Last week there were successes. Fantastic. And setbacks. Anastacia
and Brendan cannot perform again. As we said goodbye to our first
celebrity. The couple with the fewest number of viewer votes,
Melvin and Jeannette. This weekly's Movie Week and the stars are lining
up to tell us all about their latest blockbuster. Who was your
inspiration? Elizabeth Taylor... Well, Liz. How did you prepare for
the role? I did a lot of fishing. Spending quite a lot of time with my
toy panda. I asked for a skinny try mocha Geno. I imagine myself as a
monkey. Silly sausage, silly sausage. What can we expect? I wait
I perform, I am. Oscars. Right, let's have a look at this...

So let's get started - Opening the show tonight
is is Daisy Lowe and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec.
This week Daisy's doing a Quickstep to "A Spoonful
of Sugar" from Mary Poppins - and if the last two weeks
are anything to go by, this routine could be
It was the first elimination week, how did you find Saturday night? I
was so scared, but when I got to dancing I actually really enjoyed
it. Got a little bone to pick with you. We did an illegal lift. Both
feet came off the ground, that was the ground. He's right, we did it.
This week Daisy at Aljaz are dancing the quick step to a song for Mary
Poppins. I got you a present so we can get into character. Thank you.
You're welcome, Mary Poppins. I hope your choreography is better than
your Dick Van Dyke. It really messy... Lets see if this Mary
Poppins thing really works. The quickstep as a dance is so fast,
there are so many steps. I lost it completely. But it is really fun.
Mary Poppins has magical powers. But for Daisy I want to take those
magical powers and put them into dancing powers. Good... I'm good.
I've had such a giggle learning the quickstep I hope it'll be all right
on the night. It's going to be practically perfect every way.
Dancing the Quickstep from the movie Mary Poppins,
Yes! Well done, Daisy at Aljaz. You make the perfect Mary Poppins.
While you two catch your breath let's
welcome our fabulous live singers Hayley, Lance, Andrea,
Tommy and of course Dave Arch and his brilliant orchestra.
Well done, what an opener. Is Daisy proving to be consistent? She
certainly is. I've got to say, you pulled a lot of stuff out of that
bag and you pulled out all the stops on that quickstep. You really did.
In the quickstep you look for three things, hold, posture, movement.
Lovely hold, great posture, and gorgeous movement down the floor.
Well done. CHEERING Round the whole floor. Bruno. I
think Tess got it right earlier on. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Daisy! It had such a supreme elegance. It's like Mary Poppins
that has been redesigned by Christian Dior. Beautiful to look
at. And so light on your feet, like you were floating on air. It sent me
on cloud nine. Wonderful. How about you, Craig? I thought the charleston
section is needed to be a little more precise and delivered with a
lighter touch, I thought they were a little bit heavy. BOOING
. Your left shoulder was raised by millimetres, twice. I thought you
followed Aljaz's lead brilliantly and you danced so well together.
Wonderful to see. I love it when he ends on a positive. It was the
neatest footwork I've seen. To be liked and dainty and have long
limbs, when you are tall like you, it's not easy. It was incredibly
impressive. One tiny correction, your upper body could be slightly
more taut. More core strength. It'll only condiment your top line.
Beautiful work. Practically perfect in every way. In
every way. Thank you, Daisy. Come on, Mary. CHEERING
Well done. You adored being Mary Poppins. I did, I really loved it.
Darcey said incredibly impressive. You worked so hard to get that
perfect footwork. Really hard. It's a really hard, fast routine,
quickstep is always tough. To go out first. Brilliant. Well done, Mary.
Scores are in. Ladies and Ferman, the judges have their scores. Craig
Revel Horwood. Seven. Darcey Bussell. Eight. Len Goodman. Eight.

Terms and Conditions. Voting won't open until all our
couples have danced. Your vote won't count
and you may still be charged. No one wants to leave
the competition, but with the lowest combined judges
score and viewer votes Our next couple is Anastacia
and Brendan Cole. After suffering
an injury last week Anastacia was unable to perform
in the dance-off. But we all know she's a real fighter
and she's back this week - and raring to go, with
a Viennese Waltz from Twilight. Last Saturday was so hard because I
had injured myself. It was haphazard. We decided to
change because of the injuries. I was disappointed. The pain was so
bad and I was in the bottom two. Anastacia and Brendan cannot perform
again. There will be no dance. The couple with the fewest number of
votes will be leaving. I remember thinking, thank you for giving me
this opportunity, universe. We are still here, so well done you.
Anastacia has come to her specialist to find out how her injury will
impact on her dancing. The verdict is better than I thought so I am
going to continue. The couple head straight to the training room and
get cracking on varied team. I want to focus on the soft Anastacia. We
are doing a song from the Twilight movie. The sun itself melts me. I
look forward to a beautiful dance which this one is. I am very excited
about dancing to this on Saturday. CHEERING
Dancing the Viennese Waltz from the Twilight movie,
Anastacia, well done, darling. How are you? Good, very good. You look
beautiful. That is what I call a love story, packed full of romance.
And your first ballroom? My first ever. Ballroom is very beautiful.
Lets see if Bruno agrees. It was very, very nice, my darling. Very
sweet, it was very simple. Very correct. Brendan guided you
beautifully. You have to be careful... It is the mint, I'm
sorry. You have to make sure you don't lose your balance. You have to
go out of the... Sorry, Len! You nearly had his eye out. Any moment
of unsteadiness. Very proper. The shoulders were slightly up,
especially through the pivots. Bruno was right, you were losing balance
going into the turns. Out of turns, I was hoping it would be a little
bit smoother. But I have to say, you have come back with an enormous
sense of confidence, and I think that... Darcey, darling. It had a
beautiful quality from beginning to end. I think people forget that the
DNA use is very difficult. Constantly turning and having to
find your focus and then do the transition and change, that is
difficult to learn especially when you have lights flashing in your
face. You have a beautiful neck and shoulders and I think you could work
that and really indulge in your top line. But very nice, very nice. Len.
It was quiet, understated and it had a class about it. I thought a lovely
rotation. I am glad you're better and I am glad you are dancing
better. Lovely! Feeling better and dancing better. Thank you,
Anastacia. Go and get your schools, Anastacia and Brendan! Come on, up
you come! Good girl, very well done. We have
not seen this Anastacia. I haven't either. Was that a shock? It is very
feminine. I know I am a girl but I did not really realise until today!
You worked incredibly hard. It has been a very big week and we got
really involved in the story of that which really helps, especially in
Movie Week. People know at home what you are trying to be. Very well
done, the scores R.N.. -- R.N.. Five more than last week,
congratulations to both of you. If you liked that routine,
you don't have to wait A Thousand Years to vote for them,
but you do have to wait until voting opens at
the end of the show. All the details are
on your screen now. Don't forget, if you want to vote
online you'll need to sign in I love saying that stuff. It is
thrilling for me. Tests. Our next couple is Danny Mac
and his partner Oti Mabuse. Last week, Danny's Viennese
Waltz saw him joint top This week he's doing
a Paso Doble as Zorro. But the question is -
can this legendary outlaw, Saturday night was brilliant. I
really, really enjoyed doing it. You are a fantastic dancer, you really
are. Being joint top of the Leader Board is pretty incredible. We have
made it through to week three, I cannot wait, let's smash it. This
week we are doing the paso doble. The theme is really cool. I am going
to be Zorro. Danny and Oti head to the armoury of Hampton Court Palace
to learn some fencing skills. Today we are going to give you a taster of
Olympic fencing. I will teach you how to hit, how to attack and then I
will teach you how to defend. Perfect. Danny was actually really,
really good at fencing. I took to it really well. Wreath let's see. I
think Zorro would take you one. I started kind but in the end,
obviously won. I feel totally ready for the paso doble. Let's just hope
I'd then get zero. Dancing the Paso Doble
from the movie The Mask of Zorro, MUSIC: The Train /
El Sombrero Blanco Danny and Oti bringing the house
down! I think they enjoyed it! Hopefully. Very humble. Any fans
might be disappointed that now they get to see that lovely face. How
much did you enjoy that? It was amazing. We work hard all week but
the guys in make up and costume are smashing it. They have a busy week.
Craig, Danny was joint top last week, has he done enough to keep the
competition at bay? Timing, shaping, the lines were all excellent. It was
a very strong, skilful virtuoso performance. Absolutely wonderful.
Darcey? I have to say the body shaping was so impressive. For a guy
to get the curves, the Tuck, I thought with the amount of moves, I
thought it was going to be too much for you, but you were able to create
a pause with every move. You were able to fix those positions. Four
week three, this is amazing. I Len is grinning from ear to ear. Here he
comes, the swashbuckling performance, a beautiful mix of
artistry and power and coming you have pleased me, you have cheered me
up. You did one of my favourite little steps. It was great. I have
never seen him smile. Bruno? He is Danny Banderas, the sharpest blade
in the land! Carlos Acosta when he comes down, what you did, was
everything the paso doble should be, but one thing that I really see --
rarely see is how much flamenco you put in, and it was interwoven so
beautifully, it was just everything I like about paso doble. Ole! They
thought that was just the ticket. Well done.
Danny and O2. Craig has never used the word excellent in week three
before. I thought Janette's head was going to shoot off her shoulders.
How do you do that? I'm happy with that. So happy. Well done. Scores
Irene. Craig Revel Horwood. Nine. Darcey Bussell. Nine. Len Goodman.
Seven macro eight... Nine! Bruno Tonioli. Nine. CHEERING
That is the highest score of this series by a long shot. Amazing. You
know what? It makes the hard work worthwhile. Your fiance is here, so
cute. Cheering me on, and my mum. Your mummy dressed as Zorro. Why I
make up, it's perfect. If you dont want Danny to leave
with Oti and get his coati, then vote for them when voting opens
after all our couples have danced. All the details are
on your screen now. Still to come, Mission Impossible,
the Flintstones and Moulin Rouge. Right now it's Lesley Joseph
and her partner Anton Du Beke. They're dancing a quickstep
to a song from the film Easter Parade and they're taking
on the roles made famous I know it's Movie Week guys,
but you could have smartened You were marvellous Saturday night,
did you enjoy it? I loved it them it was great, glad I got all the steps
right. Your seat, GG, flirty, fun. Try to control that. Better marks
than the week before. This week we're going to get more again. One
of my favourite weeks, Movie Week, we've got a cracking movie, we are
doing Easter Parade. And it's the quickstep. What I want to do this
week is absolutely nail it. Posture wise. I know what I'm working on,
and needs to work on his flexibility. He got it wrong. I got
it different, I never get it wrong. Wanting Anton to stretch himself
Lesley takes matters into her own hands with some yoga. Well, I'm
here. Go and get changed. I am changed, I put my jacket on
specially. I can't do yoga in a suit. You can't do yoga in a suit. I
can. How did you get your legs like that? You didn't say stop, I just
twisted. What are you doing? I think it's really helping. I was trying to
get more flexibility into Anton. He is more flexible than I am. Let me
show you some steps. Forward, step...
Dancing the Quickstep from the movie Easter Parade,
That's entertainment. I went wrong. You didn't. You once different. No
wardrobe malfunctions to worry about. You're so fit, giving Anton a
run for his money. Not now, my goodness stop you cover the entire
floor. All that comedy, must have been in your element. We know she
can act. Can she dance, can she breathe? After all that I would have
thought you'd be on the floor out of it. You are fit! That was such a
treat, Lesley, it was spirited, it was fabulously cheeky, the character
came alive. You gave us this beautiful, you know, plenty of dance
content all the way through. There was only times where you're
travelling too much for you to keep up and that is where the technique
gets loose. Maybe you're pushing her a bit, too. So many beautiful
moments. I loved the quirky bits where you spring up. Such a gorgeous
surprise, I loved it. Gorgeous surprise. Len. Lots of references to
the film which I love, but you blended that with some proper
quickstep content, which I thought was fantastic. I'm having all my
joyful little steps tonight, you put a fish tail in, an old-fashioned
step. I can't go into detail. Listen, you're a golden oldie from
the silver screen and I thought you were great. Bruno. My darling,
plenty of spring in your feet. She was going. It was going swimmingly.
I loved the role-play, I loved all the quirky character you put in.
What happened on that corner? Every time you went around that, you went
wrong. I know. Apart from that, which I'm sure next time will be
brilliant, it was wonderful. Craig. Sometimes I thought the footwork
wasn't compact enough, losing efficiency. It was creating a little
bit of gapping between you. The energy, got to say, and the
characterisation, absolutely brilliant. I hope, darling, when I'm
your age, 70, I can whirl around the floor like that. They know a hit
when they see it. Thank you very much, Lesley, you're wonderful,
Lesley and Anton. I'm so sorry I went wrong. You went different. I'm
sorry, I knew it. CHEERING Brilliant. They loved it. As did
you. I saw you and Zoe on it takes to talking about the love of the
quickstep. It was magical the way you are talking about it. Why do you
adore it so much? You fly across the floor when you get the steps right,
you fly and floating his arms, it's lovely, I love it. You must have
loved that Lennon said proper quickstep. Proper quickstep. With
all the fun parts. -- you must have loved that Len said. I haven't had
as much fun as I can remember. Craig Revel Horwood. Six. Darcey Bussell.
Seven. Len Goodman. Seven. Bruno Tonioli. Seven. 27, your highest
score yet. Fantastic. If you don't want to rain
on their Easter Parade, all the details are on your screen
now so you can vote for them when voting opens at the end
of the show. There's still all of this to come
on our Movie Special. Are you having a chat? Sorry.
They've got the number, they've written it down. Still all of this
to come on the movie special. I'm trying to approach this week
with optimism and positivity but as oxer and will tell you it doesn't
come naturally to me. What frustrates me with the way I learn,
it falls out of my head like a sieve. It's a really fun dance. I'm
doing it without shoes on and I love dancing barefoot. The American
Smooth is effortless cool. And I don't do effortless and I don't do
cool. Lots to look forward to. Now Daisy's finished her
Mary Poppins' routine, she said Our next couple is Will Young
and his partner Karen Clifton. They're dancing to the song Jai Ho
from the film Slumdog Millionaire and this colourful salsa
inspired by Bollywood - I confided but look what I got for
you, test... -- I can't find it, but look what I got for you, Tess. Last
Saturday I was a mixture of nervousness and then real
excitement. I thought, this is amazing. I missed a bit of the
choreography. I was disappointed. The side-by-side section you messed
up entirely. Five. Five was definitely a shock, the only way is
up from here. This week I'm doing a salsa with a Bollywood theme for
Movie Week. Not only does he have to have all of the technical abilities
for the salsa, but he also needs to remember all the details of
Bollywood dance. Karen has organised a visitor today. Karen invited me
here to incorporate the Bollywood aspect into their dance. Any tips
you can give us? In Bollywood dance it is essential you extend your hand
gestures and hand movements, show the gracing your fingers. Screwing
the light bulbs. I've shown them a few steps, gone over a few of the
hand gestures. They've done amazingly well, I'm so happy and I'm
really rooting for Will. That was absolutely amazing! I've been really
enjoying learning salsa this week, I hope I can bring a bit of Bollywood
to Borehamwood this Saturday. Dancing the salsa from the movie
Slumdog Millionaire, APPLAUSE
CHEERING Jai Ho! A party here in Elstree.
What a colourful routine. Fabulous. Did that get you in the party mood,
Len? It certainly did. Listen, let me say straightaway, Will, I think
you are a terrific dancer. Whatever you had to do you've come out and
not only dancing great, your performance level is great. You've
come here to Borehamwood to do Hollywood and we got Bollywood.
Perfect. I only tell the truth everyone. For me, not enough salsa.
I loved the dance, it was entertaining, it was fun, I enjoyed
it, I thought your dancing was great. But it's a salsa and I would
have liked a soupcon more of the salsa. I got about six or eight bars
in the middle. There are 24 counts of eight of salsa into the routine.
CHEERING Very nice of you to say that to me,
but I must say, most of them I didn't recognise. They weren't.
Probably my fault. You are the expert. Turn up, keep up and shut up
is my other advice. It's only a joke, Will. It worked 15 years ago
for me, I'll give it a go. He's a traditionalist, our Len. All I have
to say is, hooray for Bollywood with a lovely salsa. I loved the flavour,
it was exotic, uplifting, very very colourful, very joyful. And there
was a lot of aspect of it that reminds me of contemporary thrown in
there. I thought the whole thing was wonderful, actually. Craig. There
was definitely enough salsa in there for me and I absolutely adored the
mix. Very brave of you to even attempt that. You danced it really,
really cleanly. The isolation in all the Red Bull stuff was absolutely
brilliant. Well done. -- ripple stuff.
What I noticed straightaway was how effortlessly you got Karen into
those lifts. With the preparation that, I could not even see it. It
was beautifully done. I loved the interesting mix of the two styles
together. A big hit with the audience as well. It is well and
Karen! So, Craig adored it and they thought
it was great because you took an two dances and I know you love Darcey. I
must say I love men as well and I did not want to come across as
disrespectful cash back I really love Len as well stop he is the Don
of ballroom. Thank you, the scores R.N..
If you loved Will and Karen's salsa all the details are on your screen
now, so you can vote for them when voting opens
Still to come, Judge Rinder goes to Bedrock.
Dancing next is Naga Munchetty and her partner Pasha Kovalev.
Last week, Naga was challenged by her Cha Cha.
This week she's doing a tango to a song from a Tom Cruise film
and shes hoping that getting through to next week won't be
How did you feel on Saturday? We were working on trying to feel the
dance more than do the steps. Gutted about the judges' comments. All I
want you to do is get the confidence. Nail the routine and
then get the characters. This week it is Movie Week and we are going to
be doing an amazing movie, Mission Impossible. All the Mission
Impossibles. Do is fabulous. We are doing the tango. For us to nail it
you have to think nothing but the tango. I want the music to follow
you everywhere around. Night, Pasha, see you tomorrow. Everywhere I have
gone, I have heard that theme tune to Mission Impossible. It is there
when I am walking down the street, it is when I am in the supermarket.
It is everywhere. It is following me around, I am sure. Pasha! I want you
to practice as much as you can, it is for your own good. All this extra
practice, I just hope it helps on Saturday night.
Naga Munchetty and Pasha Kovalev, your mission is to dance the Tango.
Come on over. Well done, the pair of you. I know it took longer than you
expected to get out of that harness but you did a great job of catching
up. And you look very foxy. I love the catsuit. Bruno, over to you. She
definitely looks the part. She looks like a sultry, slinky, super spy.
But sometimes you hit a couple of lines which are brilliant but then
you seem to lose focus will stop you stumbled a little bit there. Then
you go back on it and it looks great. Do you lose confidence? I
wonder why. The potential is there. It seems like you are losing focus,
do you know what I mean? Moment of brilliance and then link, what has
gone wrong that? There she goes again. Keep confident in yourself,
keep the strength going through the body all the way through believing
in yourself because you have got it. Don't doubt it. I thought the
footwork was very sloppy and careless and at times I thought a
little bit hasty. It needed to be stronger and more extreme lines
throughout. And you are not closing when you're meant to close and I
think that through you off balance at times. But I have to say, I love
the concept and I love the drama will stop Darcey? I think you really
suit a moody spy. You have this lovely pout on your lips all the way
through and the intent and drama was there from the beginning. But Bruno
is right, it is the focus. I think it is with your eyes. It is very
difficult when you flip around but if you can find something to focus
on every time you flick back, even if it is at Pasha, when you can,
that will help the balance. An incredibly difficult tango but such
an improvement, really. Len? Let me say first of all, that is your best
dance to date. That is the starting point. You have got to be as crisp
as a Pringle when you are dancing the tango. It is sharp, right on the
bottom. When you stop, you stop. A little bit was lacking and I think
that you had the flexed knees which I was looking for, lovely. You got
the hold nice and compact, lovely. I think you get nervous. What do I
know? When it is all over and you look back, I think if anything is
going to stop you, it is your nerves. You are better than you
think you are and you have just got to come out and show us. Great
advice. Take it on board. I will. Thank you, judges, off you go. No
other and Pasha. -- Naga and Pasha. Look at you, no wood in on wires. Is
Len right you don't feel confident? It is natural to feel nervous. It is
something I have battled with. It is Mission Impossible! You are learning
to dance but you are also learning to perform. The scores R.N.. -- the
scores are in. That is your highest score yet. You
must feel very proud. Very proud. If you enjoyed Naga
and Pasha's tango all the details are on your screen
now so you can vote for them when voting opens at the end
of the show. Still to come, Ore is
singing in the rain. Could be awkward, this is a
dancing competition. Our next couple is Judge Rinder
and his partner Oksana Platero. And for this dance Judge Rinder
will be taking on the role of Fred, Yes, it's time to
Meet The Flintstones. How did you feel about your
performance last week? I really enjoyed it. This is the first
routine where I relaxed into it and had fun. Next time you dance look at
your face in the mirror, it is still quite annoying. Poor Craig. When
this is finished I might take him to a happy farm. I will pull off more
faces than we ever did. This week, Judge Rinder is dancing the
charleston as Fred Flintstone. How did he master the character? I
bought a beautiful portrait of one of the most profound characters of
the 20th century. Sometimes Judge Rinder takes things just a little
too seriously. Fred, I want to do justice on the night. Justice? What
do you mean? I want to work out what is going on in that chiselled head
of yours. You have just got to let go and enjoy your self,
yabba-dabba-do! Yabba-dabba-do I have got it, hearing Fred speak to
me will definitely help my dance on Saturday night.
Dancing the Charleston from the movie The Flintstones,
Oh, my oh my! You have rocked this studio, that is the shot. Last week
Fred Astaire, this week Fred Flintstone. I missed a few steps but
never mind! Hopefully nobody noticed. Craig, did you enjoyed that
trip to bedrock? All those ghastly gawping facial expressions, darling,
actually came into their own this week. You had a bit of a tight
swivel, darling, on the left side and you missed time to the first
charleston step. And also you misjudged the lift that sweeps
around. You never actually stepped over the Lady's legs, sadly, but I
love the energy. I loved the routine and I loved the handspring. Darcey?
I love the crazy caveman as well. You are very cute as a caveman!
Darcey, stop, stop! No, utterly charming. There were moments when
you could do more swivel. Overall, you never fail to give us a fabulous
performance. It is brilliant. Len. I'm going to give that a U
certificate, you entertained, you made us all smile, but you made a
few mistakes along the way. But I like your attitude. Because all of
us are dancers and there's not one of us that hasn't gone out and made
mistakes, and you have to say, well, it's one of those things. There were
quite a few moments in there that were little bit anxious. I wouldn't
worry about them, I think he's cute. He is cute, I love it. I'm so sorry,
Oksana, the Strictly cares. Stand back. It was like watching Judge
Neanderthals gone mental. He hammered that charleston so much
that the timing went extinct. You have to keep timing my darling,
performance is always good. If you lose timing you can cover it up and
pick it up again. In the first half it was really out, you were making
it up as you went along. But always funny and always great to watch.
Always great to watch. That face was made for charleston. Judge Rinder
and Oksana. We absolutely loved it, we didn't
see one mistake. Darcey said utterly charming. She made you go a bit
giddy. She did, I don't know what the caveman responds to it is.
Darcey, Ugg. That'll do! The scores R.N..
Ladies and gentlemen, the judges' scores R.N.. Craig Revel Horwood.
Seven. Darcey Bussell. A cute eight. Len Goodman. Sorry, it's six. Bruno
Tonioli. Six. Same score as last week. Strange scoring. Seven and
eight, lovely. Let's focus on those. If you don't want this caveman
to become extinct all the details are on your screen now so you can
vote for them when voting opens They are pointing so you
absolutely have the details. Still to come, Laura is wondering
if she can do a dance Next up is Ore Oduba
and his partner Joanne Clifton. This week Ore is dancing
to Singing In The Rain and taking on the role
made famous by Gene Kelly. Gene Kelly was a professional
dancer with a lifetime's Ore is a sports presenter who's done
a few weeks on Strictly. How cool was that Europe and the
whole show? I absolutely loved it, it was a real pleasure. It was nerve
wracking but it was amazing at the same time. Forget the fire
extinguisher, you need to get out the water cannon to cool down after
this. So saucy, you are. I'm very proud of you. Thanks, coach. The
song we are dancing to for Movie Week is Singing in the Rain by the
legendary Gene Kelly. How I'm going to be effortlessly cool I have no
idea. I really need you to get dancing in the rain. I need to
channel my inner Gene Kelly, this is impossible, we can't do it. Not to
fear. Joe has an idea. Why are we here dressed like this?
We are dancing to singing in the rain, I want you to practice dancing
in the rain. But there is no rain. OK, that's cool. Something about
dancing in water gives you this wanton abandon. It's been such fun
bringing Ore to the Olympic Park he's such a laugh, he's up for
anything. All we can do now is hope our Americans move goes down a storm
on Saturday night. Twitch American Smooth.
Dancing the American Smooth from the movie Singin' In The Rain,
MUSIC: Singin' In The Rain wonderful. Standing ovation, Ore. Is
that a little tear? No, it's just the rain. In your eyes. All of that
umbrella choreography, the one-handed catch, brilliant. How was
it a step into Gene Kelly's shoes? Pressure, lots of pressure.
Incredible job, let's see if you gave the judges a glorious feeling.
You certainly captured the sophistication of that dance. I
yam... You took my breath away I have to say. Beautifully
choreographed. I loved. Ore, your timing is brilliant. And the
physical attributes you have are identical to Gene Kelly. It's
perfect. Really. What I think is incredibly difficult, all of that
physicality you put into it and then you are able to slow it down and
control it at the very end, which is not easy. CHEERING
That dance is your best danced so far.
OK. Sorry. That's all right. Len. I have to agree regarding the routine,
Jo, I thought the routine was fantastic. Ore you interpret it
fantastically. When I heard it was Singing in the Rain, it's so
difficult to give a dance like that, which everyone knows, to give it,
you know, to justify it and give it a twist. But you did. And lots of
Foxtrot references going through it. I'm astounded how good that was.
I'm going to cry! Bruno. I think Gene Kelly himself would be proud
because you took... What happened here, you took all the right
references but then you gave your own personality, you shone through
it. You weren't giving a parody of Gene Kelly, it was you all the time,
dancing as well. Bringing your own character. Down to the twinkle in
your eye, down to every little nuance. Credit to you for such
splendid choreography. Critical acclaim from the judges. It's OK,
I'm fine. Craig. I thought you were leaning over Jo... Shut up! You
could have been on your toes more, especially on the stairs. I thought
the routine was absolutely outstanding. A proper, proper
showman. Thank you, judges, you dry off upstairs. And your little eyes,
Well done. Well done to you. I mean, Ore, I wanted to zoom down and
cuddle you. It's a lot to take you're a sports presenter, you've
never danced, and they haven't gushed like for years. Stop bashing.
I didn't mean it like that. ! Gushing. It's an emotional week
because I know how much Jo loves this song and style love dance. I
wanted to make you proud. I think I did. You really did. Ladies and
gentlemen, the judges have their score. Craig Revel Horwood. Eight.
Darcey Bussell. A classy nine. Len Goodman. Nine! Bruno Tonioli. Nine.
That is your highest score by miles. You're crying, Jo's Ryan. I might
also... Are you over the moon? It's a big deal. -- Jo's crying. I love
Tameka, Tameka's also crying. No, no, no. This is week three, guys,
just imagine. If Singing In The Rain had
you cheering on your sofa, and you want to see Ore and Joanne
again next week, then vote for them. All the details are on your screen
now and voting opens at the end It's the transformation of dances,
there's nothing similar apart from keeping in time to the music. It's
fiery, it's feisty. And it's very, very different from last week. We've
been working a lot on technique. We need to be on point with these
things. Sorry! I love doing routine that make you huff and puff, I
haven't felt like that since the Olympics. The dream hasn't stopped
for me yet. More costumes, more dances. With this dance I'm totally
outside my comfort zone, this is way beyond what I was expecting.
Especially Claudia's Bugsy Malone routine.
They're using custard pies made with real cream.
I'm hoping they'll have some spare we might be able to reach.
Dancing next is Laura Whitmore and her partner Giovanni Pernice.
Last week's waltz saw them riding high on the Leaderboard.
And Laura was so happy she's been swinging from the rooftops all week.
She hasn't come back down yet. Saturday night you were absolutely
fantastic. Such sophistication, demure. And yet it had such a
sizzling passionate intensity. Excellent. Absolutely gorgeous, that
routine. Gorgeous! Every week I'm trying to learn a bit
more, to improve on the first week was really nice. This week we are
dancing a salsa. The song is from the movie Moulin Rouge. Salsa is
very different to last week. Very fast. Lots of lists. And it hurts. I
miss the wall. Hours salsa is not just about the I want a spectacular,
spectacular beginning. What about flying? In order to fulfil
Giovanni's vision, they had to the studio to practice their big
entrance. It's high. Can we go higher? Before I even get the dance,
I have to get down to their, unhook myself, get down the stairs. I'm not
going to lie to you, I'm not feeling the most confident at the moment.
I'm going to try and make it look as elegant as possible but in my head
all I'm going to think is, please don't fall over.
Dancing the salsa from the movie Moulin Rouge,
Oh, my goodness! You reached new heights there, my love! That lift at
the end, you must have been terrified. The first one, the last
one, all of them. Did they turn the Moulin Rouge red-hot? It was a
little bit on the raunchy side for me! What are you doing? It is not
your turn yet, Bruno? Bruno does like the raunchy. And I am not a big
punter for it. Give over. But what I like, first, let me say URA to refit
dancer. -- you are a terrific dancer. You have come out and you're
going for it and in going for that dance, I know the salsa is a fast
dance but it has to have elements of finesse about it and they were
lacking occasionally. You are going into the lists and the little
moments, but as I said, you are a great dancer, you will be here for
ages. Go on, Bruno, your turn! I am telling you, the showgirl has
va-va-voom coming out of every pore! You bring the dead back to life!
This was the hottest, sexiest, everything that I like. You look
stunning, your energy was fantastic. I was gobsmacked! Craig? I thought
you through little bit too much of everything into it and lost a little
bit of control. It did look entirely natural on you at times. You need to
knock out when you do the shoulder lift. I saw your body go down and
then you remembered to lock out. But I loved the series of spins. Very
impressive. Darcey? You meant business, you certainly did. You
came on that floor and you sold it. You were popping isolations in every
step. It was really impressive. But otherwise, there were moments of
dysfunction. More the preparations to your lifts. They got to look
rather ungainly. If you I am both out you will have a finished
performance but not bad for week three. Not bad for week three. Well
done, my love. Head up to Claudia. Laura, Giovanni! My favourite thing
all through it was you saying I miss the waltz! Len said you were a
terrific dancer. That means a lot. And it also means a lot to your mum.
There she is! The scores are in. Nine! Give it to me! Well done,
Giovanni. If you enjoyed seeing an Irish girl
do a Cuban dance with an Italian man in a French nightclub,
all the details are on your screen now so you can vote for them
when voting opens at the end Still to come, Claudia and AJ
are playing 13-year-old kids. Dancing next on our Movie Week
special is Greg Rutherford Last week Greg was criticized
by the judges for doing his tango Tonight he's doing an American
Smooth and he's determined to have it tucked in,
no ifs and definitely no butts. How did you feel about last week's
show? The overriding comment was not about the dancing as such but about
my bum. Your bum sticks out. You have got a big bump. In your
ballroom, tuck it under. This week we will have to keep it under
control. The dance this week is the American Smooth. I love the American
Smooth. I love the elegance, the drive, the lifts. This week we have
the best theme. It is Robin Herd, everything I do, I do it for you --
robin hood. To get you into the mood, I have brought you this!
Brilliant. How do I look? Perfect. Greg is such a natural archer. He is
unbelievable. This hat is staying on. It is an incredible hat. I feel
like I am Robin Hood. Tens across the board, I will settle for that. I
hope I can hit some high scores on Saturday night.
Dancing the American Smooth from the movie Robin Hood:
Prince of Thieves, Greg Rutherford and Natalie Lowe.
Beautiful! Beautiful American Smooth. They are on their feet in
the studio. Everyone is all of a quiver. OK, Natalie? Is that a
little tear. First dancing, now acting, he is a natural. Bruno, did
that do it for you? For get about Prince Of Thieves, you are Prince
Charming! The connection between you two tonight was absolutely wonderful
to watch. I do it know how you taught him being a girl to lead so
well. At no time I felt that you were actually pushing him, he was
taking control of the situation, guiding you beautifully. It was just
wonderful and your strength, I thought that last lift! But I have
to say, I was so pleasantly surprised at how well you do, Greg.
Beautiful. Craig? It lacked form at a little bit of swing and sway and
that is the only thing that would have given it a little bit more
style. But I have to say, you're storytelling throughout that, both
of you, was gorgeous. An entrancing partnership. I love this
partnership, I really do. Darcey? It was a beautiful smooth quality,
every time you came in to hold, it was stunning. Even with all that
leather run, I couldn't see your bottom or anything else. There is a
lovely story being told all the way through. Even with those impressive
lifts which were incredibly impressive, they just didn't have
the same quality as the rest of the dance for me. I would have loved
them not to have had that power and I think the quality would have been
smoother all the way through. Both of you are very strong dancers, very
athletic. You were like a rocket nearly. If you could just calm that
down then you will have a great finished performance. But you up
your game every week, you really do. Len? There was lovely chemistry, I
love the air of romance. There was the right amount of stuff in hold
and out of hold. I don't know if it is that doublet or liberty bodice
but no sign of a bum! It was a ball side, well done! Ball fly! He has
hit the target with the judges and the audience -- bulls eye.
Your fellow dancers are all so proud of you. Did you enjoy that more than
the tango? So much. This week has been incredible. Natalie has been so
incredibly patient with me. Tuesday was not going well at all but we
turned it around. Very well done. The scores are in. Ladies and
gentlemen, the judges have their scores.
You look so happy, Natalie, well done!

Next up is Claudia Fragapane and her partner AJ Pritchard.
They're doing a charleston to a song from Bugsy Malone, the movie famous
I think I'll make myself scarce, this could get messy.
Last Saturday was the waltz. It was amazing. I really enjoyed myself out
there. Light of my life? You lit up this ballroom! I was a bit
disappointed when I got a six from Craig. ... He will of the
charleston. He can give us a ten. We have had some good charlestons on
Strictly so far but ours will be the best. We have been working really
hard in training but now it is time to have some fun. We are recreating
a custard pie fight. Those kids in the film are so cheeky and you have
to be super cheeky just like them! Hopefully Claudia has had fun
throwing these pies in my face and hopefully the audience will enjoy it
as much as this. Let's hope AJ does not take my pranks too seriously.
AJ! Dancing the charleston from the movie Bugsy Malone, Claudia
Fragapane and AJ Pritchard. CHEERING
For AJ! Did you get a little bit, Darcey? Come here, my darling, can
you see? For AJ, all that training, look how she repays you. Oh my
goodness, you brought the house down here tonight. It was the nominal. I
apologise. Are you all right, judges? You have tissues. He told me
to hit it hard. It's his fault. There are more custard pies, Craig,
it's your turn. Technically I have to say that was absolutely
brilliant. CHEERING That is worth a custard pie in the
face. Darcey. Even the speed didn't affect you, it was made for you.
Absolutely outstanding. Len. What a marvellous combination, there was
clever choreography, slick tricks, and slapstick. I think even the cake
was made by Paul Hollywood. As we are at the movies. Well done. No
soggy bottoms around here. You went off like a rocket. You're an amazing
dancer. What I really love it, I'm seeing you act. You act beautifully.
You really are a double threat, my darling. Love it. A blockbuster,
outstanding. Thank you, judges. Get yourselves cleaned off, AJ. Well
done. You look divine. She went for it.
You were so cute, you said committee told me to do it fast. Let's take
some of that. You must have been so happy with those comments as well.
So happy, can't believe them, I've got such an incredible teacher. He's
quite a hard task master, isn't it? Just wipe it on me. I'm washing it.
It was fantastic. The scores are in. Craig Revel Horwood. Nine. Darcey
Bussell. Nine. Len Goodman. Nine. And Bruno Tonioli. Nine. CHEERING
APPLAUSE Well done for me you haven't got
higher than a six from Craig, must feel fantastic. Joint top leader on
the Leader Board. If you If you loved Claudia and AJ,
all the details are on your screen now so you can vote for them
when voting opens at look at you! Still to come, I'm only
going to say this once, Ed Balls. Samba. Oh, yeah.
Our next couple is Tameka Empson and her partner Gorka Marquez.
As it's Movie Week all our celebrities are getting
And that should be no problem for Tameka.
She's already won an award for her acting this week.
Last week with the charleston was great, the moment it started I just
felt I was in a silent movie. I absolutely love your character, you
just set the scene perfectly. I hated waiting for the result.
Tameka and Gorka. That was such a relief. The dream still goes on.
This week for Movie Week I will be performing the tango. It's fast,
it's serious, and I'm going to have to really work at this one. Having
been nominated for an inside soap award for her work on EastEnders,
Tameka and Gorka hit the red carpet. This week is Movie Week and I've
brought Gorka here to the Oscars of the soap world. It's time to present
the award for funniest female. Quick stabbing her way to victory it is
Tameka Empson from EastEnders. Thank you very much for this award, it
means a lot. And of course, keep dancing! When I'm with Tameka it's
amazing on the red carpet everyone was like, Tameka, Tameka. Crazy. I'm
glad I won this award. Now I'm hoping this will motivate me
Saturday night. LAUGHTER Thank you.
Dancing the Tango from the movie Beverly Hills Cop,
Tameka and Gorka. The heat was definitely an! You look good in
uniform. Thank you. What you think Darcey? I have to say, you take the
job seriously. The intent, the attack, the drama, the focus your
eyes was great. I think you even felt scared, didn't you?
Occasionally. There were only moment I would have loved it to be crisper,
more clipped, each transition. Each change in the move. If you could get
that crisper change and turn. Fix that top line. But really, as a
whole, it was a great, great dams. You have plenty of attack and intent
and focus. The thing that distracted for me was your past year. You've
got to try and just left, lift up that rib cage. Lifted to shift it.
Then... That's what you've got to do. Little bit over the top. But
well done. No doubt who's in charge there. I've got a job to do, I'm
going to do it. Nobody's going to stop me and I'm going to do it well.
And that's what you did. I loved your commitment. You're like a
laser-guided missile, nothing is going to stop you. I thought you
were leading at times actually, she was taking over. I won't mind you
looking after my street, nobody's going to mess around with that girl.
I want you on my side. Just make sure the past year, you know,
correct that, but I thought your performance was brilliant. Craig.
Your hand position was changeable, largely due to your left elbow
collapsing on occasion. You need to create more of a V shape but you
covered the floor aggressively. That's a good point! Actually. I
thought that part was wonderful, darling.
Hello, hello, hello, hello. It was your favourite, was it? Do it, do
it. You had so much fun with the charleston ULI, I don't want to be
all serious. I know, it was a very hard week this week. You won an
award. I won an award which is good. Thank you, thank you to those who
voted. The scores are in. We'll be judges please reveal that
score? Craig Revel Horwood. Six. Darcey Bussell. Seven. Len Goodman.
Seven. Bruno Tonioli. Eight. If you think it would be criminal
for Tameka to leave the competition all the details are on your screen
now so you can vote for them when voting opens
at the end of the show. Still to come, Louise
is doing "fish dance". Next, hoping for rave reviews, Ed
Balls and his partner Katya Jones. We saw a different
side to Ed last week But after such a flamboyant
routine will he be toning Not really ? he's painted his face
green, he's wearing a yellow suit Can't wait! Things went brilliantly
Saturday. We're a team and we were brilliant. You totally owned floor.
# Because I want to be a cowboy #. That a site I don't think I ever
want to see again. People are not stupid. You got a standing ovation.
The public saved us this time but next week let's also try not be
bottom of the Leader Board. That would great, wouldn't it? What are
we doing next week? It's from the movie the mask. It is the samba. I
don't really know what they samba even is. It's all about a man who
finds a mask and when he put it on he becomes this wild character.
Can't pull it off. When you wear this, you are not Ed Balls any more,
you are the mass. -- you are The Mask. The Mask took over. Somebody
stop me! I must say I was a bit traumatised. If Ed can put this much
personality into his dance we'll be fine on Saturday night. Strictly!
Dancing the samba from the movie The Mask,
Oh, hello? Wreath you were smoking at that you sure work, Ed. Oh, my
goodness me. Was that smoking, Len? What is great is the anticipation
when you are coming out, what is going to happen. I have got to
congratulate you. Because you haven't taken the easy option. You
could easily, which we have seen before with the less talented
dancers, the pro is doing everything but you have given it full routines
with lots going on. And it is great to see you out there having a go.
Ed, you are not the best dancer but you are definitely the most fun.
CHEERING Bruno? I see the Green Party is
having a resurgence, and based on that, I will join in. I mean, I am
telling you, I was expecting some kind of samba dance. You could not
have given more impact to that performance. All the Jim Carey
phrases. That was complete lunacy and to give -- totally wonderful. I
know it is crazy, but I like it! And we are all crazy. I cannot quite
believe what I have just been witnessed to and I am sure the
nation is with me on that, darling. I think somebody must have put
something in my water. It was driven but the void, sadly, of any samba. I
like that you relent wished any sort of technique associated with this
dance. I thought my to Fuego was not that bad. And you started with a
vault. What do you out of life? There you go! He is taking this very
seriously, Ed. Darcey? 100% crazy, fabulous, I couldn't take my eyes
off you. But you know what is great, you have definitely embodied the
character and I want you to hold on to that for the rest of the
competition. Fingers crossed. We love it. He has done it again, off
you go to Claudia. Ed and Katya, we were screaming for
you up here! Absolutely extraordinary. The best thing was
your wife's face. She was going, I love him, this is happening. How are
your kids taking this situation? It is definitely embarrassing but I
have been saying all week, somebody stop me! I cannot speak! The scores
are in. Ladies and gentlemen, the judges have their scores.
Smoking! Seven. Bruno Tonioli. Piping! Seven. You see, it is
fantastic. I can't stop staring at you. That politician in a suit,
where has he gone. He has gone to party!
If you want to keep Ed and Katya in the competition,
all the details are on your screen now so you can vote
for them when voting opens at the end of the show.
Last week's Viennese Waltz saw her score 32
What a feeling it must have been to be joint top of the Leaderboard.
And coincidentally What A Feeling is what she's dancing to tonight.
I was just so thrilled to bits about Saturday. Beautiful, absolutely
beautiful. I am so proud of you. You danced really beautifully. I spotted
the first fleckerl of the year. You are joint top of the Leader Board,
very well done. This week, cha-cha-cha, Movie Week, we are
doing Flashdance. I used to do the routine in my living room when I was
12 years of age. It was my dream. Some girls like princesses. I liked
a girl who was a welder who could really do some moves. We should put
you in that situation. In my living room? Guess, I have got some
legwarmers to help! Very proud of mum and Kevin's dancing. We think
she will do well. That was fun. If I can just forget about the millions
of people watching at home then I will be fine on Saturday night!
Dancing the Cha Cha Cha from the movie Flashdance,
What a show stopper. Come here. It from the movie Flashdance,
What a show stopper. Come here. It is safe to say you past that
audition. It was wonderful. Bruno? It was so good. It took me back to
the 80s. I knew the steps. All the cha-cha-cha you put in was actually
very good. You have such a wonderful foot placement. I love the way you
caress the floor when you change position. So nice, so precise and it
is good for us to see what you have got, my darling! You passed the
audition and you were great! Great rhythm, great timing, you just need
to watch your hip action which can be extended more. I loved the
routine. Well done. Darcey? I think every time you are given a style you
make the most of it and I love this because this really suits you. It is
a great look, hang onto this one. You looked so much more confident
and in control of it. I really enjoyed it. A beautiful smile was in
place throughout. Was that a fitting finale for our movie night, Len?
People there with the cha-cha-cha you have to be sharp, crisp and
clean, but you have also got to show the rhythm. To get all those
elements together is a tricky job but I must say you did. But may I
also say, I have had a fantastic night with all of our couples. It
has been fabulous! Thank you, Len. Thank you so much, judges. Go and
get the party started. Thank you, Louise and Kevin!
Well done to both of you. Was I right that you said earlier, I have
forgotten? I forget all the time and panic and then I get out there and
enjoy it. The scores are in. The judges have their scores.
Are you happy. When you got that seven, you said, I'm sorry? You were
