Tess Daly...

0:04:030:04:06

And Claudia Winkleman.

0:04:060:04:11

Hello and welcome to our

Halloween Results Show and a massive

0:04:180:04:20

thank you and to our professional

dancers for that

0:04:200:04:22

hair-rasing routine.

0:04:220:04:24

What a nightmare.

0:04:240:04:25

I keep telling Brendan not to snack

0:04:250:04:26

on cheese before bed.

0:04:260:04:27

Does he listen?

0:04:270:04:29

LAUGHTER

On Saturday night, our judges were

0:04:290:04:36

judging the spirited Paso Doble and

the charleston.

0:04:360:04:42

Tonight of course we will find out

which of our couples are safely

0:04:420:04:45

through to next week.

0:04:450:04:46

And one couple's Strictly journey

will come to a close.

0:04:460:04:48

Your votes have been combined

with the Judges' scores,

0:04:480:04:50

and the two couples with the lowest

overall points will face each other

0:04:500:04:53

in the dreaded Dance-Off.

0:04:530:04:55

The decision of who stays

and who goes is down

0:04:550:04:57

to these creatures.

0:04:570:04:58

Please welcome the Judges!

0:04:580:05:00

Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli.

0:05:020:05:05

0:05:310:05:33

Plus, our Judges will be dissecting

a selection of Saturday night's

0:05:330:05:36

dances frame by frame.

0:05:360:05:40

Shortly, we'll reveal the first

couple in the Dance-off.

0:05:400:05:44

But first, let's take a look back

at our Halloween extravaganza.

0:05:440:05:47

This is the week we've been dreaming

to be part of.

It's Halloween and I

0:05:550:06:00

can't contain my excitement!

Happy

Halloween!

Strictly goes in on

0:06:000:06:09

Halloween, it's not a joke! Cobwebs

everywhere, masks.

The costumes and

0:06:090:06:16

make-up are amazing but Halloween

week is like amazing with bells on,

0:06:160:06:21

there are people with spiders coming

out of their mouths!

I ate a spider

0:06:210:06:25

because I was quite hungry.

Big

horns, red hair, a standard Saturday

0:06:250:06:31

outfit!

Just going to be a pirate,

very dirty.

You see people that you

0:06:310:06:38

think you don't recognise and then

you realise it's Aston! De Villiers!

0:06:380:06:44

-- there he is. I'm sitting here

waiting for my wig.

Debbie has gone

0:06:440:06:54

brunette and I have gone blonde.

Giovanni is going to be up to some

0:06:540:06:59

sort of trick.

Oh!

0:06:590:07:05

We live in a five for the

spooktacular.

I am ready for

0:07:060:07:17

Halloween.

It may be a horror story

but I love the Halloween special.

0:07:170:07:24

You came out with all guns blazing.

I loved everything about what you

0:07:280:07:33

did.

Perfect Halloween treat. You

were living every moment.

Oh, I can

0:07:330:07:45

have your tango for breakfast, lunch

and dinner.

Terrifyingly good.

It

0:07:450:07:50

was amazing.

Well done.

Thank you.

Give me some more Tango!

There were

0:07:500:07:58

moments when you looked

uncomfortable.

I really love the

0:07:580:08:03

energy and drive you provided.

I was

pleased with you today.

Don't mess

0:08:030:08:09

with Gemma because she's the jazz

player!

Done!

It was an American

0:08:090:08:21

horror story!

I thought it was the

dullest of the living dead and rigor

0:08:210:08:28

mortis actually set in.

Enjoying the

character, pretty scary.

We had a

0:08:280:08:33

blast.

I loved it.

It lacked

everything that foxtrot is about.

0:08:330:08:39

The Halloween Game of Thrones dragon

breathing, not really what we were

0:08:390:08:44

going for!

Then you have succeeded.

You definitely worked hard, I could

0:08:440:08:52

see the concentration, the amount of

dance.

I don't think that this is

0:08:520:08:59

your strength.

Made it to the end.

Happy we did it, it was a hard life.

0:08:590:09:04

You made some mistakes but didn't

show it.

You're improving and I

0:09:040:09:09

think it's going in the right

direction.

She just did so well and

0:09:090:09:13

I think it was her best dance.

It

was her best, it was really good.

0:09:130:09:23

You looked extremely comfortable and

confident doing this dance.

Your

0:09:230:09:27

strength of character is definitely

coming through.

It wasn't enough

0:09:270:09:31

basic steps. The basic steps you did

do, you didn't do very well.

I think

0:09:310:09:38

the overall performance was very

nice.

As Davood's on Mum, I felt so

0:09:380:09:46

nervous for him. I was willing for

him to do well. -- on-screen mum.

0:09:460:09:53

That was the dead being brought back

to life!

Amazing.

You owned this

0:09:530:09:58

dance.

Wow!

Clean, precise,

absolutely incredible.

That was

0:09:580:10:08

brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

I'm

going to give you my Queen of Latin

0:10:080:10:15

crown because you deserve it.

0:10:150:10:18

It was a spellbinding night of

dance.

0:10:370:10:41

11 stars are quaking

in their dancing shoes,

0:10:410:10:43

waiting to find out if they'll make

it through to next week.

0:10:430:10:46

Here's a reminder of how Saturday

night left our couples

0:10:460:10:47

Debbie and Giovanni with a

near-perfect score.

0:10:550:10:58

But how have your votes

changed all of that?

0:10:590:11:02

It's time to find out

who will be the first to face

0:11:020:11:11

the Dance-off.

0:11:110:11:12

The results are in.

0:11:120:11:13

In no particular order.

0:11:130:11:17

The first couple safely through to

next week is...

0:11:170:11:23

Davood and Nadiya.

0:11:280:11:31

APPLAUSE

0:11:350:11:37

Safe in the competition for another

week...

0:11:410:11:47

Debbie and Giovanni.

0:11:530:11:56

APPLAUSE

Thank you, thank you.

0:11:560:12:01

Dancing again will be...

0:12:050:12:12

Joe and Katya.

0:12:160:12:20

APPLAUSE

0:12:210:12:25

also back are...

0:12:280:12:31

Alexandra and Gorka.

0:12:390:12:44

And now, the first couple who must

compete for survival in the

0:12:510:12:56

Dance-Off is...

0:12:560:12:59

Mollie and AJ. The rest of you have

direct a bit longer to find out if

0:13:060:13:13

you are safe. Mollie and AJ, please

come over and join me.

0:13:130:13:19

Sorry. A lot of shock in the

audience, how are you feeling?

We're

0:13:250:13:31

gutted, we've got to give it our

best shot and give everything.

Yeah.

0:13:310:13:36

Shall we get some advice from the

judges? Please.

I'm surprised you

0:13:360:13:42

are in the bottom two, you did

extremely well on Saturday evening,

0:13:420:13:46

you've just got to get your weight

more forward, go for it and know

0:13:460:13:50

that you're going to do well.

Thank

you.

Good advice. They all behind

0:13:500:13:57

you.

Thank you.

0:13:570:14:00

I have four very happy and relieved

couples here. Debbie, those lifts

0:14:030:14:10

made social media go absolutely

bonkers. Something like 20,000

0:14:100:14:14

tweets in the first minute. Did you

think they would get that kind of

0:14:140:14:20

response, in rehearsal?

I had no

idea it would have that reaction.

0:14:200:14:23

Very well done. Giovanni, it is

Debbie's birthday on Tuesday, have

0:14:230:14:29

you got something extraordinary for

her?

I do but it will be a surprise.

0:14:290:14:33

She's a special person, I will try

to make the birthday special.

Awww!

0:14:330:14:43

Alexander, next week you are dancing

the dance that has been the most

0:14:430:14:47

unpopular this series, the cha-cha.

Jonnie didn't like it and even Aston

0:14:470:14:52

said it was tricky. How are you

going to do it?

All I know is that I

0:14:520:14:59

depend on Gorka so much to get me

through everything. It's all in my

0:14:590:15:03

pro's hands and I can only hope I do

well with it. It's tricky, we all

0:15:030:15:09

know everything we do is tricky and

you can only try your best.

Very

0:15:090:15:12

sweet, thank you. Davood, your first

lifts next week with the American

0:15:120:15:19

Smooth, you looked quite strong,

like you could actually hurt

0:15:190:15:23

someone!

0:15:230:15:29

And the will be lovely to be a to-do

lists that are not illegal.

And,

0:15:290:15:37

yes, you will get dropped on your

head a couple of times.

He is

0:15:370:15:41

joking. You did a beautiful dancer,

serious storytelling. Are you

0:15:410:15:49

excited about as seeing a different

side of you?

Yes, I have got a lot

0:15:490:15:54

to be happy for and I will channel

that.

Well done to all of you.

0:15:540:15:59

Well done to all of you.

0:15:590:16:01

Now, performing "Scared

of the Dark", it's

0:16:010:16:03

CHEERING

0:19:160:19:26

APPLAUSE CHEERING

0:19:260:19:27

Thank you to Steps.

0:19:270:19:29

It's time now for a dance debrief

please welcome the judges.

0:19:290:19:35

Thank you so much for coming up

here.

0:19:430:19:45

Thank you so much

for coming up here.

0:19:450:19:47

Judges, it's time for you to expand

on some of the frights

0:19:470:19:50

and delights that you witnessed

on Saturday night.

0:19:500:19:52

Shirley, let's start with you.

0:19:520:19:53

You want to talk about Alexandra and

Gorka and her core.

She was slightly

0:19:530:19:59

off-balance, but because she had an

amazing central line, she was able

0:19:590:20:03

to save it and come out quite

gracefully. Would you stand up for a

0:20:030:20:09

moment because you slouch a little

bit.

That is a brave thing to say.

0:20:090:20:17

The central part of the body is here

and it is like a fuse box and if one

0:20:170:20:23

part goes out, you can slouch. You

have to pull in your fuse box, flat

0:20:230:20:29

in your chest and feel like you are

being pulled up by your ears and now

0:20:290:20:34

you should be able to sit down nice

and straight. There we go.

Thank you

0:20:340:20:40

so much. You are saying that is one

of the most important things in

0:20:400:20:45

dance.

It is the most important

because without your central

0:20:450:20:52

connecting, everything else goes

limp. Even when you stand up, you

0:20:520:20:56

should stand up gracefully.

Like

that?

No, not like that. I have

0:20:560:21:04

noticed you do that.

Good luck with

the rest of the series! Darcey, you

0:21:040:21:11

want to talk about Debbie and

Giovanni. They were getting the same

0:21:110:21:18

sort of scores and then this

happened.

She did not hold back

0:21:180:21:23

atoll, but it was clean and precise.

Her character was wild and that is

0:21:230:21:29

exactly what you need in the

Charleston and it was daring. It was

0:21:290:21:34

just extraordinary. It was so fast

as well, but right on the money.

You

0:21:340:21:39

are saying at this point you

appreciate risk-taking?

Yes, do not

0:21:390:21:45

be safe, no, never.

Craig, by the

way officially the best jacket I

0:21:450:21:53

have ever seen.

A pleasure, darling.

You love it when they tell a story

0:21:530:22:01

and you were blown away by Joel and

catchier.

I loved it, it was almost

0:22:010:22:07

like a contemporary beginning and

what I loved is he put all of the

0:22:070:22:11

story into that first 15 seconds of

entry. Sometimes people mess around

0:22:110:22:17

with tables and things like that and

this was a beautiful story and it

0:22:170:22:21

set the dance up and brought it to

life. You can see him here

0:22:210:22:27

dramatically putting himself into it

and there was a twist and roll which

0:22:270:22:31

was fantastic, but he had to do that

himself. It looked like someone else

0:22:310:22:37

was directing it, but he had to put

the impetus into it, I loved it.

0:22:370:22:41

Thank you so much, Craig. Bruno, let

me talk to you please about Aston

0:22:410:22:48

and his pimento moves. I love it.

You do not often see it. No, you do

0:22:480:22:56

not, but it is part of the required

language. He reminded me of a great

0:22:560:23:02

dancer called Quai Keim Cortes and

he rejuvenated flamenco. That was a

0:23:020:23:11

fantastic job and the shape was

amazing. The arch in his back, it

0:23:110:23:17

was pure artistry.

Judges, thank you

so much. Let's hear it for the

0:23:170:23:22

judges.

0:23:220:23:23

Let's hear it for the judges.

0:23:230:23:25

So far, four couples are safely

through to next week.

0:23:250:23:27

But who will be joining them?

0:23:270:23:28

Tess.

0:23:280:23:35

All of our couples would love to

remain in the competition, but one

0:23:350:23:39

of them will join Mollie and AJ in

the dance off. It's time to find out

0:23:390:23:45

who. In no particular order, going

through to next week are...

0:23:450:23:58

Aston and Janette.

Thank you.

Yes!

Surviving until next Saturday are...

0:24:050:24:24

Susan and Kevin.

Hurray! Thank you

very much.

Returning to the ballroom

0:24:250:24:39

next week are...

0:24:390:24:50

Gemma and Aljaz.

Yes! Thank you.

Thank you.

Also save an...

0:24:500:25:05

Ruth and Anton.

Yes!

0:25:110:25:19

So that means Simon and Karen and

Jonnie and Oti, one of you is safe

0:25:240:25:30

and one of you is in the dance off.

The couple in the bottom two tonight

0:25:300:25:35

who will compete in the dance off

is... Simon and Karen. So, Jonnie

0:25:350:25:49

and Oti, congratulations, you are

through to next Saturday. Simon and

0:25:490:25:54

Karen, I am sorry, come and join me,

please. Dear me. Here we go again.

0:25:540:26:05

Third time in the dance off. What is

going through your head?

I think it

0:26:050:26:11

is called the Simon Rimmer dance off

now. The third time. We probably

0:26:110:26:17

deserved to be here, but we will

give it a really good go and give it

0:26:170:26:21

our best shot.

Good luck. Craig, you

were quite critical, fair to say, on

0:26:210:26:27

Saturday night. Can you give him

something positive to work on?

Yes,

0:26:270:26:33

I can. Concentrate on your posture,

that is something you can do in the

0:26:330:26:39

dance off, and do not display your

hands because that is the thing that

0:26:390:26:43

annoys me the most, darling. Even if

you do not do anything else.

I shall

0:26:430:26:48

glue them together right now.

You

have got to pull out all the stops,

0:26:480:26:53

so get out there and do it, darling.

Thank you.

Get out there and do it.

0:26:530:27:02

We wish you all the luck in the

world. We will see you later.

0:27:020:27:06

Claudia, it is over to you. Five

more couples are safely through.

0:27:060:27:18

Your first pen, how does that feel?

Amazing, but that is not a nice

0:27:180:27:23

place to be.

On the upside is it

true that you give celebrities hand

0:27:230:27:29

massages before the show?

Yes, in

the make up, I am there on hand.

0:27:290:27:38

Gemma, we are addicted to your

reactions to getting through because

0:27:380:27:42

everyone is happy, but you have

taken over. You love it.

I

0:27:420:27:49

absolutely loved it. I am genuinely

so happy to be here every week, so

0:27:490:27:54

when you are waiting to find that if

it is your last week, it is

0:27:540:27:58

horrible. It is such a relief. I

can't contain it. It is a lovely

0:27:580:28:04

feeling, said thank you for voting.

Thank you so much. Ruth, you are

0:28:040:28:10

through. Shall we have a celebratory

nose wiggle. Was it lovely to hear

0:28:100:28:16

Shirley say you are in proving every

week?

Absolutely, that is what you

0:28:160:28:21

want to do and every Monday you go

back to Monday and you never get to

0:28:210:28:26

do this dance again, so sometimes

you do not feel like you are

0:28:260:28:29

improving, so when they say you are

improving, it is fantastic.

Jonnie,

0:28:290:28:35

your face. Did you think you would

be in the dance off?

I think I let

0:28:350:28:42

myself down in that dance. Nope! It

is true, it was not my best

0:28:420:28:50

performance, so we were relying on

the audience this week, so a massive

0:28:500:28:54

thank you to everyone who kept me

in.

Susan, the judges were quite

0:28:540:29:02

critical.

Yes, it was not the best

situation, but you know...

But the

0:29:020:29:13

real-life mother of Dragons sent you

this message.

Susan, my sources tell

0:29:130:29:19

me that you are playing the mother

of dragons this week on Strictly

0:29:190:29:23

Come Dancing. As the mother of

dragons myself, I wanted to wish you

0:29:230:29:31

luck because you are my favourite.

APPLAUSE

0:29:310:29:38

That is so good.

I am learning to dance from scratch,

0:29:380:29:45

I am loving dancing with Kevin

Clifton, he is so handsome. The

0:29:450:29:52

mother of dragons likes us and

people have voted for us and we

0:29:520:29:55

cannot thank people enough because

this is just joyous and we want to

0:29:550:29:59

keep on doing it. Thank you to the

mother of dragons and thank you to

0:29:590:30:04

the judges for their contribution to

my Halloween joy!

Well done to all

0:30:040:30:10

of

0:30:100:30:10

Well done to all of you.

0:30:100:30:12

If two nights of Strictly just isn't

enough, you can join the brilliant

0:30:120:30:15

Zoe every weeknight at 6.30pm

on It Takes Two.

0:30:150:30:20

The Halloween weekend may nearly be

over but on It Takes Two we still

0:30:200:30:24

have plenty of tricks up our

sleeves. Expect gruesome good

0:30:240:30:30

guests.

So excited!

This is

something else. And spine chilling

0:30:300:30:36

surprises.

This had better be good.

Join me on Monday at 6:30pm on BBC

0:30:360:30:45

Two.

0:30:450:30:49

Thanks, Zoe.

0:30:490:30:50

We're here with our dance off

couples, their next performance

0:30:500:30:52

will be their final chance to try

and win over the judges.

0:30:520:30:56

Simon and Karen, you've been here

before. How are you going to... Are

0:30:560:31:02

you going to throw yourself in,

listen to the judges' comments?

We

0:31:020:31:07

can only really do it one way, we

really like the routine. I've taken

0:31:070:31:11

in what the judges have said. Just

go for it, you know, it could be our

0:31:110:31:17

last dance. We're just going to go

for it.

Please get into position.

0:31:170:31:22

Let's hear it for Simon and Karen.

0:31:220:31:25

APPLAUSE

0:31:250:31:30

Mollie, what are you going to do

differently for the Dance-Off?

I

0:31:330:31:38

think we need to give everything

we've got. It is such a fun routine.

0:31:380:31:43

Just give everything we got inside

of us.

Don't hold back.

Exactly, no

0:31:430:31:48

holding back.

Best of luck. It's

always hard to say goodbye to any

0:31:480:31:53

couple but somebody must go. Dancing

to stay in Strictly. Give a big hand

0:31:530:31:59

to Simon and Karen.

0:31:590:32:01

MUSIC: "Delilah" by Tom Jones.

0:32:160:32:18

APPLAUSE

.

0:33:520:33:54

Well done.

And now, fighting for

their place in the competition, it's

0:33:560:34:03

Mollie and AJ.

0:34:030:34:05

MUSIC: "Better The Devil

You Know" by Kylie Minogue.

0:34:080:34:12

APPLAUSE

0:35:440:35:47

Well done to both couples.

0:35:540:35:58

There's nothing more you can do.

0:35:580:36:01

Judges, it's time to decide.

0:36:010:36:06

Based on that Dance-off alone,

0:36:060:36:07

I'm about to ask each

of you the name of the couple

0:36:070:36:10

you think deserves to stay and why.

0:36:100:36:12

The couple with the most votes

will remain in the competition,

0:36:120:36:15

meaning the other couple is out

of Strictly Come Dancing.

0:36:150:36:17

In the event of a split

decision head judge Shirley,

0:36:170:36:20

you will have the casting vote.

0:36:200:36:24

Simon and Karen and Mollie and AJ,

this is it. Craig, who are you going

0:36:240:36:30

to save and why?

I love the routine,

it was more technically demanding

0:36:300:36:34

and simply but, danced better and

that is Mollie and AJ.

0:36:340:36:42

Congratulations, Mollie and AJ.

That's one vote for you. Darcey, who

0:36:420:36:46

should stay and why?

The couple I'd

like to save, just because they had

0:36:460:36:53

a more competent performance, Mollie

and AJ.

Two votes for Mollie and AJ.

0:36:530:37:01

If Bruno votes to save you, then you

are indeed through to next Saturday.

0:37:010:37:05

Who do you want to stay, and why?

I'm going to pick a couple who I

0:37:050:37:10

really think did the better

performance in terms of content and

0:37:100:37:14

performance value and for that

reason I would say Mollie and AJ.

0:37:140:37:20

That means we're going to have to

say goodbye to Simon and Karen.

0:37:200:37:27

Mollie and AJ, congratulations. We

will see you next Saturday. And

0:37:270:37:33

Charley, it won't make any

difference to the result, but did

0:37:330:37:36

you agree with your fellow judges?

-- Shirley.

I did agree.

Simon and

0:37:360:37:45

Karen, please come over. Sorry, so

sorry! We're sorry to see you go.

0:37:450:37:52

Have you enjoyed yourself?

Do you

know, it has been the most amazing

0:37:520:38:00

experience ever, from the minute I

walked in through the door, the

0:38:000:38:04

Strictly experience is so positive,

every person is so positive. But

0:38:040:38:08

locked up there, the rest of the

class of 2017, magnificent people --

0:38:080:38:13

but that lot up there. Dancing

you'll never walk alone, it touched

0:38:130:38:20

people, I'll never forget that. The

charleston was brilliant. Every

0:38:200:38:24

person who has said thank you,

messages, it's been brilliant but

0:38:240:38:28

the biggest thank you obviously is

to Karen who has been amazing, who

0:38:280:38:36

has convinced this lumbering

54-year-old bloke that I could stand

0:38:360:38:40

up on a Saturday night and dance in

front of millions of people. She

0:38:400:38:43

become a proper friend not only to

me but to my family, and I can't

0:38:430:38:51

thank her enough.

Absolute he's done

well.

He's a beginner but you know

0:38:510:38:58

what, you've been such a great

performer and I've loved every

0:38:580:39:01

second, really. It's been a

privilege. Thank you for all the

0:39:010:39:05

food!

LAUGHTER

We've thoroughly enjoyed watching

0:39:050:39:13

the pair of you. A brilliant

partnership, thank you so much for

0:39:130:39:16

taking part. Off you go for your

last dance.

0:39:160:39:21

Commiserations to Simon and Karen.

The rest of the class will join Zoe

0:39:230:39:33

on Strictly It Takes Two.

0:39:330:39:36

0:39:380:39:39

We'll be back next Saturday at 6.50

And, please make sure you stay right

here on BBC1 for the launch

0:39:430:39:47

of Blue Planet 2 which is up next.

0:39:470:39:50

But now, with their final dance,

Simon and Karen!

0:39:500:39:53

I'm very sad to see Simon go. I

think he's an impeccable person.

0:41:090:41:14

Simon has been a special part of the

team.

He was really great, a lovely

0:41:140:41:19

man.

We're so grateful to be

through, aren't we, and so happy.

We

0:41:190:41:25

got tens.

Lucky number seven!

Yes,

it is.

Delighted to be through for

0:41:250:41:32

another week.

So happy.

We get to do

it again.

I hope next week I can do

0:41:320:41:39

a better dance and the longer it

goes on, the better.

So looking

0:41:390:41:42

forward to the American Smooth, we

can do some lifts.

It's going to be

0:41:420:41:48

the Paso Doble. It's exactly that!

We

0:41:480:41:53

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman reveal the results of the frighteningly fabulous Halloween special. Ballroom bigwigs Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood have cast their votes, which have been added to the viewers' votes, and now the two couples with the lowest combined votes face each other in the dance-off.

Then it is down to the judges to cast their spells and decide who stays and which couple will leave the competition for good. There is music from British dance pop group Steps, and the judges sit down with Claudia once again for a debrief of Saturday night's performances.
