Nancy and Anton leave Strictly Come Dancing

BBC Strictly James | 19:57 UK time, Sunday, 30 October 2011

Nancy Dell'Olio and Anton Du Beke have become the fourth couple to leave Strictly Come Dancing. The pair found themselves up against Audley and Natalie in the bottom two after receiving the lowest score this week from the judges.

The duo were only awarded 14 points - four points lower than last week - and that result, combined with the public vote, meant they had to say goodbye.

Bruno summed up the pair's routine when he said: "Nancy, emerging from the coffin, looking like the Queen of the Night but you danced like the walking dead. It's like the zombie of Bond Street."

We were first on the dancefloor to find out how the other celebrities and professionals were feeling:

Week 5 - Results Show - 30 October

BBC Strictly James | 18:25 UK time, Sunday, 30 October 2011

Yesterday's Halloween spooktacular was a colorful affair which saw a number of our celebrities in unusual places: Nancy started her routine in a coffin, Lulu and Craig (separately) arrived by gliding into the ballroom on a zip wire, and Audley saved Natalie from a rather large Venus flytrap.

But tonight one couple will leave the competition. The judges handed out a plethora of different scores yesterday, and the public vote will also be a factor too. Who will stay and who will go? Watch from 7.25pm on BBC One.

Week 5 - Leaderboard

BBC Strictly Suzy | 21:00 UK time, Saturday, 29 October 2011

The spooky spectacular tonight was full of drama - we saw glitter covered coffins, smoking cauldrons and even a jumping hip thrust on the judges table. Alesha dished out two tens this weekend for both Team Hali and Team Jastina - on the opposite side of the leaderboard, Nancy and Anton scored 14 out of 40, which put them at the bottom of the pack.

Our leader last week, Chelsee, suffered a wardrobe malfunction but still made it through the routine and finished in 3rd place with a very respectable score of 32. Jason and Kristina have taken back the high score crown, but will that be enough to keep them in the competition?

Here are the scores for Week 5 - find out who will be getting the chop on Sunday at 7.25pm on BBC One.

Audley Harrison and Natalie Lowe

Former boxer Audley Harrison and his partner Natalie Lowe are Team Audalie. Audley has been suprisingly light on his size 17 feet, zipping across the dancefloor with all the grace of a prize fighter. Len praised him for his Foxtrot remarking "I am sitting here giving you a standing ovation. Well done" Craig picked up on his natural rhythm during the Salsa, remarking "You look like you have got a groove going, which is fantastic. And a bit of hip rotation, which we love!"

Welcome to the fan page of Team Hartem. Holly Vallance and her partner Artem Chigvintsev have impressed the judges with their high energy routines and innovative choreography. Will they last the distance in the competition? Bruno seems to think so, saying to Holly..."you have got plenty of milage in front of you, tune it up baby because you have got it!"

Fighting off wayward feather boas, illegal lifts and some rather strong-worded 'advice' from the judges, Team Nanton are still holding tight in the competition. Nancy and Anton's colourful performances have even thrown Craig off balance, describing Nancy's footwork akin to a "plodding horse" whilst offering the rather more encouraging "I think that secretly there is talent beneath the surface and I think you really need to invest in that."

Tonight Rory Bremner became the third celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2011. On Saturday Rory and his professional partner Erin Boag performed a Cha Cha which failed to leave an impression on the judges, with Len stepping in on Rory's political comedy territory, to remark; 'Well you're like the government there is a lot going on and not all of its good."

Tonight after the combined scores of the judges and the public vote were counted, Rory found himself in the bottom two with Nancy, before the result that Rory was leaving was announced.

Jennifer Grey joins the judges on Strictly

Post categories:

BBC Strictly Nora | 09:26 UK time, Thursday, 20 October 2011

Hollywood star Jennifer Grey will foxtrot into Strictly Come Dancing as a guest judge next month. Stepping into Len Goodman's shoes for one week, she will join Craig Revel Horwood, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November.

Most famous for her leading role in one of the greatest dance movies of all time: Dirty Dancing, Jennifer is no stranger to world of ballroom, glamour and glitter-balls. Last year she and professional partner Derek Hough were crowned champions of Dancing with the Stars, the US version of Strictly.

Jennifer says: "I am delighted to be involved. I so look forward to making the pilgrimage to the birthplace of the greatest dance show, the mecca of spray tans and tangos, and to sit in for the great and pernickety Len Goodman."

Waltzing her way from the dance-floor to the judging panel, Jennifer will be able to draw upon her personal dancing experiences to offer a constructive critique to the remaining couples in the competition.

Strictly's special Broadway Week was an extravaganza of music, glamour and full-on theatrics. But which couple were worthy of a West End smash and which couple were more amateur dramatics?

It was a tale of two tangos, as Jason and Kristina topped the leadboard for the third week with a camped-up routine that Craig described as 'stu-pend-ous'. Whilst back down at the bottom of the board unlucky Nancy and Anton's performance failed to razzle dazzle.

60 second chat with... Henry Winkler

Post categories:

BBC Strictly Gemma BBC Strictly Gemma | 10:56 UK time, Saturday, 15 October 2011

Each week Karen Hardy is joined by a special guest in her Red Button booth. For Broadway week it seemed quite appropriate the legend turned children's author Henry Winkler OBE stopped by and shared his love of Strictly with the viewers. Happy Days!

Online presenter, Nikki Dean caught up with Henry AKA 'The Fonz' moments before Saturday's live show, for a 60 second chat...

Henry Winkler

"Don't touch the leather"

How big a fan of Strictly are you and how did your love affair with the show start?

Well in America we have 'Dancing with the Stars' and we watch that every week. I have been lucky enough to be here at Strictly for the last three or four years, in Liverpool I met Ricky Whittle and gave him a pep talk and he did very well. I'm thinking maybe that had something to do with me (laughs).

Talking of Dancing with the Stars, there's lots of campaigns on the internet to get you on the show as a contestant, is that ever likely to happen?

Well I've learnt in this career to 'never say never' but I can come as close to saying never as I probably can, so I'll say no.

So the rumour that you'd only take part if Ron Howard was your partner isn't true?

(laughs) No, somebody made that up. I would only do it if Tess was my partner.

Well that's never happened before but maybe we could have a word. Would you do Strictly then?

The chances of that are as good as getting me on Dancing with the Stars!

It's Broadway week tonight - hypothetically if you were a contestant which big show tune would you love to dance to?

Broadway week is very exciting, it is truely live television at it's best. I would dance to Billy Elliot as it's possibly one of the geatest musicals I have ever seen in my whole life. I can't tap dance but I would teach myself just to do that and I'd wear the tights too. I have no problem wearing tights, I know who I am and tights does not change that it merely makes my legs look better!

How is your dancing? Can you throw some shapes?

(laughs) The lines I create, from my fingertips to my toes, it's extraordinary. 'Throwing some shapes' I'm stealing that line, it's funny!

As the ultimate king of cool who would you pick as this years 'coolest' celebrity?

Harry, is the king of cool. I just met them all in the make up room and they are lovely, lovely human beings. I would have to say Harry is cool, but Robbie is pretty cool too, I love his hair, I'd like mine like that. I had a photo with Audley harrison and I looked like a King Charles spaniel next to him - he's a big guy!

And let's talk judges, do you have a favourite?

I love Len, Bruno is very exciting - he is a TV show unto himself in the corner of that table. Craig is very knowledgable, very straightforward, knows his stuff, doesn't pull any punches and is very clear. Alesha is luuuvely.

We caught up with some of our dancers as they arrived at Television Centre this morning to find out who has those jazz hands at the ready! Anton explains how he is feeling about his Tango, and Brendan let's us in on which judges he will be targeting this week...

Edwina and Vincent leave Strictly

Post categories:

BBC Strictly Nora | 19:01 UK time, Sunday, 9 October 2011

Edwina Currie and her partner, Vincent Simone became the first couple to leave, ending their Strictly journey just two weeks into the competition. Tonight's elimination saw the former MP and her professional partner in the bottom two with Audley Harrison & Natalie Lowe. But after a combination of the judges' scores and the public vote, it became clear it was sparkly Strictly curtains for Edwina.

We were on the dance floor when the announcement was made, and caught up with Jason, Alex, Nancy, Harry, Lulu, Rory and Chelsee for their reactions to the news.

Week 2 - Results Show - 9 Oct 2011

Post categories:

BBC Strictly Nora | 18:40 UK time, Sunday, 9 October 2011

This Saturday's Strictly showdown saw all our fourteen couples take to the floor for the last time, as one celebrity now faces the first elimination of 2011.

Jason and Kristina's smoking hot Foxtrot won them the admiration of the judges and a place at the top of the leaderboard. Whilst Nancy and Anton's Salsa failed to ignite, leaving them languishing at the bottom.

Who deserves to stay another week in Strictly? Share your thoughts with us here...

Week 2 - Leaderboard

Post categories:

BBC Strictly Nora | 21:09 UK time, Saturday, 8 October 2011

A second electrifying week of Strictly, a second week with Jason riding high on the leaderboard and Nancy at the bottom. But that's where the similarity ends; Robbie had a reversal of fortune, Harry put the fox into the Foxtrot and Russell proved he wasn't a one-trick Astrologer, securing his second standing ovation of the series for the Salsa.

It was also a night of unexpected suprises, Miss Alex Jones found a fan in John Prescott, Chelsee thrilled in her frilled trousers and Nancy stepped over the judges desk and into the arms of Anton.

Here's the scores on the doors for week two...

The first live shows were crammed full of sequins, shells and boas and this week promises to be just as exciting with our couples performing either a Latin or a Ballroom dance LIVE on Saturday.

The judges certainly had some constructive criticism for our dancing duos at the weekend, but have our starlets taken on their comments or will we see a repeat of a 'curtain stuck on the spin cycle'?

A new addition to Strictly this year is the alternative Red Button commentary. On Saturday 8th of October Karen Hardy will be casting her choreographer's eye over the dancefloor with 2010 finalist Pamela Stevenson.

The first celebrity superfan to join Karen for last week's shows was funny girl Katy Brand - who has some dancing experience of her own. A very memorable rendition of Beyonce's Single Ladies on Let's Dance for Sport Relief. Here's a little recap of their commentary...

Here at Strictly HQ we are still buzzing from the weekend, but the excitement just keeps coming, as we've just got hold of some bloopers from the celebrity trailers.

Lulu definitely looks comfy on the sofa, but do you think Dan will ever bust THAT move in the Strictly ballroom? Also, someone should really tell Robbie that he has something stuck to his shoe...
