It might be cold and wet outside, but the temperature’s rising here in the Strictly Ballroom because it’s Love Week! We’ve been nosing around backstage at Friday rehearsal to find out all the hot gossip and smooth talk ahead of Saturday’s live show.

With a week of tough rehearsals behind them, can our celebs channel their passionate, romantic and dare we say sexy side and knock our judges for six or will their dance date end in rejection? 

We caught up with our amorous couples to find out if they’ve caught the Love Bug, so if you want to find out what strange dreams Sophie has been having, what James and Ola danced to at their wedding, and which ROCK behemoth has been showing his love to Hairy Dave, then watch the video below.

 

Here's the gossip from Friday's rehearsals as our couples prepare for Love Week.

    Everyone did well this week. This current series has such great celeb dancers. Usually its easy to predict who will make the final but there are easily 6 couples who could feature this time round. Julien to go this week. He and Dave are the worst dancers but Dave's popularity will keep him in. Online voting much better last night and was able to cast my vote without problems.

    Whilst Dave is fun.................he should not be kept in because he makes you laugh..............I will vote for the person who from dance one up until the last dance has shown the most improvement.

    Really enjoyed tonight's show. Everyone upped their game this week. Its going to be harsh on whoever leaves but think that it will be Julien and Vanessa in the dance off. Oh and thanks BBC for sorting out the online voting this week - good work!

    On the opening show Natalie said by the age of 19 she wanted to be a dancer....obviously she had danced for years and it shows..NOT what strictly should be about..shame the researchers didn't weed this one out.

    Blimey, Natalie is amazing. She must have had some ballet training to pull that off after 3 weeks!
