Strictly Come Dancing

Series 15 - Episode 9



Well, the Reverend Richard Coles’s Strictly Come Dancing journey was all over in a flash (a-aah!), wasn’t it?

Previous comedy stompers such as Ann Widdecombe, Ed Balls and Mark Benton entertained us for several weeks before being shown the door, but despite Claudia Winkleman claiming all his fellow contestants thought his performance was “perfect” and Tess Daly giving him a ten “for the wig”, we voted the Revvo out almost straight away. Is this evidence of viewers taking a more serious approach to the competition, we wonder?

Among those who’ve been doing some seriously good dancing throughout are Aston Merrygold, Debbie McGee and Alexandra Burke (all holding their own at the top of the leaderboard) but there’s still time for one of the ones who are happily waltzing around the middle to surprise us.


After Charlotte Hawkins and her partner Brendan Cole were eliminated last Sunday, 12 couples remain as the annual dancing competition enters its fifth weekend. The pressure to put in a flawless performance remains as high as ever, as the duos once again take to the stage to demonstrate the routines they have been practising throughout the week. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are on hand to oversee proceedings, as judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood share their thoughts on the couples' steps.
