, twisting and turning to keep the glitterball trophy in their sights. After performing their routine, all six couples compete on the dance floor at the same time in the Cha Cha Challenge to earn valuable extra marks from the judges.

Voting lines will open at the end of the show. Once the judges' scores have been added to viewer votes, the two lowest-scoring couples will perform again in the dreaded dance-off in the results show.
