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!"

    Audley and Natalie.
    Great attitude and good work done.
    Hoping you stay.

    wow I just LOVE watching you dance. Natalie your choreography is brilliant and Audley your smile could melt Polar ice! :) What do you prefer Audley; Latin or Ballroom?

    Best of luck on Saturday - please stay in the competition for a good long while yet! :) Sadly I can't do my part (vote for you) as I live in Dublin, but all my fingers and toes are crossed every week that you will get through... I certainly don't envy you the part where you stand in the spotlight waiting for Sir Bruce to please, please call out YOUR names that you are safe. That must be awful.

    Happy Birthday for yesterday Audley. Surprised the shoes they gave you did not look not that big.
    Hope you get a good slot on Saturday, I am sure Natalie will do some brilliant choreography & best of luck & knock em dead!

    Audley you are a delight, a gentlman with a wicked sense of humour.

    I think you have a great feel for the music, your work ethic and attitude is an example to others. I wish a few more would take the critisism on the chin pick themselves up and carry on like you do.

    I will be voting.

    Natalie your choreography is just brilliant.

    Loving your dancing Audley & Natalie! Keep up the good work. Good luck with the jive ♥

    Love the idea of Audley playing Audrey. Just wondering if Natalie's dress will pay homage to the Little Shop of Horrors opening number with the puff ball dressed singers.

    Loving the name. On first glance you think it is simply 'Audley' till you read it again. Like those visual puzzles you get.

    Not sure about the Jive like. Only the second time he has done a fast paced dance. The only other time was the Salsa. The others are all Ballroom. But I think the Jive is probably as fast again as the Salsa and I am not sure he will be able to carry his 255lb frame around the dance floor.

    Team Audalie you are fab. Love watching you Audley strutting your stuff, getting all Muhummad Ali light as a butterfly on your feet. I saw Craig at the BBC studios the other night - can't imagine why no one has mentioned the size of his feet - they were ENORMOUS!!!! So glad that you're still in the competition, keep going Audley prove them all wrong a big strong man can dance go for it xxx

    Good luck for tomorrow. ☺

    Yay - was so relieved to see you are still in the competition! You always bring a smile to your routines, you seem to genuinely have FUN when you dance. :) I'm sure Natalie will be able to help you get even better Audley and wow Natalie - yet another brilliant and entertaining routine! You are my favourite female pro :)

    So pleased that you managed to get through to the next round - Natalie you are a great dancer and one of the best female choreographers and teachers - it is obviously such a joy to you to teach others how to dance and all you ask is commitment and hardwork both of which Audley is more than happy to give you.It's amazing how beautifully Audley is able to dance particularly ballroom - he's positively graceful, I'm not sure how much longer he can stay in the show but he definitely shouldn't be the next one to go. He's actually learning the dances and isn't just depending on props and padding to get through. Hope we can see that wonderful smile of his for a while yet!

    So pleased you got through this week.

    The jive is not your dance but you gave it your all.

    Onward and upwards.

  • Comment number 14.

    the judges were right about this jive not being audleys best,i agree. but as len says,some dances suit some. audley,you are a foxtot man,wont for get that performance.

  • Comment number 15.

    Good luck for this week! You're my favourite contestant!!

  • Comment number 16.

    I so love you both. Natalie, to get Audley onto the ball of his feet, perhaps you could try putting pin tack ot the heel of his shoes!!!! Only when practicing of course. Audley, please don't put your fist in my face for this suggestion, I am after all 63!!! Love you both

    Best of luck with your Viennese Waltz tomorrow Team Audalie-I'm sure you'll do a beautiful routine! :) Fingers crossed you will stay away from the "bottom two" situation this time, I'm hoping to see you dance for a good long while yet. :) Sunny greetings from Dub

    Good luck for tonight Audley & Natalie. ☺

  • Comment number 19.

    Wow, that was beautifull choreography and I thought you deserved better score

  • Comment number 20.

    YAY- you got to stay in the competition! What a relief, I felt so sorry for you for ending up in the bottom two yet again... New week now though - new endeavours and hopefully you'll get the judges on your side so you get to stay out of the bottom two. It certainly is somebody else's turn to be there now don't you think? :)

  • Comment number 21.

    Audley, I absolutely love you and I am gona be soooooo gutted if you and Natalie are voted out, I think you are both fabulous!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE wear your nice sparkly birthday shoes soon!! Lots of love from Emi

    Best of luck for Saturday - I really hope your knee won't act up and force you to sit this one out! Cha-Cha is a fun dance, but I can imagine how tough it can be if your knee is sore... Go Team Audalie - I want you in the final together with teams Hali and Hartem... But no pressure... :) Natalie you are a wizzard with choreography and obviously a brilliant teacher too! Love to see you dance both as pro and with Audley. xx

    Oh man! Audley Harrison is looking horribly dangerous but look at Natalie Lowe, she has a pretty face and cute smile. I love you Natalie Lowe :-p
