It’s Thursday-o’clock, lovely Strictly fans and that can only mean one thing… we are but days away from the first voting show. Unlike last week, one pair of dancers will be saying goodbye to the show this Sunday after they have had the chance to dance once more for our judges.

Do you already have your favourites from last week? Want to know how they’ve been getting on in training this week? Then you are in luck… check out our training clip to get an EXCLUSIVE sneak peak of all of our couple’s training sessions.

    Sorry Steamywindows, I voted you down instead of up. I also really like Iveta. Louis and Flavia are also looking good. Thanks for the video.

    Great to see the training:

    Good to see Artem and Fern working so well together,
    Flavia and Louis really do make a charasmatic team such an exciting couple
    Victoria seems so much more relaxed - she just has to believe in herself & improvements will happen
    Johnny working hard for their next dance before the return of Aliona
    Jerry I believe really does want Anton to teach her the foxtrot
    Love watching Danni and Vincent they are working hard and have so improved
    My favourites are Kimberley and Pasha they have amazing chemistry together
    James and Denise rehearsals seem packed with great competition between each other!
    Ola is definitely working Sid so hard and it's definitely beginning to pay off!
    Despite their height difference Colin and Kristina make a fabulously sexy team to watch
    Karen and Nicky are working well especially in the latin
    Michael is finding it tough but Natalie's is a great teacher and already he's improving in hips
    Lisa is now very confident in herself and she and Robin are the ones to beat!

    Some interesting song choices here!! The training footage is looking good as well, I just hope the pro dancers haven't given the celebs too much to remember considering it's the first time they've had to learn and perfect a routine in just 4 days before they get to studio rehearsals??!!!! I guess we'll find out on Saturday night!! Am still liking Lisa and Robin, there's just something special about the two of them when they dance and they have such great chemistry on the dancefloor!! She looks very graceful so I have every confidence that she'll pull off her Waltz on Saturday night!! Denise and James's Jive is VERY fast as well, so I just hope she can nail the choreography by Saturday because if she misses just 1 step it will throw her completely!! It's not so bad if you're doing a slower routine as you can just pause and get back into it, but when it's something very fast (like the Jive) it's harder to get back into it if you miss a step!! Am hopeful she'll be alright though!! Bring on Saturday night!!!! Keep Dancing!!!!
