BBC Strictly Gemma BBC Strictly Gemma Online team

You've been at it again and we #loveit! Throughout the week you've been sending in your questions, comments, pictures and opinions to our official blog, Twitter and Facebook page.


So without further ado, here's what you've been saying this week;


Firstly, Ellie wonders what Craig would make of her dog's dance. What Strictly score would you give?

Dancing dogs


Grovener Grammer sixth form Media Studios class have been auditioning to be the stand in Strictly-pro's. I think you're onto something here people...

6th form

And Oscar aged 10 used his A-MAZ-ING building skills to construct this Strictly scenario;

The Couples

Did you see the video of Robin rocking those heels during training? Lynn Stewart thinks that "Pricilla is calling... Go on now go, walk out the door!"


During our vote last week, we asked you who you thought the best dressed couple of Hollywood week were? It was a very close vote here are the results;

  • Victoria and Brendan - 15.9%
  • Kimberley and Pasha - 12.8%
  • Louis and Flavia - 11.8%
  • Denise and James - 11.7%
  • Dani and Vincent - 10.4%
  • Nicky and Karen - 10.3%
  • Colin and Kristina - 7.6%
  • Fern and Artem - 6.5%
  • Lisa and Robin - 5.9%
  • Jerry and Anton - 3.3%
  • Sid and Ola - 1.7%
  • Richard and Erin - 1.6%
  • Michael and Natalie - 0.3%


Meanwhile, Nicola from Northampton recreated the Louis and Flavia (aka Dirty Dancing) lift from when Strictly did Hollywood

Flavia and Louis lift recreated

Princess Vicky Phipps loved the glasses that Sid was wearing during It Takes Two last Thursday. Who else wants a pair? Or even, who else OWNS a pair??


Mazzie from Hampshire thought that Fern and Artem "did amazingly well with the Mary Poppins Charleston" and Natalie Orchard thought that Len's advice to Richard Arnold... to place a thru penny bit in your bum cheeks... was #TVgold.


Diamood sent a "well done Michael and Natalie." She thought they had "great timing this week" while Hannah_CBreezy thought that Pasha made "one very gorgeous wolf."


The props, makeup and costume department surpassed themselves with this weeks Halloween theme. Lucyboo9282 had her "Strictly fix!!! Awesome Halloween week!!!" while hanstan14 thought that "BBC Strictly is actually amazing #dancing #dresses #makeup"


So what did you make of Strictly Come Dancing and It Takes Two this week? 


Remember there are so many ways to get in touch with us this year and you can keep up with your daily dose of Strictly throughout the week either on the website or with It Takes Two, every weekday, BBC Two, 6.30pm with the FAB-U-LOUS Zoe Ball.


See you next Sunday for more 'what you've been saying...'

    Loved the show but why does the wardrobe dept keep putting Lisa in tops which cut her neck in half? Her own choices of clothes don't do this and are much more flattering.

    The first dance of Lewis and Flavia in the first week was good. From that dance I know they would get better as they get to know each other. They are getting better and better each week. Last week dance was fantastic but this week was fab!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Lewis plays the character very very well, he was excellent. Go Lewis, go all the way.

    I thought all the make and costumes were fantastic. I agree with comment re Lisa.

    However i must say Tess looked good. At last something that fitted and flattered. She even looked good on the results show.

    I am a MASSIVE strictly fan but have a feeling this weeks show began a horrible habit again! - before the couples dance and we have the catch up video I want to see the training, NOT a daft role play thing! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't do this again this year as its a chance to see the TRAINING drama/problems etc not bad acting! please .........

    Thanks for all your comments! What do you think of the dog dancing at the top of the blog? What score would you give those prancing pups?

    I love the show but was a little bit disappointed with some of the music choices. Louis and Flavia are fantastic! The one thing that spoils it for me week, after week, is Bruce Forsyth. His inane rambling and excruciatingly embarrassing jokes spoil a good show. He needs to go!
