    What a great couple! I really didn't expect them to be so good. Is this going to be our best granny yet?

  • Comment number 2.

    Marvellous pairing. Pam is really showing the youngsters how to enjoy the whole experience without all the angst the younger contestants seem to suffer.

  • Comment number 3.

    All I can say is top girl (at least for right now) and, good recovery on the Salsa!

    I predict their Rumba will be a good, especially as it seems that James, from both his previous routines with Zoe and Cheri Lunghi, does seem to do rather well in terms of choreographing them. His and Cheri's Rumba was one of my favoutites of Strictly.. along with Vincent & Rachel's and Camilla & Gethin's.

    I think Pamela is Matt's closest competition right now.

  • Comment number 4.

    I love Pamela & James together. Brilliant in both ballroom & latin such a dream to watch them dance together. Billy & Ola should be very proud of them. The rumba training looks spectacular - good luck for the live show.

  • Comment number 5.

    this couple will go far pamela is amazing and with james they make a great team.

  • Comment number 6.

    To quote Bruce---"They are my favourites!" Absolutely fantastic, they are a dream team and I really look forward to see what they come up with next.

  • Comment number 7.

    What was the name of the music James and Pamela were dancing to tonight?

  • Comment number 8.

    Way to go PamJam!! James knows exactly how to get the best out of older women, Cherie Lunghi's rumba was beautiful too, great choreography. I'm glad Pamela and Felicity are giving the young girls a run for their money,it's good for them! Anything worth winning is worth working at.

  • Comment number 9.

    What a great couple, it's a joy to see them dance. You have my vote every week.Keep the faith.

  • Comment number 10.

    Pam Jam are absolutely fantastic. What a beautiful rumba. I love them.xx

  • Comment number 11.

    AMAZING! well done, you deserve to be at the top. xx

  • Comment number 12.

    Fab-u-lous!!! That's what this couple is!!!! Go PamJam...woohoo!! xx

  • Comment number 13.

    How fantastic is Pam, she's beautiful, fab. dancer, and a great personality. I admire her so much, I think I want to be her!

  • Comment number 14.

    Billy/James you jammy gits. Pam you are tremendous. I've been a Stictly fan from year blob and you are the biggest surprise of all. Go girl you rock!!!

  • Comment number 15.

    That was so fabulous..... I've watched it twice. What a star pamela- and of course James and rumba just go together like strawberries and cream. delicious!

  • Comment number 16.

    How wonderful is she?

    I've watched it on repeat, several times.

    Like Jimi, bringing all her acting skills to the dance, great to see a voluptuous woman looking great in those costumes and moving like a dream.

    My 2nd favourite, at the moment.

    Rich.

  • Comment number 18.

    I cried too.
    And i'm a big butch man.

  • Comment number 19.

    When I first saw Pamela I thought.....hmmmm wrongly shaped body and a bit long in the tooth compared to the other young things......oh boy was I wrong. This woman is pure magic. I so hope she goes all the way.

  • Comment number 20.

    Pamela is great! I want to see her go far. I am also loving the team PamJam :)

  • Comment number 21.

    You two are a superb team with great chemistry & fun. It's a pleasure to watch you both on the floor & in training. Pamela, you have looked wonderful every week & it's soul warming to see someone connect with the steps & feel the music. Looking forward to seeing you with Claud this week & on Saturday. James, think you've just got better every series - to use Brucie's words (but with a different meaning!) you ARE my favourite. Love & hugs.

  • Comment number 22.

    To Pamfan - they were dancing to the beautiful ballad by Adele called Make You Feel My Love.

  • Comment number 23.

    Have to admit I didn't give PamJam a chance in the beginning, but once I saw Pamela's first dance that all changed. She's such a natural dancer and James brings out the very best in her. It's obvious they get on extremely well which comes through in their dancing.

  • Comment number 24.

    Head & Shoulders above the rest.

  • Comment number 25.

    I absolutely LOVE Pamela Stephenson on SCD! How marvellous it will be when she lifts that trophy. She dances like a woman half her age, trains hard and seriously but has a fantastic sense of humour too. You go girl!

  • Comment number 26.

    I love love love Pamela and James. I have been a fan of Pamela's forever and am stunned by how amazingly she dances. I am a good 20 odd years her junior but would kill to be able to move like that (and would also kill to have James as my dance partner because he is HAWT!!!!!!!!!!). I just wanted to know now that she has thrown herself back into the world of showbiz which she enjoys more showbiz or psychology? Thank you x

  • Comment number 27.

    I was there at the show nr the judges last Saturday, and you guys were one of my favourites by FAR! I also loved Scott and Natalie.. but for different reasons.. Different dance etc... It was such a great night, and as i said on the night to you pamela..YOU WERE FANTASTIC! I meant it! ps; James you were hot!! ;0D xx

  • Comment number 28.

    Pamela
    I felt that I must congratulate you upon your confession to Claudia on ITT about forcing JJ to amend his choreography to make it a bit flasher and then failing to impress the Judges.
    I am so pleased to see the rapport develop between you two and I am sure that with James' guidance you have the ability to reach the final.
    My dream team for that night would be a triple ‘P’ event: Pamela, Patsy and Peter as it would prove that you don't have to be a young Adonis or Aphrodite to make it in Dancing, just basically fit and determined.
    There are many excellent dancers within your age group and the only difference between you and them is practice.
    Good Luck with your pupil James and help to make Ola, Billy and the rest of us proud.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 29.

    i just wanted to bump this blog so that it appears in the 'latest' blogs.

    i can't wait!!! to see your next dance guys.

  • Comment number 30.

    Looking forward to seeing dance again! Last time it was pure bliss!

  • Comment number 31.

    Pamela. Please be proud of your efforts and hold your head up to receive the praise of the judges. We can see how hard you are working, so no need to be coy or humble. You fully deserve their acclaim.

  • Comment number 32.

    Help!! Please can someone give me Pamela's number so I can vote - I must have written it down incorrectly

  • Comment number 33.

    Pamela Stephenson rocks. let's hear it for the older woman!

  • Comment number 34.

    another brilliant dance. pamela - YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxx

  • Comment number 35.

    Brilliant dance Pamela. Stay proud.

    Please be firmer with wardrobe, as during training you are looking very trim & fit but the dresses are not highlighting this.

  • Comment number 36.

    Pam is just amazing. I am so glad we have a "mature" lady who can dance so brilliantly.I really hope she makes it to the final(and wins of course)

  • Comment number 37.

    Pamela you are fantastic and you make me feel proud because like you I am in my early sixties (I don't like telling anyone my age as everyone thinks that I am a lot younger than my actual age!) Your dancing is wonderful and gives me hope that I can dance like you. I loved dancing when I was younger and wanted to be a ballerina but never came to that but anyway I can never forget you playing Janet Street Porter in Not the nine o'clock news! Hilarious!

  • Comment number 38.

    Well done the pair of you, it could not have been easy keeping in character with the Big Yin in the front row. Billy was right to look proud Pamela, as you carried out an excellent routine without any distracting accessories.
    The colours and cut of your dress seemed to suit you, but please don't tell me that the Bet Lynch leopard skin was your choice (so '70's Dahling).
    Pamela please do not harm James too much or doesn’t the Hippocratic Oath apply to Clinical Psychologists? He is doing a great job for you and certainly knows his stuff.
    It would be great to see you out dance Scott as he is doing so well and needs some real competition and I believe that you are the team to give it to him.
    I like your routines because they are concentrating on the dancing and not trying to incorporate any distracting gimmicks.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 39.

    Looking forward to this weekend to see what stunning routine you two will have for our delight.

  • Comment number 40.

    AB FAB PAM AND JAMES. I'M SURE YOU HAVE LOTS OF GREAT CHOREOGRAPHY PLANNED JAMES BUT IT WOULD BE OUT OF THIS WORLD IF YOU AND PAM COULD DO THE PASO DOBLE TO THAT FANTASTIC MUSIC CAPRICCIO ESPAGNOL IN THE MANNER THAT TORVILL AND DEAN EXECUTED IN THE OLYMPICS SOME YEARS AGO.
    CAN'T WAIT FOR THE VIENNESE WALTZ.

    GOOD LUCK FROM SCOUSE LAND.

  • Comment number 41.

    Looking good in training and a brilliant song :-D

  • Comment number 42.

    Pamela your faith in James is well justified, you look excellent together. Good Luck for tomorrow evening.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 43.

    Pamela, you look amazing, you look like you've dropped a couple of dress sizes and as a result have a an even more gorgeous curvy figure then when you started. You are an inspiration and I love watching you dance every week. You were most definately under scored tonight but don't let it deter you, keep dancing ............

  • Comment number 44.

    Costumes last night were brilliant. best short dress you have worn.

    Fingers crossed you will be back next week.

  • Comment number 45.

    Even though you didn't dance your best Jive Pamela, your still in it to win it and definately one of my favourites :)

  • Comment number 46.

    I know Pam and James had a difficult week with the jive, but I'd really like to see them go all the way and win the competition. Pam I think is a great dancer and I'd love to see one of the mature women beat of the challenge of the younger stars.

    James I think has been unlucky over the yrs, being paired of with potential winners Gabby Logan and Cherie Lungie, but in both cases being voted of midway into the competition. Let's hope he does it this time with Pam

  • Comment number 47.

    Keep up the good work Pamela and James. You make a great team. The jive maybe wasn't your best dance but the standard was still superb. Glad to see "Bad boy James" coming back (if only in the nicest way). Pamela you seem to know exactly how to react to James without all the stress and fuss that some have exibited in the past. Good luck for this Saturday. Would like to see you go all the way to the final, and another glitter ball in the Jordan household.

  • Comment number 48.

    Well done Pamela and James, I voted for you on Saturday so glad you got through I had my fingers crossed and I was getting worried. I loved your pro dances James with the other professionals.

  • Comment number 49.

    I love Pamela and James, and thought their jive was superb on Saturday. I was lucky enough to be in the audience and could see how nervous Pamela was before the music started. I was right near the stairs and was very impressed with the way she jived down them. Given the marks that other dancers received, I thought Pam and James were seriously undermarked and I am so glad they have survived such a terrible spot on the leaderboard. Onwards and upwards Pamela, show them what you're made of next week and get back to the top, where you belong!

  • Comment number 50.

    I absolutely love Pamela and James and also thought their Jive was good. I was annoyed at the Judges comments because she is 60 years old and she really goes for it in each of her performances and some of the things she was doing was incredible at her age particularly that back flip (excuse if I have said the wrong term) over James's arm. Totally didn't agree with Craig and Alesha who said the Jive didn't suit her, I thought it did with the bags of energy she seems to have and she especially deserves a big well done jiving down the stairs. I can't wait for their next dance.

  • Comment number 51.

    Pam is still the best for letting the music flow through her and boy can she dance out the notes! It's like watching a music score in action. You either have it or you don't - and you definitely do. Totally impressed with the confident dancing down the steps, love the enthusiasm and clear enjoyment. Now how about getting a string of 10's! They are long overdue.

  • Comment number 52.

    I loved your jive Pamela & James - the judges must be mad for only giving you 27 points - it was worth at least 30 or more!!

    Don't know what you are dancing next week, but whatever it is I am sure you will be back at the top of the leader board with it.

    Good luck and keep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 53.

    seriously under scored on saturday night guys. i must admit i dont like to dance the jive but you made it look great. i can't wait for next saturday!

  • Comment number 54.

    Girl, I hope you're reading these comments because you are ROCKING IT!!!!
    Big shouts of support from across the Pond!!

  • Comment number 55.

    I think Pam and James were undermarked for the jive. Although not being their best dance I don't think they should have been marked less than Patsy and Robin

  • Comment number 56.

    Well you pair of right little Devils,
    I was wary of what the Halloween Theme Show Dance might be like and I was not too disappointed in the end. However your routine got the evening off to a Sulphuric Start.
    I thought that your outfits were appropriately brilliant and you both seemed to enjoy the routine to Suzi Quatro's Rocking music.
    You were the only pair that whilst using the stairs, were not horribly embarrassed by them, well done.
    I usually quote that the only entertainer who looks good on stairs is Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights, because they can be so treacherous, but you both coped beautifully.
    It looked like an excellent Jive despite the cameras rolling more than either of you were and I knew that you each put a lot into it because James was as puffed as Pamela.
    Perhaps James is not doing enough Push Ups in practice?
    You certainly looked as though you enjoyed it and I would like to see how Craig's flicks are nowadays, as he seems to spend most of his time sitting on couches and judging sausages!
    Pamela loved you on The Graham Norton Show and well done for reining in that wicked sense of humour, I thought that you might give both Graham and Lee Mack the Bob Monkhouse treatment for a while there. Lord Sugar obviously has a good memory too, judging by his body language as you moved around him.
    Finally James, as a Dance Teacher do you have many Sexagenarians with curves like Mrs Connolly? For some reason Pamela is looking twenty years younger and much more womanly than the boyish Miss Daly.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!!

  • Comment number 57.

    Pam,last saturday might not have been your best dance but thanx for putting a big smile on my face. i know you won't let this set you back. You have a great partnership. x x

  • Comment number 58.

    I loved Pam and James' jive. Definitely under marked (the curse of going first). Pam looks amazing' doing a jive at any age is tough and Pam is putting the younger ones to shame. Pam and James to win.

  • Comment number 59.

    Pamela is brilliant! She is focused and illustrative. We love her in our household - shows you what an older woman with talent and assets can do!

    On the serious side - she is a qualified and skilled practitioner in psychology. Too much talent in one person!

  • Comment number 60.

    Only want to add to the above comments, repeating them really. The marks on Saturday were way off with your dance, and well done to both of you for keeping your dignity and good spirits.Maybe instead of training, trying and giving your best you and the others should all just arrive on a trapeze, dress up as dusters and answer the judges back all the time. ...But a lot of us(I'm not allowed to say "most") do NOT find those antics in the slightest entertaining and hope that this week you are judged fairly.You are a joy to watch and your energy is infectious.

  • Comment number 61.

    Well Pamela & James Don't be dishearten with last weeks score. I think the judges got it horribly wrong. Looking forward to your next dance. Cannot believe how fit you are Pamela. Give's us mature women hope for the future. Keep it up girl.
    Pamela & James to WIN

  • Comment number 62.

    Pamela and James
    I am sure that this week you will be elegance personified on that dance floor.
    From James I am sure that we will get choreography worthy of Astaire and from Pamela, don't forget that you have to be better than James because you have to do everything he does but backwards in a dress and heels!
    I am sure that you both will have put all that energy to good use.

    Keeeep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 63.

    I think they should rename themselves from Team PamJam to Team Pyjama :-)


    On second thoughts, maybe not!

    Either way, Pamela, you keep James on his dancing toes!

  • Comment number 64.

    Looking at this weeks training footage they are looking well on target for a fabulous FT. :¬D

  • Comment number 65.

    MrsArcanum (64): I agree wholeheartedly. This is one of the few times I get to watch the live show (as opposed to being away and someone texting me that the voting lines are open), and I look forward to a stunning Foxtrot.

  • Comment number 66.

    It is clear to see how hard you are working with all the weight loss Pam. - Looking good. :¬D

  • Comment number 67.

    I too didn't think Pamela and James stood a chance in week one and thought that James would be soon taking up his past It Takes Two presenting role. How wrong can you be - Pamela is the most natural dancer in the whole series and feels the dance from the inside out which Bruno says is the only way to dance. Sadly I do not think they will win although they should. I'm not being unkind but I really hope that Ann and Anton don't win it wouldn't be the right outcome. I think it will be a shock tonight which couple leave show - more tears all round I guess!

  • Comment number 68.

    Well done the pair of you!
    Pamela even dropped her guard a little to crack the Wolf doing the Cha Cha Cha joke.
    Well you will know the results by now and James will debrief you Pamela and hopefully get ready for the next leg of your journey. See how confident I am that you should have made it.
    Once you two have won this year's competition and basked in the glory I am sure that the statistics of the shows audience, voting and blogging will make fantastic analysis.
    For example up to last week Tina & Jared web log had 18 entries on it. They had to leave the show and the resultant blog had over 400 entries ranging from deepest sympathy to death threats to Ann Widdecombe. What is it about people that they charge to aid of an underdog?
    SCD is supposed to have an audience of 9 to 11 million but I would be surprised if there were more than a few hundred thousand who actually vote.
    Indeed some bloggers are proud of the fact that they do not vote yet they get upset that those who do are not voting for whom the non-voters want to remain.
    As usual truth is stranger than fiction and twice as funny.
    Good Luck with the training, if nothing else it will make you look the youngest mother with a bus pass.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!

    Hi Pamela & James
    well done once again, Enjoyed your dance this week. Good luck for next week. keep on dancing

  • Comment number 70.

    Pamela is fantastic. What a role model. Beautiful. Stunning. Intelligent. And what a mover. I would dearly love her and James to win this competition. I'm insanely jealous of James. He gets to dance sexy dances with Pam and then goes home to the best looking woman on the planet!

    Some guys have all the luck!

  • Comment number 71.

    James
    Just a quick note to say how pleased I was to hear Karen compliment your choreography on IT2 this week, well done.
    See less is more Pamela, James knows best.

    I absolutely love Pamela and James. The dacing is so smooth and full of class. The chemistry between the two of you is great. Keep it up. Am rooting for you all the way.

  • Comment number 73.

    Interesting that Craig said Pam and James' latest dance had a "cheesy end". I've often called him that when watching the show (give or take the odd syllable).

  • Comment number 74.

    Darling Darling Pamela and James
    I've loved watching you enjoying the dance, but in the past couple of weeks you seem to have lost a little of the joy....don't forget to have fun.

    Get your ego back in the box James - you are supposed to be partnering Pamela, not using her for your own glory!

  • Comment number 76.

    Interesting that a few posts on here are NOT removed even though they are clearly not in praise of Pamela and/or James or both. I have had various posts removed from the A2 post which held no worse content. Of course that could be that the people supporting A2 are total nutters who cant bear their opinions to be challenged.

    SO ANYWAY----Well done Pamela and James you were great as ever.BOTH of you.

    73 Andreas Stavros... try saying something like that on the A2 post.No favouritism on here then.

    Pamela you are an inspiration to all women,not just those over a certain age. None of us want to be deprived of the right to be glamorous at any age and watching some other people lumpimg about is so depressing.,good luck for next week.

  • Comment number 77.

    tippytappy @76

    Was that a blog or a whinge about Team A²?

    James does not have to worry about Andreas Stavros because everyone knows that 'cheesy' is Greek for 'CHEEKY' or 'SEXY'. If you don't believe me check it out on the old Kojak episodes or Mr. Lembit Opik (another retired MP).
    I can confirm that Team A² are not paranoid, they know that you have got it in for them.

    Pamela & James, sorry about all that but it seemed cheeky (and cheesy) for tippytappy to use your site for unwarranted comments.
    So glad to see that you have officially lost weight Pamela, because you were pretty shapely before you started the JJ Boot Camp. Perhaps it is all those Press Ups which are good for the arms, legs, chest and stomach; at least that is what my Corporal used to assure me.
    The blogs are going mad and the press (even The Guardian and The Telegraph) are making hay on Strictly. I am glad to see that all the Sexagenarians are piling on the Column Inches; you will have to get another scrap book.
    Good Luck with the routine, I am really looking forward to seeing JJ's clever choreography, remembering that less is more. Please feel free to make it as cheesy as all the others (I love Stilton).

    Keeeep Dancing!!!

  • Comment number 78.

    73 Andreas Stavros. Sorry about the misunderstanding then .Reading all you other blogs you have such good English, i didnt realise you were using a Greek expression.
    Yes Chaswick I know who Lembit Opek is.

    Anyway Pamela and James keep up the good work and giving us all the glamour and lovely dancing.

    That is what makes James, James and Pam is clever enough to take it just as intended - as a laugh.

  • Comment number 80.

    pamela and james are the perfect partnership and their foxtrot was amazing :)

  • Comment number 81.

    Pamela and James are the couple who have made this series worth watching for me.

    I have always liked James and was rooting for him when he was the only pro brave enough to speak out against John Sergeant when we lost the lovely Cherie because people voted to watch him dance badly rather than Cherie dance beautifully. We were deprived of seeing Cherie and James do the Tango and Jive. Then James went out before his time again with Zoe, not to mention the most unjust exit EVER in Strictly history - Gabby. The most poignant Strictly moment ever was at the end of that show when Ola embraced her husband, both in tears.

    So come on everyone - let's make sure it doesn't happen to our James again this year.

    Oh, and now everyone is saying about John Sergeant what James was the first to say, even though there was outrage against him at the time, even from Claudia. That John Sergeant made a mockery of Strictly, he was the beginning of the end. Now we have two camps, the division between entertainment and dancing.

    Let the dancers win!

  • Comment number 82.

    Great couple Pam is putting everything into this and deserves to do well!

  • Comment number 83.

    Love the comment from Chris on ITT tonight that Pam stands up to James and is just what he needs. - You go girl.

    Did notice your heel caught in the dress which may have caused your tiny stumble in the FT. You both looked marvellous.

  • Comment number 84.

    73 Andreas Stavros....So just to be sure then, you werent actually implying that you have often called him cheeese**** or ****end then? I thought you might like to reply for yourself.Having had a dialogue on another post regarding irony,it would be just that if this post were to be removed because I misunderstood yours.See not everyone knows that cheesy means cheeky in Greek and nobody,judging from your expert written English would think you were Greek.

    Oh Pamela and James. You seemed a little reticent on ITT tonight but you neednt be, you are still fab and wonderful to watch.

  • Comment number 85.

    Well Pamela another lucky week on Latin American (Cha Cha Cha)I believe.
    With James' LA skills and your good looks you could score your first 10 this week.
    I believe that you are a good strong team both psychogically and physically; so roll those hips to the sensual music and remember that teacher knows best.
    Good Luck James, I know that you want the crystal ball badly but as you know, it's one dance at a time.
    I hope you both do well and avoid the Strictly Statistics Fiddle Factor.
    Keeeep Dancing!!!

    Pamela

    Dear Pamela & James:

    Apologies for the error on the use of 'ology' at blog 85.
    I meant to write psychologically (related to the mental and emotional state of a person) and not psychotically (suffering from a psychosis).

    A case of "less haste, more speed" I am afraid.
    Mental Note: Do not confuse the states of the psyche. I must mind my spelling.

    Enough of the puns for now, keeeep Cuban dancing!

  • Comment number 87.

    tippytappy @84

    OK you got me; it was only my little joke on the word cheesy and the blog ID. Andreas Stavros which would appear to indicate a Grecian origin.
    As everyone is picking on my definitions this week I confess that out of the following from the OED, I prefer No.3, although I do like Stilton so you may decide that I am No.1.
    As Andreas appeared to be referring to Craig he may have meant No.4.

    Cheesy (adjective)
    1. Like cheese in taste, smell, or consistency: e.g. a pungent, cheesy sauce
    2. Informal cheap and of low quality: e.g. cheesy hotel rooms
    3. Hackneyed and obviously sentimental: an album of cheesy pop hits
    4. As of a smile; exaggerated and likely to be insincere: a cheesy grin

    As James is MR. SMILEY this week though, he has probably decided to invoke No.4 to compete with CRH.

    Anyone for Fondue?

    love the dancing - go for it! I am 5 years younger than you and am very unfit and stiff etc. You have inspired me to get off my butt and improve this Thank you! Keep going to the final!
    P.S I put this on Pamela Stevenson's facebook page who lives in Auckland but was born in Zimbawe - think I got the wrong person!

    You was robbed!!Not really fair that you have to keep going first, and you dance was miles better than Gavins.Ditto all the above comments,and please dont fall into the trickery trap, it doesnt actually impress the majority of us who know good and entertaining dancing when we see it. You dont need gimmicks.You'll be taking your glamour to Blackpool I'm sure.

    I think the judges scores were stupid on Saturday. You have great timing and great technique and you deserved more than four eights. I think it was silly as Gavin got a higher score(I have to admit it was his best dance)but he messed up the timing a few times and his technique was nowhere near as good. I think the same with Patsy. Don't get me wrong, Gavin and Patsy are good but you're out of their league.

    I am such a big fan of Pammela and James.

    Like others have commented, why oh why have Pamela and James been first to dance so many times. It is very unfair. There should be a "rota" system for all dancers, so that each couple has to dance first, etc.

    Plus, the judges seem to all have negative comments about Pamela and James last night. Others were given fulsome praise. Or, trying to be charitable to the judges, maybe the see a better dancer in Pamela than some of the others, so are making the comments in an effort for her to improve.

    Loved James last night standing up to Craig. But got the feeling that it had a negative impact on the scores. The judges are not going to like been told off ....... look how Brendan has been treated over the years.

    Also, agree that Gavin was way over marked last night. Now I know that his "routine" was choroegraphed to make it look like a training session, but that was no excuse for the number of mistakes that were made.

    Was glad to hear Len last week comment on all the illegal lifts and that they will be marked accordingly in future.

    Don't like all the "comedy" routines, and the props. This is SCD not DWTS. Please remember that this is SCd, the first and best.

    Goodluck tonight Pamela and James. I voted for you yesterday evening. Hope to see you dance in Blackpool next week.

    Pamela & James
    I must agree with tippytappy, ian ogilvie and MrsArcanum this week, you woz robbed. I loved the Cha Cha Cha part of the dancing (even with the wobbles) and you are an exceptional couple.
    However, although it was classy, I felt that the Show Dance start slowed your pace somewhat. I liked the theme, it worked well with the song, but I wish that you had kept your powder dry and just danced a straight CCC on this occasion.
    The comedy dancing seems to be taking hold and I do not think that I am being a misery when I feel that there is a time and place. As Erin found out when she and Colin used the dancing Dollies, it may be clever but it doesn't work every time.
    I think that you two are unstoppable when you focus on the main dance, Keep It Sweet & Simple and do that VODOO that James does so well.
    As for James correcting CRH, well done JJ but where was MR. SMILEY? If you could have commented wearing your Happy Face that we saw in the week, I am sure that the point would have struck deeper.
    Good Luck at Blackpool, especially as you have got two brilliant routines to perform for your audience. Lucky Us!

    Keeeep Dancing!!!
    PS Are you just unlucky or is there a valid reason why you two keep starting first?

    I think Pamela & James are great. Pamela dances so beautifully and is more like a woman in her 30s than a Gran. It's great to see an older woman looking so fab and showing the youngsters how it should be done!! Pam & James for the final!!!
