Ha ha! Maybe he is trying to "help" Oksana win??? Or maybe he is a better dancer than choreographer? I have certainly seen better salsa routines on Strictly. He is certainly a lovely salsa dancer - there is a really good clip of him dancing salsa socially at the world championships in 2007 which really shows how you don not need to travel all across the floor to make salsa look good. I am not sure I have the tech know how to post it here. Can you sort it for me, Bren?

My fav dances of the night were
Louise/Kev
Ed/Katja
Claudia/AJ--my fav, even liked the music!!
Ore/Joanne

I reckon next to go could be Greg, as Ed I think still entertaining for the mo, including me, and I love how Judge Rinder enjoying it still.

Salsa is not suited to this type of show - it is a social dance and meant to be danced in crowded clubs where the couples stay close to each other and Therefore sensual body movement & "armography" are the key features. Lifts would be positively dangerous in such circumstances and there is no space to gallop all over the floor. What you tend to see on Strictly are show dances rather than authentic salsa. End of lecture!!

Whilst I agree that Ed is the worst dancer I do think Katya is doing a brilliant job of teaching him, giving him appropriate choreography - both for him and to suit the dance - AND he is improving, so all credit to them. They are what this show should really be about.

Does anyone know whether Laura wears a hearing aid? I have noticed a couple of times something in her left ear. At first I assumed it was something to do with the mikes/sound tech etc, but haven't noticed anyone else wearing the same.

Agree with you there Maisie. Everyone did well... even Ed.

I really liked Danny's Jive, both VW and both QS. Loved Loiuse's AT.

Voted Daisy. Hoping Ore & Louise will be safe without a vote.

Well, that was better than last week! Enjoyed most of them - Laura the least. Tess in that jumpsuit really put me off though!! Scoring a bit OTT for some but nothing new there. Hope Laura in dance off with Ed.

AT one of my favourite dances, and I thought Louise did well. I voted for Louise & Ore (I admit to being a Clifton fan) I have a feeling the public will keep Ed in `til Blackpool.

Here now but can't get it on i-player yet Have to leave the house while village bonfire on as dogs are terrified of the fireworks. We drive out a few miles & watch from afar, with a flask of tea & cake.
