Strictly Come Dancing

Series 15 - Episode 15



Now that most of the celebs with two left feet and no rhythm have been sent home, the poor souls with middling ability are in serious danger. Davood Ghadami and Mollie King have already been forced into the DDO (Dreaded Dance-Off) and they’re both quite good dancers. Sometimes a strong fan base or an ability to convey the joy of dancing counts for more than a well-executed fleckerl or syncopated separation in the eyes of the voting public.

So, barring as yet unknown injuries, nine couples remain on the floor all with their “kiss me quick” hats ready for the show in Blackpool next week.


The pro-celebrity couples face yet another round of high-pressure performances, as the competition enters its eighth weekend. Only nine duos remain, and Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly present as the pairs once more take to the dancefloor to demonstrate whether a week of rigorous training has had any impact on their skills as dancers. This time, though, the pressure is higher than ever, as anyone who drops out of the contest this weekend will miss out on the chance to dance at Blackpool Tower Ballroom next week. As ever, judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell preside over the contest, awarding each star a score that could give them a crucial lead in avoiding elimination following the public vote.
