Strictly Come Dancing: Week Three – Fresh scandals and frenemies

Week 3 means one thing; Movie Week! This year may have been one of the best movie weeks that I can remember. There was some real surprises and everybody really stepped up!

With Susannah being the first to leave the competition last weekend, it’s really on for the couples to keep improving and avoid that dreaded dance-off. The standard is really high this year so one off night could be the end for you. I must say, hats off to the costume, hair and make-up departments because every celeb and pro looked incredible!

Strictly Come Dancing: Week One on the floor with some surprising scores

🎵 It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 🎵

No, not Christmas time. It’s Strictly time, of course! It just so happens to also be the countdown to Christmas but Strictly first and everything else later!

And what a phenomenal start it was. I was pleasantly surprised by all the celebrities, they all raised their game and it’s only week 1!

Louis Theroux: Dark States, Heroin Town

Today I learned that America’s opiate abuse problem is, to all intents and purposes, sponsored by the major pharmaceutical companies, who are also substantial donors to presidential campaigns of both colours.

I wish I’d gone with my first instinct and watched Susan Calman on Strictly instead.

Strictly: The Final Three and Farewell Len

How is this series over already? I know everyone’s been saying it but it really has been the best series so far! The talent has been through the roof and there wasn’t one celebrity who couldn’t dance. Even Ed Balls could move and he was supposed to be this year’s ‘joke’ act. Before I discuss the winner, let’s take a look at all of the dances from the night.

Time Commanders: A buttery biscuit place

screen-shot-2016-12-20-at-14-27-47

My other half loves this. Has done since we met, which was around the time of the Punic Wars. Old episodes are freely available on YouTube and you wouldn’t believe the number of times I’ve woken in the middle of the night to the sound of 5000 Carthaginians roaring into battle on the end of my bed.

I always comfort myself with the knowledge it could be worse.

Strictly: Hung, drawn and quartered 

How are we at the quarter finals already? We’ve sorted out the wheat from the chaff and are down to the final 5. We’ve seen countless routines but now we’re seeing the performance shine through and the judges are picking up on the smallest of mistakes!

We were treated to 3 group dances this week too: Anton’s homage to the musicals, a West Side Story tribute and a Chicago-inspired number. I have to say that I am slightly biased because West Side Story is my favourite musical so of course that one was my favourite! Karen and Janette were just perfect as Anita and Maria; I just wish that the dance was longer!

Strictly: Cha. Cha. Chaaaa

I can’t believe there are only six couples left! I don’t want this series to ever end! Week ten is complete and it was a great week.

This week, the contestants had to learn two dances as they not only had their regular routine but the Cha-Cha-Challenge in which all six couples were on the floor at the same time dancing to the same song, like in a regular ballroom competition.

Strictly: Blackpool bangers

Week 9 has ended and I can’t believe we now only have 6 couples left! The standard is so high now then genuinely any couple can go home if they don’t get enough votes!

I loved that there were two group dances this week too and that both were a nod to the musicals: firstly, A Chorus Line-inspired dance with top hats and tails and Sunday’s had a rock and roll Hairspray vibe (which is right up my street).
