Strictly Come Dancing 2016 week 5 song and dance list revealed

Will jive dancer extraordinaire Ore Oduba be able to turn his talents to the Waltz?


Having kicked and flicked his way to success with the jive last week and scored an impressive 39, Ore Oduba will be hoping to impress the judges with a very different dance: the Waltz. It’s sure to be romantic as he and Jo twirl around the dance floor to the tune of I Will Always Love You.


Following in his wake, Judge Rinder and Laura Whitmore will each be taking on the jive – while Ed Balls is sure to be a comic hit with his version of the American Smooth to (Is This The Way To) Amarillo. Hopefully he won’t be hugging his pillow or weeping like a willow when Craig is through with him.
