A Strictly night of love songs

  • Abbey & Aljaz jived down Penny Lane and Len commented, “a lot of please, please me and a little bit of help”
  • Patrick & Anya’s Waltz earned them Bruno’s comment : “there were moments of dash and moments of restraint” and Craig said, “you are style, you really are”
  • Dave and Karen’s Paso Doble had the studio audience on their feet but it wasn’t quite a Paso triple-A as Craig said, “dreadful” and Darcey commented, “you had a very strong attitude. Maybe not a matador. I nearly cried.” Bruno said “this tops everything I’ve ever seen”
  • Fiona & Anton Waltzed through a game of snakes and ladders that saw them “back up the ladder” according to Len
  • Rachel & Pasha’s Cha Cha earned them the comment from Bruno, “you’re starting to use your assets to your advantage”
  • Mark & Iveta’s American Smooth had storytelling “but you have to work on your hands” said Craig
  • Ben & Kristina’s Rhumba impressed Craig, “I’m willing you to do well. You know what ? You did”
  • Sophie & Brendan’s colourful Samba had “fabulous” content according to Darcey and “full of all my greatest hits” according to Len. They scored 31, which is an amazingly good score for a samba in week 3.
  • Julien & Janette’s Jive was their “best dance to date” according to Len and “a criminal attack on the Jive” from Bruno
  • Suzanna & Kevin’s Viennese Waltz earned them praise from Darcey with “every week you get better and better and better”
  • Vanessa & James’ Tango surprised the judges with Darcey saying “it’s not about liking the smell of your man, It’s about keeping your head away”
  • Ashley & Ola’s Samba saw Ola descent to the ballroom floor on a spangled heart and Craig said of Ashley, “your hip rolls were absolute filth and I loved it”
  • The dance of the night was Natalie & Artem’s Rhumba, with its utterly beautiful developeé and was “beauty in perpetual motion” according to Bruno. Their score of 36 underlines my view of their dance
  • Deborah & Robin closed the show with their Quickstep which showcased Deborah’s new-found love of dance and Bruno’s praise : “the dragon is turning into a butterfly”
