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.

And as if that wasn’t enough, we can also tell you what dance each pair will be doing and what they shall be dancing to, just scroll down – FYI, if you feel like thanking us, we like flowers.

    Although Iveta's visit to Strictly has been very short and sweet - like many others I have been very impressed with her - Do your think it would be possible to book her to appear on Strictly 2013 - I'm certain she would be extremely welcomed back on to the show again. STRICTLY BEN could you pass this comment on to the producers of strictly please - thank you!

    Hi all,

    Off to work shortly but had to come in read online in The Sun apprantley there is trouble over at the Du Beke Hall camp this morning apprantley Anton has a right diva on his hands.

    Jerry wanted to wear one of her own creations for the waltz and I'm also guessing she wanted the track to be Marylin Monroe I want To Be Loved By You.

    So I'm assuming she didn't get her way on both counts.

    Off to work now will comment after the show tonight.

    Keeeeeeeep Dancing

    Hi all,

    Firstly to PoshFrockAndFeatherBoag I'm highly amused by your comment and I don't believe you showed any malice and also I do love comradery humour thank you very much one thing I like about posting on these blogs the politeness of it all.

    Well that's my dramatic reteric over with now I'm making my final comments before tomorrow's live show tonight as I will be at work at the shjop and will just be racing in get my tea and sit in front of the TV for the 2nd live show so let's cut to the chase and get down to it shall we.

    My top 5 this week are.

    Lisa and Robin( After last week I am expecting some seriously entertaining dancing she might not be classed technically but what this lady lacks in technicality she sure makes up for in entertainment she is my one to watch tomorrow night and I think she will nail it and come back better than ever)

    Sid and Ola( The music choice says it all do Sid's hips lie in all honesty his ballroom dancing didn't lie last week his Latin certianly won't another one of my favourites to watch)

    Victoria and Brendan( I am looking forward to these two as I believe Victoria was down last week because of the nerves but I have a feeling she will conquer them she has a great music choice and I have a feeling she will come back better and show she is a major contender in this competition)

    Artem and Fern( By rights I should have put these two in my bottom three but there are more worthy candidates for that honour okay there Cha Cha was a bit of a washout but I have a feeling their ballroom will redeem them)

    James and Denise( As far as I am concerned they are another couple who could vye for being major contenders they were on a winning roll last week I hope they keep it going)

    With all the positives thete has to be negatives and well my bottom three are as follows.

    Louis and Flavia( I'm guessing a Waltz for them this week and what a song choice to dance to I mean Puppy Love it doesn't go together in any ballroom dance and I think no matter what dance this couple perform to this music choice I think it could go either way it will either be liked or totally hated)

    Micheal and Natalie( My guess of a dance with these two is a jive because in my opinion you only dance a jive to This Old House by Shakin Stevens and in all honesty not so much the dance content I'm not going to like but the pure cheese that is going to come with this routine)

    Richard and Erin( My guess a Cha Cha and for me this will make Quentin Wilson from Series 1 sound like a having a show in for the UK Closed Ballroom Championships in Blackpool just one sentence sums this up Embrassing Uncle at a wedding)

    Nicky and Karen are Irish football team were humiliated at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and Nicky your country needs you to lift our sprirts but will Karen's rule breaking and passion to win one way or another ruin it for him.

    Johnny and Iveta(Enough said) and Anton and Jerry(Was reading the comments on thuis couple and she has the master of ballroom dance teaching her and yet she still requires an employment contract and a full Trade Union to make sure she dances the contracted hours says a lot doesn't it)

    Any couples I didn't mention the jury is still out on.

    Well that's it for me work in the morning
    Goodnight all and Keeeeeeeep Dancing

    Fergal, I stand happily corrected. I did indeed misunderstand. Thank you for clarifying. Might I be so bold as to disagree with your assertion that being on the main computer will help with 'spekking and grammar', lol!

    ('lol' doesn't really convey what I am trying to say... I mean 'not said with any malice, merely trying to convey comradely humour, as I would never wish to offend' but there doesn't appear to be any shorthand for that...)

    @21 Flea - hello long time no hear!!!!
    I agree with you wholeheartedly as another Anton Fan.
    Anton's favourite dance is the foxtrot and he is know as the master of it on the programe so I do hope that she tries her best for him!!!!

    Otherwise like you I am supporting Robin and Lisa and Erin and Richard (well she is Anton's other half professionally speaking)

    You misunderstand me PoshFrockandFeatherBoag Micheal Buble if his music was a desert it would be Chocolate Gateaux tempting and heaven to eat.

    In other words I have every album by Micheal Buble I even sang karaoke to a track from his Christmas album last year granted my karaoke version was rubbish but it was fun but getting on the point Micheal Buble is up there with the likes of Sinatra and Dean Martin and I love jazz and swing music so feelgood.

    What I was referring to as pie and chips was cheesey songs such as Love Shack and This Old House by Shakin Stevens typically cheesy and not modern enough for me.

    Figgero (9), I marked Steamywindows 'up' for you, to negate your accidental 'down'... :) I agree with you, Steamy, about Adele songs!

    Fergal, I don't consider Michael Buble to be 'pie & chips' (he is spectacular live, especially his unaccompanied [and unmiked!] 'Song for You' which reached all the way to us on the back row of the N.I.A.) although there is no doubt that Frank Sinatra is top banana. It makes no odds, anyway, because it isn't as though they use the original track.

    ps I know 'unmiked' isn't the correct word - I just can't think of it right now...!)

    Brilliant that the gorgeous Mr Salmon is dancing to a song by my favourite Singer, Seal. Just hope Lance and Dave Arch do it justice as Seal has a very tricky voice to do. Would love to see them do a VW to Seal's Letting Go from the Commitment Album. ☯

    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 ?
