Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 7 - David Arrives
AIRED:
Tuesday morning at the Fame Academy and Kevin takes no prisoners during his dancing lessons. He can't believe that the students still don't know their lyrics, and claims that their performance is rubbish. Kevin brings the reality home to the contestants - there's only a few more days to prepare for Friday's live performance. As the dancing and exercises get more strenous, Pippa pulls something in her leg. Afterwards, Lemar's treat for being Grade-A student is announced - he'll be a guest at the night's National Television Awards in London, and will be accompanied by presenters Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty. The others all cheer for him, and some show signs of jealousy! But, there's more action when Headteacher Richard Park announces that a new student will be arriving shortly. David Sneddon, who was runner-up to Sinead in the public vote for the twelfth contestant, will be joining the Academy as Naomi's replacement. He smiles as he is introduced to the others, but he'll have a lot of work to do to catch up to them. Later on, Pippa has her leg checked out by a specialist, but there's no need for any worry. The specialist announces that she probably has a torn muscle, and will have to spend some time away from Kevin's sessions for a couple of days, but will be okay for Friday's live performance. As Lemar gets ready for his big night out, the others get a treat too - alcohol! This prompts the boys to discuss which girl they like the most, openly in front of all of them! Wednesday morning is a hard one for Lemar - he didn't get back until after midnight. When he does try to get up, he slumps across one of the kitchen work surfaces, and goes back to bed. He's late for the morning dance lessons. With Friday getting ever closer, Marli and Ainslie get to work on a saucy dance routine with Kevin. They'll be singing a duet of Come Up and See Me, and their routine causes them lots of giggles. Meanwhile, Sinead is feeling slightly uncomfortable about her figure, as some comments from the others have made her feel bad. She tells Jeremy that she would never want to be really skinny like Katie and Pippa, and likes to look like a real woman, but would like dancing teacher Kevin to help her with a fitness regime anyway. When their lessons are over, the students have some fun - with a game of Truth or Dare resulting in a full-on French kiss between Chris and Marli!moreless
