Tower of destiny
There’s a play-along-at-home game that you can take part in tonight, should you find your attention wandering over the course of 100 minutes of frocks, foxtrots and fancy footwork. You just need to count how many times anyone says “Blackpool”, because next week the show goes to Blackpool, and tradition dictates that the one before it is given over almost entirely to everyone talking about how much they love Blackpool and how much it would mean for them to dance in Blackpool. (See? We’ve said it four times and we’re not even on Strictly.)
So keep your ears peeled and join Tess and Claudia as the remaining eight couples compete for the honour of dancing in the Tower Ballroom at… y’know, the B-word.
