So, this evening the second couple are about to be eliminated from Strictly, and I don’t think there can be much uncertainty over which couple the public will have voted out. But we’ll see ! Whose rhumba or quickstep wowed, and whose failed to impress you at home ?
Starting with the Strictly pro’s, and a bus stop, the team dance a Charleston. If you remember, these were the moves that put Chris Hollins’s name on the Glitterball trophy and won him the title last year. The ladies have lots of fringing & lace in black,silver and russet. The boys have waistcoats and black trousers.
Claudia Winkelman has a scarlet lace dress (thank the Lord that last weeks overall will never rear it’s collar again), and she is promising a show-stopping tango later on. Well, I think she’s promising that someone else will be dancing a show-stopping tango later on – you’ve seen her masterclasses with Len on It takes Two, right ?
Pamela looks relieved to be through, as does Peter to be out of the bottom two this week. Patsy looks utterly shocked – if anything could top the expression on her face last week ! Ann is through as well.
Flavia choreographed the tango – unleashed ! Four guys with white ropes surround Flavia, who is on the floor, hands entwined in the ropes. Eventually she breaks free, into some stunning lifts with all of them, finally ending up where she started.
Paul Daniels is in the bottom two, and he says he agrees with everyone who thinks he might be going home. He says that he doesn’t know of anyone else in the group better qualified to go than him.
Peter Andre premieres his new single, Defender, with what he said would be a challening dance routine – ostensibly the reason behind the debut on Strictly. His 7 male backing dancers worked harder.
Michelle joins Paul in the bottom two, and she looks terrified. There is nothing else the couples can do, and Tess announces that Paul is leaving the show tonight.
