Strictly Come Dancing week 11: What's going on behind the scenes?

Caroline Flack's learning the most difficult dance ever while Mark Wright is determined to stay out of the dreaded dance off... logo

We have ten weeks of fake tan puns, revealing outfits and tearful dance-offs behind us and just three to go until the winner of this year's Strictly Come Dancing is ceremoniously crowned. 


With just six celebrities left in the competition, now is not the time for a footwork flop or a terrible top line. And not only are the famous faces performing a new, tricky routine this Saturday, they'll also fight it out in a swishy-skirted Swing-a-thon for a place in the 2014 semi finals. 

Saturdays's star Frankie Bridge is All Fired Up and Living For the Weekend. And by that we mean for the Strictly live show. 

Mark Wright's schedule filming on the Isle of Fernaaaaaandos has been keeping him away from training... 

But the former TOWIE-star is determined to evade that dreaded dance off. Let the dance see the floor. (Sorry.) 

Caroline Flack, who bagged the series' highest score last week, is struggling with her new dance. Most. Difficult. Thing. Ever. 

And with this analogy, we can see why... 

Jake Wood's less-than-perfect Argentine Tango seems to have knocked his confidence somewhat. Proabably something to do with Craig deeming it a "complete dance disaster." Eek. 

Ever cheery, though, his professional dancing partner Janette is on hand to make sure he's wiggling those hips in every spare second... 

Pixie, bookies' favourite and our mathematically predicted winner, is clearly feeling confident. We're sure she's been practising too, but social media would have us believe she's spent the week enjoying a little down time with I'm a Celeb... #TeamTinchy


Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7:00pm on BBC1
