Week five in the Strictly ballroom got off to a quiet start with Bruno Tonioli absent for work reasons but it didn’t take long for the competition to heat up.
Bruno was brought right back to the heart of the action by his colleague, Craig, and some seriously brilliant routines had viewers shuffling on their sofas.

One word. Three syllables.
Mollie and AJ’s very elegant Viennese Waltz
The duo swirled around the floor and their waltz to Cilla Black’s Anyone Who Had A Heart had the audience on their feet.
The viewers were dazzled. The judges were dazzled. We were dazzled.
And Anton’s sleeves stole the whole show.
Joe and Katya’s intense Paso Doble
McFadden helped Katya nab her first ever 9 and 10 from the judges with a passionate Paso Doble.
And Jonnie and Oti’s outstanding Quickstep
Jonnie’s acting lessons really paid off as the pair flew around the floor. Shirley complimented him on the “spring” in his step, which Peacock playfully teased her about. “No pun intended” he laughed, pointing to his blade.
