From London...

0:00:490:00:50

This is Strictly It Takes Two!

0:00:500:00:51

Please welcome your host, Zoe Ball.

0:00:510:00:54

CHEERING.

0:00:560:00:57

Hello, and welcome to It Takes Two !

0:00:580:01:00

After waving goodbye to Darvood

and Nadiya last night, all eyes

0:01:000:01:03

are on the semifinal.

0:01:030:01:04

And the countdown starts here.

0:01:040:01:05

They secured their place

on Sunday night after

0:01:050:01:07

a show-stopping dance-off.

0:01:070:01:11

It's the supercalifragilisticexpi...

0:01:110:01:12

Alexandra and Gorka!

0:01:120:01:13

CHEERING.

0:01:130:01:18

And, hoping to be practically

perfect in the Pro Challenge,

0:01:180:01:20

it's Brendan Cole!

0:01:200:01:21

CHEERING.

0:01:210:01:24

But first, like a spoonful of sugar

she helps the medicine go

0:01:240:01:27

down.

0:01:270:01:29

Natalie Lowe returns

for Choreography Corner!

0:01:290:01:33

Give it up for Natalie

0:01:430:01:44

Lowe, everyone!

0:01:440:01:45

CHEERING.

0:01:450:01:51

Always gorgeous, you look amazing.

0:01:510:01:53

Was Musicals Week

a smash hit for you?

0:01:530:01:57

It was a smash hit, unbelievable,

the props, lighting, hair, make-up.

0:01:570:02:07

They really complimented the

routine. All the extra dancers.

0:02:070:02:12

Let's start with Alexandra

and Gorka's Charleston.

0:02:120:02:16

Somehow they still ended

up in the bottom two.

0:02:160:02:18

Even though the judges couldn't

tell who the pro was!

0:02:180:02:22

Just how polished was this routine?

0:02:220:02:25

I said the same, she is

unbelievable. Her swivelling action,

0:02:250:02:34

she danced her socks off, her energy

levels in her legs were

0:02:340:02:39

unbelievable, we have some footage

here.

0:02:390:02:41

It takes a lot of power to have that

height through the lakes. Incredible

0:02:410:02:48

swivelling action which I've never

seen on any other celebrity. Amazing

0:02:480:02:53

characterisation. She was like Santa

Claus, she kept on giving.

0:02:530:02:59

And it went on, the energy.

What next. It was continuous. One of

0:02:590:03:07

the best Charleston dancers I have

ever seen.

0:03:070:03:10

Debbie and Giovanni's

American Smooth next.

0:03:100:03:12

They were praised

for their storytelling.

0:03:120:03:13

What made it so memorable?

for their storytelling.

0:03:130:03:17

For me, it was just an immaculate

performance, and it was magical from

0:03:170:03:25

beginning to end, I felt transported

and transfixed. Her poise, elegance,

0:03:250:03:30

the support she is giving herself

because Giovanni is not really there

0:03:300:03:34

for her, a lot of it was out of

holes. She is exquisite. Moving

0:03:340:03:40

forward I would like to see her have

a bit more fullness through the

0:03:400:03:44

frame, with her online is in

tension, with purpose. I want more

0:03:440:03:50

extension. She has some great

dancers next week so she can express

0:03:500:03:57

herself more in her upper body.

0:03:570:03:58

Next up, Mollie and AJ's rumba.

0:03:580:04:00

Mixed comments for this one.

0:04:000:04:02

And an illegal lift!

0:04:020:04:03

Craig thought she was

"dancing by numbers".

0:04:030:04:05

What did he mean by that?

0:04:050:04:12

I loved it as well. For me, because

the music was so slow, it was just

0:04:120:04:20

like, two, three,... She was

stepping to the beat. If she was

0:04:200:04:28

settling into the hip, if she had

thought about the, and three, and

0:04:280:04:36

four...

Argue OK. I am following, I am

0:04:360:04:40

following.

-- are you locate?

0:04:400:04:46

Can I just show you?

I think you need to, it it is time.

0:04:460:04:53

With that section we slowed down, it

was very sideways. Counting slowly.

0:04:530:05:02

A bit better performed than that.

You need to think about the figure

0:05:020:05:07

eight action, as you are closing

your feet.

0:05:070:05:17

Oh! That is how it is done,

incredible.

0:05:170:05:26

Years to perfect that. I thought the

lift worked for them. You need to

0:05:260:05:32

pull out all the stops.

Even though it was illegal.

0:05:320:05:36

On to Gemma and Aljaz who opened

the show with a quickstep.

0:05:360:05:39

The judges were divided on

characterisation versus technique.

0:05:390:05:41

What did you think?

0:05:410:05:49

She looked like $1 million, she came

out firing on all cylinders as you

0:05:490:05:54

should. They were first out. I loved

this combination of flicks, she

0:05:540:06:02

needed a lot of upper body strength

to make it look elegant.

0:06:020:06:07

I do feel like there was quite a lot

of content which overrode her

0:06:070:06:13

characterisation.

She came out firing, lost it in the

0:06:130:06:17

middle, a bit of frame

characterisation. And energy. But

0:06:170:06:22

she finished strong. So much to

think about coming in her defence,

0:06:220:06:29

syncopation, there are other dancers

on the floor.

0:06:290:06:31

But I thought she did a good

performance.

0:06:310:06:34

I loved the big finish.

0:06:340:06:36

And finally, let's talk about Joe

and Katya's cabaret-inspired samba.

0:06:360:06:38

Why was this concept

so on the money?

0:06:380:06:45

People loved it. I see what you did

there!

0:06:450:06:52

For me, this was a really risky

song, for a samba there needs to be

0:06:520:06:58

a take action, the music didn't give

that for me. I think Katya is a

0:06:580:07:04

genius with her technical ability

and the way she teaches. That

0:07:040:07:08

enabled this routine to shine and

get top marks. He had some fantastic

0:07:080:07:14

action. Better action than I have

seen on any male celebrity doing the

0:07:140:07:19

samba.

That is good! I think I have a

0:07:190:07:26

little demo to do.

Please!

0:07:260:07:30

Again, it is about the mid section

and utilising the full beat of the

0:07:300:07:35

music. He had a moment where he

went...

0:07:350:07:43

You don't normally see this

settling, this contraption and

0:07:430:07:47

rotation section through the hip. Do

you want to see it again?

0:07:470:07:52

Yes, please.

Well done!

0:07:520:08:04

I think that was amazing.

Good luck

at the wedding, getting married!

0:08:040:08:13

So exciting.

0:08:130:08:15

Now, the Strictly playlist

is endless, but we don't

0:08:150:08:17

just pop it on shuffle.

0:08:170:08:18

Our songs are carefully selected

to bring sweet music to your ears.

0:08:180:08:21

So, without further ado,

it's time for Tunes On Tuesday.

0:08:210:08:23

One of my favourites. It is

semifinal time.

0:08:340:08:40

And I reckon this next

song is really going

0:08:400:08:42

to get us in the mood.

0:08:420:08:44

Here goes.

0:08:440:08:45

MUSIC: I'm So Excited.

0:08:450:08:46

It's I'm So Excited,

by the Pointer Sisters!

0:08:460:08:48

Released in 1984, it just missed out

on the top ten, but has

0:08:480:08:51

since become a club classic!

0:08:510:08:53

Now, if like three-quarters

of Brits, you don't feel

0:08:530:08:55

like you're getting

enough excitement in your life,

0:08:550:08:57

here are some top tips on how

to boost your excitement levels.

0:08:570:09:03

Number one.

0:09:030:09:04

Get out of bed right away!

0:09:040:09:10

Number two.

0:09:100:09:11

Exercise!

0:09:110:09:12

Number three.

0:09:120:09:13

Smile more!

0:09:130:09:15

Number four.

0:09:150:09:16

Find wonder in the most

simple things!

0:09:160:09:23

It's all so exciting!

0:09:230:09:24

We can't contain

ourselves any longer.

0:09:240:09:28

Who's going to be dancing to this?

0:09:280:09:33

It's Debbie and Giovanni.

0:09:360:09:39

And they'll be dancing a jive.

0:09:390:09:43

Thank you. Give it up for Gorka and

Alexandra!

0:09:430:09:49

Right, what's next?

0:09:490:09:51

MUSIC: Have You Met Miss Jones?

0:09:510:09:54

It's Have You Met Miss Jones?

0:09:540:09:56

Originally recorded in 1937,

this classic has been

0:09:560:09:58

sung by Frank Sinatra,

Ella Fitzgerald and Tony Bennett,

0:09:580:10:00

to name a few.

0:10:000:10:04

But it's the Robbie Williams'

version we're interested in.

0:10:040:10:07

As featured on the soundtrack

to Bridget Jones's Diary!

0:10:070:10:11

Thanks to that very film,

sales of granny knickers

0:10:110:10:13

went through the roof!

0:10:130:10:16

So, who'll be hoping to charm

the pants off the judges with this?

0:10:160:10:25

Look at them, it is a beautiful

thing. Thank you

0:10:250:10:31

Let's find out.

0:10:310:10:34

The clue was in the title all along.

0:10:340:10:36

It's Joe and Katya...

0:10:360:10:37

Jones!

0:10:370:10:38

They'll be dancing

an American Smooth.

0:10:380:10:42

Natalie and Hawker, beautiful work.

0:10:420:10:44

Right, time for one last song.

0:10:440:10:45

MUSIC: Finally.

0:10:450:10:47

Finally, a CeCe Peniston song!

0:10:470:10:50

This was released in 1991

when it reached number one

0:10:500:10:53

in the Billboard charts.

0:10:530:10:54

CeCe penned this song in college.

0:10:540:10:56

She wasn't dating much,

and tried to imagine

0:10:560:10:58

what her future man

might

0:10:580:10:59

look like when she finally met him.

0:10:590:11:01

Well, it worked a treat because,

not long after, she got her man!

0:11:010:11:05

Who will be hoping to strike gold

with this on Saturday?

0:11:050:11:11

It's Alexandra and Gorka!

0:11:170:11:20

And what will you be

dancing to this epic tune?

0:11:200:11:23

A salsa!

0:11:230:11:27

We can't wait.

0:11:270:11:35

To find out the rest of the songs,

head over to the Strictly website.

0:11:350:11:39

Now, enough of that

semifinal nonsense, we've

0:11:390:11:41

got bigger fish to fry!

0:11:410:11:42

It's time for the Pro Challenge!

0:11:420:11:44

This year, the Pro Challenge

is heading back to the Roaring '20s

0:11:440:11:49

where our pros will attempt to set

a record for the most Charleston

0:11:490:11:52

swivel steps in 30 seconds.

0:11:520:12:01

To qualify, our pros

have to complete

0:12:010:12:02

one forward and one backward step.

0:12:020:12:04

If there is no swivel in the feet

or ankles, or if they fail

0:12:040:12:07

to complete the forward and backward

steps, it

0:12:070:12:09

will be disqualified.

0:12:090:12:10

The challenge will be

the hardest and most

0:12:100:12:12

technical our pros have faced.

0:12:120:12:13

But only one person

can claim the title.

0:12:130:12:15

Welcome to the Strictly

Pro Challenge 2017.

0:12:150:12:17

Thank you.

0:12:170:12:18

Time to welcome our next contender.

0:12:180:12:19

He hails all the way

from Christchurch, New Zealand

0:12:190:12:21

where, at the age of six,

he took his first dance steps.

0:12:210:12:24

Years later, he would win

the first ever series

0:12:240:12:27

of Strictly Come Dancing.

0:12:270:12:27

Give it up for the

legendary Brendan Cole!

0:12:270:12:29

CHEERING.

0:12:290:12:33

Here he comes!

Beautifully done!

0:12:330:12:40

Thank you so much.

0:12:400:12:42

15 series of Strictly.

0:12:420:12:43

That's a lot of swivels.

0:12:430:12:44

Surely your entire career has been

building to this challenge?

0:12:440:12:49

Yes, I can tell.

Listen, I'm always want to see, it

0:12:490:12:56

doesn't really matter this Pro

Challenge. Deep down, it does, but

0:12:560:13:00

I'm not very good.

I go for quality and not quantity.

0:13:000:13:06

I like that.

0:13:060:13:07

If you don't mind me saying,

you are a veteran among the pros.

0:13:070:13:10

Have they been showing

you the respect you deserve?

0:13:100:13:15

On this show, you must be joking! I

have a great relationship with

0:13:150:13:21

everyone on the show.

The prose on the show, we all love

0:13:210:13:26

each other and help each other.

When it comes to the Pro Challenge,

0:13:260:13:31

the elbows are out. Have you seen

Katia? She has a look on her face,

0:13:310:13:37

what to do?

She is top of the Leader Board.

0:13:370:13:40

What are you hoping for?

I'm hoping

to be at the bottom. I don't believe

0:13:400:13:46

in trying to beat Katia because she

might kill me. I muffled it in the

0:13:460:13:53

middle.

Shall we see?

My tactic is

to use these bounty little legs and

0:13:530:14:09

go faster than anyone else. Who

knows.

0:14:090:14:15

There he is, hello, Brendan, welcome

to the Pro Challenge.

0:14:150:14:17

How are you feeling?

Albright.

0:14:170:14:22

Just because you are one of the more

mature prose we still eat you can do

0:14:220:14:26

this. We still think!

I am going to give this my best,

0:14:260:14:33

don't you worry.

Take your position on the dance

0:14:330:14:36

floor.

Get ready.

0:14:360:14:37

OK. Your official attempt begins...

Go.

0:14:370:14:44

Come on, Brendan, keep going. Push

it. Keep the swivel.

0:14:500:14:57

Hang on.

15 seconds. Shut up!

0:14:570:15:05

Not you, personally.

Keep the swivel.

0:15:050:15:11

Five, four...

Stop.

0:15:110:15:18

I am too old for this.

What happened there? I don't know.

0:15:210:15:31

I'd like another crack at that but

we only get one chance, that is a

0:15:310:15:36

life lesson.

Sadly, yes.

0:15:360:15:40

Thank you for joining in. Thank you,

Brendan.

0:15:400:15:42

Today I put on my lucky Charleston

shoes and frankly, they are going in

0:15:480:15:54

the bin.

That made me laugh a lot.

You only

0:15:540:15:59

get one chance, do not miss your

chance.

It made me look much better.

0:15:590:16:07

I know I stumbled in the middle, it

was pretty atrocious. That was

0:16:070:16:12

funny.

It was very funny. Have you

thrown away your Charleston shoes

0:16:120:16:16

because I would have given you a

good price.

They are gone, they are

0:16:160:16:19

in the bin.

0:16:190:16:22

I'm legally required to inform

you that, after each

0:16:220:16:24

of the professionals had

made their attempt, the footage

0:16:240:16:26

was watched back by adjudicators

in slow motion to verify every

0:16:260:16:29

single swivel to make sure

they were all accurate.

0:16:290:16:33

You finished a little more

horizontal than you may've liked.

0:16:330:16:37

Did you underestimate the challenge?

0:16:370:16:41

I did, I didn't practice, I didn't

go in to it with the steely

0:16:410:16:45

determination to win. It's the

taking part that counts, children.

0:16:450:16:49

Exactly. I cannot give you in

suspense any longer.

Shall I lean

0:16:490:16:55

forward?

Yes. In 30 seconds, you

completed...

0:16:550:17:00

DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:17:000:17:06

21 Charles Dance swivels.

Yes! Cut

to commercial! .

To commercial. Of

0:17:110:17:22

course, there were some

disqualifications. There were 14

0:17:220:17:24

illegal steps, giving you a total of

seven. You did say you wanted to be

0:17:240:17:31

top or bottom of the Leader Board.

You got your wish, it came true.

I

0:17:310:17:39

want a recount!

Brendan Cole,

everyone.

0:17:390:17:45

And now for something

completely different.

0:17:450:17:47

When you think of computer game duos

some legendary partnerships

0:17:470:17:49

spring to mind - Mario &

Luigi, Sonic & Tails.

0:17:490:17:51

Chloe and Neil.

0:17:510:17:54

Kneel and I have come along to a

motion capture studio where they

0:17:540:17:58

create animations for video games.

-- Neil.

I've always wanted to be in

0:17:580:18:07

a video, maybe I could be a warrior

or a superhero.

OK, Neil, we're on

0:18:070:18:14

Strictly, we are going to be

dancing.

But maybe we could be

0:18:140:18:20

dancing super heroes.

Whatever, come

on, let's go.

In fact we are going

0:18:200:18:24

to be starring in a dancing game.

Nick is going to be showing us the

0:18:240:18:29

ropes.

What I need you to do first

is go and get suited up and when you

0:18:290:18:34

get back I will explain everything

we are going to do.

I feel like a

0:18:340:18:41

superhero!

You look like ping-pong

boy.

That is mean, let's get on with

0:18:410:18:49

it. Why have I got so many ping-pong

balls all over meat?

The six to two

0:18:490:18:53

cameras in this theatre are

calibrated and working as one hand

0:18:530:18:56

they track the markers on your

bodies so we can capture the

0:18:560:19:00

animation.

I was expecting a green

screen so how does this work?

We

0:19:000:19:04

don't do Green screen stuff anymore

that was way back. It is 2007 Tina

0:19:040:19:11

Maze and computer technology

tracking you using the markers.

What

0:19:110:19:13

is next?

Do some practice moves to

see of the calibration is working

0:19:130:19:18

and then we will do some of the

dancing.

Cool, definitely. Let's go,

0:19:180:19:24

Chloe.

0:19:240:19:25

Do that one.

Moonwalking all-day

around you, girl.

0:19:290:19:37

So, Nick, is this what you are

looking for, this type of thing?

I

0:19:370:19:41

was kind of looking for the Viennese

waltz.

OK.

OK, come on, Chloe, let's

0:19:410:19:49

do it.

0:19:490:19:51

Awesome, looks great, thank you.

With the filming complete its over

0:20:040:20:10

to Nick and his team to work their

magic and put us into the game.

Once

0:20:100:20:14

we have got the footage for the

motion capture studio it comes back

0:20:140:20:17

and we can look at it on the

computer. What we can see here is

0:20:170:20:23

the skeleton is dancing around the

floor and in the game you have to

0:20:230:20:26

wrap the skin around the skeletons

of Neil and Chloe. Next stage is we

0:20:260:20:33

start to add finer details. We have

to tailor the facial expressions to

0:20:330:20:37

the dance. So, for example, if it

was the tango it would be serious,

0:20:370:20:41

whereas with the Viennese waltz it

is much happier and smiling. The

0:20:410:20:45

last stage is to put a bit of colour

into the characters, and at this

0:20:450:20:48

point it starts to feel like the

characters are coming to life.

0:20:480:20:52

So there you have it, that's how the

magic happens, and how you transform

0:20:520:20:57

us dancing into the video game.

Chloe and kneel, that's amazing. --

0:20:570:21:06

Neil.

0:21:060:21:07

Time to welcome my final guests.

0:21:070:21:08

They survived their second

dance off to earn a

0:21:080:21:11

place in the semifinal

with a Charleston

0:21:110:21:12

that was quite simply.

0:21:120:21:13

GORKA:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

0:21:130:21:15

CHEERING

He almost got it!

0:21:150:21:19

It's Alexandra and Gorka!

0:21:190:21:23

Practically perfect in every

possible way. Well done.

The amount

0:21:270:21:33

of detail you gave us, I mean, it

didn't stop, you didn't even take a

0:21:330:21:38

breath.

You had better swivel than

Gorka in that, actually. I

0:21:380:21:44

absolutely loved it, brilliant.

Alexandra and Gorka! Amazing stuff.

0:21:440:21:52

I think Bruno put it perfectly when

he said your Charleston was the show

0:21:520:21:55

stopper everyone was waiting for. It

was awesome, how much fun did you

0:21:550:21:59

have?

I had so much fun, for me the

Charleston is the one dance when I

0:21:590:22:04

was always saying to Gorka let's do

energetically and I'm always quite

0:22:040:22:11

hyper so he was giving me every

trick in the world to see if I could

0:22:110:22:15

do it and it was so much fun and it

was brilliant, I loved it.

I would

0:22:150:22:19

love to re-enact those moves at

home. There you are joint top of the

0:22:190:22:23

Leader Board and then you go into

the bottom two. Last week you said

0:22:230:22:28

it was a shock, wasn't a shock, you

kind of expected it but this week I

0:22:280:22:31

could feel the pain on your little

face when it happened.

It's a scary

0:22:310:22:36

place to be and at this point in the

show as well, everybody wants to

0:22:360:22:39

make it that next step. I was really

frightened and so, you know when you

0:22:390:22:49

feel you haven't done your partner

proud and that's how I felt. I

0:22:490:22:52

always want to do Gorka crowd and I

felt we had such a great week and

0:22:520:22:57

performance, we felt we did, we got

great encouraging comments, and it

0:22:570:23:04

is a scary place.

It is a tough one.

Gorka, for you, when she has done

0:23:040:23:09

such an amazing performance, got

great comments from the judges, when

0:23:090:23:12

told you are in the bottom two, how

do you pick Alexandra up and get her

0:23:120:23:17

to go out there?

She's the one who

picks me up because she is such a

0:23:170:23:20

strong woman, because I was like,

OK, whatever but she was positive

0:23:200:23:25

and like, whatever, let's do it and

we both love the dance and wanted to

0:23:250:23:31

enjoy it and we take the positive

side, let's do it again and have

0:23:310:23:34

fun. So she's very positive and

strong so it's very good.

The judges

0:23:340:23:38

were in disbelief when that happens

as well. Why don't people vote? What

0:23:380:23:42

do you think?

I don't know, you just

can't take that moment for granted.

0:23:420:23:47

We were at the top of the Leader

Board at that point but maybe

0:23:470:23:51

they'll pull think you are safe and

that's why they don't vote for

0:23:510:23:55

survival was said it come I can't

stress enough, the votes really do

0:23:550:23:59

matter. It really matters no matter

where you are in the Leader Board.

0:23:590:24:02

We have to encourage people to

hopefully vote.

My friends want to

0:24:020:24:06

vote but they live in Spain.

Fly

them over, Gorka, it would be worth

0:24:060:24:12

it. Also, you said you have been

treated for an injury as well. Tell

0:24:120:24:17

us about that.

Basically, just

before we went on for the actual

0:24:170:24:20

show I injured my leg, my left hip,

so I was industry -- in excruciating

0:24:200:24:28

pain during the dance. And the

dance-off, I just had to go for it.

0:24:280:24:33

You are amazing.

APPLAUSE

0:24:330:24:37

Like a pro dancer. Craig said your

swivel was better than Gorka's and

0:24:370:24:41

it shows how good a teacher he is.

It's better than his too.

0:24:410:24:45

LAUGHTER

Just saying!

You could have done the

0:24:450:24:51

Pro Challenge. You were swivelling

in your sleep?

Yes, to be honest, I

0:24:510:24:56

think I was over thinking everything

that we could because I just wanted

0:24:560:24:59

to go out there and have the best

time. I'm sorry but the Charleston,

0:24:590:25:03

if anybody in life gets the chance

to practice a Charleston it's the

0:25:030:25:07

happiest dance you will ever do. You

get to go into a little world of

0:25:070:25:12

your own and it's so much fun.

Someone is doing it in the audience

0:25:120:25:15

tonight.

Me too!

Darcey compel you

to a professional and when you hear

0:25:150:25:24

that from a prima ballerina that has

got to be good.

It's amazing, I'm

0:25:240:25:28

having the best experience with

Gorka and loving every single moment

0:25:280:25:31

of it. I don't want it to end.

Yeah.

It's just beyond what I thought it

0:25:310:25:37

would be. It's even better than what

I thought this experience would be.

0:25:370:25:41

We take the comments and come back

next year.

It is the semifinal, two

0:25:410:25:51

dancers, my goodness, one of them we

know, salsa to CeCe Peniston I know

0:25:510:25:57

you love a party dance, how excited

are you?

I'm so excited, I know I

0:25:570:26:03

say that about every dance but this

also, with Gorka, he is the king of

0:26:030:26:07

salsa, isn't he?

Who me?

I'm just so

excited to do a salsa with this

0:26:070:26:16

amazing man right here. I can't

wait.

So, salsa and what is the

0:26:160:26:20

other dance, Gorka, por favor?

We

are doing the Viennese waltz.

How

0:26:200:26:29

does this compare?

It is the same

rhythm but it is quite fast compared

0:26:290:26:38

to the normal English waltz. It is

going to be faster. This one is very

0:26:380:26:43

beautiful, classic and romantic. It

is good we are doing the Viennese

0:26:430:26:46

waltz and a salsa and as we show in

the semifinal but two different

0:26:460:26:51

sides of Alexandra, strong, crazy

and fun and sexy, with the classic,

0:26:510:26:56

elegant, sophisticated woman.

I love

that he recognises you have those

0:26:560:27:01

two sites.

And mind too.

Do you get

to be a bit of a beast coming out on

0:27:010:27:10

the salsa?

Oh, yes, it's going to be

all bars down, just go for it, I'm

0:27:100:27:14

just going to go for gold in this

one. King of salsa and I'm just

0:27:140:27:20

trying to keep up.

He's trying to

keep up with you at the end of this!

0:27:200:27:23

How do you train for two? How do you

approach this week, what is the

0:27:230:27:29

game?

The most important thing is

planning the day in two parts, so

0:27:290:27:34

that she doesn't get confused. I

don't want to mix dancers between

0:27:340:27:37

the day, so we will do half a day on

one routine and half a day on the

0:27:370:27:41

other routine and make it easy for

her.

I'm scared. I want to have fun

0:27:410:27:47

but I'm definitely scared about this

week because it's a lot to take on.

0:27:470:27:50

It's not like we know a dance this

week, the week of the paso doble, we

0:27:500:27:55

knew what we were doing in one dance

but this week scares me, I'm not

0:27:550:27:58

going to lie.

Hold tight, I say.

Good luck with the hip as well. We

0:27:580:28:04

love you, go on, Alexandra and

Gorka.

0:28:040:28:11

That's all we have time for tonight!

0:28:110:28:14

Join me tomorrow at 6:30pm

when I'll be joined by

0:28:140:28:17
