    What a fabulous show tonight. The songs, and staging, and costumes have all been on point. My favourite episode of the series so far.

    Yes it was an awesome show. Many highlights. Is Blackpool soon?

    I would guess week after next.

    Edit: No it is the week after: 17th November.

    Strictly really does pull off Halloween week spectacular every year, doesn't it?

    I think it helps that by this week, the number of couples has reduced to a more manageable level as well.

    My main thought of the evening is how Nicole Scherzinger managed to remain seated during the performance of Poison. Kimberley Wyatt must have been restraining her.

    Faye Tozer was my favourite. Ashley second.

    I think one of Faye or Ashley is going to fall before the final. I don't see them both getting there.

    I hope they do. It will be tight though, as I feel that Stacey, Joe and Danny are strong contenders for the final too.

    A final without Ashley and Faye at this stage would be bloody ridiculous but it wouldn’t surprise me either

    The levels of AWKWARDNESS listening to Seann and Katya's exit speeches. Talk about the elephant in the room. They seemed to go on for about ten minutes, much longer than normal.

    I was (not unpleasantly) surprised to see Graeme in the dance off. I had Ranj pegged for that spot.

    I can’t bear Ranj. There is something about those eyebrows.

    Ranj has worn a bit thin already for me personality wise, and I don't think there's going to be any great improvement to come in his dancing.

    I was pleased that Kate avoided the bottom two this week. A Halloween Rumba for a moderately capable celeb felt a bit of a stitch up.

    I don't like Janette much either, so I won't be sorry to see the back of Ranj. Him or Graeme next for me, please.

    I think Faye may fall before the final as although she is a technically good dancer she is also awfully dull, Steps or not.

    I think Ashley will go before Faye - middle England does not vote or care much for overenthusiastic Americans!

    i find faye more endearing than ashley but we all know the voters do not like confident women who do well early on.

    joe sugg is a much more HONOURABLE way to vote :)

    Why do you think Kevin has improved post divorce?

    I like to think Susan Calman made him less hateful last year.

    Oh I think he's a lot more toned down this year, even to TOLERABLE levels. He's coming across a bit more humble when he talks on VTs, more human even. I think the divorce has made him a bit more vulnerable and he looks KINDA BROKEN which always triggers my gay sympathy for a TRAIN RECK.

    There hasn't been a mention of FUCKING GRISBY yet either which also helps.

    I didn't want to be rude because I actually quite like her in any other context but she was insufferable on Strictly. She was not good at all and was coasting it on charm and comedy, but would take the judges comments really badly and was seriously pissed off when she was in the dance-off. Have a REALITY CHECK Susan.

    Susan Calman started out well but by the time of her departure i was more than ready for her to go.

    I think Kevin does seem more bearable. He's toned it down a bit but then his last two partners have had plenty to say for themselves so he's probably been forced to take a back seat.

    The most irritating professional over the last two years is clearly Aljaz... and to think I’ve wanked over him more than once.

    Aljaz definitely acts up more than he used to, but not the most irritating since AJ is on the show. I find AJ's dancing a bit odd sometimes too, like tonight his Jive didn't look as sharp as the pros usually do.

    I hope George Michael is spinning in his grave at the fact rancid Ranj has just minced his way through Freedom ‘90.

    Danny's public vote is going to be tested tonight. His mistakes were so obvious.

    I wish Tess would STOP with the tiresome jokes. Comedienne she is NOT. :manson:
