BBC Strictly Simon BBC Strictly Simon Online Team

As the clock ticks down to another crunch show on Saturday, our 13 stressed Strictly couples have been working hard all week rehearsing their new dances. 

Julien and Janette aka Team Sparkle found themselves in the dance-off for second time running last week, how have they been getting on training for their Spice Girl themed Salsa? 

Team Hauerly Daveson brought the house down with their dramatic Pasa Doble, but how has Hairy Biker Dave been coping with the more sedate and romantic Waltz?

And Abbey and Alijaz have been tirelessly practicing their Tango all week, but will they wow the judges with it?

Find out how all the of the couples have been getting on by watching the clip below, then let us know who you think will be top of the Leader Board at the end of Saturday’s show and who will be plunged into the dreaded dance-off.

    So many good dancers this year, so hard to choose!!

    By the way, can we please ban Dry Ice from Strictly - we want to be able to see the dancer's feet!!!

    Please BBC for goodness sake get rid of the so-called "Steadycam" it does nothing for the show but to confuse the action. Rotating in the opposite direction to the dancers, in semi close-up all that is seen is a blur. Please use a camera that shows the dancers and does interfere with their use of the dancefloor. It always has been and will continue to be a flippin' nuisance on this show. It no doubt has uses elsewhere but it only detracts from this show.

    I hope the producers pay attention to the requests to ban dri ice... We want to see the footwork. Plus please, please can we have more close ups on footwork. Otherwise great and loving SCD as usual.
