Strictly Come Dancing

  • Season 15


Celebrities take to the Strictly dance floor to perform a dazzling display of ballroom and Latin routines.


Episode 13: Week 7


Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present live from the Strictly ballroom as the remaining nine couples compete to lift the highly coveted glitter ball trophy. Each couple takes to the floor in a bid to impress the judges in the studio and the audience at home. While the awesome foursome of Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood critique each pair, Claudia gets reactions from the celebrities and their professional dance partners hot off the dancefloor. Voting lines open at the end of the show, and the Strictly viewers get the chance to cast their votes to save their favourite couple.


They’re now so close to it, the celebs can start fantasising about the “B word”: yes, Blackpool, one of the biggest dates on the Strictly Come Dancing calendar is only a fortnight away. But the scores have been zipping up and down the leader board – Alexandra Burke almost got full marks for her jive one week and then dropped down to seventh place for her samba – so it’s anyone’s guess who’ll make it that far.

And the competition is definitely heating up. Craig Revel-Horwood was right to advise the show’s frontrunners to start looking over their shoulder at some of the middle-scoring celebs. They’re improving in leaps and bounds every week.
