Strictly Come Dancing 2019: week six – as it happened – The Guardian,

Thank you all for joining in – I’m off to purge my fever in a dark room whilst reading all your comments. Don’t forget to put your clocks back, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow at 7. 15 pm for the results! Hx

So that’s IT for the dancing – bar the shouting tomorrow, that’s another Halloween Spooktacular out of the way. It was definitely a show of two halves – the first half was a bit meh, but they managed to raise the dead in the second half. Michelle and Giovanni were my faves by a very long way, but I’d give a bonus point to Alex and Kevin and Kelvin and Oti.

Could be an interesting bottom two tomorrow, Chris and Karen are definitely in trouble, and I suspect they might be sharing the dance-off with Mike and Katya – there’s a good chance Johannes ’cheekbones may save him.


Scores: 7,9,9,9 – a total of 34 for Alex and Kevin. Who needs Neil?


Craig thought Alex did really well – the style suited her but it was a bit floaty in places. Motsi loved the performance levels – it’s double what she’s delivered in previous weeks. Shirley thought it demonstrated extraordinary mental ability, it was absolutely on point. Bruno agrees – Alex delivered under pressure.

I really love this routine – the timing isn’t great but I think that’s Kevin’s lack of rehearsal more than Alex. I’m loving the sass and attitude, some great characterization and bags of style. Enjoyed that.

And finally this week it’s ALEX AND KEVIN! This week they’re dancing their Couple’s Choice – a Street / Commercial routine to ‘Ghostbusters’ by Ray Parker Jr. This kind of dance is very much Neil’s forte, so a real shame that he’s injured and Alex has to dance it with Kevin (who is more of a barefoot contempo-waft kind of guy). Hopefully they can make this work and it won’t end up looking like something strange in our neighborhood.

Scores: 9,9,9,9 – a total of 36 for Kelvin and Oti.

Bruno thought it was BAD, but oh so good – a Tango with a killer bite and hypnotic intention. There was a small mistake, but otherwise one of the most mesmerising Tangos he’s ever seen. Craig would love to see it again without the mistake, but obviously not in the dance-off – it was incredible. Motsi loved Kelvin’s inner strength and control, it was brilliant. Kelvin’s footwork reminded Shirley of a long snake, which is now all I can think about.

So Kelvin and Oti are is a vampires – more graveyard fog, DRINK. There’s a lot of faffing about before anyone starts dancing, but the actual Tango showcases how good Kelvin is at leading the dance and being in total command. Some nice changes in pace and contemporary touches, my fave Tango of the series so far.

It’s time for KELVIN AND OTI! Their Halloween choice is a Tango to ‘Bad Guy’ by Billie Eilish. I LOVE this song, and it has a thumping bass that could make a really fun Tango – I haven’t particularly enjoyed the other two this evening, so very much looking forward to this.

Scores: 9, 10, 10, 10 – a total of 39 for Michelle and Giovanni .

Shirley thought it was phenomenal – it was the perfect number for them, and Shirley’s fave of the evening. Bruno loved the combination of classic, gothic and sassy – the characterization was perfect. Craig spotted a tiny bit of gapping, but it was inspired and he loved it. Motsi thought it was sensational and it had lovely technical details – out of this world. Time for some tens?

WOO, graveyard fog! DRINK! Despite not being to see their feet, I love this – Michelle is 100% fabulous and Giovanni is a weirdly attractive Gomez. Possibly my favorite Foxtrot ever – I LOVED that.
