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.

    I really like Iveta. Can we keep her?

    Just been studying the training video in depth. Looking very good considering it's only week 2. The standard seems to get better every year. Not sure about Louis and Flavia's song though. A strange choice. I'm sure the sky will fall on my head and I will be damned forever for this but I find Adele's songs horribly depressing so I'm not wild about Pasha's and Kimberley's music either.

    Loving the music by Victoria & Brendan. And a fascinating insight into the couples working so hard. Should be really good. Can't wait for Saturday. :) And how good to see Lisa dancing her heart out and doing so well and being taken seriously by Robin and not going down the "I can't dance so let's make this funny" route. She *can* dance and has surprised me a great deal by how well she can! :) Rooting for Sid and Johnny too!

    Loved ITT last night can only echo what my fellow bloggers have said. I do have a concern with the lovely Colin and Kristina. With a height difference of 12 inches how is he going to have a 'lovely straight back, extended neck, wide arms and his bottom tucked in' and Kristina still be able to reach him ?
