It Takes Two: 10 things we learned during week two
What lessons can we draw from the pre-themed week It Takes Two?
1. James Jordan feels old! Aljaž Skorjanec is 23 years old and James has 12 years on him.
2. Craig Revel Horwood demonstrated a ‘good hand’. If you want to have a ‘good hand’ follow my summation: you want to make a hand crocodile and not an elephant (thumb pointing down as a trunk).
3. Sophie Ellis-Bextor almost got a 10 for her Charleston last weekend. If she had, it would have been the earliest in a series we’d seen the top score paddle and the second time a 10 would have been shown for a second dance. (Twitter pals remind me Louise Lytton got a 10 for her second dance…in week three, because of how the show was split then)
4. Julien Macdonald just wants to prove to the judges that he’d getting better and learning the dance – he spent 33.5 hours training for week two.
5. Karen Hardy thinks Brendan Cole is going for the ‘double crown’ and has a shot at becoming the first professional to win the show twice after Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s wonderful display last weekend.
6. Pasha Kovalev gave us all a lesson in shimmying and now we are all experts.
7. There is a move within the Rumba called the ‘sliding door’…
8. Apparently you can tame a dragon – as Robin Windsor firmly has the upper hand with his firey partner Deborah Meaden.
9. Lionel Blair loves Natalie Gumede (despite not being able to remember her name), Abbey Clancy and Susanna Reid.
10. Love Week is going to take theme overload to a whole new level. Help.
Strictly Come Dancing is on BBC1 at 6.30pm tomorrow
