Strictly Come Dancing | The results for Halloween week 5

8 Professional Strictly dancers kick off the Strictly results show – geeky boys in glasses and check shirts and leather and lace clad girls bewtitching them.

The routine ends with the dancers sat at the judges panel and the judges by the cauldron!

Claudia introduces the treats to come – the devilishly handsome boys from The Wanted, and perhaps the slightly less enticing Len’s Lens, before launching in to a re-cap of Saturday’s mayhem.

The first couple safe tonight is Lulu & Brendan, Alex & James, Jason & Kristina, Holly & Artem and Chelsee & Pasha.

Audley & Natalie are in the bottom two. The Jive didn’t suit him, but Len had a feeling he might be in danger this week.

Claudia speaks to the saved couples, and Alex is clearly delighted to be through after her awful time last week. Lulu is over the moon; she said “I’m still flying.” Chelsee has found this week hard, and was nervous, and found the wardrobe malfunction hard to handle. And then, the hottest band around (according to the script, anyway) : The Wanted. They safely negotiate the pumpkins on the stairs but they appear to be more guests who don’t want to share the stage with the Strictly professional dancers.  This isn’t the x-factor!!!

The judges cluster around Len’s Lens, and the audience in the background seem as restless to get on with it as everyone else may be.  Len says, “you’ve got to risk it if you want the biscuit.” Holly & Artem’s Swan Lake/Black Swan dance comes under the Lens, and said that it didn’t get a 10 because there wasn’t enough content and Bruno said that from a ballet point of view, it wasn’t quite there.

Five couples left.  Who is safe ? Anita & Robin are, along with Russell & Flavia, Harry & Aliona and Robbie & Ola.

Nancy & Anton are in the bottom two with Audley & Natalie. Is this the final nail in the coffin for Nancy ? Nancy talks to Claudia and though she wants to watch it again first, she thinks that she did a good dance and that the judges were a bit harsh.

6 of the Strictly Professionals return with a black & white Witchcraft number.

Finding themselves in the bottom two 3 times, Nancy’s time is up, and she and Anton leave the competition.

    @Lyn it was a good week – though I would like to see more dancing ! I’m not sure that Nancy was improving week by week and so it probbaly was time for her to leave. She has been entertaining though !
