Love, love changes everything and this week the romance of our specially themed week made some of our celebrities blossom, including Ben Cohen who had Craig announce "(I was) willing you to do well and dance well and you know what, you did!"

While others were left feeling unceremoniously dumped by the Judges. With Len using a hairy analogy to exclaim to Dave Myers "well it was like being waxed. It was painful while it’s happening and then lovely when it’s over."

So who will face heartbreak as their Strictly love turns sour? Remind yourself of our Leaderboard scores and then tune-in at 7.20pm for our Results Show. Bring the tissues!

    Very sadly, it's become de rigueur to have people whooping and clapping at the beginning of songs, sometimes within the first few bars, once the listeners "recognize," which song has been started..
    I do it all the time, at home, when I'm walking around with my iPod..and in the car, though the latter is a bit risky, but you still get chance to clap, at least once before having to replace your hands on the steering wheel, before causing a major accident ;O)

    In some of these shows now, the smallest hint of a high note is met, or encouraged from behind the scenes to elicit mass hysteria..

    This, for me, is one of the many problems with the X-Factor..

    With Strictly, it is, I assume being encouraged when the dancers do an amazing move?
    Maybe someone who's been to an actual studio night could confirm whether it's true?

    With standing ovations, again, like with the X-Factor, the whole point of the act has been demeaned.

    I certainly, as an individual, wouldn't stand, unless I thought I'd seen something spectacular, like perhaps Sophie & Brendan's "Charleston," or Natalie & Artem's "Waltz."

    But, it seems that getting to the end of the dance in one piece is enough for the powers that be at the BBC......."look (insert couple of choice) they're on their feet...YOU did that"..:O)

    Claudia wears the things she does because she would look uncomfortable in a girlie dress AND she does a good job, love her sense of humour. In answer to comments about it being unfair that Natalie is a trained dancer, it's rubbish, she went to a stage school where you do a bit of everything and she just happens to be very good as was Tom Chambers because he also danced when younger. No one is criticising Fiona for attending ballet school 40 odd years ago but they would if she was top of the leader board. Best of luck to Ashley, Natalie,Fiona and Debroah.

    I thought Vanessa danced SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than Julian did and feel strongly that the judges were reluctant to get rid of Julian for politically correct reasons!!

    Puzzled? Can anyone tell me why it is neccessary to cheer and clap every other move on the dance floor? I was particularly annoyed when during the brilliant singing of Andrea Bocelli,the audience drowned out his voice cheering the dancers. It used to be the thing to applaud at the end of a dance or song. Also, are the audience told to give a standing ovation? I don't think some of them were deserved. But then what do I know??

    What I do not understand, is such hostility against Julien.
    On which basis do you conclude that he is insincere?

    This happened before. I do not like when a label is assigned to a person, in principle.
    I regret that Vanessa is gone, but Julien danced better.

    This year is an extremely good line up, and very soon good dancers (celebrities) start leavig one-by-one.
    Be prepared!
    Cheers,
    Misoshiro
