Can you believe it, we've passed the half way point of Strictly Come Dancing 2012! And you've never been more chatty.

So where do we begin? Well, why not with the theme tune. A fan with screen name Quintassential sang/typed along to it at the beginning of the week "do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do it's time for Strictly It Takes Two"

The Painto Doble videos seem to have been inspiring you Strictly fans out there to get involved with using your artistic skills to draw a Strictly scenario. BlackMEmpireInc sent in this great picture of Len Goodman. Thank you for this!

While ilds sent in a picture of Lisa's costume that her eight year old daughter designed.

 

Did you see Lisa's prize for winning her It Takes Two quiz on Wednesday? You can see it in this week's gallery as well as other great behind the scenes images.

Speaking of costume design, there's a lot of love online for our resident Fashion Guru, Mr Julien MacDonald. Kate Owen Said "I love Julien MacDonald" while natalieking17 wondered if our glambassador would "ever consider being a BBC Strictly contestant?" To which Julien replied with "never." We're not convinced!

#ittakesbrew is still going strong with more fans settling down to watch It Takes Two with a nice cuppa tea. How do you take yours? Tell us below and get involved with a craze sweeping the nation!

Lexington just got home "in time to make my #ittakesbrew for It Takes Two." Phew! While Charlotte Collins had her "#ittakesbrew for #ittakestwo. Can't wait for the highlight of my day to begin!"

Ian Waite gave us another great Warm Up on Wednesday, along with his glittery magic wand and telestrator. Jenny Deakin thinks that "Ian Waite is awesome" and we can confirm. He really is.

Every week we are overwhelmed with the online support for all of our couples. Hayleigh Kitcher can't make her mind up about who is her favourite; "I absolutely love Brendan and Louis!! OMG!!!" While Julie Paternoster said "love Nimble." And who can forget the "standing ovulation" mistake from Vincent. His classic Italianish returned while he was on the It Takes Two sofa. Sarah Stone was just one of many who began the hashtag "#standingovulation" along with the comment "Love It Vincent!"

Thank you so much for all of your comments throughout the week about It Takes Two and Strictly. Some of them really make the production office giggle and we love showcasing some of the best comments on the show and our official BBC blogs.

Don't forget Zoe and her amazing collection of jumpers and shoes will be on your screen every weekday from 6.30pm on BBC Two. Join in the conversation either on Twitter, Facebook or on the blog.

Keeeeeeeeeep commenting!

    @dancer - perhaps if we keep telling them, they'll eventually get fed up and fix it!

    Judith@57 Sorry, I meant to rate your comments about ratings with a + but it came out as a -
    I'm glad you brought it up, as I have never succeeded ......and obviously still failing. Thank you anyway.

    @Acebiker21 :

    As @armchairdancer has already said : was hoping you would have pedalled off into the distance by now after your last verbally abusive comment re Lisa !!!
    What is your problem ? And the silly CAPS ?

    Hello It takes Two I need some help, I run a dance club at our School, I only have 1 boy who comes called Tom, he is getting an awful lot of stick from our year 6 boys about dancing. He really enjoys it but is thinking of giving up. This I feel would be a real shame. So please a little mention about boys dancing and not giving up due to pressure would be great (I could play it in assembly via Iplayer) Many thanks

    I totally agree with Sues - the Royal Marines Band did a stunning job on Saturday night - so sad they were on for such a short time. So disappointing that no thanks or even a mention was given to them. They are dedicated professionals and deserved a mention. I enjoyed the show though also would like to have seen more of the dancing.

    Or "grocers' ". Trouble with pedantry is you do need to get it right yourself.

    That should be grocer's pricing board. Unless there's more than one grocer in which case it's grosers'.

    It Takes Two - love the programme but please learn how to correctly use apostrophes!!
    Last week when displaying comments from the Internet we had 1920's rather than 1920s and tonight we had 10's rather than 10s. I feel like I'm reading a grocers pricing board!

    Also, I suspect the reason that not many of the comments are rated is because you can't see the ratings buttons with this black background. You have to hover until the balloon saying 'Rate this comment positively' appears and then click, in the blind hope that you've picked the right rating.
