Duh-duh-duh… The first results show. And there was Jamelia in the bottom two. What a turn up for the blooming books. And yet… Her limbs were wayward, her footwork too loose and her posture all nervy. Meanwhile, Iwan’s powerful pelvic thrusts were more “murderous” than Mmm-mm, according to the sometime viciously-bitchy Bruno. It was the former Olympics-y man who eventually sashayed, – or rather, thudded – into the sunset, however. And neither the judges nor his bruised-footed partner Ola look too upset about it.
As for the Saturday night show, well there were a helluva lot of fours going on. And everybody seemed a bit rubbish for ages, if we’re honest. We’ve already mentioned Jamelia. Brendan hoisted a rather stiff-looking Kirsty around like she was a sideboard that needed shifting into the next room. Anthony was less go-go-go and more no-no-no. Georgianni lost their fizz. And even Jay – who made the judges froth – is still wearing the look of a man who doesn’t have enough credit on his Oyster card.
Thank goodness for an upturn in skillz in the second half of the show. Kellie and Kevin are looking likes ones to watch, as are dark horses and unexpected “It” couple Katie and Anton. Everyone loves an underdog. And a dark horse. Anita was slick. Peter once again ruled the roost, like a magenta-clad cockerel. And Helen did a scary sex look during her Cha Cha while shaking her tassel-clad hips. Other mentions go to grandfolk’s faves – Daniel, Carol and Jeremy. All rubbish but charming enough to be a bit lovable.
Until next week!
