Strictly Come Dancing’s head decide shares her week three insights…

October 07, 2019 – 12:13 BST

It was one other eventful evening on Sunday, with Anneka and Kevin waving goodbye to their probabilities of Strictly victory after three weeks, some low scores, and one spectacular gown. As ever, HELLO! columnist Shirley Ballas  has been readily available to share her opinions and insights into the whole lot that went on, each on-display and behind-the-scenes.

This week, that is meant spills, slips, and a wardrobe malfunction that would have turned out very badly! But the present should go on, and this is what the pinnacle decide needed to say about all of it… 

Shirley’s column

I believe the fitting individual went. I am unsure Anneka felt like that, although. She appeared dissatisfied however it was the fitting consequence for positive. It might need regarded like we have been laughing at her routine on Saturday, however that is not what occurred. Just earlier than she got here out, I slipped off the cushion on my chair and fell to the left, my hand landed the place it in all probability should not have and Bruno needed to push me again into my seat. I simply obtained again into place in time, so we have been laughing about that when Anneka got here out.

I believe David thought he was going to go away, you can inform by the look on his face, however all 4 of us saved him. I might prefer to suppose he will not be within the dance-off each time. He did make some strides this week for positive, his persona began to shine via. He did not fairly have sufficient of an American-style Viennese waltz in there however what I did see reveals promise. His body is getting higher and the most important factor of all is that he is beginning to get in contact together with his internal emotion. Once he does that, then he can contact the general public and whenever you contact them, they will vote for you. Magic Mike is such an entertainer and that is endearing to the general public. His dance was mad as a hatter however he is entertaining and the way in which he places himself ahead is simply second to none. I used to be a bit dissatisfied with Karim, although. I did not suppose it had sufficient Samba content material and I anticipated much more from him.

I stand by the ten I gave to Kelvin as a result of it was a Charleston quantity the place something goes and he danced it exquisitely, it was related and collectively. That doesn’t suggest he’ll get a ten subsequent week. If he will get the Tango he is likely to be again right down to a six. But his quantity was completely off the charts for week three, it was superb and I wasn’t the one one who gave him a ten, Bruno did as effectively. The others gave him a 9 so we’re inside a mark of one another. That’s why I say it is by no means too early for a ten from Shirley, as a result of he deserves that. I imply, what newbie do you see dance like that in week three?

On a private be aware, I’ve discovered Michelle actually useful and inspiring this week. She shared with me that she’s had her breast implants taken out and as I’m about to have mine eliminated, she gave me some details about docs and issues I ought to pay attention to. She’s been an amazing assist at a time that is a bit nerve-wracking for me. She was simply pretty.

The minute Craig made the remark about [Anton wearing false teeth], Motsi and I nudged one another beneath the desk and beneath my breath I mentioned to Motsi, ‘They’re his personal enamel!’ Then Bruno picked up on it and everybody fell about laughing. But I believe Craig was very embarrassed and he could not apologise sufficient. It was extraordinarily humorous as a result of Anton has obtained an amazing smile and Craig’s been wanting at it for 15 years so how the hell did he make that mistake?! I did not see them afterwards however it would not shock me if Craig had apologised.

Dianne actually had a nasty fall on her head earlier this week and that is one thing that would break your neck or provide you with a concussion. I believe she was simply lucky as to the way in which she landed. She was dazed and dazzled however there wasn’t any lengthy-time period harm and she definitely got here again on hearth giving it her all as a result of that quantity was beautiful as effectively. Katya slipped a few instances however she’s obtained a depraved sense of humour so she could have mentioned that she did it on objective as a joke.

It’s not all plain crusing behind the scenes. Sometimes outfits do not work, hair items fall out or a heel in your shoe breaks. On Saturday, it was my zip. I had this stunning bespoke gown made by a girl known as Jennifer Claire. When I attempted it on with my dresser Alexandra we had an issue with the zip, however the designer did not wish to put a heavier zip in a chiffon gown. So once we got here to prepare, Alex pulled the zip and it ripped – however we solely had seven minutes for me to get downstairs and be able to go. We needed to discover the needle and cotton however Alexandra was feeling nervous and jittery and could not sew it quick sufficient. The director was shouting, ‘Seven minutes, six minutes…” and we needed to get the director to shout for 3 or 4 women to come back up from wardrobe and attempt to sew this gown. They did it whereas I used to be operating down and I made it by the pores and skin of my enamel, however stay TV waits for no person!

We had one other incident at one level once they have been altering the set throughout a VT. Bruno went to get a drink of water and the highest fell off – water went throughout him, all the chair throughout my gown. People have been dashing up, attempting to get everybody’s chair in the fitting place, it was a catastrophe!

It’s not solely the judges who’ve behind the scenes wobbles. David will get very nervous, however you have obtained to have the ability to management your nerves. Saffron appears to be like cool as a cucumber throughout the entire day. For a non-dancer, she actually manages to maintain her feelings in test. I believe Catherine upped her sport utterly, she did remarkably effectively together with her Rumba. Johannes does an incredible job and he is so appreciative when he will get via or whenever you give him a praise, he really tears up and will get very moved. I did suppose the chemistry of the week belonged to Alex and Neil and they are also fairly constant which is an efficient place to be.

It’s too early to inform who may win as a result of this is not solely about dancing, it is about whether or not the viewers can join at house, it is about whether or not you’ve got the stamina: it is nearly like dwelling together with your associate for 3 months. How will your endurance be? How do you decide up the steps? Don’t neglect some weeks they are going to have two dances or group dances and they obtained to study extra issues. We’re nonetheless within the child levels of the present but…
