The remaining eight Strictly couples will take to the dancefloor tonight – will any of them be able to overtake Denise and James at the top of the leaderboard? Last night saw tears, an ‘illegal lift’, and a judge already on the offensive; hopefully the rest of the Strictly class of 2012 won’t be in for the same treatment.

As tonight’s performers practice their steps and put the finishing touches on their outfit, we’ll be there to capture those EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes pictures you love to see. AND we’ll get a backstage reaction from all of tonight’s couples as soon as they step off the floor.

As ever, we’d love to hear your thoughts whilst Strictly is in session…

Louis: "It's good to get under one of the judges' skin"

Anton: "Maybe we shouldn't take such long lunches..."

Ricahrd: "It's excruciatingly exciting being on Strictly"

Robin: "I'm lost for words. I'm NEVER lost for words!"

Dani: "I channelled a kangaroo for some reason"

Johnny: "Last of the Summer Wine?! Liberty"

Ola: "Aww he has tears in his eyes!"

Kimberley: "Standing ovation! I didn't expect that!"

It's now or never!

    Re: The Scissor Sisters.
    What on earth a load of tuneless shouting over a computer has to do do with music is beyond me. One of the worst piles of rubbish I have ever seen or heard on this show

    Loved the Professional dance.

    Kimberly and Pasha- She has great musicality. Good potential, thought it was a good attempt at cha cha cha.

    Sid and Ola- He really surprised me. So elegant, liked his movement around the floor. Thought is posture was good. Loved the storytelling and really love Ola's dress and hair.

    Johnny and Iveta- He had amazing energy but his age but don't think the dance suited him. Maybe he'll be more of a ballroom dancer than Latin but we will have to wait and see. Looked like he was having fun.

    Dani and Vincent- Stronger posture needed but I think this will come with experience. Again she has great movement around the floor.

    Lisa and Robin- Lisa is my idol, amazing. The energy she had in that dance, she's doing for all the big ladies out there, me included. Thought that her personality really went well with the dance. Loved the bit she did at the Judges and lifting Robin. Went far beyond my expectations.

    Richard and Erin- Good movement around the floor. I felt he was a bit disconnected from the dance but still very good.

    Jerry and Anton- Loved that Sam Cook song. Agree with Judges that she was doing too much posing and not enough dancing but the bits I did see of Jerry was very good. She is a very sexy lady so can't wait for the Rumba or Salsa.

    Lewis and Flavia- Amazing. He really had good hip action and movement. His extensions were good probably his gymnastics helping with that. He did look too serious for the dance but he's a sportsman not an actor so it will take him maybe longer to express his emotions through his face and not just his dancing.

    Not sure I'll be able to stand Darcy as Judge for the next 2 months.
    She's boring !

    And whilst you're sorting the 'latest first' element to the site, can I say that white words on a black background are not the easiest to read. thank you. rsvp. x

    BBC JAMES . Please please please sort out this site. If its beyond your techies to put newest comments first could we at least have a page list at the top so could go to 'latest' ?

    ITT, great to have it back on. 6.30 has meaning in my life again. Show on Saturday absolutely fantastic. Could not believe Lisa Riley. What a woman!! Its going to be very difficult to pick a favourite this year. I already have about 5! Agree with all flatfeets comments. She got it spot on as always. Can't wait for the team names and the next show and so glad that the dance off is back. Wasn't Craig cute on tonights ITT by the way....................

    Afternoon all from a very wet miserable south coast. However, have just cheered myself up by watching Saturday nights 'fever' again. Looking forward to ITT later...so pleased to be back. A big hello to all the names I recognise from last year Ellen Hague , flatfeet, stephalex and all . Here's to another great SCD . Now, an important matter ; I keep asking if I can adopt Robin but no joy....any ideas ?

    What a fantastic cha cha performed by Lisa Riley and Robin Windsor her footwork is incredible and the dance was very fast. If her ballroom is as good as latin it really is going to be very exciting. Wonderful comments from all the judges including Craig! You Can Dance - Robin and her make a fantastic team and they have the most beautiful smiles because obviously enjoying dancing together. This dance has really put the cat amongst the pidgeons so it's really game on now. Louis and Flavia danced really well and I should imagine they are already overall favourites especially Darcey's by the look of things. Also pleased that the Dance Off is back - it makes an exciting end to the show. Disappointed in Jerry's attitude why sign up for a programme to learn to dance - if you have no intention of doing so! convinced if she put in the work she could do very well indeed learning to dance. Anton looks to have given up on her already. I am concerned about Victoria as she seems extremely fragile and Brendan is so competitive he doesn't really function at half speed does he. Worried same thing could happen once more. Maybe a very simple routine next week just to get her over this blip. Feel Fern and Artem are under performing at the moment - Fern is a great mover and Artem a great teacher don't give up on her Artem follow Robin's lead and let's have a much improved performance on Saturday. Sid and Ola were great and hoping his latin is just as good as his ballroom - Sid is a fine actor which is helping their dancing. Ola always seems able to get the very best from her partners each season doesn't she? don't think she takes any nonsense from her celebs just read about her husband James' nose. Yes this is shaping up to be the best strictly ever!
