SCD Week 6 Results
The ever glam Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present the results to reveal which dance couples will leave the show this week.
Revealed in “no particular order” the first couple safe is Patrick and Anya. Joining them to next week is Sophie and Brendan, Fiona and Anton, Ben and Kristina.
The first couple to fall into the dreaded dance off is Abbey and Aljaz.
The dark and stylish Camden crew were called upon to give a spooky indie themed performance. As usual, it was a classic show from Suggs and the band to add to the professional dancers’ wacky Beetlejuice monochrome dwindling tunnel.
It’s time once more to peer down the all-seeing lens of Len, capturing all the unseen, juicy extras. Craig made it up the stairs this week with a sparkly crutch. Instantly shown was Ben Cohen’s naked chest body with the crowd screaming like a slut fest orgy.
Len commented on the lift abuses in Sophie and Brendan’s routine. Womaniser Brendan was shown trying to pounce on Darcey with his claw as she recoiled in horror telling him he had no chance. Darcey and Bruno were shown with their congratulations of awarding the first ten to Natalie and Artem. (As did False Fabs.) Craig added she “wobbled” a bit which knocked her getting a ten. We agree with Craig, certain critique must be adhered to, but in this case her effortless rendition was deserving compared to the rest of the failing pack. Rachel was under the microscope with Craig who felt she earned her seven.
The results are back now as we find out who else has made it through to next week. Going through is Susanna and Kevin, Mark and Iveta, Natalie and Artem and Ashley and Ola.
The final couple facing the dance off is Rachel and Pasha leaving Dave and Karen to stride through to the lucky week number seven.
The dance off
Abbey and Aljaz
Stay – Shakespeare’s Sister
It was clearly another near fautless performance from Abbey. The majority of the steps were touched and in a structured level as the previous evening.
Rachel and Pasha
I Put a Spell on You by Screamin’ – Jay Hawkins
Rachel gave a similar and good performance, with improvement from the evening, but cannot rely on this to carry her through on the final crucial vote off.
Craig – I would like to save Abbey and Aljaz.
Darcey – Both couples performed even better tonight. Couple I have to save is Abbey and Aljaz.
Bruno – Very difficult. I would like for Abbey and Aljaz to stay.
Len – Agreed. I would have saved Abbey and Aljaz.
Talking of her time Rachel said “I haven’t cried until now. Really enjoyed tonight. Abbey’s just gorgeous. No shame in going out to her.” She also thanks Strictly for her experience. Pasha said “it was amazing to work with you. It’s been an absolute pleasure Riley responded to dance pro Pasha. Riley clocks off from the competition with praise from her fellow Strictly ‘family’ friends.
On reflection we gave Abbey a 7 and Rachel a 6 which means that the pair of them were fairly equal performances on the night. But none of them were overly fascination or capturing audience imagination which has cost them votes in light of elderly grannies voting for Fiona, Gays and Women shameless voting for Ben, the comedy act Dave garnering fun votes ‘for a laugh’ and Sophie gaining the housewives sympathy votes of their ‘fantasy daughter.’ These are the problems that cost Strictly its reputation in terms of audience because it paves the way for such stupidity, most recent with Dave and Cohen. It’s time for the audience to start voting carefully on the dances and the competition instead of an ‘XFactor’ favouritism that Strictly is meant to avoid for fans.
Into Week 6 and our Bingo card is shaping up nicely. Come on Strictly, we need them all! Get a move on. Ben will be gone soon, so give us the shirt.
