But whoever is bottom of the leaderboard in the semi-final always goes, it's been like that since Series 1.

I hope this is true, if she's against Chico he'll go though, if she's against Jorgie though Jorgie has to get that headbanger right.

Why couldn't the twist have been the skater at the bottom goes home and ITV take a hit on the revenue (which nowadays isn't as big a deal as it once was anyway).

One thing about the scoring but I wouldn't be surprised at all if the app voting becomes a 4th score next year as from the scores they've revealed this year they do seem to be pretty much where they should be rather than marking people really high or really low.

Jorgie is against Chico in the skate off, not only does she have to get the headbanger right, but she also has to win over the judges, against him.

Blimey anniemay, why didn't you join in the DOI threads earlier? That is EXACTLY what the majority of people on here think

And btw, how many times did they mention Seb tonight? They went on and on and on!

Jennifer to go surely?

To be fair, she's the biggest improvement of the series.

If Dan had let go of her in the early stages she could've been right up there with Jorgie but HE was the one who didn't have confidence in her in the beginning, then, when she was up against it, she pulled it out of the bag and started to really skate. I actually think Dan held her back

Does no one else think Jorgie is as good, if not better than Matt?

Although Jen has inproved no end, I think it is time for her to go tonight.  I like Chico and Jorgie and although I'm no fan of Matthew, he deserves to be in that final. It will be a travesty if Jen goes through

I do Alex think the skills are on a par but Jorgie finishes off better and looks smoother to me tonight in skills test I though she edged it

Most of Dan's partners that I can recall have done the clingng-on-for-dear-life trick.  I agree with Alex that Jen's improved in the past few weeks, but she's still a long way from having the speed, flow or content of the others in her routines.  That could be laid at T&D's door, I suppose  -they're ultimately responsible for what the celebs are given to do.

I  thought she looked more comfortable in the skills test too - Matt was so concentrated he looked like a man heading for the firing squad at the start, while Jorgie managed to look more relaxed.

Not so sure that's the case with Dan. He's very tight with Karen, I wonder if he has a massive say in his routines and T&D trust him to choreograph the majority of his skates? A lot of his 'signature' moves appear in his routines every year

I think it is because unlike most of the pros Dan was not a competitive skater or trained pairs skater - he attained gold medal standard and joined Hot Ice - he has partnered loads in that show so is experienced but do not think he has the range of say Matt, Andrei, Fred who took part in competitions with partners for years

I think the stuff Dan does is the stuff he is used to performing and have barely changed since first seires with Gaynor
