The Tower Ballroom, Blackpool. This

is one of the most famous ballrooms

0:00:110:00:17

in the world.

This place is incredible!

There is

0:00:170:00:23

so much history in this room.

It is beautiful!

0:00:230:00:27

Just beautiful!

Dreams have been

made and shattered here.

0:00:270:00:33

A little bit terrifying. My family

are going to be so proud to see me

0:00:330:00:38

dancing here.

This is where I need to prove that I

0:00:380:00:43

deserve to be here.

We have made it this far.

Now it's

0:00:430:00:50

time to dance.

0:00:500:00:53

Stop what you are doing! Unless what

you are doing is dancing.

0:00:570:01:02

Ladies and gentlemen, Strictly is in

town!

0:01:020:01:08

Blackpool is full of sparkles. I

can't wait to see the strict list is

0:01:080:01:13

Ten! Keep dancing!

It's a ten! We can't wait for the

0:01:130:01:20

real Darcey Tecumseh Blackpool!

left the competition.

0:06:370:06:41

Oh!

We are now left with eight couples,

who are hoping to illuminate

the dancefloor and make

Blackpool rock.

0:06:450:06:47

people who should feel right at home

Our amazing eight!

0:08:360:08:37

Huge congratulations

for making it this far,

0:08:370:08:41

I'm sure you'll all deliver

performances fit for

0:08:410:08:44

this glorious ballroom.

0:08:440:08:45

No pressure!

0:08:450:08:46

You will be able to vote

for your favourite later on.

0:08:460:08:48

Your votes will be added

to the judges' scores,

0:08:480:08:51

to decide which two couples

will face the Dance-Off in Sunday

0:08:510:08:54

night's Result Show.

0:08:540:08:55

It's then down to the judges

alone to decide who stays

0:08:550:08:58

in the competition.

0:08:580:08:59

And dancing first tonight

in the Tower Ballroom is Mollie King

0:08:590:09:02

and her partner, AJ Pritchard.

0:09:020:09:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Looking

beautiful!

0:09:070:09:13

Looking beautiful!

0:09:130:09:17

Mollie is doing a Charleston,

0:09:170:09:18

and she's taking on the role

of a beautiful bird-of-paradise -

0:09:180:09:21

or, as they call them

in Blackpool, seagulls.

0:09:210:09:23

APPLAUSE

0:09:230:09:28

I loved that dance. We both gave it

everything we have. And I had

0:09:280:09:32

thought we had done it really well

until we got to the judges.

0:09:320:09:36

There was a lot of content, but all

the artistry went away.

0:09:360:09:41

I definitely thought Blackpool was

just gone.

0:09:410:09:46

Mollie and AJ! I could not believe

it.

We are dancing the Charleston at

0:09:460:09:54

Blackpool.

This week, we are dancing the

0:09:540:09:58

Charleston which is so much fun. In

Blackpool, everything has to be

0:09:580:10:03

bigger and better so I know what AJ

is like and he wants to throw in

0:10:030:10:08

some lifts.

Up here, down here, back

here come around here. It is going

0:10:080:10:12

to look fantastic on TV!

Lift me up! I'm so excited for

0:10:120:10:17

Blackpool and it means I can go up

North to see my family.

0:10:170:10:23

As Mollie's remark can't visit

London to watch the live show, they

0:10:230:10:26

decide to take the Hull experience

to her in Hull.

0:10:260:10:33

I had a surprise visit today, Mollie

and AJ.

0:10:330:10:37

And Nanette whipped out the family

photos, of course.

0:10:370:10:42

Oh, Nana, no!

She is cute! Have you been watching

0:10:420:10:48

the show?

Are you enjoying it?

Lovely. What are you dancing this

0:10:480:10:52

weekend? The Charleston.

Oh, that is hard! And we showed her

0:10:520:11:02

the Charleston.

I think you are

perfect together, I really do.

0:11:020:11:07

Ten! I wish you all the luck in the

world, but I enjoy it, that is the

0:11:070:11:11

main thing.

0:11:110:11:12

APPLAUSE

0:11:120:11:13

Dancing the Charleston, Mollie King,

and her partner, AJ Pritchard.

0:11:130:11:14

MUSIC: Wings.

0:11:170:11:27

APPLAUSE

0:13:060:13:16

Yes! Mollie and AJ, ladies and

gentlemen. Superb start to the show!

0:13:180:13:31

Just fabulous! You are so brave!

Yes!

0:13:310:13:39

Wow, those lifts Yes!

0:13:390:13:40

Where did they come from?

0:13:400:13:45

Your Nana Eileen is going to be very

proud of you.

0:13:450:13:52

While you two soak it all in,

let's say hello to our fabulous

0:13:520:13:55

live singers, Hayley,

Jamie, Andrea, Tommy

0:13:550:13:56

and, of course, Dave Arch

and his brilliant orchestra!

0:13:560:13:58

APPLAUSE

0:13:580:13:59

Good to see Dave getting

into the holiday spirit!

0:13:590:14:03

Let's chat to the judges.

0:14:030:14:04

Has Mollie found her

dancing wings, Shirley?

0:14:040:14:09

What a way to open the show in

Blackpool. You certainly found your

0:14:090:14:14

wings, let me tell you what I liked

this evening. You had slow movements

0:14:140:14:18

and slow, sensual movements, and you

came out and you gave it some attack

0:14:180:14:22

and you hit some lifts, very

difficult, and you executed them

0:14:220:14:26

while so I was pleased with you

today.

0:14:260:14:28

Thank you so much!

Smiling, that is a good sign.

AJ,

0:14:280:14:35

that is all you had to do, let the

bird out of the cage! Let her take

0:14:350:14:40

flight!

, down, upside down, spinning

0:14:400:14:45

around! Like a ride down on the

pleasure Beach. It is as much fun.

0:14:450:14:53

Much more confidence and strength.

Still some of the links sometimes,

0:14:530:14:57

you look like you are losing

direction, where are we are going?

0:14:570:15:01

You have to keep concentration all

the way through.

0:15:010:15:04

Great improvement, very good.

Thank

you!

0:15:040:15:09

Let's ask the swivel

king what he thought

0:15:090:15:11

of your Charleston, Craig?

0:15:110:15:15

There was no time at which made the

footwork clumpy and erratic, I

0:15:150:15:21

thought.

You sometimes had a floppy foot, you

0:15:210:15:25

had to choose to point it or flex it

but not in between.

0:15:250:15:30

But those lifts were and absolute

dream!

0:15:300:15:38

I am so glad he ended on a positive.

I thought there was a lot of

0:15:380:15:45

position, it was really exact.

Incredibly impressive lifts, very

0:15:450:15:51

daring. Just the one where you got

turned around and the shoulders

0:15:510:15:57

started to go out. Hold the frame.

You are getting better. Well done.

0:15:570:16:01

APPLAUSE

You are getting better. Well done.

0:16:010:16:09

Well done!

0:16:090:16:14

Mollie and AJ!

0:16:140:16:15

APPLAUSE

0:16:150:16:22

That is how you do it. How does it

feel?

0:16:220:16:27

It is a huge honour to open the

show.

0:16:270:16:30

The most incredible TV show. The

crowd are on fire. Thank you so much

0:16:300:16:35

to everyone.

The atmosphere is extraordinary. You

0:16:350:16:43

have this extraordinary respect for

dancers. You went to the winter

0:16:430:16:48

gardens last night.

I went to watch. It was

0:16:480:16:52

unbelievable, so good.

I have fallen in love with dancing.

0:16:520:16:55

Calman and her partner,

Kevin Clifton.

0:19:060:19:07

APPLAUSE

0:19:070:19:11

Their paso doble is based

on the movie Strictly

0:19:110:19:14

Ballroom, where a

novice overcomes the

0:19:140:19:16

competition, and triumphs

against all odds.

0:19:160:19:17

Will life imitate art tonight?

0:19:170:19:19

We're about to find out.

0:19:190:19:20

APPLAUSE

0:19:200:19:29

How did you enjoy this weekend?

It was pretty amazing. I love you in

0:19:290:19:35

your suit. It's how I imagine our

wedding picture would be.

0:19:350:19:40

I think you have danced from your

heart, you have come huge strides.

0:19:400:19:46

Blackpool.

Who knew? Not me.

0:19:460:19:52

We are doing the paso doble to the

final song in Strictly ballroom.

0:19:520:20:02

Everything is different. The judges

will be looking for Susan, even

0:20:020:20:06

though she is small, to be a giant,

she will have two fill the ballroom

0:20:060:20:12

with her dominance and presence and

power.

0:20:120:20:14

We are doing the end scene from the

film, I saw it as a kid, it has been

0:20:140:20:21

inspiring me for my whole life.

The final scene is a dramatic 1980s

0:20:210:20:27

.com petition. Kevin takes Susan to

the cinema for his vision of the

0:20:270:20:31

dance.

This bit gives me chills.

0:20:310:20:38

There are a lot of flamenco moves.

We need to capture the drama and

0:20:380:20:45

intensity.

The costumes are amazing.

0:20:450:20:49

Incredible costumes. You will look

just like that, that it is, the

0:20:490:20:53

famous move.

Oh, yes. Amazing. There is so much

0:20:530:21:02

to remember, the posture, the

intensity. I hope we can do it well

0:21:020:21:06

in Blackpool.

0:21:060:21:07

APPLAUSE

in Blackpool.

0:21:070:21:09

0:21:090:21:10

Dancing the paso doble, Susan Calman

and her partner Kevin Clifton!

0:21:100:21:14

MUSIC: Scott and Fran's Paso Doble

0:21:190:21:29

APPLAUSE

0:23:010:23:06

CHEERING

0:23:060:23:16

Come on over here. Superb. A superb

performance, one of my all time

0:23:240:23:33

favourite movies.

Good fun.

0:23:330:23:38

Will they see off the competition

with that performance, Bruno?

0:23:380:23:45

Susan, the drama queen. Somewhere

between Penelope Cruz and pantomime

0:23:450:23:52

queen. My favourite was the flamenco

section, building up like a pressure

0:23:520:23:58

cooker. About to explode. Great

intensity, but be careful to keep

0:23:580:24:04

everything big. All the shaping. Not

just your face but the body. At

0:24:040:24:11

times, it looked like a paso doble

that had shrunk in the wash.

0:24:110:24:15

Everything as to be powerful not

just in the face.

0:24:150:24:19

But great fun.

0:24:190:24:23

Craig, you scored Susan

a five last week.

0:24:230:24:25

How was her paso tonight?

0:24:250:24:28

Well, it needed more of everything,

more intent, purpose, dramatic

0:24:280:24:37

shaping in the body. Deliberate and

stronger use of the skirt, for

0:24:370:24:42

instance. The approach was a little

bit too soft.

0:24:420:24:47

But... I agree with Bruno.

I absolutely loved that flamenco,

0:24:470:24:55

that was excellent.

What we don't appreciate is how fast

0:24:550:25:04

this ballroom is it is daunting.

When you have to fill it, it is

0:25:040:25:11

difficult. There were moments where

you were trying to catch up. It is

0:25:110:25:15

about getting down and using those

soft knees to travel. The

0:25:150:25:22

exaggeration of shaping. Again,

those flamenco stamps sold it for

0:25:220:25:28

me.

Shirley?

0:25:280:25:35

I like to think there was a nice mix

of paso doble but I do believe the

0:25:350:25:41

Flamengo Park have to be kept inside

the body, you can't go out with

0:25:410:25:46

those.

The paso can go outside sometimes.

0:25:460:25:53

If you took the skirt to the very

end and released it, that would have

0:25:530:25:58

pleased Craig.

He covered the floor very well. And

0:25:580:26:02

I think you did well, well done.

The audience loved it. Well done.

0:26:020:26:14

You have done yourself proud and

blackballed proud.

0:26:140:26:16

Susan and Kevin!

0:26:160:26:17

APPLAUSE

0:26:170:26:18

CHEERING

0:26:180:26:28

the audience with you every step of

the way.

0:26:300:26:35

It feels extraordinary in here. It

is absolutely amazing, his dream

0:26:350:26:41

paso doble, in Blackpool.

You wanted to do this since you were

0:26:410:26:46

eight, you have been bedding

Strictly and finally they said, you

0:26:460:26:50

go.

How was it? Since I was eight, it

0:26:500:26:55

has been a dream to do that number,

and here with Susan, now one of my

0:26:550:27:02

best mates, and unbelievable moment.

All my goals are here. Fantastic.

0:27:020:27:10

Scores are in.

You are so adorable. You get a five,

you are, that is OK!

0:27:330:27:40

That will be perfect.

0:27:400:27:42

If you don't want Susan

and Kevin's number to be up,

0:27:420:27:44

then you will need to make sure

that they get your vote

0:27:440:27:47

Still to come.

0:27:530:27:54

It's like Uptown,

but a bit further down!

Next to dance is Debbie McGee

and her partner, Giovanni Pernice.

0:28:040:28:07

APPLAUSE

0:28:070:28:13

They're doing a samba,

the party dance.

0:28:130:28:16

Blackpool, are you ready

to party some more?

0:28:160:28:18

AUDIENCE:

Yes!

0:28:180:28:21

Good.

0:28:210:28:24

Then get ready for Debbie McGee

to Spice Up Your Life!

0:28:240:28:27

APPLAUSE

0:28:270:28:34

Saturday night was fun.

I loved that salsa.

0:28:340:28:41

Everyone loved the salsa, it had the

fluidity.

0:28:410:28:46

He swung me around with one hand. I

am proud of that lift because no one

0:28:460:28:50

has done it on Strictly.

Incredibly impressive. Only eight

0:28:500:28:55

couples are left and we are going to

Blackpool. You really feel a sense

0:28:550:28:59

of achievement.

This week, we are going to dance a

0:28:590:29:06

samba to the Spice Girls.

All their songs were fun and happy,

0:29:060:29:12

I am really looking forward to it.

Are you ready? I don't think so.

0:29:120:29:17

Look at your shoes, you need Latin

shoes.

0:29:170:29:20

I had better get my Latin shoes.

Let us do some samba. One of the

0:29:200:29:26

hardest things is the samba roll.

I am finding the samba roll rather

0:29:260:29:33

like a sausage roll!

It is difficult.

0:29:330:29:38

And again. It is a really weird

movement which stretches your hip

0:29:380:29:43

muscles. I need to soak in a bath.

This samba is killing me. I didn't

0:29:430:29:48

realise there was so much to learn.

I mustn't forget about.

0:29:480:29:55

The bounce action is fundamental to

samba.

0:29:550:29:59

Never stop bouncing. I am feeling

like a bouncy ball but I am having

0:29:590:30:03

fun.

It has been a hard week training.

0:30:030:30:06

Just about got the samba roll, just

have to remember to bounce and don't

0:30:060:30:11

make any mistakes.

0:30:110:30:12

Dancing the samba,

Debbie McGee and her partner,

0:30:150:30:17

Giovanni Pernice!

APPLAUSE

0:30:200:30:23

MUSIC: Wannabe.

0:30:230:30:33

MUSIC: Who Do You Think You Are?

0:31:250:31:35

APPLAUSE

0:32:090:32:10

CHEERING

0:32:100:32:21

Brilliant! Listen to that! You were

worried about the bounce, you had

0:32:270:32:34

the whole place bouncing! Super! It

is all priceless.

0:32:340:32:38

Let's see what the judges thought...

0:32:380:32:39

What they really, really thought.

0:32:390:32:42

Starting with Scary Spice, Craig?

0:32:420:32:47

I thought it was a little bit spiky,

a little bit stiff. I would like to

0:32:470:32:55

see the rolls a little bit smoother,

but I loved that you'd dropped into

0:32:550:32:59

the splits after that. And the

timing, I thought was absolutely

0:32:590:33:03

exceptional.

Yes! Thank you.

Well, I loved your

0:33:030:33:11

shadow rolls. The curve, the upper

body, it got better and better, very

0:33:110:33:15

impressive. Beautifully travelled on

your promenade runs as well. The

0:33:150:33:20

only think it was lacking in energy

by the very end, which I have never

0:33:200:33:25

seen you do in the past so the only

thing is, keep that energy and that

0:33:250:33:29

stamina, keep it strong.

Stamina.

What did you think of the

0:33:290:33:36

samba rolls?

You have the most

amazing vertical line through your

0:33:360:33:41

body so everything looks easy on the

eye. The Shadow reverse roll is one

0:33:410:33:48

person standing behind the other and

you have to reach far forward with

0:33:480:33:51

your hips and far back and you do/

cross, back sides together and keep

0:33:510:33:58

one rhythm going slowly with your

arms, you are outstanding in that

0:33:580:34:01

roll! And the reverse rolls.

Outstanding! Bruno. Thank you for

0:34:010:34:08

printing girl Power to the Tower! By

the way, if never danced better! I

0:34:080:34:16

love it. For me, it was a great

tribute to pop icons. Placed very

0:34:160:34:22

well, it was cheeky and it was

funny. I agree with the other

0:34:220:34:26

judges, the rolls, I tell you, they

were sizzling.

Excellent

0:34:260:34:30

performance, great Street.

Thank

you! It is girl Power and you've got

0:34:300:34:35

it, let's hear it for Debbie and

Giovanni. Thank you so much.

0:34:350:34:41

APPLAUSE

0:34:410:34:46

Well done, darling. If somebody told

you five years ago you would be in

0:34:460:34:50

Blackpool Tower Ballroom dancing

dressed as Geri Halliwell with this

0:34:500:34:54

one, would you have gone, no, don't

be ridiculous? I would think they

0:34:540:34:59

were mad! The dancers do not come as

naturally to you, how did you find

0:34:590:35:04

that?

I just totally enjoyed the

night. I don't know what I did, I

0:35:040:35:08

just had a great time!

And ginger

spies herself, that is not her name!

0:35:080:35:14

She sent a message. Yes, yesterday.

Lovely.

0:35:140:35:17

If you loved Debbie and Giovanni's

Samba, you can either...

0:35:420:35:45

A) Slam your body down

and wind it all around.

0:35:450:35:49

Or, B) Vote for them.

0:35:500:35:52

Your choice.

0:35:520:35:56

Tonight, they're doing a Tango

to the song 'Sweet Dreams'.

0:36:050:36:11

And after last week,

he's hoping it won't lead

0:36:110:36:13

to the nightmare of another

Dance-Off.

0:36:130:36:14

APPLAUSE

0:36:140:36:19

I liked the Foxtrot with you, it

felt like we were connected and

0:36:190:36:23

everything moved well.

Some of the

footwork was OK but at week eight,

0:36:230:36:27

it needs to improve.

It is not nice

when the red light hits you.

0:36:270:36:32

Blackpool was at stake it added to

the tension of the night.

0:36:320:36:36

Jonnie. Jonnie.

Jonnie and Oti.

Being that close would be hard not

0:36:360:36:44

to make it Blackpool, it is

incredible. This week, we have a

0:36:440:36:48

tango.

It is fast and staccato.

Jonnie is picking up a headache from

0:36:480:36:55

the speed of his head.

You've got to

do it quite sharp!

Our dance is

0:36:550:37:01

futuristic. Neon lights. It would be

amazing if we went to the iconic

0:37:010:37:07

Blackpool Tower and turned on the

Tower lights.

We have to show them

0:37:070:37:11

Strictly is in town.

There it is,

Jonnie, the iconic Blackpool Tower.

0:37:110:37:17

It's a bit dark and it needs

sunlight.

How do we get up there?

We

0:37:170:37:21

climb! Really? No, there is a lift.

Doing anything this weekend?

We are

0:37:210:37:27

dancing this weekend. This is how we

turn the lights on, are we doing it?

0:37:270:37:31

Let's do it! All right.

Wow! Can we

change the lights? Yes, I can change

0:37:310:37:39

the lights with my phone.

What

colour? Yellow. Lou. Yellow! Blue! I

0:37:390:37:48

think we have broken it. We had a

bit of fun today. Which ended up

0:37:480:37:52

with was breaking the Tower.

Let's

get out of here.

Jonnie! Slightly

0:37:520:37:57

awkward, not sure if we are going to

get up again.

Wow!

0:40:020:40:08

It is Jonnie and Oti! They are on

their feet in the Tower Ballroom. So

0:40:080:40:13

good, brilliant!

0:40:130:40:14

So good, brilliant!

0:40:140:40:18

A futuristic Tango.

0:40:180:40:20

But has he got a future

on the show, Darcey?

0:40:200:40:23

I thought Flash Gordon had just

arrived! When you came out, the

0:40:230:40:29

focus, thank you so much. The

determination, the attack was all

0:40:290:40:32

there, just what I wanted! Very nice

clip the transitions as well. I

0:40:320:40:39

would like if your frame had become

slightly lower and you could store

0:40:390:40:45

even more just bending those knees.

I could see you were working really

0:40:450:40:48

hard at holding those shoulders back

and your topline. That bottom is

0:40:480:40:54

still sticking out, sadly. You have

moments by the end where you started

0:40:540:40:59

leaning on Oti but a big difference

come well done.

0:40:590:41:04

The moody face.

0:41:040:41:04

The moody face.

0:41:040:41:06

Will that Tango be giving

you sweet dreams, Bruno?

0:41:060:41:11

I'm trying to dream in my mind how

to help you with your posture. I

0:41:110:41:15

think you need to think about the

tail bone of your spine pointing

0:41:150:41:20

downwards. And your chest.

Everything needs to be in a straight

0:41:200:41:23

line, not too far forward. In a

straight line. When the vertical

0:41:230:41:27

line becomes much stronger, the legs

operate much better. The frame is a

0:41:270:41:31

little bit better, but still posture

has got to be better.

Bruno.

I like

0:41:310:41:41

the techno- Tango. You look like you

were chasing around with

0:41:410:41:48

determination, whizzing and turning.

There was a section, you were so

0:41:480:41:52

well in sync. You kept all the same

angles. With the three professional

0:41:520:41:58

dancers. But let's talk about your

bomb! You've got irreversible bum

0:41:580:42:07

syndrome.

You are obsessed. I see it every

0:42:070:42:12

week and you say, I'm going to keep

it in. You kept sticking it out.

0:42:120:42:16

That stops you having the right

stance because you keep moving

0:42:160:42:20

forward. Apart from the bum, I like

the techno- tango.

0:42:200:42:25

He likes the bum secretly as well.

0:42:250:42:27

He likes the bum secretly as well.

0:42:270:42:29

I hope you're going to score him

more than a four this week, Craig.

0:42:290:42:32

You were leaning over Oti like the

Tower of Pisa. And that means we

0:42:320:42:37

missed the all-important fee shaping

that you have to really try and

0:42:370:42:41

achieve. It is also stompy for my

liking. Also, I didn't feel like you

0:42:410:42:49

were leading the dance, I felt like

you're reacting to Oti rather than

0:42:490:42:53

reading her. Rubbish! Not rubbish

actually, Darcey Bussell. But I

0:42:530:43:03

loved, loved the routine.

We all loved the Tango, didn't we,

0:43:030:43:11

ladies and gentlemen? Thank you very

much.

0:43:110:43:13

Thank you very much.

0:43:130:43:14

Jonnie and Oti!

0:43:140:43:15

APPLAUSE

0:43:150:43:17

Good job, my lovely.

I tell you what, we thought it was

0:43:170:43:25

magnificent.

You enjoyed it as well.

I did enjoy it but we knew the Tango

0:43:250:43:28

was going to be tricky and the

posture was a challenge so we tried

0:43:280:43:33

but I guess we forgot. Maybe I

didn't focus enough.

No, it was

0:43:330:43:38

perfect. We liked it just like that.

Just like that. Your best friend

0:43:380:43:44

Martin is here with your girlfriend,

Sally. So sweet, he was looking

0:43:440:43:47

quite furtive with the judges

comments.

He was the first person to

0:43:470:43:54

push me in my wheelchair. He went to

school and I feel like he had just

0:43:540:43:59

started school, sorry, and I came

back and I feel like you just needed

0:43:590:44:03

a friend so he pushed me.

Thank you,

Martin, we love you, come every

0:44:030:44:08

week! If you want, they might not

want to. Well done, it was

0:44:080:44:11

fantastic.

There is still all this to come...

0:44:460:44:47

Well done.

The Quickstep is so, so fast. I just

0:44:470:44:54

have to make sure I don't step on

Gorka's feat.

Choreography is tricky

0:44:540:45:01

places, it will tricky!

Aljaz has said for my eyes, look

0:45:010:45:08

over the rainbow, from one side to

the other.

It is about making it all

0:45:080:45:12

come together at the right time and

the right time is Blackpool on

0:45:120:45:15

Saturday.

0:45:150:45:19

I can't wait to see all that.

0:45:190:45:20

We are having such a nice

time here in Blackpool.

0:45:200:45:23

What have you got there, Claud?

0:45:230:45:29

It is a seagull and he needs in

this, I am good to see if I can find

0:45:290:45:33

him one.

0:45:330:45:36

Next up is Gemma Atkinson

and her partner, Aljaz Skorjanec.

0:45:360:45:42

Gemma's been to Blackpool many

times on family holidays,

0:45:420:45:45

but never in her wildest dreams did

she think she'd be dancing

0:45:450:45:49

an American Smooth in this

beautiful ballroom.

0:45:490:45:51

Did you find a nest

for that seagull, Claud?

0:45:510:45:54

Well, it was the strangest thing.

0:45:540:45:56

He just flew off.

0:45:560:46:00

I hope he found his nest.

0:46:000:46:05

LAUGHTER

0:46:050:46:06

APPLAUSE

0:46:060:46:13

How did you find last Saturday?

Everything you put into which was

0:46:130:46:18

lovely, I really enjoyed Saturday.

Out of all the steps in our Viennese

0:46:180:46:26

waltz, the hardest was the fleckerl

which is when the shoe came off. But

0:46:260:46:31

you recovered. And you didn't lose

your posture.

0:46:310:46:33

Incredible.

Cinderella lost her shoe

and she still got to go to the wall.

0:46:330:46:42

We are dancing and American Smooth

foxtrot.

0:46:420:46:45

I am struggling with pushing with

the standing leg, difficult when you

0:46:450:46:52

are in heels, a lot to think of.

She is really starting to understand

0:46:520:46:57

how controlled it has two B.

That is it. Our dance is set in a

0:46:570:47:03

tram in Blackpool, so what better

way than to travel in style in a

It is tinged with a little bit of...

Sightseeing is fabulous, we have

0:47:250:47:30

seen the illuminations, the tower am

the ride, it has been great.

0:47:300:47:38

I feel like I am a kid again.

And doing our dance will be

0:47:380:47:43

beautiful for you. I can't wait for

her to enjoy it.

0:47:430:47:47

We have had an amazing time but it

0:49:470:49:57

I love it, we are so proud of you.

You did so well.

0:50:080:50:14

I am so proud.

I can tell.

0:50:140:50:21

I bet you thoroughly enjoyed that.

Did they do the Tower Ballroom

0:50:210:50:26

justice?

You must be a really great student,

0:50:260:50:31

you listen and you listen some more.

It takes a great lady to listen to

0:50:310:50:36

the way the man is leading. Some

beautiful arm styling, you have made

0:50:360:50:42

me emotional. To the correct of --

correct side of the body, the head

0:50:420:50:48

was in the correct place, your

energy was incredible.

0:50:480:50:52

Bruno?

With this performance, it had a

0:50:520:51:00

weightless flow which was magic.

Graceful, elegant, exquisite use of

0:51:000:51:06

arms. You are getting better every

week. It is good to see somebody who

0:51:060:51:12

applies everything you say, you

work, combat and it gets better,

0:51:120:51:19

fantastic.

Getting better.

0:51:190:51:26

You were taking your pivots on your

toe. And your fingers, although

0:51:260:51:31

you're shaping of the hands is

improved, there was a bit too much

0:51:310:51:35

energy in them. But beautiful

control, the lines flowed well. And

0:51:350:51:47

you were listening to corrections

and improving.

0:51:470:51:50

That is fantastic to see, beautiful.

APPLAUSE.

0:51:500:51:59

The quality throughout, the tracking

of the feet, such control. You kept

0:51:590:52:04

your body taut and strong, beautiful

finishes of those lines, I really

0:52:040:52:09

loved it.

Making an improvement just when it

0:52:090:52:17

mattered the most, raising the

ballroom roof.

0:52:170:52:19

APPLAUSE.

0:52:190:52:28

You really are emotional. So proud.

What I love, you said, I am home.

I am so proud of you this weekend.

The weekend was good.

Amazing.

0:54:290:54:34

Never thought I would hear him say

that.

0:54:340:54:38

I can't believe it, incredible.

Bring on Blackpool.

0:54:380:54:47

This week, we are dancing the paso

doble and we are dancing to this

0:54:470:54:53

James Bond theme so I get to play

James Bond, brilliant.

0:54:530:54:56

The most important thing is the body

shape. If it is not right, it will

0:54:560:55:02

look like walking around.

Paso doble is a strong dance, about

0:55:020:55:08

hitting the right shapes, it is

quite dark and intense.

0:55:080:55:13

Because it is Blackpool, we have to

go big. You are going to parachute

0:55:130:55:19

onto the floor.

I have arranged a little treat.

0:55:190:55:22

Nadiya has a great idea of taking me

to an indoor skydiving centre to see

0:55:220:55:28

what it feels like.

Ready?

0:55:280:55:30

Yes, ready. Indoor skydiving, you

have to keep your hips forward, any

0:55:300:55:38

wrong moment and you are spinning

all over the place. I am training

0:55:380:55:41

and having fun. I always have fun

when I am training, Nadiya!

0:55:410:55:50

I think I have the hang of this now.

James Bond. I just hope on Saturday

0:55:500:56:00

So masculine. Never shied away from

You never shy away from

Bruno, did that put

you in double-O heaven?

0:58:300:58:33

Mission accomplished!

I think you have earned your licence

0:58:330:58:40

to thrill. And the outfit to go with

it, by the way.

0:58:400:58:45

Any time of the week.

I was slightly distracted, darling,

0:58:450:58:52

but I did notice your hands were a

little bit splayed. But a powerful

0:58:520:58:56

performance, incredible.

The sparks were flying between you,

0:58:560:59:05

it was strong, the attack, the

drama. Those arms and fingers, very

0:59:050:59:09

splayed. But very strong shaping and

everything, the drama.

0:59:090:59:18

A very dramatic performance from a

very masculine man but I have two

0:59:180:59:25

commend your twist and turn, you

swivelled your foot, a very

0:59:250:59:30

difficult figure and it was

extremely impressive, well done.

0:59:300:59:35

Your first time in Blackpool.

Off you go. What a performance.

CHEERING

0:59:440:59:45

total novice. And then Bond,

parachute, doing whatever they call

0:59:571:00:03

it, up, down!

Your mum and dad are

here. Yes, mum and dad! It feels

1:00:031:00:11

different now, I'm enjoying being

out there and dancing thanks to

Tonight, they're doing a Quickstep

APPLAUSE

1:01:251:01:27

How amazing was that day?

It was

insane. What an honour to do the

1:01:271:01:37

first Argentine tango of the series.

Incredible!

We had to nine, nine,

1:01:371:01:43

ten, ten.

This was my favourite! At

all the dances we have done, this

1:01:431:01:48

was the top for me.

But Blackpool, we are dancing the

1:01:481:01:52

quick stop any giant revolving coin.

You are doing something weird. I

1:01:521:01:59

think every single dance has been

the most challenging but this right

1:01:591:02:02

here, it has the stamina part, I'm

like, what? It is intense.

Going to

1:02:021:02:08

Blackpool!

So excited! We are

dancing on coins so we should go to

1:02:081:02:15

an arcade, a classic British seaside

activity, we have to go.

1:02:151:02:18

In which people know how to have

fun!

Ready to experience the true

1:02:181:02:22

Blackpool arcade?

Ready!

Let's do

it! I seem to be a natural at the

1:02:221:02:30

Penny push but Gorka, not so much!

I

lost all my pennies and Alexandra

1:02:301:02:38

won all of them.

Gorka had a chance

to redeem himself by playing air

1:02:381:02:41

hockey.

This is the one I used to

play all the time and I thought I

1:02:411:02:45

was quite good. Come on!

No, no! She

beat me again. Third time lucky,

1:02:451:02:52

Gorka and I went to the type grabber

and I really wanted that teddy bear!

1:02:521:02:56

You want that teddy bear, and brings

you a teddy bear!

It says, I love

1:02:561:03:01

you!

I love you too. Today has been

amazing, I feel like a five-year-old

1:03:011:03:06

kid. Hopefully, we have better luck

with our Quickstep than Gorka had

1:03:061:03:10

today at the arcade.

Gapping at the end, but is there

nothing you can't do? Incredible,

1:05:431:05:47

amazing!

Thank you. Darcey. Gorka, I

love this choreography. What you did

1:05:471:05:56

with the Charleston bits. And you

know what? Alexandra, the strength

1:05:561:06:01

in your topline, with the bounce of

this dance floor, not to show any of

1:06:011:06:07

that, it was effortless. Just

gorgeous!

Gorgeous!

I also loved the

1:06:071:06:16

musicality you did in this routine.

I didn't see any gapping from where

1:06:161:06:20

I'm sitting so you looks like you

are connected together really well

1:06:201:06:24

and the music was quite fast coming

kept up with it, we were all

1:06:241:06:27

bouncing here! You were so

energetic, it was full of life and

1:06:271:06:32

light and bright, well done.

Thank you! Bouncing on this lovely

1:06:321:06:38

floor at Blackpool. Bruno.

As fresh

as 20th -- as precious as 24 carat

1:06:381:06:44

gold! I mean, the detail, the style.

The accuracy. Intricacy. All done

1:06:441:06:53

with, I mean, it was magic. I could

not see any effort in what you did

1:06:531:06:57

and you did something that could

come out of a classic Hollywood

1:06:571:07:00

movie.

It was that good. Beautiful!

What comments! We think you are a

1:07:001:07:09

golden partnership. Tears again! You

are gorgeous. Claudia has a tissue.

amazing, I'm so happy to be with

1:07:251:07:29

these amazing people! I love you all

so much, honestly.

They love you as

1:07:291:07:36

well, the camaraderie is amazing.

And you often speak to somebody and

1:07:361:07:40

each week, you also crying, Gorka.

Each week, people go, I have had,

1:07:401:07:46

this is a harder stance. But you

said, no, I'm loving it! I wanted

1:07:461:07:51

I

1:09:211:09:24

wanted to go through every week but

this week, I really wanted to go

1:09:241:09:28

through. So happy.

Salsa in

Blackpool.

It is going to be epic.

1:09:281:09:36

Yes, let's do it! There is pressure

this week to make it a big, bad,

1:09:361:09:41

brilliant salsa because we are in

Blackpool, the home of ballroom. I

1:09:411:09:44

need to give the audience something

special.

It's a big number, a lot

1:09:441:09:49

going on, we have to have a lot of

energy moves in this salsa and one

1:09:491:09:53

of the greatest moves is the chess

pump.

1:09:531:09:55

The crazy! We need to make sure it

is not just the arms shaking, it is

1:09:551:10:01

his entire body, the rib cage is

going. And you've got to let loose.

1:10:011:10:06

As long as I get my chest down!

This series has been really building

1:10:061:10:11

up to this moment.

I never thought I would be so

1:10:111:10:14

excited about going to Blackpool!

This week, we are doing right on

1:10:141:10:19

time. I thought, wouldn't it be

great if you fly in on the clock?

1:10:191:10:24

Oh. A bit scared of heights.

No? A

little bit.

What better way to

1:10:241:10:29

prepare than to go to that! You are

entering the ballroom on the clock,

1:10:291:10:33

it is going to be a little bit like

riding on this wheel. But not this

1:10:331:10:40

high? You never know!

It is pretty

big! Great, we should do some

1:10:401:10:44

rehearsals.

It has been really great being here

1:10:441:10:48

in Blackpool and hopefully, it is

our time to shine on the dance

1:10:481:10:51

floor.

1:10:511:10:52

it is our time to shine

on the dance floor.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:12:511:13:01

Well done!

My goodness! They are on

their feet for you in Blackpool!

1:13:051:13:15

Strictly, raving!

1:13:151:13:16

Strictly, raving!

1:13:161:13:17

You just brought the house down!

1:13:171:13:19

Those lifts, so many wow moments.

1:13:191:13:24

You are amazing.

Darcey. The energy, that was

1:13:241:13:28

exciting. The attitude you brought

to this, totally different. And

1:13:281:13:33

very, incredibly difficult

choreography with your arms and

1:13:331:13:37

legs. There was some sticky moments.

I just felt something was incredibly

1:13:371:13:44

difficult and you are getting a

little bit sticky and it was not as

1:13:441:13:47

smooth as it could have been. The

lifts, they were absolutely

1:13:471:13:52

phenomenal as well!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Really

1:13:521:13:57

amazing. Like anything, it is the

amount of energy you throw into

1:13:571:14:01

something and the balance, with

those lifts at the end, where you

1:14:011:14:04

can control it and you change of

focus and think, this is a very

1:14:041:14:08

difficult lift, I have the focus,

and that is where the balance was

1:14:081:14:11

thrown. But your energy and your

excitement and your attitude didn't

1:14:111:14:16

fail.

Amazing!

I wanted to join in.

I think Darcey

1:14:161:14:24

said it all, I agree. You came out

and you had the most amazing energy.

1:14:241:14:30

You can use lateral hip swing and

you can use bigger eight movement.

1:14:301:14:34

You want more for the lateral swing

which is also acceptable. Good for

1:14:341:14:40

pressure and your lifts were well

done, just a nudge on the end, but

1:14:401:14:44

you saved like it even asked going

to... You saved it, so I was

1:14:441:14:48

impressed with that.

Yes!

How his hips, Bruno?

I don't

1:14:481:14:56

think you need a hip replacement, it

is all working quite well down

1:14:561:14:59

there! Yu Wang still areas! Shake

me, shake me! You were mental. You

1:14:591:15:07

through everything but the kitchen

sink at it. Great party mood, that

1:15:071:15:13

is what salsa is all about and saved

by the bell at the end. I was going,

1:15:131:15:18

my God! But you saved it!

Lacking in

the necessary protection in the

1:15:181:15:33

hips. You lost islands at the end

which was unfortunate. But I have to

1:15:331:15:38

say what a routine that was

something.

1:15:381:15:43

What a routine. A fantastic end to a

fantastic night in the Tower

1:15:431:15:47

Ballroom.

1:15:471:15:49

Joe and Katya!

1:15:491:15:52

APPLAUSE

1:15:521:15:56

CHEERING

1:15:561:16:00

Well done. You have never closed the

show before and you did it at that

1:16:001:16:09

-- at Blackpool.

It was a privilege.

1:16:091:16:13

It really is.

An extraordinary beauty.

1:16:131:16:19

You said you would do everything.

And you hate heights. Not so great

1:16:191:16:27

with heights but it is Blackpool.

1:16:271:16:28

Scores are in.

1:16:281:16:29

The judges have their scores.

1:16:291:16:30

1:16:301:16:32

1:16:391:16:40

Bruno Tonioli.

1:16:401:16:43

Nine.

1:16:431:16:50

Well done.

Are you happy? Very happy.

1:16:501:16:53

If you thought Joe and Katya's '90s

themed salsa was the perfect way

1:16:531:16:56

to end the show then,

1:16:561:16:58
