Last week Strictly went to the movies. Some delivered a blockbuster

:00:12.:00:24.

performance. I understand how good that was. Others went straight to

:00:25.:00:32.

DVD. I cannot believe what I have just seen. A shock dance-off saw

:00:33.:00:41.

Tameka failing to make the final cut. With Hollywood a distant

:00:42.:00:50.

memory, it is back to reality. After last week we know we are not safe.

:00:51.:00:55.

We have to work so hard to be back next week. You are amazing. I cannot

:00:56.:01:06.

stomach the dance-off. This is Strictly Come Dancing.

:01:07.:01:53.

Live from the BBC this is Strictly Come Dancing!

:01:54.:01:57.

Please welcome your hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

:01:58.:02:06.

Hello and Welcome to Strictly Come Dancing!

:02:07.:02:31.

We saw some incredible routines, including Hollywood,

:02:32.:02:35.

Bollywood, Robin Hood, and Ed Balls doing that Samba.

:02:36.:02:38.

But sadly Tameka and Gorka were eliminated from the competition

:02:39.:02:42.

after losing out to Laura and Giovanni in the Dance Off.

:02:43.:02:47.

And Tameka wasn't the only celebrity we've had to say goodbye to.

:02:48.:02:50.

As many of you may know Will Young has withdrawn from the competition

:02:51.:02:53.

Will, if you are watching we wish you all the best.

:02:54.:03:01.

Tonight our remaining twelve couples will be pulling out all the stops

:03:02.:03:04.

to entertain - and impress four very important people.

:03:05.:03:08.

Our celebrities have spent the last seven days preparing

:03:09.:03:41.

Now they're ready to come out and deliver

:03:42.:03:46.

So please welcome our Strictly stars.

:03:47.:03:53.

TV presenter and singer Louise Redknapp and her

:03:54.:03:56.

Star of Judge Rinder, Robert Rinder, and his

:03:57.:04:00.

Actress Lesley Joseph and her partner Anton Du Beke.

:04:01.:04:08.

Olympic gymnast Claudia Fragapane and her partner AJ Pritchard.

:04:09.:04:12.

BBC sports presenter Ore Oduba and his partner Joanne Clifton.

:04:13.:04:17.

Model Daisy Lowe and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

:04:18.:04:22.

From BBC Breakfast, Naga Munchetty and her partner Pasha Kovalev.

:04:23.:04:27.

World Champion long jumper Greg Rutherford and his

:04:28.:04:29.

Former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls and his partner Katya Jones.

:04:30.:04:37.

TV host Laura Whitmore and her partner Giovanni Pernice.

:04:38.:04:41.

Actor Danny Mac and his partner Oti Mabuse.

:04:42.:04:46.

Singer Anastacia and her partner Brendan Cole.

:04:47.:05:09.

There they are, our tremendous twelve.

:05:10.:05:13.

The group may be getting smaller but we're all expecting big things

:05:14.:05:16.

You will be able to vote for your favourite later on.

:05:17.:05:22.

Your votes will be added to the judge's scores to decide

:05:23.:05:25.

which two couples will face the Dance Off in tomorrow night's

:05:26.:05:28.

It will then be down to the judges alone to decide who stays

:05:29.:05:32.

And dancing first to win your votes is Greg Rutherford and his partner

:05:33.:05:42.

While learning his new routine, he injured his wrist in training.

:05:43.:05:52.

But he's not going to let that stop him performing his Salsa

:05:53.:05:55.

Never did I expect I would love dancing as much as I did last week.

:05:56.:06:20.

Prince of thieves, you are Prince Charming. It was a bull's-eye, well

:06:21.:06:25.

done. When I really enjoy something I can let go and have fun with it.

:06:26.:06:33.

This week we have the salsa and we are doing it to Lismore is' Wrapped

:06:34.:06:42.

Up. We are doing the most ridiculous moves. They need to be executed

:06:43.:06:46.

personally or they will go horribly wrong.

:06:47.:06:51.

After suffering an injury Greg heads to the doctor's for advice. I am

:06:52.:06:56.

nervous and the dance is approaching at speed and I need to be ready. We

:06:57.:07:02.

are hoping by Saturday it will have gone down and he should be able to

:07:03.:07:07.

do what he wants to do. We have done so much training and we have to move

:07:08.:07:13.

on and up our game. It has been a difficult start, but a surprise

:07:14.:07:16.

visit to the training room will help their spirits. That was the loudest

:07:17.:07:25.

scream I have ever heard. I absolutely love him, unbelievable. I

:07:26.:07:31.

have heard that they are doing my son. Can I see the routine? We had

:07:32.:07:39.

to adapt it, Ollie has seen it and he likes it. I love that. Bosch.

:07:40.:07:45.

Dancing the Salsa, Greg Rutherford and his partner Natalie Lowe.

:07:46.:07:53.

A sensational salsa. You were very brave, Natalie. How is

:07:54.:09:54.

your wrist? He is holding his wrist. That was an epic left at the end.

:09:55.:09:56.

While you two cool down let's welcome our fabulous

:09:57.:10:00.

live singers Hayley, Lance, Andrea, Tommy

:10:01.:10:01.

and of course Dave Arch and his brilliant orchestra.

:10:02.:10:03.

Let's go to the judges. Did that happen all the fun of the fair? It

:10:04.:10:18.

was a bit like candy floss, it was tasty mostly, but a bit sticky in

:10:19.:10:24.

the footwork. Your toes town in a little bit, a bit flat-footed, but

:10:25.:10:31.

your bottom was going to town. Plenty of rhythm going. It is not

:10:32.:10:35.

your best, but it is certainly not your worst. That you, Len. The

:10:36.:10:41.

ladies in the audience were shouting, nice bottom. Keep going,

:10:42.:10:48.

Tiger. Hurricane Greg hits the south that and shakes it for all it is

:10:49.:10:57.

worth. Oh, you are an animal. Must do squats tomorrow. I will take you

:10:58.:11:02.

for a session. I could not take my eyes off it. You had hip action. You

:11:03.:11:10.

have so much energy that at times it is uncontrolled and you lose your

:11:11.:11:16.

timing. Your footwork when slightly off because you were so keen to get

:11:17.:11:22.

at it. You spent so much time in the air, you need a flying licence. But

:11:23.:11:28.

I appreciate the effort you put in your performance. Just clean it up a

:11:29.:11:31.

little bit. APPLAUSE

:11:32.:11:38.

. It needed a lot more rotation in the hip department. It was very

:11:39.:11:43.

square. However upstairs, your shimmies were absolutely great. You

:11:44.:11:49.

are treading too heavily in the dance for my liking, which lost a

:11:50.:11:55.

bit of fluidity. You lost a bit of dignity, darling, when you did that

:11:56.:12:05.

bottom grind here. It was totally unnecessary. But I love your

:12:06.:12:13.

enthusiasm and your energy and that lift at the end was brilliant. The

:12:14.:12:25.

energy just flows out of you. Sometimes even Natalie comes off her

:12:26.:12:31.

feet as you grab her. She flew out. But that is exactly what it needs,

:12:32.:12:36.

and plenty of energy. You can calm it down a bit, but the lifts were

:12:37.:12:45.

perfect for best dance. And the exit as well, you are totally in control

:12:46.:12:54.

of those. You have lifted all of us. Good night for you, Greg. Off to

:12:55.:12:58.

Claudia's fun house. Very well done. Opening the show is

:12:59.:13:17.

terrifying. But what I love is you said, I feel like a doughnut when I

:13:18.:13:21.

do dancing and you do that and you are amazing. Thank you, it is so far

:13:22.:13:27.

out of my comfort zone, every time I do something I think I look stupid.

:13:28.:13:32.

But this one has been teaching me every day and she is doing well.

:13:33.:13:37.

Also Rob has given me a lot of stick. It is really lovely and we

:13:38.:13:43.

got it right today and I am so happy. And you had Lismore is come

:13:44.:13:50.

and visit you. She was more excited about him. Ladies and gentlemen, the

:13:51.:13:57.

judges have their scores. You are all right with that. We will

:13:58.:14:17.

If you don't want Greg and Natalie to leave

:14:18.:14:20.

the competition, all the details are on your screen now.

:14:21.:14:23.

Now it's everyone's favourite part of the show.

:14:24.:14:25.

Please welcome the Barber Shop Quartet.

:14:26.:14:41.

Easy does it. We will do this together. You begin.

:14:42.:14:47.

access charge, and please ask the bill payer's permission.

:14:48.:14:55.

I hope you are very every Saturday before Christmas.

:14:56.:15:11.

where you will also find terms and conditions.

:15:12.:15:14.

Voting won't open until all our couples have danced.

:15:15.:15:16.

So please don't call yet as your vote won't

:15:17.:15:18.

count and you may still be charged!

:15:19.:15:20.

Our next couple is Laura Whitmore and her partner, Giovanni Perniche.

:15:21.:15:29.

After last week's salsa landed her in the dance-off,

:15:30.:15:38.

Laura is determined to do better with her quickstep tonight.

:15:39.:15:41.

So this week in training she enlisted the help

:15:42.:15:43.

Apparently - with a couple of treats and a tummy rub!

:15:44.:15:54.

I enjoyed the performance on Saturday. I just wanted to go out

:15:55.:15:59.

there with as much energy as possible and show something a little

:16:00.:16:03.

bit different than the week before. That show girl has got va-va-voom.

:16:04.:16:10.

This is one of the hottest, everything I like salsas that I've

:16:11.:16:14.

ever seen. How did you feel in the dance-off? It's not a nice feeling.

:16:15.:16:19.

I tried to let it give me a boost to keep my place. Laura and Giovanni. I

:16:20.:16:27.

want to fight for this. This week we're learning the quickstep, like

:16:28.:16:32.

fast. How quick? We need a lot of stamina. We need endurance. I think

:16:33.:16:36.

I know someone who can help. Who? He's got great moves. Who's that?

:16:37.:16:45.

Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones are the best band ever apparently Mick

:16:46.:16:50.

Jagger is coming here to help us with the quickstep. Wow! Joe, Mick's

:16:51.:17:00.

here. Here he is. Me and dog, not really best friend. I brought my dog

:17:01.:17:06.

to rehearsals. He has a lot of stamina, great moves. I couldn't

:17:07.:17:11.

believe how excited Giovanni was. Apparently he thought he was going

:17:12.:17:14.

to be someone else. It's not the same from the Rolling Stones. This

:17:15.:17:19.

one is a dog. Mick, what do you think? Yes! I was

:17:20.:17:27.

thrilled when Mick gave us ten points, because if anyone knows

:17:28.:17:30.

anything about the quickstep, it's my dog Mick Jagger.

:17:31.:17:33.

Dancing the quickstep, Laura Whitmore and her partner,

:17:34.:17:35.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Oh, wow. That was fast. You've come

:17:36.:19:29.

back fighting. That was really fun. It hasn't dented your confidence.

:19:30.:19:33.

Good girl. Bruno, you loved Laura's routine last week. You scored her a

:19:34.:19:36.

nine. What do you think tonight? Are you kidding me? There are no speed

:19:37.:19:42.

limits on Strictly. You did that down the M 1, you lose your license.

:19:43.:19:47.

I think I felt a sonic boom. That was so fast, so complicated, so

:19:48.:19:54.

difficult, yet performed with such ease. It was fantastic.

:19:55.:19:58.

APPLAUSE There is one section there, where

:19:59.:20:04.

you went from a charleston into a pendulum, brilliant. The

:20:05.:20:08.

acceleration across, it just was fantastic, darling, you deserve to

:20:09.:20:14.

be here. I'm telling you. Thank you. Craig? I thought you both covered

:20:15.:20:18.

the floor very, very well. The charleston section I have to say was

:20:19.:20:22.

absolutely stand-outish, wonderful moment. I did, at times, think you

:20:23.:20:27.

were fighting each other a little bit in hold. That's only because of

:20:28.:20:33.

the speed of it. Then I was thinking about that head banging moment. I

:20:34.:20:37.

didn't know whether that was a love or hate section. I decided at the

:20:38.:20:43.

end to love it. Well done. What a relief. So glad you said that.

:20:44.:20:48.

Darcey, they were in the dance-off last week, better tonight? Oh, yes.

:20:49.:20:53.

Laura, fabulously fast. My God, it was busy down below, wasn't it! Was

:20:54.:21:00.

it? On the stage, that was definitely my favourite bit. When

:21:01.:21:03.

you're on the spot moving like, that stunning. When you travelled, I do

:21:04.:21:09.

believe, for me, in the top line, just your right shoulder seems to

:21:10.:21:11.

roll in. That's where you take the effort. My gosh, you were

:21:12.:21:15.

travelling. That was fast. Very impressive. Well done, thank you

:21:16.:21:24.

Bruno. Len? Your head got a little bit overexaggerated at times. It was

:21:25.:21:30.

a little bit strained. However, having said that, plenty of lights,

:21:31.:21:35.

plenty of cameras, plenty of action. Honestly, flat out, no larking

:21:36.:21:39.

about. If you're in the bottom two this week, I'm going to pickle my

:21:40.:21:45.

walnuts - I promise you! APPLAUSE

:21:46.:21:49.

Looks like you're a ballroom girl to me. Thank you judges, positive

:21:50.:21:52.

comments all round. Off you go to Claudia.

:21:53.:21:55.

APPLAUSE Well done, baby. You know what we

:21:56.:22:08.

all completely love about you, sometimes being in the dance-off,

:22:09.:22:11.

bit of a shock. You spend like a couple of days bringing yourself

:22:12.:22:14.

back. You didn't. You were like, right, fine. Kind of want to prove

:22:15.:22:19.

yourself to be here and everyone's so good any way. This man is

:22:20.:22:23.

brilliant. He worked me hard during the week. Thank you. That was so

:22:24.:22:29.

fast. Lovely to hear when Bruno is like, "You are fantastic." I saw

:22:30.:22:33.

your face. Oh, OK. Thanks very much. The scores are in.

:22:34.:22:57.

Well done. Are you over the moon? That's your highest score. Yeah.

:22:58.:23:03.

Very well done. Thanks very much. Quite emotional. Lovely.

:23:04.:23:05.

If you think they blitzed that ballroom routine, vote for them,

:23:06.:23:08.

all the details are on your screen now and voting opens

:23:09.:23:11.

Still to come, Claudia and AJ are dancing students.

:23:12.:23:18.

Still to come, Ed Balls dances with a dragon.

:23:19.:23:23.

Dancing next is Anastacia and her partner, Brendan Cole.

:23:24.:23:26.

She's dancing the first rumba of the series.

:23:27.:23:32.

Head Judge Len, what should we be looking out for in this dance?

:23:33.:23:36.

You know, I know certain members of this gang here like it a bit

:23:37.:23:42.

raunchy, I think it's like a developing love story. It's a

:23:43.:23:47.

courtship. I don't like it if it's too raunchy. You want to see nice

:23:48.:23:51.

hip action. You want to see chemistry. You want to see lovely

:23:52.:23:54.

foot work. I'm looking forward to it. I think Anastacia will do a good

:23:55.:23:59.

job, that's my feeling. So am I. Good. Thank you very much.

:24:00.:24:01.

Let's see how they got on in training.

:24:02.:24:08.

Good weekend. Thank you. You too, big daddy. It was a massive way to

:24:09.:24:23.

come back. A good dance, a very, very clean, classy, confident dance.

:24:24.:24:28.

You've come back with an enormous sense of confidence. I think that is

:24:29.:24:31.

brilliant. Positivity coming our way. I love that feeling. I think we

:24:32.:24:38.

can use that. It was great. This week we have the rumba. It is a very

:24:39.:24:43.

soft, emotional, passionate dance. Lovely to feel that confidence when

:24:44.:24:48.

you're in your comfort zone with the microphone in your hand and apply

:24:49.:24:52.

that to the dance. To tap into the passion and confidence, Anastacia is

:24:53.:24:55.

putting on a one-woman performance for Brendan. I'm going to sing you a

:24:56.:24:59.

song because I can do that in my sleep. You don't have to pay. This

:25:00.:25:04.

is a free concert. I am very at home singing. I feel very at one with who

:25:05.:25:10.

I am, with what I'm sharing. # And you know I'm doing the rumba

:25:11.:25:14.

this week # And I just don't know the

:25:15.:25:18.

technique# So good to see Anastacia doing what

:25:19.:25:22.

she's really passionate about. She's so in the moment. We have to get

:25:23.:25:26.

that and her into what we do. # I don't want to go, yeah baby. #

:25:27.:25:33.

Thank you for my applause. You're welcome. The rumba is about passion.

:25:34.:25:38.

You're amazing! I'm extremely passionate when I sing. So if I

:25:39.:25:43.

could bring that to the dance floor, thumbs up.

:25:44.:25:46.

Dancing the rumba, Anastacia and Brendan Cole.

:25:47.:25:49.

MUSIC: The Way We Were by Barbara Streisand.

:25:50.:27:29.

Yes, you lovely lady. You look gorgeous. Thank you. Delightful. You

:27:30.:27:42.

showed your vulnerable side there. Lovely. You wanted to bring the

:27:43.:27:47.

passion, didn't you? I was just trying to bring something. Are you

:27:48.:27:52.

feeling the love, Craig? Yes. Half-and-half really. The four, one

:27:53.:27:57.

section of it, where you go through the movement, I thought you lost a

:27:58.:28:02.

bit of fluidity. It became somewhat stilled, not over the top stealthed,

:28:03.:28:10.

just -- stilted. You kicked Brendan's toe on the sweep through.

:28:11.:28:17.

The Ronde was very strong. I loved that section. Hand shaping is

:28:18.:28:23.

exquisite, darling. Lovely story telling. That's a lot coming from

:28:24.:28:29.

him. He's a hands man. Darcey. You have such stressive arms. They're

:28:30.:28:32.

beautiful. It's like you're playing the music with your arms and your

:28:33.:28:40.

hands. They really read really well. You have lovely shapes as well. I

:28:41.:28:48.

would love the body to undulate. Oh, hello. I'll let you know later. Just

:28:49.:28:54.

so we get one move flowing into the next. Just the moments of staticness

:28:55.:29:00.

where I would love to see the continuity. We can do that.

:29:01.:29:05.

Len, did you get what you were looking for? To a degree. I didn't

:29:06.:29:12.

mind it at all. There was a lot of lines and there was a lot of

:29:13.:29:16.

wiggles. I didn't - don't get aggressive, I know what you're like.

:29:17.:29:20.

I would have liked a tad more rumba content in there. No, yes. But we

:29:21.:29:26.

didn't get that quite. But what I did like was the lovely, fluid arms.

:29:27.:29:33.

I liked the light and shade, the speed of them pivots, stopped, move

:29:34.:29:36.

on, lovely. You could straighten your legs on the swivels. I never

:29:37.:29:42.

talk about you Brendan, because you're perfect. Of course he is! It

:29:43.:29:48.

wasn't great, but I tell you what it was very, very good. Well done.

:29:49.:29:53.

Thank you Len. Bruno, finish us off. Very lady like. Very glamorous. Very

:29:54.:30:01.

subtle. It was like watching a series of movie stars images, Rita

:30:02.:30:10.

Hayworth Eva Gardener. I like that. You got into these looks very, very

:30:11.:30:13.

well. I tend to agree with my colleagues, you hit one thing, but

:30:14.:30:19.

it has to flow, as Len said earlier, into another continuously. There is

:30:20.:30:24.

never a sense of stopping in rumba. It is relentless, it's like wave

:30:25.:30:30.

upon wave beating you, driven by passion and sex appeal. Actually I

:30:31.:30:33.

could have done with a bit more of that. You know like the first week,

:30:34.:30:39.

when you went... Ha-ha. For me, that is to my taste. I have to say, it

:30:40.:30:46.

was tasteful. And very romantic. Lots of love in

:30:47.:30:49.

this room for you tonight. Thank you very much. Off you go to Claudia.

:30:50.:30:53.

Anastacia and Brendan. APPLAUSE

:30:54.:31:06.

Well done. The rumba is the hardest dance. Everybody can see everything

:31:07.:31:18.

because it is so slow. It is quite intimidating and I am dancing to

:31:19.:31:22.

Barbra Streisand and you cannot make out that way. You have to keep a

:31:23.:31:28.

simple and classy. Done job. And you did. The scores are in.

:31:29.:31:46.

The same as last week, happy with that? Yes.

:31:47.:31:53.

If you enjoyed that routine to a song about memories,

:31:54.:31:57.

All the details are on your screen now and voting opens

:31:58.:32:02.

Still to come, Naga climbs out of a giant clown. I hope she does not

Charleston saw them joint They even got a nine from Craig,

:32:22.:32:25.

either that or he was so blown away, he accidentally held his

:32:26.:32:31.

six upside down. That was absolutely brilliant. I was

:32:32.:32:45.

really happy, I enjoyed it so much and I am in my element. Getting nine

:32:46.:32:55.

from Craig was incredible. I was so ecstatic, all 49 as much. I am so

:32:56.:33:00.

grateful to be through and I am loving all my time here. This week

:33:01.:33:07.

we have got the foxtrot. Will it be slow? Yes. It will be a challenge.

:33:08.:33:16.

The concept is in the school corridor with lockers, it will be

:33:17.:33:20.

incredible. AJ has lined up a surprise visit for cloudier's

:33:21.:33:25.

teachers. I hope she has done her homework. I left school at couple of

:33:26.:33:31.

years ago and I was stunned that they came. They liked your work, so

:33:32.:33:37.

I thought I would see what they thought of your dancing. Having

:33:38.:33:43.

taught her PE at school it is great to see her carrying through with her

:33:44.:33:47.

gymnastics and now with her Strictly Come Dancing career. Her foxtrot was

:33:48.:33:53.

amazing and I was stunned by how graceful she was on the dance floor.

:33:54.:34:01.

Time for the Judge's scores. Please be nice. Wonderful. Fabulous

:34:02.:34:10.

darling. They scored us all tens. I am so proud of you, you get a gold

You two are adorable. I think the audience really like you two.

:35:54.:36:13.

Darcey, did you? It is the story you create, that young love all the way

:36:14.:36:17.

through. You have really stretched her. I was .txt that they knew to

:36:18.:36:22.

travel and collide and what is stunning is that top line. You have

:36:23.:36:28.

the strongest form. To be able to sustain that every time you get into

:36:29.:36:32.

hold is a strong point that you have and that is impressive. You really

:36:33.:36:40.

put your mind to it and I can see you have been working really hard as

:36:41.:36:49.

well. Len, joint top of the Leader Board lastly, how did she do this

:36:50.:36:54.

week? I thought she did very well. What you have to understand is you

:36:55.:36:58.

are young and modern. I am old and traditional. I am not that old.

:36:59.:37:05.

There is a bit of a conflict. It is a foxtrot. It had a flavour of

:37:06.:37:13.

American Smooth going into that dance. However, I must say you

:37:14.:37:17.

pleased me greatly over here because you did a lovely he'll turn in your

:37:18.:37:23.

hover across. I thought your footwork was terrific. Overall, for

:37:24.:37:28.

your class I am going to say first rate, well done. Goldstar, A+ from

:37:29.:37:38.

her teacher. Look at them, the ideal teenage dream team. They are so

:37:39.:37:45.

enthusiastic and keen to please. I could see how much you tried to get

:37:46.:37:50.

the technique of the foxtrot and hold. All the steps perfectly

:37:51.:37:57.

placed. But something happened, you were out of an underarm turn and you

:37:58.:38:02.

went on the wrong foot or something. No. No, it is me, I need to go to

:38:03.:38:10.

Spec Savers! But when you try so hard, make sure that you do not show

:38:11.:38:15.

it. You should never look angular. You should always look flowing. You

:38:16.:38:22.

are so good, but you can always get better. Greg. There was a bit of

:38:23.:38:32.

gapping and it lacked for me grace and elegance. Over here it looked

:38:33.:38:40.

like an acrobatic move rather than something beautiful. I did not think

:38:41.:38:44.

the burst out of hold represented the foxtrot or misrepresented the

:38:45.:38:51.

foxtrot entirely. It was not for me. It was all going so well until we

:38:52.:38:57.

got to you, Greg. Cloudier is upstairs. That was amazing. We

:38:58.:39:10.

absolutely love it up here and you have been working so hard. You said

:39:11.:39:17.

she worked hard under enormous pressure. Is he a difficult task

:39:18.:39:23.

master? Yes, definitely. He will turn small steps into big steps. I

:39:24.:39:30.

think Len said hovercraft. I am going to check that.

:40:03.:40:19.

is a great story and I am looking forward to it. Today is the first

:40:20.:40:26.

day I have ever twirled a cape round in a dance studio. This foxtrot

:40:27.:40:34.

looks smooth and elegant, but there is so much going into it. I am

:40:35.:40:43.

having so much fun, it is happy and cheery and it is good for me and I

:40:44.:40:46.

am the most excited about this one than I have been for any of the

This week Ed is doing the paso doble, and he'll be taking

on the role of a knight rescuing a damsel in distress.

:41:28.:41:30.

Can our Sir Lancelot turn into Sir dance a lot?

:41:31.:41:32.

Last Saturday went really well and you were amazing. That is me, I had

:41:33.:41:53.

to go for it. You are not the best dancer, but you are definitely the

:41:54.:42:00.

most fun. When we were finished the crowd went wild. You feel the energy

:42:01.:42:04.

in the room and that is what keeps you going. The hard work paid off.

:42:05.:42:10.

The scores are much higher than I thought I would ever achieve, so I

:42:11.:42:16.

am proud of getting 23 and 24. In the paso doble to the Bonnie Tyler

:42:17.:42:25.

song, there is a maiden and she needs and night to rescue her. Help,

:42:26.:42:32.

where is my hero? I am a novice knight, but she has got a plan. Get

:42:33.:42:37.

ready to be suited and booted, you are off for some training. You are

:42:38.:42:44.

going to learn the skills that you need to be able to save me. I can

:42:45.:42:53.

hardly move. Stop complaining, you have to do some combat training to

:42:54.:43:01.

save me from the Dragon. When I watched him a fight with the sword

:43:02.:43:05.

in his hand he looked so handsome and brave. I think this Dragon is in

:43:06.:43:13.

big trouble. I have done my training and now I can save my princess. I

:43:14.:43:22.

can now finally slay that paso doble on Saturday.

MUSIC: Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler.

:43:33.:45:09.

Sir Dance-a-lot. Ole! What a marvellous night. -- what a

:45:10.:45:39.

marvellous knight you make. I know a few little things went wrong. A few

:45:40.:45:43.

things went wrong. Was that a knight to remember? ? I don't know about

:45:44.:45:48.

holding out for a hero. I was holding out for a paso. BOO Don't be

:45:49.:45:56.

so cruel. Give over. Oi, give over. Do you know Ed, over the years

:45:57.:46:00.

there's been quite a few balls on Strictly. We had Zoe Ball, Johnny

:46:01.:46:06.

Ball, Bobby Ball did the Christmas special. We even had Michael Ball

:46:07.:46:09.

last week singing and not one of them has picked up the Glitterball.

:46:10.:46:14.

I'm not sure that you are, but I tell you this, you won't lose it for

:46:15.:46:19.

lack of trying. CHEERING

:46:20.:46:21.

Because you come out and give it your all. Well done.

:46:22.:46:29.

Got to be commended for that. Bruno. Mr Ed Balls present the dragon

:46:30.:46:34.

slayer. A true epic, tinged in tragedy, mostly because of the

:46:35.:46:42.

shaping. I mean, keep going. It was like you were directing traffic.

:46:43.:46:46.

That's not paso doble, that's a deemented traffic war don. Then you

:46:47.:46:50.

had a tantrum with the cape. You didn't know where the hell it was

:46:51.:46:54.

going to end up. It looked like a spin drier. For a strange reason,

:46:55.:47:01.

somehow I liked it. But I have to... APPLAUSE

:47:02.:47:05.

We all liked it. Entertaining. You're not going to

:47:06.:47:10.

get a high score, though. Craig, you scored Ed a measly four last week.

:47:11.:47:17.

How about tonight? Oh, dear. I don't think it's going anywhere

:47:18.:47:22.

near a four tonight. You were mincing around that stage, darling,

:47:23.:47:31.

like you were in an episode of Some Mothers Do' Ave' EmU made Frank

:47:32.:47:34.

Spencer look butch. The shaping was terrible. It was stompy. There

:47:35.:47:40.

wasn't a hint of any Mata corps in there -- madador in there,

:47:41.:47:48.

gesticulating wildly, passion-less. Dreadful, really dreadful. Darcey?

:47:49.:47:57.

There was plenty of performance in there, just some of the wrong

:47:58.:48:00.

performance, but that's fine. There was gusto. You were going for it.

:48:01.:48:04.

That's what we expect now, which is fabulous. Thank you for that. It is

:48:05.:48:14.

a shame that you made that balls up. But it was the armography that was

:48:15.:48:19.

the most upsetting. I'm sure you have created better armography than

:48:20.:48:24.

that. It was very hard and straight. No surf, no shape. Next time. I will

:48:25.:48:35.

work on that. Please. Definitely. You're a good knight, you've given

:48:36.:48:41.

us a great night. Sir Balls and lady Katya.

:48:42.:48:42.

APPLAUSE We went nuts for it up here. Did you

:48:43.:49:00.

hear them stamping. You go home and watch the comments and then you take

:49:01.:49:03.

it seriously. Of course, because you have to learn and do better every

:49:04.:49:06.

week. That's what I've been trying to do. Today was not the best. We

:49:07.:49:09.

were so much better in rehearsals. I'm still learning and doing my

:49:10.:49:16.

best. Thank you so much. The scores are in:

:49:17.:49:35.

Goodness me. Never mind that. That's not the lowest paso score. That's

:49:36.:49:44.

fair. You're saying it's fair. Everyone cuddle him.

night garden, please don't tell me what happens, I taped it.

Dancing next is Naga Munchetty and her partner, Pasha Kovalev.

Their Charleston is set under water to a song called

Naga is the mermaid and Pasha is a deep-sea diver.

:50:15.:50:18.

Fingers crossed the judges will fall for them -

:50:19.:50:20.

Good job last weekend. Thanks. I know it was quite... Intense. A

:50:21.:50:34.

stressful Glynning. The -- beginning. The buckle didn't want to

:50:35.:50:39.

unbuckle. Well recovered. Enjoyed it though. You are better than you

:50:40.:50:43.

think you are. You've got to come out and show us. That really

:50:44.:50:48.

resonated. I need to believe that I can do the dances and not worry

:50:49.:50:51.

about comparing myself to other people. And just focus on us, go out

:50:52.:50:56.

and enjoy it. Good job. This week in her

:50:57.:51:04.

charleston Naga is looking forward to playing a mermaid. Pasha wants

:51:05.:51:14.

thatta out of the training -- Naga out of the training room. I'm here.

:51:15.:51:19.

You took it quite literal. We're thot getting in the water. Amazing.

:51:20.:51:24.

It's quite good. I wanted you to meet your new friends. Hi. Make

:51:25.:51:27.

yourself comfortable and get ready for the dance. So we can make a

:51:28.:51:33.

splash with this dance, can't we? What? Dancing in an under water

:51:34.:51:42.

tunnel gave us the chance to feel how it would be dancing on the water

:51:43.:51:46.

with the fish around us. I think I could stay here for hours. I know we

:51:47.:51:51.

are finished here. We have to go back to flipping - I mean dancing.

:51:52.:51:58.

This has really helped me. I'm channelling my inner mermaid for

:51:59.:52:00.

Saturday night. I think it's going to go swimmingly.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Oh, that was wonderful. Well done.

:53:36.:53:51.

They're on their feet over there. That made a big splash with the

:53:52.:53:56.

audience. I love the wig. First time you've had to embrace comedy. Well

:53:57.:53:59.

done, my lovely. What do you think, Bruno? Fun under water, a bit

:54:00.:54:05.

slippery on dry land, but then again, from a mermaid you would

:54:06.:54:09.

expect that. I was finding my legs. I have to say, most of the time, you

:54:10.:54:13.

were on it. Not all the way through, because the charleston is all about

:54:14.:54:17.

keeping the very, very sharp scissor action. You lost timing in a little

:54:18.:54:22.

section in the middle, but great fun and great character.

:54:23.:54:31.

Thank you. Craig. Yes, the timing was off, sadly. It was very messy.

:54:32.:54:35.

It wasn't clean enough. There was no cross, there was no swivel. You put

:54:36.:54:40.

your body into it, unfortunately it wasn't translated to the feet. Did

:54:41.:54:47.

it make you smile? The smile was wonderful, darling. But it didn't

:54:48.:54:52.

stop the lift looking like she was being harpooned. It was messy.

:54:53.:54:58.

You're a mermaid. He's a bit crabby. Really you have worked so hard at

:54:59.:55:03.

the characterisation. It was fun, it was quirky. There was lots of energy

:55:04.:55:07.

through. It I think you got so excited that everything was working

:55:08.:55:10.

so well, it's just when you came out of the lift you went wrong with the

:55:11.:55:13.

timing. Understandably, because it has made such an improvement, well

:55:14.:55:17.

done. Well done. Naga did have confidence

:55:18.:55:23.

issues, you thought last week, Len, did you think better tonight? 100%.

:55:24.:55:27.

You certainly came out of your shell. Honestly. Plenty of motion in

:55:28.:55:35.

the ocean. I remember once you, Craig, saying, I didn't like the

:55:36.:55:38.

charleston because it was too neat and precise. Now you've changed your

:55:39.:55:44.

mind, this is too slapstick and fun. I don't get what you're on about.

:55:45.:55:48.

I'm telling you, you came out, you sold it. First time I've seen you

:55:49.:55:52.

really confident. First time I think I've seen you smile. You really came

:55:53.:55:56.

out and give it a good go. Well done.

:55:57.:55:59.

We all really enjoy seeing your fun side. Keep smiling. Off you go to

:56:00.:56:03.

Claudia. Naga and Pasha!

:56:04.:56:04.

APPLAUSE Very, very well done you two. It's

:56:05.:56:17.

like a new Naga. It was like the char son you went, oh, my God this

:56:18.:56:22.

whole thing... It's so much fun. Loved it all week. Been the best

:56:23.:56:23.

week. Well done. The scores are in: 24, Brendan Cole shouting "under

:56:24.:56:53.

marked" best eyebrows I've ever seen in many my life -- in my life.

:56:54.:56:55.

Still to come, Danny is conducting an orchestra. Bizarre job swap

moment. Dave Arch is doing a quickstep - we haven't told him.

Dancing next and hoping to impress is Louise Redknapp

:57:11.:57:13.

APPLAUSE In their routine Louise uses a TV

:57:14.:57:24.

remote to control Kevin and make him dance with her.

:57:25.:57:26.

We could re-wind him back to the last time he said something nice...

:57:27.:57:35.

Last week, for me, was like one of those moments I'll never forget. The

:57:36.:57:48.

bit where I went to the judges, Bruno was actually doing the same

:57:49.:57:53.

move I was doing. I could feel my smile getting bigger and bigger. I

:57:54.:57:58.

think I knew most of the steps. You passed the audition. You were great.

:57:59.:58:03.

That in itself made my night. Really proud of you. You smashed it. Every

:58:04.:58:07.

day there's a bigger spring in my step. I love it a little bit more

:58:08.:58:17.

each day. It's Tuesday. I'm on my way to go and meet Kevin. I'm doing

:58:18.:58:21.

the foxtrot, which is all back in hold. Ballroom shoes at the ready.

:58:22.:58:29.

Fortunately for you, you've come into Strictly on a year where the

:58:30.:58:33.

standard is so incredibly high. I'm struggling with lots. But the heel

:58:34.:58:38.

spin, definitely. Means that we've got to keep the pressure on in

:58:39.:58:43.

training as much as possible. Come on, I can do this. Foxtrot is

:58:44.:58:47.

different to anything we've done so far. It's a new set of rules for

:58:48.:58:51.

Louise There's so much going into it. I'm pretty exhausted. Feet and

:58:52.:58:58.

calves will be killing tonight. I am practising at all hours. I spent all

:58:59.:59:02.

last week having straight legs. This week's all about getting down into

:59:03.:59:07.

my knees, making it smooth. Need to push through and technically nail

:59:08.:59:12.

the foxtrot. Now it's like you feel more comfortable being there. I'm

:59:13.:59:16.

practising here. I'm practising loads at home. I really hope it all

:59:17.:59:18.

pays off on Saturday night. Dancing the foxtrot,

by Amy Winehouse. APPLAUSE

:59:25.:01:18.

Just gorgeous. Come here, sweetheart. You look

:01:19.:01:23.

beautiful. I know you have been working so hard, dancing day and

:01:24.:01:28.

night, dancing at home. Did she learn it technically? I really and

:01:29.:01:35.

truly enjoyed that performance. You have a fantastic sense of rhythm and

:01:36.:01:40.

musicality and it was clean and engaging, gorgeous. I loved how you

:01:41.:01:51.

set the scene from the beginning because the narrative went into the

:01:52.:01:57.

dance and you continued that and how you extended. Sometimes you look

:01:58.:02:01.

incredibly comfortable. I think it is because you are an natural

:02:02.:02:06.

dancer. I would love if Kevin could push you because the confidence is

:02:07.:02:11.

flowing. You just get a little bit relying on that natural quality that

:02:12.:02:15.

you have, which is stunning, that now I want you to drive her. I can

:02:16.:02:20.

see all the ability there, but I want a little bit more. Show it off.

:02:21.:02:30.

Len. Excellent footwork. Very well done. You must have worked very

:02:31.:02:38.

hard. You were even on occasions drawing back of your heel. The

:02:39.:02:43.

problem was you got a little bit too far on Kevin's right side. Instead

:02:44.:02:49.

of being right to right centre, you were absolutely on his right side,

:02:50.:02:55.

which made your right arm stretched out a little bit. Well, it is the

:02:56.:03:00.

truth. What is the matter with you? I am going to give you a good mark

:03:01.:03:08.

because the footwork you nailed it. A lady that hot will always win the

:03:09.:03:16.

argument. It was a delicious soap opera set to music, danced

:03:17.:03:21.

exquisitely. The storytelling was brilliant. You execute every move

:03:22.:03:27.

with such grace and ease and you play the part stunningly. What more

:03:28.:03:33.

can I say? It was great. We have high expectations for you. Off you

:03:34.:03:35.

go to Claudia. Well done. CHEERING

:03:36.:03:51.

Well done, you must have been over the moon.

:03:52.:03:54.

Len said excellent footwork and I know you tried so hard. I did. You

:03:55.:04:01.

are doing it on the school run. I was doing it in my slippers in the

:04:02.:04:09.

morning. You got on my feet. I was watching your mother and your mother

:04:10.:04:13.

in law's phase and they were holding hands. The scores are in.

:04:14.:04:18.

Still to come, Daisy dances to a George Michael song

:04:52.:04:54.

Apparently she's been careless with her Whispa.

:04:55.:05:06.

Our next couple is Danny Mac and his partner Oti Mabuse.

:05:07.:05:09.

Last week Danny wowed the judges with his Paso Doble.

:05:10.:05:11.

Len was particularly impressed when he did the Coup de Pique.

:05:12.:05:14.

But after the flying start he's had to the series,

:05:15.:05:18.

has Danny 'Coup de peaked' too soon.

:05:19.:05:27.

Last week was the hardest routine we had. Did you enjoy it? Yes, until

:05:28.:05:38.

the judges started speaking. The timing, the shaping, the lines were

:05:39.:05:46.

excellent. It was incredible. 49s, I am so happy. It made it all

:05:47.:05:54.

worthwhile. This week's style is the quick step which I know nothing

:05:55.:06:00.

about. It is a very fun dance and people are supposed to jump up and

:06:01.:06:05.

enjoy it. The character he is playing is a conductor of an

:06:06.:06:09.

orchestra. I have a surprise for you and it is right in here. Are you

:06:10.:06:21.

ready? I think so. Hello. I brought Danny here because we have a quick

:06:22.:06:25.

step and he has to be the conductor of an orchestra. You have come to

:06:26.:06:32.

the right place. What do I do? Conducting is interpreting the music

:06:33.:06:36.

and conveying it through gesture, or dancing in your case. It turns out I

:06:37.:06:46.

am a terrible conductor. I think this young lady was a bit off, but

:06:47.:06:53.

apart from that it was ace. Let me go. Needless to say, she was

:06:54.:07:01.

marvellous. Conducting may not be my forte, but hopefully I will have no

:07:02.:07:06.

trouble on Saturday night. My jokes always fall flat!

MUSIC: I Won't Dance by Fred Astaire.

:07:18.:08:45.

CHEERING You certainly did dance.

:08:46.:09:07.

So much complicated content in there. Well done. It just keeps on

:09:08.:09:14.

going. It was pure class. How was it? That was pure class. When you

:09:15.:09:22.

were up on the stage I could not wait for it to start. What you

:09:23.:09:28.

produce up there I wanted you to get on the dance floor and I thought,

:09:29.:09:33.

yes, and he could do it and you sailed. It was outstanding. You led

:09:34.:09:40.

her, you were in control of the dance and that is something that is

:09:41.:09:44.

very difficult for a male celebrity to be able to do. That is one of the

:09:45.:09:50.

best, classic, quickstep 's I have ever seen. Len? There were some

:09:51.:09:58.

lovely touches and you got a bit of subway going which you do not see

:09:59.:10:04.

happening. Up on there it got on my wick in the end. It was a tad too

:10:05.:10:10.

long. But once you came down here you looked good and you danced good

:10:11.:10:20.

and by Godley, you did good. He did as all good. The talented Danny in a

:10:21.:10:30.

dazzling display of dancing. It was exciting, right up there with Fred

:10:31.:10:35.

Astaire. I love that style and it has been revived with such energy

:10:36.:10:40.

and you performed it with such zest. It was like being back in these

:10:41.:10:46.

Hollywood movies. It was absolutely wonderful. We will stop at Fred

:10:47.:11:01.

Astaire. Danny Mac, you are on fire, darling! Craig is applauding. I

:11:02.:11:11.

think I might need a lie down. Off you go to Claudia.

:11:12.:11:24.

CHEERING Well done, I want to talk about the

:11:25.:11:30.

dance, but can I confirm your magnificent man dresses her dogs,

:11:31.:11:37.

Bailey and Barney, to match the outfits every week.

:11:38.:11:45.

This is tonight. Word as Rowell last week? This is amazing, can you send

:11:46.:11:51.

in everything you have. You wanted to do the quickstep. And I was a kid

:11:52.:11:57.

I have wanted to dress up like this and dance like that and I have

:11:58.:12:01.

always wanted to try, so that was an amazing feeling.

:12:02.:12:07.

Well done. The same as last week. Very well done, the highest score of

:12:08.:12:32.

the night. That is ridiculous. Your dancing is ridiculous.

I love learning to dance. I am having such a joy doing it. Every

:12:49.:13:00.

week I say, this is my favourite dance. Anyone who can waltz can do a

:13:01.:13:06.

marathon. This dance is so much more open than I thought it was going to

:13:07.:13:12.

be. Even now I am panting like a dog in the desert, I am enjoying it. I

:13:13.:13:21.

am loving the experience so much, everyone is so exceptional at

:13:22.:13:24.

dancing it is making me quite scared this week.

:13:25.:13:29.

Yes, I can't wait to see Daisy's routine.

:13:30.:13:33.

She's dancing to the George Michael song Careless something.

:13:34.:13:35.

(Whispers) She's dancing to the George Michael

:13:36.:13:38.

It's Daisy Lowe her dance partner, Aljaz Skorjanec.

:13:39.:13:50.

Last week, Daisy danced as the children's favourite Mary Poppins.

:13:51.:13:54.

Tonight she's getting all grown up with an intimate rumba.

:13:55.:13:58.

But will this passionate performance get our judges all loved up?

:13:59.:14:09.

Last Saturday, I was so excited that we got to do a movie of our

:14:10.:14:19.

quickstep. We look so good. My favourite part was clicking my

:14:20.:14:23.

fingers and then you appeared, I was really chuffed with that. It was the

:14:24.:14:30.

neatest footwork I have seen. That was special feedback because I am

:14:31.:14:37.

completely in love with her. Super colour of a tool is that a

:14:38.:14:43.

commission mark good job. Thanks. This week I am excited about doing

:14:44.:14:50.

the rumba. At the moment we are putting more attention into the

:14:51.:14:55.

technique. Keep your toes on the floor. I am going to have to be a

:14:56.:15:03.

bit strict this week. I would have thought it would be difficult to

:15:04.:15:07.

take Al-Jazeera you see when he is cracking the whip, but he is quite

:15:08.:15:12.

scary. When he is found, you know he means business. I really want to

:15:13.:15:17.

push her because I know we can go a step higher. I have been doing some

:15:18.:15:22.

homework. It is frustrating getting it wrong. Over and over again. Let's

:15:23.:15:31.

do this again. I feel she has so much potential and talent and I want

:15:32.:15:35.

to dig into that and make sure we deliver a beautiful dance this

:15:36.:15:41.

weekend. And again. I am happy I have put the hard work in this

:15:42.:15:45.

weekend, I am happy to get on that dance floor and do it justice.

:15:46.:15:50.

Dancing the rumba, Daisy Lowe and Aljaz Skorjanec.

MUSIC: Careless Whisper by George Michael.

:15:54.:17:27.

Walk those lovely legs over here, lady.

:17:28.:17:44.

You didn't just walk it, you stalked it. It was gorgeous, nothing

:17:45.:17:50.

careless about that, darling. Rumbas are notoriously difficult. What did

:17:51.:17:54.

you think? You're totally correct. It's a bit like Len's lens. It's

:17:55.:17:59.

slowed so you see any plunders. You're not lazy, Daisy, because you

:18:00.:18:04.

have worked hard. I love, see, little things please me. I can't

:18:05.:18:08.

help myself. I love that forward half, then out to fan. Then you even

:18:09.:18:14.

got the eighth a turn as you closed. Yes, shut up. And into another. I

:18:15.:18:19.

love all that little. The things that get passed by. I liked them. I

:18:20.:18:24.

thought it was a terrifically difficult dance and you did a

:18:25.:18:27.

terrifically good job. Thank you so much. Careless whispers, more like

:18:28.:18:38.

breathless judge. I am tingling all overment I'm shivering. I'm panting

:18:39.:18:41.

to the point of turning. Oh, you do things to me. Your intint in the

:18:42.:18:48.

dance was just spectacular. -- intent. Seriously now, we talk about

:18:49.:18:54.

content a lot. You had in there every single rumba step that you

:18:55.:18:59.

would want to see in a rumba. You didn't skip out anything. Even the

:19:00.:19:02.

most difficult. You kept the flow going most of it. Just at one time

:19:03.:19:07.

you stopped a little bit the flow, maybe because you felt a little bit

:19:08.:19:11.

insecure, but I'm telling you what you put into this dance is what we

:19:12.:19:15.

should see in every rumba. Next time, be more fluid, all the way

:19:16.:19:20.

through. Not just in some moves. I loved it.

:19:21.:19:27.

Hard work is paying off. Craig. I thought your free arm lacked a

:19:28.:19:33.

little direction and definition. By that I mean a tone and resistance as

:19:34.:19:38.

the arm goes out. It seems to just land there and then waft around a

:19:39.:19:41.

bit without any sort of strength behind it. You have to be able to

:19:42.:19:46.

make it fluid and not stiff, obviously, but have tone and

:19:47.:19:52.

resistance. I do think it lacked a little bit of chemistry for me.

:19:53.:19:56.

What? I know my colleagues probably don't agrow with me. But I -- agree

:19:57.:20:00.

with me. I think there could have been more of an emotional

:20:01.:20:03.

connection. Goodness me. I was feeling it. I don't. Darcey

:20:04.:20:13.

disagrees. I do not agree with you. You use your whole body to stress

:20:14.:20:18.

that emotion without doubt. Long, languid moves. Very difficult to

:20:19.:20:22.

control and sustain. To get that balance every time you stretched

:20:23.:20:26.

out, very impressive. I mean, really. That is a very difficult

:20:27.:20:34.

dance. Do not listen to him. A lot of love for the judges. We've fallen

:20:35.:20:39.

in love with your rumba. Off you go to Claudia, well done, darling.

:20:40.:20:42.

Daisy and Aljaz! APPLAUSE

:20:43.:20:52.

Very, very well done. You know what's so adorable, I heard you say

:20:53.:20:58.

this week, Strictly is the best experience of your life It is.

:20:59.:21:02.

You're really enjoying yourself. Even when he gets strict like this

:21:03.:21:05.

week. I think it's important that he's strict with me. I want to be

:21:06.:21:11.

better. You did great. I can be stricter.

:21:12.:21:12.

Scores are in. Same score as last week. You're so

:21:13.:21:35.

cute. With the seven, you went, "That's OK. I'm pleased."

:21:36.:21:38.

Still to come, Lesley and Anton dance to the song

:21:48.:21:50.

Does anyone know what dance they're doing?

:21:51.:21:52.

Dancing next is Judge Rinder and his partner Oksana Platero.

:21:53.:22:00.

They're doing a Viennese Waltz to the song 'Boom Bang a Bang'.

:22:01.:22:05.

It's the song that won Lulu the Eurovision Song Contest,

:22:06.:22:10.

and our Judge is hoping, it won't get 'nil-point',

:22:11.:22:12.

I'm going to give that a U certificate, you entertained, you

:22:13.:22:25.

made us all smile but you made a few mistakes along the way. It's a shame

:22:26.:22:29.

because the rehearsal was going so well. I want to do better next week.

:22:30.:22:37.

You're very cute as a caveman. I want to say that made my day, but it

:22:38.:22:42.

made my life really. Made me feel like I'm in competition. I think

:22:43.:22:47.

he's cute. Two women competing for me. A phrase I never thought I'd

:22:48.:22:51.

use, to be honest. This week it's the Viennese waltz to one of the

:22:52.:22:54.

most beautiful and memorable songs of all time. It's Lulu's Boom Bang a

:22:55.:23:02.

Bang. A personal favourite. What's really difficult about the Viennese

:23:03.:23:06.

waltz? You need to make sure you're not going to get too dizzy and fall.

:23:07.:23:11.

I'm very, very dizzy. Welcome to Viennese waltz. Making it round the

:23:12.:23:17.

room is a challenge. You've got to go round and round, and round and

:23:18.:23:20.

round - sorry, another question, I'm feeling a bit sick. The really hard

:23:21.:23:24.

thing is to be calm enough to enjoy it and let it flow. That's hard when

:23:25.:23:28.

you're as nervous as I am all the time. Think about it less. Relax.

:23:29.:23:32.

OK. When it flows, it's effortless and beautiful. When it doesn't, it

:23:33.:23:41.

looks like a horrible crash. I love the Viennese waltz. I want to get it

:23:42.:23:44.

right. One thing I want more than anything is for the hearts of the

:23:45.:23:47.

judges to go boom bang-a about bang. Dancing the Viennese Waltz,

:23:48.:23:56.

Judge Rinder and Oksana Platero I'm loving the lederhosen. Isn't it

:23:57.:25:56.

marvellous. It is. Like Boris Becker. I know! I look like a young

:25:57.:26:01.

Boris Becker. LAUGHTER

:26:02.:26:06.

He might beg to differ. Bruno, did that flow for you? I have to say, it

:26:07.:26:11.

was unusually restrained by your usual standard. Don't you think? You

:26:12.:26:17.

went straight in hold, lots of proper Viennese waltz content. You

:26:18.:26:22.

did it quite well overall. Be careful don't swing your arms like

:26:23.:26:27.

cow bells. I know, you know, a bit more fluid. A bit more graceful, I'm

:26:28.:26:32.

sorry, I've got a cold. I have to say, I was impressed because you

:26:33.:26:36.

don't have to do craziness all the time because you can actually dance

:26:37.:26:40.

when you want to. You can dance. Did your heart go

:26:41.:26:48.

boom bang-a--bang, Craig? No, it did not. But I can say this, your facial

:26:49.:26:55.

expressions are on the up, darling. Improving. Until the second part,

:26:56.:27:01.

where I think you lost that. You went into that goofy thing and the

:27:02.:27:05.

open mouth scenario came back. You know, there is a dancer, a delicious

:27:06.:27:10.

dancer actually hidden underneath all of that. I just can't wait to

:27:11.:27:16.

see it, my love. He's teasing you. Darcey. It's true,

:27:17.:27:21.

when you're in hold, you're actually in control of the dance. I really

:27:22.:27:25.

feel there is going to be some lovely quality throughout. I

:27:26.:27:32.

wouldn't say this to other people, I don't you to overexaggerate. It's

:27:33.:27:37.

only when you come out of hold, don't get upset. It's only when you

:27:38.:27:42.

come out of hold I see the preparation. I see you overthinking.

:27:43.:27:46.

You don't need to. I mean, I think it grinded a bit with the narrative,

:27:47.:27:50.

the story you were telling, but I don't think you need that. There's a

:27:51.:27:53.

lot of quality in there, as the boys have said already. I think we want

:27:54.:27:58.

to see that now. Bringing the dancer out. Len. I

:27:59.:28:04.

liked it. I liked the rotation, natural turns, reverse turns. I

:28:05.:28:09.

enjoyed that. I once told - trust me, I once told someone who was a

:28:10.:28:18.

bit like you, a few committeedic elements -- comedic elements, you

:28:19.:28:23.

are a about thor dancer. -- you are a better dancer. He cut them out and

:28:24.:28:28.

he went home the next week! Do what you do. You have a great balance

:28:29.:28:32.

between good dancing, a bit of fun and I enjoy it.

:28:33.:28:38.

So great to watch. We all enjoy it. We love what you do. Keep doing it.

:28:39.:28:43.

Take your lady and your lederhosen upstairs to Claudia.

:28:44.:28:45.

APPLAUSE We absolutely loved it. Quite

:28:46.:29:02.

differing views there. Some of them saying be serious. Then Len going,

:29:03.:29:09.

you're hillarious, continue. You ask three lawyers the same question, you

:29:10.:29:13.

get three different answers. Same with the judges. Isn't she

:29:14.:29:18.

beautiful. My Heidi. I know. The scores are in.

:29:19.:29:34.

27, are you all right with that? Same score as the last two weeks.

:29:35.:29:37.

Well done. ( If you loved Judge Rinder

:29:58.:29:59.

and her partner, Anton Du Beke. This week they're

:30:00.:30:01.

doing a Charleston. It's a dance that involves a lot

:30:02.:30:05.

of cheeky moves, fun choreography I've got a feeling they could

:30:06.:30:08.

be quite good at it. I really loved that dance. I thought

:30:09.:30:26.

you were brilliant and I love what you did. You are a golden oldie from

:30:27.:30:32.

the silver screen and I thought you were great. To be left literally to

:30:33.:30:40.

the last to be told you are saved, I did not think it could be that nerve

:30:41.:30:43.

wracking, but I am pleased we are through. This week's training takes

:30:44.:30:50.

many miles away from Elstree in Malta due to her busy schedule. I am

:30:51.:30:56.

here on holiday... Training. Leslie is filming and it is very exciting.

:30:57.:31:01.

I don't know where she gets her energy from. How is it going? Very

:31:02.:31:08.

well. I know you are busy, but this week we are doing the charleston. I

:31:09.:31:16.

need you on set. I need to work. I went on set at five o'clock and I

:31:17.:31:22.

worked off at eight o'clock and I was training for three hours. It was

:31:23.:31:28.

exhausting. She is busy and she is a fitting it all in and doing a

:31:29.:31:34.

tremendous job. They are all going to come and watch us do the number.

:31:35.:31:38.

Do you know how nerve wracking that will be? If you can do it in front

:31:39.:31:45.

of them, you can do it in front of everyone. You were fantastic. We are

:31:46.:31:54.

really proud of her. She gives 100%. You are amazing, honestly. Good

:31:55.:32:00.

luck, we are rooting for you, we are right behind you. You will be

:32:01.:32:04.

brilliant, you always are. You will be brilliant,

:32:05.:32:05.

you always are. Dancing the Charleston,

Lesley Joseph and Anton Du Beke. MUSIC: Won't You Charleston with me?

:32:08.:32:10.

By The Boyfriend. APPLAUSE

:32:11.:33:37.

Leslie and Anton, you have a very busy week,

:33:38.:33:52.

but it does not slow you down. You do not disappoint. There she

:33:53.:34:03.

keep surprising you, Craig? Yes, you do. That is shocking... Shockingly

:34:04.:34:09.

good. I do not know how you get through it. I could never keep that

:34:10.:34:15.

much stamina going for that length of time. It is absolutely

:34:16.:34:20.

incredible. You shocked me each time. It was strong and vibrant. You

:34:21.:34:25.

ran out of steam a little bit at the end with the swivel and the cross,

:34:26.:34:29.

but I loved it. I was exhausted watching you. You bring such a

:34:30.:34:36.

cheeky, fun, naughty, little girl to this. And the confidence, that

:34:37.:34:41.

showed with the amount of dance content. Those high kicks and,

:34:42.:34:46.

Anton, you are having a great time dancing with her. I could not keep

:34:47.:34:56.

up dancing with her. It is your birthday this week I understand...

:34:57.:34:58.

APPLAUSE That was definitely your best dance

:34:59.:35:12.

to date and if you keep that up, you will have many happy returns! Well

:35:13.:35:21.

done. You always deliver, you were the

:35:22.:35:25.

perfect gangster mole. You looked like a 20-year-old out there. Apart

:35:26.:35:30.

from the characterisation and the personality, you are great actor, so

:35:31.:35:38.

you do that perfectly. Your timing was right on it and you were placed

:35:39.:35:42.

correctly and you did not lose your time and your performance was very

:35:43.:35:47.

high all the way through. I think you did a fantastic job, my darling.

:35:48.:35:55.

Fantastic comets, what a lovely birthday present. This is the first

:35:56.:35:58.

time I can talk, it has taken me until now. Many happy returns.

:35:59.:36:22.

He is having the time of his life. What an extraordinary schedule. I am

:36:23.:36:31.

up at five every morning filming and he has been out in Malta by the

:36:32.:36:35.

swimming pool, and then we have been training. It is exhausting. It has

:36:36.:36:41.

been very hectic. Your daughter is here. The scores are in.

:36:42.:36:47.

Your highest score. She is a dream, dream! That you very much. If you

:36:48.:37:28.

want to see them back next week, please vote for them. All the

:37:29.:37:33.

details are on your screen. Just one more couple left to dance.

:37:34.:37:34.

And our final couple is Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton.

:37:35.:37:39.

Last week, Ore's American Smooth wowed us all and he landed

:37:40.:37:43.

This week, he's doing the jive, and we've got some tissues ready

:37:44.:37:52.

Last Saturday was one of the best night of my life. Amazing, just

:37:53.:38:09.

amazing. I am astounded how good that was. It was just such an

:38:10.:38:17.

emotional night. So for me it has just lit up. I could not believe

:38:18.:38:24.

Gene Kelly's widow coming. He would have been proud. I cannot believe

:38:25.:38:34.

it. It was unbelievable. This week we are dancing the jive and you need

:38:35.:38:39.

stamina and energy and loads of flips. This is not for the

:38:40.:38:44.

faint-hearted or slow footed. What are we going to do to up my game?

:38:45.:38:50.

There is one place I can take you where footwork, stamina, energy and

:38:51.:38:56.

performance is important. You can practice all your kicks and your

:38:57.:39:00.

stamina and your performance. Wow, Wembley. I have brought him to

:39:01.:39:07.

Wembley Stadium to practice his kicks and his flips. We are at

:39:08.:39:13.

Wembley. He came here today thinking he was going to have a kickabout

:39:14.:39:19.

with a ball. No way. She has had me jiving everywhere, up the stairs and

:39:20.:39:24.

in the dressing room and in the panel. I have not stopped jiving

:39:25.:39:31.

since I got here. Yes! Are you having a nap. No, I am tired from

:39:32.:39:40.

all the jiving. Unbelievable. Saturday night, I am coming to get

:39:41.:39:41.

Saturday night, I am coming to get you.

:39:42.:39:43.

Dancing the jive, Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton.

:39:44.:39:49.

Oh, my goodness me! Wow! I have not seen a reaction like this in a long

:39:50.:41:59.

time in this studio. U2 better not run away anywhere, you are

:42:00.:42:06.

brilliant. Antarctica. Dicey, your comments last week made him very

:42:07.:42:10.

emotional, will he bring his tissues again? No, I will need those

:42:11.:42:19.

tissues. How you understand each dance that is thrown at you, you

:42:20.:42:25.

just take it on board. You are one athlete. The stamina is

:42:26.:42:33.

unbelievable. To be able to get that retraction on each of those kicks.

:42:34.:42:43.

And what you did over there, and none of them failed with the energy

:42:44.:42:47.

and the attack that you gave them. Outstanding. You have set the so

:42:48.:42:55.

high that jive. It was so impressive. It was show stopping,

:42:56.:43:08.

jaw-dropping, eye-popping jive. Listen, I thought last week was

:43:09.:43:16.

fantastic. You have had a week. A week or four days or five days.

:43:17.:43:20.

Listen, move over, Jay. We might need tissues on stand-by.

:43:21.:43:40.

Bruno, you were standing up. Ladies and gentlemen, a star is born. You

:43:41.:43:49.

have a runaway jive as good as anybody you have ever seen. It is

:43:50.:43:56.

the trinity of a jive with Jill, Jay and barley. The momentum and the

:43:57.:44:05.

synchronicity. Again I have to congratulate you for putting very

:44:06.:44:10.

imaginative touches into it. The swinging 60s, but you never lost the

:44:11.:44:14.

jive. It drove through the dancer constantly. You never lost it. You

:44:15.:44:26.

were on it. Trying so hard. Craig. The game has finally changed,

:44:27.:44:31.

darling, you either to beat. You know what? I hope Danny Mac was

:44:32.:44:39.

watching that because he has got a big load of competition. It is on. I

:44:40.:44:47.

am so sorry I have got no tissues for you. You are trying so hard to

:44:48.:44:51.

keep it in. You are amazing. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:44:52.:45:09.

For you. For you. Not again! We really love you for it. It was all

:45:10.:45:14.

about for you, you wanted to beat Jay. They said, "Move over Jay."

:45:15.:45:21.

You're the one to beat. Well done. This is the dance I've loved the

:45:22.:45:25.

most. Jo absolutely packed it full just because I know she wanted me to

:45:26.:45:32.

remember it. You're so cute. Ah, stop crying! Very well done. The

:45:33.:45:35.

scores are in. CHEERING Yes! Well done.

:45:36.:46:15.

Are you all right? He's all right. No, I'm not. That is extraordinary.

:46:16.:46:24.

Week four. Really, well done to you. We need tissues! We've got tissues.

:46:25.:46:27.

Well done. If you enjoyed Ore and Joanne's jive

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman invite you to join them for another evening of sequins and sparkles as the 13 remaining couples hit the dance floor for a ballroom battle to stay in 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.
