Strictly 2016 – Photo and GIF of the Week! (Week 2)

As you know, every week this series, we’ll be sharing a photo and a GIF from the live and results shows which made us smile or fall in love with a dance!

This week’s photo of the week is this brilliant moment from Ed and Katya’s Charleston:


We love Ed’s love of Strictly and all things dance. He has truly embraced the magic of sequins and having watched this performance 4 times already, it’s made us smile more and more each time we’ve watched it. His facial expressions were perfect, they were in sync together and some of those lifts were challenging and very impressive! This moment sums up the sheer perfection. Let’s not forget, he’s not an actor, but he pulled this performance off perfectly!

For our GIF of the week we’re turning to Danny and Oti’s wonderful Viennese Waltz:

Words cannot really describe this moment other than it was full of drama and made us fall in love with these two even more! Can we also take a moment to appreciate Oti’s beautiful dress which is showcased perfectly in this gorgeous move!

So that’s this week’s photo and GIF of the week. Do you have a moment from week 2 you’d like us to GIF or a picture moment which made you smile? Maybe you have a favourite GIF you’d like to share too. Just tweet @scd_support or comment below to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.

Strictly 2016 – Bella’s Best Bits (Week 2) πŸ‘ΈπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ¦„

If you were here last week, you will have heard that my little girl (aka the smallest Strictly Superfan) is telling us her best bits every week! As she’s 6, she’s decided she wanted to tell us her top 6 favourite routines of the week!

Here are her top six moments of Strictly 2016 week 2:

6. Claudia and AJ’s Waltz:

I thought she looked like Rapunzel in her tower at the start and I really liked her dress and her hair. I might ask mummy if I can borrow it because she’s only little like me. She did lots of twirls and spins and gymnastic bits and she even did the splits too! I liked the neckspin at the end of their dance too.

5. Judge Rinder and Oksana’s American Smooth

If I ever do an American Smooth I want to perform one like this. I liked Oksana’s dress and I really like these two together. Judge Rinder is very funny too. I like him answering Craig back too, because Craig is not very nice. The lifts and dancing was very elegant. I liked it a lot.

4. Ed and Katya’s Charleston

I really liked this dance. It was a lot of fun. If you have fun and try your hardest when you dance that’s all that matters. My teacher always tells me to try my hardest and that’s what he did too. I got my Ukelele out on Saturday too and tried to do the Charleston. Mummy said it was very good, but I don’t think I was as good as Ed and Katya. I voted for them lots!

3. Karen and Will’s Jive

This dance looked like a lot of fun too. Will and Karen are my favourites and I think the judges were wrong saying he was flat-footed. It’s very hard dancing jive and even harder dancing in converse (especially if they’re not sparkly!) Will danced through a lot of pain too as he pulled a muscle. He’s very brave! I think he should get a sparkly medal.

2. Tameka and Gorka’s Charleston

When I go to the seaside, I want to perform this dance. It looks like more fun than eating Ice Cream. I love the Charleston and I liked these two dancing it together, even though it went a little bit wrong in the middle, they kept going and looked like they were having so much fun!

1. Louise and Kevin’s Viennese Waltz.

I loved this dance! It looked like a prince and a princess dancing in a palace at a ballroom in a Disney film. It was beautiful and just completely amazing. Mummy said I was very quiet watching it and had to check I was ok, but that was because I was enjoying the dance so much! I love Louise and Kevin. They are awesome.

So those are my 6 year old’s top 6 routines of the weekend. Which dances were your favourite dances? You can tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Strictly 2016 – Farewell to Team J Boom

We always knew the first elimination on Strictly 2016 would be hard, especially when we love all of this year’s cast.

After a brilliant week 2, tonight we said farewell to Team J Boom, aka Melvin and Janette. It was always going to be hard to say goodbye to someone (can’t they all stay?). Given the circumstances, we know health does what come first and we  hope that Anastacia is OK as that injury sounded painful.

Janette and Melvin have made us smile with their infectious smiles & fun routines over the past few weeks. We’re sure they’ll remain friends for life.

Not only did they dance, but they brought us the Team J Boom dab:

https://twitter.com/jmanrara/status/773892647165562880.

They helped us make our very first GIF:

And they brought us two awesome routines which had energy, lots of content and great dancing! Their strictly journey may have been short but sweet and we’d have loved to have seen them stay on in the show for a few more weeks, but we’ll always remember them for these two awesome dances.


We’d like this post to become a tribute to them. Comment below with your messages of support for them before Thursday. We’d also like you to help us make a little video. Send us your Team J Boom Dabs before Thursday & we’ll make a video to send to Janette and Melvin!

Strictly 2016 – Week 2 Performance Review

Pandas, Anton’s Trousers and Charlestons

Earlier tonight, the fab-u-lous fifteen couples took to the floor for the second time in what was a mammoth Strictly Show!

Tomorrow night we will have to say goodbye to one couple. We wish that everyone could stay, as we love them all and it seems far too soon to be saying goodbye to someone. Many couples upped their game. There were injuries and changes to choreography but all in all it was a fab-u-lous show!

The show opened with Ore and Jo who became firemen for a day and performed a very hot Cha Cha Cha. It was smoking and they opened the show up warming up a cold evening with a sizzling dance. Ore’s performance ability is brilliant and we feel this will get him far. The judges awarded them 27/40 (which my little girl pointed out was 3 9s (999.) In our opinion they deserved a 9!

Next up were Claudia and AJ who performed a romantic, elegant and fluid Waltz which truly lit up the ballroom. We loved Claudia’s dress, as did many of you, and loved AJ’s inventive choreography. The judges awarded them 27/40 and in our opinion, they deserved a 9 too!

Third up tonight were Will and Karen with a fifties inspired Rock and Roll Jive! We loved the feel of this dance and thought they captured the spirit and feel of the dance perfectly. Karen’s choreography was inventive and challenging for Will and he did very well. The judges had a bit of an argument over the performance but we disagreed. Will also pulled a muscle, and we wanted to #helpwill from home. The judges again awarded them 27/40. In our opinion he deserved a 9.

Lesley and Anton then took to the floor with a cheeky Cha Cha Cha! We must make a point that Anton’s trousers stole the show (once again!) We’d love a pair of trousers like those from Santa for Christmas *adds to her Christmas list* We admire Lesley’s energy and how she commits to a character in every dance. Technically it wasn’t perfect but in our opinion she deserved a 7! Our judges awarded her 26/40. We also thought Anton’s trousers deserved 40/40 themselves!

Greg and Natalie then took to the floor for their Tango, to a surprising song choice (Jump by Van Halen.) The choreography was good and the costumes left us green with envy. Greg’s stick-out bum did become a bone of contention with the judges. We really enjoyed the dance and loved Greg’s focus and agression in the dance. In our opinion, he deserved an 8, the judges awarded him 26/40.

We were then taken on a trip to the seaside with Tameka and Gorka and their fun Charleston. Tameka, as an actress, does really well in the character driven dances, and this was no exception! It was truly awesome, entertaining and epic! We love this partnership and can’t wait to see what other dances they have up their sleeves. They deserved a 9 in our opinion. The judges awarded them a well-deserved 30/40!

Laura and Giovanni then wowed us with a beautiful, elegant waltz which made our eyes ever so slightly leaky. It was gorgeous. We really do love Giovanni’s choreography and the dance he choreographed suited Laura’s strengths perfectly. In our opinion it was worthy of a 10. Our judges awarded them 32/40.

We took a trip from the seaside back to a hotel next, for Melvin and Janette’s Tango. Janette’s choreography is always inventive and Melvin perfomed with agression and passion. It wasn’t the best technically, but he gave his all and improved a lot from the first dance. In our opinion it was worthy of a 7! The judges awarded them 23/40.

Next up were Louise and Kevin with a beautiful Viennese Waltz. The Team Louvin (as they are known) Fist Bump has become a thing in our house now, so whenever they perform we give a fist bump. Once again, Kevin’s choreography was inventive, original and played to Louise’s strengths. It was beautiful, fluid and elegant and the whole dance got us in a whirl. My 6 year old was super quiet whilst watching this dance she enjoyed it so much. The judges awarded them 32/40. In our opinion, they deserved a 10!

Anastacia and Brendan then performed a sassy Salsa. We learnt that she had an accident in rehearsals and they had to change the choreography at the last minute. Anything like that would normally shatter a person’s confidence, but team Sassypants (as they’re known in our house) or Team Latinastacia performed brilliantly and deserved an 8 in our opinion. The judges awarded them a disappointing 22/40.

Next up was the most eagerly awaited dance of Strictly 2016, from Ed and Katya. Yes, Team Glitterballs performed a Charleston. Most of you agreed that it was worth the licence fee alone. It was pure entertainment and Ed did a spectacular job. He is what strictly is about; trying your hardest and embracing all that glitters. We loved it and felt it deserved a 9. The judges awarded him a respectable 23/40!

Naga and Pasha then channeled Tina Turner for a Cha Cha Cha full of attitude. Naga looked gorgeous and we loved her dress and hair! The dance itself was good and Naga performed it with great rhythm. We really enjoyed it, but once again felt that nerves got the better of her. We awarded her an 8. The judges awarded her 21/40.

Judge Rinder and Oksana then performed the most adorable American Smooth ever. My 6 year old has decided that should she ever perform an American Smooth, she wants to perform it to this song and wearing Oksana’s dress. We loved it. This guy can dance and can perform. We predict he will go very far. We gave him a 9. 

Our penultimate couple of the evening were Daisy and Aljaz who performed a cheeky Cha Cha Cha which was as cute as cherry pie! It was precise and another brilliant performance from Daisy. We did love the choreography, the outfits and felt it deserved a 10. The judges had a dispute about a ‘lift’ and awarded her 30/40. We must also point, there was a panda in their training room. If you want to get our votes, put a panda in the room. 

The final couple performed the dance of the night in our opinion. It was Danny and Oti with a Viennese Waltz which had a great story behind it. It had passion, agression and romance all in one. It was truly wonderful and this moment from it, has to be our GIF of the week:

In our opinion, he deserved a 10. Our judges awarded him a very well deserved 32/40!

At the end of week 2, we had Louise and Kevin and Danny and Oti in the top spot with Team Glitterballs at the bottom. 

Who were your favourites this week? Comment below to let us know or tweet @scd_support. 

We’re back tomorrow from 7.15pm for the Strictly results show. We hope to see you then.

Strictly 2016 – Our Predictions ahead of week 2!

It’s Tuesday which means one thing during Strictly season…. It’s Tunes on Tuesday time *cheers*

On tonight’s It Takes Two we learnt the dances, the class of Strictly 2016 will be performing this week and also the songs they will be dancing to!

As we will be doing every week this series, we have added them to our Strictly 2016 Spotify playlist. Here’s a link so you can follow and listen to the tunes week by week:

It may be hard for us to predict who will land top of the leaderboard this week, however here are our thoughts on the songs and dances for week 2!

Anastacia and Brendan will be performing a Salsa to Sax by Fleur East!

My 6 year old has nicknamed this couple “Mr and Mrs Sassypants” after their sassy Cha Cha Cha full of attitude last week. We’re pretty sure this Salsa will be just as full of sauce and spice and will suit this couple perfectly! We can’t wait to see Team Sassypants perform again this weekend!

Claudia and AJ will be performing the Waltz to You Light Up My Life by Whitney Houston.

Fact: Neither of these two were born when this song was originally released *feels very old* After last week’s acrobatic Cha Cha, we predict this will be an elegant waltz full of grace and poise! Together these two are such a great match and have good chemistry (as friends) so we think they’ll be able to pull off a beautiful and emotional waltz!

Daisy and Aljaz will be performing a Cha Cha Cha to Forget You by Cee Lo Green.

Last week, she danced an unforgettable waltz to Unforgettable. This week she’s dancing a Cha Cha Cha to Forget You. We spot a theme going on with the song. After a beautifully elegant waltz, it’ll be good to see Daisy let her hair down and perform a Cha Cha Cha. We predict this performance could be truly epic! 

Danny and Oti are performing a Viennese Waltz to Never Tear Us Apart by INXS

Danny has the dance ability of a pro dancer. Oti’s choreography is amazing and we predict this Viennese Waltz will truly wow us. We cannot wait!

Ed and Katya will be performing the Charleston to the Banjo’s Back In Town.

Hands up if you’d never heard of this song before! πŸ™‹πŸ»

Admittedly, we hadn’t either but it’ll make a great Charleston. Ed is working hard and doing his best. He has truly embraced Strictly by the glittery horns. His performances will always be the most eagerly anticipated of the week. We cannot wait to see this performance on Saturday. Team Glitterballs have my vote no matter what happens.

Greg and Natalie are performing the Tango to Jump by Van Halen!

Greg, the Long Jumper will have to jump in this performance. We’ve never heard this song used for a Tango before, but are sure that Natalie will choreograph an awesome routine which will impress us. For a tall man, Greg is very very light on his feet and has a focus that will suit the Tango’s character perfectly. We cannot wait to see this dance either!

Judge Rinder and Oksana are performing American Smooth to Marvin Gaye

Last week, the Judge surprised us with his ability and performance skill in the Cha Cha. This is a very interesting choice for an American Smooth and it’ll be great to see him in hold!

Laura and Giovanni are performing a Waltz to If I Ain’t Got You by Alicia Keys

If this dance doesn’t make your eyes leak there’s something wrong with you. Laura showed us great potential last week in the Cha Cha Cha and we predict she’ll be a real contender for the glitterball this year. We think GIovanni will be singing along in rehearsals 😘 and predict this will be a beautiful performance.

Lesley and Anton will be performing a Cha Cha Cha to Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps

We predict this will be a classy Cha Cha Cha which we cannot wait to see. Lesley has a lot of energy, so we think her Latin dances will be great!

Louise and Kevin will be performing a Viennese Waltz to Hallelujah

We’ve always wanted a dance to be performed to this, it’s one of our all-time favourite songs. Last week Louise spun around so fast in the jive we think the Viennese waltz will be no problem, especially with Kevin as her teacher. It may even top the leaderboard!

Melvin and Janette are performing the Tango to Moving on Up by M People

Another unusual but interesting song choice. We felt Melvin was undermarked last week, so think this song is appropriate as he can move up the leaderboard. With Janette as his teacher he’s in very good hands. Her choreography is always imaginative and original.  Can he perfect the aggressive Tango look? We think he can! His performance last week was awesome. We can’t wait to see his Tango face this week! 😠

Naga and Pasha are performing a Cha Cha Cha to A Fool In Love by Tina Turner

Naga admitted before dancing the waltz it was her least favourite dance. It is nerve wracking performing in front of a live audience, but Pasha is the perfect pro to calm her down. We think this dance will be cheeky and can’t wait to see it! 

Ore and Joanne are performing a Cha Cha Cha to Hot Stuff by Donna Summer!

This guy can dance and Jo’s choreography is always imaginative, playing to her celebrity’s strengths. We predict it’ll be an awesome performance which may top the leaderboard!

Tameka and Gorka are performing the Charleston to Yes, Sir she’s my baby!

As an actress, Tameka is great at performing a character and we feel she’ll capture the spirit and character of the Charleston perfectly. We loved Gorka’s  Paso Doble choreography last week, so can’t wait to see his efforts with the Charleston this week!

Will and Karen will be Jiving to Rock Around the Clock

Will can dance and we think the Jive will be a great 2nd dance for him. He has one of the best teachers for Jive of the pros and from the looks of It Takes Two tonight, he has been working hard and sweating a lot  This can only be a good sign. We can’t wait to see him do a more cheery dance and think this will suit his happy character!

So there are our thoughts on the week 2 dances. Who can’t you wait to see take to the floor this week? Tweet us @scd_support or comment below to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.

Strictly fever has officially hit the nation with the first 5 Strictly 2016 celebrities being announced. All we can say is we’re sure this year’s Strictly will be better than ever!

  • Former Politican Ed Balls
  • Singer Will Young
  • TV Presenter Laura Whitmore
  • Sports Presenter Ore Oduba

2) There seems to be much excitement around this year’s announcement and the Celebs who have been announced all seem to be getting in the mood for Strictly and practising their dancing. They do look good if we say so ourselves:

3) The pros have been hard at work rehearsing again and it’d seem the pro boys are ready to battle for Laura:

4) There have been bruises:

5) Friendships are forming:

6) And once again there has been cake (to celebrate the lovely Oti’s birthday! – Happy Birthday Oti!) 

That’s a brief round up of what’s happened this week on Planet Strictly!

Strictly 2015 – Week 2 – The Verdict from @philkidz

Throughout the series, we have a truly fabulous panel of experts giving us their opinions on the week’s performances.

This week it’s the turn of the People’s Strictly’s Phil Barnett to give us his opinion on the dances. We asked him what he thought of the dances before the results show and after the results show.

So Phil, who were your favourites this week? Who surprised you and who do you think is most in danger of the dreaded E word (elimination! – asked after Saturday’s live show.)

Week 2 was another brilliant week! There are so many good dancers this year! 

Peter & Janette sailed through their quickstep, Jay & Aliona were strong as were Anton & Katie & Gleb & Anita. Aljaz & Helen were hot, hot, hot! I think Iwan & Carol might be in trouble although I like them both! Daniel surprised me by having fun & dancing on his own!  They’re all great. I wish it was me there.

Looking back at the results show, what did you think of it. Did you think the right person went home?

I suppose it is the right result but you could see how much Iwan loved it and wanted to stay and improve! It’s a shame they can’t all have a couple of weeks dancing on screen before someone has to leave! (we agree! *changes the Strictly Rulebook*)  I’m pleased for Jamelia as she will improve each week if she gets the chance! 

I loved the show and the professional performances were amazing. Janette must have been very dizzy spinning around up there!

    

Thank you Phil for your fab-u-lous review of week 2’s performances. We’ll be continuing these mini interviews throughout the series with our panel of experts.

Strictly 2014 – Out of the mouths of babes – Week 2

We know that Strictly appeals to all ages from 0-101, so I’m letting beautiful ballet and dance obsessed 4 year old, Bella, give her views on every show each week. This week we’ve been battling with the “E” word in our house, so our review is distinctly unbiased (even though she really wants to get the glitterball to Grimsby!) I took a few minutes out of her busy day colouring in, sprinkling glitter and pretending to be a princess to ask her her thoughts on last night’s dances.

πŸ‘© Mummy (Me) : So Bella. What did you think of last night’s show?
πŸ‘Έ Bella: Well mummy! It was sparkly, fun and everyone danced really well. They all were so good, nobody should go home!
πŸ‘©: Someone will have to go home tonight though sweetie. Who do you think it should be?
πŸ‘Έ: Craig! Because he was being grumpy and mean!
πŸ‘©: Only couples can go poppet. Craig needs to stay as he’s a judge!
πŸ‘Έ: Well, Darcey and Len should teach him to be nicer as it’s not nice to be horrible to people when they’re trying their hardest.
πŸ‘©: So we saw Thom and Iveta dancing first. What did you think of their dance?
πŸ‘Έ: I liked Iveta’s swimming costume. They looked like they were having lots of fun dancing Salsa together. I didn’t think the judges were nice to Thom as he was first to dance, so must have been very nervous. I’ll give him my bunny rabbit next week as she helps me relax when I get scared. I’d give him a 7/10.
πŸ‘©: Mummy agrees completely. The next couple we saw were Jenny and Tristan dancing a Waltz. What did you think of them?
πŸ‘Έ: Jenny looked like a princess dancing with her Prince Charming. They come from Eye-land (Ireland) and live in a castle! I really liked their dance and she was doing her best but the judges were really mean to her again.
πŸ‘©: I’m not sure they live in a castle together, but they did do their best. What score would you give them, sweetie?
πŸ‘Έ: Because she looked pretty, I’ll give her a 7/10. You let me vote for her too, mummy! I hope she doesn’t go home.
πŸ‘©: Don’t worry sweetie. I think she’ll be safe. What did you think of Simon and Kristina’s Tango?
πŸ‘Έ: I don’t like the Tango as they always look scary and grumpy.
πŸ‘©: Tango is supposed to look that way, sweetheart.
πŸ‘Έ: If it is, they did a good job. I liked Kristina’s dress too! I give them an 8/10.
πŸ‘©: Onto our next couple, Gregg and Aliona. What did you think of that dance, Bella?
πŸ‘Έ: I liked it because he baked a cake and gave it to Aliona which is nice. They looked like they were having lots of fun and I wanted to join in too. I wasn’t watching their dance too much as I was dancing, but I really liked it. I’d give them a 6/10
πŸ‘©: We then saw Alison and Aljaz’s Foxtrot. What did you think of their dance sweetie?
πŸ‘Έ: You need to like foxes to dance the foxtrot well. I think she danced it really well because she borrowed Kevin from Grimsby’s glasses. They make you dance better. She must like foxes too! She gets a 7/10 from me
πŸ‘©: She must do, sweetheart. We then saw Jake and Janette’s Salsa! What did you think of that dance?
πŸ‘Έ: (impersonates Craig Revel Horwood) It was a-may-zing mummy! Janette needed the hammock to lie down in, as she must have been really tired after all those lifts. You said Jake looked like a snake mummy, but I don’t think so, he looks like a person! I give him a 10/10(For the record, I called him Snakehips Jakey!)
πŸ‘©: We then saw Judy and Anton dancing a Cha Cha Cha… (gets interrupted!)
πŸ‘Έ: NO mummy! They weren’t dancing, they were playing tennis and dancing!
πŸ‘©: Ok, dancing and playing tennis then. What did you think of it?
πŸ‘Έ: I liked her dress and she knows how to hit the ball (and the camera too!) I wasn’t too sure about her dancing as she didn’t look like she was having too much fun. She needs my rabbit to help her relax and then she’ll do really well. The judges were too mean to her as well. I’d give her a 6/10.
πŸ‘©: Next were Caroline and Pasha dancing a Tango. What did you think of this dance?
πŸ‘Έ: I liked Caroline’s dress. She looked really grumpy which you said is how she’s supposed to look. I liked the dance too. I’d give her 8/10
πŸ‘©: For the next dance we saw Tim and Natalie dancing a waltz. What did you think of their dance?
πŸ‘Έ: Natalie IS a princess mummy! She must be Cinderella. I’m not sure if Tim is a prince, but I really liked their dance. I’m not sure why it made you cry though mummy. You shouldn’t be upset, because it was a nice dance! I gave them 7/10
πŸ‘©: Mummy cried happy tears sweetheart. *gets cuddled* Thank you for giving mummy lots of cuddles though, they helped.
πŸ‘Έ: You’re welcome mummy. Can we move on now, I’m getting bored?
πŸ‘©: OK sweetie. We then saw Sunetra and Brendan with a cheeky cha-cha-cha.
πŸ‘Έ: I really liked this lady as she was having lots of fun. She’s also really busy and reminds me a little bit of Belle from last year (she means Susanna.) and can dance really well. She gets 8/10 from me.
πŸ‘©: I agree with you poppet. We then saw Mark and Karen dancing an American Smooth. What did you think of their dance?
πŸ‘Έ: I LOVED it! I want Karen’s dress as she looked like Princess Jasmine. I think I need to grow up a bit to wear it though, so I’m working on it. They looked magical and sparkly together and danced really well. I give them a 9/10.
πŸ‘©: Next up were Scott and Joanne with their Tango. What did you think of it?
πŸ‘Έ: Scott looked like he was dancing in wellies in the mud mummy. (I think she means stompy) He tried his hardest and didn’t look too grumpy. The music was nice too. I really liked them and voted for them too. I think he did a lot better than last week. I give him a 6/10.
πŸ‘©: We then saw Pixie and Trent dance their Waltz together. What did you think of their dance this week?
πŸ‘Έ: They looked beautiful and she looked like a ballerina mummy. I want to dance like her when I’m taller. I give her a 9/10.
πŸ‘©: What did you think of Steve and Ola’s cha cha cha sweetie?
πŸ‘Έ: I like Steve because he’s always happy and looks like he’s having lots of fun. He danced really well too, so I don’t think the judges were watching the same dance. I give him a 7/10.
πŸ‘©: I agree sweetie. He always looks very enthusiastic. *explains what enthusiastic means to a 4 year old.*
πŸ‘Έ: Yes mummy. Now are you going to ask me about my favourite the next couple?
πŸ‘©: Of course sweetie! What did you think of Frankie and Kevin with their Charleston?
πŸ‘Έ: I was slightly confused. Last year they made him dress up as a doggy for his Charleston. This year they made him dress up as fozzy bear from the muppets, but he didn’t look like fozzy bear.
πŸ‘©: They turned him into the Fonz from Happy Days *shows her pictures of Happy Days!*
πŸ‘Έ: That makes more sense mummy. I wonder what they’ll make him dress up as next year for a Charleston. I really liked this dance and it looked like they had lots of fun. For me, I’d give them a 9/10.
πŸ‘©: Thank you Bella. Who were your favourites last night?
πŸ‘Έ: I liked them all, but I liked Jake and Janette and Frankie and Kevin best. Can I make a poll again?
πŸ‘©Of course you can Bella. We’ll decide on which dance our followers thought was best and reveal the answer on Thursday. All you have to do is vote in the poll below to choose top 3 routines this week. Get voting people!

We’ll be back at 7.20pm with a Results show chat. Hope you can join us then.
