Strictly Results: Week 5
The fourth couple will be leaving the show tonight as Tess and Claudia have the results.
The first couple saved are (in no particular order) – Pixie and Trent. Also safe are Steve and Ola, Sunetra and Brendan, Caroline and Pasha and Scott and Joanne.
The first to fall into the bottom two is – Thom and Iveta.
Boy George and his Culture Club crew returned to belt out one of their classic tracks. George made an effort to sequin up his hat as the band looked once again outstanding and timeless as a true musical group.
More comedy moments were looked at through the lens with Claudia and the judges.
The rest of the results are back. Through to next week (in no particular order) are – Jake and Janette, Frankie and Kevin, Alison and Aljaz and Judy and Anton.
Joining the dance off are Simon and Kristina, leaving Mark and Karen to sail into next week.
The dance off
Thom and Iveta
It’s My Party – Jessie J
From the start Thom loosens attitude and lets self go in controlled manner well. Fluid and less stiff second time around. More groovy and less concentrating on floor helping dance better than previous attempt. Learning on journey and always developing better. Gave much better performance second time around.
Simon and Kristina
Somebody to Love – Queen
Attempt to work well but wobbly turns. Too rigid, stiff and one dimensional focus, despite effort. Awkward turn around grabs and lacking commanding role as lead. Sadly cannot really progress further. Too big a song for clumsy routine.
The Judges Vote
In the event of a tie, head judge Len Goodman has the casting vote.
Craig – Nasty one cos I like both couples equally. Going to save Thom and Iveta.
Darcey – Also dont think we should choose between both. Couple save is Thom and Iveta.
Bruno – Up to me, both would stay. Most polished of the two were, Simon and Kristina.
Len – Look at footwork and feet. Couple with cleanest footwork, Simon and Kristina.
Thom said of his experience on the dancefloor:-
Experience exceeded all my expectations. Thom also had a glowing endorsement of partner Iveta.
Thom – Want to thank Iveta. Couldn’t have worked harder. Want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Iveta – You’ve changed so much. Joy to watch that big change. Dancing is not the job its my lifestyle, my love. I love seeing that in you.
Looks like the gays saved loser Scott and instead forgot about losing their hunk of the show. You live and learn. As for Len and Bruno, serious doubt is on them as judges that are credible with voting principals to seem less obvious.
Next week is the Halloween special. Some people could be going under. Stakes are out and higher than ever.
