This week sees the celebrity line-up pack up their bronzer and head north to the birthplace of ballroom, no less. Yes, it’s Blackpool week. And as usual, we’re not spying much dancing on our celebrities’ twitter feeds… 

Sunetra is joking around.

Jake Wood’s professional dancing partner Janette is feeling super perky…

Meanwhile, nature nut Steve is feeling poetic. 

And Judy and Anton are off to watch the tennis. Again. It’s like they’re not taking this competition all that seriously…
