    I preferred Stacey to Ashley but what the hell do I know?

    Faye was also outstanding. The girls are KILLING this.

    Same but then ballroom is always visually less interesting.

    Faye always really attacks the performance aspect of her dance. Agree with Craig that the cube was a hindrance.

    Shirley doesn't like Faye very much. The marks are there but it is just the way she delivers her critiques.

    I didn't care for the dress but the dance was tremendous.

    That'll be Charles in the dance off again.

    Faye was brilliant, I didn't mind the cube and thought she looked sensational

    It’s going to be Charles vs Graeme/Danny I would think.

    Over been a bit disappointed with the Strictly singers this year. There have been some truly ropey versions of songs in the past few weeks, that it’s even affected the dances. Danny’s was definitely a case in point this week.

    Joe is incredibly asexual. Too weedy to sell that Paso.

    Is the blonde from Homes Under The Hammer Joes mother?

    Faye was electric.. again. I love Shirley but in terms of judging I'm 95% of the times on the side of Craig. He's got his favourites like everybody else but his scoring is a hell of a lot more consistent than the other three.

    Tonight’s the first time I’ve watched but surely it will be Kate/Graeme v Ranj.

    They've had a new younger male singer who has been pretty good, but otherwise there have definitely been some very iffy versions. Hayley has been on the show for a long while and is usually good to fair, though she's sounded really off a few times this year.

    Is Hayley the one who was helping out Cheryl in The Fizz while Jay has been on sick leave?

    Not sure, I can't see any mention of it. Backing vocals on the Cher album though apparently.

    Charles should have gone this week. On the plus side, Ranj is switching on my local Christmas lights next week so I'll be there.

    I think Charles has more potential than Ranj does, although neither particularly excite me

    Yay for Kate making it through. Hopefully she’s able to recover from her injury

    I take it the Strictly legends weren't taking calls this week - they have two year spare Chloe doing Choreography Corner?!

    I think that Neil Jones segment on tonight's It Takes Two is the worst Strictly related thing I've ever seen.

    After that, he never ever deserves a celebrity partner.

    So Seann and Katya are ancient history and the tabloids found another SCD SCANDAL to obsess about. Interesting that they felt they had to wheel out Danny John-Jules and Welsh Amy on ITT to acknowledge there had been a row but deny bullying. One of those things that has at least an amount of truth in it that has been exaggerated to some extent. With the fall of X Factor there's just going to be more and more of this stuff and I'm not sure I like it.

    I had Danny as an outside bet for reaching the final but this won't help him. Stacey and Joe feel nailed on and as long as Faye and Ashley can avoid competing against each other in a dance off before the final they'll likely join them.

    Danny does strike me as a bit of an ARSEHOLE.

    I imagine once I'm A Celebrity starts, it will die down a bit.

    There's a whiff of the old-fashioned star CUNTINESS about Danny. Didn't he say a couple of weeks ago that the other contestants were celebrities but he was an ENTERTAINER? :D

    How the man can be STRAIGHT is another thing too. He wears PINK leathers to ride what looks like Barbie's motorbike.

    I just discovered his wife's name is PETULA LANGLAIS. If that doesn't scream PROVINCIAL DRAG QUEEN, I don't know what does.

    @lolly would be thrilled to see his old mate Rylan on tonight’s show.

    Danny's mum looked to be having a gay old time.

    I thought the judges were going to be more positive about that. He'll end up near the bottom of the leaderboard with those scores so we might see if the headlines have any effect.

    That surely has to be the dance of the season?

    I'll be watching on catch up later. Hopefully I can whizz right past his appearance.

    It was excellent. I do find contemporary sticks out on Strictly a bit, more so than the street or theatre routines the other couples have done.

    Fuck off Shirley. She has a weird problem with Faye.

    What is Shirley’s beef with Faye? I thought she was brilliant.

    My flatmate is pissing me off as we’re watching this. She’s commenting as if she’s a professional dancer when she did a bit of Am Dram literally 25 years ago. Apparently Ashley having studied modern dance in her teens and 20s doesn’t give her an advantage in her MODERN DANCE number.

    Even when she scores Faye well Shirley doesn't seem to applaud her after the dance like she often does others, and her comments are always 'beautiful ladee/dancer/flashes of colour, BUT... ' *proceeds to stick the boot in*

    Oh and :manson: at scoring Faye the same as whatever that was from Graeme. Dreadful.

    Well she likes Stacey. I think she must have some other problem with Faye.

    Danny might possibly be a terrible person but I thought his Samba was better than Joe Sugg's effort.

    Charles has that kind of routine down, shame he hasn't managed to nail the Latin and Ballroom that make up most of the show.
