    The judges giving Ashley a slightly cooler response than usual. I don't think she will be top of the leaderboard this week.

    Faye is looking VERY thin.

    Ashley's samba was BY FAR the best one this year, not sure what the judges are on. At least she was doing the steps and not choreographed arm-waving to Stayin Alive which is the NORM in this show...

    I was what they were saying in that she didn't seem to quite capture the movement of a Samba but giving it an 8 when 10s were flying about for Joe's basketball nonsense seems right off.

    The couple's choice dances have been entertaining for the most part, but I'm not sure about them coming back next year. Maybe one dedicated week would be better...

    Stacey has to be the dance of the night.

    The SHAMBLES. :D

    A rather predictable ranking though, at least Faye is clear at the top out of it.

    As much as I love the programme I feel we could just CULL Graeme, Lauren and Charles in one go and move to the final.

    I suppose Charles vs Graeme in the dance off is likely based on past form.

    Nah, Lauren clearly the one mostly out of her depth now.

    I think Charles is a great dancer personally. I would like to see him get to the final.

    Charles can do choreography and sells that shit very well (he's an actor) but he can't dance ballroom for shit.

    I don't feel much watching her dance. I'm surprised her vote has held up so well thus far, she's been right down there in the judges scoring often enough. Who knows maybe there is such a thing as an AJ FAN?

    Just catching up on this now

    Have those pesky Russians been interfering with the judges scoreboard? :side-eye:

    Ashley bottom 2. Strictly is quite notorious for the best dropping off at this point, no?

    Obviously she won’t go over Graeme.

    I know this kind of drop from the top is not an unusual occurrence but I didn't see it coming this week. Lauren was really not good and Charles has dance off form and had a weak performance.

    Is it voter complacency or the fact she danced for a living for over five years?

    I wouldn't necessarily say the best. But for a 'shock' certainly. Although it probably isn't a shock at all, given the leader board last night, and her nationality.

    Did she not end up second on the leaderboard?

    She was joint-second I believe.

    Sorry, she was third - I thought she was fourth, which at this stage is dodgy.

    Either way, this has just convinced me that it's now a two way race between Stacey and Joe.

    I suppose the constant chitter chatter about her already being professional could be seen as nothing but a hindrance.

    After the lindyhop debacle she was joint with Stacey on points in second. Don't think there were any other ties so it wasn't a particularly risky leaderboard for her. Faye has been in a similar position enough times.

    Oti can have a competent dancer again next year, thank you very much.

    So Lauren escaping the dance off again must mean she has a very strong public vote.

    Ashley being in the dance off is ridiculous but I think we were all expecting it

    I hope Faye manages to escape the same fate next week :(

    Faye and Ashley are always going to be compared because of their perceived advantage and similar level of ability. But I do feel Ashley was always going to struggle against the nice British girl when it comes to votes. And of course as the number of competitors goes down, the leader board becomes more risky.

    I'm sure Faye is going to struggle against Stacey in the personality department though. God forbid she does against Lauren, although I'd rather entertain people actively voting for Lauren rather than her pro.

    I do fear that they'll go all out to protect Ashley with another 40 and she will get a vote bounce back anyway which may dent Faye's as they are more likely to share voters than the others.

    Lauren's vote is obviously strong but she surely isn't bringing in more than Stacey or Joe, so I think it will be difficult for her to make the final.
