After her second consecutive week at the bottom of the leaderboard it was the end of the road for Victoria who finally faced her fears and fellow sports person Michael Vaughan in the Dance Off. Sadly her performance wasn't enough to prevent her leaving the competition as the judges unanimously saved Michael.

Reflecting on her time Victoria said... “It’s been so much fun; I have loved every second of it. It pushed me totally out of my comfort zone which I think you really need to do in life. Brendan has been fantastic, the people behind the scenes here – the hair, make up, I love the costumes. It’s been a fantastic experience.”

As always we were first on the floor to find out how the remaining celebrities felt about Victoria's elimination.

 

Eight become seven and our remaining celebrities react to the result

    @Rufus

    Completely agree with your views on Louis. His effortless fluidity contrasts powerfully with his commanding presence, and were he paired with a dancer who complemented this unique style, I'm convinced he has the potential to flourish. Very interested to see how the Charleston will pan out!

    @ 73. Sandykin

    Thank you for going to the trouble of letting me know, but I am afraid I did know. They got to Show 1 of the final and did the Viennese Waltz scoring 40 and the Showdance. So they finished 3rd.

    I will let you in on a trade secret. I know that because have been keeping track since 2010 of the numbers in every Strictly Come Dancing series. I hope you can follow what I say. It is quite involved. I basically have several tables of information open to me.

    I don't know how clued up you are on spreadsheets but I have been keeping in lots of little tables in a spreadsheet document each week's dance together with the marks by each judge, the total and where each couple finished.

    I also have two more tables I follow over other 'worksheets'. In one I keep track of the average scores.
    In the other I have sorted all the scores by each pro. So all the marks for the various dances performed by Vincent Simone is all in one table, all the marks for the various dances performed by James Jordan is all in another, etcetera.

    But I also have lots of a much larger table or chart which is the most important one of them all. All the dances performed on Strictly are located across the top. Every time a pro get's eliminated I log all their scores for each dance over their time. I go from bottom to top so the winning pro is at the top and the last placed pro is at the bottom. But this covers not just series 8 to now. It covers every series. Using Wikipedia to record series 1 to 7.

    Hope you understood all that.

    I know it is all quite involved and complex but it combines two loves of mine. Strictly' and compiling stats and information. Can't wait for tonight to hear Russell Grant's stats.

    @scdfanatic. James reached the final with Pamela Stephenson and she scored consistently higher than Denise. Thought you'd like to know

    @ armchairdancer.
    Good morning to you too.
    I've met and worked with a number of singers, done a bit myself and have trained people in up to 8 part harmony singing, which is my real love, though I'm a pianist by trade..and not a singing teacher.
    I've very rarely come across anyone who's tone deaf..the two which really stick in the memory, were from the same family, father and daughter, though it didn't stop her being an amazing flautist! :O)
    Aural exams were always a nightmare for her, of course.

    I've also come across people who can sing well acoustically but struggle using a mic and, of course, vice-versa, there are any number who sound great with a mic and not too good without one..it's amazing what a bit of reverb etc can do to even the most average voice!

    I quite like the use of props on SCD and love it when they're introduced in Dancing On Ice, I think it really tests some of the performers on that show.
    But I understand why some people don't like them and agree that they often get in the way, but in the end, I think, props, or not, there's no hiding place if a person can't cut it on the dance floor.

    Rich.

    Morning neorich, I was really interested in your comments about almost everyone being able to sing. My daughter is an opera singer and her teacher always said just what you did . The thing I have always thought is that singers have nothing to 'hide' behind , no instrument , well their voice is the instrument of course. Perhaps with some people who always have a prop ( thinking bicycle here) it's just too difficult without it ? Just too exposed perhaps. Not wishing to denigrate VP by describing her bike as a prop I hasten to add, but she did come across as very reserved.

    @nuttynora.

    Well said, it's a similar sort of comment to one that irks myself and other musicians I know when I hear people say "so & so can't sing.".....when in fact, the person concerned can produce a fairly accurate rendition of a song, hitting most of the notes in the right order and with the right rhythm and with very few mistakes in pitching..
    The sound that comes out may not be to everyone's taste and the person might not have the greatest voice in the world, but that's a world away from tone-deafness, which is actually very rare.

    Most of us can "dance," well, shake it about a bit on a Saturday night anyway!
    :O)

    Kitkat

    You have a point regarding Denise and Chicago, i hadn't thought of it like that.

    I can see where your coming from with the sports thing, a good quetion for "statsman".

    There are quite a few xcomments saying Victoria could'nt dance, which are unfair. What she couldn't do was perform?
