Tonight was the night we found out who made their way to Blackpool. It was emotional as a legend left the Strictly floor (more on that coming up in our next blog) however before that we were treated to more wonderful surprises worthy of the Blackpool Ballroom.
The show opened up with a spectacular professional routine with a day at the office, where Brendan Cole turned up and whisked Oti off her feet! Now, why can’t every day of the office be like that? We loved it and thought it was truly fabulous!
We were also treated to a performance by Brandon Flowers (we’re pretty sure he’s an older (and hotter) Harry Styles) featuring wonderful dancing from Oti and Aljaz.
The couples were saved one by one and we learnt that Kevin not only gives the best safety reactions but also lost his hat, Tristan made a strange alien noise at being in the dance-off for the fourth time, Anton turned into an owl and Georgia’s squeals woke most of the puppies of the UK!
We also learnt that Anita’s parents had their honeymoon in Blackpool so she is very much looking forward to performing there. Katie and Anton will be performing a Fred and Ginger style American Smooth and Helen and Aljaz will be performing a Charleston.
Jamelia ended up in the Dance-Off for the fourth time against Jeremy and Karen. Both couples upped their game, however Jeremy and Karen’s journey ended on the show. They will truly be missed. It reminded us that if you’re up in the Dance-Off against Jamelia, watch out! This girl is a survivor and cannot be beaten.
We’ll be back on Tuesday from 8pm and will have a special Blackpool themed quiz for you all. We’ll also have a special post coming up on the blog, for the latest couple to have left the ballroom. Watch this space!
