With eight couples left in the competition, they're rehearsing harder than ever this week to improve their smooth moves on the dance floor.

So how have they been getting on in training? Will it be a 'Beautiful Day' for Mark and Iveta as they dance the Foxtrot to Michael Buble's song of the same name? Will Ben and Kristina better their top score from Blackpool with this week's Charleston or will the Judges 'No Diggity' it?

Take a look at our exclusive clip of this week in training to see who you think will top this week's Leaderboard.

Catch up with our remaining eight couples in training!

    A difficult paso? Hardly, there was little paso in it and both pasos last week were infinitely better. Luckily, I am doing something else next week and won't feel obliged to watch the show. darcey's head has turned to the mush regularly witnessed in the judges to her left.

    Trashy music for a tango but this has been the case for most of the dances for the whole of the series.

    The judges are being overly strict this week - let's hope it continues for the rest pf the show.

    Poor Natalie putting on the tears at Dave going out of strictly!!!!
    It was interesting when on itt Zoe asked team artem how they felt about the comments being made about Natalie's experience in dance. No straight answer but says he is pushing her with difficult moves for tonight so I guess that is an answer!! He also agreed that they should not have been given 10's as they both made obvious mistakes.
    well it will be interesting tonight, is it 4 x 10's for them. No doubt the judges have made their minds up already. Do I guess they will open the show ????

    Why are people marking down comments that are simply wishing a couple luck? I marked it up not because I agreed with it but because it just seems so stupid that it has negative marks beside it.

    "I'm joining the opinion that Sophie's rumba could suffer from not injecting enough emotion needed for the dance. Sophie's really mastering the movements and with her musical background should keep well in time so I reckon the technique will flow really well."

    Technically she's amazing when she's at her best. I'm crossing my fingers that, with the rumba being so technical, she does well. Then if she can just bring the performance, it could be amazing. Holly's rumba with Brendan, when her partner was injured, was one of her best dances so let's hope he gives Sophie confidence for this dance too.

    @29 I think Kevin is very popular. I nearly split my sides on ITT when he went to "storm off" and picked a locked door, and then hammed it up!

    Definitely warmed to him, as opposed to Aljaz, who doesn't seem to have much of a personality--or at least, one is not coming through. The A Team remind me of Ali and Brian, who were technically good but who had no heart/soul/whathaveyou in their performance.

    It's hard to predict the placings on the leaderboard this week. It could be a benefit to have Craig's full use of the 1-10 votes as all the other judges could leave a pile of contestants with the same total!

    I'm joining the opinion that Sophie's rumba could suffer from not injecting enough emotion needed for the dance. Sophie's really mastering the movements and with her musical background should keep well in time so I reckon the technique will flow really well.

    It was interesting to read in the weekend papers that Ashley also has a musical background. This could be why his timing of the dances is very good.

    I'm loving how Ben has thrown himself into the spirit of the Charlston. The fun mode could mean more votes from the viewing public.

    Mark may find it hard to give the foxtrot enough swish and sway for this stage of the competition, though I reckon there will be bucketloads of emotion that he always manages to exude.

    Abbey is almost the total opposite this week as her personality is far away from the aggression and fire of the paso doble, whereas she can really move really well.

    And the confidence of Patrick, Susanna and Natalie is really impressive. It then will be interesting to see if the public will support them with enough votes.

    I'm undecided about the final positions (as anyone might be in the bottom two!) but think that the main person to benefit this week will be the dancer who is saved in the dance off - as they will come back more determined than ever to perform really well next week.

    Whatever happens, I'm confident it will be a brilliant show tonight. Good luck to everyone!

    Can it be that Kevin is becoming the star of the show?
    Kevin and Susanna are electric.
    Good luck to them on Saturday. 10 -10 -10 -10.

    Hi all, again,

    Forgot to put it was a top 5 I didn't include Susannah and Kevin as they have a Cha Cha they are my favourite couple throughout the competition they will do well.

    In summary Mark and Iveta do a fair enough attempt they get over the line however I think he has reached his peak in this competition so if he does get over the line I think Ben and Kristina could be in danger if this Charleston doesn't go well.

    Keeeeeeeeeep Dancing
