Strictly Come Dancing – week eight: live blog

After the fireworks of Wembley, it's back to the BBC dancefloor as the eight remaining celebrities battle it out. Giggle and groan along with our wickedly witty (and just occasionally juvenile) live blog...


Are you getting that Saturday feeling? Oh yes, it’s almost time to pour yourself a glass of something potent (preferably whatever Bruno is on) and settle in for your weekly fix of glitz, glamour and atrocious puns. 


Tonight Dani Harmer will be channelling Beyonce, trying to repeat last Saturday’s astonishing score (although I still believe it was Vincent’s armless tuxedo that won the day). Denise Van Outen will be wincing; my secret sources tell me she’s been practising a dazzling lift that’s left her black and blue. The poster boy of gymnastics, Louis Smith, will be attempting to win over the judges once again after falling out of favour, while housewives’ favourite Michael Vaughan will metamorphose into a Latin lover. Or so he hopes.


…and I’ll be following the action with an eagle-eye and making juvenile jokes at everybody’s expense. As will you, I hope – see you at 6.40pm!
