Last weekend our stars Keith they all run regards to Broadway. It was

:00:12.:00:19.

the feel-good hit of the year. Razzle-dazzle. For some, life was a

:00:19.:00:26.

cabaret. You put the show in showbusiness. The critics raved.

:00:26.:00:33.

Others were panned. Cold sponge. And a leading lady was made to look

:00:33.:00:40.

like an ass. Like applauding you'll. One couple received a wake-up call

:00:40.:00:46.

they didn't want to hear. The curtain fell. This week it is back

:00:46.:00:53.

to ballroom basics for our 12 remaining stars. Know where to run.

:00:53.:01:00.

Nowhere to hide. I am not boasting. It is getting dirty. On the

:01:00.:01:06.

dancefloor I'm roasting. But we will clean up tonight. This is

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

:01:16.:01:56.

:03:13.:03:14.

problem. She said, Hallowe'en is You missed it! Anyway, don't worry

:03:14.:03:22.

about it, but at least she spoke to me. Last week breakfast presenter

Dan Lobb became toast and now there are 12 couples left dancing for

they all laugh. You're in show business now. Eyes and teeth, eyes

:05:21.:05:31.

and teeth. Come on! Not you, Robbie. You are fine. I flipped at one end.

:05:31.:05:36.

Sorry. Tonight power couples will be dancing their socks off. Our

:05:36.:05:39.

judges will score the routines and they will be ranked on the

:05:39.:05:43.

leaderboard. The scores will then be combined with the votes from the

:05:43.:05:48.

viewers. Another couple must leave the competition. If you are a

:05:48.:05:53.

digital viewer, press the red button for live commentary, we have

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:05.

Karen Hardy and Kelly Brook. He plenty of digest of biscuits!

:06:05.:06:10.

digesting of biscuits. Our first couple is Jason Donovan and

:06:10.:06:20.
:06:20.:06:24.

Jason is doing the paso doble and he has been wearing a matador out

:06:24.:06:29.

fit all the time to get into character. This is true, even in

:06:29.:06:37.

the supermarket. Is that right? That's right. There for two hours.

:06:37.:06:42.

One shopper said, where on earth do you find the time? He said, while

:06:42.:06:52.
:06:52.:07:05.

I should have stuck with you lot. My performance last week, I have to

:07:05.:07:10.

say I was overwhelmed with the judges. Even Len had a big, cheesy

:07:10.:07:14.

smile on his face. I will call you the midwife because you keep

:07:14.:07:21.

delivering. I am blown away that we have become top of the leaderboard

:07:21.:07:24.

three weeks to arrive. Regardless of the scores, which were

:07:24.:07:32.

phenomenal, this week I am digging deeper to maintain that. This week,

:07:32.:07:36.

Christine and I are doing the paso doble. It is proving to be a big

:07:36.:07:43.

challenge. I am confused. It is the first routine I haven't felt 100%

:07:43.:07:50.

like I have nailed it. Help me with the dance, I have decided to

:07:50.:08:00.
:08:00.:08:17.

Kristina? I have lunch with you and we discussed our routine. And I'm

:08:17.:08:25.

getting some food and some butter. Kristina, come here. What are you

:08:26.:08:29.

wearing? My matador is an interesting role, it has put a

:08:29.:08:33.

smile on my face after a difficult week. But it isn't one of my best

:08:34.:08:43.
:08:44.:08:44.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:08:44.:10:26.

Dancing the paso doble, Jason How about that? What about it? What

:10:26.:10:36.
:10:36.:10:40.

Take another foul. They loved that. Jason, congratulations. What a

:10:40.:10:45.

wonderful weeks' training you have had. It has been tough. It was a

:10:45.:10:51.

difficult birth. Take a breather so it is a good time to welcome our

:10:51.:11:00.

fabulous singers, Dave Arch and his wonderful orchestra. And on the

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

mandolin, well done. Not forgetting the judges, welcome. That's enough.

:11:10.:11:15.

The standard of last week's judging even raised the eyebrows of our

:11:15.:11:19.

judges or at least it would have done if it wasn't for all of that

:11:19.:11:29.
:11:29.:11:33.

Botox! He can't move. Craig couldn't move... I would like a

:11:33.:11:40.

picture of that. Len, start us off. The first thing I look at in the

:11:40.:11:46.

paso doble is the buttocks. If your buttocks are firm, your posture

:11:46.:11:50.

will be good and I must say, I had a good look around your buttocks

:11:50.:11:55.

and they were firm and beautiful. Let me tell you, you got the

:11:56.:12:00.

performance but you lacked the technique. It looked great... It is

:12:00.:12:05.

the truth. You look great when you were standing still. You really did.

:12:05.:12:13.

But the twists and turns were not good. It wasn't your best dance.

:12:13.:12:19.

But there you are, you did your best. Just think of your buttocks.

:12:19.:12:24.

You would agree with a lot of that? It has been a tough week. It has

:12:24.:12:29.

been a difficult birth. Alesha? thought it was another confident

:12:29.:12:35.

performance. We can't take that away from you. I felt you were a

:12:36.:12:40.

little unsure, I could feel that from you. It wasn't your strongest.

:12:40.:12:45.

Still good, but I felt like most of the character of the dance was

:12:45.:12:49.

projected in your face. I wanted in equal balance between technique and

:12:49.:12:53.

passion. You can't deny that. You lit up the room and you create an

:12:53.:12:56.

atmosphere and it was a great performance, but not your best so

:12:56.:13:06.

far. Too long in the supermarket! Bruno? Jason... You try to make a

:13:06.:13:11.

big meal out of his paso doble and you got indigestion. The face

:13:11.:13:14.

looked like you were tuning -- during the scenery, but the feet

:13:15.:13:23.

were off timing. A lot of it, you were not on top of it. Losing the

:13:23.:13:31.

timing again on a Queen song. It was not your best performance.

:13:31.:13:38.

Craig? You need to keep your shoulders down at all times,

:13:38.:13:41.

particularly in lunges and particularly when you take

:13:41.:13:46.

Kristina's weight. You tend to do that when you take her weight. You

:13:46.:13:50.

need to follow through all the lines you create. You created the

:13:50.:13:54.

line and then it ended rather than following through. You were lifting

:13:54.:13:59.

your knees too high. A real shame, actually, because the intention was

:13:59.:14:04.

there. I agree with all those comments. That is good to know.

:14:04.:14:14.
:14:14.:14:26.

Taking it all on board. It still Come on, Jase. Jason's passionate

:14:26.:14:30.

paso. You gave it all. Len said it wasn't your best dance. Do you

:14:30.:14:35.

agree? Well, it's been a tough week. I think all of us have felt quite

:14:35.:14:42.

fatigued this week and I think... Nancy is saying yes. It's been a

:14:42.:14:46.

whirlwind for us. All the judges' comments were absolutely fair. It's

:14:46.:14:50.

a very different dance than I have done so far. But next week's

:14:50.:14:54.

another week and we will give it 100%, as we have done in the last

:14:54.:14:58.

four weeks. I don't doubt it, Jason. Of course, you have been in

:14:58.:15:04.

character... If we are here! have been in character all week,

:15:04.:15:10.

has he left the building yet, this character? I don't know actually.

:15:10.:15:15.

The moustache has definitely left the building building, that's

:15:15.:15:25.
:15:25.:15:41.

27 out of 40. Not your strongest score. But as I say, I think fair

:15:41.:15:45.

comments and next week's another week. Onwards and upwards. Dancing

:15:45.:15:50.

to Queen, a member of Queen in the audience, did that add to pressure?

:15:50.:15:53.

I hope we did Brian's song and Queen's song justice. I think we

:15:54.:15:58.

did. I think so, what do you think? APPLAUSE. I think so. All right,

:15:58.:16:05.

jot down the number. Lines open later in the show, if you want

:16:05.:16:08.

Jason to be dancing again next week. Don't call until we let you know

:16:08.:16:13.

lines are open, your vote won't count and you maybe charged. The

:16:13.:16:17.

couple with the lowest combined scores and votes will be leaving

:16:17.:16:20.

the competition. One down, plenty more rippers to go, right sport! We

:16:20.:16:27.

are going to spoil you tonight. Yes, we are, was that ripers or

:16:27.:16:36.

knickers? Now, for our next couple Alex Jones and her partner, James.

:16:36.:16:41.

From The One Show, lovely Alex. Lovely girl. Tonight they're doing

:16:41.:16:45.

the rumba and it's a dance of love where the man woos the woman.

:16:46.:16:51.

Before the show started Alex said to me I am going to get wooed

:16:51.:16:56.

tonight, I said looking at that costume I think you are going to be

:16:56.:17:04.

very wooed. Who put that Jonathan Ross joke in my autocue?! Well,

:17:04.:17:13.

don't do it! Heads will woll. Training, here they are in

:17:13.:17:20.

training! Last week we were both over the

:17:20.:17:23.

moon with the performance. For me you are the most improved dancer,

:17:23.:17:27.

it was wonderful. We were third on the leaderboard after Saturday's

:17:27.:17:31.

show and I have recorded it. I don't want to be negative, but it

:17:31.:17:35.

may not happen again. I freeze- framed it a couple of times on

:17:35.:17:38.

Sunday to see how it looked. Nice! Who would have thought it?

:17:38.:17:46.

Definitely not pls James -- not James. We made a good cat

:17:46.:17:55.

impression. Alex Jones, let's get ready to rumba! Think sexily.

:17:55.:17:59.

actually dreading this week because everybody says it means being sexy,

:17:59.:18:07.

which I am not that into. He is an amazing dancer and he is very sexy

:18:07.:18:11.

when he dances, but will I feel sexy? No, because I can't dance the

:18:11.:18:21.
:18:21.:18:30.

rumba. Tomorrow when I see you I # I want you to be true

:18:31.:18:39.

# I just wanna make love to you... I tried, I just hope sexiness is in

:18:39.:18:47.

the eye of the beholder. Dancing the rumba, Alex Jones and

:18:47.:18:57.
:18:57.:18:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:18:57.:20:43.

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Hello, look out! Wonderful, James.

:20:43.:20:48.

My darling, that was lovely. That was so lovely. Really affected me.

:20:48.:20:56.

I didn't know lace curtains could be so sexy. Right, Alesha, darling.

:20:56.:20:59.

Firstly, you are sexy, so we will forget about that little thing. The

:20:59.:21:03.

beginning section was beautiful, so romantic. Throughout the dance I

:21:03.:21:06.

thought you had nice arms, nice control. The The only thing with

:21:06.:21:10.

you is you play it a little safe. I think you are so much better than

:21:10.:21:14.

you think. The only way to grow is to take risks, just go for it. Push

:21:14.:21:22.

it next time, OK. But well done. Very encouraging. It really was.

:21:22.:21:30.

Bruno. Alex, you look sinfully sexy. I tell you, we - everybody should

:21:30.:21:36.

be gasping for air after this. But you were so demure and he is tapbt.

:21:36.:21:40.

-- hesitant. You have to get into it, especially on the hips. You

:21:40.:21:46.

never use them to the full extent. You never went for him really with

:21:46.:21:49.

passion and sex appeal. But you have to play it, my darling. You

:21:49.:21:56.

really have to. You have got everything anybody would wish for.

:21:56.:22:06.
:22:06.:22:06.

Use it! If he does that again I should move

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

back. Craig? Sexless, cold and stiff. Hold on a minute. Is that

:22:16.:22:26.

it? AUDIENCE: Boo! There was no hip action whatsoever. You spent four

:22:26.:22:31.

counts of eight just on your knees. There wasn't a lot. The public seem

:22:31.:22:41.
:22:41.:22:45.

to like it. APPLAUSE. Let them decide, darling. Oh, let

:22:45.:22:53.

them decide, darling! Len, was he talking to you? The public judge

:22:54.:22:59.

mainly on effectuatity. We spend a lifetime watching and teaching so

:22:59.:23:04.

our criteria are different to the public. For me, as a performance it

:23:04.:23:08.

was good. But there was too much on the floor, for me. Bar after bar

:23:08.:23:12.

before she got up. There was a lack of hip action, I am not saying it

:23:12.:23:17.

was a terrible dance, because it wasn't. It had romance and you

:23:17.:23:22.

looked absolutely stunning. However, I would have liked to have seen a

:23:22.:23:28.

little bit more content for me. Overall, good job. Well done, off

:23:29.:23:34.

you go both of you. APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. There they go, Alex and

:23:34.:23:40.

James. Come on, darling. It was a

:23:40.:23:45.

ravishing rumba. We all thought so up here, right? Craig was a bit

:23:45.:23:49.

harsh. Do you have you have overcome your fear of being sexy?

:23:49.:23:57.

Obviously not! I mean, you know, I just... I tried. I think you are

:23:57.:24:01.

fabulously sexy in that jumpsuit. You look fine. The rumba is the

:24:01.:24:05.

dance of love. Who were you imagining you were dancing with?

:24:05.:24:10.

Me! What do you mean? When you are out there, I don't know, you can't

:24:10.:24:16.

think of a lot. I was just looking at James. Can I also quickly say

:24:16.:24:20.

probably on behalf of all the professional dancers here it would

:24:20.:24:23.

be nice if the judges stopped commenting on our choreography,

:24:23.:24:26.

also we have been in the business a long, long time and we know what we

:24:26.:24:32.

are doing. I know what is best for Alex. It might be best - yeah,

:24:32.:24:42.
:24:42.:25:00.

25, not a bad score. I think the four is ridiculous. Take that up

:25:00.:25:05.

with Craig later on. Please be quiet! Call later if you thought

:25:05.:25:08.

Alex was wonderful tonight and you would like to see her back on the

:25:09.:25:13.

floor next Saturday. One thing's for sure all our stars want to keep

:25:13.:25:18.

dancing and stay in the competition. Thank you, Anton. Your votes will

:25:18.:25:21.

be vital. Back to you, Bruce. For our next couple, Rory Bremner

:25:22.:25:31.
:25:32.:25:33.

and his partner, Erin. APPLAUSE. Popular man. I noticed Rory staring

:25:33.:25:40.

at me during rehearsals. I said to him, are you studying the

:25:40.:25:45.

mannerisms of the legend that that has become Bruce foresite,

:25:45.:25:49.

improving -- Forsythe, improving your impression of me? He said no,

:25:49.:25:53.

your flies are open. Are they all right now?

:25:53.:26:02.

Saturday was one of the best nights of my life, certainly the best

:26:02.:26:07.

dancing night. I was so happy. best dance, well done, Rory. Quick

:26:07.:26:12.

step is your dance. Next to the glitterball Alesha's smile is the

:26:12.:26:19.

brightest thing on the dance floor. This week we will be dancing the

:26:19.:26:23.

cha-cha-cha. It could be a bit of a cha-cha-challenge. It's going to be

:26:23.:26:29.

fun, exciting, sexy, flamboyant. Come on. Are you talking about me?

:26:29.:26:35.

Yes. We have work to do. Star date Tuesday, Erin's mission continues

:26:35.:26:40.

to transform me into a sex God. We all know that I am a middle-aged

:26:40.:26:45.

Scotsman. You are going against the habits of a lifetime. I have to

:26:45.:26:50.

keep telling Erin she is fighting 50 years as self-consciousness. It

:26:50.:26:53.

might surprise to you hear I am quite shy being me. It's not an

:26:53.:26:59.

impression I do very well. I must be a terrible lover. She continues

:26:59.:27:07.

to maintain when she tells me to be butch, I am camp. Did that not do

:27:07.:27:13.

it for you? I am wired wrong, you press the button you get camp.

:27:13.:27:23.

bit more butch. I said I am doing cha-cha, and he went hell! Bruno,

:27:23.:27:31.

this one is for you. Dancing the cha-cha-cha, Rory

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:27:41.:29:33.

Well done! Let's hear it. That was great. Bruno? For you are like a

:29:33.:29:39.

cocky Rooster! Very, very funny, but you have to be careful because

:29:39.:29:44.

you have to take the steps on the ball of your feet. That gets the

:29:44.:29:50.

correct hip action and you lost it a couple of times, but very funny.

:29:50.:29:59.

Entertainment. Craig? Gauche, Gorky. Looked uncomfortable doing this

:29:59.:30:04.

dance and it was largely due to your hair replacement and flat-

:30:04.:30:14.
:30:14.:30:17.

Very different dances and I think you have found it difficult. Yes.

:30:17.:30:22.

Len? You are like the government, there is a lot going on and not all

:30:22.:30:29.

of it is good. I like the New York section and I thought you were

:30:29.:30:34.

crisp. By and large you kept on time, especially when you were

:30:34.:30:44.
:30:44.:30:45.

flaunting yourself along the right Unfortunately the dire rating

:30:45.:30:50.

wasn't my cup of tea. The rest of it I found OK. -- just a rating.

:30:50.:30:55.

Alesha? Your work ethic is brilliant and you always commit.

:30:55.:30:59.

That is all your professional dancer can ask of you. I thought it

:30:59.:31:05.

was entertaining and I enjoyed it so well done. Well done. You are a

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:20.

Shimmying up the stairs! A cha-cha, no one can say you didn't throw

:31:20.:31:26.

yourself into that. We are the government, but we are a coalition.

:31:26.:31:33.

Those hits. They told the truth out there. I have lost a stone. I have

:31:33.:31:38.

a lot a lot of Stone's! A stone here. You are going for it every

:31:38.:31:44.

week. Thank you, what are you doing after the show? Will the judges

:31:44.:31:54.
:31:54.:32:19.

It is worth a vote, what do you reckon? If you want Rory to dance

:32:19.:32:22.

to the music again next week. Lines will be open after all of the

:32:22.:32:29.

brilliant couples have performed. Now for our next couple, Audley

:32:29.:32:39.
:32:39.:32:41.

Now then, Len ask me earlier what chance Audley would be doing

:32:41.:32:45.

tonight. I said he will be doing the foxtrot. Len said is that

:32:45.:32:50.

because it is elegant and for sophisticated? Eyes at no it is

:32:50.:32:55.

because he wants to and who will stop in? Any time you like,

:32:55.:33:05.
:33:05.:33:07.

Last weekend, dancing, I had a little hiccup. From the waist up

:33:07.:33:11.

your a joyful and full of verve. From the waist down we have to get

:33:11.:33:20.

a little bit better. Today I tripped over my feet. I want to

:33:20.:33:23.

lose two stone in weight. Keep me on for as long as you want to keep

:33:23.:33:29.

me on, I will keep dancing. This week I am doing a foxtrot. This

:33:29.:33:35.

will be more challenging. You're not a boxer now, you are a dancer.

:33:35.:33:41.

My feet, my feet, I have nightmares about rise and fall. I might have

:33:41.:33:46.

to give you a ballet lesson. The footwork in foxtrot has to be foot

:33:46.:33:53.

on -- spot on. I don't like ballet. No way am I doing ballet. I am a

:33:53.:34:03.
:34:03.:34:05.

boxer, we don't do ballet. Good, OK. I actually had a great time.

:34:05.:34:10.

really did benefit him hugely. Gorgeous! Proper respect. You are

:34:10.:34:15.

making me look bad, get out! I think it helped me be more graceful

:34:15.:34:19.

and more elegant. It definitely added something to my dancing and

:34:19.:34:25.

it will add something to my boxing. The foxtrot, the foxtrot, what

:34:25.:34:33.

should it be? Audley Harrison will do it gracefully. Dancing the

:34:33.:34:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:34:52.:36:22.

They are pleased with you, Natalie is pleased with you, I am pleased

:36:22.:36:30.

with you, that was wonderful. You went around, it was lovely.

:36:30.:36:35.

Congratulations. I don't care what they say. Craig? I am seeing some

:36:35.:36:45.
:36:45.:36:45.

improvement. But it doesn't need a swing, Sway, the pivot turns were a

:36:45.:36:51.

little bit mean. A little bit of filling going on. But I really and

:36:51.:37:00.

truly liked it. Well done, Audley. I told you so. Len? I like this

:37:00.:37:04.

week when there are so many different dances. For problem is,

:37:04.:37:08.

some dances are more challenging than others and it is trying to get

:37:08.:37:12.

a balance. You have just done a foxtrot, which is probably the

:37:12.:37:16.

hardest technically to do. I am telling you this, I am sitting here

:37:17.:37:25.

giving you a standing ovation, well done. I can't believe I agree with

:37:25.:37:30.

you all! Alesha, don't spoil it. love that you rise to the challenge.

:37:30.:37:35.

This stance is so difficult. You can see the concentration in your

:37:35.:37:39.

face. The more relaxed you are, the more relaxed we are and it becomes

:37:39.:37:42.

more enjoyable to watch, but you did a good job and you should be

:37:43.:37:52.

proud. Bruno? I am going to get through this. You lost it a couple

:37:52.:37:59.

of times, but covered it very well. It is very hard. You look almost

:37:59.:38:04.

very like, but it is difficult to pass through. It is the most

:38:04.:38:11.

difficult dance and you did as well as you could. Natalie, you did a

:38:11.:38:21.
:38:21.:38:29.

marvellous job. You really did. Off Come on, Audley. There you go.

:38:30.:38:35.

dress came undone. Wardrobe malfunction! Are you safe? I hope

:38:35.:38:43.

so. Craig liked it. The most difficult ballroom dance. From

:38:43.:38:49.

Boxing de ballet, did it help? Definitely. The comments really

:38:49.:38:53.

helped me, my knee was playing up and I didn't think I would get them

:38:53.:38:57.

back. But it was the right time. The best we have danced. When it

:38:57.:39:04.

counted. What I love about you, you are relishing this whole experience.

:39:04.:39:09.

It is great, it is a tough challenge, but having a lot of fun.

:39:09.:39:19.
:39:19.:39:38.

25 out of 40. What is next week? Break dancing? I couldn't break

:39:38.:39:48.
:39:48.:39:54.

dance if I tried. Punch in this Still to come tonight, Harry,

:39:54.:40:03.

Russell and Robbie. And a luscious ladies, Holly, Lulu, Chelsee and

:40:03.:40:10.

Anita. Two words, come on! Our next couple is Nancy Dell'Olio

:40:10.:40:20.
:40:20.:40:24.

and her part that... Wait for it! Nancy told me she is determined to

:40:24.:40:29.

improve her dancing. She has actually been taking tips from a

:40:29.:40:34.

previous contestants. I said what a good idea, who were you taking tips

:40:34.:40:40.

from? She said Ann Widdecombe. She is here tonight, hello! How are

:40:40.:40:48.

you? Lovely to see you. It is a pity you missed Edwina. And Edwina

:40:48.:40:54.

is here! What has surprised! I told you, Edwina, I said you wouldn't

:40:54.:40:58.

get very far in this competition because you couldn't wiggle your

:40:58.:41:03.

bottom. I remember you saying to me, why is that? I said we all know you

:41:03.:41:11.

lost your seat years ago. A political joke, think about it! A

:41:11.:41:19.

bit of satire. Forget it. Here they are in training. Political satire,

:41:19.:41:28.

Never again. Here they are in Last week I had a very bad

:41:28.:41:32.

performance. I loved the music and the costume and my acting and my

:41:32.:41:40.

dance. It was very well received. Down in the bottom spot, Nancy and

:41:41.:41:49.

Anton du Beke. I am so happy that the viewers kept me in. The paso

:41:49.:41:54.

doble is the dance of the bullfighter. The man being the

:41:54.:41:59.

matador and the Lady being the Cape. I have put together a little

:41:59.:42:03.

surprise. I thought we could go somewhere that will conjure up the

:42:03.:42:08.

feelings of the paso doble and the matador. I think he is probably

:42:08.:42:14.

taking meted Madrid. You will love this. Where else could be the place

:42:14.:42:24.
:42:24.:42:24.

to get into spirit? Come on. This is not Madrid! I will be right

:42:24.:42:32.

behind you. About 40 paces. Maybe I will shut the gate. I don't know

:42:32.:42:36.

why you're doing this to me. think you will get the spirit of

:42:36.:42:40.

the dance. I don't want to get the spirit of the dance. You must be

:42:40.:42:47.

joking. You are doing well. Listen, there's no way you can make me

:42:47.:42:57.
:42:57.:42:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:42:57.:44:56.

Dancing the paso doble, Nancy At last you smiled, Anton at the

:44:56.:45:02.

end. That was wonderful. Nice to see you. That was fantastic.

:45:02.:45:09.

Absolutely. Were you the cloak or the bull? What you think? I thought

:45:09.:45:17.

you were the cloak. Why he keep me with my head all the time upside

:45:17.:45:26.

down... There must be a reason, dear. There is a reason. When our

:45:26.:45:31.

head upside down we get more oxygen, more blood. He thinks it's a way to

:45:31.:45:37.

improve. He never thought of that, did he? Oxygen. I am going to start

:45:37.:45:45.

with her upside down next week. It might help the dance.

:45:45.:45:53.

That was marvellous. Sorry to keep you waiting, judges. Perhaps it's

:45:53.:45:58.

because she's not much good on her feet, she's better on her head.

:45:58.:46:02.

dear! It's an observation. Listen, there was more content. There was

:46:02.:46:07.

more content. You are a game girl. You had that that throw and the

:46:07.:46:11.

feet. I enjoyed it really. A lot going on. It was entertaining. Well

:46:11.:46:17.

done. Lovely, thank you, Len. I am I am glad we waited for you.

:46:17.:46:23.

Alesha? There's something about you, dancy. I am in-- Nancy. I am

:46:23.:46:28.

intrigued every time you step on the floor. You were a bit of a rag

:46:28.:46:35.

doll being thrown about by Anton, but I loved it. It was great.

:46:35.:46:39.

now then. Fabulous with your legs in the air, especially when you are

:46:39.:46:43.

wrapped around him like cling film. I wish you stayed there all the way

:46:43.:46:49.

through. You were trying to count and you still went off time. It's

:46:49.:46:53.

almost impossible to do! How can you actually count and go off time?

:46:53.:46:58.

But great effort. Not quite a successful as it could have been,

:46:58.:47:08.

but great to watch. It was a great effort. Finish us off, Craig?

:47:08.:47:16.

like a paso set in Oaklahoma with the amount of skipping going on.

:47:16.:47:22.

Anton, lift-city. Please, one of them might class as a throw but it

:47:22.:47:28.

was full of lifts. They're all a bit of a chuck, if I am honest.

:47:28.:47:32.

Nancy, you messed up after the dip really badly. I understand that was

:47:32.:47:36.

your fault. But I think that secretly there is talent beneath

:47:36.:47:43.

the surface. I think we really need to invest in that.

:47:43.:47:48.

By the way, Anton, I have been dying to ask you this, have you

:47:48.:47:57.

ever danced with a Nancy before? Can I kiss you? Up you go, up the

:47:57.:48:07.
:48:07.:48:18.

Well done, my darling. You stand there. It was close. Does the paso

:48:18.:48:24.

come naturally to you. What sort of a question is that to ask! How did

:48:24.:48:30.

she make the part of the bull look glamorous? Don't you start, Anton!

:48:30.:48:40.
:48:40.:48:40.

She's not the bull! I am the cape. Cape! Bottom two last week. Don't

:48:40.:48:47.

want that in your life again, do you? No. No. We hope not. So close,

:48:47.:48:57.
:48:57.:49:12.

I can't tell you how close that was. Well, 18 out of 40. OK, write this

:49:12.:49:18.

number down, they're going to need you. Call later. I can't tell you

:49:18.:49:26.

how good it was going to be. None of our stars want to have a

:49:26.:49:29.

nightmare tonight - do you know what's happening next week? I have

:49:29.:49:31.

done the number. Who cares about next week, give them the number!

:49:31.:49:36.

Next week is the Strictly Hallowe'en special and who would

:49:36.:49:41.

want to get the chop before that? Not you, Anton. No. Did you give

:49:41.:49:46.

the number. Back to you, Bruce. Our next couple is Lulu and her

:49:46.:49:51.

partner, Brendan. APPLAUSE AND CHEERING.

:49:51.:49:56.

Right, this week they've been getting into the sexy samba. Here

:49:56.:50:06.
:50:06.:50:08.

Last week Lulu and Brendan attempted to raise their game on

:50:08.:50:17.

the dancefloor, quite literally. Illegal lifts will not be tolerated.

:50:17.:50:21.

The look in Craig's eye told me he would have done the same thing.

:50:21.:50:25.

Sometimes you have to break rules to make a routine complete. I am

:50:25.:50:30.

glad we did it. You and me both, baby. Fourth from the bottom, that

:50:30.:50:37.

is progress. This week it's it's samba. I am

:50:37.:50:42.

loving the samba! I think we are going to have more fun. I want to

:50:42.:50:47.

feel that this dance is going only in a positive direction. Wembley,

:50:47.:50:53.

here we come. Exactly. I think Lulu is messing with my mind. How are

:50:53.:50:57.

you doing the most difficult dance in the Latin section, just like

:50:57.:51:01.

that? You know how much you love this dance. Yeah, I love it. Guess

:51:01.:51:06.

what, it's the one dance I always get kicked out of Strictly on.

:51:06.:51:10.

cannot believe that he didn't tell me that there's a curse around the

:51:10.:51:13.

samba, for him. I can't begin to tell you how scared I was about

:51:13.:51:18.

this week. Four times, because of the samba. I am having none of that,

:51:18.:51:21.

we are going forward. I am not going to let him down. We are not

:51:22.:51:29.

going to be out. This curse is over. Let's do, Lulu! Bring it on!

:51:29.:51:39.
:51:39.:51:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:51:40.:53:23.

Dancing the samba, Lulu and Brendan APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Thank you,

:53:23.:53:28.

Lulu and Brendan. What a lovely number. Great fun, it really was.

:53:28.:53:34.

The wonderful number to - oh, thrilled for you, sweetheart.

:53:34.:53:38.

Alesha? As soon as you started dancing I thought yes, samba suits

:53:38.:53:45.

you, full of beans and energy. Good job. That's it. That sums it up.

:53:45.:53:55.

Bruno? Bubbly. A couple of mistakes, though. While you always do it?!

:53:55.:54:04.

Stop doing it. You got caught. it, Lulu. Len? Craig next. I would

:54:04.:54:08.

like to have seen more content. You didn't need that great big run up

:54:08.:54:12.

the stairs, that wasted more time, because this dance did suit you and

:54:12.:54:15.

you did have a bit of bounce action going on. Finally something that

:54:15.:54:25.
:54:25.:54:28.

you appear actually rather better at. A bit of praise. We had one

:54:28.:54:35.

minute and 15 seconds of content, I think that's enough for you, Lulu.

:54:35.:54:41.

Len? Well, I liked the gusto and enthusiasm of the whole affair, and

:54:41.:54:46.

it got in the carnival spirit which is the samba. For me it was a

:54:47.:54:52.

little bit of repetition, that's what I am saying. All you have to

:54:52.:55:01.

do is turn up, keep up and shut up! Like the old days of variety, that

:55:01.:55:11.
:55:11.:55:17.

was. All done. You have all finished. Up you go.

:55:17.:55:22.

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Come on. Lulu got the party started

:55:22.:55:29.

up here. Order, James. OK, Craig said it suited you. Did you find

:55:29.:55:33.

your swing with the samba? I did, I found my rhythm. You enjoyed that.

:55:33.:55:37.

You picked it up a lot quicker in training this week. Yeah, I did.

:55:37.:55:41.

Quite something really. She's messing with my mind. One week it's

:55:41.:55:45.

three weeks and the next week it's a day. She's very good. Good girl,

:55:45.:55:55.
:55:55.:56:10.

25 out of 40. Call this number when phone lines open later if you want

:56:10.:56:16.

the legend that's Lulu to break Brendan's curse and be back on the

:56:16.:56:22.

dancefloor next week. Don't mention the curse of the samba! OK, we

:56:22.:56:31.

still have lots of scrumptious ballroom to come. Anyone hungry for

:56:31.:56:35.

more? Over to you, Bruce. We are hungry for more. I am

:56:35.:56:43.

starving anyway. Next is Holly and her partner, Artem.

:56:43.:56:47.

Last week when Holly danced there was a massive cage on the

:56:47.:56:52.

dancefloor. Do you remember, just here. I said, fancy spending all

:56:52.:56:59.

week rehearsing in a cage. How did you feel? She said sick as a

:56:59.:57:09.
:57:09.:57:10.

Parrott. Pretty Holly! Never mind. Right, here they are in training.

:57:10.:57:14.

Last week Holly proved herself a smooth criminal on the dance floor.

:57:14.:57:19.

Everybody will queue up to join you in jail. This week I am a little

:57:19.:57:24.

low on the ladder and it's going to make me hungrier to impress the

:57:24.:57:31.

judges and get back up the top. waltz is very classical. My idea of

:57:31.:57:35.

dancing is generally around a handbag and now I have to earn

:57:35.:57:39.

elegance and grace. You should not do this, especially holding the

:57:39.:57:45.

pole. Holly hasn't not the natural ladylike ability. We have to work

:57:45.:57:53.

on that. And who better than Queen ofet quit to help Holly work on

:57:53.:58:00.

that. Holly needs to feel she is a Princess. Fluid arms. Gently,

:58:00.:58:06.

gently. Amazing. Artem, why are you giggling? We will have you doing

:58:06.:58:14.

this in a minute. I am going to race you. Now give me a bit of how

:58:14.:58:24.
:58:24.:58:27.

now, brown cow. How now, brown cow. That's very league. That was a --

:58:27.:58:36.

regal. Holly, you are actually beginning to look like a Princess.

:58:36.:58:43.

Wonderful. Artem, I think you need a bit more practice.

:58:43.:58:53.
:58:53.:58:54.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:58:54.:00:42.

Dancing the sreu the Viennese waltz, Holly and Artem, that was great.

:00:42.:00:48.

Lovely atmosphere, well done both of you. Bruno? Great story telling,

:00:49.:00:57.

a 1,000 ways to strike a lamp-post. Very fluid and romantic, but a

:00:57.:01:02.

bit... I can't say that word. You could be amazing, you really have

:01:02.:01:08.

to focus and give it even more. You could be great. You're right, it is

:01:08.:01:14.

there. Craig? A little bit bumpy in places. It could have been a little

:01:14.:01:19.

more extreme. I loved the story telling, you Mr Hand pass just over

:01:19.:01:28.

here, but I thought the whole thing was gorgeous. OK. It was pretty, it

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:01:53.

was light and fluffy. I got fed up Anyway... Once you got in the hold,

:01:53.:02:00.

you must step forward on your heels. Did you not get told that? Yes.

:02:00.:02:06.

was all right, it was light and fluffy and lovely. Alesha?

:02:06.:02:12.

thought you were elegant, beautiful come -- beautiful and composed, you

:02:12.:02:22.
:02:22.:02:29.

Here she comes. The Lady of the ballroom. How much of a lady did

:02:29.:02:34.

you feel out there? A bit of annoyed myself for missing that

:02:34.:02:42.

hand it. It is OK. Live television. Not that we are hard on ourselves.

:02:42.:02:52.
:02:52.:03:07.

Very graceful. This calls are in. - 30 out of 40. It has equalled your

:03:07.:03:16.

top score. Lucky 30. Call if you want our Aussie corker back on the

:03:16.:03:24.

dance floor next week. Sound good? That will do. Go to the website for

:03:24.:03:29.

exclusive training footage and plenty of backstage gossip.

:03:29.:03:39.
:03:39.:03:42.

Time for our next couple, Chelsee Apparently Chelsee is called

:03:43.:03:47.

Chelsee because her parents are big fans of Chelsee Football Club. I

:03:47.:03:53.

said to her, think yourself lucky they weren't fan birds -- fans of

:03:53.:03:59.

Accrington Stanley! Accrington Stanley, come and have your tea.

:03:59.:04:06.

Here they are in training. Last week I was so scared because I

:04:06.:04:14.

didn't feel I was 100% in the head. What I laugh, you come out and give

:04:14.:04:21.

it some welly. A bit too disco. just get too excited. When it is

:04:21.:04:29.

music I like, I can't help myself. I need to calm down. Chelsee's work

:04:29.:04:32.

at Waterloo Road takes a lot of time out of our practice and this

:04:32.:04:37.

week I need to see her. If Chelsee can't come to me, I had better go

:04:37.:04:45.

to Chelsee. Chelsee, he knew what! Difficult to find. Will you have

:04:45.:04:55.
:04:55.:04:56.

some time to practise today? I have It was so good that he could come

:04:56.:05:06.
:05:06.:05:07.

It was even better that I got a bit of time to practise the quickstep.

:05:07.:05:12.

I don't know how Chelsee does it. The Church -- the schedule is

:05:12.:05:21.

pretty tough and we are all rooting Now I have seen how hard she works

:05:21.:05:25.

and I am surprised she has any time and energy at all after she has

:05:25.:05:30.

done the work here to go and dance. I have been crazy bezique this week,

:05:30.:05:35.

but I am hoping the extra rehearsals will pay off. -- crazy

:05:35.:05:44.

busy. Dancing the quickstep, Chelsee he leat and Pasha Kovalev.

:07:34.:07:39.

and Pasha. He got his flight, no problem. What a lovely reception

:07:39.:07:49.
:07:49.:07:49.

you had. Craig. Two words, first class. I like that, that is clever.

:07:49.:07:56.

Len? Pasha, you check in and I tell you this, Chelsee, tomorrow night

:07:56.:08:04.

you will not be checking out. Chelsee, lovely. Alesha? You guys

:08:04.:08:08.

have great chemistry, which is one of the key ingredients. Chelsee,

:08:08.:08:13.

you delivered it, you did a fantastic routine. The only

:08:13.:08:18.

criticism was that it tended to soon, I wanted to see more. Well

:08:18.:08:24.

done. Bruno? Chelsee, the pocket Rocket, is awesome. Higher than you

:08:24.:08:34.
:08:34.:08:45.

can possibly reach. Great. Be proud. Chelsee on Strictly Airlines. First

:08:45.:08:49.

class. You have been so busy with Waterloo Road this week, so few

:08:49.:08:54.

training hours, but you wouldn't know, what is your secret? I am

:08:54.:09:00.

loving it. It is making me... are loving it. Are you impressed

:09:00.:09:04.

with what she can achieve in such a short space of time? It is amazing

:09:04.:09:11.

because she doesn't have time at all. I don't know how that came out.

:09:11.:09:21.
:09:21.:09:38.

You are really good. You are not Well deserved, Chelsee. Well done.

:09:38.:09:48.
:09:48.:09:55.

They are on their feet up here. Call if you don't want Chelsee to

:09:55.:10:00.

disembark here or here. We still have a lot more to come from a

:10:00.:10:04.

wobble run stars. Strictly is flying tonight. Back to you,

:10:04.:10:08.

Captain Bruce. Next tonight it is Harry Judd and

:10:09.:10:18.

his Palmer, Aliona. - partner. After they impressed the judges

:10:18.:10:22.

last week with a built-in jive, that really was good, how would

:10:22.:10:28.

Harry cope with the change of tempo for the warts? Let's find out. --

:10:28.:10:38.
:10:38.:10:39.

Last week was a breakthrough week. Leather-clad, rippling muscles,

:10:39.:10:44.

action-packed. Harry, you have finally arrived. It means a lot to

:10:45.:10:48.

get praise from Craig. But at the same time it means I have to keep

:10:48.:10:56.

working hard and keep the standard high. It is a very old fashioned

:10:56.:11:00.

dance and it is miles away from anything I have done before. In the

:11:01.:11:05.

routine there is a romantic moment. There is a little hand touch and a

:11:05.:11:09.

whisper and a kiss. I have to get my romantic hat on. You have to

:11:09.:11:15.

feel more romantic. I am romantic. But in this danced it is hard.

:11:15.:11:21.

There should be some kind of self- help guide. Why the long face? Not

:11:21.:11:27.

having much luck with the ladies? Never fear, it is time to root with

:11:27.:11:35.

the walnuts. First, find yourself a fine filly. She looks game. Maybe

:11:35.:11:40.

pay the lady a compliment. Your hair looks nice and address his

:11:40.:11:46.

purple. Excellent. Strike while the iron is hot. Would you like to

:11:46.:11:53.

dance? Good. Taking her hand, gently pull the female towards you.

:11:53.:12:02.

And dance. And remember, the man should always lead. That's it, you

:12:02.:12:07.

have cracked it. You have certainly won this lady's heart. Bravo, old

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:17.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:12:17.:13:58.

boy. He Harry Judd and Aliona APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Beautiful.

:13:58.:14:03.

Lovely. That had everything about it, the posture was good. Another

:14:03.:14:08.

good week. Now you are a quick learner, I tell you that. Len?

:14:08.:14:12.

distraught. I tell you what the first half was fantastic. I am

:14:12.:14:19.

telling you, Harry, hold, posture, beautiful footwork. More rise and

:14:19.:14:25.

fall than Jordan jogging. It had everything. Then what do you do?

:14:25.:14:29.

Let's mess it all up, walk up the stairs and whisper in each other's

:14:29.:14:33.

ears. I didn't get it. I didn't get that bit. Why didn't you keep in

:14:33.:14:40.

hold? Listen, I loved it, I thought this is a ten, this is a ten! Oh,

:14:40.:14:46.

Harry, do me a favour. Can I speak. As a celebrity on this show you

:14:46.:14:49.

simply have to get on with the choreography you are given and I am

:14:49.:14:54.

not going to penalise you for the whisper in the ear. You make

:14:54.:14:57.

ballroom dancing look cool. You have your own style and that was

:14:57.:15:03.

exquisite. I worried about the going up the

:15:03.:15:07.

stairs as well. You are a smooth operator. You can whisper in my ear

:15:07.:15:17.

any time. Elegant, poised. The musical phrasing was superb. You

:15:17.:15:25.

got the sway, you were on rising on every bar. The stairs is a question

:15:25.:15:29.

of interpretation. When you take the turn and doing in shadow, that

:15:29.:15:33.

you have to check your lines and your hands. It's a tiny little

:15:33.:15:40.

thing, but superb. Every little beat, almost like the drums. I

:15:40.:15:46.

noticed that myself. Craig? really loved the whispering and the

:15:46.:15:54.

whole story-telling. I think Len, actually, you are wrong. Don't be

:15:54.:16:03.

so stupid! How can you possibly say that? It's getting personal now.

:16:03.:16:07.

was dancing - Harry, it was a ten. I am not saying he didn't. Harry

:16:07.:16:14.

didn't do the choreography. I can only judge what I see and that's

:16:14.:16:21.

what I have to judge. I am not saying it's your fault. Let's

:16:21.:16:26.

practise the shadow together. the whole, I think everybody loved

:16:26.:16:33.

it. Will you behave yourself. It was wonderful, Harry. Aliona, it

:16:33.:16:42.

was great. Off you. APPLAUSE AND CHEERING.

:16:42.:16:48.

Come on, Harry. You smooth operator you. If I had a pound for every

:16:48.:16:54.

time Russell said "I loved it", he did love it. Cheers. Did you love

:16:54.:16:59.

it? I did. I enjoyed myself. I found it the hardest week. How did

:16:59.:17:04.

you find the pace of the waltz? took a while to get into, not until

:17:04.:17:07.

last night, Thursday night, that I started to get the timing and the

:17:07.:17:12.

count and everything. Not an easy dance. Do you reckon on the next

:17:12.:17:16.

McFly tour you are going to step out from behind the drum kit?

:17:16.:17:20.

skipper is here tonight, Tom. I will have to have a word with him.

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:46.

He will be doing the dancing from Yes, Harry, that is the first ten

:17:46.:17:54.

of the series. Wow. How does that feel? I am a bit shocked. I can

:17:54.:18:03.

tell you are shocked. Speechless. Wow. Well deserved. Thank you.

:18:03.:18:08.

call this number later if you want Harry to waltz into next week's

:18:08.:18:13.

show. That sound good to you, Harry? Sounds perfect. All right.

:18:13.:18:17.

Russell, Anita and Robbie are going to let their feet do the talking

:18:17.:18:22.

very soon. Will they be fluent in the

:18:22.:18:26.

ballroom? We have tens up here. Back to you, Bruce. Stop arguing

:18:26.:18:30.

over there, the pair of you. Or I will split you up. The next couple

:18:30.:18:40.

is Anita Dobson and her partner, Robin. Last week Anita did an

:18:40.:18:44.

amazing jive that was full of energy and we were struggling to

:18:44.:18:49.

believe that she really is 62. She told - really, it was fantastic.

:18:49.:18:55.

She told me today Bruce, I have the body of a 30-year-old. I said we

:18:55.:18:59.

all know you have the body of a 30- year-old, but when the series

:18:59.:19:07.

finishes you have got to give Robin back.

:19:07.:19:12.

APPLAUSE. Oh, thank you! And in the same condition as we gave him to

:19:12.:19:22.
:19:22.:19:23.

you. Here they are in training. Last week I really enjoyed

:19:23.:19:30.

performing, it was just bliss. energetic, entertaining. When we

:19:30.:19:32.

finished and the audience were standing up, that was lovely. It

:19:32.:19:37.

was really thrilling for me. would love to see somebody else at

:19:37.:19:40.

62 dance with that much energy. It was fantastic. I don't think

:19:40.:19:44.

there's anybody else that could do that job. This week we are doing

:19:44.:19:50.

the American smooth. I find this dance romantic and very classy.

:19:50.:19:53.

need to feel like a Hollywood movie star. It's going to be great to

:19:53.:19:58.

take it back to the Hollywood era and the epitome of sophistication

:19:58.:20:03.

and elegance. When women dressed up and looked beautiful and men had

:20:03.:20:09.

top hat and tails. Fred and Ginger floating around the silver screen.

:20:09.:20:14.

When I was a little girl I used to watch the movies on a Sunday and

:20:14.:20:19.

think how would it feel to be a move skwreu star? -- movie star?

:20:19.:20:27.

This is a little bit of that magic. The dress was wonderful. The make-

:20:27.:20:31.

up was to die for. Hair, you know, done to a dream. That's how I am

:20:31.:20:37.

imagining myself. From the gentleman at the bar. I am hoping

:20:37.:20:47.
:20:47.:20:50.

this Saturday our Hollywood moment Dancing the American smooth, Anita

:20:50.:21:00.
:21:00.:21:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:21:00.:22:41.

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Lovely. Anita and Robin, well done.

:22:41.:22:47.

We all loved that. You are a revelation, I tell you. Well done.

:22:47.:22:51.

Alesha? This dance fits you so well. You captured the American smooth,

:22:51.:22:56.

the spirit of that really well. Just need to straighten your legs,

:22:56.:22:59.

on occasion they were really bent. Apart from that, you did a

:22:59.:23:02.

brilliant job. The lifts were so daring and you should be proud of

:23:02.:23:10.

yourself. It was a great job. agree. Don't look so scared. Bruno?

:23:10.:23:20.
:23:20.:23:25.

Is it aRita or -- Anita or Rita Haywood? It had the lovely 40s feel.

:23:25.:23:29.

One part was a bit dodgy, but all the rest I liked. Two down, two to

:23:29.:23:33.

go. Craig? There were a couple of little mishaps throughout. But

:23:33.:23:39.

nothing major. You lost body contact quite a lot throughout. But

:23:39.:23:47.

I loved it. It was sophisticated. It was classy. You are a pro.

:23:47.:23:57.

really are. Len? It's the little things I like and you did two heel

:23:57.:24:03.

turns which is which is a technical step and beautiful, up on to the

:24:03.:24:07.

balls of your feet. I like those little touches T had ease, elegance

:24:07.:24:11.

and sophistication and I thought it was fabulous. Well done. There you

:24:11.:24:20.

are. Well done. How are you feeling? Well done, Robin and Anita.

:24:20.:24:26.

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING. Yes, Anita brings the glamour. Are

:24:26.:24:31.

you still shaking? I am. Look at you. She's been so nervous about

:24:31.:24:36.

this dance all day long. How are you feeling now? The same! You can

:24:36.:24:41.

breathe now. You pulled it off, you looked like a movie star, did you

:24:41.:24:48.

feel like one? At moments, yes. Oscar-worthy. You have a great

:24:48.:24:54.

partnership, can you imagine a time when you are not dancing with your

:24:54.:24:59.

Bobby? No. Doesn't want that to happen. I love that you have a

:24:59.:25:03.

little nickname for him. Don't worry, it's not going to happen

:25:03.:25:08.

this week hopefully. Are you going to take that billboard home with

:25:08.:25:18.
:25:18.:25:36.

Brilliant score! Your little face through all of that. Couldn't

:25:36.:25:43.

believe you were getting eights. Thank you! Well done. Call this

:25:43.:25:48.

number later in the show if Anita's American smooth got under your skin

:25:48.:25:51.

and you would love to see her dance again next Saturday. Are you

:25:51.:25:57.

crying? No, no! Just a bit. Remember if you don't want our

:25:57.:26:01.

celebrities to face the terror of missing next weekend's Hallowe'en

:26:01.:26:04.

special, it's going to be good, then you know what to do. Your

:26:04.:26:08.

votes will make all the difference. Your favourites need your votes.

:26:08.:26:17.

Back to you, Bruce. Thank you. Next tonight it's Robbie

:26:17.:26:24.

Savage and his partner, Ola. Very, very popular couple indeed.

:26:24.:26:29.

Robbie is really enjoying the dancing but he told me some of the

:26:29.:26:32.

old football habits are causing him problems. I said what do you mean?

:26:33.:26:38.

He said at the end of the dance I keep trying to swap shirts with Ola.

:26:38.:26:44.

I said, well you be careful, son. If James catches you, he will swap

:26:44.:26:48.

something with you. Punches. He is a strong boy. Anyway, here they are

:26:48.:26:58.
:26:58.:27:02.

Last week was absolutely brilliant. Robbie did a fabulous job again.

:27:02.:27:06.

get 30, I am improving each week and that's all you can ask for.

:27:06.:27:11.

are becoming one of the contenders in this competition. I never

:27:11.:27:17.

thought I would be a contender. All I can do is improve. It shows hard

:27:17.:27:23.

work pays off. To be the best in this competition Robbie's got to

:27:23.:27:30.

sort out his nerves and I have a plan. Match day programmes, half-

:27:30.:27:36.

time dancing with Robbie Savage! Ola thinks it will help my nerves

:27:36.:27:40.

but I think she's the one that will be scared. I am so nervous. Now you

:27:40.:27:44.

show how it feels like for me on Saturday. People think Craig is

:27:44.:27:51.

hard to please but he is a pussy cat compared to 20,000 football

:27:51.:28:01.
:28:01.:28:02.

fans. I am scared they're going to boo us. Me being on the football

:28:02.:28:12.
:28:12.:28:16.

pitch of Reading is the equivalent of Ola being on the dance floor.

:28:16.:28:21.

I have to say I really enjoyed it. First, they didn't boo us. I didn't

:28:21.:28:26.

expect them to cheer. Dancing in front of 20,000 football fans, not

:28:26.:28:36.
:28:36.:28:37.

a problem. Dancing on a Saturday night, terrifying.

:28:37.:28:47.
:28:47.:28:47.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:28:47.:30:30.

Dancing the jive, Robbie Savage and Look at this. I love the bit on the

:30:30.:30:38.

football field, that was marvellous. Well done, well done. You are good

:30:38.:30:42.

at the kicks and flicks. That was his stock in trade. Get out of it.

:30:42.:30:51.

Bruno. Robbie, because you are worth it. I have never seen anybody

:30:51.:30:55.

working the Goldilocks like that. Not since Jerry Hall. -- golden

:30:55.:31:05.
:31:05.:31:06.

locks. Give it to me, Ola! Technically, it wasn't perfect.

:31:06.:31:16.
:31:16.:31:19.

That is an understatement, but I All right. Craig? Sorry to spoil

:31:19.:31:29.
:31:29.:31:29.

the mood. Plodding, kicks and flicks was sloppy. He wasn't

:31:29.:31:34.

pointing his feet. But I absolutely adored the characterisation, I

:31:34.:31:40.

thought you did that brilliantly and you went for it. You certainly

:31:40.:31:50.
:31:50.:31:55.

went for it. Len? Listen, you loved it, the people loved it, I loved it.

:31:55.:32:01.

No problem! Everybody loves it. Alesha? Everything the guys said,

:32:01.:32:06.

the hair fluffing, the thrusting. Your energy was under different

:32:06.:32:10.

level tonight, it was great to see you having such a good time,

:32:10.:32:20.
:32:20.:32:30.

brilliant entertainment, well done. Yes! He shoots, he scores. We loved

:32:30.:32:35.

it, they were on their feet in the ballroom. Did you love that?

:32:35.:32:41.

Craig said, technically not the best, but I just loved it.

:32:41.:32:46.

Brilliant. Your energy was amazing. Have you been surprised by the

:32:46.:32:53.

amount of support you have got from football fans? Incredible. I have

:32:53.:32:57.

to say Ola is a fantastic teacher. Gary Speed is here tonight. Wales

:32:57.:33:07.
:33:07.:33:28.

27 out of 40. Pick up the phones later. If you want to be Robbie to

:33:28.:33:34.

be in the squad for next Saturday's big bull run match. Do you want

:33:34.:33:40.

extra time? In tomorrow night's results show, it is crunch time as

:33:40.:33:44.

a third couple will be leaving. But now, there's a dream performance

:33:45.:33:51.

that you will not want to miss. Time now for our next couple,

:33:51.:34:01.
:34:01.:34:04.

Russell Grant and his partner, By now, Russell was telling me that

:34:04.:34:10.

because he did so well last week, Flavia got him a present. She got

:34:10.:34:14.

him a special tracksuit made with the letter are all over it. When he

:34:14.:34:20.

saw it, he said I can't wear it. He said I don't want to walk past

:34:20.:34:30.
:34:30.:34:33.

people and hear then say look at I thought that was funny. Here they

:34:33.:34:43.

Last week Latino loving Russell attempted his first ballroom dance,

:34:43.:34:52.

Broadway style. I would advise a more masculine approach. I can't

:34:52.:34:56.

stop laughing when I think about Craig's comments. A little more

:34:56.:35:06.
:35:06.:35:07.

Rambo. A lot of celebrities were Rambo. Harry, Jason was in pink.

:35:07.:35:15.

Can you imagine me as Rambo? I don't think so. This week I am

:35:15.:35:23.

dancing the tango to the song Sweet Dreams. If I could just get a

:35:23.:35:28.

little bit more sleep, maybe I could get some of my own. Perchance

:35:28.:35:38.
:35:38.:35:41.

Waking Watty, it is time to dance. Really? How wonderful. This is like

:35:41.:35:47.

a dream come true. # I am on top of the world looking

:35:47.:35:56.

down on creation. I feel I'm on top of the world. You are, look. It is

:35:56.:36:06.
:36:06.:36:06.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:36:06.:38:01.

Dancing the tango, Russell Grant Is he all right? Flavia, go and get

:38:01.:38:11.
:38:11.:38:11.

him. How about that? Look at these people. Russell, you really

:38:11.:38:17.

captured the nation. This is marvellous. I have never seen you

:38:17.:38:21.

having such a good time either. Craig? I think it is very good that

:38:21.:38:29.

you are giving Mickey's know a bit of a go, darling. However, those

:38:29.:38:35.

shoulders, those ones, don't really belong. And your head didn't really

:38:35.:38:41.

look as though it belonged to you sometimes. It belonged to us.

:38:41.:38:49.

it was entertaining. Len? Your head was like that nodding dog think

:38:49.:38:58.

sometimes. It was all too whimsical and airy fairy. Having said that,

:38:58.:39:03.

there is a charm about you and you are very endearing. People like you

:39:03.:39:11.

and I like you. That sums it up. Alesha? Russell, it wasn't the best

:39:11.:39:14.

tango I have ever seen, but I appreciated your interpretation of

:39:14.:39:22.

it. For me, you are too nice to do a menacing tango. I look forward to

:39:22.:39:27.

seeing you in the jive. It is hard. You have already become a Strictly

:39:27.:39:37.
:39:37.:39:37.

legend. Bruno? Russell, I think I've got it. From Sleeping Beauty

:39:37.:39:43.

tonight terrors. It all went on in your mind. Twists and turns, the

:39:43.:39:52.

horror of it. I thought it was brilliant! Insane but brilliant!

:39:52.:40:02.
:40:02.:40:06.

Absolutely marvellous. Don't leave He's there! He's coming on tour.

:40:06.:40:16.
:40:16.:40:29.

Dreams do come true on Strictly. You don't ever want to wake up from

:40:29.:40:35.

this, do you? No, a bit of a nightmare, really. Sweet dreams! Of

:40:35.:40:40.

the judges didn't think it was a nightmare. Bruno understood it. He

:40:40.:40:45.

understood the whole story line. Happy days. What is the reaction

:40:45.:40:51.

like from people when you're out and about? Unbelievable. People are

:40:51.:40:56.

just so fantastic, they are so kind and generous. They walk in and

:40:56.:41:02.
