Everyone brought something to the party. Bottoms Up! Summer came out


of their shells. You could not be more can be if you tried. Others


were spitting feathers and won a Boreham a bird brain forgot how to

producer came rushing up to me today and asked if I'd seen this


great show on TV. She said, "It's fantastic, Bruce. And it's set in


the time when you were a child". And I said, "Oh, you mean Downton


Abbey?" She said, "No, Planet And there was one dinosaur called


camposaurus. He had a bit of a mince. Come back over here, please.


Tonight something big is about to happen. All 14 couples dancing on


the same bumper ballroom bill. Boil? Bill. It must be a big


boiler. That's right. Last weekend, 14 dancing stars were born. But


tonight it's a fight for survival because one couple will be the


first to leave the competition. Harsh but true. Adrenaline is


coursing through their veins. And blood is pumping through their new


buff ballroom bodies. Shall we let them rip, Bruce? What was all that

How about that? One of four. -- one before. That was great. -- one


before. Issues like a little swizzle stick. It's a good time to


welcome our singers Dave Arch and his wonderful orchestra. And of


course we have our judges. We all know that Craig is Australian. What


we all don't know is that recently As a citizen of this country may I


welcome you. And on behalf of Great Britain, I'd like to ask, any


chance we can appeal? The sorry about that, Craig. Len,


what did you make of this? They let anyone in nowadays, don't they? I


was a bit chilly around a Willie, but it warned me up a treat. What's


wrong with that? You came out and it was full on Nov. For me, your


hair was going like crazy. Your trousers were flapping about.


You've got to calm down, dear. It was too much. You've got to take


good karma. Having said that, it Now then, birthday girl, Alesha.


Fund, flirty and fearless. It's all about the personality. Let me tell


you, Chelsee, the section you did here was so impressive on your own


there. So impressive. I have to commend you for your lifts for the

it than held back so, overall, for me, it was brilliant. You're doing


a good job. Bruno of. I love you thought you had the energy of a

good reasons because you put That a bit at the start, it nearly


blew his hat off. A Craig, what did you think? A bit bouncy for me.


Sadly, after a reverse lift, getting into the second one was


almost a disaster for the but you save it. I really, absolutely loved


the alternating under terms Burma. I thought it was brilliant for the


High praise. Get off quick why you Commander, Chelsee. First Micro,


what a beautiful, uplifting start to the party. Yes, that is what I


wanted. Kicking of the show, it is a lot of pressure. Did you enjoy


it? I did, I am knackered now! Elegant last week in the waltz,


sexy in the salsa, what more have you got to give us? I have got a


lot more. If we have something up our sleeves. If she allowed a


celebratory phone call home if she gets through to next week? She is


allowed one phone call? Only one. These calls are in. It is time to

note down. That is if you want to see Chelsee score next week on the


dancefloor. The phone lines to not open until late in the show. Your


vote will not count and you may still be charged. Nobody wants the


first to go, but the couple were the lowest combined points will be


leaving tomorrow night. Someone has got to go! OK, now for our next


couple, Edwina Currie and her Now, I... I told Edwina, you. She


said, was it when you spoke to the judges? No, when you flashed your


knickers, red ones, too! You came on the wrong night, John! What did

me justice, because it was not supposed to be a comedy routine, it


was supposed to be a dance. It is a red hot curry. That is how my feet

was beautiful. That was the first time ever that I have dance Dave


Arch tart. The first time ever? Oh, and it could be your last! I did


not mean that. I just read it, I do not mean it. What did you make of


it? Well, I don't worry, I realised it was the first time you had dance


they foxtrot. Make the most of that meal, because that could be the


last supper. Oh, that is a bit strong. Too much messing about on


the table. I knew he was going to say that. I wanted more content of


the foxtrot, and unfortunately I did not get it. I thought he might


say that. She was going to pay the bill. What did you say to me?


Alesha? They are having a little chat. He said, I don't know nothing.


That is all of us! Alesha. Getting into character is brilliant, but


Len is right, it was too long getting into the dance. But when


you're dancing, it looked really nice. So you should be proud. Next


time, yes, dancing a little bit longer. Bruno. Naughty Edwina,


spending all the time playing under the table. You forgot about the


foxtrot, that is what happened. The foxtrot has to have a smooth flow.


The little there was, it was like watching a bendy bus negotiating a


tight roundabout. You could never quite getting to it. It is true!


You have to put a little bit more dancing into your dance show!


the first time ever, I would like to see some of you for the first


time doing a foxtrot, and she was wearing Tory blue. Grey. Well, when


you finally got into it, you're very hunched in your shoulder, your


balance was questionable. If you are brave enough to put that leg in


the air, make sure you are pounding the foot at least. The one, point.


That is it. Not enough Fox. We all loved it, didn't we? We all loved


it! Our crew go, it was marvellous. Come on, Edwina. Give us a roar.


think you should have this. Show them what you are made of. Too much


messing about, Len said. You used to be a politician, you're not


going to let him have the last word. I would have said, you really ought


to think about supporting the people who do all the hard work,


especially Vincent. I tell you, doing the foxtrot for the first


time is just an amazing, terrifying experience. She is living every


woman's dream. I think so! Oh, yes! Have a look at this. She is not


disagreeing, is she? Wait until you see what we can do next time.


Exactly. She teases us, the scores Same as last week. Same as last


19 out of 40, an improvement on last week, that is what it is all


about. Out of interest, Edwina, what would you have for dessert at


the Italian restaurant? I would have been sent! What woman


wouldn't? This is the number to call when the phone lines open.


That is if you would like another helping of Edwina Currie next


Saturday and you want to see her back in the ballroom. Over to you,


Bruce. Our third couple is Audley Harrison and his partner Natalie


I found out... I found out that Wardley has an 86 inch reach, that


is from one fist to the other, 86 inches. I wanted to find out just


in case I made a mistake and caught him Audrey. Here they hark, that


could have been nasty, here they Last week, Audley took it on the


chin. Hands, hands, hands! Flat- footed. The left the judges to


fight it out. When you walk by, Punch Craig, would you? I should


have! I look at Craig Revel Horwood like a pantomime villain. With


constructive criticism, I will knuckle down this week. I will give


you a Pass this week, but if you don't like me next week, this left

excited for the salsa, it will be a I am trying to get into it, what


you want from me?! I have flat and lazy feet. In boxing, to have


placement with your feet? course! Natalie has forced me to


get my feet working. That is the only sure you could find in my size,

MUSIC: "Don't Stop 'Til You Get How about that? Audley, I have seen


a few boxes in America, but you are the best we have ever had, I tell


you that. You really are. You have a rhythm about you. Alesha. You lit


up the room and put a smile on everybody's face. You tried so hard


and you did your best. Of course, lots of improvement but you on the


right track. You are enjoying it. And I enjoyed it. Bruno. He cannot


lose. You can't do it. The thing is, it was more like disco night down


the local pub. The cell set is a different, you lost the Sile --


style of the Salsa. There are certain things like the hip action,


the smooth movement of the arms of. But the energy was great and it's


All right. I think we know what you mean. Craig. Very flat footed but


I'm not surprised with those size feet. All for coming down the


stairs. When you run it in a dance routine, you can't run it like a


Norman person. -- like a normal person. Very plodding. They are two

You look like you have got a group going, which is fantastic. And a


bit of hip rotation, which we like. Len? When I heard the song, I


thought, I would have another this up about five seconds but no, I'm a


saying no, it is easy for a bigger man to look clumsy, but you didn't.


It was nicely placed. Everything was orderly, Audley, and for a


bigger man, you did a good job. wasn't hunched up like a boxer.


Wonderful posture. I wish I had posture like that. Well done.


They were on their feet appear for you, and that was all some. You


brought the ball and fight right here. I had to go for it. I gave it


my best shot. It was great. Great fun. It look like you are loving


every moment. Audley, how much do you want your size 17s on the floor


next week? A Yes, I really do. judges scores are in. Let's have a


look. The judges have their scores. Craig Revel Horwood. Len Goodman.


23. Is it Craig going to get that left hook? He gave me to good


comments. He's off the hook. That's a relief. Call 09015 22 20 07 when


lines open later if you think Audley is a force to be reckoned


with and you want to see him dancing next week. Remember, one


celebrity must leave the competition, which means the


pressure to perform is huge. The judges' scores are only half the


story. Your votes can help save your favourite couple. Back to you,


Bruce. Sorry, right. Now for our next couple, Alex Jones and her


Last week, they performed a chat chat chat. This week it's the


Before last week, when I stood on the actual studio floor, I felt


paralysed with fear, and then, of course, it was a lamb to the


slaughterhouse. Very starchy, very stiff, and lacked any excitement.


They were not great. Alesha encouraged us to go forward in the


competition. You're a sexy woman. Next three, go for it. There's only


one way to go and that's upwards, hopefully. The Foxtrot is the most


technically demanding of all the ballroom dances. I keep going right.

What are you doing over there? Well done. Very good. Lovely. Can you


dance, Miss Jones? You certainly can. Lovely. Bruno. Oh, Miss Jones!


I had no idea you were such a glamour puss. Equal part


sophistication, sex-appeal, elegance, great flow like a young


Joan Collins. You lost your frame a couple of times, otherwise, I was


pleasantly surprised. There we are. Ballroom are definitely suits you


You do go a little bit wobbly sometimes. You get willowy in your


body and have to firm up a bit. The key to this competition is to


improve each week and that is what you have done. You are much better


than last week. Yes, OK. Alesha? was understated and charming. Alex,

of his ballroom but how we cope with his first Latin dance? Here


Firstly, he did an amazing job. found the judges' comments are


confusing. Craig battled me -- baffled me. But it did feel as if


I'd worked really hard on my transitions. Can I give you some


criticism? No. He's a sensitive soul. Should she be more


understanding? Yes. I used to be a tennis coach. Show me your forehand.


What is that? These are two different things. We have a lot of


different works to do. Different Welcome to my world. Have you heard


of Tim Henman? No. I beat him. That's not the correct footwear for

giving you. I'm good! But the best one yet. Tennis or dancing? Dancing.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 66 seconds


Lovely, well done, Dan Lobb! Really great, I loved the tennis pit as


well. Start as off. Thank you so much of the hand spring and the


smile, darling, that was nice to save. The rest of it, unfortunately,


was not good. That round and round step, I would cut that, that was


just horrific. That was his favourite, he was so proud of it!


Was he? He was so proud! attractive, sadly, some of it,


especially getting in and out of the lists. Len. Well, for a nice


change, I cannot quite agree with cougar over most of that. He is


correct that the Doe's Kido was a little bit... But having said that,


at is that the word for it? All the staff, the bottom line is this for


you, I reckon this is the one dance that is going to least suit you,


and if that is going to be your worst dance, you have got a long


way to go. All right, lovely! Now then, Alesha. I do not think my mum


would think that was an attractive. I really wanted to be great,


because you have got the goods, the lists were great, the flare at the


beginning was really brave. Wasn't it? Latin may not be your strongest,


you may be stronger in ballroom, but you have that somewhere to


start. If that is your worst one, you have got somewhere to go.


missed the rehearsal, but you nailed it there, a true performer.


Bruno. Dan Lobb, it rhymes with Bob the Builder, that is what you were


like. You were swinging hair like a bag of cement! It was lumbering and


heavy. Salsa is smooth and flowing. Good effort, but not a good result.


Don't worry about that, you do not look worried. No. There are one,


off you go, be proud, it was Come on! It is Dan Lobb the


builder! Did you enjoy these somersaults? Yeah, we landed them,


that was enjoyable, but the most important thing is that neither of


us need hospital treatment, and as far as I'm concerned that is a


resounding success. I am very proud of you. Did you enjoy the freedom


of the Latin more than the ballroom? I did, yeah, that was


quite nice. Disappointing that they thought it was our worst dance. Oh,


that is a positive, sorry, I was confused by the judges again!


Backhanded compliments, tennis 21, four from Craig. Can I go and


sit down? You can in a moment, this is the number to call at the end of


the show if he wanted to be a case of Play It Again Dannah next week.


Still to come tonight, Oglaigh na Our next couple tonight is Lulu and


Now, Lulu is one of those performers who is so successful at


singing and so popular with the public that they becomes superstars


and unknown by just one name. She is up there with the likes of Kylie,


Don't be like that! I will clear the space, sarcasm. Here they are


Last week's show was a reality check. Len's words run through my


ears. You cannot go wrong, that is the first word of. I have got to


nail the steps. You are a great performer. I do not want to hear


that a great performer, I am a dancer. My brain cannot take it.

a tough week. There has got to be a breakthrough in How I learned. I


have to write and go over it like a mad thing. And a desperate woman, I


will be trying everything. Obviously, with Lulu forgetting


most of the routine last week, I had to come up with a bit of a


solution. Brain food! And what you're going to enjoy is some


lovely berries, but you might not enjoy the Brussels sprouts. Would


you least going to enjoy... Me and my friend Ted. You took too long.


Nice, that is looking more like a foxtrot. I do think that I have


made progress. Are you getting the feel of it? A bit more. I think it


is working. You just did the whole thing on your own. I might not have


a down completely, but I am keeping my fingers crossed. Dancing the


Apology for the loss of subtitles for 66 seconds


Lovely, Lola! Great job. Brendan is pleased with you, and I am. That


was so good, it really was. Len. Last week he went to pieces, but


this week you have got through the routine. That is the start. Now you


have to work on the Polish, you have got to work on your feet, they


need more conviction, your posture needs to be stronger. But what an


improvement on last week, a great improvement! So pleased. Alesha.


Yes, so much better than last week, you looked much more focused and in


control. It was very atmospheric, and I thought you would not make it


through without singing, you cannot help it! But it was lovely. Yes,


well done. Now then, Bruno! Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the


prettiest of them all? Star! you were tonight, because you


played it with the emotional fragility of a teenager in love


whose heart is about to be broken, and you were on it all the way


through. Len is right, it needs polishing, but you can dance if you


want to. That is it. Now then... Craig. I felt like you were trying


to keep up with Brendan, and you ended up chasing in a little bit


through the dance. Also, you were looking into his chest a lot of the


time. You need to make a decision, either left or right. But lovely


pivots, a really gorgeous standing spin. You are still my favourite!


Off you go, the pair of you, be Nice one, Brendan, well deserved.


You remember it all the steps, how relieved are you? We are so happy


for you! I know you are. Don't call it a comeback! Wardley is saying do


not call it a comeback. Great storytelling, quite right.


Seriously, though, how have you found this? Tougher than you


imagined? Oh, believe me! I thought it would be difficult, but not this


difficult, and I think my nerves kick in this week. Last week I was


trigger-happy, and I screwed it all up, but, yeah, much more difficult.


Are you kidding?! You do not know until you come near. The scores are


Eddie five out of 40, well done! Do not be shy, says Brendan. We have


still got plenty more action to come. Bruce. Next tonight is Holly


Valance and Ed Parker Artem Chigvintsev. -- her partner. Last


week, highly finished near the top of the leaderboard with their cha-

Last week, I was the first to perform, and to be honest I look


like a fold the Thursday it looked out to walk. It is not the best


first as I have seen. I thought it was going horribly wrong, he did a


little reversal on me. I tell you what, it was close, well done.


makes you feel good, it makes you want to keep trying and do better.


I am happy with this. He is never happy! I really want to impress the


judges, but I'm not grasping the salsa as quick as I thought I would.


It feels so wrong. It is all about performing the dance, selling it to


the crowd. You need to go for it, give it 100%? She feels a bit funny


to try to be sexy. I do not feel sexy at all! Can you just keep


dancing and looking at me? She really finds that hard. I might not


look at you, but I might look here. It is quite upsetting and


depressing sometimes. What is wrong with his face? Because she is an


actress, she has to act it out sexy. I will be selling overpriced


tickets. It has to look like our little party on the dance floor, so


I really need to go for it and Saturday night. Dancing the salsa,

Be happy! That was lovely. It was really good. Really good. Alesha.


Please don't question whether you are sexy or not. You are a goddess.


You move so well. Everything is well placed, graceful with sexiness.


Please just let go. Don't be afraid of. You have got it in there. You


are still questioning yourself and you could be amazing. That was


brilliant. Yes, amazing. Bruno. are a stunner with a capital S. You


have a top-of-the-range equipment. But you have a few gremlins in they

get going. You have got plenty of mileage in front of you. Q It Up


Baby, because you have got it! Words of wisdom they have. Craig?


Some timing issues there. The limbo straddle you did, you could have


gone further with that idea. Greater hip rotation, though. Great


you're putting those ahead of reps in it, what was good. The routine


was great. And Len? My overriding criticism is that you wanted to go


faster pulls up it's like pulling off a plaster, and you wanted to


pull it off and you kept losing your timing. You flew through


Artem's legs once and then twice balls-up it's like you're checking


for an oil leak! Apart from that, I thought it was great. Oh, Len.


Looking for an oil leak. Thank you, Yes! Salsa suits you. Frankly, all


of it does. Holly, you went for it. It was more fun this week,


definitely. Holly, you're a laidback Australian. Artem is a


steely Russian. How is this working out so well? I do what I'm told and


then it works. He has got the right attitude. Bitten by the ballroom


bug? Definitely. The judges scores are in. Craig Revel Horwood. Len

how much these stars need your vote. Without you they won't be back here


next week. And at bbc.co.uk/strictly you can log on

favourite impressionists were. I said, "Monet and Renoir".

show. And it does needed, at times! Nice to see you, to see you nous.

absolutely right so you take those things on board and you think about


what they are saying and you change it for next time. To be in the show

number two, give that a two! Listen, the more you give, the more marks


you get, and you are giving plenty, and you are going to get plenty!


Well done, Robbie, well done indeed. Ola. It is really good to see his

going, Robbie. Bruno. Robbie Savage has gone to Hollywood! Hang

Robbie! He shoots, he scores, they are on their feet in the studio and

ready for that? After last week, I think we might be in for a treat.


Over to you, Bruce. Craig gave him seven, go and have a lie down! Our


next couple is Anita Dobson and her partner Robin Windsor. Now then,


Anita was telling me that her husband, Brian May, and by the way,


he is here, how are you? I have always been a fan! He is the famous


musician from the group Queen, and he has agreed to re record one of


his hits in support of all the ladies on this show. Isn't that


nice? I just hope it is We Are The Champions and not Fat Bottomed


Girls. They would be furious! All right, here they are in training. I


It was a fantastic evening. It just seemed slightly dreamlike, that was


made dancing this wonderful dance. I was kind of almost not ready to

the first dance. Elegant, poised, beautifully acted. Boy, oh boy,


that was incredible! I want to do it again, I want to do more. I


cannot wait to learn some more, it This week we are dancing the salsa.


It is kind of mad and natty and slightly insane. I'm going to have


to get Anita to bring out her saucy side, because it is a very sexy


dance. Well, he has said that in order to make me even more at home


with the kind of movements, he wants to vocalise the whole dance.


Whatever makes it work, if that is what he wants me to do, I will do


it. Anita looks at me like I am absolutely crazy, but hopefully


these will make sense to her. much better when you do the noises!


I respond to his voice, if he makes a noise, I understand what that


does. Silently, my body is asking the question, her body is giving

were one or two incidents when there was a faux pas, but having


said that, I thought it was fantastic. It was fun, fun, fun.

much fun, I don't care about the mistake, that was brilliant, Anita.


It was a tropical cocktail follow flavour and spice that raises the


heat, so much so that he went on the wrong foot a couple of times,


but who cares? We had so much fun with it, and that is what sulci is


all about. I love the bump and grind you gave to Craig. You should


have seen his face. I thought it was like Bonnie Langford being


chased by parking Dalmatian. think that is probably good thing,


actually! Unintentional break for the worst in there, sadly, on the

Wright, time now for our next couple, Jason Donovan and his


partner Kristina Rihanoff. Wonderful! Now, Jason could not


have got off till a better start than last week, amazing, but can he


keep the standard up? That is the Jason's debut performance storms to


the top of the charts. Now Strictly is in business! Kate even left


Craig a bit sticky. interpretation of the Australian

those great moments in my career, a special moment. The hips do not

up! Come over here. Can he keep the standard that? I tell you, that was


marvellous, it was a little bit of Hollywood there. Alesha. Jason, you


are a real showman, UN character even before the music started. You


commit 100% to your performance, you moved brilliantly around the


floor, you mirror each other brilliantly, and it was a very


seductive foxtrot, and you completely seduced May, it was


wonderful. Behave yourself! In a very nice clean away. Bruno. Jason,


she is not bad, she has just drawn that way. That was so LA


Confidential, the fan fatale seducing the good guy, playing with


him, toying with him and disposing of them. But you are just acting,


this is a piece of acting that you do. It is absolutely great to see,


I love it. Wonderful story. OK, now then, Craig. Your head position


needs attention, especially in the standing spin, it is just a stiff,


but magnificent routine, Class C, stylish. Then, to agree about the


head position? Yes, his head could be to the left a bit more, but it


is not in my nature to be nasty. It was full of flair and personality,


that is what I have got to say, the footwork was mostly good. Now, can


you be top of the leaderboard two weeks running? I think so. Here we


go, off you go, be proud, it was A standing ovation. Come on up here.


How was that? Well, it's tougher the second week around. The Foxtrot


is such a concentrated effort. I think there is more personality


last week. I'm happy with that. What do your children think? They


will be waiting on the footpath for me tonight. As they did last week.

you can dance. But, Aliona, you have got to sort his posture and,


he is looking down a lot, his wrists need attention, his thumb


needs attention, there is so much detail that needs to be done, but


you could be fantastic. Yes. All those things need attention, but


whatever you do, don't have an operation. I will not speak to you,


Aliona, because I heard you say that you never listen to the


Church's, so I'm going to speak to you, Harry. There was nothing great


about it, but there was netting terrible. The thing is, it lacked


finesse, your left arm is too far forward, your right arm... And try

always down, you have got to lift up, stretch up, flat back, why

Good. Lift your chin up. Imagine what this is like! What did you


think? Harry, I think you move brilliantly, you are one of the


best dancers in this competition. Yes, you are. One I would say is,


because the judges see the potential, they might be tougher,


but you can turn that into a positive, that is what I would say


to you, because you are going to go far, trust me. Very important. It


was romantic. It was, I think there was something very, very special


about Harry. You are strong, you are focused, you work very hard.


You have got a great feel for the music. With the right nurturing,

everybody wants to, but listen, wasn't he great in his dance last


week? We all thought it was fantastic. I said to him, your


performance was like something I saw at Glastonbury. He said,
