It’s a vendetta
Shirley: I want an older man Rockett’s review
GRAEME Swann has admitted he had a blazing row with his Strictly partner – and can see why tensions bubble over.
The mild-mannered cricketer, who performs with Oti Mabuse, 28, said they fought after she changed the moves last minute. Graeme, 39, said: “It was before the jive, I worked tirelessly for a day to get it and then she said she was taking a bit out because I wasn’t any good.
“We had a blazing row and she stormed out and left me feeling stupid and sheepish. I’m terrible in fights, especially with women. I say things, immediately regret them and apologise. So I went straight to the kitchen, made her a green tea and we hugged.”
Speaking about the Danny bullying claims, he said: “If they have got their differences, I hope they have made up.”
LOOKING FOR LOVE Our queen of the dance floor KAREN ROCKETT gives her verdict
Just when I thought Kate looked like a goner, she comes back with a light, bright quickstep in full bridal regalia and got her best score yet. She and Aljaz might just make it to Blackpool. Score: 30 Chill out Danny! Trying far too hard with this samba. He and Amy didn’t make mistakes but it wasn’t very relaxed. Felt more like a dance exam. He really wants it – maybe a bit too much. Score: 27
Barefoot and looking like the professional dancer she is, Ashley’s contemporary dance with Pasha was perfect. I’m not keen on all the angst-ridden facial expressions but it was flawless. Score: 39
Great fun, Graeme! He’s daring, charismatic and very watchable. He gave this salsa his all. I hope he and Oti get to Blackpool. They are entertaining and he never takes himself too seriously. Score: 31
The Gorgeous Moon River by Audrey Hepburn really suited Stacey’s style. She showed pure class with a complex waltz. She’s natural, genuine and looked perfectly ease in Kevin’s arms. Score: 32
A super-fast super-cool jive to Jackie Wilson’s Reet Petite. I loved this dance. Faye easily kept up with Giovanni matching him move for move. I’m with Bruno. It would have been a 10 from me too. Score: 36 Lots of slightly camp shimmying and funny facial expressions made for quite an amusing samba with Dianne. Not his best dance but as bouncy as Tigger. Joe’s in no danger of going home soon. Score: 32
Daring Lauren never holds back from risky moves. Her trust in AJ is total and there is a chemistry between them. Her romantic and brave Viennese waltz should see her reach Blackpool. Score: 34 Cool as a cucumber,
Charles and Karen delivered a hip hop style charleston that won him a standing ovation. Not as cheeky and cheesy as usual but the judges liked it because of it. Score: 35
