This was the week that

  • Sophie & Brendan’s Hollywood foxtrot had “an immaculate sense of style” according to Bruno and “fabulous clean pivots” from Craig
  • Fiona & Anton’s Rhumba “lacked any sort of connection” according to Craig
  • Mark & Iveta rapped their Cha Cha to a standing ovation from the audience and disagreement from the judges with Craig saying “I can’t believe the audience. It was all very flat-footed” and Darcey saying “I disagree. Mark; it was brilliant.” Bruno thought it was “unique and memorable. And very, very funny.”
  • Ashley & Ola’s Viennese Waltz was ” a little bit too safe and placed” from Darcey and “a little but wafty” from Len
  • Julien & Janette’s Salsa was ” a little bit wild and wacky” according to Len and Bruno thought that Julien was “definitely high on spice”
  • Rachel & Pasha’s quickstep saw them adopt the persona of bank robbers and Bruno said “you just about got away with it.”
  • Ben & Kristina’s Salsa earned them their highest score to date – 31
  • Deborah & Robin’s jive was “a little bit soft” for Darcey
  • The high standard of Natalie & Artem’s quickstep surprised everyone, given that they’d lost two days of training due to a back injury for Natalie. Bruno said, “I can’t believe your delivered a dance of this standard in such a short time” and Darcey, with a thought to Natalie and her back injury countered, “don’t be too ambitious. Look after yourself.”
  • Patrick & Anya’s Cha Cha was ” your best dance to date” according to Bruno and “absolutely brilliant” according to Craig
  • Abbey & Aljaz Tango’d with intent and “great use of the floor. Amazing” from Craig. Darcey thought it “wonderful.”
  • Dave & Karen’s Waltz earned them praise & advice from Darcey, “you started really well. Soften those knees and travel. Go and try a ballet class.”
  • Suzanna & Kevin wrapped the show with a samba that was “saucy” according to Bruno and “muddy” according to Craig
