    Comment number 1.

    I am a huge fan of Richard and am gutted he has gone out. He was gracious in defeat and I shall miss him (and I am 70 years young and female). I think Richard and Erin made a great team and Erin's lovely comments to him after being voted out were very touching.

    Can this be read out when Zoe reads emails etc?

    Why is it that both Lewis and Nicky were criticized for the dance content when the choreography is beyond their control. Craig particularly picks on Lewis for this when it is Flavia who choreographs the dance

    I agree with you there Lindylou10 louis and Nicky shouldn't be criticized for the dance content when it is Karen or flavia is the choreographer. and that goes for all of them it shouldn't be the celebs that should be criticized for it
