HIGH-ENERGY Danny and Amy show off the winning moves that have made him boost his fuel intake TOY BOY Seann and Katya’s dance CHILLED Kate and pro Aljaz TOO GHOUL Faye and Giovanni
Ice queen Kate’s rumba with Aljaz didn’t quite melt the judges’ hearts. This dance separates the best from the rest and sadly Kate’s is in “the rest”. Danny is this year’s surprise success and his American smooth with Amy was no exception. He is scarily good week in, week out. A real ballroom blitz! Another great turn by Ashley with a cheeky Charleston. Outstanding choreography by Pasha and the highest score so far – but where do they go from here? ‘Toymaker’ Seann was playing with ‘doll’ Katya. Not for the first time, eh? Loved the concept and chemistry but it’s all about timing and Seann’s was a bit off. Charles’ jive brushed away the cobwebs. Let’s Do the Time Warp Again – but not in the dance-off. It will be a horror show if he and Karen don’t make it to Blackpool. Faye’s love of performing shone through in her theatre and jazz couple’s choice with Giovanni. Great to see a new dance style too. Jazz hands!
Wow! The clock hands at the start were fantastic and I loved the Doctor Who theme. Stacey and Kevin’s terrifyingly terrific tango was sharp and slick. At last Ranj’s insane grin has come into its own! His Monster Mash jive with Janette would have worked on kids’ TV but didn’t cut the mustard on Strictly.
Joe might have had fake blood on him but you can’t fake chemistry! A frightfully fab foxtrot by him and Dianne. Darcy predicts he will, er, go all the way. Lauren’s paso doble as a wicked queen was a fine finale to the Halloween show. I love her trust in AJ as he literally throws her around the dance floor.
Our queen of the dance floor KAREN ROCKETT A zombie thriller from Graeme and Oti. It had a spooktacular moonwalk but the rest of the cha-cha-cha wasn’t his best. Hope this won’t bury him.
