    Hi all,

    Well these weeks are going by quickly and we are into Week 4 of Strictly 2013.

    And for me it is all about chemistry from here on in because a good relationship with your pro partner speaks volumes as to whether or not the couple wants this or not.

    For me there are 3 couples who are proving week by week they are hungry to win Strictly 2013 and want to win Strictly 2013 and these are.

    Natalie and Artem
    Ben and Kristina
    Ashley and Ola

    For me the 3 main contenders this year these couples consistently are showing the competition a clean pair of heels they are miles in front for me, though Ben and Kristina were looking dodgy at the start but thanks to that rumba last week Ben has found his feet and is in Pole Posistion to be a potential finalist.

    Now that is not saying the competition aren't upping their game because they are, Susannah and Kevin are a potential threat to the main three they are improving week after week great marks and high praise.

    Deborah and Robin had major doubts about them but after last week doubt no more and also Sophie and Brendan looking forward to their classic Foxtrot this week.

    Fiona and Anton now there is a conundrum I like them would rate them very highly but this rumba could make or break them I mean Anton is a fantastic dancer I associate him with music by Cole Porter and the dance moves of the MGM greats such as Fred Astaireband Gene Kelly and Fiona is pretty sexy the problem is can Anton do sexy, seductive movements of the hips the jury is out but memo to all Anton fans I still like them it's the dance choice that concerns me.

    Pasha and Rachel and Abbey and Aljaz I said at the start all about chemistry and for me over the past 2 weeks I've been getting zero chemistry I mean Rachel and Abbey's Pro partners are giving it their all I just think Rachel and Abbey have lost all interest in the competition.

    Dave and Karen and Mark and Iveta yes they are entertaining yes they bring fun to the show but in my opinion it's just the same old routines different music.

    Same as Julien and Janette same old routine different music with these two it's just like a track on a CD playing over and over again.

    Prediction for this week he's been in the dance off twice so I think it's get your coat time for Julien this weekend.

    Just my thoughts
    Good luck to all on Saturday

    Could we Please have the live blog up & running 1/2 an hour, ok 10 minutes, before the start of the show tonight please.
    I say this because multi-tasking of looking at a tv screen & a computer screen at the same time is too difficult for me, I find single tasking quite enough of a strain !

    Why do we have to put up with the inane drivel that comes from Claudia and why does she have to continually shout the names of the people she introduces she is just irritating

    Having a bad back myself I sympathise with Natalie but I also agree with her continuing to dance. She will know which moves to avoid and sometimes the right moves can help. She was fabulous as usual and Abbey - what an improvement.
