Denise Van Outen and James Jordan took Wembley by storm to score a magnificent 39 performing the Charleston. “Best dance of the series” said Len. “Best Charleston ever on Strictly” said Craig. Enough said.
“Wonderful Job” said Bruno as Dani Harmer and Vincent Simone delivered a fantastic Quickstep to score 36, with a 9 from each judge. She looks destined for a top 4 finish in the competition; but can she go all the way?
Michael Vaughan came back with a bang as he danced a poised American Smooth which earned him a score of 35 and gave him third place on the judges’ leaderboard.
Kimberley Walsh put last week’s dance-off shock as she performed a great Samba to score 34 with Pasha Kovalev.
Lisa Riley showed just how great she is as a live performer as her Samba with Robin Windsor earned her a score of 32 from the judges.
Louis Smith and Flavia Cacace covered the floor brilliantly in their American Smooth, although the judges were not so keen and scored them at 30.
Richard Arnold worked hard in his Salsa but ended up in the bottom two after swapping Erin Boag for three guys in swimming trunks and getting a 24 for his trouble.
Victoria Pendleton flew the flag and her bicycle with a spectacular entrance to Wembley. However the rest of her Paso Doble failed to set the judges on fire as they scored her at 24, equal bottom with Richard. She will need public support to keep out of the dance off.
