I can't help but wonder if Bruno has been told to act like a 'professional' Italian. A few series ago I don't remember him being anywhere near as hyper as he has been these last couple of series.


No that's what we're all like round our Christmas table.

it's all your faults - I have now started watching the blessed show much to the disgust of him indoors.

Much as I appreciated the entertainment value it was only right that Widdy went out this week, although I did think it was a close thing between her and Gavin who looks to me as though he has a broomstick shoved down his back he is so wooden.

Can't choose between Matt, Pam or that skinny woman whose name I don't remember.

I liked Pamela at the start but she is now,in my view,being overmarked....Not a fan of the rumba but the one that Kara performed last night, I thought,was stunning....Liked both Matt and Scott's dances but I think Kara is the one to beat

My choices for the final would be Kara, Matt and Scott but I think Pamela will probably edge out one of the boys ...Scott probably.

It's a shame Scott has gone. I would rather he'd got through than Pamela. But I'm pleased Matt and Kara are through. I think Kara should win it.

I'm relieved Scott has gone - he's lost so much weight and aged so much during the past few weeks. He was looking like a prime candidate to play Steptoe - the elder.

He's been working two jobs with East Enders and Strictly and when they did a reprise of his time on Strictly it was clear that he was much better earlier on than he has been for the last 2 or 3 weeks.

My money's on Kara; I really don't see what all the fuss about Pamela has been based on. She's an OK dancer, but only that. I think Matt takes it all a bit too seriously.

Looking forward to next week. There's been some good dancers on this series - even Gavin improved.

having only got into it over the last couple of weeks have to say I thought Scott would edge it over Matt who I think has gone off the boil. I suppose I would like Pam to win as she is "the oldie" but really Kara has been the best.

Did anyone see Lance Ellington duetting with Bruce Forsyth on 'Story Of the Three Bears' on the results show?

I remember his dad Ray Ellington singing this on the Parkinson show's Goons special!

Well! how underwhelming were those 'show' dances?... ..I haven't voted all the way through but I have tonight and my 15p was spent on Kara, mainly because of Craig being awkward and not giving her a ten.....she deserved a ten for that rumba ..miserable so and so that he is... Evil or Very Mad

I think Matt will go out first ...his 'show' dance barely resembled a dance .....

Wrong!!... Smile

Kara's a worthy winner in my eyes..so lovely and graceful to watch and seems a genuinely nice person.

Group dance was good fun.

I know, I feel guilty. Thanks to my support for Ann the BT share price has shot up. I'm wondering if that wasn't a waste of money on my part!

Spot on Becky.. Kara was indeed a worthy winner and yes, she should have been awarded four 10s.. but a real insult was the 7 from Len on the American Smooth.. surely that was unfair.
Just a small point on the simply beautiful performance from Kara to "Samba Pa Ti", I just wish she'd chosen to have her lovely hair down as last week.. it really added to the visual effect imo.. but fabulous just the same. Yes, she deserved to win and has captured a few hearts in the process.
The softy in me was also satisfied to see Artem give her a proper kiss at last.. Embarassed

For the first time in many a year I didn't really mind who won. I had liked Matt from week one, so was glad he made the final. He had the potential to be a terriffic dancer but imo Aliona's choreography just didn't do him justice.

Kara was a very worthy winner and it would have been quite a shock if she had not won it really. Len's 7 was very harsh, but I think he had a point. It had been pointed out when they danced the American Smooth the first time that there was not enough of the dance danced in hold. Some tweeking of the choreography could have evened the balence of the dance up and solved that problem.

Excellent track Becks.. either Labi or Madness, both are superb..

Our carpenter here is all gooey over Kara.. Laughing she's certainly very nice but Flavia is sill my favourite! Razz I think I'm right in saying Kara and Artem will be an item now the contest is over.. fairytale stuff..

Yes, I'm not a great fan of the 'Croydon Facelift' style. It makes my head ache just thinking of it.

She's just so natural, no airs and graces. I think she's done herself a lot of good being on this show, both personally and professionally. And a brilliant dancer.

I think Kara is more "lovely" and "elegant" rather than sexy like Flavia.
Did you see she's hurt her arm during one of the dances on Saturday?

I have to say that, on the occasions that I looked in (once the great Ann Widdecombe was unjustly and outrageously voted off I lost interest, to be honest) I did find Kara to be rather enjoyable to look at. I don't know the first thing about dancing (in common with many of those who voted!) but hey........ Razz
