I'd like to apologise to the four or five regular commenters on the blog for not being here last week - I wasn't feeling very well and I'd forgotten my password to here - I'm fine now, although I've now learned to always read the sell-by-date on fish!

We're on - and here comes Daly, who looks like she's wearing an apron (let's hope she's considering a career change to Bake Off when it moves next year) and Winklepicker - oh get on, as I seem to say every week - we all know the rules after 14 odd years!

Daisy & Aljaž:-
She looks like she's had a few too many in that get-up - the Sarmba (?) looked quite good though, if a bit messy.
Ooh, Old Ma Berry in the audience - I assume she hasn't left the Beeb then?

Winklepicker's upstairs antics get less funny every week - they were never all that in the first place! Can she join Daly in Bake Off as well?

Greg & Natalie:-
Another great couple - well she's brilliant at least. He made an effort but it was as stiff as a starched collar and it wasn't exactly the most romantic Argentine Tango I've ever seen - it was an Argentine Tango, right? I struggle to tell more and more these days - either I'm getting older or the pros are putting less and less 'dance content' in their routines - I think it's the last one!

Judge Robert & Oksana:-
I didn't catch their dance as it was my turn to take out the bin - I decided to make the time worthwhile by bringing through a bottle of red on the way back! Well, the stooges obviously liked it - I'll have to see what you all said about it.

Ore & Joanne:-
I have no clue why they ended up in the dunce off last week - I'd *much* rather Danny had been there with the one who went home (I've forgotten who it was already - shows how much of an impression they made!) but I suppose the 'Hollyoaks' fans were out in full force!
Wow - I loved this a lot - no thanks to the music - and I may vote for them more than once!

Ed & Katya:-
Hells bells - I thought that 'Ganga Style' fad was done and forgotten about! No doubt if this is 'entertaining' enough it'll start all over again. To be fair, I did feel a bit sorry for old Ed during the Salsa (I use the term loosely) - the choreography didn't exactly discourage people from laughing at him - which the wife did - a lot!

Sorry to ruin the mood but I'm beginning to find it a bit ludicrous - I don't know if she picked the song or TPTB did but it certainly wasn't a Salsa - whoever created the great dance will be turning in their graves!

Danny & Oti:-
The Argentine Tango - I'm sure it'll be excellent, passionate and the dance of the night, whatever he does!
I don't care what steps he was doing, it looked too fast and frantic - Louise's last week was much better for me!
Wow, the stooges aren't gushing that much - I thought they'd love it - wait a minute, normality has resumed - Old Pa Goodman and Bruno award it with '10's and praise it to the skies!

Louise & Karen:-
I don't want to sound like Bruce Forsyth but this pair are my new favourites - and this was so good that me and the wife got up and had a go - she tried to get me to do it for Ed Balls' Salsa but I said I'd only do it if I got to drink the remains of the red and then she gave up!
Shut up Dreary, you nitpicking ninny!

Well that's that then - I'll be back later to see who got booted out.

I knew I'd missed someone out - I suppose all I can say now is that Claudia was very good!

Thanks Andrew. Missed your sparkling wit last week.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
