And breathe. After two weeks of themed madness (UKTN 100 and Halloween), thank goodness things are back to normal in the Strictly Ballroom. The focus should be back on the dancing – and it’s an interesting week, with each couple doing a different style, from Charleston and jive to salsa and Argentine tango.
Interesting, but maybe not very fair, because it becomes a kind of lottery: do the wrong dance in the wrong week and you’re toast. For example, Ellie Taylor, who topped the leaderboard with her entertaining Couple’s Choice last week, could be in trouble tonight with the debunking rumba, and it could be another dance-off trip for Fleur East or Molly Rainford. unless they can. really sell their slow dances: waltz and foxtrot respectively.
But Kym Marsh has a good chance of stealing the show with an Argentine tango on the theme of John Powell — immortalized by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in the film Mr & Mrs Smith, and in Strictly by Jason Donovan and Kristina Rihanoff in season nine. . And it could be a strong outing for Helen Skelton with the jive; she did well with her equally energetic Blue Peter Charleston.
Or will it be another triumphant evening for Tony Adams? He impressed the judges with the quality of his quickstep last week, but it will definitely be more of a comedic attempt with a salsa to Pitbull’s I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) – intentional or not. Join the latest ballroom action tonight at 7pm on UKTN One.
