Into the night. This week they're fighting for a place in Strictly's

0:00:330:00:39

Wembley team and they're not holding back. Music maestro.

0:00:390:00:48

I think I'm going to throw up. here to save the day. Get ready,

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:00:580:01:41

Live from Television Centre, please welcome your hosts, Bruce Forsyth

0:01:420:01:51
0:01:520:02:00

APPLAUSE Oh, I like this. Beautiful. Thank

0:02:000:02:10
0:02:100:02:11

you so much. If you're stopping sit down. Oh, good they're stopping.

0:02:110:02:15

Right good evening, ladies, gentlemen and children. Welcome to

0:02:150:02:20

Strictly Come Dancing. It's nice to see you, to see you... Nice! Have

0:02:200:02:26

you had a good week? I've had a busy week. Promoting my album. I

0:02:260:02:28

shouldn't have said that, never mind!

0:02:280:02:33

LAUGHTER I've been on lots of show that's

0:02:330:02:37

week. I was on The One Show with Alex. I was on the Chris Evans

0:02:370:02:42

breakfast show. We had a lot of fun. I love that man. There's one

0:02:420:02:47

programme I will not be doing. programme's that? How to look good

0:02:470:02:52

naked. APPLAUSE

0:02:530:03:02
0:03:030:03:06

No. If you're watching Gok Wan... I'm sorry, girlfriend, the answer's

0:03:060:03:16
0:03:160:03:16

no! There we are. APPLAUSE

0:03:160:03:21

Last week, Luini's exit sent shock waves through -- lulu's exit sent

0:03:210:03:26

shock waves through the ballroom. It's going to be a big one next

0:03:260:03:31

week. All of our couple will be dancing in front of more than 6,000

0:03:310:03:36

people at Wembley Arena. That's right.

0:03:360:03:44

It is the big one. I like the woo, that was good. We're loving the woo.

0:03:440:03:48

Just the thought of Wembley brings plenty of pre-match nerves. Which

0:03:480:03:53

of our remaining stars can handle the pressure. Shall we find out?

0:03:530:04:03
0:04:030:04:03

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:04:030:05:00

certainly will, my darling, let's Much excitement in the studio

0:05:000:05:06

tonight. There they all are. CHEERING

0:05:060:05:12

They're up for it this lot. somebody else come on? While I've

0:05:120:05:16

got you all together, I'm sure you'd like to welcome back Len!

0:05:160:05:25

APPLAUSE Welcome back Len. Thank you. Which

0:05:250:05:29

of course, means Craig will no longer be head judge.

0:05:290:05:36

CHEERING Do you know, I think that's the

0:05:360:05:41

first time you've ever got a cheer. So enjoy it, wallow in it.

0:05:410:05:44

Have a wallow. The eagle eyed amongst you will

0:05:440:05:49

have noticed that Holly has a new partner in Brendan.

0:05:490:05:54

Bit more about that later on. For now, it's business as usual as our

0:05:540:05:59

stars will be performing, the judges scoring and the couples

0:05:590:06:02

ranked on the leaderboard. scores will be combined with your

0:06:020:06:06

votes and sadly, one couple's Wembley dreams will fade. That's

0:06:060:06:09

right. If you're a digital viewer, press the red button for live

0:06:090:06:12

commentary. We've got Karen Hardy and her host with the most is West

0:06:120:06:19

End megastar, Michael Ball. Good luck to you both.

0:06:190:06:22

Nice to have Michael. All right then, let's get down to business.

0:06:220:06:29

Our first couple is Alex Jones and her partner, James.

0:06:290:06:35

Where are they? Over there. Good luck. Right now, because of all

0:06:350:06:41

their dance training and presenting The One Show, Alex is starting to

0:06:410:06:45

feel very tired, which is only natural. She wanted an afternoon

0:06:450:06:51

nap today and said "Bruce, will you come to my room and sing me a

0:06:510:06:55

lullaby?" I said "What makes you think my singing will send you to

0:06:550:07:02

sleep?" Shut up! Don't seat joke before I get there. She said "It

0:07:020:07:05

worked with the audience last week." They didn't go to sleep,

0:07:050:07:10

Alex! They didn't. They did not go to sleep. They were

0:07:100:07:16

in a, they were in a state of utter bliss. And you can't prove

0:07:160:07:26

otherwise. Right, here they are in training. Good luck to you all.

0:07:260:07:36
0:07:360:07:38

It all started off swimmingly and then, da da da, the net of the

0:07:380:07:43

dress got caught in my heel. carried on like a trooper.

0:07:430:07:47

Admittedly there were a few steps which aren't exactly as I had

0:07:470:07:51

choreographed. I actually didn't mind the end of our routine,

0:07:520:07:55

because I think we'd done so well to get to that point. I loved that

0:07:550:08:03

part. Extra point. We fell over live on the television. This week,

0:08:030:08:08

we're dancing the jive. Quite fast, isn't it? Can't keep up with me.

0:08:080:08:14

can. Can't. Can. I think we could market this into a DVD. Jive away

0:08:140:08:19

your jelly. We're starting the DVD now. James thinks he's fitter than

0:08:190:08:24

me. He should be, he is a professional dancer, but we'll see.

0:08:240:08:28

# Let's get physical # I want to get physical

0:08:280:08:33

# Let's get into physical # Let me hear your body talk #

0:08:330:08:43
0:08:430:08:47

Here we go! Like dancing with a 64- year-old honestly. I'll push myself

0:08:470:08:57
0:08:570:09:04

till I collapse. Dancing the jive, Alex Jones and

0:09:040:09:14
0:09:140:09:14

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:09:140:11:05

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE What about this! Give her the doll back. You

0:11:050:11:10

were born to dance. You're really coming on. Whilst you get your

0:11:100:11:15

breath back, it's a good time to welcome our fabulous singers, Dave

0:11:150:11:20

Arch and his wonderful orchestra. APPLAUSE

0:11:200:11:26

Not forgetting our judges! APPLAUSE

0:11:260:11:31

If you've just switched on and thought Jennifer grey is looking a

0:11:310:11:36

bit rough this week, she's not, it's just that Len's back. I can

0:11:360:11:40

honestly say, Len, it wasn't the same without you. Thank you.

0:11:400:11:49

APPLAUSE Let's all be honest. It was better.

0:11:490:11:56

But not the same, you see. What do you think of this first offering?

0:11:560:12:01

When the doll started I thought, here we go. But no you blossomed.

0:12:010:12:07

You busted out all over the place. OK, the kicks could have been a bit

0:12:070:12:11

sharper. You missed one of the little passes, but it was so full

0:12:110:12:19

of verve and gusto, I thought it was terrific. Well done.

0:12:190:12:24

You're doing wonders with this girl, I tell you. Alesha, what about you?

0:12:240:12:27

Your energy is fantastic. You were going for it. Your confidence is

0:12:270:12:31

growing. I can feel that. You need to refine some of your tests. Tiny

0:12:310:12:36

things, point your toes, finish off your moves. Other than that an

0:12:360:12:46
0:12:460:12:47

incredible opening to the show. You were a joy to watch. Bruno? Oh, yes.

0:12:470:12:53

Bring on the fun Alex. You had the enthusiasm of a manic Cheerleader,

0:12:530:12:57

backing the right side. You went for it bright, lively, the timing

0:12:570:13:02

was G you missed the pass and went on the wrong foot. Yes you have to

0:13:020:13:09

flick correctly. I'm telling you, I had so much fun with you.

0:13:090:13:15

How about you, Craig? That effigy I have to say is remarkable likeness

0:13:150:13:25

of James. It is! Getting on with the performance itself was

0:13:250:13:28

extremely confident, which was brilliant. There is no real

0:13:280:13:34

accuracy or precision in the steps and by pointing your feet on the

0:13:340:13:39

kicks that would have helped delineate the line. Fair comment,

0:13:390:13:49

but we loved you. Thank you, Bruce. Off you go.

0:13:490:13:57

Yes! Come on. Alesha said an incredible opening to the show. She

0:13:570:14:01

was right. Rewind six years ago, to the start of this, did you think

0:14:010:14:06

you'd handle the pressure of this? James has done an incredible job.

0:14:060:14:11

Six weeks ago I'm sorry. I knew what you meant. I didn't think I

0:14:110:14:18

would be able to. Nor did I. It was nice to give it a good go. Len said

0:14:180:14:21

you blossomed and were full of gusto. Looked like you enjoyed

0:14:210:14:27

every second of that. We enjoyed this week. It's been a laugh.

0:14:270:14:31

the doll? Hard to tell them apart. It's got more hair than me. Scores

0:14:310:14:41
0:14:410:14:58

31 out of 40, congratulations. Really strong start. Job down their

0:14:580:15:04

number and call later on if you want to see Alex dance at Wembley

0:15:040:15:11

The couples with the lowest combined scores will be leaving the

0:15:110:15:15

competition. If you want to go to Wembley, clap your hands. They're

0:15:150:15:21

up for it. Now our next couple Robbie Savage

0:15:210:15:26

and his partner, Ola. APPLAUSE

0:15:260:15:32

Popular couple. Robbie is doing the American smooth and he's been

0:15:320:15:36

wondering what sort of tails to wear. I said "You mean white tails

0:15:360:15:43

or black tails?" He said no, "Pig tails or ponytails."

0:15:430:15:48

APPLAUSE I think he was having a bad hair

0:15:480:15:54

day. I thought that bit was funny, any way. Here they are in training,

0:15:540:16:04
0:16:040:16:04

if you're going to be like that. I loved the dance. I love it. There

0:16:040:16:09

was a tear in my eye at the end so I can't understand the comments.

0:16:090:16:13

didn't really feel the connection. I would have liked to see that more.

0:16:130:16:18

Devoid of any emotion. Why just negative comments? Robbie is always

0:16:180:16:23

concentrating on the negative. He can't hear the positives. There's a

0:16:230:16:29

lot of positives there. It was your most correct performance to date.

0:16:290:16:32

I made my mum and wife cry on Saturday night. That's all that

0:16:320:16:38

counts. The dream of getting to Wembley reminds me so much of when

0:16:380:16:44

I was a kid. Savage beats one, a nutmeg. He's going to light up

0:16:440:16:54
0:16:540:16:55

Wembley. Oh! Robbie? Robbie... are you? I'm your Fairy Godmother.

0:16:550:17:01

I'm here to make your dreams come true. If you stop stealing mummy's

0:17:010:17:04

hair straighters in and listen to everything your teacher says, you

0:17:040:17:08

will make it to Wembley. Do you think I could score the winner in

0:17:080:17:13

the FA Cup final? I mean you can dance at Wembley. You've got what

0:17:130:17:21

it takes. Savage takes to the floor, the

0:17:210:17:28

scores are in. It's a ten off Len. It's a ten from Alesha. A ten off

0:17:280:17:37

Bruno. A ten off Craig - yes! Dancing the American smooth, Robbie

0:17:370:17:47
0:17:470:17:47

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:17:470:19:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE What about this pair? Wonderful. That was so

0:19:220:19:28

beautiful. What a team. You're quite a team now. Alesha, what did

0:19:280:19:33

you think? You really are a ballroom boy. Great use of steps.

0:19:330:19:36

Great lifts, although they were a little erratic at times. You know

0:19:360:19:39

what, you're continuing the success of last week. You're constantly

0:19:390:19:45

moving in the right direction. Great job. All because of Ola. I

0:19:450:19:50

blame Ola. Right now then Bruno? You are

0:19:500:19:55

really becoming a Smooth Operator. I like the variety of steps, the

0:19:550:20:00

way you went from slow to fast. Sometimes a bit rough still. But it

0:20:000:20:04

goes with the territory with Savage. I love the way you can sway both

0:20:050:20:12

ways. No! Because there were elements of Latin and ballroom

0:20:120:20:15

combined in this American smooth, which I see very rarely. No, it's

0:20:150:20:25

true, isn't it? Ola, it's true? Yes. You're right. Now then Craig?

0:20:250:20:31

thought you had beautiful arm placement in the running promenades.

0:20:320:20:35

I can see that you were working that beautifully. You have to be

0:20:350:20:40

aware of other moments that your arms are out in second because your

0:20:400:20:45

hands do this weird thing like this. So do watch that, my darling. I

0:20:460:20:50

agree a lot of mix of style, which was fantastic. Great control in the

0:20:500:20:57

lifts, brilliant. The step -touch moment was a bit awkward, I would

0:20:570:21:01

have eliminated that, having watched you do it. But the whole

0:21:010:21:11

routine was rather good. Wow, what happened? Len? Actually,

0:21:110:21:14

Robbie, when he was doing those strange fingers was looking at you

0:21:140:21:20

actually. LAUGHTER

0:21:200:21:24

I wondered where you were at first, I didn't know you were on the

0:21:240:21:27

naughty step. Once you got cracking, I tell you what, you're getting

0:21:270:21:33

better and better. Well done to you. Absolutely. We all love you. Off

0:21:330:21:43
0:21:430:21:48

you go and be proud. Look at that. Better and better.

0:21:480:21:54

Bruno's Smooth Operator. Even Craig said rather good. Wow. Ola was

0:21:540:21:58

fantastic. Fabulous choreography. We know you have strong

0:21:580:22:02

footballer's legs but those arms were made for lifting. My feet

0:22:020:22:06

weren't made for football, I wasn't very good at that. Playing at

0:22:060:22:10

Wembley next week would be amazing, for Ola as well. Were you worried

0:22:100:22:20
0:22:200:22:37

he was going to drop you. Yeah, no, 31 and a seven from Craig. You have

0:22:370:22:44

to be happy with that. Very happy. Thank you.

0:22:440:22:50

Call this number later in the show if you want to make Robbie's goal

0:22:500:22:55

of dancing at Wembley come true. We know how much that would mean.

0:22:550:22:58

Massively. Now the judges scores might not be enough to save your

0:22:580:23:04

favourites. Pick up the phone to do your bit for our boys and girls.

0:23:040:23:07

Now for our next couple, Audley Harrison and his partner, Natalie.

0:23:070:23:15

APPLAUSE Another couple that you all love, I

0:23:150:23:20

know. Audley is such a mountain of a man. I said, "I bet there's

0:23:200:23:24

nothing in this world that scares you." He said, "Well I'm not keen

0:23:240:23:29

on those four legged things with tails that swish round your

0:23:290:23:35

ankles." I said "You mean rats?" He said, "No, I mean horses." Isn't

0:23:350:23:43

that a stupid joke. That's stupid. Here they are in training.

0:23:430:23:49

Last Saturday was amazing. I just want you to push it more, take

0:23:490:23:52

ownership of the dance and feel confident leading Natalie around.

0:23:520:23:56

You're getting there. You should be proud. That feels fantastic, when

0:23:560:24:00

it mattered most we got a higher score and I danced to the best of

0:24:000:24:04

my ability. That's what you do when you're under pressure, you put in a

0:24:040:24:08

great performance. That is amazing. I was in the bottom two for the

0:24:080:24:12

third time. I said, you know what, I'm down but not out. There's still

0:24:120:24:17

a chance that I could stay in the show. That's how it panned out.

0:24:170:24:21

Surviving again... Audley and Natalie.

0:24:210:24:28

# I'm a survivor, keep on surviving. The cha-cha-cha is that Latin

0:24:280:24:36

flavour. This is where I've got to go for it. Red light. Focused,

0:24:360:24:40

ready to rumble. Come on, take charge, lead me. What I want Audley

0:24:400:24:44

to do this week is lead, lead me. That's so weak. He has to lead.

0:24:440:24:48

He's got no choice. We lead with our hands come on. Go.

0:24:480:24:54

competition is getting very touch. If you're not improving technically,

0:24:540:24:59

then why are you here? Amazing, again. This is a Latin dance.

0:24:590:25:03

Saturday night we're going to be ready to light up the dance floor.

0:25:030:25:11

Cha-cha-cha. It is hot in here, Dancing the cha-cha-cha, Audley

0:25:110:25:21
0:25:210:25:21

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:25:210:26:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Audley, you amaze me every week. A real bit of

0:26:590:27:05

rhythm there, for a big guy, you really move. Bruno? Audley, before

0:27:050:27:10

I speak, I really, really like you, you know, but... Cha-cha-cha,

0:27:110:27:17

timing, timing, timing, precision, precision, precision. There wasn't

0:27:170:27:21

hardly any. I mean, the National Rail on a bank holiday has better

0:27:210:27:25

timing. I know you're cool and relaxed and laid back. You know

0:27:250:27:29

you're a great personality, yes. But at this stage, you should give

0:27:290:27:35

us more impact on this Latin dances, you should hit it. Go for it,

0:27:350:27:43

sharper, cleaner, finish it. I do like you, though, I like you a lot.

0:27:430:27:50

Now then, Craig? I don't actually mean to be awful, but it was leaden,

0:27:500:27:58

heavy, laboured. It was torpid and not your finest hour.

0:27:580:28:02

There wasn't yours either. Len, what did you think? I've got the

0:28:020:28:08

feeling the only way you're going to Wembley is on the Jubilee Line.

0:28:080:28:16

Oh, well. Hold your horses... Listen, they're actually wrong,

0:28:160:28:24

your timing was very, very good. You never went off the time. You

0:28:240:28:28

had rhythm. It wasn't your best dance, but you did your best. I

0:28:280:28:32

think that's very important that everyone comes out and gives it

0:28:320:28:37

their best shot and that you did. Yes, taking that into consideration,

0:28:370:28:41

the size of the man wha. About you Alesha? It's harsh what the judges

0:28:410:28:46

are saying, but some of it is true. This dance exposed you. I know

0:28:460:28:50

you're working hard and trying, I mend you for that. I don't think

0:28:500:28:54

this particular dance suited you. Difficult dance, but don't listen

0:28:540:29:03

to them. You're my favourite. APPLAUSE

0:29:030:29:13
0:29:130:29:21

Come on up here. You bring the ballroom fight every week. Go on...

0:29:210:29:25

You always manage to do the best performance on the night,

0:29:250:29:30

congratulations for that. comments were harsh. Is it the

0:29:300:29:40

Jubilee Line? Or the Met row poll tan? -- metropolitan. The ballroom

0:29:400:29:46

hold is more suited to me. I gave it my best shot. I didn't get the

0:29:460:29:50

routine wrong, but punching it, it was hard to get it. I gave it my

0:29:500:30:00
0:30:000:30:15

best shot. That's what we love Where's Craig going with three says

0:30:160:30:19

Audley. He'll be running out of the building by the time you get hold

0:30:190:30:24

of him. Make a note of this number, and call later if you want Audley

0:30:240:30:28

to step into the arena for another bout of dancing next week. Are you

0:30:280:30:32

up for that? Definitely, 100%. Hopefully ballroom as well. Yeah,

0:30:320:30:36

American smooth. All of our stars will need your

0:30:360:30:41

votes. Now for our next couple, Harry Judd

0:30:410:30:45

and his partner... CHEERING

0:30:450:30:51

He's got a partner, Aliona! Can't stop it.

0:30:510:30:56

Very popular man. And getting more popular every week. Now this week

0:30:560:31:03

one of his fans got into his dressing room, puckered up and left

0:31:030:31:09

a great big lipstick mark on his mirror. And if you do it again,

0:31:090:31:11

Bruno... LAUGHTER

0:31:110:31:17

You're going to be in trouble. I'm warning you. OK, here they are in

0:31:170:31:24

training. On last week's show, I was so happy

0:31:240:31:27

with my performance, because I'd had such a stressful week. It built

0:31:270:31:32

up to that one moment. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. I think

0:31:320:31:37

you're having fun. But I want you to kick it up a notch, really let

0:31:370:31:41

go. The competition is getting harder and harder. I have to, each

0:31:410:31:48

week, make it my goal to up my game. This week is the Argentine tango.

0:31:480:31:55

Things were going smoothly until Tom and Danny dts came in dressed

0:31:550:31:59

as gauchos. We have come to assist you with your Argentine tango.

0:31:590:32:04

didn't really help. In fact, they.opposite. Show us what you've

0:32:040:32:13

got. I feel sorry for her. We've doing some practise. I think we

0:32:130:32:19

could do better. Music maestro. think we intimidated him a bit.

0:32:190:32:27

really pulled it out of the bag. It's like black belt in karate. You

0:32:270:32:35

only get a black tache when you have mastered the dance. McFab-U-

0:32:350:32:41

lus. Don't worry if you can't get up to that standard by Saturday.

0:32:410:32:46

Don't expect to be as good as you guys, but thanks for the help. I'll

0:32:460:32:51

be thinking of Tom and Danny on Saturday night? No I won't.

0:32:510:32:57

No help whatsoever. Dancing the Argentine tango, Harry Judd and

0:33:070:33:07

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:33:070:34:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Our first standing ovation. Oh, yes. They are

0:34:440:34:53
0:34:540:34:56

wild about Harry. Look at this! That says it all. What can I say?

0:34:560:35:00

You're working so well together and all this, oh, I tell you, it was

0:35:000:35:06

beautiful. OK Craig, what did you think? It had authority, dominance,

0:35:060:35:11

command, control. It was filth and I loved it!

0:35:110:35:20

APPLAUSE Craig, do you want one of your pill

0:35:200:35:26

snlz I've had one, darling. pink one. Right OK. I do understand

0:35:260:35:29

Craig and I understand the audience standing and everything else,

0:35:290:35:36

because it was a very, very clever routine. But, for me, where was the

0:35:360:35:45

intensity of it? I want to be... Look I know, the steps were great.

0:35:450:35:51

But it's all about the mood of being transported to a club in

0:35:510:35:56

Buenos Aries. I didn't feel that. I felt it was placed, clinical,

0:35:560:36:06
0:36:060:36:08

neat... There was no passion you silly little thing.

0:36:080:36:18

Wash your mouth out. I do apoll -- I do apologise to all and sun dri.

0:36:180:36:24

Sorry. I think Len is jet lagged. It was intense, strong, sexy,

0:36:240:36:28

passionate, incredible control. I've said to you before, you hold

0:36:280:36:31

your body so well, and that's the strength of body you needed for

0:36:320:36:41

that dance. You delivered it. Great job.

0:36:410:36:48

I'll tell you what it was, it was moodier than a thunder storm in the

0:36:480:36:52

pampas. I'm telling you that! It was strong, manly, with a mean

0:36:520:36:57

streak, which is exactly what the Argentine tango should be about.

0:36:570:37:02

You're hooks were absolutely, the ganch yoz is what they are called,

0:37:020:37:05

perfect. You've never been stronger. You've never been more attractive.

0:37:050:37:13

APPLAUSE I should get off quick. Guard him.

0:37:130:37:23
0:37:230:37:28

Away you go. What about that, that was McFab-u-

0:37:280:37:33

lus. Craig loved it. Bruno loved it even more. Craig and Len arguing

0:37:330:37:39

over you. What's that like? It's fun to watch actually. I mean, as I

0:37:400:37:43

always say everyone's entitled to their opinion. Tonight I felt the

0:37:430:37:47

passion. I really enjoyed that. Probably my favourite so far.

0:37:470:37:53

audience loved it. You had a standing ovation. Everyone's

0:37:530:37:56

entight told their own opinion, I respect Len's opinion. But I am

0:37:560:38:00

saying I did enjoy that. Three huge lifts. Good to see you putting

0:38:010:38:03

those guns to good use, Aliona. Good work.

0:38:030:38:13
0:38:130:38:37

It's raining tens! Congratulations. 37, two tens, your highest score.

0:38:370:38:43

How does that feel? Amazing. Best moment by far. What do you think?

0:38:430:38:49

The number to call later if you want our Harry to sizzle on the

0:38:490:38:53

dance floor next Saturday. Next week, eight of our couples will

0:38:530:38:56

dance at Wembley Arena. No-one wants to be left behind on the

0:38:560:39:03

bench. Next up is Jason and his partner

0:39:030:39:09

Kristina. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE I know you've

0:39:090:39:13

been looking forward to them. Right, they're doing the Viennese waltz. I

0:39:130:39:17

said to Jason, "You'll be the second most famous Australian ever

0:39:170:39:24

to do the Viennese waltz." He asked who was the most famous. I said

0:39:250:39:31

"Waltzing Matilda." Don't laugh. I met her! In fact, I danced with her.

0:39:310:39:34

It was like dancing with an Australian rugby player with a

0:39:340:39:41

frock on. Any way, talk about give us a twirl, here they are in

0:39:410:39:48

training. I have to say the rumba I loved.

0:39:480:39:54

There were -- was great stuff in that routine. I got a little bored.

0:39:540:40:03

It waents there. -- It wasn't there. You win some, you lose some. I'm an

0:40:030:40:10

Aussie. You fight back. Jason. Kristina, I'm ready for dancing.

0:40:100:40:12

The Viennese waltz is far more difficult than I thought. I can see

0:40:130:40:20

you going argh. No, I'm not. Swins will be a challenge. Quicker, no.

0:40:200:40:23

I've lost you. Kristina has arranged something slightly strange

0:40:230:40:28

in order to sort out my diziness. What is that? Come on Jason, enjoy

0:40:280:40:32

the ride. I'm feeling like I'm trapped in a thing that's round and

0:40:320:40:37

it's going to spin me right round, baby, right round. Do you want to

0:40:370:40:44

go faster? Kristina, I think I'm going to throw up. It was good fun.

0:40:440:40:48

Come on now, Jason. I am loving Strictly. I'm having such a great

0:40:480:40:53

time. As long as my friends and family are enjoying watching me,

0:40:530:41:01

I'm happy. I feel great. Jason, I've been watching you on the show

0:41:010:41:05

and you look every bit as good as you did 23 years ago. You're doing

0:41:050:41:15
0:41:150:41:19

fantastically well. Keep it up and Dancing the Viennese waltz, Jason

0:41:190:41:29
0:41:290:41:29

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:41:290:43:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Lovely, lovely. Jason, Kristina, a lovely

0:43:090:43:15

Viennese waltz. I tell you, Len start us off. Lovely foot work,

0:43:150:43:19

lyrical movement. You attempted the fleckerl, a difficult step, that

0:43:190:43:23

standing thing. You did that pretty good. I liked it a lot. I'm telling

0:43:230:43:28

you, it was very, very good. Well done.

0:43:280:43:34

All right then. Alesha, what did you think? A very dramatic Viennese

0:43:340:43:37

waltz. Great movement around the floor and I love the connection

0:43:370:43:41

between you both. You really danced together tonight. I love the fight

0:43:410:43:48

in you, Jason. Good job. OK Bruno? That had such drive. You were back

0:43:480:43:55

in the zone tonight, Jason. On it all the way through. You used some

0:43:550:43:59

very intricate choreography to your advantage, everything had a meaning.

0:43:590:44:04

You never, never lost of style. Well done.

0:44:040:44:10

There you are. Can't argue with that. Now then, Craig finish us off.

0:44:100:44:15

This dance could be a ten, but it's not because your arms are letting

0:44:150:44:20

you down. You must work on them. The hands are still flat. The arms

0:44:200:44:24

are wooden. You've got to extend from the shoulder to the elbow,

0:44:240:44:27

through to the wrist and then to the end of the fingers. You have to

0:44:270:44:31

have shaping. Without that, it's just going to look like it is and

0:44:310:44:40

remain a poor ballroom. It's a shame.

0:44:400:44:45

It was amazing. You're picking on his thumb. It's not perfect,

0:44:450:44:55
0:44:550:44:56

darling. Just A Minute, children, children! CHILDREN!

0:44:560:45:01

You said you're working on that. You're conscious of it. You're

0:45:010:45:04

working on it. It's all going so well. We loved it.

0:45:040:45:14
0:45:140:45:21

It's the spin doctor. Back in the zone said Bruno. Looks like you've

0:45:210:45:25

got your mojo back. It felt like it was there. It felt like the

0:45:250:45:29

character was there. I tried to float it and make it a lot softer

0:45:290:45:32

than the dress run today. You know, sometimes it works and sometimes it

0:45:320:45:36

doesn't. I think that's the nature of the competition. I think it

0:45:360:45:38

worked. What do you think? APPLAUSE

0:45:380:45:46

We try our best. As a seasoned performer, you are must relish the

0:45:460:45:51

thought of Wembley. It's massive. I'm grateful we've got this far.

0:45:510:45:54

There's such an incredible amount of talent here. True.

0:45:540:45:58

LAUGHTER There is, even James is looking

0:45:580:46:03

good tonight. Wembley is a massive thing. Thanks to the British public

0:46:030:46:07

for voting for us and getting us that far. That's the most important

0:46:070:46:17
0:46:170:46:37

34! Was there a discrepancy in the score there's? Just waiting to hear,

0:46:370:46:42

we'll come back to you. Write down this number if Jason and Kristina

0:46:420:46:49

get your vote, and call later if you want our waltzing aud -- Aussie

0:46:490:46:54

to say "Hello Wembley". I am sure it will be something special.

0:46:540:46:58

get there, it will be amazing. week, it is a Strictly first. We're

0:46:580:47:03

moving to Wembley Arena. Yeah baby. Where our remaining stars have the

0:47:030:47:09

pleasure of dancing live in front of more than 6,000 people. And

0:47:090:47:15

they'll be following in the glitzy footsteps of legendary Wembley

0:47:150:47:22

performers and one in particular springs to mind.

0:47:220:47:26

They await the appearance now of a professional entertainer, Bruce

0:47:260:47:33

Forsyth. He's been entertaining us for years. The man is a legend.

0:47:340:47:38

Shouldn't he get his nighthood by now? True.

0:47:380:47:48
0:47:480:47:50

Get ready for a Savage special. Twinkle toes.

0:47:500:47:56

COMMENTATOR: Right in the corner. Didn't he do well.

0:47:560:48:01

Who's that over there? Apparently some sort of entertainment legend

0:48:010:48:08

over here. Really, he's no Rolf Harris.

0:48:080:48:13

Nice one, Brucie. Nice one son. COMMENTATOR: Nice one Brucie, is

0:48:130:48:21

the cry. Nice to see you, to see you... NICE! That Catchphrase will

0:48:210:48:26

never catch on. Anybody here from Newcastle? Anybody here from

0:48:260:48:33

Liverpool? What's Brucie doing here? He's probably here promoting

0:48:330:48:37

his Wembley show next week. What that generation game? Nah,

0:48:370:48:42

something to do with dancing. that dancing show on prime time BBC

0:48:420:48:46

One on Saturday night. Which celebrity would sign up for that?

0:48:460:48:50

Nice one Brucie, let's have another one.

0:48:500:48:56

Isn't that great! Just to clarify, that was a nine from Bruno, giving

0:48:560:49:03

Jason and Kristina an overall total of 35. Even better. What about that.

0:49:030:49:08

I want to see my bit at Wembley again.

0:49:080:49:11

Any way, remember, any way, didn't I do well at that?

0:49:110:49:18

APPLAUSE Just A Minute, didn't I look young!

0:49:180:49:24

And virile and strong. All right, all right. Our next couple tonight

0:49:240:49:26

is Chelsee Healey and her partner, Pasha.

0:49:260:49:35

APPLAUSE And they are doing the foxtrot. It

0:49:350:49:40

mean that's Chelsee has to be a lady. She does a wonderful job.

0:49:400:49:44

When I saw her this afternoon she was holding her little finger out

0:49:440:49:50

at exactly the right angle while she was drinking a pint of stout.

0:49:500:49:55

In one go. What a little lady, I mean, ladette. Any way, here they

0:49:560:50:03

are in training. Since the first week, I've just

0:50:030:50:07

realised how much work I've got to put in to pull off a dance on the

0:50:070:50:12

night. You keep dancing like that and nobody's going to put you in

0:50:120:50:19

the corner. Nine! To get all nines was a brilliant feeling. This

0:50:190:50:23

foxtrot is fast, precise and above all, sophisticated. Everything that

0:50:230:50:31

I'm not. Swan wings instead of chicken wings. Chelsee naturally

0:50:310:50:36

bursts into a funky dance and when she laughs, she snorts a little bit.

0:50:360:50:45

She's a little bit like Eliza Doolittle. We're trying to turn her

0:50:450:50:52

into a real lady. It's posh in here. Repeat after me. The rain in Spain

0:50:520:50:57

stays mainly on the plain. The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain.

0:50:570:51:07
0:51:070:51:14

Wonderful. Oh, brilliant. I'm still starving. Excuse me there young man,

0:51:140:51:23

do you have any pie and mash? afraid not Madam. That's more like

0:51:230:51:33

it. Come on Paddy Ashdown, tuck in. Dancing the foxtrot, Chelsee Healey

0:51:330:51:43
0:51:430:51:43

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:51:430:53:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Lovely, Chelsee. That was beautiful. What a

0:53:220:53:26

lovely long slide you did there, did you have a cushion underneath?

0:53:260:53:32

No, but I've hurt my back. Only joking. Don't joke like that dear.

0:53:320:53:36

Sorry. Alesha? Elegant, graceful. Wonderful arm placement as usual

0:53:360:53:40

and great control. You're equally as strong in ballroom dancing as

0:53:400:53:45

you are in Latin. That makes you the one to beat. Tonight, you truly

0:53:450:53:51

are a lady. Absolutely stunning. There you go! The grace you have

0:53:510:53:58

abeautiful. Bruno? Oh, yes, my fair Chelsee. You are a gorgeous little

0:53:580:54:02

thing. And so sophisticated tonight. In your arms particularly. It

0:54:020:54:07

really was like the soft wings of a dove. I adore you. You were

0:54:070:54:15

gorgeous. Right how about you Craig? You are

0:54:150:54:19

hopping on that last turn a bit, because you lost your centre, sadly,

0:54:190:54:25

but you're starting to tick all my boxes. Well done.

0:54:250:54:32

And your boxs are very hard to tick. They are indeed. Len? Well, you

0:54:320:54:35

will also tick all my boxes if you work on your foot work a little bit

0:54:350:54:41

more and try to just get the correct foot work. But I love

0:54:410:54:44

watching you. I don't expect you to be able to dance with this much

0:54:440:54:52

ease and elegance. Well done. Just A Minute. I'm giving you

0:54:520:54:57

permission to go and have another pint of stout. Yes! Off you go.

0:54:570:55:07
0:55:070:55:14

Pasha, well done. Sophisticated, have you ever been

0:55:140:55:19

called that before? Never, no. you still in character? By gosh, I

0:55:190:55:26

am. By gosh, you've changed. I've definitely not changed. From party

0:55:260:55:30

girl to foxtrot lady. Where do you hide all that lovely energy. It's

0:55:300:55:40
0:55:400:55:59

contained tonight. She's a Princess Possibly the best reaction to a ten

0:55:590:56:03

we've ever had. Amazing, congratulations. Happy with that,

0:56:030:56:08

safe to say. I am, very happy. nine from Craig, whoa, ticking his

0:56:080:56:16

boxles. The number to ring later on if you want our northern light to

0:56:160:56:19

brighten up Wembley Arena next week. Sound good? Very, very, very, very

0:56:190:56:24

good. Still to come: Find out what

0:56:240:56:28

happens when Holly dances a rumba with new partner, Brendan.

0:56:280:56:33

Looking forward to that. Plus our Russell is rough and ready

0:56:330:56:43
0:56:430:56:43

with his American smooth. I can't Lots to come. Next tonight is Anita

0:56:430:56:48

Dobson and her partner, Robin. APPLAUSE

0:56:480:56:54

She's lovely that Anita. And do you know, at 62, Anita is the oldest

0:56:540:56:58

person left in this competition. I said to her, "What's it like

0:56:580:57:03

spending so much time with young people half your age?" He said,

0:57:030:57:08

"You should know. You're doing it now." Wasn't that hurtful? Why did

0:57:080:57:15

she turn on me. Here they are in training.

0:57:150:57:21

Last Saturday's show, I loved it. It was absolutely skit rating. --

0:57:210:57:25

exhilirating. Now I see why you're a national treasure. I didn't

0:57:250:57:32

realise I'd become one. I hope to be a global treasure one day. We're

0:57:320:57:36

doing the Argentine tango, which is quite scary. I hate this bit.

0:57:360:57:41

hate this. We need seduction, sensuality, intensity, which is

0:57:410:57:46

going to be quite difficult because we're always about fun. We have

0:57:460:57:50

trouble being serious and looking at each other. No more giggles this

0:57:500:57:54

week. The laughter police are here. No smiling. It's all about the

0:57:540:58:00

seriousness of the dance. So Anita, this is a test. There'll be no

0:58:000:58:10
0:58:100:58:19

smiling in this room, OK? Tickle, No smiling.

0:58:190:58:28

# Where you from, you sexy thing? # # We will, we will rock you #

0:58:280:58:30

No laughing. LAUGHTER

0:58:300:58:40
0:58:400:58:42

Now that is funny. Dancing the Argentine tango, Anita

0:58:420:58:52
0:58:520:58:52

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

0:58:521:00:24

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE I tell you what, what about that?! Look at

1:00:241:00:32

this. Anita, look! Enjoy all this. And

1:00:321:00:42
1:00:421:00:48

The story, don't tell me what the story was all about. It was there,

1:00:481:00:57

the drama. Well Bruno? Oohhh, Anita, unleashes her basic instinct. All

1:00:571:01:03

sexy mama, queen of drama, you can tango.

1:01:031:01:08

And all that kicking and you missed him every time. You were going for

1:01:081:01:13

it, but you missed. Craig? I didn't think you were entirely responding

1:01:131:01:16

to Robin's lead and that's what needs to happen in this dance.

1:01:161:01:20

There needs to be a lot more cross and throw away to every single

1:01:201:01:25

gauncho you do. I love the spinning you do. It's amazing. I thought the

1:01:251:01:32

routine was absolutely fantastic. Great choreography, but the drama

1:01:321:01:37

in the whole thing was electrifying. Len? It smouldered. You know what I

1:01:371:01:40

mean, I liked the feeling of the dance. I liked the little touch

1:01:401:01:46

that's came. Robin look as way, come back here, you. And for me,

1:01:461:01:49

that's what Argentine tango is about, it's about creating a mood

1:01:491:01:53

and an atmosphere. I felt you got that.

1:01:531:02:00

Yes, you certainly did. Alesha, were you moved? You totally drew me

1:02:001:02:03

into the story. And you look sensational. I just want to say

1:02:031:02:11

that. You still need to work on strengthening your body, overall I

1:02:111:02:15

loved the drama. The intensity and the mood you created, good job.

1:02:151:02:20

You are a revelation. Robin, well done with this fine lady. Off you

1:02:201:02:30
1:02:301:02:32

go. Be very proud. Yes, Anita, we salute you up here!

1:02:321:02:39

Yes indeed. Queen of drama, you sexa mama said Bruno. So much

1:02:391:02:42

Argentine attitude. The serious tango we have found a dance that

1:02:421:02:47

wipes the smile off your face. indeed. There it is, the Strictly

1:02:471:02:57
1:02:571:03:11

smile. We loved it. The scores are 33! That's a great score. The smile

1:03:111:03:17

is back in place. Call when lines open later if you want Anita and

1:03:171:03:22

her million dollar smile to light up the dance floor next Saturday.

1:03:341:03:38

for the next couple, Holly Valance and her partner, for this week,

1:03:381:03:42

Brendan Cole. CHEERING

1:03:421:03:50

Now, due to Artem's injury, which I'm sure you've all heard about,

1:03:501:03:54

Brendan has gallantly stepped in to take his place. It's been such an

1:03:541:03:58

eventful week, to say the least. Forget all the rumours, here's

1:03:581:04:06

exactly what happened. Last week, we almost didn't make it

1:04:071:04:10

on stage because Artem had been pretty seriously injured. He hurt

1:04:101:04:16

his back. I said to myself, all of that work will go to nothing if I'm

1:04:161:04:20

not going to perform that night. The doctor told me that if you

1:04:211:04:26

maintain the pain level, you can do it. I wasn't surprised by how well

1:04:261:04:31

he handled it I. I knew he would go and be all Russian about it and

1:04:311:04:37

dance all out. Things went fantastically. Second ain't bad.

1:04:371:04:41

Because of Artem's injury, I was a bit of a damsel in distress this

1:04:411:04:49

week. Oh, Artem. But luckily any knight in shining armour arrived.

1:04:491:04:55

Fear not Princess Holly. I'm here to save the day. Fancy coming and

1:04:551:05:02

dantsing with me? Brendan! Holly is adjusting OK to a new partner. It's

1:05:021:05:06

a weird situation. You get so close to your partner, then all of a

1:05:061:05:11

sudden, in comes the new guy. Brendan Cole's got my hand. Just

1:05:111:05:16

what you've always wanted. Artem is doing the choreography. Even though

1:05:161:05:21

I'm in the chair most of the time, I cannot just sit down. I should be

1:05:211:05:25

doing nothing, but I can't help it. This has been a really tough week,

1:05:251:05:32

but the show must go on and thanks to Brendan, it can.

1:05:321:05:42
1:05:421:05:42

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

1:05:421:07:21

Dancing the rumba, Holly Valance CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Well done

1:07:211:07:25

both of you. How about that. That was wonderful.

1:07:251:07:32

A wonderful mood. Craig, will you start us off? I thought we'd got

1:07:321:07:36

rid of you, Brendan. Actually, I'm quite pleased you're back, because

1:07:361:07:45

I am loving this new partnership. It's really, really good. Amazing.

1:07:451:07:49

Len? It was all very nice and precise. I would like you to get a

1:07:491:07:53

little bit more emotionally involved in the dances. You know,

1:07:531:07:59

it just lacked that. Just get a bit more togetherness going on. Alesha?

1:07:591:08:09
1:08:091:08:09

And look up. Not you. Considering you've had to change partners this

1:08:091:08:13

week, you have done exceptionally well. I cannot imagine that what

1:08:131:08:17

that must have felt like. Well done to you Brendan. All the basic steps

1:08:171:08:21

were there. I did feel the emotion. The only thing I would say, I think

1:08:211:08:25

there's so much more to come from you, and I look forward to seeing

1:08:251:08:30

You move beautifully. Your body's so sinnuous. You have sex within

1:08:301:08:37

you. Len is right, I could see more outward, but this routine was very,

1:08:371:08:45

very good. Very, very good. I did put myself forward. Away you go. It

1:08:451:08:55
1:08:551:09:01

was wonderful! Come on. We have Artem here. Were you proud

1:09:011:09:06

of Holly's performance? Absolutely, 100%. It was awesome.

1:09:061:09:09

professional partners for the price of one. Can't be bad. I a very

1:09:091:09:15

lucky girl. Craig is loving this new partnership. Really well done.

1:09:151:09:25
1:09:251:09:38

We wish you a speedy recovery. 34 out of 40. That's a top score.

1:09:381:09:42

Everyone else had nine weeks to get to know their partner. How many

1:09:421:09:47

days did you have? Five, four? cannot tell you how fantastic the

1:09:471:09:50

week has been. This girl is a gem. Well done Artem. That must have

1:09:501:09:56

been hard. Well done. Call later when phone lines open if you don't

1:09:571:10:00

want Holly to leave right now and you want her back for more next

1:10:001:10:07

week. One more performance to come. Have we saved the best till last?

1:10:071:10:11

OK, our final couple is Russell Grant and his partner, Flavia.

1:10:111:10:15

APPLAUSE There we are. Everybody loves this

1:10:151:10:23

man. Over the past few weeks, Russell has been told he needs to

1:10:231:10:28

be more macho. More masculine. I said "What dance are you doing

1:10:281:10:33

tonight?" He said, "The American smooth. That's macho and very

1:10:331:10:43
1:10:431:10:44

masculine. What song are you dancing to? He said, "I Am What I

1:10:441:10:52

Here they are in training. Going out there to sit on a horned bull

1:10:521:10:57

was just fantastic. It had all the ingredients of fun

1:10:571:11:07

and we just loved it. Deplted and fabulous at the same time, I --

1:11:071:11:13

demeanted and fabulous at the same time. I loved it. You could give me

1:11:141:11:17

whatever scores you want and I would still dance. I try my best,

1:11:181:11:26

but I'm always going to be Mr Show business. Astonishing. This week's

1:11:261:11:30

number is so me, it makes me feel like bursting into song.

1:11:301:11:34

# I am what I am # I don't want praise

1:11:341:11:40

# I don't want pity # I get this urge that comes all over

1:11:401:11:47

me. I don't know what it is. Is it called musicality? It's showbiz.

1:11:471:11:52

# So what if I love each feather and each bangle #

1:11:521:11:57

Because he loves the song so much, he wants to sing along. Obviously,

1:11:571:12:00

he doesn't concentrate on what his feet are doing. I need to do that

1:12:001:12:10
1:12:101:12:10

again. Russell, are you finished yet? I'm sorry guys, but we have a

1:12:101:12:19

show to put on on Saturday. Rehearsals, come on.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

Dancing the American smooth, CHEERING AND APPLAUSE What about it.

1:14:161:14:26
1:14:261:14:28

Come back here. Well done again. That was fantastic.

1:14:291:14:33

I don't know how you manage not to overdo it.

1:14:331:14:37

LAUGHTER Any way, Len? Well, I am what I am.

1:14:371:14:40

You are what you are. And that was what that was.

1:14:401:14:45

LAUGHTER You came out from that screen like

1:14:451:14:53

a giant ferero roche. It made me laugh honestly. Well done. Alesha?

1:14:531:14:58

That certainly was the dance of two halves. The first half, a good mix

1:14:581:15:02

of steps and the second half a snapshot of your imagination. It

1:15:021:15:08

looks like a fun place to be. couldn't wait to get out of that

1:15:081:15:14

closet, could you? APPLAUSE

1:15:141:15:21

You literally exploded out of it like, you really are your own

1:15:211:15:31
1:15:311:15:34

special creation. Craig? Immortal, darling.

1:15:341:15:42

APPLAUSE Is that it? It was sensational,

1:15:421:15:46

both of you. Well done. What a week of laughs you must have had.

1:15:461:15:56
1:15:561:16:11

Off you go. One word "wow". Look at this. Safe

1:16:111:16:17

to say they loved it. Relove you Russell. Thank you, darling.

1:16:171:16:21

Immortal darling, said Craig. It was absolutely brilliant. When you

1:16:211:16:25

started this series, you had two goals: One to get to the Hallowe'en

1:16:251:16:28

show and the other to get to Wembley. One down, one to go.

1:16:281:16:32

well if I get to Wembley, I've got a big entrance.

1:16:321:16:42
1:16:421:17:08

Have you? Another one. How you I'm transfixed by your golden eyes.

1:17:081:17:12

Call shortly, if you want our show stopper Russell to dance at Wembley

1:17:121:17:16

next Saturday. Would you be looking forward to the roar of over 6,000

1:17:161:17:24

people? I thought you said roar of over 60. Any age will do me. That's

1:17:241:17:29

it. All of our couples have pulled out all the stops, once again, with

1:17:291:17:39
1:17:391:17:46

That's. You've all been marvellous. I hope you'll agree that our nine

1:20:511:20:55

stars have done some something here that they should all be proud of.

1:20:551:21:00

Sadly the couple with the lowest combined score will not be on the

bus going to Wembley. They'll be leaving the competition. Make sure

Voting lines open at the end of the show. Once the judges' scores have been added to viewer votes, the lowest scoring couple will sadly have to leave the competition in Sunday night's results show.
