Strictly Week 7



Strictly Week 7 - Another amazing week of dancing for you.

Live from London - courtesy of the BBC.
This weeks 10 couples are dancing a variety of dances for your enjoyment.

First couple to dance were Natalie Cassidy and Vincent Simone dancing the Jive.

It was a good start to the evening.

The judges said it had positive energy but one of her arms was 'astray'. They said the whole package was fabulous.

The couple scored a total of 30 points.


Second couple up were Ali Bastian and Brian Fortuna dancing the Paso Doble.

It was a good attempt, with an injury.

The judges said it was beautiful but needed a little more attack. They said she was a talented dancer and that the choreography was good.

The couple scored a total of 33 points.


Third to dance were Craig Kelly and Flavia Cacace dancing the Waltz.

I thought it was quite well executed.

The judges said it was very laboured, and one said he didn't think Craig could dance. Another said it was better than the previous week but there were a couple of mistakes.

The couple scored a total of 24 points.


Fourth on the dance floor were Chris Hollins and Ola Jordan - dancing the Cha Cha Cha.

A good attempt from Chris.

One judge said lively but but a bit 'skippy'. Another said they would have liked to have seen more content. A little 'chunky' but the timing was good.

The couple scored a total of 29 points.


Fifth couple were Jade Johnson and Ian Waite dancing the Foxtrot.

It was a good performance.

The judges said kicks were good and movement around the floor was good. They said she made the dance look easy, it was an elegant dance.

The couple scored a total of 35 points.


Sixth couple to perform were Zoe Lucker and James Jordan dancing the Samba.

A good performance.

The judges said it was nice to see her 'let go' - lots of continuous movement, but there was no 'bounce' action - however her timing and rhythm were good.

The couple scored a total of 32 points.


Seventh couple were Ricky Groves and Erin Boag dancing the Rumba.

It was entertaining as usual.

The judges said he was out of his comfort zone but not a bad effort. One said he had bad 'hip action' and that this wasn't his dance. One said it was a hard dance to perform.

The couple scored a total of 24 points.


Couple number eight were Laila Rouass and Anton Du Beke dancing the Vienese Waltz.

They looked really good, I thought it went well.

The judges said a classic dance with a modern twist, delightful. Good holds, really great - the judges loved it.

The couple scored a total of 33 points.


Ninth couple on the floor were Phil Tufnell and Katya Virshilas dancing the Tango.

A good attempt.

The judges said he was full of confidence this week, but needed to work on refinement. One said there was too much 'rise and fall'.

The couple scored a total of 30 points.


Last couple were Ricky Whittle and Natalie Lowe dancing the Quickstep.

It was a good performance.

The judges said 'the best dance of series 7'. He was in a league of his own - it was magic - he didn't go wrong.

The couple scored a total of 39 points.


Votes were finally counted and the 2 couples with the lowest scores in the dance-off were - Ali Bastian and Brian Fortuna against Zoe Lucker and James Jordan.
