Loving the sparkly bucket hats, but that’s really the highlight of this routine for me. It’s great fun, but if you’re going to dance street you need the moves. And if you don’t have the moves, at least dance in time. It’s a no from me.

I’ll be back here at 7. 15 pm tomorrow for the Results Show, so join me then. Thank you as ever for joining in and being amazing, enjoy the rest of your Saturday and never return to a lit firework. Until tomorrow! Hx

So that’s it for the dancing, and the voting is open! Karim and Amy are at the top of the leader board, with Emma and Anton at the bottom – if you want further details, can confirm that everyone else was somewhere in between.

My faves this evening were definitely Kelvin and Oti and Alex and Kevin, we could well be lining up for both Emmas in the dance-off tomorrow, who do you think will go?

Scores: 7,7,8,8 – a total of 30 for Mike and Katya. I mean, sure. Why not.

Shirley loved the energy, but there were a few mistakes. Bruno thought it was cheeky and charming and Mike sold it like a showman, but lots of errors. Craig agrees on the timing, but he loved the musical comedy. Motsi thought it lost energy but it was a lot of fun.

This is a masterclass in Charleston slapstick and characterization, which Mike is very good at. However it’s stompy, lacks swivel, has turned in feet (DRINK), and has quite a few mistakes and timing issues. Who knows if the judges will notice?

And finally this evening it’s MIKE AND KATYA! This week they’re dancing the Charleston to ‘Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines’ by the Ron Goodwin Orchestra. Has Mike really not done a Charleston yet? I feel like every week has been a Charleston.

Scores: 5,6,5,6 – a total of 22 for Emma and Anton. Bit harsh, I think.

Motsi wants Emma to keep pushing, she can see her potential. Shirley thought the timing was completely off – I’m not sure if it was Emma’s fault or Anton’s choreography. Bruno agrees, it lacked perpetual Cuban motion but she gave it a good go. Craig wasn’t keen on the free arm placement, but the leg extension and storytelling were great.

Emma looks glorious with a fringe, it really suits her. Some nice foot placement and leg action in this Rumba, which is a good distraction from Anton’s Bruce Forsyth sexy time face. A really good effort, quite enjoyed that.

Next up it’s EMMA AND ANTON! This week they’re dancing the Rumba to ‘Woman In Love’ by Barbra Streisand. Emma implied last week that this was going to be quite hot, which leaves me quite torn – I love a filthy Rumba, but not necessarily if it involves a snake-hipped Anton.

Scores: 8, 9,9,8 – a total of 34 for Chris and Karen. I’ve entered a parallel universe, and I do not like it.

Craig thought that was sick, and I think he means it in a good way. Motsi thought it was Chris’s best dance, and Shirley thought it was so entertaining, they looked like actual street dancers. Bruno thought they were almost right on time. Am I drunk?

Couple’s Choice alert, it’s CHRIS AND KAREN: This week they’re dancing a Street / Commercial routine to ‘Let’s Get Ready to Rhumble’ by PJ and Duncan. A brief history lesson for those of your who don’t remember 1994 – before Ant & Dec were the biggest thing on TV, there was Byker Grove, baggy jeans, floppy hair and so many lyrics they were frightened to use ’em.

I highly recommendthe video on Youtubewhen you have a minute, it’s the most 1990 s thing you will ever see.

Chris’s mum and dad! DRINK! Chris’s wife and adorable son! DRINK!
