With just one day to go until our ten couples compete for a place in the Blackpool Ballroom, our celebrities have found themselves somewhat distracted. A shiny visitor came to Elstree Studios today, shiny enough in fact to rival the Strictly glitter ball itself.

After qualifying for the first round proper of the F.A Cup, the Borehamwood F.C players came to show us the trophy that they soon hope to have. Like magpies to silver, our pairs flocked to get a glimpse of the legendary cup.

Take a look as we go behind the scenes to find out who was the better footballer, Patrick or his ex-England footballer cousin Ian Wright, we test Abbey’s ball skills and find out which famous footballer gave Kevin his shirt.

    Does natalie think its fair that she should have a week off and not then have to do the dance she admitted she was struggling with. Didn't arten do the same sort of sob story the year he won but low and behold they are fit to dance in the end.

    This has maybe been said elsewhere but I have to say it too - what a relief to have a Strictly without Bruce Forsythe and his cringy sense of humour! Please please put him out to grass BBC - I know he's a grand old man of entertianment but someone has to make the decision to let him go (and not just because he called Darey "Dave"). And then BBC why don't you do something really radical and NOT replace him with a male presenter - Tess and Claudia are brilliant together, really excelent! Get them to present the show and if you need a third person then you can get a bloke in for that. But seriously, Brucey? No more, give him a big party and let him go

    Well Milly. I know I've been down on Dave BUT...fair do's !! I thought the two weakest dancers WERE in the dance off, but this week (on BOTH shows) I thought that Iveta left poor old Mark up the creek without a paddle. She gave him no chance to show his undoubted talents . It was the Iveta gymnastics display with Mark a virtual spectator. So in the dance of , for me at least ,given the two routines on the TWO nights I would have had to have voted Dave through. And I never thought I would type those words out Milly !!

    Does anyone really believe that viewers votes actually count. I very much doubt it.
    I still haven't managed to get a vote on line.

    Can we all just take a moment to focus on the most important issue here. On this video, Ben Cohen says, quite clearly, that he will run naked around the studio if he gets four tens. I, for one, think that that deserves some serious consideration and will be considering it at length. I will also be considering the possibility of switching the judges' panels around to make that day come a little sooner.

    I agree with John Barrowman on Ben's prospects - he has been consistently improving, week on week, in a pattern that will see him peak at exactly the right time. (His score this evening is pretty much just down to a dance that didn't suit him, Craig courting controversy for its own sake and the early-in-the-order stinginess that is all too common from the judges). He's gotten a lot of latin out of the way early, leaving a lot of ballroom to come, in which he will do very well. Expect to see him in the final - at which point anything can happen.

    I would like a little longer time in which to place my vote. It took a while to find the correct web site - only to find voting was closed - yk

    Please, please, please, I know Dave is a lovely fella, but he's just not a dancer. It's time for him to go.

    Re 23 .You are so right and me more than anyone should remember that. My younger brother had Motor Neurone disease for 5 years after losing his wife to cancer. Now THAT is a problem......dancing ? Not really too important in the grand scheme of things...Sorry to ramble on !

    Not sure why anyone would give a negative rating to a comment saying it's good to hear other views. Says it all really
