Evil Barbie's 'Strictly Come Dancing' Critique 2011


Well it's another year gone by & 'Strictly' is back on our TV screen, and as I do Critiques for 'Xfactor' & 'Dancing On Ice' I thought it only fair, that I did one for 'Strictly' too!! As like the other two, my late mum & I use to watch it & call each other, during the VT's or adverts (Depending on show) to say what we thought, of each act. We also use to cringe about, Brucie's very appalling jokes!... So with contestant's, this year, like Nancy Dell'Olio, Edwina Curry & camp as a row of tents Russell Grant, I know this year would provide plenty to talk about!....



So here is Evil Barbies take on 'Strictly Come Dancing' I have no ballroom expertise, my only dancing knowledge is, Belly Dancing & enjoying myself down the nightclub's... but that's never stopped me having an opinion, so here is my tongue in cheek view of the show & I hope you enjoy, but if you don't ...... Tough!! If you do you can also hear me talk about the Show on 'The Bay Radio' 102.8FM on a Sunday around 3pm

On the 1st two shows (Friday & Saturday) The celebrity's get to show off their Ballroom Waltz or Latin Cha-cha-cha, They get points for their performances, but nobody is sent home & there is no public vote, but their points are carried over to show 3. Show 3 the celebrity's that danced a Ballroom Waltz last time, do a Latin Salsa & those who did the Latin Cha-cha-cha, will do the Ballroom Foxtrot!...  Show 3 the points count, for half their scores, plus there is a public vote to make up the other half of their score & the results of who's going home are on Sundays show! 


So Who Are This Years Celebrity's? 
And Who Are They Dancing With? 

The celebrity's I've never heard of, or have never seen before tonight, are marked with a **
  1. Rory Bremner (Impressionist) & Erin Boag 
  2. Edwina Curry (Ex Conservative MP) & Vincent Simone 
  3. Robbie Savage (Manchester United Footballer)** & Ola Jordan 
  4. Russell Grant (Astrologer) & Flavia Cacace
  5. Dan Lobb (Sports Presenter on Daybreak) & Katya Virshilas 
  6. Lulu (Singer) & Brendan Cole
  7. Audley Harrison (Boxer)** & Natalie Lowe
  8. Jason Donovan (Singer) & Kristina Rihanoff
  9. Harry Judd (McFly's Drummer) & Aliona Vilani 
  10. Nancy Dell'Olio (Business Woman!!??) & Anton Du Beke 
  11. Alex Jones (The One Show, Presenter) & James Jordan
  12. Holly Valance (Singer - Actress) & Artem Chigvintsev 
  13. Anita Dobson (Actress - Eastenders) & Robin Windsor
  14. Chelsee Healey (Actress - Waterloo Rd)** & Pasha Kovalev 

So that's the line up, let the dancing begin!!! Who will the judges Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli & Alisha Dickson, LOVE & who will they HATE?? And will all Bruce Forsyth's jokes be cringe making? Or will he have a few OK or even a good one in there somewhere. We are about to find out!!...

Show One, Friday 30th September 

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black tie & tails & Co Host, Tess Daly in a disappointing, violet, knee length, shift dress, which was shapeless & did nothing for her, you could tell when she moved slightly sideways that it had some kind of waterfall (or similar) detail on the back, but as she was presenting head on to camera throughout the show, we never got to see it, so it was a poor choice for the show (Sack the stylist) Lovely shoes though! But on to the performances, and 1st up, out of tonight's 7 of 14 celebrity's & starting off the new series was Australian, Singing & Acting Beauty, Holly Valance....


Nice Shoes Tess, Shame about the Dress

1) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'I Just Wanna Dance' (Who's That Chick) Holly looked cute in a quite 60's (Austin Powers-esque) Gold sequinned, mini dress, with larger sequins near the hem & big 60's hair, Artem in a gold short sleeved shirt edged in black, worn with black tight trousers. Holly showed some good Movement, Timing & Posture, and looked to be enjoying herself, she made a Good Effort for her 1st dance, especially as she was the 1st celeb that danced, which must of added to her nerves. No doubt will improve as she goes along, I think she may last a while in the competition!!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 28


 Holly & Artem, Just Wanna Dance 

2) Dan Lobb & Katya - Dancing The Waltz, to 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' Dan wore a goldish yellow shirt & tie with his black trousers & tail coat, Katya wore a gorgeous, long, sparkly, pale primrose, flowing gown, with one matching armlet, on her left arm, she had matching, primrose coloured, roses, on her left shoulder with a swathe of fabric hanging from it & her hair up. Dan was very Elegant & Graceful across the floor, but his face looked a bit serious & grimaced, probably due to nerves. Not bad seeing he is a lot taller than his partner, tall guy's seem to struggle more with dancing on strictly for some reason. 

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (6) Total score 24



3) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'I Got the Music In Me' Lulu wore a purple frilly, asymmetrical mini dress, Brendan a matching purple shirt & tight black trousers. It was a fairly good attempt, although you could see that it wasn't quite how the routine should of gone! As Lulu, had a lost, dazed, panicked, look in her eyes at times! Like she had suddenly got a dancing mental block! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (2) Len (5) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 17 



4) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Waltz to, 'In The Arms Of The Angel's' Audley in white tie & tails, Natalie in a gorgeous empire line, long strappy dress, with a gold top part & coral from below the bust line. Audley was very light on his feet, and danced gracefully for a big, tall muscular, man, good effort. 

The Judges Marks - Craig (3) Len (5) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 20

5) Robbie Savage & Ola - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'Bad Boys' Robbie wore a rather trendy looking, black hoodie, without sleeves, with a diagonal front zip fasten with 'Bad 8 Boy' in white on the back (He plays in a No 8 shirt for Man U) with baggy black trousers & Ola didn't wear much at all!!! But what there was, was a baby blue & silver, thin string bikini, with a bit of fringing! Very, very, sexy! The two had good chemistry on the floor, but Robbie did more posing & acting the role of bad boy than actual dancing, Ola provided most of the dancing movement, but he looked good! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (2) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (5) Total score 19


 Bad Boy, Hoodie, Robbie 

6) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The Waltz, to 'Three Times A Lady' Anita wore a pretty, floaty, white backless evening dress, Robin black trousers, shirt & braces & a white long tie. Anita was very elegant & graceful & made it look effortless, but some how their performance didn't excite me, it lacked luster in some way.

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 28



7) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha to 'Venus' (She's Got It) Russell Wore white trousers & a white shirt with a bit of sparkle, plus some silver/white iridescent eye-shadow! Flavia was in a sexy, devilish, red, sequinned, mini dress. The performance was uber camp, with a devilish Flavia, releasing a cherub like, Venus, Russell out of a giant Clam Shell!! And I have to say, white is a slimming colour for Russell, who was surprisingly quick & light on his feet. The routine, was fast paced, fun, with lots of energy & enthusiasm, in fact it was my favourite dance of the night!!.... They saved the best for last!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (5) Alisha (6) Bruno (6)


He's Got It!.... Baby He's Got It!!

So that was the end of the 1st show, and how the 1st 7 Celebrity's did, But how did Brucie do Joke wise?
  1. Cringeworthy Jokes - 7
  2. OK Jokes - 4
  3. Good Jokes - 0
Must try a bit harder Brucie!! .... lets see if they improve over the series, along with the Celebrity's dance skills!

Show Two, Saturday 1st October  

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black tie & tails & Co Host, Tess Daly in a one shouldered, black gown that's long on the right side with a kind of draped over skirt & short on the left, And 1st up, out of tonight's 7 celebrity's & starting off the second show in the new series was McFlys Drummer, Harry Judd....



1) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'I've Got The Moves Like Jagger' Harry wore a black short sleeved shirt edged with gold (The reverse of Artem's shirt, on the 1st dance on show 1) A black waistcoat, plus tight black trousers, Aliona, had a very skimpy, sexy, outfit on. Which was basically just a black, spangled bra & asymmetrical flamenco skirt, edged in gold, attached at one side, to form a cut away dress. It was a smoldering performance, with lots of sexual chemistry! He had good posture, acted out the story well & looked very confident, I was impressed, this may be my favourite dance of the night, if it's not surpassed! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 28 



2) Rory Bremner & Erin - Dancing The Waltz, to 'When Will I Hold You Again?' Rory in white tie & tails, Erin in a beautiful long floaty, silver & pail blue dress. with matching armlets with fabric swathes hanging from them. Rory was Graceful & light on his feet. But I was distracted for the whole dance, by the inane, fixed, camp, smile on his face, that just didn't look natural!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27  



3) Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'When Love Takes Over' Alex in a pretty, short, silver fringes, dress, that didn't seem to have a lot of support inside, nor any under-wiring, to give some support to her ample breasts. James had on tight tuxedo like black trousers & a white sleeveless shirt, that had both solid white & translucent white stripes & was open to the waist. A fairly raunchy routine. But unlike Harry's dance, you couldn't feel any sexual chemistry, between them. Somehow Alex's sexual desire, seemed somewhat focused on herself. But I did enjoy James have a go at Craig, which may have affected their score from Craig though!

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 22



4) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Waltz, to 'Will You Ever' Chelsee wore a very pretty, baby pink, evening dress, with swathes of fabric attached to silver wristbands (Although I felt her hairstyle & the bow in it, cheapened the overall look) Pasha wore classic black trousers, shirt & tails with a long pink tie. She was feminine, graceful, elegant & ladylike (Unlike how Chelsee {who I'd never heard of before} sounded on her VT, when she unfortunately, came across, as a rather dumb chav) It will be interesting to see how she is with the Cha-cha-cha!

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (6) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27 



5) Edwina Curry & Vincent - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'Build Me Up Buttercup' Edwina wore a knee length, age appropriate, red floaty dress, with floaty sleeves, to hide the bingo wings. But OMFG did she have a fight with the make-up artist? Or did the make-up artist, just hate Edwina? The make-up and hair was dreadful & made her look like a bad Drag Queen!! That coupled with a huge diamante droplet collar necklace (Hiding turkey neck??) Which made her look like she had no neck & a huge head, she looked more like a Spitting-Image puppet of herself (Awful) Vincent was in a matching red shirt & obligatory tight black trousers. Bless her she made an effort, but her hips need a bit of oiling, before she'll improve on the Latin dances. But thanks to the make-up & hair, whenever she tried to portray sexy, she looked like a cross between Frankenfurter & Zelda Terrorhawk, spotting a victim!

The Judges Marks - Craig (2) Len (5) Alisha (5) Bruno (5) Total score 17



6) Nancy Dell'Olio & Anton - Dancing The Waltz, to 'In Napoli' Nancy wore a beautiful, floaty, mint, evening gown. with a matching armlets with swathes of fabric & a mint feather boa, which was quite apt, as it's common knowledge that mint compliments 'Mutton' well!! Anton in white tie & tails. The routine started off with Nancy prone, on a chaise, fanning herself with a large black fan, looking haughty! Then Anton lead her to the dance floor, that's when it all went wrong! The feather boa, then produced a repeated costume malfunction, wrapping itself round Anton & Nancy's legs as they danced, as it hung, trailing from her. Why she  (Why she didn't wrap it up away from the floor, or disregard straight away I don't know?) Eventually frustrated she thew it to the floor & they continued. But then she only got to do a few steps before Anton scooped her up! That couldn't of happened to a worse person. Nancy is the vainest & most competitive contestant (Despite being one of the worst) & the one that craves adulation the most! The spoilt performance, must of hurt DEEP! Especially after the one point from Craig!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (1) Len (4) Alisha (3) Bruno (4) Total score 12



7) Jason Donovan  & Kristina - Dancing The Cha-cha-cha, to 'Gimme Some Loving' Jason in black trousers & black spangled shirt. Kristina half naked and super sexy in a bronze bikini top & fringed mini skirt, joined at the front torso, to form a sexy dance dress. Jason danced very well, he had good, fast movement, and looked very confident, but when did Jason start merging into Tony Blair facially?

The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 32


Kristina & Tony Blair Jason Donovan

So that was the end of the 2nd show, and how the 2nd 7 Celebrity's did, But how did Brucie do Joke wise?

Show Three, Saturday 8th October  

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black tie & tails & Co Host, Tess Daly in a, gorgeous Black/Gunmetal knee length, skin tight, strapless, sequined dress (& her hair looked fab too!!) And 1st up, out of tonight's 14 celebrity's & starting off the third show in the new series is Chelsee Healy....

1) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Higher' Chelsee wore white, fringed, trousers, with a bright blue & silver bra that is attached to the trousers, via a strip down the front, her hair was a much better colour & style tonight. Pasha was in a white, shirt & black trousers. Their dance was, fun, fast, polished & enjoyable to watch. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 29, plus last weeks score 27 = 56 



2) Edwina Curry & Vincent - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Bona Sera' Edwina was in a long, blueish purple, dress & a matching facinator, styling wise she's gone from Drag Queen, to Dowager Duchess, Vincent was in a black spiv suit, with purple shirt. There was more acting across a table, than actual dancing, it left me as cold as the buffet on the table! (I think she may be in danger of going tonight)


The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (5) Alisha (5) Bruno (5) Total score 19, plus last weeks s score 17 = 36 



3) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Don't Stop Till You Get Enough' Audley was dressed in a bright, mustard, yellow & black, unflattering, one piece jumpsuit. While Natalie wore a pretty, white, knee-length floaty dress, with cut out sides, sheer chiffon skirt panels & jet jewellery. The two vastly different outfits, so didn't go together!! A fare routine, but his arms looked a bit stiff when he moved them (Probably due to his muscly biceps!) Some rhythmic movement in his grinding. But nothing special. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 23, plus last weeks score 20 = 43



4) Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Have You Met Miss Jones?' Alex wore a gorgeous hot pink, backless dress, with accents of red, plus a huge hot pink ostrich feather fan. James was in black tails & shirt with a long hot pink tie. Alex gave the fan to the Mcfly boys in the audience, early into the routine. Alex did the Foxtrot well, she was graceful, elegant & ladylike, she made it look effortless. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (8) Total score 29, plus last weeks score 22 = 51 



5) Dan Lobb & Katya - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Upside Down' Dan wore black trousers & white shirt, with an untied, pink, bow tie round his neck. Katya wore a girlie, pail pink, floaty, mini dress, Dan started off with a back flip. But most, of the rest of the routine was Katya dancing & Dan doing lifts & not much dancing!! He seemed a bit 'Comedy Dave' off of 'Dancing On Ice' the whole thing was about as bland as Dan's tweets, on Twitter! If breakfast television, housewives didn't fancy him, he'd be in danger of going!


The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (5) Total score 21, plus last weeks score 24 = 45 



6) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Break Even' Lulu is in a very girly, feminine, long floaty, turquoise, evening dress, with marabou feather trim, at the shoulders. Brendan is in a white shirt, grey trousers & waistcoat, with a long turquoise tie. They started off staring into a mirror & then went into a slow motion routine, then sped into the dancing. Better than before, this time, she didn't look like she was struggling to recall the steps, the routine ended with them back at the mirror.


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (6) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 25, plus last weeks score 17 = 42



7) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The Samba, to 'Mas Que Nada' Holly wore a very sexy electric blue, one shouldered, typically Latin American, dance dress, with a full frilled & feathered skirt, long at the back & short at the front. Artem wore very dark chocolate trousers & an open dark chocolate jacket, with no shirt. Their routine was both cute & sexy & Holly danced well, finishing with the splits at the end. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 30, plus last weeks score 28 = 58 



8) Rory Bremner & Erin - Danced The Salsa, to 'Vehicle'. Rory wore black trousers & black shirt, with spangled stripes at the front, open to the waist. Erin had a spangly gold bra on with a short gold salsa skirt with yellow, orange & red frills. They did a good, fun, fast routine & Rory showed he had rhythm. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 22, plus last weeks score 27 = 49   



9) Robbie Savage & Ola - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Ain't That A Kick In The Head' Robbie was dressed in a very pale, pink, shirt, with a silver tie & black trousers & tails. Ola wore a gorgeous, white dress, with a very pale pink, bust area, trimmed in silver gems, with a multi split, 7 veils looking, skirt part. He showed this time he can dance & not just posture, he moved smoothly across the dance floor & looked confident. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 29, plus last weeks score 19 = 48


10) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Jump In the Line' Anita looked a bit mutton, in a kind of 'Raggy Dolls Does Salsa'. Wearing a multi coloured, multi print, dress & facinator. Robin in a white, sleeveless, shirt, with large black spots & black trousers. A fun routine, but you could tell she slipped up a bit & made a mistake at one point. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Anita (7) Bruno (7) Total score 28, plus last weeks 28 = 56



11) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Why Don't You Do Right' Jason wore a white shirt, black trousers & red braces, red bow tie (untied) and a red trilby hat. Kristina wore a stunning 'Jessica Rabbit' style dress, they glided effortlessly across the floor, and Jason put his acting to good use in telling the story. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Alisha (9) Bruno (8) Total score 33, plus last weeks score 32 = 65



12) Nancy Dell'Olio & Anton - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Papa Loves Mambo' Nancy wore a nude coloured, sequinned, salsa dress, with green & orange trim on the hem, and cut out hip area. Anton wore tight, black, trousers, a white satin shirt & a black sequinned jacket. With Nancy being a Latin firecracker, I expected her to be in her element. And with the cut out hips on her dress, I expected lots of hip action!! I was disappointed, She put energy & enthusiasm into it, but no skill, or technique & I felt she forgot the routine & tried to blag it free style!!.. I think she could well be out tonight. As unlike Edwina, she does not ooze the likability factor, and she is NOT the Only novelty act!! So I can't even see her winning any, underdog sympathy votes, off of the public, especially as she then mentioned she had an injury (AFTER) she'd danced poorly & had NOT mentioned that in the coverage of her training VT!!  Nor was it mentioned before she danced! Excuses excuses Nancy!!!! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (3) Len (5) Alisha (2) Bruno (4) Total score 14, plus last weeks 12 = 26



13) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Foxtrot, to 'Just The Way You Are' Harry wore a white shirt with a cravat & black trousers & a  waistcoat, Aliona wore a lovely, long, lacy, mint, evening dress, with feather trim. The two have a really good connection & lots of chemistry & they glided across the floor with grace & confidence (Hmmmmm if they don't have partners, do I spot the start of a 'Strictly' romance beginning??)


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (6) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 27, plus last weeks 28 = 55



14) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Dancing Queen' Russell wore black trousers, with an electric blue shirt, with hot pink & electric blue ruffled sleeves. Flavia wore a gorgeous, sexy, sparkly salsa dress with a feathered skirt, longer at the back than front. Another fun, energy packed performance from Russell who is becoming my guilty pleasure, he showed he can move & is light on his feet, he also did a 2nd Latin number in a row, like Holly (I thought it was meant to be one Latin & one Ballroom each, to show off their ability's in each!??) Russell was labeled as being, the John Sargent of this weeks strictly, by some journalists. But unlike John, Russell CAN actually Dance!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (7) Total score 25, plus last weeks 21 = 46



So tomorrow the results are in.... Who's going? My money is on Edwina & Nancy being the bottom two, with Nancy going, which will be the worst thing to happen to Nancy, as in her mind, I think she expects to win!!!.... But Nancy is the worst, even Lulu who forgot her routine was better.... So it would be fair if Nancy Went.... But the public is a odd lot, so we will see!!......


The Results Show, Sunday 9th October 

The Show Results: The 1st bunch of celebrity's to be saved were...
  1. Robbie Savage 
  2. Lulu
  3. Jason Donovan
  4. Alex Jones
  5. Holly Valance
  6. Chelsee Healey 
The 1st in the bottom two & in danger is Audley Harrison (Didn't see that coming, must have been that ugly jumpsuit) Then it was the next bunch of safe celeb's.... 
  1. Anita Dobson 
  2. Rory Bremner
  3. Dan Lobb
  4. Harry Judd
  5. Russell Grant
Only two left, the two I thought would be the bottom two, Nancy & Edwina (Surly it's Nancy I thought) But no Nancy was safe, wow who did she sleep with or bribe to vote for her constantly? Maybe she did get the pity vote? Maybe he sudden injury mention, fooled a gullible public? 

So it was down to Edwina & Audley, so it wasn't hard to guess who had the least votes!!..... Yup bye bye Edwina!!.... I think the make-up & wardrobe dept, have a big a part in your downfall, as your lack of dancing skills!!.....

**************


Show Four, Saturday 15th October  



The Show Starts, with the professional dancers doing a routine to 'One Singular Sensation' who are then joined in the routine by the celebrity's. Then Brucie in his usual black tie & tails, with a blue & black patterned waistcoat & Co Host, Tess Daly in a long black, shift dress, with a large lace V-panel at the front & thin gold belt, with unkempt wavy hair which didn't suit her, which had roots that badly needed bleaching!! And 1st up, out of tonight's thirteen celebrity's & starting off the show's 'Broadway' theme, is Australian singer, Holly Valance....



1) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The Tango, to Chicago's "Cell Block Tango" Holly wore a very sexy black, sheer body stocking, with a black bra & strapped abdomen area, with a jet, jewel, encrusted neckline, straight, strip skirt, back & front & sheer over hips, no sides & black bob wig. Artem wore black pinstriped trousers, with a sheer black vest & black braces. Their routine was both cute & sexy & Holly danced well, they smoldered together, she looked sexy, even her heel catching in skirt didn't phase her and she came out of it well, and continued dancing looking totally un-phased.


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (8) Total score 30. 


 Artem - He Had It Coming!!


2) Dan Lobb & Katya - Dancing The Viennese Waltz, to 'Somebody To love' From We Will Rock You. Dan wore black trousers & grey shirt, with a electric blue tie & black satin waistcoat, with black, jet, encrusted back. Katya wore a long, floaty dress, the bodice was silver spangled & tight, the sides a beaded a black spangly jet. The skirt was a full, floaty, electric blue, chiffon. Dan was not bad, he was foot sure, he didn't make any cock up's, but it wasn't a very exciting performance. I think he could actually be in danger, if it wasn't for the fact, that housewives fancy him, and there will be a breakfast TV fan-base!

The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (7) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 24.

3) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The Jive, to 'You Can't Stop The Beat'  From Hairspray. Anita looked a better tonight, in a Hot Pink 50's/60's style, dress, with a white petticoat & silver band at waist, plus a flicked brunette wig, with blonde streaked fringe & big Hot Pink bow in her hair. Robin was in a white shirt, pale grey suit, matching bow tie, spats & Hot Pink pocket hankie. A fast, lively, fun routine, but still didn't wow me, I'm, afraid. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Anita (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27.




4) Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Viennese Waltz, to 'Memory' From CatsAlex wore a long dress, with a nude bejeweled body to the hip, with a lilac full floaty, satin-ish skirt, to be honest, along with both of Edwina's outfits & Anita's last week, it was definitely one of my least favourite female outfits. James was in a purple suit & white shirt with a black tie & hankie. Alex was graceful & the routine was simple & well danced, but not very exciting. Could be at risk!

The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 32.

5) Rory Bremner & Erin - Danced The Quickstep, to 'Top Hat, White Tie & Tails' From Top Hat. Rory wore a top hat & white tie. Erin had a gorgeous white, backless, dress on with a full, tiered, floaty skirt covered with ostrich feathers, with a jewel encrusted band around waist, with a see-through lace body to hips with pretty floaty short, lace bell sleeves. They did a good, smooth dance, but you could tell that 'Lionel Blair' had helped Rory. As Rory had a Very camp looking, fixed smile on his face. Which was a tad off putting, but a good routine & a very confident performance!! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 31.



6) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Rumba, to 'All I Ask Of You' From The Phantom Of the OperaLulu is dressed in a very girly, feminine, white, floaty, ragged, calf length dress, with a black right sleeve that seemed to bleed into the side seam of the dress. Nice hair with the added extensions & white flowers around back. Brendan is in tight black trousers, a sheer black shirt & a long hooded cape. I think that Lulu was a tad better than before, but hard to say, as Lulu's last performance, was a lot better than her earlier one! He is also still carrying her through the routines quite a bit though & there was also an illegal lift. Naughty boy Brendan.


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 26.



7) Nancy Dell'Olio & Anton - Dancing The Tango, to 'Be Italian' From NineNancy wore a raunchy Red/Hot Pink flamenco style dress, with black laced up sides & back, to the corset like top of the dress, with black fishnet tights & garter. Anton was in a black velvet, jacketed tuxedo, with a black shirt & tie. The routine started off with Nancy on a chair, flashing her legs. The dancing was a big improvement on the last two dances (But that's not really hard) Yet another Latin dance. She looked moody, but didn't smoulder!! Although she is a Latin Italian, she failed to put Latin passion into her Tango!! Disappointing except for the start... It kind of fizzled out! But she may get through, as I think Dan & Alex were worse!

Be Italian - Nancy & Find Some Passion!!


8) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'Too Damn Hot' From Kiss Me Kate. Audley was dressed in a bright red waistcoat, over a white shirt, with black trousers. Natalie wore a pretty, white, backless, cropped, gypsy top, with just 2 straps at the back, plus a long full floaty sheer chiffon skirt with white knickers & a gold belt. A OK routine, but Natalie did most of the work, he seemed to slow and cumbersome for a 'Quickstep!!' Again nothing special. He could be in bottom two again!


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (7) Total score 24.

9) Robbie Savage & Ola - Dancing The Tango, to 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme'  From Mamma Mia. Robbie in tight aubergine trousers & matching waistcoat with jewel encrusted lapels & no shirt, showing off the tattoo'd guns!! Ola wore a gorgeous, long, tiered, ruffled, purple, gypsy skirt, with a side split to the waist mid left leg. Plus a cropped, white, long sleeved gypsy top & white hooped earrings. He looked confident, with good posturing & they looked smouldering & moody. 

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 30. 


10) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Fox Trot, to 'Don't Rain On My Parade' From Funny Girl. Russell wore a white top hat & tails, with a white, winged collared, shirt & bow tie, a bright yellow hankie & a prop of a white umbrella & yellow swirl on it! Flavia wore a gorgeous, sexy, sparkly, canary yellow, backless, long dress. Another fun, energy packed performance from Russell, who is light on his feet & the joyous look on his face, as he foxtrotted across the floor, was a pleasure to watch.  He is still my guilty pleasure, he has shown us all that, he can do ballroom, as well as the Latin numbers! Don't be surprised to see him make it to the final 3 or 4!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 30. 



11) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Tango, to 'I Will Survive' From Priscilla Queen Of the Desert, Jason wore a fuchsia shirt, with spangly collar & cuffs, with a darker Hot Pink tie & black trousers. Kristina wore a stunning 'Show Girl' style dress, with a spangled, silver, backless, swimsuit like body, with cut away sides. It had a long, tired, ruffled, Fuchsia, skirt & she had hot pink, ostrich feathers in hair. They both had two big fuchsia Ostrich feather fans & they glided moodily & purposely  across the floor, and Jason had his Tony Blair lookalike expression on again, which seams to happen whenever he looks intense. 

The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (9) Alisha (9) Bruno (9) Total score 36. 

 Jason's Happy Face Above, And Moody Face Below!!

12) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Char-Char-Char, to 'Beggin' From Jersey Boys. Chelsee wore a coral, fringed, leotard, with a silver belt. Her hair was in a better style, again tonight, Pasha was in a white shirt & black trousers, with a thin black tie & red jacket, with black lapels & pocket flaps. Their dance was, lively, but also very messy, seeming a tad unpolished at times, also somewhat undisciplined, but fun in parts. But she may be in danger! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 30.



13) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Jive, to 'Greased Lightnin' From Grease. Harry wore a open leather jacket & black trousers, showing his 6 pack abs!! Witt Woo!! Aliona, who also has a killer body & abdomen, wore a lovely cropped baby pink top, with a black H on the centre front & a sheer black back. Also a matching neck-chief, plus a low slung floaty, swishy, baby pink skirt, longer at back than at front & matching knickers, showing off her amazing body to the max! The two still have a really good connection & chemistry & they jived with confidence & fun, they both looked super sexy!!

  2. Harry Judd
  3. Jason Donovan 
  4. Russell Grant

Show Five, Saturday 22nd October  

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black bow tie & a black suit, with a silver waistcoat, with black spots & Co Host, Tess Daly in a long, mauve, long sleeved, high necked, dress, with a lilac, purple & navy, tribal look print, with a gold collar style necklace & a gold cuff bracelet, on right wrist, with nice gently wavy hair. 1st up, out of tonight's twelve celebrity's & starting off the show's 'Ballroom Basics' theme is Australian actor, Jason Donovan....


1) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Pasodoble, to 'I Want It All' Jason wore a black T-shirt/vest top under a red & gold brocade, matador jacket & black trousers with a black cummerbund round his waist. Kristina gave me 'Serious Dress Envy' (I want, I want, I want!!) When she wore a really stunning 'Versace/Dolce & Gabbana' style leopard print dress. It was floor length, with a plunging back, a swishy skirt with split over left leg. The hem was edged in red ribbon & the top of the dress & plunge back was edged in red lace flowers, with red ribbon shoulder straps, and red ribbon laced lace sides to the dress. She had her hair up & red drop earrings on. They moved moodily & purposely across the floor. But Jason's moody/angry face, was quite an odd, grim looking expression, which made him look really ugly & was somewhat off putting. Kristina was a beautiful swirling cape & Jason threw her around matador like, with passion & flair & looked confident & purposeful, I just wished he'd not have pulled such odd faces! As otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed the dance!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27. 

 Serious Dress Envy!!!

2) Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Rumba, to 'Run' Alex wore a navy, lace, backless, body-stocking, with a gem covered, navy tulle frill, that comes from the base of the low back, over her right shoulder, crossing her body to her left thigh, covering her crotch area. James was in a sleeveless, translucent, navy, shirt & navy trousers. Alex was graceful, elegant, sensual & danced well, they are a good partnership. I loved it, when yet again, the fabulous, big guns, James, got feisty with the judges! Craig in particular, before judging began! Good for him!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 25.


3) Rory Bremner & Erin - Danced The Cha-cha-cha, to 'Dance To The Music'. Rory wore a black shirt, open to the waist, trimmed with gold gems. Erin had a gorgeous, flesh coloured, shift dress, on that was covered in silver beaded fringes, with a silver jeweled belt & a deep coral, floaty, fringed hem. They did a good, fast, smooth fun, dance, it was a good routine & a very confident performance!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (7) Alisha (6) Bruno (7) Total score 24.  


4) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Fox Trot, to 'I Just Don't Know, What To Do, With Myself' Audley was in white tie & Tails. Natalie wore a beautiful, white, jewel encrusted, backless swimsuit like dress. With a gorgeous, full, floor length, feathered pink skirt, from the hip, with a jewel encrusted belt. A good routine, from someone, who is usually quite flat footed & stompy in his dancing.

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 25.


5) Nancy Dell'Olio & Anton - Dancing The Pasodoble to 'The Rodrigo Concerto'  Nancy wore a sexy, black, Spanish style, dress with a split in front of her left leg, with a full floaty skirt with large sheer triangle inserts (Only visible when the skirt was held open like a cape!) An off the shoulder design, with long sleeves, lace up corset like front, with a low scoop back, with lacing at shoulder blades, to stop it slipping off her shoulders. Her hair was in a low bun at the back & it seemed to have bright red, hair extensions, entwined in it, giving the impression of a flower. Anton in a black velvet waistcoat, tuxedo trousers, with a black satin shirt. The routine still involved Nancy being carried, lifted & dragged 98% of the time, the other 2% of the time she, walked rather than danced & you could tell by her facial expressions she was counting in her head! So yet another Latin dance, for the Italian & yet again she emitted NO fiery Latin passion, she is one cold fish, for an Italian!! On the plus point she has great legs & showed them off well in her kicks! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (3) Len (5) Alisha (5) Bruno (5) Total score 18.



6) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Samba, to 'Sir Duke' Lulu is in a short, red, floaty, dress, with a circular skirt & matching knickers, it has a wide, scooped, neckline, that makes it fall off the shoulders, but preventing it fully falling down, is a silver strap on her right shoulder, attached to a small jeweled area to the right of the scooped neckline, with 3/3 batwing sleeves. Brendan is in tight black trousers, a red jewelled, Lycra top, split to the waist at centre front. Fast & energetic. But tonight Lulu didn't do it for me. The bit on the steps, among the audience, seemed pointless, as if to waste time so Lulu spent less time dancing. It didn't have a Latin, Samba, feel either. Lulu went 6th for the 2nd week in a row.

The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (6) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 25.



7) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The Viennese Waltz, to "Cry Me Out" Holly wore a very pretty, long, backless, gown. the bodice of the dress was very swimsuit like, with a jeweled Art Deco like design, on a white background, with a long, full, floaty, hot pink chiffon shirt, with a full floaty gold chiffon underskirts. Her hair was in a Chignon & she wore drop diamante earrings. Artem wore black trousers, a white shirt, black tie & black velvet jacket with shiny lapels. Their routine was graceful, elegant, they romantically glided across the floor, Holly missed Artem's hand in a move, but other than that it looked pretty faultless, and seemed a effortless performance.

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 30 



8) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'Sing, Sing, Sing' Chelsee wore a electric blue 50's style halterneck dress with a circular skirt, with gold edged lapels, at the halterneck. Her hair was pulled back & a faux straight glossy ponytail added with a headpiece to one side to look either like a RAF hat, or a air stewardesses one. Pasha was in a white shirt & black pinstriped suit, with a electric blue tie & hankie in pocket. Their dance was, lively, fast, fun, sure footed, nimble & well danced, a big, big, big improvement, to last weeks performance!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (9) Alisha (9) Bruno (9) Total score 36.



9) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Waltz, to 'Come Away With Me' Harry wore black tails & a white shirt, with a white, long tie. Aliona wore a absolutely stunning, pale peach, Grecian influenced, floaty, floor length, pleated, evening gown. Backless, with thin bejeweled straps, crisscrossing her back, with matching 3 or 4 bands on each arm, which, chiffon, strips, floated from. The two still have a really good connection & chemistry & they moved seamlessly as one, and looked every inch the romantic couple, although they too did a steps thing, like Lulu!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Alisha (10) Bruno (9) Total score 33. Harry gets the 1st 10 of the series!



10) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The American Smooth, to 'I've Got You Under My Skin'  At last, Anita got a dress, that did her good, slender, figure, justice. A long purple bias cut gown, that skimmed the body & kicked out at the full hem, with two gold strips in a figure of 8 at the bust, which with the floaty ivory, chiffon short sleeved bolero over the top gave the impression of the dress being strapless, her hair was down & she wore drop earrings. Robin was in a white shirt, black tuxedo trousers, with a untied bow tie that was scattered with diamante's. They looked elegant, classy & extremely sophisticated, as they glided effortlessly across the floor, I think this was her best dance to date! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Anita (8) Bruno (8) Total score 32.



11) Robbie Savage & Ola - Dancing The Jive, to 'Love ManRobbie was in, black tuxedo trousers & a white, diamante encrusted, sheer, translucent shirt. Ola looked stunning, in a barely there, white & gold, fringed, bikini like dress & drop earrings. He looked confident, with some hip thrusting & shaking of hair, with kicks & flicks of his legs, he looked like he was having fun, the routine was fun as well as fast paced & full of enthusiastic energy!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27. 


12) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Tango, to 'Sweet Dreams' Russell wore a turquoise shirt, with navy trousers & a navy bejeweled waistcoat! Flavia wore a gorgeous, sexy, sparkly lilac, backless, long, halterneck dress, with a full, floaty, sun-ray pleated skirt. Another fun, energy packed performance from Russell, who started off his routine in bed, then was tempted out into a dream with Flavia, which turned into a dramatic tango nightmare, with Flavia taking on the aggressor role. He is still my guilty pleasure, he & Harry are my favourite's! He was light on his feet & nimble as always, with a look on his face, that showed, that he was really thoroughly enjoying himself! His face when at the end Flavia flung him back on the bed, made me laugh out loud & his camp face when he grabbed his teddy, even more so!! Loved it!!

Sadly for Rory, Nancy's twitchy curtain, appeal, ousted Rory... so in an impressionist tribute farewell, its goodnight from him & its goodnight from me!!

Show Six, Saturday 29th October 

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black bow tie & a black suit, with a burgundy waistcoat, tonight. Co Host, Tess Daly in a long, black, sequined, asymmetrical, one shouldered (right shoulder) column dress, with what looked like a black leather yolk from shoulder to pit level, with her hair in a bun & drop earrings. 1st up, out of tonight's eleven celebrity's & starting off the show's Halloween theme, is Camptastic Astrologer, Russell Grant....


1) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Samba, to 'Better The Devil You Know' Russell was the Cheeky, Little, Devil & wore a red shirt, with red trousers, with a red Devils tail, plus a red bejeweled waistcoat, he had devilish makeup & two red horns stuck to his temples! Flavia was the Sexy Little Devil, in a skin tight, black sequined, cat suit, with a keyhole front to beneath her navel, edged in a red sequin design. The low scooped back has a sheer black mesh, also with a Devils tail & a sexy short red & black bob wig! Despite Russell's leg injury (Which he got during last weeks performance) Russell who emerged with Flavia from pink flames (Below) was light on his feet & moved well, even a few mistakes step wise due to his injured knee, were not really noticeable, as the routine was so fun fast & enjoyable. He is one of my top two favourite's with Harry. He was a joy to watch, it's obvious he is having fun & enjoying every minute of his dancing & it's also obvious he & Flavia have a lot of love for each other, even with knee problems & a few mistakes step-wise, I am sure he will still be safe this week (Fingers crossed)


The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (6) Total score 22. The three sixes being quite apt for the Devil!!


Cheeky Devil Russell


2) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Tango, to 'Love Potion Number 9' Chelsee wore a wench like black, mauve & red dress, with mauve torn armlets. The black satin skirt was full, the bodice had black rhinestones at the chest & a big red heart below the bust, who's tip then had a red frill coming from it, that bled into the skirt, the skirt also had a purple frill & the low back was laced up with mauve ribbon. He wore a red shirt, black trousers & a mauve jacket, with a diamante spider, coming out of the breast pocket. They started off, with her coming out of a big cauldron (below) & danced well together! There was a wardrobe malfunction where her boob popped out, but it wasn't noticeable on TV, which may be a shame as, although they danced well it was a bit boring & lack luster, so a bit of boob, may of made it a bit more exciting, she might be in bottom two tomorrow!!  


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (9) Bruno (8) Total score 32. 

Chelsee's 'Love Potion Number 9'

3) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Jive, to 'Little Shop Of Horrors' Audley was in a white orderly ripped (Not Audley) shirt, with a peach collar & peach fabric, behind the rips, with red rhinestones on his shoulders, worn with brown trousers & brown & white spats. Natalie wore a beautiful, apricot, cropped, bra like top, with no back, except for to thin straps across the back & a short, frothy, fruity, apricot, pink & strawberry coloured, full frilled, layered, mini froufrou skirt! With a garland of flowers crossing from her left shoulder to right hip. The best part of the routine was when the lovely Natalie, ended up landing in a seat, shaped like the plant, in 'The Little Shop Of Horrors' Audley was back to his flat footed & stompy dancing, his dancing had no resemblance to a jive only Natalie's did. I think he could be in bottom two & going tomorrow.

The Judges Marks - Craig (3) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (5) Total score 20. 



4)Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Pasodoble, to 'Bring Me To Life' (I Love that song!!) Alex wore a gorgeous, white, long, floaty, Grecian like, gown, with a low back, plunge front, & full floaty skirt from the hips down, the tousled, long, hair extensions, with the tiny white butterfly's in it, suited her too. James was dressed as Dracula, with white winged collar, shirt, black trousers & tailed jacket, plus red lined black cloak. He looked very, very different, in his vampire makeup, fangs & red contact lenses! Black hair doesn't suit him, he looks best as his blonde self. They were very confident, fast paced, intense & passionate, yet it still left me somewhat cold!

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 31.

 James can 'Count' on a low score from Craig

5) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The American Smooth, to "Swan Lake" Holly wore a very saucy, black, mesh, low backed, leotard, with a ultra short, black feathered mini skirt, with one sheer right sleeve, with a sheer glove. With two triangular leather looking pieces at the front like lapels, forming a V at navel level, to hide the breast area, her hair was up in a bun, with dainty black feathers entwined, and black swan, ballet like eye makeup & black tights. Artem, was all in white, trousers, shoes & translucent shirt, with white feathers on the left sleeve above the cuff & more feathers running along the right side of the shirts central fastening, plus a few white feathers at temple looking like a grey streak! (Below) Their dancing was exquisite, elegant, feminine & romantic, they are surely soooo safe this week!!

Holly's 'Swan Lake'


6) Nancy Dell'Olio & Anton - Dancing The Rumba, to 'Spooky'  Nancy wore a sexy, barely there!! (in parts) Asymmetrical, white dress, with silver, sparkly Cobwebs over it! With no right side, except for a few silver straps. The raggedy hem was longer on the left side, but minutely small on the right to show of her good legs. The right thigh having two black bead spiders on it. Her hair was up-swept & held in place by a big diamante clasp at the back & a diamante spider in her hair near the front. Anton wore silver sequined trousers & a white satin shirt, with white face makeup, & white hair gelled up. The floor had dry ice & crosses shadows on it, Nancy emerged from a silver glittery coffin, lined in shocking pink, drinking from a silver glittered champagne flute! (Video below) Anton emerged through the dry ice fog, from his grave. Anton was excellent, but Nancy was as ungainly as ever, with splayed legs, stomping like a cart horse at times, and again Anton lifted her, to make her have less floor time! She could be in danger this week. She has only lasted this long as people love Anton & vote for him!


The Judges Marks - Craig (2) Len (5) Alisha (3) Bruno (4) Total score 14.


Nancy, Kookie & Spookie!!

Spooky Nancy & Anton


7) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Tango, to 'Psycho Killer' Harry wore a black, velvet, jacket & a open, white, winged collar, shirt, with black trousers, red handkerchief & drop diamante broach below it & a white Venetian mask. Aliona wore a absolutely stunning, red, floaty, floor length gown. Backless with numerous thin red straps, crisscrossing her back, the bodice has a jeweled design & there was a black, jet spider, at the base of her spine, at the bottom of the dresses, scooped back. She had a jet black, glittery Venetian mask. The two started off on red & gold thrones (below) They still have a really good connection & convey passion & sexual tension well!!.... If Harry was not dating Izzy from 'Escala' (Who he intends to marry!!) I'm sure Harry & Aliona would of been this years 'Strictly Couple' Their dance was fast paced, exciting, intense, aggressive, moody, confident & very, very passionate!! He may win this years show!

The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (7) Alisha (10) Bruno (9) Total score 34. Harry gets the 2nd 10 of the series! That's two weeks in a row!

Ola looked stunning dressed as a futuristic looking Goth. In a long red lined feather covered black skirt & a cropped black long sleeved top, with the same red & gold buckle trim, on Robbie's jacket, down the centre of her crop top & on each hip of the skirt. She had a 'Something about Mary' like blonde quiff & black & blonde dreadlocks look hair style, with a plait headband across forehead. He looked confident, with lots of hip thrusting, some right in judge Craig's face which was very amusing, he looked like he was having fun, the routine was fun as well as fast paced & full of enthusiastic energy, the footwork looked good too, I think he is improving!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 26. 



9) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The Tango, to 'Devil Woman'  Anita wore a long, red, dress, that looked like a turtle neck, with cut-out shoulders, with a jeweled flame design, from the front. From the back she is bare across the back from shoulder to shoulder. With another cut out back from bra level to base of spine. The full hem was full & frothy at the hem thanks to layers of chiffon, with the full skirt that kicked up from the hip, the long sleeves have a raggedy flame like cuffs that hang, her hair was put up with red mesh swirls, & she had red drop earrings, red lipstick & red feather lashes. She has a fab figure, but this outfit makes her look mutton dressed as lamb again, and ages her, unlike her outfit last week! Robin wore black tuxedo trousers with a red side stripe, a black shirt & bright red braces attached to his trousers. They were dramatic & moved gracefully, but there was something missing for me. It didn't grab my attention & float my boat. She might be in danger!


The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 31. 



10) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Pasodoble, to 'Highway To Hell' Lulu was in a long, red & black, floaty, dress, with a long, full skirt, of black layered chiffon over layers of red chiffon & a long sleeved bodice of red lace over black chiffon, the shape did her good figure, no favours & was aging & frumpy. The black & blonde long hair piece was nice though. Brendan by comparison looked super hot, as a kind of man bat hi-breed, in tight black trousers & a translucent, shirt, with a upturned satin collar & opaque sleeves, with red & black jeweled design from shoulders to pit level, so it looked like he had a sleeved bolero on. He slid into the routine side saddle down the stairs banisters (Below) & danced well, in comparison to Lulu who didn't! Both had black chiffon wings which they controlled by poles they held in their hand. She looked awkward, dazed & seemed to stumble & amble about as if she had forgotten the steps. The only bit of her routine she did well, was flying in from the balcony from the stage steps, on a wire, at the start & flying backwards, back to the balcony at the end. She may have put them in the bottom two this week, he was great, but Lulu was far from it!


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 29. 


I'm Lulu, Come Fly With Me!!

11) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'Bewitched' Jason wore a silver grey shirt & matching tie, under a emerald green, waistcoat with a emerald jewelled front & emerald tuxedo trousers, with green eye makeup either side of his eyes. She wore a emerald, sequined, low backed, leotard, with a large bow at the chest area. With short chiffon, emerald cape sleeves, with a long, floor length, transparent, emerald, sun-ray pleated skirt, she had 30's style short curly hair, with a black, jet, spider clip in it, she also wore large sparkly, glittery, emerald green, crescent moon & star drop earrings. They were fast, confident & light on their feet, but this routine left me cold, compared to others they'd done! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (9) Alisha (10) Bruno (9) Total score 37. Jason's 1st 10 & the 3rd 10 since the series began!

The Show Starts, with Brucie in his usual black bow tie & a black suit, but a pinstriped one today, with a yellow waistcoat, & matching hankie tonight. Co Host, Tess Daly in a short, silver grey, lace dress, with long sleeves, the dress part was lined in grey & had a thin buckled belt at waist. The colour is way too wishy washy, for her complexion & it didn't suit her. Her hair was down with the fringe pinned back in a small quiff & she wore big hoop earrings. Both wore remembrance poppy's. Dirty Dancing actress Jenifer Grey was filling in for Judge Len Goodman. 1st up, out of tonight's 10 celebrity's & starting off the show, is the rather boring Lulu....



1) Lulu & Brendan - Dancing The Tango, to 'Kiss' Lulu started off on the balcony again like last week, no doubt to kill some dancing time for Lulu who hasn't progressed much since the show started!! She was in long, mauve, wide, floaty, chiffon, flared trousers with side splits to the knee, with a translucent, red off the shoulder, long sleeved gypsy like top, with a asymmetrical hem, with a lace detail over the left hip, belted at the waist. Worn over a black camisole with decorative red & black straps, that showed above the red off the shoulder top, worn with gold shoes & her normal hair, made shaggy, that had a red & black hair slide & big red hoop earrings. Brendan wore tight black tuxedo trousers, black shirt, with a black waistcoat. The routine was kind of boring & cheesy. But I don't really think that's Brendan's fault, Lulu really doesn't exude much personality & doesn't really make you want to watch her! She could be in danger, I thought she'd go last week, but like Nancy I think her time is running out!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Jenifer (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27. 



2) Audley Harrison & Natalie - Dancing The Viennese Waltz, to 'I'm With You' Audley was in a white shirt, with a peach collar, a yellow tie, with black trousers & waistcoat. Natalie wore another absolutely beautiful, primrose yellow, long, frilly tired, backless dress, with a diamante covered, thin, silver belt, worn with matching diamante wrist cuffs, with primrose yellow, frilled, strips hanging from it & matching diamante drop earrings. Audley was back to being light on his size 17 feet. He was graceful but not scintillating to watch. I think he could be in bottom two possibly with Lulu if the rest are good.

The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Jenifer (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27. 

3) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Samba, to 'I Wish'  Harry was super sexy, in a black, transparent, sleeveless, shirt open to the waste, with a royal blue & emerald green sequined yoke on the back, worn with tight black trousers. Aliona wore a stunning, emerald green & royal blue, short, sequined dress, with cut out sides & black fringing at the hem. The routine was brilliant, fast, sexy, raunchy, with Harry's, lythe, swivel hips. They will definitely end up in the final 3, and may win the show! Excellent a pleasure to watch unlike the 1st two performers. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Jenifer (9) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 33. 



Harry - I Wish!!

4) Anita Dobson & Robin - Dancing The Charleston, to 'I've Got Rhythm'  Anita wore a backless, black flapper dress, with large gold/silver jeweled flowers as a band at the hips, which matched a headband that went round a short 20's style blonde wig, plus black jet drop earrings & long bead necklaces. She should consider going blonde, it made her look a lot younger! Robin wore black pinstriped trousers with a white shirt, black braces, black trilby & black & white spats. They were fast & dramatic, moved in time & were fun to watch, definitely their best dance to date. 

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Jenifer (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 31. 



5) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Rumba, to 'Killing Me Softly' Jason wore a very pale pink, satin shirt, with diamante's on the shoulders & black trousers. She wore a barely there pale pink dress, like a side-less one shouldered (right shoulder) swimsuit with a few jeweled straps at the side of the swimsuit & some pale pink, chiffon fabric, draped over it Grecian style! Their dance was really romantic & they moved fluidly together. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Jenifer (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 28. 


 Jason Killing Kristina Softly!

6)Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing'  Alex wore a pretty, long, off the shoulder, floaty, electric blue, gown, with floaty, gold, chiffon plus net under skirts & full floaty skirt from the hips down, with her hair up. James was dressed in a grey waistcoat & trousers, with a white shirt & electric blue tie, to match Alex's dress. They were quick graceful & fun despite her heel catching in her skirt's net petticoats from time to time. Which might be what caused them both to fall flat on their back at the end! But they even fell gracefully & even with the mishap's, they were better than Lulu & Audley!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Jenifer (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (8) Total score 31.

With long, pale, pink, armlets, with 2 tone pink, chiffon frills, hanging from them. He looked very confident, the footwork looked good too, with good rise & falls, they looked elegant & told the songs story well, he is improving!! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Jenifer (8) Alisha (8) Bruno (7) Total score 29. 



8) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Pasodoble, to 'Carmen' Russell was the Cheeky, Fatty Arbuckle like matador (Who looked quite like Danger Mouse's, side kick Morocco Mole) Sat astride a bucking bull, contraption, waving royal blue kerchiefs and capes with white boarders, with big, black, polka dots on & he wore, navy trousers, a white shirt, a white cummerbund, with big black polka dots & a navy matador jacket, with applique on the shoulders, and comedy, round, milk bottle, thick lensed, glasses. Flavia was the Spanish senorita, in a gorgeous floor lengthed, full white skirt, with tiers of frills!! with a one shouldered (left shoulder) black top with tiers of frills & a wide, royal blue, cummerbund with big black polka dots on round her waist. The routine was both comedic and well danced by the pair, who are a joy to watch!! Safe again this week!! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (4) Jenifer (7) Alisha (6) Bruno (7) Total score 24. 



The Dance Of the Night

Co Host, Tess Daly in a short, emerald, sequinned, shift dress, with a thin buckled black belt at waist.

Show Nine, Saturday 19th November  

The Show Starts, Tonight with the Strictly cast at Wembley for a special show. The professional's started off the 'Best Of British' show, with their dance routine to a medley of 'Queen' number's, Starting with 'We Will Rock You' then 'Radio Gaga' followed by 'One Vision' when the celebs joined in (Apt for Anita, who's husband is 'Queen' guitarist Brian May!!!) Brucie was in his usual black bow tie & a black suit, with a silky pastel gold waistcoat, & matching hankie tonight. Co Host, Tess Daly was in a long, navy, high necked, sleeveless, satin, shift dress. The dress was shapeless & it didn't do anything for her, I don't know if she was braless, but her chest looked flat & uneven in the dress. Her hair was down with a slight wave, with a centre parting & looked tatty. Tonight 1st up, out of tonight's eight celebrity's & starting off the show was Robbie....


Tess Sack The Stylist & Get A Decent Bra

1) Robbie Savage & Ola - Dancing The Salsa, to 'Let Me Entertain You'  Robbie was dressed in navy trousers & open sheer chiffon shirt with a silver bead/jewelled design on either side of the button fasten area. His hair was loose tonight & the clothes looked purple some times, due to the varied, coloured, Wembley lights. Ola looked simply stunning, dressed in a very gorgeous, sexy, skin tight, navy, lace, backless, body stocking, with a low plunge keyhole front to below her navel, secured at bust by two thin strips. The keyhole front was edged in silver beads/jewels, in a design like Robbie's shirt, which continued at the base of the plunge back. Her hair was down, curly & wild like a lions mane. He looked like he was having the time of his life, and his footwork looked good, they were fast & full of energy & looked great, but it didn't feel like a Salsa for some reason!


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 26.  

Another Robbie Wants To "Entertain You!!" 

2)Alex Jones & James - Dancing The Tango, to 'Relax' Alex wore a pretty dress, with a black lace, backless torso, with black, long, lace, sleeves, with white satin shirt cuffs. The front had a deep, plunging keyhole opening, edged in silver beads/gems with a full satin white skirt, with under petticoats, plus a transparent frill, trim, about 4" above the skirt hem, all the way round, which looked purple under the lights. Her hair was up & she had drop, diamante, earrings in. James was dressed in a deep purple waistcoat & matching tuxedo trousers, with a black shirt & white tie. It was seductive & elegant, but I just didn't feel the fiery passion, or fierceness of the Tango from Alex. I thought the music from 'Relax' would bring it out but it didn't!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (9) Alisha (9) Bruno (9) Total score 35. 



3) Holly Valance & Artem - Dancing The Quickstep, to "Valerie" Holly was dancing with Artem again.

Her hair was down but also with a beehive tonight & she had a big leopard print bow on the side of her beehive. Artem, was in a taupe waistcoat & trousers, with a royal blue open necked shirt. It was a fun, fast, romantic, routine, but not as good as past routines!!

With a full black feather covered skirt, longer at the back & shorter at the front.

Her hair was down with a hot pink flower clip in it trimmed with pink feathers. Robin wore black trousers with a open hot pink shirt. It was a fun routine but Anita seemed lost & dithery at times as if she was not sure what her next move was. She has definitely regressed this week!! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (6) Len (7) Alisha (7) Bruno (7) Total score 27. 



5) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Salsa, to 'I'm Still Standing'  Harry was super sexy, again!! In a open, short sleeved, red, shirt,  worn with tight black trousers.

The routine was excellent, super sexy, passionate, with great lifts by Harry, who oozed, sheer manliness, at one point he pulled off the mini dress, to reveal that the red fringing & sequin's belonged to a bra top & cute hot pants underneath. They will without a doubt, be safe tonight!


The Judges Marks - Craig (8) Len (8) Alisha (9) Bruno (9) Total score 34. 



6) Russell Grant & Flavia - Dancing The Jive, to 'Reach For The Stars' Russell was wearing a silver glitter coated crash helmet, a yellow, satin, shirt, with diamante, blue, stars, on his left shoulder, flowing across his chest to the right & across the back yoke.

His hair was gelled up & hers in a ponytail. The routine started off with Russell being fired out of a human cannonball, cannon which was fun, but cost them some dancing time & may lose them a few points with the public! Russell was light on his feet as usual & great fun, but the dance didn't feel very jive like. I liked it, but the competition is getting tight now & the cannon stunt may lose them some votes, I still think Anita was the worst performance thus far though. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (5) Len (6) Alisha (6) Bruno (7) Total score 24. 


Russell, Reaching For Those Stars 

7) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Samba, to 'Spice Up Your Life' Chelsee wore a cute, clingy mini dress, with a Union Jack Flag design on the front made from two shades of pink ribbon in different widths, with a pale pink, net/feather, frilled bustle at the back & silver halter-neck strap.

Hmmmm more comments & less gags this week!!.... So who won't be laughing tomorrow?? I think the worse 3 are......
  1. Anita Dobson
  2. Alex Jones
  3. Russell Grant 
So now we will have to wait until tomorrow to see if any of those three are in the bottom two? Anita due to the fact she seemed dithery & confused tonight, with Alex only there for her lack of passion in a Tango..... Anita is most in danger as she was in bottom two last week when she danced well, Russell is only there because a lot of dance time was taken up by the cannon prop!! Surely his fan base will save him though! 

The Results Show, Sunday 20th November 

The Show Results: The 1st bunch of celebrity's to be saved were...
  1. Anita Dobson
  2. Robbie Savage
  3. Alex Jones
The 1st in the bottom two & in danger is Russell Grant, oh no, that cannon did cost him after all, the fan base didn't save him! If it was now down to the judges he would be gone, Anita & Alex is safe so who is the other endangered celeb? Safe are .....
  1. Harry Judd
  2. Jason Donovan 
  3. Chelsee Healey
So both Holly Valance & Russell Grant are in the bottom two, it's a shock to see Holly in the bottom two as she has been consistently good, I am afraid Russell will go, as dance time was taken up by the prop yesterday...... I was right it was bye bye to the lovely Russell....

It was a nice dress but not a good good style choice, by the stylists, for her, as it made her look broad & boxy. Her shoulders, hips & waist all looked the same width in it, giving her an oblong shape! Her hair was straight, with no fringe & a left of centre parting & scraped round over her right shoulder. Tonight the seven remaining acts dance one dance & a group swingathon.... 1st up tonight Anita!

It was a fun routine & her steps & kicks were good, but she is now up against stiff competition & I think she & Alex are in danger!

The Judges Marks - Craig (7) Len (8) Alisha (7) Bruno (8) Total score 30.

The routine involved a hat stand & hats, It was fun & quirky, fast, energetic, routine, at one point they changed to black trilby's with a turquoise band & ended up in glittery black top hats, I think she is safe over Anita this week, but maybe only just!

He wore black trousers, a black velvet jacket, with a mauve, shirt, with an electric blue tie. The dance was, moody, sensual with perfect poise & placements of feet, arms & steps & leg movements, but for an actress she failed to show any passion on her face, just moody anger, but excellent dancing.

She wore her fiery red hair up. The routine was excellent, romantic, sexy, elegant, with great lifts by Harry, oozed, confident manliness, if you'd never watched the show before & didn't know who Harry was, you wouldn't be able to tell if Harry was the professional or his partner Aliona!! Brilliant!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 39. Almost all 10's except for po-faced Craig!!



Then it was time for the Swingathon, poor Harry, all the others had, had some time to rest & regain energy for the Swingathon, but Harry had to quickly rush off with Aliona to get changed & go straight into the Swingathon!! The Swingathon was great fun but I was surprised that they put Sexy fox, Holly Valance in an unflattering black jumpsuit!! Despite no chance to rest, after his last dance! Harry won the Swingathon, with some exceptional dancing! Well Done!! 

So that was the end of the 10th show, and how the 7 Celebrity's did, But how did Brucie do Joke wise?

 Cee Lo Green 
Mr Blobby

Next Cee Lo Green (Above Top) sang his new single "Still Love Me Anyway" In a very ill advised, baby pink, satin, tracksuit, which with his huge girth, made him look like Mr Blobby (Above Below) Minus the yellow spots!!

*****************




Show Thirteen, Saturday 17th December
The Final  

The Show Starts, The Show was coming from Blackpool, the centre of Ballroom dancing!! Brucie was in his usual black bow tie & black suit, with a black waistcoat & a pale silver, top pocket, hankie. Co Host, Tess Daly was in a beige, strapless, long dress, tight to just above the knee, covered in silver sequins, then a semi fishtail, beige, chiffon, skirt from just above the knee, to the floor, she wore just a chunky silver bangle on her right arm  & long drop silver tassel earrings, for jewellery. Her hair was centre parted & wavy, but needed her roots doing!! But really nice make-up tonight! 


The male professional dancers came out dressed as gladiators to Bon Jovi's 'Living On A Prayer' then the female dancers came out as sexy slave girls, climaxing with 3 gold Roman chariots coming out with the contestants, the girls as sexy slave girls & Harry & Pasha as sexy Gladiators & Jason in Roman Robes (Moob problems Jason??) First up the three are going to dance their Most Memorable dance of the series & 1st up, is my personal favourite Harry, who chose the Quickstep when he got his three 10 scores from the judges!


1) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'Don't Get Me Wrong'  Harry & Aliona, wore the same as when they danced the Quickstep before. Black tails, with a electric blue shirt & a red tie. Aliona wore a long, red, navy & electric blue dress, with a flowing skirt, the bust area was navy, the torso to waist a bejewelled red & the full skirt a electric blue silk satin, its spaghetti straps crossed at the back dividing into 3 straps each. She wore her fiery red hair up. The routine was still an excellent, romantic, sexy, elegant, routine with great lifts by Harry, who still oozed, confident manliness, he also paid attention to Craig's critique before about a lazy left foot & upped his game, If he is not the winner it will be a crime!

The Judges Marks - Craig (10) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 40. A Perfect score. About time!! It was a crime Jason & Chelsee getting 40 last week & not Harry!! But the judges votes don't count tonight only the public votes!


2) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Tango, to 'I Will Survive' From Priscilla Queen Of the Desert, Jason yet again wore a fuchsia shirt, with spangly collar & cuffs, with a darker Hot Pink tie & black trousers. Kristina wore the stunning 'Show Girl' style dress, with a spangled silver, backless, swimsuit like body, with cut away sides, with a long tired ruffled Fuchsia skirt & hot pink ostrich feathers in her hair. Again they both had two big fuchsia Ostrich feather fans & they glided moodily & purposely across the floor, and Jason had his intense, funny, expression on again, which seams to happen when he needs to be moody. 

 Jason & his Four Fans 

3) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Jive, to 'I'm A Believer' Again Chelsee was dressed as 'Princess Fiona' from 'Shrek' in a very cute, short, green dress, with gold brocade trim, her hair was in a plait, with a small tiara crown on the top of her head. He wore chocolate brown trousers, a emerald green, open necked, lace up satin shirt, with gold brocade trim, but only a hint of green face paint, this time (As it would take too long to take off for the next dance) & without the green, bald, Shrek cap with ears, instead he had the ears on a headband. The dance was, Confident, fun, fast & energetic, she still looked like she was having the time of her life, but this time, they seemed to perform it even better, with even more energy!!

The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 39. 


Next it was the 'Show Dance' which was an anything go's dance of their choice, 1st up Harry again!....  


1) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Jive, to 'Great Balls Of Fire'  Harry wore a red, one sleeved shirt, open to the waist, with it's open edges piped in black, with tight black trousers. Aliona wore a sexy, black, skin tight, rubber/wet-look 3/4 leggings, with a jewelled red, flame, design, from the waist, down over the hips. Teamed with a red cropped top with wide black shoulder straps & a black, flame like design along the bottom, with lots of red & black thin bangles, flat black lace up shoes & her hair in a ponytail. Great use of the floor, loads of energy & great lifts, and a cartwheel from Harry, before finishing off playing the drums, ABSOLUTELY FAB!! 


The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (9) Alisha (10) Bruno (9) Total score 37.


Goodness Gracious Great Balls Of Fire!!

2) Jason Donovan & Kristina - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'I'm A Dancing Fool' Both wore matching black, pinstriped, suits, and had walking canes. He wore his with a pale pink, shirt & hot pink tie, she wore it with what looked like a frilly, hot pink, scarf at the bottom of the lapel, but then he ripped off her trousers, & she whipped off her jacket & what looked like a hot pink scarf was the hem of the long hot pink dress she had underneath, some more energetic dancing later & that was also whipped off, to reveal pale, pink, shorts & bra top, with hot pink, fringing. A very good fun, fast, energetic routine!

The Judges Marks - Craig (10) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 40. A perfect score!

3) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Hustle, to 'One Night Only' Chelsee was dressed in a skimpy, gold/silver sequinned, mini dress, with large sequins at the hem, a bit Beyonce style, with lots of thin gold/silver bangles. Pasha wore a white suit, with black lapels, plus a black vest top, very 'Saturday Night Fever' Fast & fun, but far from her best performance, the lifts seemed to much for her, they were a bit messy & she didn't seem lithe & supple enough for the wriggly disco/hustle bits. It didn't feel very ballroom either! 

The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (9) Alisha (9) Bruno (9) Total score 36.

So there we go, now there is a hour break before the results show (It's today not Sunday like before!) I think it will be Harry & Chelsee in the final, even though her 2nd dance was not so good.


The Results Show, Saturday 17th December 

Brucie had changed from his black waistcoat & pale pink hanky to a creamy yellow waistcoat & matching hanky. And was fluffing the auto cue quite a bit, Tess had changed into a gorgeous V-neck cap sleeved black lace over beige dress, with a silver sparkly band at the waist, I was thinking how lovely it was when the cameras panned out in & I saw the front of the skirt was short, but the back & sides long (It would of looked better, all long or all short!!) The three contestants were all done up in their outfits for their next dance (One they have never danced before, on Strictly) But for one of them the dream was over & they wouldn't be dancing that dance! 



And the next person leaving Strictly is....... Jason, who was in black trousers & a electric blue, satin, open shirt, over a black vest. While Kristina was in a super sexy skimpy blue & silver, spangled outfit! So it's now Harry V Chelsee!! 1st up to do the dance they'd not performed on Strictly yet.....


1) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The American Smooth, to 'I Can't Help Falling In Love With You'  Harry wore black trousers & waistcoat, with a white shirt & pale pink tie. Aliona wore a stunning, long, pale pink, fishtail dress, with a deep, V-necked, keyhole fronted, pink jewel encrusted bodice, going down to the fishtail, which was full & tripped in pink feathers, with diamante drop earrings, and a semi side ponytail with a pink bow clip. They were Amazing, fluid moving, romantic, graceful & foot sure!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 39. Should of been 40!!



2) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Rumba, to 'Because Of You' Chelsee was dressed in, a short, white, asymmetrical dress, with a low back, and fringed skirt hem, and a swathe of fabric draping from her left chest to a white cuff on her right wrist. Her hair was up in a big wide curly bun, with a diamante clip & small diamante drop earrings. Pasha wore a white shirt & black trousers. A good dance, good lifts & leg placements, but again despite being an actress, she failed to display any passion or emotion on her face. 


The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 39.



There was some filler of VT of all the contestants, past & present performances & a chat with past dancers/celebs & then Jessie J was on in a huge shouldered white outfit & very Halloween looking make-up!! Next it was time for them to do their favourite dance of the show 1st up was Harry with the Argentine Tango.......

1) Harry Judd & Aliona - Dancing The Argentine Tango, to 'Asi Se Baila El Tango'  Harry was super sexy, yet again!! In the same black shirt, with a plumb velvet waistcoat, with black leather lapels, worn with a plumb satin tie & tight black trousers, as before. Same as Aliona who wore the really stunning, plumb velvet dress, with V hemline, to one side, with a silver sequin/ diamante trimmed triangular section from side across torso & matching trim along the neckline of the one shouldered (Right shoulder) dress. The routine was even better than when they did it before, even more sensual & passionate (I didn't think they could get any hotter than last time!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (10) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 40. A well deserved perfect score. 



2) Chelsee Healey & Pasha - Dancing The Quickstep, to 'Sing, Sing, Sing' & again Chelsee wore the electric blue, 50's style, halter-neck dress, with a circular skirt, with gold edged lapels, at the halterneck. Her hair was pulled back & a faux straight glossy ponytail added with a headpiece to one side to look either like a RAF hat, or a air stewardesses one. Pasha was in a white shirt & black pinstriped suit, with a electric blue tie & hankie in pocket. Their dance was, lively, fast, fun, sure footed, nimble & well danced, lots of energy & fun much feistier than 1st time round!!


The Judges Marks - Craig (9) Len (10) Alisha (10) Bruno (10) Total score 39.



Next it was time for some filler so a load of public & celebs gave their views on this years show & contestants on a VT, Then the past 11contestants that didn't make it to the final, did a dance routine & were a mix of colours, lilac, purple, mauve, blue, white, black & gold, Russell Grant was very funny!! Then it was time to announce this years Strictly Winner!!......


And The Winner Is:- Harry Judd (Of course!! It would be a crime if he'd come 2nd, he was truly outstanding!!)
