Last week, our celebrities got

Spooktastic.

Some left the judges

0:00:130:00:24

feeling great. It was an American

horror story.

And in the end, we bid

0:00:240:00:31

farewell to Simon. This week, the

celebrities have hit a milestone and

0:00:310:00:34

they are beginning to feel the

pressure.

We are at the halfway

0:00:340:00:38

point.

There is no option.

But. To

go out there.

And give it

0:00:380:00:44

everything.

Just to show the judges.

I deserve to be here. The

0:00:440:00:54

competition is on.

0:00:540:00:57

Live from the BBC,

0:01:420:01:44

this

is Strictly Come Dancing.

0:01:440:01:48

Please welcome your hosts...

0:01:480:01:49

Tess Daly.

0:01:490:01:52

And Claudia Winkleman.

0:01:520:01:56

APPLAUSE.

CHEERING

0:02:110:02:12

Hello and welcome to

Strictly Come Dancing.

0:02:120:02:15

Is everyone ready for another

weekend in the ballroom?

0:02:150:02:21

Last week's Halloween special saw

Debbie put the super

0:02:210:02:25

into supernatural and keep her place

at the top of the leaderboard -

0:02:250:02:29

scoring three 10s for her

Charleston.

0:02:290:02:31

And, there was a shock

in the dance-off when Mollie and AJ

0:02:310:02:34

faced Simon and Karen.

0:02:340:02:35

Sadly, it was Simon

who left the competition.

0:02:350:02:37

AUDIENCE: Aw!

0:02:370:02:40

Tonight, our remaining ten couples

will do all they can

0:02:400:02:42

to avoid the same fate.

0:02:420:02:45

And keeping a close eye

on proceedings are these four.

0:02:450:02:47

Please welcome the judges.

0:02:470:02:52

APPLAUSE.

0:02:590:03:09

The judges, everyone.

0:03:130:03:18

We're just over halfway

through the series and our couples

0:03:180:03:21

know they need to start taking some

risks and deliver something

0:03:210:03:24

sensational if they're

to avoid the dance-off.

0:03:240:03:26

I can't wait to see

what they've got planned.

0:03:260:03:31

It's time for....

Our top ten.

0:04:350:04:39

But who will make it to number one

on our judges' chart tonight?

0:04:390:04:42

No matter where they end up,

they'll still need your support

0:04:420:04:45

0:04:450:04:47

You will be able to vote

0:04:470:04:49

night's Results Show.

0:04:540:04:55

It is then down to the judges alone

to decide who will be the next

0:04:550:04:59

couple to leave the competition.

0:04:590:05:01

Dancing first tonight

is Alexandra Burke and her

0:05:010:05:03

partner Gorka Marquez.

0:05:030:05:04

APPLAUSE.

0:05:040:05:11

Tonight's routine is set in a jazz

club

0:05:110:05:13

and they're hoping to make

sweet music with their cha-cha-cha.

0:05:130:05:23

Saturday was amazing. The tango was

the perfect answer and I loved every

0:05:230:05:28

moment.

You came out with all guns

blazing. I really and truly loved

0:05:280:05:34

it.

You know when you think you meet

someone for a reason.

We danced

0:05:340:05:42

together for a reason. This week,

Alexandra and Gorka's cha-cha is set

0:05:420:05:48

in a jazz club. Today Gorka is

taking me to a jazz bar to give me

0:05:480:05:56

inspiration on how it will look on

Saturday night. I used to seeing a

0:05:560:06:00

lot of jazz and soul and went to

open microphone nights.

Here there

0:06:000:06:05

is an open microphone. Do you mind

to go up and sing for me?

Really?

0:06:050:06:13

# Summertime will stop seeing

Alexandra on the stage was amazing.

0:06:130:06:19

Today has been so much fun, to be

able to sing and start dancing with

0:06:240:06:31

Gorka and show everybody what we

have been up to is a lot of fun. We

0:06:310:06:34

want to take it from here to the

stage on Saturday night.

0:06:340:06:39

Dancing the cha-cha,

Alexandra Burke and her partner

0:06:440:06:46

Gorka Marquez.

0:06:460:06:51

MUSIC:

I Got The Music In Me.

0:06:510:06:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:08:240:08:34

Alexandra and Gorka.

0:08:380:08:40

What a start to the show.

0:08:400:08:44

My goodness. You are one red hot

salsa lady. I wanted to join him.

0:08:440:08:54

While you get

0:08:540:08:55

your breath back, let's

0:08:550:08:56

welcome our fabulous live singers.

0:08:560:08:58

Hayley, Lance, Andrea,

Tommy

0:08:580:09:02

and of course Dave Arch

and his brilliant orchestra.

0:09:020:09:04

APPLAUSE.

0:09:040:09:09

Just brilliant. You never fail to

impress.

0:09:090:09:11

Did that impress you Shirley?

0:09:110:09:16

What a way to stop the show. I want

to save the cha-cha has proved this

0:09:160:09:23

series to be difficult but not on

you today. You did forward walks.

0:09:230:09:28

You looked like a professional. One

leg here and another straight. You

0:09:280:09:40

put the cheeky in cha-cha-cha. You

were outstanding.

You are the

0:09:400:09:50

cha-cha goddess. I love the way she

started, all of the beauty and six

0:09:500:09:57

appeal of Naomi Campbell. And she

went off like Beyonce in full

0:09:570:10:04

flight. She takes no prisoners. It

had precision. It had cleanliness.

0:10:040:10:11

It was the best cha-cha-cha this

season.

Well-deserved comments. You

0:10:110:10:19

are not going to spoil it?

I Spy

with my little eye something

0:10:190:10:26

beginning with T. That stands for

turnout. You had to which we have

0:10:260:10:35

been demanding. Straight legs, I

really loved it.

Thank you.

0:10:350:10:42

Darcey, thumbs up? Yes, you are the

dancing Queen. What an opening,

0:10:460:10:54

flirty, confident. You have been

working hard and it paid off.

0:10:540:10:58

Incredible work. You are the dancing

Queen. You are starting to set the

0:10:580:11:06

standard. Well done, darling, what a

start. Alexandra.

0:11:060:11:18

Well done. You must be over the

moon. We can share that you were

0:11:180:11:27

nervous about going first.

I was

petrified. I did not know what

0:11:270:11:33

turnout meant, I did not know if it

was good or bad.

We were nervous

0:11:330:11:39

about what the T was for.

I was

nervous.

Pigeon again!

0:11:390:11:45

The scores are in.

0:12:010:12:06

Well done.

0:12:120:12:22

Gorka, you will write? Well done,

the first ten for a cha-cha which

0:12:250:12:31

has been the least popular this

series.

Are you happy? I am over the

0:12:310:12:36

moon.

Thank you so much. I love the

fact you were hugging me.

0:12:360:12:44

0:13:300:13:33

Our next couple is Mollie King

and her partner AJ Pritchard.

0:13:330:13:37

APPLAUSE

0:13:370:13:38

It was a shock to see them

0:13:380:13:40

in the dance-off last week,

0:13:400:13:42

but Mollie's determined

to bounce back with a foxtrot

0:13:420:13:44

based on a movie set.

0:13:440:13:46

We've got the lights

and the cameras, now it's up

0:13:460:13:49

to Mollie and AJ to deliver

the action.

0:13:490:13:50

Saturday was so much fun, but I

think from the comments, I could

0:13:570:14:00

have done better.

You have to be

careful how you place your feet.

0:14:000:14:05

Your shoulders, you start to wear

them as earrings.

Gutted to be in

0:14:050:14:09

the dance off. I don't want this to

be the end.

We are going to show

0:14:090:14:17

them.

Mollie plays a famous actress

in listing AJ as a runner.

Could be

0:14:170:14:26

my run for the day.

OK. You likely

want to make me a cup of tea, then?

0:14:260:14:33

The kettle that way. Some seedless

oranges, with seeds in, non-glittery

0:14:330:14:45

glitter. Have you got back?

Yes.

What was it again?

0:14:450:14:52

It's day three and we're doing the

foxtrot. Pink dress... AJ... Did you

0:14:570:15:04

get that?

Yes, foxtrot, pink. I

don't think this running is for me.

0:15:040:15:12

Thankfully, AJ has put his dancing

shoes back on, so fingers crossed,

0:15:120:15:16

we have an award-winning foxtrot

this weekend.

0:15:160:15:19

Dancing the foxtrot, Mollie King

and her partner AJ Pritchard

0:15:190:15:22

MUSIC:

Call Me Irresponsible.

0:15:250:15:33

APPLAUSE

0:16:530:17:00

Oh, Mollie!

Lovely Mollie and AJ. You looked

0:17:040:17:10

like a princess out there. How was

it for you?

Loved every minute.

0:17:100:17:18

Dance-off last week.

0:17:180:17:26

It started beautifully. You have to

understand, the foxtrot seems to be

0:17:260:17:30

easy, light and fluffy, but it is

one of the hardest answers to

0:17:300:17:33

control. In the first half, it was

absolutely beautiful, well-placed,

0:17:330:17:38

lovely side stretch on the back.

There was an incident on a turn,

0:17:380:17:42

when unfortunately... What happened?

Did you go one the wrong foot?

I've

0:17:420:17:49

no idea.

Apart from that, you did a

really good job in controlling

0:17:490:17:56

yourself, placing it well, elegant,

classy, nice job.

Thank you.

Cray,

0:17:560:18:04

what do you think?

Though were some

balance issues, but you recovered.

0:18:040:18:11

Your pivot's was sometimes taken on

a flat foot rather than on a heel.

0:18:110:18:18

You maintain your top line in the

good sections. The transitions were

0:18:180:18:22

really smooth. I thought it was

classy, stylish, and I thought it

0:18:220:18:26

was elegant.

APPLAUSE

0:18:260:18:34

Darcey, what did you think?

You are

turning into an elegant, stylish,

0:18:340:18:39

classy lady. We have gotten to know

you as a sweet couple, but that was

0:18:390:18:44

elegant all the way through. Even

though you were thrown by being

0:18:440:18:49

off-balance, you recovered well. You

are producing nice glide, and it

0:18:490:18:53

really is paying off. Keep this up.

Thank you.

0:18:530:18:56

Shirley, last week you asked Mollie

to work on her core.

0:18:560:18:59

Is that work starting to pay off?

0:18:590:19:03

I have an appreciation for you being

in the bottom two and coming out and

0:19:030:19:07

doing the performance you have just

done. You are to keep your shoulders

0:19:070:19:11

down. What was impressive for me was

how slowly you took the music. You

0:19:110:19:16

didn't race, didn't chase,

beautifully timed from both of you.

0:19:160:19:20

You had a beautiful, elegant line.

Just a little mishap, but impressive

0:19:200:19:24

that you picked it back up again.

Definitely going in the right

0:19:240:19:27

direction. Just that little slip

today, but otherwise a performance.

0:19:270:19:31

APPLAUSE

Going in the right direction. One

0:19:310:19:35

thing is for sure - she doesn't want

to be in the dance off again. Am I

0:19:350:19:40

right?

Please, yes.

0:19:400:19:41

Mollie and AJ!

0:19:410:19:51

I saw your little thing. You

recovered, and if that had happened

0:19:550:20:03

in week one or week two.

We worked

so hard and then I made that mistake

0:20:030:20:09

on the night, I'm so sorry.

But you

got straight back into position and

0:20:090:20:15

picked it up.

It added more

character. It is horrible to be in

0:20:150:20:19

the dance off then back in training,

but you just went, no, we will do

0:20:190:20:24

it.

You have to carry on, and we are

loving every minute. You have to

0:20:240:20:28

pick yourself up, and we're having

so much fun, so fingers and

0:20:280:20:32

everything crossed week.

0:20:320:20:32

The scores are in.

0:20:320:20:35

The judges have their scores.

0:20:350:20:36

Craig Revel Horwood.

0:20:360:20:38

Darcey Bussell.

0:20:380:20:41

Shirley Ballas.

0:20:410:20:42

Bruno Tonioli.

0:20:420:20:52

Same score as last week. But well

done, it's hard. They love you.

0:20:540:21:03

If you loved Mollie and AJ's foxtrot

and want to keep them

0:21:030:21:06

in the competition for another week,

all the details you need

0:21:060:21:09

are on your screen now.

0:21:090:21:10

Please don't call yet

as voting won't open

0:21:100:21:12

until all our couples have danced.

0:21:120:21:13

Still to come, Aston and Janette do

a Viennese waltz set

0:21:130:21:16

at the hairdresser's.

0:21:160:21:18

I had a haircut once, not my bag.

0:21:180:21:20

Tess.

0:21:200:21:24

Dancing next is Joe McFadden

and his partner Katya Jones.

0:21:240:21:27

APPLAUSE.

0:21:270:21:30

After last week's foxtrot,

the judges said how much they loved

0:21:300:21:32

Joe's brilliant story telling.

0:21:320:21:37

He's hoping that tonight's chapter -

0:21:370:21:39

The Charleston - has

another happy ending.

0:21:390:21:46

Davood Saturday night went really

well. Every is always room for

0:21:460:21:50

improvement, but the judges seemed

please.

A kiss from the Black widow

0:21:500:21:54

and you are toast. I have to say,

you managed this situation like a

0:21:540:21:58

master.

On the Leader Board there is

a nice place to be. I am keeping

0:21:580:22:07

good company.

Joel is performing as

a drumming soldier.

-- Cho. How hard

0:22:070:22:22

can it be? We came all the way out

to be with this marching band, and

0:22:220:22:26

it sounds amazing. It was really

good fun.

We were a little bit

0:22:260:22:30

rubbish, I must admit. I am sure

this band wouldn't want us to join

0:22:300:22:41

them.

It was lots of fun.

Wow! That

wasn't easy, was it? Are you ready

0:22:410:22:51

for the charleston?

Hopefully we can

drum up some good scores.

His

0:22:510:22:57

dancing is better than his jamming.

It has been a great experience and

0:22:570:23:02

hopefully we will be marching

through to next week.

0:23:020:23:06

Dancing the Charleston, Joe McFadden

and his partner Katya Jones.

0:23:060:23:10

MUSIC: Alexander's Ragtime Band.

0:23:150:23:25

APPLAUSE

0:24:370:24:47

Joe and Katya. You want to do it

again? They were so cute together.

0:24:520:25:08

You have really found your dancing

feet. Was a smile on your face,

0:25:080:25:14

Cray?

A smile on more than my face,

darling, actually! I loved it,

0:25:140:25:20

thought it was absolutely brilliant,

really did. I loved the Ragtime

0:25:200:25:26

passing thing, the little head

wobble you are doing, all the little

0:25:260:25:31

additions, the coordination,

darling, although is very difficult

0:25:310:25:34

positions bust up I thought it was

fantastic. The only thing I would

0:25:340:25:38

say is...

Oh, come on!

Your left hip

didn't swivel as much as you're

0:25:380:25:45

right. But that was great.

APPLAUSE

0:25:450:25:52

Darcey...

You gave us the charm of

the silent movies, never cheesy. The

0:25:520:25:59

timing was immaculate. Again, as you

said, surprising details. Ahead.

0:25:590:26:05

Wonderful swivel, really clean. I

loved it when you turn out that the

0:26:050:26:08

charleston Basic as well, very

impressive. That was a great

0:26:080:26:11

charleston.

Those acting skills come

in handy. Shirley...

Could it be

0:26:110:26:24

dark horse Joe? You have done

amazing today.

Bruder's face...

It

0:26:240:26:39

was effortless, the lifts were

synchronised. You timed it well,

0:26:390:26:43

took a rock, brought her down. It

was exquisite, you did your swivels.

0:26:430:26:47

I didn't see you not doing it on the

left. -- took her up.

What I like,

0:26:470:27:02

it had a charm, a festive feel,

almost like the Nutcracker. And then

0:27:020:27:05

it was this element of fun and games

and child's play, not over the top

0:27:050:27:13

slapstick. It was well judged, as a

child would put it together. The

0:27:130:27:18

choreography was incredibly

demanding.

It really was.

Keeping in

0:27:180:27:25

sync and doing things in opposition

is so difficult. Great job!

Yes!

0:27:250:27:30

Great comments. Well done, our toy

soldiers.

0:27:300:27:42

Well done. You love it when you have

to take on a real character, and

0:27:420:27:47

last week you said, I will show were

totally different side.

Hopefully I

0:27:470:27:51

did. We have to thank Jenny who

helped us put it together.

We also

0:27:510:27:59

have to say hello to your nephews,

who might be the cutest people.

0:27:590:28:06

Fellow! They might be asleep, but

anyway... Well done.

That is your highest score, your

0:28:320:28:36

curse. It used to go... I didn't

want to mention it.

0:28:360:28:42

If you thought Joe

0:28:420:28:43

was fantastic, please make sure

that they get your vote.

Next in the ballroom

is Gemma Atkinson and her

0:28:580:29:00

0:29:000:29:01

APPLAUSE.

0:29:010:29:04

Last week, Gemma took

on the jive as Buffy.

0:29:040:29:07

She slayed her vampire

and nailed the dance.

0:29:070:29:10

Now all she's got to do tonight,

is deliver a killer salsa.

0:29:100:29:18

How did it go last weekend?

OK, it

could have gone better. I forgot the

0:29:180:29:23

beginning.

Got on the wrong foot. It

was nothing. You did a good job.

We

0:29:230:29:34

got a good score. I want to come

back fighting. I do not want to go

0:29:340:29:38

this far and have it taken away.

This week, Gemma will dance a salsa.

0:29:380:29:47

In walks me and we dance salsa. What

else do you do when you meet a guy

0:29:470:29:52

in a bar?

Did somebody say bar? That

is where Gemma has taken Aljaz for

0:29:520:29:59

inspiration.

I have a grass skirt,

bracelets, headband. What are you

0:29:590:30:04

having?

This is a lovely clear

juice. I am trying my best to put

0:30:040:30:15

together a refreshing juice for

Gemma.

It is disgusting. Leave that

0:30:150:30:21

to the bartender and focus on

dancing.

The surprise this afternoon

0:30:210:30:25

was the lovely hula dancers.

Really

good.

I picked up some tips. We wish

0:30:250:30:35

her all the luck on Saturday night.

I hope it is better than Aljaz's

0:30:350:30:42

drink making skills.

0:30:420:30:43

Dancing the salsa,

Gemma Atkinson and

MUSIC: Sun Comes Up.

0:30:490:30:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:32:150:32:25

Oh, yes. Well done. That is a party

I want to go to. Brilliant.

What

0:32:280:32:40

about you, Darcey? Definitely hot

and saucy. When you got into the

0:32:400:32:45

split, very impressive. It is when

you get into the first lift, it

0:32:450:32:51

started to look laboured. I think

you got nervous when the lifts

0:32:510:32:55

happened. A little tip. When you go

into a lift you have to keep your

0:32:550:33:05

body taut because if you sink into a

lift, the man has nothing to push

0:33:050:33:10

from. It is difficult, especially at

speed. It is about a clean dismount,

0:33:100:33:17

so he has something to resist, as

well. Take that with you because it

0:33:170:33:22

is about detail now and we are

halfway through the competition and

0:33:220:33:25

we can see what you are capable of.

You are strong and I know you can

0:33:250:33:30

produce the goods.

Surely. I agree

with Darcey when it comes to lifts.

0:33:300:33:39

You have to have the core and great

timing. But it is beautiful to see

0:33:390:33:46

somebody rotate their feet in the

direction they are moving and you

0:33:460:33:52

did that exquisitely. Lovely

rotation around your centre and

0:33:520:33:56

great coordination with the other

half of the body.

0:33:560:33:58

APPLAUSE

Love that!

Bruno? Oh, darling,

0:33:580:34:07

always tasty with the right amount

of spice. You really are a good

0:34:070:34:15

dancer, you can do everything, but

at times, do not think, let yourself

0:34:150:34:21

go. Especially with the salsa. You

cannot be timid. The body moves all

0:34:210:34:27

of the time. All it is, it is

continuous. Do not overthink. When

0:34:270:34:34

you approach the lift, I can see,

oh, I am going to do a lift. I can

0:34:340:34:41

see it. And then, I am coming down.

You understand what I mean? You are

0:34:410:34:46

very good, but these thoughts cannot

be seen in the performance.

Yes?

0:34:460:34:52

Well done. Craig.

The lifts looked a

little bit heavy. You were not

0:34:520:35:02

exactly light coming out of them and

there was no real figure of eight

0:35:020:35:09

rotation on your hips. You got good

side to side but you need the

0:35:090:35:13

rotation and I agree with Bruno

about the continuity. The seamless

0:35:130:35:20

nature of this dance. We did not

quite get that but I loved the

0:35:200:35:24

routine. I loved what you were going

for.

Thank you very much. We laughed

0:35:240:35:33

the lifts. You are daring. Very

brave attempting them. -- we laughed

0:35:330:35:39

the

0:35:390:35:39

-- loved.

0:35:440:35:45

Gemma and Aljaz.

0:35:450:35:48

CHEERING

Well done. I think you said it was

0:35:480:35:58

like being on a roller-coaster.

A

huge lift. Three. But we did not

0:35:580:36:07

fall, he did not drop me.

It was a

lovely salsa.

It felt like. It was a

0:36:070:36:15

lovely salsa.

26, are you happy? Yes. When the

five came out, everybody went, what?

0:36:350:36:42

If you adored Gemma and Aljaz's

salsa and want to see

0:36:420:36:45

them back again next

week, please vote.

0:36:450:36:48

All the details you need

are on screen now and voting

0:36:480:36:50

will open once all of our

couples have performed.

0:36:500:36:53

There's still all of this to come...

0:36:530:37:00

This week we have a salsa and it's a

little bit more free and you can

0:37:000:37:07

have fun with it.

We just had one of

those. We are doing the Viennese

0:37:070:37:15

waltz and we are back in hold and I

love being in holes.

I am aware I am

0:37:150:37:21

a clean and tidy dancer.

I am happy,

we are in a good place.

I am a

0:37:210:37:33

fierce woman. My husband would say I

can be quite fierce.

0:37:330:37:36

I'm looking forward to that.

0:37:360:37:38

What are you doing, Claudia?

0:37:380:37:41

I've just borrowed the piano

from Alexandra's routine.

0:37:410:37:43

I didn't know you played the piano.

0:37:430:37:45

I can give you a little Bach.

partner Janette Manrara.

0:37:560:37:57

APPLAUSE.

0:37:570:38:04

Last week's powerful paso

bagged Aston two tens.

0:38:040:38:07

Tonight he's doing a Viennese waltz

to a song by Michael Jackson.

0:38:070:38:10

As a big fan, he wants to take last

week's score of 38 and "Beat It".

0:38:100:38:14

APPLAUSE

0:38:140:38:18

How did it go?

I loved it. The most

fun I have had on the Strictly

0:38:180:38:25

journey. Stunning. In the routine

Ginette made me do a solo.

You owned

0:38:250:38:34

the dance.

Think how high you

jumped. I was in the air. My

0:38:340:38:39

favourite week so far.

I was just

over the moon. This week it is a

0:38:390:38:46

Viennese waltz.

To Jackson 5.

Probably one of my favourite songs.

0:38:460:38:54

I heard you were once Michael

Jackson as a kid.

I did a show

0:38:540:38:59

called Stars In Their Eyes.

.

Tonight, Matthew, I am going to be

0:38:590:39:07

Michael Jackson. You are so cute. I

have not aged much. About the same

0:39:070:39:13

height, so that is fine.

I am a

massive Michael Jackson fan. I like

0:39:130:39:19

the outfit, we can bring back the

red trousers.

As long as they are

0:39:190:39:24

not those, because they are very

small.

He was amazing, singing and

0:39:240:39:30

dancing. Awesome. I know if you

channel your hero, you will be

0:39:300:39:35

amazing on the night.

0:41:510:41:56

And I love that Afro.

0:41:560:41:59

Second on the leaderboard last week.

0:41:590:42:04

You always bring your unique style,

from the paso doble last week, to

0:42:040:42:10

certain elements of this dance this

evening. I thought you had a good

0:42:100:42:15

attempt at a fleckerl, reasonably

good footwork and your pivot foot

0:42:150:42:19

work was good on your heels. I would

like you to feel you are absorbing

0:42:190:42:24

through the knees. It was poppy and

bouncing in areas. Not your best for

0:42:240:42:31

me. You did pretty good. I liked

certain elements but generally the

0:42:310:42:39

Viennese waltz should be flattered.

But a good try. Good try. The

0:42:390:42:44

audience enjoyed it.

The Viennese

waltz, it lost its way into 1974. He

0:42:440:42:55

has not quite found the way to

Vienna. As much as I liked the

0:42:550:43:00

concept. I like different things

that the Viennese waltz, imagine

0:43:000:43:05

swans gliding on a lake. There are

no sharp edges and nothing that

0:43:050:43:12

Paul's and throws. It is flawless

and weightless and I think by

0:43:120:43:18

putting this character across, the

dance lost the style. Not that you

0:43:180:43:23

are not a good dancer but somehow it

did not gel. Sometimes it works when

0:43:230:43:29

we take risks that this time it did

not quite gel.

A brave attempt.

0:43:290:43:38

Maybe it is their hair. The hair is

everything.

Craig. It had too much

0:43:380:43:44

attack and lacked grace and any form

of elegance. Your posture was a

0:43:440:43:48

little bit poor. Your feet closing

and your bottom sticking out. There

0:43:480:43:57

was an enormous amount of rise and

fall. You can have a slight amount.

0:43:570:44:02

You should try to dance this on an

even keel, as we have all said. Some

0:44:020:44:08

things do not always work out.

Darcey. We have high expectations.

0:44:080:44:17

We see what you can produce and you

are an incredibly confident

0:44:170:44:21

performer. It is natural for you,

especially out of hold, you come

0:44:210:44:27

alive. But when you are in hold, the

energy dies and I see you switch

0:44:270:44:32

off. There is concentration, a lot

of rotation, it is difficult, but I

0:44:320:44:37

want to see the energy in the top

line. To still enjoy it when you are

0:44:370:44:43

in hold. Keep that going, because

these ballrooms are just as

0:44:430:44:48

important as Latin.

Thank you. We

all loved it. Well done, darling.

0:44:480:44:57

Aston and Janette.

0:44:570:45:01

Aston, I'm so sorry.

Don't be sorry.

Did you agree with the comments? You

0:45:130:45:19

loved the waltz, made you quite

tearful, and this one, you didn't

0:45:190:45:24

like as much?

I thought the song was

amazing and I got excited. The

0:45:240:45:30

routine was great. We had fun, which

I think is the main thing.

The

0:45:300:45:37

audience loved it. Your dad and your

grandma, Charlie and Mavis, are here

0:45:370:45:41

for the first time. So, very well

done.

would you like to reply?

It's better

than a three!

You didn't do it

badly. We adored it.

I'm happy, and

0:46:170:46:28

that's what's important. We had fun

out there.

0:46:280:46:32

If you thought Aston

and Janette's Viennese waltz

0:46:320:46:34

was a highlight and you'd

Aston got a four?

let's see how the leaderboard looks.

0:46:510:46:57

We have five couples left to dance.

Tess.

0:47:020:47:07

And, our next couple

is Ruth Langsford and her

0:47:070:47:09

partner Anton du Beke.

0:47:090:47:10

APPLAUSE

0:47:100:47:12

They're doing the paso doble.

0:47:120:47:14

In this routine, Ruth

will be a Spanish senorita

0:47:140:47:17

from Seville and Anton will be

the manly, macho matador.

0:47:170:47:19

That's if Ruth allows it.

0:47:190:47:21

You were amazing on Saturday night.

I think you get slightly better

0:47:290:47:33

every week.

Thank you. I'm over the

terror and now I'm enjoying the

0:47:330:47:37

dance.

You have gained such

confidence. You made little mistakes

0:47:370:47:43

but you carried on.

Is a rare chance

we can --

is a chance we can enjoy

0:47:430:47:51

it and it go well?

Don't hold your

breath!

This week, the paso doble.

0:47:510:47:59

It is fiery and fast, but I have to

bring the performance, stop being

0:47:590:48:04

self-conscious, and the count and

the rhythm of the dance changes and

0:48:040:48:08

I have to remember where.

Five,

six... The easiest way for success

0:48:080:48:13

in the dance is to count out loud.

Two, three...

Oh, four. When you

0:48:130:48:21

can't remember the steps, it makes

you panic. Then you can't remember

0:48:210:48:25

the steps even more, like a vicious

circle.

You need to not be surprised

0:48:250:48:30

by what comes next.

It's ridiculous,

isn't it? Just frustration and

0:48:300:48:36

embarrassment. I love the paso

doble, but I find it hard and I'm

0:48:360:48:42

working hard.

Three and four...

I

hope, on Saturday, I can bring it to

0:48:420:48:47

the floor.

What did you think of this

senorita's paso technique, Bruno?

0:51:390:51:47

Skip it!

There is one thing, Anton,

she will never pass for a bull. And

Cray?

-- Craig? This is from a film,

this choreography, which was

0:52:120:52:27

essentially a drag act, which is

essentially what we got to know. It

0:52:270:52:31

is entertainment versus technique. I

think you are being really smart,

0:52:310:52:35

Anton, by choosing the entertainment

group, because at least the people

0:52:350:52:38

at home will vote for it, but I

can't possibly. Booing

I can't tell

0:52:380:52:49

you how hurt I am, and can I say,

surprised.

Ruth, if you could hold

onto a narrative like that all the

way through a dance, I want to watch

0:52:590:53:03

it every time. You came alive. The

looks you gave Anton, it was just

0:53:030:53:10

divine. It was like, come over here!

Put him in his place, I love that.

0:53:100:53:16

When it came together was those

wonderful cakes as you came round.

0:53:160:53:23

You controlled those. -- kicks.

Don't give up on the content or the

0:53:230:53:31

technique, you are going somewhere.

0:53:310:53:42

Bays-mac...

You represent absolute

joy, so I'm sure there's not a

0:53:430:53:57

household in England that didn't

enjoy that. -- Shirley. You had some

0:53:570:54:07

great promenade positions in there.

You had syncopated separation, the

0:54:070:54:13

start of the grand step, some basic

steps in there.

We had them all.

0:54:130:54:20

That was a very interesting paso

doble.

They enjoyed it. Thank you.

0:54:200:54:29

Such a charmer. And you always give

us fantastic entertainment. Off you

0:54:290:54:33

go, darling.

0:54:330:54:36

Ruth and Anton!

0:54:360:54:46

I think that might be the best thing

I've ever seen.

Did I trip you?

No.

0:54:510:54:59

I will discuss it with you later.

It

was so fun.

Can we stop saying fun

0:54:590:55:07

and start saying marvellous art?

It

was absolutely phenomenal.

Same as last week.

We did a sensible

dance last week and got 22.

That was

0:55:300:55:35

fantastic.

If that was 22, we've run

the mark.

0:55:350:55:42

If you think that Ruth

and Anton deserve to remain

0:55:420:55:45

in the competition, please make sure

that you give them your vote.

couples have danced.

0:55:530:55:56

This is how we will end this.

Everyone lie down!

Dancing next is

0:55:560:56:07

Debbie McGee, and her partner

Giovanni Panisse.

0:56:070:56:15

Last week, Debbie celebrated her

first 10s from the judges, this week

0:56:150:56:18

she celebrated her birthday.

0:56:180:56:19

Giovanni got her an amazing present

but some more 10s would be

0:56:190:56:22

the icing on the cake.

0:56:220:56:28

I loved doing the charleston with

you, I do like I was living the

0:56:280:56:31

dream.

I will give you my queen of

Latin crown. You deserve it.

A nine

0:56:310:56:41

and three tens, I am going to go for

40. And see if we can try and get

0:56:410:56:49

it.

In the week they are tackling

the tango, it's deadly's birthday.

0:56:490:56:59

Happy birthday!

Giovanni has a

surprise in store.

Here we are!

My

0:56:590:57:03

goodness!

We are going to go to

London.

In a helicopter?

Yes.

Sorry

0:57:030:57:15

about him, but he is with me. It

amazed me, the detail you could see

0:57:150:57:23

from a helicopter. We followed the

river, you could see the Houses of

0:57:230:57:27

Parliament. Wow! Look at that over

there. That's Buckingham Palace.

0:57:270:57:34

Your Majesty!

I will never forget

this birthday. It has just been

0:57:340:57:41

incredible. Hopefully, our tango

will take off and we'll be propelled

0:57:410:57:45

into next week.

Superb. Just brilliant.

Top of the leaderboard

for the last two weeks.

0:59:450:59:48

How did Debbie tonight, Craig?

0:59:480:59:55

Oh, what? This is a first. I have

never seen...

0:59:551:00:08

Oh!

1:00:081:00:13

My goodness.

Amazing, amazing.

That

is... We are speechless, literally.

1:00:131:00:27

Darcey. That was strange. Honestly.

Literally cannot believe it.

OK,

1:00:271:00:44

straight point, you gave meeting

goals down my back. That was

1:00:441:00:47

extraordinary. -- you gave me

tingles. I do not think I have ever

1:00:471:00:58

seen a tango like that from a

celebrity.

Amazing. It is getting

1:00:581:01:03

better.

Surely. Debbie McGee, that

was a beautiful international tango.

1:01:031:01:13

You had fast feet. You had no rise

and fall. For me, it was

1:01:131:01:20

outstanding. Every week, you are

flying high and that was

1:01:201:01:26

unbelievable. Congratulations, that

is one of the most difficult dances

1:01:261:01:31

and you executed it with first

class.

Bruno. My darling, it was

1:01:311:01:37

like watching a tango masterclass.

Flawless.

Voila. I think they liked

1:01:371:01:48

it. Incredible. Well done, Debbie.

Phenomenal. Happy birthday!

1:01:481:01:54

Debbie and Giovanni!

1:01:541:01:56

Superb.

Well done. Well, well done. That has

Dancing next for your votes

is Jonnie Peacock and his

1:03:521:03:54

partner, Oti Mabuse.

1:03:541:03:55

APPLAUSE

1:03:551:04:01

Jonnie and Oti were criticized

for their cha cha last week

1:04:011:04:04

but tonight they've got a chance

to salsa their way back

1:04:041:04:07

in the judges' good books.

1:04:071:04:13

I loved Halloween and dressing up as

a pirate but it did not go as well

1:04:131:04:18

as it should have. It went wrong

from the get go.

There was no

1:04:181:04:22

rotation and it lacked body action.

I was nervous at the Results Show.

1:04:221:04:27

We were in the danger zone.

But we

picked ourselves up and we go again.

1:04:271:04:37

This week we will be dancing the

salsa.

Shimmy! The salsa is about

1:04:371:04:42

the party and feeling fun. I love

with the salsa you get to lift

1:04:421:04:49

again.

I like to come up with new

lifts, dangerous lifts.

It will be a

1:04:491:04:53

challenge. Are you OK? It is scary

when you do a lift for the first

1:04:531:05:02

time. It can go wrong easily. Pretty

much her safety in my hands. The

1:05:021:05:10

lifts are cool. They are quite

dangerous. She has put a lot of

1:05:101:05:15

trust in me. I have to try my best

to learn the technique and make sure

1:05:151:05:20

I do it right. We just did a run

through in the studio for the first

1:05:201:05:24

time and I think it went OK. The

salsa is having fun and having a

1:05:241:05:29

good time and if we can show that

and nail the lifts, the dance should

1:05:291:05:32

be great.

Jonnie Peacock and Oti Mabuse.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:07:091:07:19

Jonnie and Oti. My mum is watching.

Cover it up. So much trust in this

1:07:261:07:36

relationship and you can see the

trust in the partnership. The lifts.

1:07:361:07:43

A hot series of lifts. The arms. How

you handled Oti throwing herself at

1:07:431:07:49

you and on the turns how you managed

those. You lack a lot of hip

1:07:491:07:55

rotation but you make up with it

with the upper body, the EE is, you

1:07:551:08:01

were comfortable. You have no fear

and it is a fabulous attitude, keep

1:08:011:08:06

that up -- ease.

Surely.

I'm sorry,

Bruno. I am on. You always deliver.

1:08:061:08:25

Your strength. The fearless attack

on the lifts. She was in a spin

1:08:251:08:30

dryer, so much in the air and

turning but you always manage to

1:08:301:08:35

catch her. You did not drop her, I

thought you were going to. And you

1:08:351:08:41

had a nice move on the upper half.

It must translate down. The salsa is

1:08:411:08:46

on the hip. You kept it going up

here while it should be a little

1:08:461:08:50

bit...

I need lessons from you.

Surely. I was right, it was you.

1:08:501:09:04

Week number seven and what is with?

It is not necessarily always the

1:09:041:09:08

lower half of the body but you can

have a natural pulse with the upper

1:09:081:09:14

body and that is what you have. You

did a double under arm turn and you

1:09:141:09:19

kept the pulse. You are finding

rhythms that suit Jonnie Peacock.

1:09:191:09:24

Thank you.

Craig.

I would like to

see more salsa but the beauty is you

1:09:241:09:35

showed Oti, which is amazing, you

presented her well. The lifts were

1:09:351:09:40

spectacular. A little bit more

rotation, but I loved it.

Not bad

1:09:401:09:49

from them. Well done, Jonnie.

Well

done. Jonnie, well done, darling.

1:09:491:10:06

Last week... They are animals! You

did not like the cha-cha last week.

1:10:061:10:11

You did not like it as much but out

there, you looked joyful and in

1:10:111:10:16

rehearsals and when I see you on It

Takes Two.

You have to go out and

1:10:161:10:21

have fun which is what I tried to

do. Maybe I do not have the hips

1:10:211:10:25

just yet but you have to try to have

fun.

salsa and want to vote

1:10:551:10:58

for them, all the details

and voting will open once

all of our couples have performed.

1:11:001:11:09

Still to come, Davood and Nadiya

performed the American Smooth.

We

1:11:091:11:14

have Claudia Fragapane and Kimberly

McDonald.

1:11:141:11:19

Up next is Susan Calman

and her partner, Kevin Clifton.

1:11:191:11:24

Tonight they're doing a jive

to a Shakin' Stevens classic,

1:11:241:11:27

and I'm sure they're going to bring

This Ole House down.

1:11:271:11:30

Game Of Thrones inspired Halloween

week was brilliant. It really was.

1:11:371:11:45

Four people in the room were less

pleased. It may have lacked

1:11:451:11:49

everything foxtrot is about.

We will

pick ourselves up and come back

1:11:491:11:54

fighting. Comeback jiving.

We will

not give up.

We never give up. This

1:11:541:12:00

week we are dancing the jive.

It

looks like a lot of fun. During

1:12:001:12:05

training, Susan got a visit from her

number one supporter, her wife.

We

1:12:051:12:10

are doing the jive today.

We have

put a lot in.

I can see you are

1:12:101:12:17

working hard.

Would you like to see

the jive? I would love to see it.

1:12:171:12:24

Seeing Susan dances two words, utter

joy. Well done, I loved it.

It was

1:12:241:12:30

nice for her to pop by and see what

we get up to in the training room.

1:12:301:12:34

Would you like to learn from Kevin

Clifton? I would love to. I think

1:12:341:12:39

she enjoyed the jive. She had a go

and realises how tiring it is. Good

1:12:391:12:46

luck for Saturday.

You will get

better and better.

You are amazing.

1:12:461:12:52

It has been lovely to have my wife

in the training room and hopefully I

1:12:521:12:55

will take all of the support into

our jive.

1:12:551:13:00

APPLAUSE

1:14:381:14:47

You were Jiving your

1:14:521:14:53

little heart out.

1:14:531:14:54

Was that as exhausting as it looked?

1:14:541:15:02

You gave some good face. Shirley,

you always love watching Susan. Do

1:15:021:15:10

you need... ? Did you love that?

I've got some bad news: I would

1:15:101:15:18

never let you pick my house, but you

can jive round my kitchen any day of

1:15:181:15:23

the week. You give us some slick

1:15:231:15:32

can jive round my kitchen any day of

the week. You give us some slick.

1:15:321:15:33

You showed how you can use pure

basics and still give entertainment.

1:15:331:15:37

You are back. You did very well.

She

is back on the market. You didn't

1:15:371:15:51

sell this jive, you gazumped it. You

were pumping it. She was giving it

1:15:511:15:58

everything she had. When we talk

about this pumping action, it is

1:15:581:16:03

elasticity on the leg. Some people

do it stiffly, kicking in and out,

1:16:031:16:07

but you had that lovely pumping

going through. Great rhythm and

1:16:071:16:10

timing. Well done. You are back.

Two

out of two saying you are back.

1:16:101:16:16

Craig, you scored Susan a three last

week - better tonight?

1:16:161:16:21

It is more than a three. It is a

vast improvement on last week. It

1:16:211:16:26

is, however, sadly a little flat.

You are not quite doing the

1:16:261:16:31

preparation for the kick. The timing

was fantastic and the synchronicity

1:16:311:16:36

was amazing.

Susan, you were pumping

out those kicks. The energy did not

1:16:361:16:48

fail at all. Well done on the

stamina and everything. You were

1:16:481:16:52

constantly coming back into sync on

the sequencing, and I loved your

1:16:521:16:55

facial expressions. They were

priceless. You didn't give anything

1:16:551:16:59

away. I would've liked a little more

contraction, but this is your dance.

1:16:591:17:08

She's back!

1:17:081:17:08

Susan and Kevin!

1:17:081:17:15

Well done. Really, really good. I'm

really proud of you.

Kevin and

1:17:151:17:21

Susan, they said you are back, that

that was your dance. You must be

1:17:211:17:25

over the moon, because last week,

they gave you quite are not back.

It

1:17:251:17:30

wasn't the best.

Quite good to come

back with a jive.

That is what

1:17:301:17:36

Strictly is about, taking the

comments on board and coming back

1:17:361:17:39

dancing. Keep dancing, that's the

point of the show.

Exactly. I didn't

1:17:391:17:45

get it - that's why we say! You must

be incredibly proud.

Incredibly

1:17:451:17:51

proud. Two weeks in a row they came

down quite hard on us, but her

1:17:511:17:55

attitude in training never change.

She was always positive and worked

1:17:551:17:59

really hard. I could not be more

proud.

If you thought Susan

and Kevin's Jive was fantastic

1:18:331:18:35

and you want to see them back again

next week, then please make sure

1:18:351:18:38

that they get your vote.

1:18:381:18:39

All the details are up

on your screen and voting will open

1:18:391:18:42

very shortly as we only have one

couple left to dance.

1:18:421:18:45

Tess.

1:18:451:18:53

And our final couple

are Davood Ghadami and his

1:18:531:18:56

partner Nadiya Bychkova.

1:18:561:18:57

Last week the judges

said their Rumba looked amazing

1:18:571:18:59

but they thought it lacked

proper Rumba steps.

1:18:591:19:02

So, for this week's American Smooth,

Davood and Nadiya are aiming

1:19:021:19:05

for both style and content.

1:19:051:19:07

I really enjoyed performing that

dance. There's nothing like it. It

1:19:131:19:17

had a haunting feel. The dance was

beautiful, the song was beautiful,

1:19:171:19:21

the style is very hard to grab hold

of and go for.

I loved the feeling

1:19:211:19:25

and emotion, but there wasn't enough

rumba in there for me.

It was my

1:19:251:19:30

favourite dance.

I know, I genuinely

came out of it thinking that I had

1:19:301:19:35

achieved something.

Foxtrot, it is

very important to get the footwork

1:19:351:19:45

right. American Smooth. It isn't one

of the most difficult dancers. The

1:19:451:19:51

movement should be gliding on the

floor. That is why I have to get him

1:19:511:19:56

to get his footwork right. Too

early. Five, six.

It may look like

1:19:561:20:04

we walking together, but there is so

much going on. There are aspects

1:20:041:20:07

where you step on your toes,

sometimes on your heel, some steps

1:20:071:20:10

are long, and it has to be elegant,

so you have to know what you're

1:20:101:20:14

doing. It is a long road ahead, but

if it goes right, this choreography

1:20:141:20:20

could be beautiful. I need to get

the lifts right as well.

Don't lift

1:20:201:20:23

me. It's not this.

You have to get

the framework, get the technique

1:20:231:20:28

right, get the lift right, but if we

don't get it right it could go come

1:20:281:20:33

crashing down. But I'm not going to

let that happen. -- it could all

1:20:331:20:41

come crashing down.

Dancing the American Smooth,

Davood Ghadami and his partner,

1:20:421:20:44

Nadiya Bychkova.

1:20:441:20:46

MUSIC: This Will Be

(An Everlasting Love)

1:20:461:20:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:22:161:22:26

What a finale! The audience are on

their feet. Congratulations, Davood.

1:22:291:22:37

Enjoy that? Bruno has given you a

standing ovation. Lovely lifts.

You

1:22:371:22:48

were like movie stars. A dashing

leading man, and you were gorgeous

1:22:481:22:55

as well. You really swept all of us

off our feet. There was the twinkle

1:22:551:23:00

of the eye of Gene Kelly, the

incredible hulk, and a performance

1:23:001:23:09

value of Fred Astaire. You did it

all in that dance.

Thank you.

1:23:091:23:13

Sensational. Craig?

It needs more

swing and sway. It would be amazing

1:23:131:23:24

if you had that. It is so difficult

for the celebrity meant to do that,

1:23:241:23:28

but I loved it. The release,

incredible. I loved that routine,

1:23:281:23:37

absolutely loved it.

Darcey...

Really controlled, smooth

1:23:371:23:45

transitions, a bit of Hollywood

glamour that you brought to that.

1:23:451:23:47

Most impressive was how you let her

and got into that lift. You lock

1:23:471:23:52

your elbow. It was so impressive,

how you recovered, and got into the

1:23:521:24:00

nice, fast end. Fabulous!

I think

you were totally awesome. I agree

1:24:001:24:10

with Darcey, the lift was amazing.

You have four legs, four arms, two

1:24:101:24:17

centres, and everything seems to be

in the right place and you are able

1:24:171:24:20

to move well today. Congratulations!

I think she likes it! Brilliant

1:24:201:24:25

finale. I think it lifted all of us.

Thank you so much, Davood and

1:24:251:24:33

Nadiya.

1:24:331:24:39

Davood, really, really well done.

You look quite shocked at the great

1:24:431:24:48

comments. They can be pernickety,

and you said in rehearsals, this

1:24:481:24:56

will be his break-out dance.

She

never told me!

You just did that

1:24:561:25:01
