  • Oh my God - this was great!

    This was a brilliant show, filled with suspense. I thought that all the ballroom dances were excellent – and I was so proud of Darren receiving a ten from Len, although I thought it was mean of Craig to only give him an eight – it was the best dance he had ever performed. I was also annoyed with Arlene who was still complaining about his hands, which had improved, and she never mentioned his posture or his footwork which was brilliant. I agree with Len, the other judges were just being picky. As usual, Zoë’s tango was dramatic, but I thought she lacked excellent footwork, and her posture went sometimes. Is Colin capable of smiling any wider? All I could see throughout his routines were his huge teeth.

    The Latin dances were still of a high standard but not as good but Darren’s Paso Doble was my favourite dance of the show, he really danced with his heart. It was excellent. I then had to wait for almost two hours before they announced who won the competition.
