There was drama aplenty even before the Week Seven Live Show got underway, as poor Natalie fainted during the dress run, and was told not to perform.

With a tantalising trip to the spiritual home of Ballroom, Blackpool for those who make it through to next week, the pressure was really on for the nine remaining couples.

Patrick and Anya may have been last to perform on the night, but their amazing American Smooth to ‘It had To be You’ topped the Leaderboard with 37, with Darcey giving them their first 10 of the series. Not bad for a man who achieved his half-century this week!

Two couples scored one point less than Team PatAnya, Abbey and Aljaz’s 1920s themed Charleston to ‘Cabaret’ wowed the Judges with plenty of quick, intricate footwork, whilst Susanna and Kevin’s beautiful Waltz had Craig purring to the BBC Breakfast presenter “You brought the frock to life!”.

The bottom of the scoreboard once again features Dave and Karen, their Scottish inspired Tango to ‘500 Miles’ wasn’t well received scoring them 20, with Bruno comparing him to former Strictly competitor John Sargeant – ouch!

Just above them are Mark and Iveta, their Rumba to ‘Goldfinger’ scored 23 and had Len exclaiming “you might have gold in your fingers, but you’ve got a bit of lead in your bum!”.

Who do you think deserves to be saved? And who will be plunged into the dreaded Dance Off, let us know what you think?

    Fabulous show - wouldn't miss it. Just a thought. Could we have the professionals do a POLKA which is the for runner of many of these dances? Your presentations are so impressive that it would be amazing and memorable. Jean G

    What a show!!!! What is wrong with Craig? Only 9 for Natalie when he did not criticise one thing about her performance. He seems to make a fetish about not giving 10. Everyone did an amazing job. Even Mark was better than usual but it really is time he made way for the dancers. Sophie really got into the spirit of her dance tonight and great choreography by Brendan.

    Patrick's dance was amazing he should not have been penalised because of the wardrobe malfunction that wasn't his fault and their recovery was amazing ..... should have been 10's!!!

    Another miraculous recovery for Natalie? First the "serious back injury" that lasted nearly two days, now "collapsing" and back to full fitness in another two. She's a fantastic dancer (having trained for years) but she won't win. I blame the production team for not doing their homework as other people seem to have found out her professional CV states "dancer". Strictly should be for those like Deborah, Abbie and Ben who are distinctly out of their comfort zone and have shown improvement. Craig's comments are so much more worthwhile than those of Bruno - who needs to be nailed to his damn chair!! And if anyone doesn't like my opinion - tough luck.
