Last weekend, our Strictly staff lived life to the full. It was

:00:12.:00:20.

party politics in the ballroom. There was dancing on the top table.

:00:20.:00:27.

You couldn't wipe the smile off their faces. You put the boy in

:00:27.:00:34.

flamboyant. But one was driven to the exit. Ahmed Qureia and Vincent.

:00:34.:00:42.

Tonight, hail a yellow cab to the Strictly Broadway Spectacular. Our

And we have Broadway this week. There is Robbie Savage, he could

:06:20.:06:29.

star in Hairspray! And Dell, Mamma Mia!! Tonight, we will be having

:06:30.:06:36.

lots of razzle and dazzle in the ballroom.

:06:36.:06:42.

We have our 13 remaining performers meeting to give it their all to be

:06:42.:06:47.

the top of the bill. We wish them all the best luck, we

:06:47.:06:52.

:06:52.:07:02.
:07:02.:07:03.

show. Yes! Astrologer to the stars, Russ

:07:03.:07:13.
:07:13.:07:15.

and his partner, Flavia Cacace. Lulu and her partner, Cole.

:07:15.:07:25.
:07:25.:07:25.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:07:25.:08:25.

Marvellous! Well, there they all are. In the mix you will find a

:08:25.:08:29.

talented Australian, a very popular senior citizen, a gorgeous young

:08:29.:08:34.

pop star and a steamy man-eating Italian. Hang on, a minute, that

:08:34.:08:40.

sounded more like the judges. Well, tonight, our critics, the

:08:40.:08:44.

judges are to score the Broadway routines and the celebrities ranked

:08:44.:08:49.

on the leaderboard. The scores are combined with your votes, one

:08:49.:08:53.

couple must exit, of course, stage left.

:08:53.:08:58.

If you are a digital viewer press the red button for live commentary.

:08:58.:09:08.
:09:08.:09:13.

Up in the Gods, there is Karen Hardy and Henry Winkler.

:09:13.:09:18.

He is cool. I've never been so hot in my life.

:09:18.:09:26.

Our first couple is Holly Valance and her partner, Artem Chigvintsev.

:09:26.:09:33.

Now, I was chatting to Holly earlier, she was telling me about

:09:33.:09:40.

the big three sports in Australia. I said which? She said team sport,

:09:40.:09:45.

individual sport and Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport sport! You

:09:45.:09:55.

promised you would laugh at that. Any way, here they are in training.

:09:55.:10:00.

Just before last week's show I got a nice feeling of calm, rather than

:10:00.:10:07.

sheer terror. So I felt like I got to have a bit more fun with it on

:10:07.:10:11.

stage. He is like a formula car, with all of the top of the range

:10:11.:10:15.

equipment, but there are a few gremlins to tune out.

:10:15.:10:20.

My job is to sell my performance. I could use Jason as inspiration,

:10:20.:10:26.

last week he was amazing to watch. So I have to put my game face on a

:10:26.:10:30.

little more. This week it is Broadway week, we are doing a song

:10:30.:10:36.

from the musical Chicago. I open up in this lovely cage. Go to prison!

:10:36.:10:42.

I'm meant to be in a jail cell for killing my husband! Working in

:10:42.:10:47.

Moscow, life is very hard! I was excited to put my student into the

:10:47.:10:54.

cage. I quite a many teacher. Not eight, seven! Keep moving the hands

:10:54.:10:59.

away, thank you. If she doesn't do the step right, she has to stay in

:10:59.:11:05.

the cell. Artem is tough in the training room,

:11:05.:11:10.

he pushes me very hard. Watch out this week, I may just get

:11:10.:11:14.

my revenge on the dancefloor. Dancing the tango, Holly Valance

:11:14.:11:24.
:11:24.:11:24.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:11:24.:13:15.

You liked that?! Holly, it is over! I didn't recognise you first of all.

:13:15.:13:18.

I tell you. That was great, well done.

:13:18.:13:25.

Now, whilst you two get your breath back, it's a good time to welcome

:13:25.:13:29.

our fabulous singers, Dave Arch and his wonderful Orchestra! And of

:13:30.:13:37.

course, a welcome to our judges! How could we have a night of

:13:37.:13:43.

theatre without them? And when I look at them, they remind me of

:13:43.:13:50.

some great musicals. Bruno is Footloose and probably

:13:50.:13:57.

fancy free! Alesha, is, of course, a Dream Girl. Len, eats Spamalot!

:13:57.:14:07.
:14:07.:14:15.

And right at the end we have got There we are, Len, what did you

:14:15.:14:23.

think of that opener? Be still, my beating heart! Full of smouldering

:14:23.:14:30.

intensity. As you cut him from the jail, I saw the blood swelling in

:14:30.:14:36.

your bosom. I saw when you caught your heel in the prop, you didn't

:14:36.:14:42.

let that phase you, on with the dance. It was a great start and a

:14:42.:14:46.

great dance! Well done. You are getting into it now! You

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:14:58.

Alesha? Chicago is one of my favourite musicals, sexy, feisty,

:14:58.:15:02.

dangerous. You were definitely sexy and I could see the actress

:15:02.:15:06.

emerging in you, especially when you were behind the bar, fantastic.

:15:06.:15:09.

I was hoping it would be a little more feisty and I don't know if it

:15:09.:15:14.

was when your skirt got caught in your heel, but it lost a little bit

:15:14.:15:19.

of intent for me. Just at that section, but you picked it up.

:15:19.:15:26.

right then. Bruno? Don't worry, Holly Smoke, you got me going!

:15:26.:15:30.

Tantalising. I want to be a criminal! Everybody can queue up to

:15:30.:15:36.

join you in jail. You are a gorgeous girl and I love the way

:15:36.:15:39.

you approach your dance. Of course, there was an incident, and because

:15:39.:15:45.

of that, after a turn, you lost a bit of balance, but God you've got

:15:45.:15:52.

promises. Plenty! Tell you one thing, Bruno, I don't

:15:52.:16:00.

think you'll be on a promise! Craig? I really like the bold,

:16:00.:16:02.

strong story-telling, thought it was full of drama and drive. I

:16:02.:16:06.

would have liked to have seen a lot more tension however throughout the

:16:06.:16:10.

entire body. Also, cleaner and sharper, finishing lines. That's

:16:10.:16:16.

what makes a tango interesting. But what I think is fantastic is

:16:16.:16:20.

getting out of the costume scenario, it was a bit messy but you got out

:16:20.:16:26.

of that beautifully. And I very much enjoyed it so thank you.

:16:26.:16:31.

Wonderful, Holly, be proud about that. Well done Holly and Artem.

:16:31.:16:41.
:16:41.:16:45.

Come on Hols, what a smouldering first act! Good job Artem

:16:45.:16:50.

remembered the key though, so relieved! Kicking off the Broadway

:16:51.:16:54.

special in front of ten million viewers, a standing ovation in a

:16:54.:16:58.

packed house. Not bad is it? It's a great start. Wonderful. Holly or

:16:58.:17:03.

Roxie should I call you? Roxie for today. Roxie for today. Artem

:17:03.:17:08.

sometimes gives you a hard time in training. Was it quite satisfying

:17:08.:17:13.

No, he's a delight! Have you seen the terminator in action. Was it

:17:13.:17:17.

satisfying to wipe him out at the end? I did enjoy killing him.

:17:17.:17:27.
:17:27.:17:41.

Revenge is sweet. Let's hope the Great score. Very strong start for

:17:41.:17:47.

Holly and Artem. Jot down the number and call later in the show

:17:47.:17:51.

if you think Holly should get a repeat performance next week. Don't

:17:51.:17:57.

call until we tell you lines are open. The couple with the lowest

:17:57.:18:01.

combined judges' scores and fewer votes will be Leighing the

:18:01.:18:04.

competition. We are running on with the show. Back to Bruce.

:18:04.:18:14.
:18:14.:18:15.

The next couple, Dan Lobb and his partner Katya Vishilas. Dan was

:18:15.:18:19.

telling me all about being a breakfast presenter. He said, all

:18:19.:18:24.

you have to do is get yourself in front of a camera and read all the

:18:24.:18:28.

words on the autocue. I said, really, I said, that's so simple,

:18:29.:18:34.

any idiot could do it. He said yes, Bruce, you do.

:18:34.:18:39.

If he was 12 inches shorter, I'd belt him one. Anyway, here they are

:18:39.:18:47.

in training. I was super happy with the

:18:47.:18:52.

performance. We didn't mess up any tricks or lifts and I tried to give

:18:52.:18:58.

it as much as I could. You were swinging her round like a bag of

:18:58.:19:06.

cement. It was lumcesuous. Craig's going to continue making up

:19:06.:19:12.

words, he's going to lose some credibility. He doesn't have any

:19:13.:19:19.

credibility, so he should just carry on. What we are doing now is

:19:19.:19:24.

called the fleckerl. No, you are like Craig, making this up. It's

:19:24.:19:29.

been another hard week. The hours on day break have caught up with me

:19:29.:19:33.

a little bit. My hip flexer. I should be taking more care of my

:19:33.:19:40.

body than I am. I'm not getting any younger. A twing. This week, the

:19:40.:19:46.

music is uplifting. -- twinge. Katya's an actress so I'll take a

:19:46.:19:52.

lot of tips from her. Yes, I can act. Look at this!

:19:52.:20:00.

Then back to that! I've got some tall ens there... I think.

:20:00.:20:06.

Dancing the vee niece waltz, Dan Lobb and Katya Vishilas -- vee

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:16.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:20:16.:21:56.

Lovely, lovely. You needed a rest. That's a

:21:56.:22:00.

strenuous dance, that. The Viennese waltz is a killer, really is.

:22:00.:22:05.

Beautiful. Even loved it. Alesha? Dan, you have so much potential in

:22:05.:22:08.

your ballroom dancing and certainly look so much more comfortable in

:22:08.:22:11.

hold. To be honest, generally, you move well around the floor, but I

:22:12.:22:16.

would have liked to have seen a bit more fluidity overall in your

:22:16.:22:20.

movement, it just gets a little bit stop-starty. But generally you move

:22:20.:22:23.

well and I think you will get better.

:22:23.:22:30.

A bit stop-starty. Bruno? Damn, this is Somebody To Love, Queen,

:22:30.:22:34.

the emotional musical little, this song should carry you into another

:22:34.:22:39.

world and you look like a casual acquaintance of Katya. You should

:22:39.:22:44.

be on her tighter and maybe it's because I had the privilege of

:22:44.:22:48.

working with Freddie Mercury, for me, you didn't really capture this

:22:49.:22:56.

at all, the spirit of the song. It was adequate, but for me, I wanted

:22:56.:23:01.

a much more love and intensity into it. It's not terrible, but a

:23:01.:23:06.

personal thing. Now then, Craig? You have an awkward nature about

:23:06.:23:11.

you, generally. The first hold, in that first arm thing, something

:23:12.:23:16.

went wrong there, I don't know what that was meant to be. You don't

:23:16.:23:19.

dance between steps and I mean, when you're in the in hold and when

:23:19.:23:22.

you're out of hold, you stop dancing, you stop dead, you've got

:23:22.:23:26.

to continue the dance all the way through the movement. Hand shapes,

:23:26.:23:31.

you need to look at. Your shoulders half way through started rising

:23:31.:23:36.

further until you had no neck at the end.

:23:36.:23:41.

And the standing spin was also very flat. You needed to get up on your

:23:41.:23:46.

toes. Len, control yourself?! come to praise Dan, not to bury

:23:46.:23:52.

him! Oh, yes! I thought your frame was

:23:52.:23:57.

good, footwork overall was good. You're a very tall chap and it's

:23:57.:24:02.

difficult. You're not an actor, you know, some of these judges want too

:24:02.:24:07.

much. It's Broadway Week. You are supposed to interpret a character.

:24:07.:24:11.

OK, hold your horses old sausage, will ya! OK, you are not the

:24:11.:24:16.

greatest actor of a dance, but you're all trying to get through

:24:16.:24:20.

the dance as best you can and I think that's what you did. So well

:24:20.:24:25.

done. Thanks, listen. And it's only week

:24:25.:24:29.

two. Off you go. We thought it was great, Dan.

:24:29.:24:38.

Off you go, up those stairs. APPLAUSE

:24:38.:24:43.

Go, Dan! Star turn tonight. You are a leading man on Broadway. How did

:24:43.:24:48.

it feel? Felt good. This one felt like we were actually dancing.

:24:48.:24:54.

the drama and the romance, we don't get to see that on Daybreak, do

:24:54.:24:59.

you? If you look closely, there's something between me and my

:24:59.:25:04.

colleague on a daily basis. He's not showbiz but he's getting there.

:25:04.:25:09.

Give it your best and see what happens. The scores are in!

:25:09.:25:19.
:25:19.:25:33.

24. Happy with that? Yeah. number to call is on the screen:

:25:33.:25:37.

If you're desperate for Dan to grace the dance floor next week,

:25:37.:25:41.

ring. You would like that, Dan, wouldn't you? Of course, who

:25:41.:25:47.

wouldn't?! Back to Bruce. For our next couple, Anita Dobson and her

:25:47.:25:53.

partner, Robin. Lovely Anita. Gorgeous.

:25:53.:25:59.

Let's find out how a West End star's been getting on with a

:25:59.:26:05.

Broadway Jive. Here they are in training.

:26:05.:26:10.

Last week, I felt disappointed in myself because I felt I could have

:26:10.:26:18.

done better. I looked like a little doll on acid.

:26:18.:26:24.

It was like Bonnie Langford being chased by a dalmatian. It's good to

:26:24.:26:31.

be having that stuff pointed out. We are doing a jive to a song from

:26:31.:26:37.

hair spray. You are going to so be in hair spri. As a cleaner...

:26:37.:26:44.

help her get in the mood, who help better to help her than Leanne

:26:44.:26:50.

Jones from Hair spray, the movie. She was adorable and brought us a

:26:50.:26:55.

goody bag. We need a blue bow as well. Getting into the hair spray

:26:55.:26:59.

spirit. Leanne being here I think is what I personally needed. She

:26:59.:27:04.

actually could explain what it felt like to perform that number. This

:27:04.:27:11.

is the chorus, motion on the ocean or the sun in the sky. Leanne's

:27:11.:27:17.

given an extra charge that we needed. You can't stop the beat...

:27:17.:27:21.

Can't wait to see how they do on Saturday, hopefully tens all round.

:27:21.:27:25.

I hope we do OK and whatever happens, we are going to sell to it

:27:25.:27:31.

the hilt! Dancing the jive, Anita Dobson and

:27:31.:27:41.
:27:41.:27:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:27:41.:29:25.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Look at these people, look! Anita,

:29:25.:29:34.

look at these people. Well done, Anita. Why didn't you

:29:34.:29:39.

have a jive night at the Queen Vic, you would brighten them all up, so

:29:39.:29:43.

miserable there. You have brightened it all up. Your

:29:43.:29:45.

performance level and character essentially is always great. The

:29:45.:29:49.

thing though, on the jive, you have to be a little sharper and your

:29:49.:29:53.

timing sometimes wasn't quite there. Maybe you were taken by his quiff,

:29:53.:29:57.

looks like dancing with a cockatoo. A bit more precise and cleaner on

:29:57.:30:07.
:30:07.:30:12.

the kicks and flicks, yes. For me I thought it was messy. On

:30:12.:30:17.

the kicks and the flicks you have to straight.your legs, point your

:30:17.:30:21.

toes. Pick up your feet a little more, but I loved the

:30:21.:30:24.

characterisation, I thought that was brilliant! APPLAUSE

:30:24.:30:34.
:30:34.:30:35.

Now, then, Len? Three words, fun, energy ic, tern takening! APPLAUSE

:30:35.:30:42.

And, we'll finish up with you, Alesha? I don't think the people at

:30:43.:30:48.

home will give two hoots that you didn't point you toes. You came out,

:30:48.:30:52.

performed it, it was entertaining and you lit up the room and you

:30:52.:30:58.

should be proud! You're a dramatic actress, I'm so proud of you, the

:30:58.:31:03.

way you had a go. Thank you again, off you go, the pair of you, lovely.

:31:03.:31:12.

Off you go! APPLAUSE Come on, you two! Just tell me

:31:12.:31:19.

where you have hidden robin? It is his alter e gorbgs o.

:31:19.:31:27.

Our leading lady, -- It is his alter ego.

:31:27.:31:32.

Our leading lady, did it help? did help, but I need to work more

:31:32.:31:38.

on my technique. Well, the jive is the quickest

:31:38.:31:44.

dance so far, how did you find it? He dances so fast on his feet.

:31:44.:31:54.
:31:54.:32:03.

You didn't break a sweat, Anita! 27 out of 40, happy with that?

:32:03.:32:13.
:32:13.:32:15.

bad. Now, remember, one celebrity must

:32:15.:32:20.

leave the competition, they all have to put in show-stopping

:32:20.:32:25.

performances tonight. No pressure, guys.

:32:25.:32:33.

No-one wants to flop on Broadway, isn't that right, Bruce? That is so

:32:33.:32:39.

right, Tess, well, I can't hear, can I? There is another famous

:32:39.:32:47.

Jones here tonight, my famous singer Jack Jones! APPLAUSE

:32:47.:32:52.

He is over here for a few weeks. Welcome, Jack, it is always lovely

:32:52.:32:58.

to see you in this country. Now, for our next couple, Alex Jones and

:32:58.:33:01.

her partner, James. APPLAUSE

:33:01.:33:07.

Now, during her routine last week, Alex sat on John Prescott's lap! I

:33:07.:33:11.

told Alex that John had to go to the hospital after the show. She

:33:11.:33:17.

asked if she had hurt him, but I said no, no, he needed a plastic

:33:17.:33:23.

surgeon to get the smile off his face. We don't see him smile much,

:33:23.:33:28.

do we? No! Here they are in training.

:33:28.:33:33.

After her left and right problems, Alex is finally heading in the

:33:33.:33:37.

right direction. Alex, you can dance, you just have

:33:37.:33:43.

to believe it. Nobody has said that to me. I'm not convinced yet. No,

:33:43.:33:48.

you are not. Controlling the nerves is an issue.

:33:48.:33:54.

We have having fun in the studio and she gets into here and it is

:33:54.:34:02.

like... Skapgs scream! ALEX NEVER SPEAKS ABOUT BEING Alex never

:34:02.:34:09.

speaks about being nervous in the training room. I have been going to

:34:09.:34:12.

skpreem tactics. I really don't want to go in here.

:34:13.:34:22.
:34:23.:34:23.

Are you nervous? Jirbgs if I go wrong, try leaving! Don't you do it.

:34:23.:34:30.

I will kill you. I was terrified, standing in the wings, but I really

:34:30.:34:34.

enjoyed it. Not many people can say that they have danced on the West

:34:34.:34:38.

End stage. They all started standing up. I thought they were

:34:38.:34:43.

leaving, but they stood up and clapped. I'm so pleased that is

:34:43.:34:48.

over. Maybe we can do it every week, well, not every week.

:35:30.:36:46.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE That was great! Look, leek here,

:36:46.:36:56.

look behind. It was great. When you did that at the end, I thought that

:36:56.:37:05.

AnneWiddecombe was coming out! Craig? That was clever, James, that

:37:05.:37:09.

was simple, uncomplicated, she is in hold, it gives her ever

:37:09.:37:13.

advantage. The only thing I would say is I would like to see it be a

:37:13.:37:17.

little more daring, that is the only thing, but I have to say I

:37:17.:37:22.

loved it. I really loved it. Craig loved it! Settle for that.

:37:22.:37:28.

Don't go any further. Len? It was simple, but it was simply

:37:28.:37:33.

beautiful! Thank you. I know the rugby, the Welsh rugby

:37:33.:37:38.

team didn't win, but I tell you, tonight you're a winner. That was

:37:38.:37:44.

great. Beautiful. I saw a tear in Len's eye, there,

:37:44.:37:49.

Alesha? Absolutely beautiful, Alex. For me, you are the most improved

:37:49.:37:55.

tanser. You looked elegant. Dreamy, you kept your composure, you told a

:37:55.:37:58.

story, it was wonderful. Lovely.

:37:58.:38:04.

Bruno? Alex, those open figures, it was like watching a magical bird,

:38:04.:38:08.

stretching its wings for the first time, ready to take flight and

:38:08.:38:15.

taking us all into a wonderful, wonderful ride. It was, as Len said,

:38:15.:38:18.

absolutely beautiful in its simplicity.

:38:18.:38:21.

Thank you. I would settle for that. You can't

:38:21.:38:27.

ask for more. Get off quick before they change their mind! Off you go!

:38:27.:38:37.
:38:37.:38:38.

APPLAUSE Come on, Alex! Wow! Unforgettable!

:38:38.:38:43.

Thank you, Tess. Alesha says most improved. Do you

:38:43.:38:50.

remember where you were a couple of weeks ago? Well, Bambi! James is a

:38:50.:38:56.

great teacher. What do you think, James? I agree!

:38:56.:39:01.

About Alex's progress? She has improved immensely. When she said

:39:01.:39:05.

she had never danced, I thought everyone has danced before, but I

:39:05.:39:08.

realised she had not. She has come a long way.

:39:08.:39:18.

Come a long way in a short time! The scores are in! Ladies and

:39:18.:39:28.
:39:28.:39:32.

gentlemen the judges have their Yes! What about that, then? 32. You

:39:32.:39:37.

have to start believing now. You are a dancer. Well done, Alex and

:39:37.:39:47.
:39:47.:39:51.

James. Come on!

:39:51.:39:59.

Now, don't go dialling yet as the lines are not open.

:39:59.:40:09.

Right, next up. Next up we have Rory Bremner and his partner Erin.

:40:09.:40:14.

Do you know, Rory even does great impressions of sportsmen. I said

:40:14.:40:20.

what about Wayne Rooney? Can you do an impression of him? He said yes,

:40:20.:40:26.

he kicked me in the shins! Come on, that was a good joke! I'm waiting

:40:26.:40:31.

here! That's it, now the applause should have stopped... Then! Right!

:40:31.:40:41.
:40:41.:40:47.

Here they are, in training Rory Rory left a lasting impression on

:40:47.:40:51.

the judges but for all of the wrong reasons.

:40:51.:40:56.

You were wrong. It was like a sticky strip.

:40:56.:41:03.

He was right. Shall we go again! The thing about me, is I am a bit

:41:03.:41:08.

of a chameleon, I like to adapt and look the part, but I will have to

:41:08.:41:13.

learn to have to be a slightly calmer chameleon.

:41:13.:41:19.

No! What is that? Erin wants me to have a top hat and a cane. I get

:41:20.:41:22.

frustrated. I can't do it at this stage.

:41:22.:41:28.

I have to say to him to calm down and put all of that energy into his

:41:28.:41:33.

feet. I know I shouldn't beat myself up, that is Craig's job.

:41:33.:41:38.

This show is getting madder and madder. Last week it was John

:41:38.:41:42.

Prescott, this week it is blier blier blier, thank God it was him

:41:42.:41:48.

and not Tony. -- Lionel Blair, thank God it was

:41:48.:41:52.

him and not Tony. He knows what he is doing,

:41:52.:42:00.

hopefully on the night so will I! Dancing the quickstep, Rory Bremner

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Rory Bremner! Rory, don't miss this

:43:59.:44:05.

moment. I tell you, well done. I loved the Charleston bit. Well, I

:44:05.:44:10.

tell you what, Fred Astaire did not turn in his grave, but I think he

:44:10.:44:14.

may have fidgeted a bit! Len, start us off.

:44:14.:44:19.

You, on Broadway, that was it. The right song, the right style, the

:44:19.:44:25.

right routine. Your best dance, well done, Rory! Thank you.

:44:25.:44:31.

Don't leave Erin out there. Alesha? You really enjoyed that,

:44:31.:44:34.

didn't you, Rory? You held the character of the dance from

:44:34.:44:38.

beginning to end. The timing was great, the framing was great. The

:44:38.:44:42.

quickstep is your dance. That is your dance.

:44:42.:44:46.

Erin is the best, but that was fantastic.

:44:47.:44:53.

Bruno? All of the razzle and dazzle of the great white way, Mr Showbiz,

:44:53.:45:01.

but just be care wfl the trout pout! -- but just be care wfl the

:45:01.:45:11.

trout pout! Craig? Talking about trout pout! Now, I didn't mean

:45:11.:45:19.

that! I didn't even read it, it came out of my head! I'm sorry to

:45:19.:45:24.

put a dampner on this, but the hands, you are leaning over,

:45:24.:45:28.

Redcarin and the posture is not great, but, it was full of style,

:45:29.:45:33.

it was full of panache, it was full of confidence, I think you did a

:45:33.:45:37.

brilliant job. A brilliant job, how about that! Go

:45:37.:45:47.
:45:47.:45:48.

on, Rory, go on, Erin. Go on up those stairs! APPLAUSE

:45:48.:45:54.

Here comes the quick sterp! We tip our hat, Rory.

:45:54.:46:02.

Well, I owe it all to Erin, she is the Queen of ballroom. I owe it all

:46:02.:46:05.

to her. Did you like it up there? I loved

:46:05.:46:09.

it. It is a classic look. You inhabit the suit.

:46:09.:46:14.

It suited you. Lionel Blair helped you out. He know as little bit

:46:14.:46:20.

about Broadway, did he give you any tips? He was wonderful. He said he

:46:20.:46:22.

was more nervous than I was. Thank you very much.

:46:22.:46:32.
:46:32.:47:01.

The number to call later: Till co-come, our ballroom guys,

Robbie, Harry, Audley, Jason and Russell. And, girls, Chelsee and

Nancy. It's razzamatazz time! Razzamatazz Tess! Our next couple

:47:15.:47:25.
:47:25.:47:25.

is Lulu and her partner, Brendan Cole! Yes, now, Lulu, last week,

:47:25.:47:29.

she danced in front of a massive big mirror, nine feet tall by four

:47:30.:47:34.

feet wide. I said to her, she said to me rather, I wonder where it

:47:34.:47:39.

came from, I said my bathroom, I use it when I shave my chin!

:47:39.:47:44.

Now that's not funny. That is NOT funny. See, the good jokes you miss

:47:44.:47:49.

and that joke you have a go at me. Right, I'm getting angry now. Her

:47:49.:47:54.

they are in training. -- theer they are in training.

:47:54.:48:00.

Last week, I was nervous. Absolutely beautiful. I breathed

:48:00.:48:10.
:48:10.:48:11.

deeply. Focused. I think it really helped me. You played it with the

:48:11.:48:15.

emotional fragility of a teenager in love whose heart was just about

:48:15.:48:21.

to be broken. What an improvement on last week. Well done. Great

:48:21.:48:28.

improvement. I'm like a cluts. week we are doing the most

:48:28.:48:33.

beautiful track of music from the Phantom Of The Opera. I can't do

:48:33.:48:37.

this, I can't. I'm not anywhere near elegant. No-one's expecting

:48:37.:48:44.

you to be Braille yant at the moment. -- brilliant. I need to

:48:44.:48:53.

change her mindset. You need to go, boom, boom, boom. Bren Brendan

:48:53.:49:00.

decided to bring in some masks today. Do you think this will give

:49:00.:49:07.

me inspiration to dance. Oh, Andrew, you've never been better. Whether

:49:07.:49:12.

she gets it on the night is another story.

:50:58.:51:05.

Yeah, you did it, baby! Lovely, Lulu. Well done, my darling, well

:51:05.:51:12.

done. Look at them here! Oh! And the music and the singing, it was

:51:12.:51:16.

all so beautiful. Magical, thank you so much, guys, just amazing.

:51:16.:51:19.

And the singing was gorgeous. Absolutely. All right, we are going

:51:19.:51:24.

to start off with you, Alesha? felt really nervous for you, but

:51:24.:51:28.

you did it again, a great story and you told it brilliantly. It was

:51:28.:51:31.

romantic and you played it with sensitivity and you are elegant.

:51:31.:51:39.

Don't let me hear you say that again! You are very elegant.

:51:39.:51:43.

can't believe how good you are playing that person being seduced

:51:43.:51:47.

by the dark, is she going to give in and deliver at the end of the

:51:47.:51:51.

story. I was expecting a rock chick and you are so lyrical and fluid.

:51:51.:51:55.

You missed a few passes because the choreography was very, very

:51:55.:52:02.

difficult, but otherwise, very well done. Thank you. Thank you.

:52:02.:52:09.

about you, huh?! Craig? Illegal lifts will not be tolerated, I'm

:52:09.:52:12.

afraid, and will be penalised and I think you are playing with fire. I

:52:12.:52:16.

think you're doing your celebrity a disservice by putting them in.

:52:16.:52:22.

Otherwise everyone can do it. are, from your point of view with

:52:22.:52:25.

that music, would you have done anything other than that? Yes, I

:52:25.:52:30.

would have stuck to the rules. Actually, you know what happened,

:52:30.:52:36.

Craig... They're the rules of ball rooment -- ballroom. We talked

:52:36.:52:41.

about it and discussed it and that was the best thing for the dance.

:52:41.:52:47.

My granddaughter wanted it in, she watched us when we did it and went

:52:47.:52:53.

"yeah", so we wanted it in. Len? You have to break eggs to make an

:52:53.:52:57.

omelette and sometimes you have to break rules to make a routine

:52:57.:53:02.

complete and that's what you did. Thanks, Len. Every week you've got

:53:02.:53:08.

better and better. Well done. are getting better and better.

:53:08.:53:18.
:53:18.:53:27.

Emotion and story-telling. Hello, Broadway! Here I come...

:53:27.:53:30.

A Phantom-inspired rumba, the dance of love. Who thought you two would

:53:30.:53:40.

be doing that a few weeks ago? Patrick Swayze. I feel like

:53:40.:53:44.

Jennifer Gray. That's where we went wrong, she was in the wrong

:53:44.:53:49.

blooming musical. It didn't go wrong, that's the point. It's so

:53:49.:53:52.

inspiring, Phantom Of The Opera, the choreography and to teach Lulu

:53:52.:53:56.

it, I had a great time, thank you very much. You said you couldn't do

:53:56.:54:01.

it, you did it Lulu, you go, girl, the scores are in! The judges have

:54:02.:54:11.
:54:12.:54:25.

It's a decent score. Call when the phone lines open later if you want

:54:25.:54:31.

Lulu to come back for an encore next week. How does that sound?

:54:31.:54:35.

granddaughter would love it. Ready for more star turns, ladies and

:54:35.:54:42.

gents? They're off. Ready, Brucie? Next tonight is Nancy Dell'Olio and

:54:42.:54:51.

her partner, Anton. Now, Nancy came to my dressing room

:54:51.:54:56.

earlier today and said, I'm very upset, Bruce, everyone thinks I

:54:56.:55:00.

fancy you. It isn't fair. I said, can't we talk about this later,

:55:00.:55:09.

Nancy, there isn't enough room for us in this wardrobe. She was all

:55:09.:55:15.

over me. I hate to be hunted. Anyway... I love to be hunted

:55:15.:55:23.

really. But here they are in training.

:55:23.:55:28.

Everybody will see what happen tonight. Last week, I felt very

:55:28.:55:34.

proud. Not because it was perfect, it was not perfect. I didn't look

:55:34.:55:39.

down at any stage, but I could feel there was a bit of kicking and

:55:39.:55:44.

smuttering going on. I loved it, for the judges it was another story.

:55:44.:55:52.

Absolutely no idea where you went. What counts is the people loved it.

:55:52.:56:02.
:56:02.:56:02.

Pull me up... This week, we are doing tango from a musical. If you

:56:02.:56:05.

try to resist, I'm going to use this. I'm trying to take control.

:56:05.:56:10.

No, we do this first... No, we do this first. You can go your own way.

:56:10.:56:15.

At the end, because he's very smart, he knows that my ideas are better.

:56:15.:56:18.

I'm going to invite the Italian ambassador to come to see the show.

:56:18.:56:25.

You get your guest list sorted out, I'll do the choreography. I haven't

:56:25.:56:29.

gone with her ideas because they're rubbish. Don't get me wrong, I

:56:29.:56:33.

don't mind her way. Your feet near my head? Are you mad?! She's not

:56:33.:56:43.
:56:43.:56:44.

the right one. It's impossible. Dancing the tango, Nancy Dell'Olio

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Come to Brucie! May I say something.

:58:40.:58:45.

You invite me to come to your dressing, I do not remember?! I

:58:45.:58:49.

mean, unbelievable, just for my reputation. There's another show

:58:49.:58:53.

going on over there! Come here, you naughty boy. I know I did invite

:58:53.:58:57.

you and you came to my dressing room No, you invite me... I know I

:58:57.:59:07.
:59:07.:59:17.

did. We've done that! I think... You were really the tempestuous

:59:17.:59:24.

tempt res, I love the bit on the chair, peekaboo, you see me, you

:59:24.:59:28.

see me not. It actually looked like a tango and you actually looked

:59:28.:59:35.

like you can dance. Carry on this way, much, much improved! OK, OK,

:59:36.:59:44.

OK?! Gracia! Craig? I don't know what Bruno was

:59:45.:59:49.

watching. She was better. Darling, it was like a plodding mule

:59:49.:59:57.

trudging through mud. The only accents were when you threw her

:59:57.:00:05.

into her position. That is plod ck accents, they're in the music which

:00:05.:00:15.

we try to accentuate. You have to recognise an improvement when it's

:00:15.:00:25.
:00:25.:00:26.

visible for us all to see. Len, Len, I'm sure... It was so terrible last

:00:26.:00:32.

week, anything would have been a blooming improvement. There was

:00:33.:00:42.
:00:43.:00:43.

lots of style, but no substance. I'm so disappointed. I'm not giving

:00:43.:00:49.

him a putt again. Never ever after this. Alesha? I liked the intro,

:00:49.:00:52.

the drama, you were totally in character, I loved the story-

:00:52.:00:56.

telling, so I applaud you on that, but you knead to strengthen your

:00:56.:01:01.

body from head-to-toe but it was an improvement from last week.

:01:01.:01:06.

improvement. Don't listen to them! I'm going to make you my favourite.

:01:06.:01:16.
:01:16.:01:22.

Thank you, Bruce. Off you go, my Come on! Come up here, you two.

:01:22.:01:26.

Magnifico, Nancy. At least there was great story telling.

:01:26.:01:30.

Yes, but he tried to finish the story.

:01:30.:01:35.

They kept talking! I tried to finish it off at the end there. I

:01:35.:01:40.

was trying to steal a kiss! Were you really? I didn't mean to

:01:40.:01:45.

interrupt that stkhrap Wow, goodness me! You were not supposed

:01:45.:01:51.

to kiss me back, what's the matter with you! I think we'll go to the

:01:51.:02:01.
:02:01.:02:11.

20 out of 40. Which bits of the dancing worked

:02:11.:02:21.

couple, Audley Harrison and his partner, Natalie.

:02:44.:02:51.

Good. Now, after being in the bottom two last week can Audley,

:02:51.:02:55.

with his size subpoena shoes, impress with the quickstep? Let's

:02:55.:03:05.
:03:05.:03:05.

find out. Here they are in training. Despite being up on the judges'

:03:05.:03:09.

scorecards... You look like you have a bit of groove going, and a

:03:09.:03:14.

bit of hip rotation. Audley just about managed to save

:03:14.:03:21.

himself from the knock-out row. Keep dancing, Edwina, keep dancing!

:03:21.:03:25.

It is Broadway, we are doing the quickstep.

:03:25.:03:29.

Our song is called Too Darn Hot. I think that Audley will be

:03:29.:03:33.

definitely feeling the heat. You know how intense your boxing

:03:33.:03:39.

training can get? Yep. I thought I would step things up a little bit

:03:39.:03:45.

this week, are you ready to sweat? Yeah, let's do it. Mr Harrisons

:03:45.:03:52.

what are you doing? We're not here to relax, we are here to dance!

:03:52.:04:02.

This is about 100 degrees, this crazy girls has me running, I'm A

:04:02.:04:07.

Celebrity Dancer and dancing in 100 degrees. You can see how hot it is

:04:07.:04:12.

here. I am working really hard. This week we don't want to be in

:04:12.:04:17.

the bottom two. No pain no, gain! Dancing the quickstep, Audley

:04:27.:04:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:04:27.:06:11.

Audley! Well done. Thank you.

:06:11.:06:17.

You did a great job there. You are right, it is too darn hot

:06:17.:06:23.

in here as well. Craig, start us off? The timing was out in the

:06:23.:06:27.

beginning. All of the Charleston sections you have to put a lot more

:06:27.:06:32.

energy in to. It let the side down. I thought it was much, much lighter

:06:32.:06:36.

than I had anticipated. I thought you would come out heavy,

:06:36.:06:41.

but I really loved all of the acting through it. Well done.

:06:41.:06:45.

Great. Great. Len? This was a little dangerous,

:06:45.:06:49.

that little slide through, you could have ruined your prospects

:06:49.:06:58.

there! Now, listen, it is a dance to, which, from up the top you are

:06:59.:07:03.

joyful and full of verve, but it is from the waist down you have to get

:07:03.:07:13.

better in the footwork, but I have to say, I agree with Craig, ha-ha!

:07:13.:07:19.

I do agree with him. Alesha? There was a lot of great

:07:19.:07:22.

footwork, I clearly commend you for that. You have the right attitude

:07:22.:07:26.

for the competition, you are a hard worker, but work on the feet and

:07:26.:07:31.

get a bit of spring in your step, but for a big guy, you didn't do

:07:31.:07:37.

too bad. Come on, I think he did incredible

:07:47.:07:48.

serve boards and he has to navigate one of the most difficult dances in

:07:48.:07:55.

the ballroom show. He did remarkably well.

:07:55.:08:03.

Audley, you did very well. You are my favourite. You are my favourite

:08:03.:08:08.

too! Come on, then. Yes, Audley. Come on, my love. Too darn hot it

:08:08.:08:14.

looked darn quick! Well done. You are a huge heavyweight boxer, you

:08:14.:08:20.

are not used to moving your feet that quick? Not at all. I did say

:08:20.:08:24.

at some point I would trip over my feet. That was today.

:08:24.:08:30.

Is it true, you are now back to your fighting weight? I am coming

:08:30.:08:35.

close. I have lost a stone. It is getting Strictly Fit. The

:08:35.:08:45.
:08:45.:08:58.

Bottom two last week, Audley, you don't want to thereby again, do

:08:58.:09:03.

you? No. We don't. We tried to work really hard this week. I feel good

:09:03.:09:13.
:09:13.:09:15.

about the dance. Go on, Audley, give it some.

:09:15.:09:24.

Now, our next couple is Robbie Savage and his partner, Ola Jordan.

:09:24.:09:29.

Now last week Robbie got a standing ovation. He was over the moon. I

:09:29.:09:36.

said to him when was the last time you saw a crowd stand up and cheer

:09:36.:09:42.

like that, he said when he got sent off! He told me he used to carry a

:09:42.:09:47.

red card in his pocket, in case the referee forgot his. I thought I

:09:47.:09:52.

would say that, I don't know why. It is like working in one of those

:09:52.:09:59.

rotten clubs. Any way, here they are in training.

:09:59.:10:05.

# Today this could be # The greatest day much our lives...

:10:05.:10:11.

# I have to say that was one of the best nights of my life. You little

:10:11.:10:15.

beauty! I'm telling you! I thought Robbie was going to start crying.

:10:15.:10:23.

It was really lovely for him. was showbiz and I loved it.

:10:23.:10:28.

judges' scores have given me the belief I can get up to 29. Can I

:10:28.:10:32.

continue that? I will have to wait and see.

:10:32.:10:36.

We had Robbie's kids coming into training. They were so sweet.

:10:36.:10:43.

Seeing the kids gave me a massive lift. This week we're dancing the

:10:44.:10:49.

tango. One, two! I cannot spin. That is horrible. Even one spin, I

:10:49.:10:55.

don't know where I am. This could turn into Sickly Come Dancing! I am

:10:55.:11:01.

a bit of a big girl's blouse! never heard anyone mooning so much.

:11:01.:11:08.

It is hard this week. Seriously. Hard, mate. Knackered! Is he

:11:09.:11:15.

telling you how hard it is? That's all I hear all day! This is

:11:15.:11:22.

incredibly hard! Dancing the trangow, Robbie Savage and Ola

:11:22.:11:26.

Jordan. -- dancing the tango, Robbie Savage

:11:26.:11:36.
:11:36.:11:36.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:11:36.:13:15.

Robbie! Look, two weeks running! You did it again, son! Ola, what

:13:15.:13:22.

are you doing to this man?! Right, Len, start us off, please? Robbie

:13:22.:13:26.

the Savage attacks the tango. You did. You came out with great intent

:13:26.:13:30.

it was full of attack and aggression, which is basically what

:13:30.:13:34.

the tango is about. You were saying it is hard, it is hard. No-one said

:13:34.:13:38.

it is easy, this process. It is hard. You have to work and get

:13:38.:13:43.

through it, but I tell you what, that was a great effort. Well done.

:13:43.:13:48.

Thank you. Alesha? Yes, Robbie, you should be

:13:48.:13:52.

proud. This dance suits you, bundles of attitude and passion.

:13:52.:13:56.

You came out and strode around the floor with intent and determination,

:13:56.:14:00.

you are fast becoming one of the strongest contenders in this

:14:00.:14:07.

competition. Bruno? Robbie, what can I say?

:14:07.:14:15.

Mamma Mia! Here you go again! How can I resist you?! Stronger and

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:26.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Do you know the rest of that?

:14:26.:14:30.

now! I can carry on if you want though. I could have done without

:14:30.:14:34.

all that singing, darling. Full of aggression, Len's absolutely right,

:14:34.:14:43.

it was full of purpose, had attack, it was assertive. Well done. Robbie,

:14:43.:14:53.
:14:53.:15:01.

You're a contender now! Strictly Come Dancing here we come! Was it

:15:01.:15:08.

hard? Yes, but as Len said, I've got to get better. These are great

:15:08.:15:16.

people here. You are Robbie Savage's hard man from football and

:15:16.:15:26.
:15:26.:15:43.

here you are dancing to Abba. Better than last week. Pick up the

:15:43.:15:49.

phone later and call to keep them in and you want Robbie to dance

:15:49.:15:52.

again. Show us your teeth, Robbie. There

:15:52.:15:56.

they are! Still to come, Russell and Jason

:15:56.:16:00.

and Harry give their regards to Broadway, yes!

:16:00.:16:03.

But will they get critical acclaim from the judges? We'll find out.

:16:04.:16:07.

Back to Bruce. Thank you, Tess. Our next couple is

:16:07.:16:14.

Russell Grant and his partner, Flavia!

:16:14.:16:20.

Now, after two weeks of impressing the judges with his moves, can

:16:20.:16:24.

Russell shine with the foxtrot? I wouldn't be at all surprised. Here

:16:24.:16:30.

they are in training. Last week, Russell embraced his

:16:30.:16:34.

role as high Queen of the dance floor and I think he enjoyed

:16:34.:16:40.

himself! Oh, was I in my element, it was like having porridge with

:16:40.:16:48.

maple syrup. It was that delicious! You put the boy in flamboyant.

:16:48.:16:52.

I'll take boy! I'll take flamboyant!

:16:52.:16:57.

Absolutely loved it. Fantastic. A standing ovation again. Amazing.

:16:57.:17:03.

When you are doing a number like Don't Rain On My Parade, you

:17:03.:17:09.

shouldn't be in a place like this. Don't stay there, come with us. How

:17:09.:17:14.

are you, darlings? The Savoy. I played this one. We can't even go

:17:14.:17:24.
:17:24.:17:24.

shopping now without breaking into a cha-cha-cha. It's it divine!

:17:24.:17:29.

Welcome to my world, Flavia, darling. Give me a theatre and I'm

:17:29.:17:35.

so happy. Oh! It's just so fantastic. How have I lived without

:17:35.:17:40.

all this for so many years? Just makes you want to go into a number,

:17:40.:17:47.

doesn't it?! Dancing the foxtrot, Russell Grant

:17:47.:17:57.
:17:57.:17:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:17:57.:19:35.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE What about him?! You've done it

:19:35.:19:45.
:19:45.:19:46.

again, Russell, look! Look at them. A superstar is born! Oh absolutely,

:19:46.:19:53.

can't stop smiling, oh, what can I say? Do you sell ice-creams?!

:19:53.:19:59.

Alesha? Showbiz, Broadway, ballroom, what can't Russell do?! You are my

:19:59.:20:03.

guilty pleasure, I absolutely adore you and I just want to say, it's so

:20:03.:20:06.

refreshing to have a celebrity contestant who's so positive and

:20:06.:20:12.

grateful to be in this competition. No, I love that. He never moans

:20:12.:20:18.

ever! He's a sweetheart. You are right? Russell, you have the

:20:18.:20:23.

uplifting quality of blazing sunshine. It was a very good

:20:23.:20:31.

foxtrot. You went from funny girl to gypsy Rosie Lee. You did it

:20:31.:20:39.

beautifully. I tell you, I've enjoyed it so much. Thank you!

:20:39.:20:46.

then, Craig. Don't look so severe? I would advise a more masculine

:20:46.:20:56.
:20:56.:21:07.

Excuse me... Pot and the kettle! little less Barbie and a little

:21:07.:21:11.

more Rambo. You were like a little white cloud drifting across the

:21:11.:21:21.
:21:21.:21:21.

floor and your little yellow dicky was the sun! Last week you put the

:21:21.:21:27.

boy in flamboyant and this week you put the show in show business.

:21:27.:21:36.

Len, thank you, thank you, very kind, thank you. Go on, everybody

:21:36.:21:46.
:21:46.:21:55.

APPLAUSE I don't think anyone could rain on

:21:55.:21:59.

your parade right now, Russell, I really don't. No, no, I just love

:21:59.:22:04.

it. I just love everyone out there! I love everyone in here. It just

:22:04.:22:10.

gets better and better doesn't it, musical theatre, right up your 4

:22:10.:22:14.

2nd Street? It was. I had a funny do in the middle, I wanted to

:22:14.:22:19.

become Barbara Streisand and sing the number, you I thought to myself,

:22:19.:22:24.

no, I'm just going to play in butch but it never worked! Never mind.

:22:24.:22:26.

Better luck next time. The scores are in.

:22:26.:22:36.
:22:36.:22:49.

Ladies and gentlemen, the judges Well done, Russell and Flavia.

:22:49.:22:59.
:22:59.:23:05.

The number to call when lines open Remember, if you want to see our

:23:05.:23:08.

celebrities face the music and dance again next Saturday, they'll

:23:08.:23:14.

all need your votes. Back to you, Brucie.

:23:14.:23:19.

Now, time for our next couple, Jason Donovan and his partner,

:23:19.:23:28.

Kristina. For tonight's dance, Jason is

:23:28.:23:32.

taking his inspiration from Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert. He

:23:32.:23:37.

starred in this West End show as a female impersonator. I said, what's

:23:37.:23:41.

it like having to put women's clothes on every night, he said, it

:23:41.:23:49.

can be a bit of a drag! I love it! Love it!

:23:49.:23:54.

You're getting better! You can't get worse... Here they

:23:54.:24:01.

are in training. I have to say, I didn't expect it

:24:01.:24:05.

to go as well last Saturday, if I'm really honest. Can you be top of

:24:05.:24:14.

the leaderboard two weeks running? I think so. Getting the nine from

:24:14.:24:20.

Alesha last week was a very special moment. Well done, babe. Give me

:24:21.:24:25.

five. It's Broadway Week. We are visiting a musical in which I spent

:24:25.:24:31.

18 months in. Hello. Hello. I'm going to take Kristina to somewhere

:24:31.:24:37.

special. Kristina, I don't have to say too much. You know, welcome to

:24:37.:24:41.

Priscilla. Let's go. This week is a wonderful opportunity for Kristina

:24:41.:24:48.

to come into my world. Kristina, I'm ready. I can't believe my eyes.

:24:48.:24:58.
:24:58.:25:00.

Dressed for the occasion, to tango. I just looked at him... There's

:25:00.:25:06.

someone I want you to meet. Priscilla. Never seen anything as

:25:06.:25:11.

camp as that.: she'll get fun, feathers, frocks and tango.

:25:11.:25:18.

I hope she has fun. Dancing the tango, Jason Donovan

MUSIC: I Will Survive APPLAUSE

:27:01.:27:07.

Well, there they are! Standing ovation. Oh, I tell you, that was

:27:07.:27:16.

wonderful. Come here! Come here! Absolutely great. Wonderful. Thank

:27:16.:27:21.

you. Oh! I was trying to remember, I saw you in that show dressed up

:27:21.:27:28.

as a woman. Did you, Bruce? Yes, I thought it was Dame Edna! Bruno?

:27:28.:27:32.

Jason, you will more than survive, you will thrive. Look at you,

:27:32.:27:40.

strong, powerful, aggressive, driving and then camp as Christmas,

:27:40.:27:50.
:27:50.:27:50.

brilliantly back into character, takesing us to a fantastic ending.

:27:50.:27:56.

Fan-tas-tic! What about that? Yes, I think I can

:27:56.:28:05.

follow that with three sill billions stu-pen-dous.

:28:05.:28:11.

I'll call you the midwife because you keep delivering!

:28:11.:28:16.

Good one! That's a great one. Alesha? Incredible tango with a

:28:16.:28:25.

twist. Kristina, so clever, Jason keep blowing me away, well done.

:28:25.:28:31.

Kristina was spot on, spot on. you go. Be proud! Thank you so much.

:28:31.:28:39.

Thank you. Wow! That was fantastic. Amazing.

:28:39.:28:44.

Audley's left his high heels over there on stage!

:28:44.:28:49.

About a size 70! Strictly leading man, Strictly

:28:49.:28:53.

Broadway special, this is home from home for you, isn't it? Look, the

:28:53.:28:57.

audience just drive you every night and people at home, for all their

:28:57.:29:02.

support, has been absolutely amazing, but I have to say,

:29:02.:29:06.

Kristina's choreography tonight was spot on in terms of the change of

:29:06.:29:12.

character, you know, it's trying to find the theme in the song, but I'm

:29:12.:29:15.

amazed. Thank you. Thank you so much. Top of the leaderboard for

:29:15.:29:19.

two weeks, do you think you did enough to do it again? I don't know.

:29:19.:29:29.
:29:29.:29:42.

The scores are in! Time to get the 36 out of 40! It's looking like it

:29:42.:29:49.

might be a hat trick! Call when the lines open later in the show if you

:29:49.:29:55.

want the boy from oz to survive into next week and dance again! In

:29:55.:29:58.

tomorrow's result shows, we'll see the second couple leave the

:29:58.:30:03.

competition. Don't worry yet, still two star turns to come, Chelsee and

:30:03.:30:07.

Harry, but will they bring the house down? Let's find out, brutey.

:30:07.:30:13.

We'll find out, Tess. Don't worry. Next up, it's Chelsee Healey and

:30:13.:30:23.
:30:23.:30:29.

Now, Chelsee is very young and trendy. She told me she went to see

:30:29.:30:39.

that wonderful mblgal, Wicked! I said how was it? She said Wicked!

:30:39.:30:46.

She just kept on. Wicked! Now, I can't stop myself! Here they are in

:30:46.:30:49.

training. Before the show I was feeling very

:30:49.:30:57.

nervous and my legs like jelly. came out and it was full on. Calm

:30:57.:31:03.

down, dear! I think that I do get excited and it make most me lose

:31:03.:31:08.

control. So I do agree. I put my all into it, so I felt on a high

:31:08.:31:16.

after. This week it is Broadway Week, so we are doing the ch-cha.

:31:16.:31:22.

My gran loves the show and loves Pasha, so I thought I would invite

:31:22.:31:27.

her to training. I do quite like him. 7 I'm going

:31:27.:31:34.

for it. It was great to find out that her grandmother loves to dance.

:31:34.:31:41.

Now I need to keep up with the grandmothers! She is better than me.

:31:41.:31:47.

I have never, ever not once seen my gran dance properly, but she pulled

:31:47.:31:53.

it off. She was fabulous. Now I can't wait it show her the dance on

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:05.

Saturday night. You're my favourite! Dancing the

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:32:15.:33:47.

khaHcha -cha it is Chelsee Healey What happened? That was wonderful!

:33:47.:33:50.

Magnificent. There you are, Chelsee. Lovely,

:33:50.:33:57.

darling. Look at them, they adore you, that was Wicked! I can't stop

:33:57.:34:03.

myself! Right, Craig? Your timing, energy and spirit of that is

:34:03.:34:10.

absolutely fantastic! However... Oh,? It is very haphazard, very hit

:34:10.:34:19.

and miss and just too disco, sadly. She said that was OK! Len? I've

:34:19.:34:24.

just written down you need to take more attention to the details of

:34:24.:34:28.

the dance, but what I love, you come out and you give it some welly.

:34:28.:34:34.

You don't mess about. You come out and go for it. Just work on some,

:34:34.:34:43.

you know, you have a step called the Cuban greats and lovely strong

:34:43.:34:50.

footwork and Pasha, she is fidingling about. You know what I'm

:34:50.:34:56.

saying? Yes. Chelsee so close to being a great

:34:56.:34:59.

cha-cha-cha, no-one can deny that you come out and sell the dance,

:34:59.:35:04.

but the guys are right, you have to tighten up a few little things and

:35:04.:35:12.

you are a joy to dance. I love watching you! Bruno? Chelsee focus

:35:12.:35:16.

on the positive, the cha-cha-cha is cheeky, saucey and playful. You

:35:16.:35:26.
:35:26.:35:27.

have all of that, you little tease! Right, get off quick! Pasha, you

:35:27.:35:31.

are doing a marvellous job. Up you go, there.

:35:31.:35:40.

It was tricky! Come on, my little darling. What a night, Chelsee.

:35:40.:35:45.

Alesha said you sold it and you are a joy to watch. Do you reckon that

:35:45.:35:51.

your gran is proud? I hope so. Is she watching? She is there.

:35:51.:35:55.

Pasha, you turneded in another stunning front of house performance.

:35:55.:36:05.
:36:05.:36:20.

What do you think of her? I think Yes! 30 out of 40. A great score.

:36:20.:36:24.

Look at those legs going. I guess that means you're happy with that.

:36:24.:36:34.
:36:34.:36:36.

The phone lines are opening later, you will get to have your say

:36:36.:36:42.

shortly. Back to you, Bruce. Finally, it is Harry Judd and his

:36:42.:36:47.

partner, Aliona. Come on, Harry. Let's have it, Harry. Now, Harry

:36:48.:36:53.

said to me earlier, he was dancing to a song from the musical, Grease.

:36:53.:37:02.

I said oh, Tell Me More, Tell Me More! Yes? Right! Oh, the last one.

:37:02.:37:09.

Here they are in training. When we came down the stairs at the

:37:09.:37:16.

beginning of the show, I saw Tom and Dudley at the front of the

:37:16.:37:23.

seating. I had to concentrate on Aliona and really concentrate.

:37:23.:37:28.

You could be fantastic. If you swing the camera around that

:37:28.:37:34.

way, you will see why it is hard for me to be interviewed.

:37:34.:37:44.
:37:44.:37:44.

Everyone wanted to be a T-Bird once in their life. When I was 16 I

:37:44.:37:51.

auditioned to be a T-Bird but I didn't get that, so now is my

:37:51.:38:00.

chance I tri that Daniel Gimeno- Traver is a big -- I think that

:38:00.:38:10.
:38:10.:38:12.

John Travolta is a big Strictly fan! I left Harry a note to help

:38:12.:38:17.

him come with mow and get in character.

:38:17.:38:26.

, "Come prepared, Aliona .". I never thought I would be doing a

:38:26.:38:32.

jie pretending to be Danny Zuko, but I'm doing Grease and now I know

:38:32.:38:42.
:38:42.:38:42.

how John Travolta felt. Dancing the jive, Harry Judd and

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 180 seconds

:38:52.:40:29.

There they go again! Look at them. Harry, look! Did you get that after

:40:29.:40:35.

a drum solo? Never! The last four routines have been incredible. Len,

:40:35.:40:42.

what did you think of Harry? Larry, I'm impressed. Lovely sharp kicks

:40:42.:40:46.

and flicks. I would have liked a little less messing about, if I'm

:40:46.:40:50.

honest, but overall, I tell you what, I'm very impressed, and

:40:50.:40:57.

that's your best dance. Well done. Aliona, what you are doing with

:40:57.:41:02.

this guy is marvellous. Alesha? Yes, there was a lot of

:41:02.:41:08.

messing about, but I liked it. Harry, it is so good to see you

:41:08.:41:12.

letting go and having fun. When you were driving you were right on the

:41:12.:41:17.

money. I have nothing bad it say. Now we know at that Alesha like as

:41:17.:41:24.

bit of messing about. Bruno? All growsed up, leather

:41:24.:41:30.

pants, rippling muscles and action- packed expressions, I almost hate

:41:30.:41:40.
:41:40.:41:43.

you! But... A very good performance! Thank you! Be careful

:41:43.:41:50.

of Bruno in the bar, darling! Harry, you have finaly arrived.

:41:50.:41:57.

What about that ?! Was that it? That's enough. From him that is

:41:57.:42:07.

great praise. Off you go, it was wonderful. Wonderful! APPLAUSE

:42:07.:42:12.
