Smooth, tender R’n’B love song from the foursome whilst maintaining a dapper sense of style and originality in attire, also showed their maturity in their performance.
Fabulous dickie bow and chevron tissue thingy. Darhling.
Fabulous piece of equipment versatile, able to do dust work Bruno claims, but no Fern return to sweep the floors.

Couple dancing again in bottom two are – Nicky and Karen.
Bridge Over Troubled Water
The smiley eyed former mechanic with worldwide success gave a powerful rendition of a classic track adding tone and charisma to the vocals whilst joined by dancers Artem and Aliona. Ending on a powerful and supreme note with pure essence.
Dance Fusion, new to show one piece of music two dance styles.
Mixing two dances into one. Its different, but also very risky to removing fan base. The group elimination dance was fun, lets bring that back too. It may need something new, but this seems rather pointless. We hope were wrong, but… we shall have to see.
The dance off
Michael and Natalie
Mechanical arms and good twirls with minor hip action trying. Good legs side to side. Limp in energy slowing down. Arm extensions fair but flimsy on end. Rather loose in part and devoid of enthusement. Good effort, beaming smile and feel of having a go yourself.
Nicky and Karen
Creeping up on Karen, side to side quick feet remain good. All a little slow and uninteresting. More attack of a paso doble than Tango. Good spin around lifts carried by Nicky. No qualities of Bond, every bit boring. Slight improvement but still off in parts.
The Judges Vote
Craig – absolutely sensational second time round. Nicky and Karen.
Darecy – both upped game tonight, but save Nicky and Karen.
Bruno – really have to go with couple with License to thrill, Nicky and Karen.
Len – It was unanimous, Len agrees.
Michael Vaughan – “thoroughly deserved” he said of friendly rival Nicky going through. “Had a ball, (Nat) this is the real winner” he complimented his dance pro Lowe. Natalie responded – “So incredible” of cricketer Vaughny.
Taking their last dance Michael and Natalie will be missed in the completion, adding fun, beaming smiles and blokey joy to all looking.
Now the competition is getting very serious. All are ‘strong’ candidates, which will see a few weeded out soon enough. Dance Fusion’s begin next week.
