It’s Blackpool week on Strictly!!
What a spectacular opening to the show
They all lit up the Blackpool Tower Ballroom with that circus themed opening dance.
Here are my thoughts on Strictly in Blackpool
Alexandra and Gorka danced the Quickstep to The Gold Diggers Song (We’re In The Money) from ’42nd Street
Alexandra and Gorka struck gold with this amazing routine. Their floor craft was excellent They looked like two stars form a Hollywood film. A joyous dance to watch. A class act!
Debbie and Giovanni danced the Samba to Spice Girls Medley (Wannabe/ Who Do You Think You Are)
Debbie is not as comfortable in this dance. I feel maybe Debbie is concentrating so much on getting everything perfect, she is not allowing herself to loosen up and feel the dance more. The samba rolls were excellent . Debbie is still a great dancer and it was an enjoyable performance.
Gemma and Aljaz danced the American Smooth to Downtown by Petula Clark
Gemma and Aljaz’s American Smooth was exquisite. Beautiful, graceful and smooth. A gorgeous song choice, routine and Gemma’s topline …gorgeous.
Mollie and AJ danced the Charleston to Wings by Little Mix
Mollie looked sensational in white .They did some difficult lifts. They had good energy from beginning to end.

Here are my thoughts on Strictly Week Eight
Alexandra and Gorka danced the Argentine Tango to Mi Confession by Gotan Project
An outstanding performance. Alexandra and Gorka are the perfect partnership this series of Strictly. The best Argentine Tango I have seen on Strictly from a celebrity. The choreography was amazing.
Debbie and Giovanni danced the Salsa to I Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You by Boys Town Gang
We could not take our eyes off them. Debbie is one fearless lady, the ways she throws herself into the lifts.
Gemma and Aljaz danced the Viennese Waltz to You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me by Brenda Lee
A beautiful couple and a beautiful song and dance despite Gemma slipping out of her shoe mid way through the dance. She handled it like a pro.
Mollie and AJ danced the Paso Doble to Layla by Derek and the Dominoes
This dance has the intensity and drama . You can see Mollie is working hard and putting 100% into the dance.
Ruth and Anton danced the Foxtrot to Mack The Knife by Bobby Darin
This wasn’t a foxtrot like I am familiar with . I expected a slow foxtrot with slows but I did enjoy the opening.
Susan and Kevin danced the Tango to Firework by Katy Perry
Susan looked beautiful in red tonight. Another great routine by Kevin. Susan’s footwork was good. Well done Susan.
Davood and Nadiya danced the Charleston to The Lambeth Walk by The Pasadena Roof Orchestra
Davood has improved so much since his first dance. Loved their cheeky Charleston. Full on uplifting routine that he executed very well. They received two well deserved 10’s. They have to dance in Blackpool.
Joe and Katya danced the Rumba to One by U2 and Mary J. Blige
A tough dance for Joe as a male celebrity. Joe led Katya well throughout the dance. Loved the choreography .
Jonnie and Oti danced the Foxtrot to Someone Like You by Adele
Loved the story of the dance and the song. Jonnie is an inspiration and doing well on his Strictly journey.
