Can you believe it, we've passed the half way point of Strictly Come Dancing 2012! And you've never been more chatty.

So where do we begin? Well, why not with the theme tune. A fan with screen name Quintassential sang/typed along to it at the beginning of the week "do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do it's time for Strictly It Takes Two"

The Painto Doble videos seem to have been inspiring you Strictly fans out there to get involved with using your artistic skills to draw a Strictly scenario. BlackMEmpireInc sent in this great picture of Len Goodman. Thank you for this!

Did you see Lisa's prize for winning her It Takes Two quiz on Wednesday? You can see it in this week's gallery as well as other great behind the scenes images.

Speaking of costume design, there's a lot of love online for our resident Fashion Guru, Mr Julien MacDonald. Kate Owen Said "I love Julien MacDonald" while natalieking17 wondered if our glambassador would "ever consider being a BBC Strictly contestant?" To which Julien replied with "never." We're not convinced!

#ittakesbrew is still going strong with more fans settling down to watch It Takes Two with a nice cuppa tea. How do you take yours? Tell us below and get involved with a craze sweeping the nation!

Lexington just got home "in time to make my #ittakesbrew for It Takes Two." Phew! While Charlotte Collins had her "#ittakesbrew for #ittakestwo. Can't wait for the highlight of my day to begin!"

Ian -

Ian Waite gave us another great Warm Up on Wednesday, along with his glittery magic wand and telestrator. Jenny Deakin thinks that "Ian Waite is awesome" and we can confirm. He really is.

Brendan gazes off into the distance

Every week we are overwhelmed with the online support for all of our couples. Hayleigh Kitcher can't make her mind up about who is her favourite; "I absolutely love Brendan and Louis!! OMG!!!" While Julie Paternoster said "love Nimble." And who can forget the "standing ovulation" mistake from Vincent. His classic Italianish returned while he was on the It Takes Two sofa. Sarah Stone was just one of many who began the hashtag "#standingovulation" along with the comment "Love It Vincent!"

Thank you so much for all of your comments throughout the week about It Takes Two and Strictly. Some of them really make the production office giggle and we love showcasing some of the best comments on the show and our official BBC blogs.

Don't forget Zoe and her amazing collection of jumpers and shoes will be on your screen every weekday from 6.30pm on BBC Two. Join in the conversation either on Twitter, Facebook or on the blog.

Keeeeeeeeeep commenting!

    Wembly was good, but camera shots didn't focus on dancers enough. Too many shots of light fittings in ceiling and distance shots!

    Loved the show as usual - and I do not want to be unkind about anyone, but I do believe that one of the presenters is making a fool of themselves which is a TERRIBLE shame for someone who has given so much joy to millions of people for so many years and should perhaps bow out gracefully??

    I really enjoyed the show and so glad Lisa and Robin will be dancing next week. Only thing that spoiled it for me was Girls Aloud, this show has class but I'm afraid Cheryl and co do not. Bruce isn't getting any younger but he's a class act and therefore attracts class showbiz acts. Time to say bye bye Claudia Winkleman and take your friends Girls aloud with you.

    I thought the programme was very enjoyable, as usual, and well balanced - but please, please, please, could the cameramen stop messing about with the positioning of their filming. A birds eye view of a couple dancing does not show off the skill in their steps and indeed makes the viewer feel slightly sick when rapidly zooming in and out; surely the filming should provide the viewer with a picture that shows off the skill of the dancers rather than the skills of the camermen.

    Oh no lost one of my favourite pro dancers...
    Erin and Richard well done for getting this far you were both fantastic...
    Richard your journey in the last 2 and half months has been great and from being totally not able to dance you can now dance better than most of the breakfast presenters... and you obviously adore Erin...

    Erin you did it again.... how you manage to teach the celebs each year is brilliant... and here's one for you to wind Anton up with when you do your question and answer session on your tour... I've danced at Wembley as part of the competition and you haven't.... just when he winds you up...

    Thank you for making Saturday night's so entertaining and making me smile...
    Love you both!!!
