The dances I liked the best but not necessarily technically the best were

Angela S - loved the interpretation of dancing a Paso to Swan Lake :-D. Think Angela upped her game which she really needed to do. :-D

Bobbie - those hips :-0. He always looks so happy :-D

Annabelle - it was good to see her dance with some fire ;-). Johannes as usual the perfect gent <3

Nigel - I thought to dance like a zombie to the Cha Cha Cha was really difficult :-0. I didn't see any mistakes but there obviously were from the look on Nigel's face :-)

Kellie oops I meant Ellie - she for me is the surprise of the competition, each week she comes out and dances better than the last :-D

So who is for the dance off :-0. I think it will be Zara again and Krishnan. I think Zara, as a true non-dancer, has done well to get this far and to her credit has improved each week :-). I like Krishnan a lot, his smile is lovely, but his dance this week just didn't seem to flow :-(. However, I think it will be Zara to go this week :-( :-(

I think there are a lot of strange viruses around this year and some of the celebrities are picking them up.


MotownGal Report 28 Oct 2023 08:06

There seems to be a lot of injuries and illness this year! :-(

Apparently Adam is feeling under the weather and is resting.

The show must go on. :-)


MotownGal Report 24 Oct 2023 08:13

Eddie was the right choice to go, and he was very gracious in defeat.

I am very sad that Amanda has gone, she is lovely, but she must do what is best for her. <3

I think that little Ellie is being undermarked for her dancing, but then again, what do I know. :-S


JustGinnie Report 23 Oct 2023 22:43

Such a shame that Amanda has had to leave I enjoyed watching her dance. hope she feels better soon.

They are all doing so well that I can't decide who I would like to win .
Looking forward to Halloween week just hope the costumes aren't too over the top.



LondonBelle Report 23 Oct 2023 19:41

That is a shame, Linda :-(

She left a cryptic quote of actor Robin Williams on Instagram

People don't fake depression....they fake being okay. Remember that. Be kind

:-( <3

I see it has just been announced that Amanda Abbington has left the competition, a shame as I thought she was doing well


AnninGlos Report 23 Oct 2023 08:56

Yes, the correct choice. A shame really as Eddie was obviously popular with the other contestants. But they will get used to 'losing' people now.
Agree Belle, it gets harder now when they are all good and improving.


LondonBelle Report 23 Oct 2023 07:22

Eddie was the correct choice :-)

This is where it starts to get difficult they are all so good, one bad week and you're out :-0


AnninGlos Report 22 Oct 2023 08:46

Loved Ellie's paso and Angela R's Argentine Tango, I thought she might have got at least one 10.
Also liked Bobby, he seems so happy dancing.
I think Eddie will be in the dance off, not really enough having a lovely smile!

was it me or was Craig in a particularly grumpy mood last night?


MotownGal Report 22 Oct 2023 08:13

At the risk of sounding like a parrot, I agree.

Little Ellie was the dance of the night, as a non dancer she is making the most of her time on the show, and putting on great performances.

Bobbie's dance was almost dreamlike, he was floating around the ballroom.

Well done to Angela R for her Argentine Tango, I still wonder how she manages to do the kicks and splits, I dont know that I could.

Zara does not really seem confident, but she pushed the boat out with those lifts. Good on her.

Adam did his own choice this week and it was streetdance. Sorry to say it was a bit ordinary for me. I am not a fan.

Nigel did his best, but the Foxtrot was not for him especially when he lost himself and kicked Katya. Never mind, always next week.

Sadly, at risk of sounding off again, still no real recognition for Dave Arch and the singers! :-|

I think it will be between Eddie and Angela S. With Eddie to go.


LondonBelle Report 22 Oct 2023 07:31

Another evening of cracking dancing, they have all come on leaps and bounds:-)

I thought Ellie's Paso was for me the dance of the evening, they so looked the part :-)

I liked Bobbie's Viennese Waltz, he looked so happy dancing it and it just flowed :-)

I love an Argentine Tango and Angela R didn't disappoint :-). She gets a 10 from me for dancing in those heels, I don't think I could walk in them let alone dance :-0

For a non dancer I thought Zara was very brave to do those lifts :-0

So who will be in the dance feeling is Eddie and possibly Angela S, with Eddie to go :-( :-(

I think Angela S is very good dancing side by side with her partner like in the Charleston that they did, but not so good in hold :-). Eddie seems to do the same or similar dance each week :-0 So for that reason Eddie to go :-(


MotownGal Report 21 Oct 2023 08:35

News this morning that Amanda will not be performing a ChaCha this week due to medical reasons.

However, she has a 'buy' through to next weekend.


MotownGal Report 16 Oct 2023 12:36

I was watching with my teeth clenched when Jody missed with the lift.

He is a proper athlete and knows how to accept defeat, but it must have been very disappointing for him. :-(

With them all upping their game higher and higher, I fear it may be Eddie or Zara out in the next couple of weeks. :-(


LondonBelle Report 16 Oct 2023 09:13

I felt so sorry for Jody as he fluffed his first lift at the beginning and it threw him for the rest of the dance :-(

He should be proud of his achievements though especially as he had no dance experience and the dance training must have been very challenging on his leg :-( :-)


MotownGal Report 15 Oct 2023 16:02

Well better late than never! I had all my comments written down, and left them elsewhere. :-S

Ellie with her Samba, although the judges were not too keen, I like the fact he is very willing and bubby. She has not had any training as such, and make a good effort every week.

I agree that Adam was very good with the Waltz. If only he would calm down a little.

I think Jody is doing very well, considering his balance issues. The lifts were very good.

Kristnan is strutting his stuff, he also had no previous training. Well done him.

Annabel has a cracking pair of legs, and put them to full advantage. She is putting her heart and soul into every dance.

Laytons dance of course was very good, but I still wonder if his previous experience in shows, and he is a teacher, gives him too much of an advantage.

Dennis is back. Angela R. had very good feedback from the judges, although she seemed to have some trouble with one of her shoes.

I too think Jody will go this week, but do not know who will be in the dance off with him.


LondonBelle Report 15 Oct 2023 09:59

I think the competition is well and truly on now :-D. Some of those that haven't been so good in recent weeks are starting to make up some ground :-0

Welcome back Nigel :-D. Loved his Salsa :-D

Not a fan of Adam's but I'm a sucker for a lovely Waltz, he looked very much the part :-D

I liked Annabelle's Jive, so nimble on her feet :-D. She does look so nervous still and out of her comfort zone :-(

Krishnan did well with his Paso, a dance that often the celebs look so stompy at :-D

Layton's Cha Cha Cha was exceptional but that is only to be expected for someone with his experience :-D

I thought The Judges were starting to get very critical with those dancers that have shone over the last couple of weeks ie Ellie, Amanda, Angela S and Bobbie which I think some found hard to swallow :-0

So who's for the dance off this week :-0. I think Cody, although very good with his lifts, found it very difficult to balance and do the foot work :-( I thought Zara had improved tremendously but fear she might be in the dance off again too :-(
Sadly, I think Cody will go but he should still be proud of his achievements :-)


LondonBelle Report 9 Oct 2023 09:36

I thought they both danced better in the dance off than they did on the night :-D

It had to be Nikita though :-( In saying that she did do very well:-)

This is when it starts to get interesting as there are so many this year who are good at this early stage in the competition :-0


AnninGlos Report 9 Oct 2023 08:44

yes I thought she was disappointed but sort of relieved. She did well to learn to dance having had no dance experience at all, that must have been very difficult and so many of them have had at least a little dance experience.


MotownGal Report 9 Oct 2023 07:54

We were correct, Nikita went out of the running.

She seemed resigned to it, and did not put that much of an effort into the dance off. I thought.

And on we go again!
