Last week strictly packed its

ballings and hot-footed to the

0:00:080:00:11

seaside.

Some stars illuminated the Tower

0:00:110:00:17

Ballroom.

24 carat gold.

While

others didn't shine so brightly.

It

0:00:170:00:22

needed more of sort of everything.

But in the end it was Jonny whose

0:00:220:00:28

roller-coaster came to a halt.

This week, our celebrities's work

0:00:280:00:34

loads are doubling.

Training for one

dance was tough enough.

Now we have

0:00:340:00:40

two very different dances.

We will

be side by side dancing

0:00:400:00:45

competitively for the first time.

?

This will be the first ever paso

0:00:450:00:50

doble-athon.

One slip and there be

no hiding.

To win this competition

0:00:500:00:55

you have to stand out from the

crowd.

0:00:550:00:57

Live from the BBC, this

is Strictly Come Dancing!

0:01:440:01:47

Please welcome your

hosts, Tess Daly...

0:01:470:01:54

And Claudia Winkleman.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:140:02:16

Hello, and welcome to

Strictly Come Dancing!

0:02:160:02:18

In last week's Blackpool special,

we saw some truly spectacular

0:02:180:02:22

performances, and it was Alexandra

who quickstepped her way

0:02:220:02:25

to the top of the leaderboard

with a near perfect score of 39.

0:02:250:02:28

In a shock dance-off,

it was Jonnie and Oti and Debbie

0:02:280:02:31

and Giovanni who faced each other,

and sadly, it was

0:02:310:02:35

Jonnie who lost out.

0:02:350:02:38

We are now left with seven

celebrities who will have

0:02:380:02:40

to raise their game once more

if they want to make it to next

0:02:400:02:44

week's quarterfinal.

0:02:440:02:45

Also tonight, we have

a Strictly exclusive.

0:02:450:02:46

Our couples will be taking part

in our first ever paso-dobla-thon.

0:02:460:02:49

Capes optional.

0:02:490:02:56

I'm already on board.

0:02:560:02:57

All seven couples will be

competing against each other,

0:02:570:02:59

at the same time, on this dance

floor, which means extra marks up

0:02:590:03:02

for grabs for everyone.

0:03:020:03:06

And dishing out those extra

marks will be these four.

0:03:060:03:08

Please welcome the judges.

0:03:080:03:12

Darcey Bussell.

0:03:120:03:15

Bruno Tonioli.

0:03:150:03:18

Craig Revel Horwood.

0:03:180:03:19

And Shirley Ballas.

The judges, everyone.

0:03:310:03:34

Ole.

0:03:340:03:38

Our couples are backstage.

0:03:380:03:40

They're eager to impress

you not once, but twice.

0:03:400:03:44

So let's get them out here.

0:03:440:03:45

Please welcome our Strictly stars.

0:03:450:03:49

EastEnders star Davood Ghadami

and his partner, Nadiya Bychkova.

0:03:500:03:55

Popstar Mollie King and her

partner, AJ Pritchard.

0:03:550:04:00

0:04:280:04:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE .

0:04:390:04:40

And then there were seven.

0:04:400:04:42

The group may be getting smaller

but we're expecting big things

0:04:420:04:45

in the ballroom tonight.

0:04:450:04:46

You will be able to vote

for your favourites later on.

0:04:460:04:49

Your votes will be added

to the judges' scores to decide

0:04:490:04:51

which two couples will face

the dance-off in Sunday

0:04:510:04:54

night's result show.

0:04:540:04:56

And dancing first tonight is Joe

and his partner, Katya.

0:04:560:05:04

For tonight's dance they're

a couple of workers building

0:05:040:05:08

a New York skyscraper.

0:05:080:05:09

After last week's flying clock,

we know Joe's got a head for heights

0:05:090:05:13

but has he got the fast feet

for the quickstep?

0:05:130:05:17

How was Blackpool?

I really enjoy

it. I thought it was brilliant.

To

0:05:200:05:26

put op an ambitious routine, I was

having a ball.

That was exciting.

0:05:260:05:30

The attitude you brought to this

dance.

What a routine.

0:05:300:05:38

We want to take risks. . Safe is not

a good thing to be. And to still be

0:05:380:05:43

here, week ten. I am so proud of

you. Well done.

Salsa. Tick.

0:05:430:05:51

Today has been very tiring. The

hardest part of the quickstep is

0:05:510:05:56

maintaining the energy, and

remembering which rhythms you are

0:05:560:05:59

going into. What did I do wrong? It

is set on a skyscraper. So we get to

0:05:590:06:08

go to New York?

No but we might take

it to new heights.

0:06:080:06:14

It is the shard. When the lift doors

opened, oh, this is high. It was

0:06:140:06:22

overwhelming. You can see all of

London, from one point. Look at the

0:06:220:06:27

view. Spectacular. London Eye. Tower

Bridge. It is such a beautiful

0:06:270:06:33

place. It is awe-inspiring.

Now we

have seen this amazing London

0:06:330:06:38

skyline, remember that feeling, and

you have to channel it into your

0:06:380:06:41

dance.

Let us hope we are both on Cloud

0:06:410:06:46

Nine after performing at the

weekend.

0:06:460:06:48

weekend.

0:06:480:06:51

Dancing the quickstep, Joe McFadden

and his partner, Katya Jones.

0:06:510:06:56

MUSIC: Jumpin' Jack

by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

0:06:580:07:08

APPLAUSE

You will need a lie down after that.

0:08:510:09:03

What an energetic quickstep, they

are on their feet. A good start for

0:09:030:09:06

Joe. Brilliant.

0:09:060:09:13

While you two get your breath

back, let's welcome our

0:09:130:09:15

fabulous live singers.

0:09:150:09:16

It's Hayley, Lance, Andrea,

Tommy and of course Dave Arch

0:09:160:09:19

and his brilliant orchestra.

0:09:190:09:23

APPLAUSE

Fantastic.

0:09:230:09:27

APPLAUSE Fantastic.

0:09:270:09:28

What an energetic quickstep.

0:09:280:09:29

Shirley, you love Joe's energy,

did you love that?

0:09:290:09:33

You are definitely going on your way

to next week. You were unbelievable!

0:09:330:09:38

So let me tell you, you had a

mixture between basic steps,

0:09:380:09:46

intermediate steps and advanced. You

had beautiful chassises, double the

0:09:460:09:52

time, so many things, in there, your

posture was great. When you took

0:09:520:09:56

your hand and put them behind your

back and you went opposite side by

0:09:560:10:01

side, that is a well-known technique

in my industry and it is for superb

0:10:010:10:07

dancers that get that sensitivity of

touch between two people. It was

0:10:070:10:10

superb!

APPLAUSE

0:10:100:10:14

High praise.

The sky is the limit for Joe.

0:10:140:10:22

Excellent workmanship. Master

builder Joe. Solid technique,

0:10:220:10:28

beautiful detail, especially the

footwork. It was so light, so

0:10:280:10:32

accurate and yet you managed to

enhance all the rhythmal subtleties

0:10:320:10:39

in the music. Everything was spot

on. I love that hopping round step

0:10:390:10:44

you did, that was just brilliant. By

the way...

0:10:440:10:47

APPLAUSE

You can build my extension any time,

0:10:470:10:51

darling. After this. I will book you

in. For a refit.

Craig?

I thought

0:10:510:10:57

you were holding a bit of tension in

your top line. But, I have to admit

0:10:570:11:03

it was clean, it was light, it was

bright, the phasing through the

0:11:030:11:07

whole dance was exceptional, the use

of the floor, in fact stupendous

0:11:070:11:13

darling.

Stupendous. Darcey?

Wonderfully

0:11:130:11:18

authentic, it was a gorgeous

routine, it was quick, light,

0:11:180:11:21

spirited. How you played with the

music as the judges have said, I

0:11:210:11:25

would say your right elbow was

bobbing a little bit, if you could

0:11:250:11:28

fix that, it is true, but how you

filled the floor with the skip,

0:11:280:11:34

skip, oh... Skip, skip, such

wonderful moves. Brilliant.

Thank

0:11:340:11:42

you so much.

Fantastic comments.

Can't rest on your laurels. The paso

0:11:420:11:47

doble is later on. Great start. Well

done, Joe and Katya.

0:11:470:11:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:11:510:11:58

Well done. I love, during the

comments you looked very happy but

0:11:590:12:05

it is your face, because you must be

so proud of him, you worked very

0:12:050:12:08

hard, I know there was a dance strap

you hate.

That is getting burned.

0:12:080:12:14

She knows what it could be, so that

is why she is happy.

You enjoyed it.

0:12:140:12:19

It must have been hard, you were on

such a high after Blackpool but to

0:12:190:12:23

get back in the training room, I

think you said it is like Cheaming

0:12:230:12:31

Everest in flip-flops on Mondays

You

keep on going.

He worked so hard.

0:12:310:12:35

The energy for the dance we kept

building the stamina.

Well done. The

0:12:350:12:40

scores are in.

0:12:400:12:42

The judges have their scores.

0:12:420:12:46

Climbing Everest

0:12:560:12:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Wow. Wow.

That could have been such

0:12:580:13:06

a different story.

That is your

highest score. You haven't had a ten

0:13:060:13:12

for a while.

It has been far too

long.

0:13:120:13:17

Very well done. Well done do you and

your choreography, if you thought

0:13:170:13:22

the quickstep was an excellent start

Thanks, Ramon.

0:14:100:14:14

Tess.

0:14:140:14:19

Next up, it's Alexandra

and her partner, Gorka.

0:14:190:14:26

Alexandra is really enjoying her

Strictly experience.

0:14:260:14:30

It's fair to say she's

fallen in love with dance.

0:14:300:14:33

And tonight, she's performing

the dance of love, the rumba.

0:14:330:14:42

I loved Blackpool. I knew it was

going to be fun, it was going to be

0:14:420:14:46

an epic week. I didn't think it

would be that good.

The detail, the

0:14:460:14:52

style, the accuracy, it was magic.

You did something that could come

0:14:520:14:57

out of a classic Hollywood movie. It

was that good.

0:14:570:15:02

Every dream box was ticked, because

of that moment.

0:15:020:15:09

We are dancing the rumba to the song

A low by Beyonce.

One of my greatest

0:15:090:15:14

achievements was to sing with

Beyonce. When I listen to this song

0:15:140:15:19

it reminds me of the People around

me who are so loving and supportive.

0:15:190:15:24

The rumba is very slow. It means we

have to fill all the movements

0:15:240:15:29

between the steps with our body and

hips.

The rumba is really hard.

0:15:290:15:34

Because it is so slow and how

emotionally attached I am to the

0:15:340:15:38

song, I am finding it difficult to

relax.

To help with the motion,

0:15:380:15:44

Gorka has invited along Alexandra

boyfriend.

I want you two to try to

0:15:440:15:49

dance the rumba together so we can

get the feeling we will create when

0:15:490:15:54

we are dancing. Let's give it a go.

One, very good, two. Josh has helped

0:15:540:15:59

me to relax. I hope I can channel

that emotion into the dance with

0:15:590:16:06

Gorka.

Good luck with the dance on

Saturday. I will be watching and

0:16:060:16:10

sending you lots of love.

0:16:100:16:12

Dancing the rumba, Alexandra Burke

and her partner, Gorka Marquez.

0:16:120:16:15

MUSIC: "Halo" by Beyonce.

0:16:150:16:17

CHEERING

0:17:550:18:05

Alexandra and Gorka, gorgeous.

Beautiful when you dance.

0:18:090:18:11

Your boyfriend's watching at home

I'm sure he enjoyed that.

0:18:110:18:14

And you enjoyed

dancing to that song.

0:18:140:18:16

Yes.

0:18:160:18:17

Top of the leaderboard last week,

how did Alexandra do tonight, Bruno?

0:18:170:18:23

Well, we got the drama of the week

sorted, the torment, the conflicted

0:18:230:18:29

emotions, it was like a couple going

through a break-up and then getting

0:18:290:18:32

back together at the end. It was

really like a drama set to music. I

0:18:320:18:39

like very much the interpretation.

At times, I felt like you could have

0:18:390:18:44

extended a little bit more the

lines. It was so acted that you

0:18:440:18:48

could have stretched a little bit

more through your body, especially

0:18:480:18:52

on the hips, but I was very

intrigued by the performance.

Thank

0:18:520:18:58

you. The passion.

Craig. You needed

straight lens in your rumba waltz.

0:18:580:19:06

The reaches, as Bruno said, you need

to fondle extend them. Further

0:19:060:19:14

expert -- further extend them. I

thought you were missing the

0:19:140:19:18

placement. Unlike Bruno, I felt it

was more of the technical display

0:19:180:19:22

and I felt it lacked any connection

and chemistry. I really did. It is

0:19:220:19:28

only my opinion. But you should be

proud of yourself, it was a

0:19:280:19:32

beautiful dance.

Thank you. Darcey.

I can see you have worked incredibly

0:19:320:19:39

hard trying to finish of those lines

with your feet and everything. There

0:19:390:19:43

were some really nice accents. This

was the first time I have seen you

0:19:430:19:49

not express, it is the music, you

have such an ability to express the

0:19:490:19:53

music through your body. For me, I

was not seeing that desire, and as

0:19:530:20:00

Craig said, that connection, which

was unusual. I would have liked to

0:20:000:20:05

see more caress and resistance

through the floor of your feet, but

0:20:050:20:09

you are stunning dance.

I just

expect more. They are getting very

0:20:090:20:14

picky. The quarterfinals are only a

week away.

As your resident rumba

0:20:140:20:20

expert, where do you stand? I

thought you had quite nice emotion.

0:20:200:20:24

That part was good. I feel that

perhaps, when you dance to your

0:20:240:20:32

cha-cha, you got over this

brilliantly straight leg, you locked

0:20:320:20:35

it and moved your body weight over

it. To date look like your feet were

0:20:350:20:40

in front of your body. You wanted to

step. You stepped on every beat of

0:20:400:20:45

the music. There are four beats,

three steps, and one should be a

0:20:450:20:52

halt. The whole part is the part

where you can give more emotion. If

0:20:520:20:57

you are constantly moving on every

single step, busy, busy, you do not

0:20:570:21:01

have that moment in time. But you

are a great performer, you will come

0:21:010:21:06

back strong, well done.

Thank you.

Not your best comments, but three

0:21:060:21:17

weeks to the final, they are getting

picky. You can come back fighting in

0:21:170:21:20

the paso-dobla-thon. Let's hear it

for Alexandra and Gorka.

0:21:200:21:24

CHEERING

0:21:240:21:30

Well done. Thank you. You love the

quickstep last week on that bouncy

0:21:300:21:35

floor.

Talk about a gear change?

Yes, one fast and once loved. You

0:21:350:21:41

were worried because you said if it

is law they will see all my

0:21:410:21:44

mistakes.

It is important to grow

and learn. I enjoyed this dance. I

0:21:440:21:49

felt so great with you and I had a

wonderful time on stage but it is

0:21:490:21:52

good to get that kind of criticism

so I can work towards something and

0:21:520:21:57

hopefully get better.

OK, good girl.

Well done.

0:21:570:22:03

The scores are in.

0:22:030:22:06

The judges have their scores.

0:22:060:22:08

I felt the Halo.

That is great. I

thought it was going to be worse.

0:22:180:22:26

Very well done.

0:22:260:22:29

If you don't want Alexandra and

Gorka to be out of the competition,

0:22:290:22:32

then you will need to make sure

they get your vote.

0:22:320:22:35

All the details you need to see them

dance again next week

0:22:350:22:38

are on your screen now.

0:22:380:22:39

Please don't call yet as the vote

won't open until later on.

0:22:390:22:42

Still to come, Mollie and AJ

quickstep and Debbie and Giovanni

perform an Argentine tango.

0:22:450:22:46

Tess.

0:22:460:22:47

Next tonight, Gemma

and her partner, Aljaz.

0:22:470:22:52

This week, Gemma's doing

a samba, the party dance,

0:22:520:22:57

and after receiving her first tens

of the series for last

0:22:570:23:00

week's American smooth,

she's got plenty to celebrate.

0:23:000:23:02

The routine starts with them in bed.

I bet she's dreaming of a place in

0:23:020:23:07

the quarterfinal.

What a cracking

weekend we had.

Saturday night Fever

0:23:070:23:12

in Blackpool. It is too good to be

true. That is what it felt like on

0:23:120:23:18

Saturday.

I had to keep pinching

myself. You got a standing ovation

0:23:180:23:22

from Shirley.

Two names, two tens.

Hi-fi.

This week we are doing the

0:23:220:23:30

samba. The samba is a lot more

complicated than what I thought. It

0:23:300:23:36

is so confusing. There is a lot to

it, it is hard. The samba is fast

0:23:360:23:41

and punchy. It sounds like Thai

boxing. You know that outside of

0:23:410:23:46

dancing I do Thai boxing. Do you

fancy seeing what it is all about?

0:23:460:23:52

Yes. Really? Years. OK, Aljaz, this

is without train.

Let's get some

0:23:520:23:58

gloves on. I am scared. I've even

skipped like a dancer. I think

0:23:580:24:10

coming here is definitely going to

help. Seeing Gemma, how much energy

0:24:100:24:15

she has when she does boxing, we

need to put that on the ballroom

0:24:150:24:19

floor.

Just being in this

environment has given me a little

0:24:190:24:28

boost of energy, more confidence.

Hopefully we will have a knockout

0:24:280:24:32

performance on Saturday.

and her partner, Aljaz Skorjanec.

Dreams" by Billy Joel.

0:24:410:24:49

CHEERING

0:26:200:26:30

Gemma and Aljaz. The crowd are going

wild. Come on. They are sleeping on

0:26:320:26:36

the job. Come on. You can leave your

pyjamas over there. You're

0:26:360:26:46

exhausted. Well done.

0:26:460:26:53

Craig, you were blown away

by her ballroom last week.

0:26:530:26:55

How was her Latin tonight?

0:26:550:26:59

In the promenade, your hands looked

like soup ladles. You need to sort

0:26:590:27:03

them out. It was lumpy and awkward

at times. I felt this dance exposed

0:27:030:27:10

your weaknesses, sadly.

Rubbish. The

dream has turned into a nightmare.

0:27:100:27:18

Darcey. The whole narrative of this

dance was a little strange. It was a

0:27:180:27:23

sleepy party and I wanted it to come

alive and have the vibe of the

0:27:230:27:28

carnival like the samba should be.

It never woke up for me. It kind of

0:27:280:27:31

came through your body, the posture

and everything. Craig is right, that

0:27:310:27:38

free arm was not really directed.

The body should follow through right

0:27:380:27:42

into the arm, it should have

direction as much as your legs and

0:27:420:27:46

feet. All those technical things. I

do not believe this is your dance.

0:27:460:27:52

What do you think, Shirley?

I quite

liked the bedroom scene. They looked

0:27:520:27:58

as snug as a bug in a rug. You look

like you did not want to get up but

0:27:580:28:03

once you got started... Let me

clarify what I feel Craig means by

0:28:030:28:08

lumpy. When you hit the promenade

run you do one, two, three and you

0:28:080:28:13

do the movement. The non-standing

like should be passing beneath the

0:28:130:28:17

body ready for the next step. It

should be like one, two, three. That

0:28:170:28:22

is what gives the feeling that it

stops a little bit and it can lead

0:28:220:28:26

lumpy. You did a nice Volta. I was

quite pleased.

Well done.

Focus on

0:28:260:28:34

that. Thanks, Aljaz.

Bruno. It was

an absolutely perfect samba with a

0:28:340:28:45

hangover. It was the morning after

the night before. Absolutely right.

0:28:450:28:49

I have been there myself. Quite a

few times. Get on with it. The thing

0:28:490:28:56

is, you cannot let the

interpretation, which I thought was

0:28:560:29:00

very clever, you have to try

different things to keep interest.

0:29:000:29:07

But the interpretation stop to the

rhythm flowing through your body.

0:29:070:29:10

The samba is almost like being

hypnotised. You never lose that

0:29:100:29:14

sense of rhythm. It is continuous. I

think it is because you were trying

0:29:140:29:18

to play so many different parts, you

lost it a bit, but it was very cute.

0:29:180:29:24

Sometimes you try things and they

work better than others, but good

0:29:240:29:28

for you for trying something

different.

Thank you. Those are the

0:29:280:29:34

comments. You have another dance to

go.

I do not understand it. I do not

0:29:340:29:41

speak English.

Off you go.

0:29:410:29:46

You smashed it.

Well done darling.

0:29:520:29:57

Last week again, was absolutely

amaze, you didn't like the samba,

0:29:570:30:01

you didn't like the rolling.

I did

enjoy that, I thought it was fun to

0:30:010:30:05

do a dance that was different to the

last one.

Bruno loved the fact you

0:30:050:30:09

were trying something different.

Thank you Bruno.

I would rather try

0:30:090:30:15

and fail than not try.

I am really

proud of you.

0:30:150:30:21

An excellent voltas, whatever they

are.

0:30:210:30:23

An excellent voltas,

whatever they are.

0:30:230:30:24

The scores are in.

0:30:240:30:25

The judges have their scores.

0:30:250:30:31

Massive progress!

It is normally the

other way round. It is normally the

0:30:440:30:51

celebrity...

0:30:510:30:51

It is

0:30:510:30:53

If you enjoyed Gemma and Aljaz's

samba and you want to see them

0:30:530:30:56

dance again next week,

then please vote for them.

0:30:560:30:58

All the details you need are up

on your screen now and voting

0:30:580:31:01

will open after the paso-dobla-thon.

0:31:010:31:02

There is all of this still to come.

0:31:020:31:12

It has been an intense week, every

part of my body aches, I have a

0:31:140:31:19

friction burn on my side. Things are

getting more serious.

0:31:190:31:24

Think about beat and whether you are

low and high on the steps. A lot to

0:31:240:31:29

take in.

It is vital that you move when you

0:31:290:31:33

are meant to, because otherwise you

end up kicking each other and

0:31:330:31:36

getting entwined in each other.

I

have to pick up the pace, I am

0:31:360:31:40

moving like a snail. I need to get

going.

Do the correct steps.

Oh,

0:31:400:31:46

that is a good tip!

0:31:460:31:49

Oh, that is a good tip!

0:31:490:31:50

I can't wait to see all that,

and I'm really looking forward

0:31:500:31:53

to Susan's routine set

on a cruise ship.

0:31:530:31:55

Where is Susan going

on her cruise ship?

0:31:550:31:57

Alaska.

0:31:570:31:58

OK, because I would like to know.

0:31:580:32:00

Alaska!

0:32:000:32:02

Good.

0:32:020:32:04

And when she tells you, let me know.

0:32:040:32:06

Alaska, Claud, Alaska!

0:32:060:32:10

If it's too much trouble,

I'll ask her myself.

0:32:100:32:19

Our next couple is Mollie

and her partner, AJ.

0:32:190:32:27

Tonight they're dancing to a swing

version of the Rihanna song

0:32:270:32:30

Umbrella, so get ready

for a quickstep from

0:32:300:32:32

Mollie and her brolly.

0:32:320:32:35

Blackpool was amazing. When we were

doing that spin, for the first time

0:32:410:32:47

ever, everything went into slow

motion, it was a feeling I will

0:32:470:32:50

never forget. Really you are getting

better, well done.

0:32:500:32:55

All I can do is my best, if she sees

an improvement, that is the biggest

0:32:550:33:02

compliment I could ask for.

This week we have the quickstep, I

0:33:020:33:08

am so excited about it, this looks

so much fun. You have to be like

0:33:080:33:14

lightening round the floor, the fact

I have to move fast is daunting.

0:33:140:33:18

Daunting.

Have to be revenge niced

together, we have to stay calm

0:33:180:33:25

together so we stay matched.

I get

so nervous on the Saturday night, I

0:33:250:33:29

know last time we did a ballroom I

tripped up. I need to build my

0:33:290:33:34

confidence up. Here a timely visit

from her biggest fan. You are so big

0:33:340:33:40

aren't you. This afternoon my nephew

and sister came down to visit us.

0:33:400:33:46

Did you watch us dancing? Shall we

watch it again?

Yes.

I have the best

0:33:460:33:51

family in the world. Their support

means everything to me. We love

0:33:510:33:57

watching Mollie dancing an we can't

wait for Saturday. William loved the

0:33:570:34:01

dance. I hope more than anything I

don't let them down this weekend.

0:34:010:34:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Yes, yes.

Beautiful job. Beautiful

0:36:060:36:13

job Mollie and AJ. Standing ovation

in the studio. Well done.

0:36:130:36:17

Listen to that.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:170:36:23

What a reaction from the audience.

That must feel good. Oh, perfectly

0:36:230:36:28

matched. You have such great

chemistry, I can see how hard you

0:36:280:36:32

have been working.

0:36:320:36:33

have been working.

0:36:330:36:34

Darcey, last week you saw a real

improvement, what about tonight?

0:36:340:36:37

Very good Mollie. It was so

confident, focussed, it was assured.

0:36:370:36:44

With all that footwork, the

complexity, how you kept it clean

0:36:440:36:49

and crisp impressive. It is so

exhausting and I could see the

0:36:490:36:53

second half the shoulders started to

rise, so keep those down, and you

0:36:530:36:56

know it is in the feet. Making sure

we never notice when you are coming

0:36:560:37:00

to the end. Keep that energy level

right until the very end. Well done.

0:37:000:37:04

Thank you.

APPLAUSE

0:37:040:37:08

Shirley.

Well Mollie you have made

huge strides when it comes to your

0:37:080:37:15

frame and the three-quarters of the

way round today you were amazing, I

0:37:150:37:20

agree with Darcey you ran out of

stamina which affected the end. The

0:37:200:37:25

way you kept your arms, like wing,

they were like wings, and they flew

0:37:250:37:29

this time, there was no hanging, no

sagging, you kept it up. That showed

0:37:290:37:35

me your core was improving, then

your footwork improve, you did

0:37:350:37:40

rolling pivots, you step forward,

turned, that is one of the most

0:37:400:37:45

difficult things.

Very good.

Well done, Shirley is

0:37:450:37:48

applauding you. Brow know.

The fog

has lifted. What we have got, a

0:37:480:37:57

bright, lively clear quickstep. You

have improved so much. Usually, what

0:37:570:38:03

happened in the past, in the flow of

things you never clearly finished

0:38:030:38:08

the movement, you were doing fast

turn, and it was a bit wobbly at the

0:38:080:38:13

end. Tonight, no, my darling, there

you were, clear and crisp, keeping

0:38:130:38:21

the lines beautiful, placed

footwork, keep going, that is the

0:38:210:38:23

way to get to the final.

That is what we like to hear. Craig.

0:38:230:38:31

I am seeing the effort in your

footwork being reproduced in your

0:38:310:38:35

top line, you dropped the ball

really towards the end of it. I

0:38:350:38:40

thought you were jolty on some of

the runs and there was something

0:38:400:38:43

happened at the end, I don't know

what that was supposed to be.

That

0:38:430:38:48

was my fault.

Whatever it was, it

wasn't anything. You are making so

0:38:480:38:56

much progress, I have to agree with

them. Wonderful to see. It really is

0:38:560:39:00

wonderful to see.

They all can see

improvement. Just when it matters

0:39:000:39:05

the most you step it up to the

place. Can't wait to see you in the

0:39:050:39:09

paso doble. Well done, Mollie and

AJ.

0:39:090:39:14

APPLAUSE

0:39:140:39:19

Well done. They love you. They love

you. All you want is to hear that

0:39:220:39:29

you have improved and all four said

it

That is biggest compliment ever.

0:39:290:39:34

I know I am not naturally the best

dancer here but I am just trying so

0:39:340:39:39

hard, if you can notice an

improvement so that is so much for

0:39:390:39:42

me and thank you for you, for

putting up with me.

The scores are

0:39:420:39:47

in.

0:39:470:39:49

The judges have their scores.

0:39:490:39:58

APPLAUSE

Yes!

They are all shouting kiss, we

0:40:070:40:18

would all like it, but, OK, we will

wait till the wrap. Can I share this

0:40:180:40:21

with the group. That is your first

nine.

I know!

Plaus plaus. Week ten

0:40:210:40:28

and it is your highest score.

Thank

you Bruno.

They are shouting, OK.

0:40:280:40:34

They are shouting kiss, we will

ignore them. If you love the

0:40:340:40:38

quickstep and want to see them next

week make sure you vote.

0:40:380:40:43

All the details you need

to are on your screen now

0:40:430:40:46

and the vote will open

towards the end of the show.

0:40:460:40:50

They are like, do it now. AJ. Come

on!

0:40:500:40:59

This has taken a weird turn.

0:41:010:41:03

This has taken a weird turn.

0:41:030:41:04

Still to come, Debbie

is in Argentina.

0:41:040:41:06

I think she took the wrong exit

driving back from Blackpool.

0:41:060:41:09

Dancing next is Davood

and his partner Nadiya.

0:41:090:41:17

Last week, Davood delivered

a James Bond paso that would have

0:41:170:41:20

impressed Daniel Craig,

but for tonight's waltz,

0:41:200:41:22

the only Craig he has

to win over is this one.

0:41:220:41:30

Blackpool.

Amazing.

I think it is

the most memorable performance.

0:41:320:41:37

Absolutely.

I don't think I will

forget it

I think you have earned

0:41:370:41:42

your license to thrill.

To get good

marks and knowing Nadiya was

0:41:420:41:47

pleased. I was emotional because I

felt like we achieved something

0:41:470:41:53

good.

Mission accomplished.

It is a different style of dance

0:41:530:41:58

week for Davood.

Waltz in general,

it is a difficult dance, especially

0:41:580:42:03

for a man to lead me into every

step.

You have to make sure your

0:42:030:42:07

weight is in the right position,

your alignment, the relationship

0:42:070:42:12

with your partner.

Davood struggles

a bit, every movement is a different

0:42:120:42:16

timing.

There are beats you have to

hold and positions you have to hold,

0:42:160:42:20

if they are not right it will be

obvious. You have to remember the

0:42:200:42:23

rise and fall which is important in

the waltz.

One and two, three. On

0:42:230:42:27

the one, this is the lowest point

and you start to rise on two, and on

0:42:270:42:31

three is the highest point when you

are on your toe, and it is again,

0:42:310:42:36

one two three.

Practising the one,

two, three of the waltz. Even got my

0:42:360:42:40

hand in the right position. One,

two, three, OK. Keep working on it.

0:42:400:42:46

Straighten your elbow this way.

Have

have been working hard all week, I

0:42:460:42:50

hope we get it right when it count,

because it can be such a beautiful

0:42:500:42:55

ballroom dance and I didn't want to

risk it not looking that way.

0:42:550:43:01

ballroom dance and I didn't want

to risk it not looking that way.

CHEERING

0:44:480:44:58

Wonderful. A wonderful waltz.

Another standing ovation.

0:45:030:45:07

Another strong performance.

0:45:070:45:12

Soak it up. Beautiful.

0:45:120:45:13

You've stripped things back tonight.

0:45:130:45:22

He has proved himself an

all-rounder. He has delivered for

0:45:220:45:26

two weeks in a row.

Has he done it

tonight? I do believe he has. You

0:45:260:45:32

have taking me back in time. Here

are breath of fresh air. Matt Teale

0:45:320:45:37

suit is stunning. I stripped back

version of the classic waltz. The

0:45:370:45:41

most beautiful clothes when you

brought your feet together. Not too

0:45:410:45:45

much beautiful -- not too much

popping and dipping.

On a beautiful

0:45:450:45:51

even plain. Bruno, I'll be looking

at the quarterfinal is?

Definitely.

0:45:510:45:56

Look at them. They look like movie

stars. Gorgeous. A gorgeous waltz.

0:45:560:46:03

It was stylish, it was extremely

elegant, it was simple but so

0:46:030:46:08

effective. I was totally charmed.

We

all were.

Beautiful. Craig. The only

0:46:080:46:16

thing it needed was more swing and

sway, which is that forward and back

0:46:160:46:20

were side to side movement, which is

very difficult. The professionals

0:46:200:46:26

have that, obviously, but elegance,

Grace, taste, gentility, darling,

0:46:260:46:33

simplicity, beautiful.

High praise.

Darcey. It was effortless. The care

0:46:330:46:38

that you had on hold with Nadiya,

the control, no affectations, I love

0:46:380:46:46

that. The amount of travel as well

and this lovely romance. My kind of

0:46:460:46:50

waltz.

For someone who had not dance

before Strictly, you make it look

0:46:500:46:57

easy. Effortlessly brilliant. It is

Davood and Nadiya.

0:46:570:47:03

CHEERING

Very, very well done.

As they said,

0:47:030:47:13

Tess said and the judges said,

simple.

You wanted to strip it back.

0:47:130:47:22

Yes, we decided to do that.

Lucky

socks. They are back on. Excellent,

0:47:220:47:26

they have not been washed.

This week, Gorka reveals his horse

whispering background.

0:48:070:48:09

Tess.

0:48:090:48:12

I know. They just did a horse

impression. Everything is complete.

0:48:120:48:17

Dancing next is Debbie and Giovanni.

0:48:170:48:21

Last week, Debbie found

herself in the bottom two

0:48:210:48:24

and survived the dance-off.

0:48:240:48:26

Tonight she's got to put that drama

behind her and focus on the intense

0:48:260:48:30

drama of the Argentine tango.

0:48:300:48:38

Saturday, I really love doing the

dance. I was just really sad to be

0:48:380:48:42

in the dance-off. It might have been

me that went. I did feel that I give

0:48:420:48:48

it an extra something to prove that

we deserve to still be in the

0:48:480:48:53

competition.

I will save Debbie and

Giovanni.

We have lots of hard work

0:48:530:48:57

ahead of us, one of the biggest

performing challenges that I have

0:48:570:49:00

ever faced in my life. The Argentine

tango is a really intimate dance. It

0:49:000:49:08

is very, very difficult. I am really

tired. My brain does not want to

0:49:080:49:13

work. I felt my age today. I could

not push it any further than I was

0:49:130:49:17

pushing it.

To help Debbie get her

groove back, Giovanni takes her to

0:49:170:49:26

see a demonstration by former

Argentine tango world champion

0:49:260:49:32

Vincent Simoni.

Your noses touch,

sensual.

Of course. Not only do you

0:49:320:49:38

dance with the top, your feet have

another story to tell. It is the

0:49:380:49:44

look and they embrace that you guys

are going to have when you dance

0:49:440:49:48

this beautiful dance. It is all

about the Passion of every single

0:49:480:49:52

step. I think they are going to do

an amazing tango.

I feel totally

0:49:520:49:57

inspired. If I can perform this

well, this will be one of my most

0:49:570:50:03

memorable weeks on Strictly.

0:50:030:50:09

Dancing the Argentine tango,

Debbie McGee and her

0:50:090:50:10

partner, Giovanni Pernice.

0:50:100:50:12

MUSIC: "Por Una Cabeza".

0:50:120:50:16

CHEERING

0:51:520:51:58

Wow!

0:52:080:52:11

Yes. Mesmerising. Just sensational.

Look how happy Giovanni is. Listen

0:52:110:52:21

to the audience. Multiple splits. So

flexible. Focus, Sharp. I know the

0:52:210:52:33

dance-off is not a nice place to be,

but you meant business tonight.

How

0:52:330:52:37

did she do? Debbie, the queen of

Buena ciders. More than that, you

0:52:370:52:46

really use the dance floor tonight.

Like it was a canvas. Your legs,

0:52:460:52:51

they were like a paintbrush in the

hand of a great artist. Drawing the

0:52:510:52:57

most beautiful pictures you could

imagine.

It was splendid.

Thank you.

0:52:570:53:03

More artistry.

Do you agree, Craig?

You truly amaze me. You're totally

0:53:030:53:09

unbelievable. I wish I could dance

like you, my darling. I do have one

0:53:090:53:17

small note, however, there is always

something. Your legs, if you do this

0:53:170:53:24

again, and I hope you do one day,

you're like action is a little bit

0:53:240:53:28

too placed. The man leads and the

like should sort of plot. It should

0:53:280:53:35

be a loose leg and that makes it

look a little bit more spectacular,

0:53:350:53:41

but while.

Craig wants to be you. --

but wow.

The articulation and the

0:53:410:53:51

line in those legs is outstanding.

Beautiful. Your balance, with the

0:53:510:53:56

amount of technical detail, is

extraordinary. I only have one

0:53:560:54:00

little pic, and I can because you're

stunning, when you had that amazing

0:54:000:54:06

circle lift. If you could hold your

frame. It was like you were taken by

0:54:060:54:11

surprise. But my goodness, the end,

that little French, I loved it. --

0:54:110:54:22

little fringe.

I found the whole

thing to be quite emotional. I am a

0:54:220:54:30

57-year-old woman, I pride myself on

my balance, but I have never seen

0:54:300:54:35

balance like that.

Your outstanding.

Thank you, judges. High praise

0:54:350:54:40

indeed. What about that ladies and

gentlemen?

0:54:400:54:47

CHEERING

0:54:470:54:53

Well done, sweetheart.

You were in

the dance-off. You felt that was

0:54:570:55:01

going to happen but you did not

mind.

You have struggled this week.

0:55:010:55:06

Yes, I pulled a muscle in my back

three weeks ago. With all the lifts,

0:55:060:55:12

it really played up, so with a

couple of days left, we thought we

0:55:120:55:15

would have to cut them, and I have

really pushed it.

Very well done.

0:55:150:55:21

Working hard. The scores are in.

The

judges have their scores.

0:55:210:55:32

Yes, yes, well done. Very, very well

done. You must be over the moon with

0:55:430:55:50

those scores.

Jealous.

0:55:500:55:56

If you thought Debbie and Giovanni's

traditional Argentine tango

0:55:560:55:58

was perfect, then you will need

to give them your vote.

0:55:580:56:00

All the details are on your screen

now, and the vote will open

0:56:000:56:04

at the end of the show.

0:56:040:56:05

Well done.

0:56:050:56:05

Still to come, the paso-dobla-thon.

0:56:050:56:10

Imagine the Black Friday sales set

to Spanish music.

0:56:100:56:11

Tess.

0:56:110:56:13

Our final couple to dance

before the paso-dobla-thon

0:56:130:56:15

is Susan and her partner,

Kevin.

0:56:150:56:19

Last week's paso saw Susan

at the bottom of the leaderboard.

0:56:190:56:24

Tonight's American smooth is set

on board a luxury liner but will it

0:56:240:56:27

be good enough to see them cruising

through to next week's quarterfinal?

0:56:270:56:30

To do that number in that wonderful

dress, in Blackpool, was just

0:56:360:56:40

brilliant.

At times it looked like a

paso doble that had shrunk in the

0:56:400:56:46

wash.

25, bottom of the leaderboard.

I was sure we were going to be in

0:56:460:56:52

the dance-off. Susan and Kevin. It

was just the euphoria of thinking

0:56:520:56:57

that we were going to go through.

Well done. This week we are dancing

0:56:570:57:03

the American smooth foxtrot to

beyond the sea.

At courting couple

0:57:030:57:10

on the deck of the ship, having a

romantic dance. I should get you

0:57:100:57:14

more in the mood so I have arranged

a trip on the Waverley, the world's

0:57:140:57:20

last seagoing paddle steamer. That

sounds great. Shall we have Anna

0:57:200:57:25

Holligan five.

Ahoy. -- an ahoy

five.

Here we go. And we are there.

0:57:250:57:38

Kevin, it is like Titanic, so

romantic.

Here we go. This is where

0:57:380:57:43

the action is. We have had a great

day. Susan took me the Waverley. I

0:57:430:57:48

was pretending I was captain,

steering the ship. How inspired do

0:57:480:57:54

you feel about our dance?

Inspired

enough to dance right now. We have

0:57:540:57:58

worked really hard in the training

week. I hope it is full steam ahead

0:57:580:58:06

for are American smooth.

0:58:060:58:10

Dancing the American smooth,

Susan Calman and her

0:58:100:58:12

partner, Kevin Clifton.

0:58:130:58:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:59:510:59:57

You American smoothie, that was

lovely. Well done. Well done.

Thank

1:00:061:00:09

you.

I think I counted three lifts.

Yes.

One very high one.

Some lovely

1:00:091:00:17

bench work too. Craig, has Susan

done enough to stay away from the

1:00:171:00:22

bottom of the leader board?

Probably

not. There was gapping, your feet

1:00:221:00:27

never closed, your hand were plonky,

timing issue, getting on to and off

1:00:271:00:32

the bench. Legs had a mind of their

own in that last lift. You need to

1:00:321:00:36

think about where you are going to

put them. As an entertainment piece

1:00:361:00:40

I thought it was sweet and

charmingful

Darcey.

There was a

1:00:401:00:46

glimmer of Hollywood films there, it

was cool, charge, sophisticated and

1:00:461:00:50

it was never overdone, which was

nice, it was subtle. I could see you

1:00:501:00:58

had your Fred Astaire, you could

have have crated more -- created

1:00:581:01:02

more sweeping lines, in the

transitions you get the feet

1:01:021:01:05

together every time to make sure

they are cleaning it up. I enjoyed

1:01:051:01:10

the lovely liftings and everything.

A bit more of that would have been

1:01:101:01:13

fabulous.

Shirley?

Think you looked

beautiful today Susan, I want to

1:01:131:01:19

comment on that.

Thank you.

Your

setting, the music the cheeky kiss

1:01:191:01:26

with Kevin, the entertainment factor

for the audience is outstanding but

1:01:261:01:29

it is coming to that time in the

competition where you need

1:01:291:01:33

particularly in this dance, to feel

your standing leg flexed and long

1:01:331:01:38

strides back, much more technique I

would have liked today in the

1:01:381:01:41

foxtrot. It missed out on that but

you did do some entertain work.

1:01:411:01:46

Thank you very much.

Bruno?

Beyond

the sea and beyond belief. I was

1:01:461:01:54

going to scream iceberg ahead, she's

going to go down, but you didn't.

1:01:541:01:57

You were saved by the bench. She

went up and down so many times it

1:01:571:02:03

was like a bouncing ball. But the

thing is with you, you have at this

1:02:031:02:08

stage you are beyond criticism, what

you do, you do a charming turn, I

1:02:081:02:12

love watching you, people love

watching you, you are approachable.

1:02:121:02:20

But they all say technically you are

not quite as advanced as you could

1:02:201:02:24

be at this stage, so, if you stay in

apply a bit more technique because

1:02:241:02:29

entertainment value is there, but

technically you need to work a bit

1:02:291:02:32

harder.

OK, no problem. Thank you

very much indeed.

Hugely

1:02:321:02:38

entertaining and you have one more

dance to go.

Absolutely.

1:02:381:02:44

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:02:441:02:49

Work

1:02:581:02:58

Work

1:02:591:02:59

THEY CHANT "Kiss". There you go. We

absolutely loved that dance, and

1:02:591:03:06

what I adore is you said this is the

best week you have had.

This is my

1:03:061:03:10

favourite week, doing a bid of Fred

and Ginger with Kevin, a bit of

1:03:101:03:15

romance, it was a delight.

The

scores are in.

1:03:151:03:25

The judges have their scores.

1:03:251:03:35

That is all right. We are going to

win the paso doble-athon. Well done.

1:03:371:03:51

If you think Susan and Kevin deserve

a place in next week's quarterfinal,

1:03:541:03:57

then please make sure

they get your vote.

1:03:571:03:59

All the details you need

are on screen now and voting

1:03:591:04:01

will open after the paso-dobla-thon.

1:04:011:04:02

Right, off you go.

1:04:021:04:04

You have about four

minutes to get ready.

1:04:041:04:05

While Susan and Kevin get changed,

let's see how the leaderboard looks.

1:04:051:04:08

But with a maximum of seven extra

marks up for grabs tonight,

1:04:081:04:11

all of that could change.

1:04:111:04:16

Over the years we've had

a waltzathon, a quickstep-athon,

1:04:161:04:19

even a cha cha challenge

but never a paso-dobla-thon.

1:04:191:04:22

So what does it mean?

1:04:221:04:25

How does it work?

1:04:251:04:26

And here's the big one,

should chorizo ever be

1:04:261:04:28

allowed in a paella?

1:04:281:04:29

To answer at least two of those

questions, here's Shirley.

1:04:291:04:36

This is the paso doble-athon. The

chance to see all seven couples

1:04:391:04:44

dancing at the same time on the

Strictly dance floor. So how will it

1:04:441:04:50

work? The couples will draw their

starting positions on the floor out

1:04:501:04:54

of a hat. So everything is fair and

square. Rule one. All couples must

1:04:541:05:00

remain on the floor and dance for

the entire duration of the song.

1:05:001:05:04

Rule two. Lifts are not allowed. Any

couple seen to be doing a lift will

1:05:041:05:12

be automatically disqualified. You

have been warned. Rule three. It is

1:05:121:05:19

really important that couples

respect the direction of the dance.

1:05:191:05:22

That means travelling in an

anticlockwise direction, and they

1:05:221:05:27

should also by a wear of the other

couples' positions. No bumping into

1:05:271:05:31

each other.

And finally. Capes are optional. So

1:05:311:05:40

what will we be looking for? As

judges we want to see proper paso

1:05:401:05:44

doble technique. This means strong

leg and foot action. Strong

1:05:441:05:49

charactererisation of the dance.

Beautiful floor craft and don't

1:05:491:05:53

forget to shape your body.

So how will the couples be scored?

1:05:531:05:59

The first placed couple will receive

a score of seven. Amazing. The

1:05:591:06:05

seventh placed couple will receive a

score of one. Oh dear. The paso

1:06:051:06:11

doble-athon scores will be combined

with the scores from the couple's

1:06:111:06:15

individual dances, to create a new

total score, which could truly

1:06:151:06:20

change the look on the leaderboard.

Let's do this. Ole.

1:06:201:06:28

Thank you very much Shirley. So, to

recap whoever comes first in the

1:06:281:06:32

paso doble-athon will get an extra

seven marks, whoever comes second

1:06:321:06:36

will get six and so on and the

bottom couple will receive the one

1:06:361:06:39

extra mark.

1:06:391:06:45

Shirley, with so many

people on the floor,

1:06:451:06:47

what can they do to stand out?

1:06:471:06:50

Well each couple to stand out, they

have to listen to the music and they

1:06:501:06:54

will dance to an epic piece of

music, today, it has many different

1:06:541:07:00

rhythm, and also some really crash

highlights, so when you hear that

1:07:001:07:04

bang you should see everybody stop,

twice there is a first highlight and

1:07:041:07:07

a second one. So they have to really

get in tune and they have to avoid

1:07:071:07:12

each other. Put your elbows out,

whatever you do don't stop because

1:07:121:07:17

the music is phrased so good luck to

all of them. Quite difficult.

1:07:171:07:25

Hello!

1:07:251:07:26

Hello!

1:07:261:07:27

Thank you, judges.

1:07:271:07:28

That noise means the wait

is finally over and it's time

1:07:281:07:31

for the paso-dobla-thon to commence.

1:07:311:07:32

1:10:201:10:24

What a sight to behold!

1:10:241:10:27

Let's see what the judges thought.

1:10:271:10:29

Bruno, our first ever

paso-dobla-thon.

1:10:291:10:30

What did you make of it?

1:10:301:10:40

Oh, a stampeding power, more than

the bull run. It has much flavour of

1:10:401:10:45

Spain as the most delicious paellla.

At times there was a bit of a jam

1:10:451:10:51

here and there but I think

considering you have nerve done this

1:10:511:10:56

before, managing the floor, not

having any accidents, you did all a

1:10:561:11:00

great job.

Well done.

APPLAUSE

1:11:001:11:04

I think he liked it.

1:11:041:11:06

APPLAUSE I think he liked it.

1:11:061:11:07

So, there is an extra seven marks up

for grabs for the winning couple.

1:11:071:11:13

This could turn the leader

board on its head.

1:11:131:11:15

Shirley, starting with seventh

place, please reveal the results

1:11:151:11:18

of the paso-dobla-thon.

1:11:181:11:18

That the most exciting thing I have

seen, it was amazing.

Kevin who finished last and receive

just one extra mark, but they were

After the drama of Blackpool only seven couples return to the Strictly studio as the battle for the glitterball trophy continues. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman host, as the couples dance twice in the live show.

In a Strictly first, after the couples have performed their own routine, all seven will return to the floor to compete in the Pasodoblathon. Who can dance the best Paso Doble and give themselves the chance to win extra points? It could turn the leaderboard on its head and improve their chances of getting through to the quarter-finals.
