Lynda foxtrots out of Strictly!

They danced the Foxtrot and scored 8 + 9 + 8 + 8 = 33.
Len said, “Many of the qualities that we look for in a Foxtrot we just saw in your dance. That was a very well accomplished Foxtrot and well done!”
Bruno said, “Zoe, this was a Foxtrot glistening with glamour.”
Craig said, “Timing was spot-on, beautiful pivots. You need to extend your top line further away from James, but gorgeous.”

The second couple to dance was presenter Chris Hollins and Ola Jordan. They danced the Salsa and scored 5 + 6 + 7 + 7 = 25.
Len said, “The parts you did in hold, were ok you kept the flavour of the dance and it was good.”
Bruno said, “You were a bit like Bob-the-builder. Your timing wasn’t too bad.”

The third couple to dance was actor Lynda Bellingham and Darren Bennett. They danced the Foxtrot and scored 5 + 7 + 6 + 6 = 24.
Alisha said, “It was a pleasant dance you coped with Darren’s choreography really well.”
Craig said, “For me it was a little bit too straight. There was no shape of the top line. There was no flow either, too safe actually.” For which Lynda replied, “you should see me nude in the theatre.”

The next couple to dance was actor Ali Bastian and partner Brian Fortuna. They danced the Salsa and scored 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 32
Alisha said, “Sexy Ali very very sexy. Great control great rhythm throughout your body. Brian, that choreography was fantastic. Occasionally you were a little bit stiff.”
Len said, “Clean, fast but for me sometimes a little bit hectic. But good job.”

The couple to dance next was model and entrepreneur Jo Wood and Brendan Cole. They danced the foxtrot and scored 4 + 6 + 5 + 5 = 20.
Bruno said, “Brendon you need a price for determination.”
Craig said, “I think it is your personal best to date.”

The couple to dance next was actor Natalie Cassidy and partner Vincent Simone. They danced the Salsa and scored 7 + 8 + 7 + 7 = 29.
Craig said, “You certainly came out and delivered it was very very good. It was like a dance of two halves, the bottom and top were not together.”

The next couple to dance was boxer Joe Calzaghe and Kristina Rihanoff. They danced the Foxtrot and scored 3 + 6 + 6 + 5 = 20.
Len said, “Joe improvement, more confidence. You don’t dance for a living do you? It was your best dance ever.”
Craig said, “For me there was no sign of improvement.”

Next couple to dance was actor Laila Rouass and dance partner Anton Du Beke. They danced the Foxtrot and scored 8 + 9 + 9 + 8 = 34.
Alisha said, “Best Foxtrot of the night so far. Lovely movement around the floor, good body contact.”
Craig said, “Classy confident and wonderful to watch.”

The next couple to dance was actor Ricky Whittle and partner Natalie Lowe. They danced the Salsa scored 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 32.
Bruno said, “It was Ricky Martin, your hips were moving like a machine gun.”
Len said, “To be honest I was not that keen on back flips. Over all you’re a good dancer and I really enjoyed it.”

The next couple to dance was actor Craig Kelly and Flavia Cacace. They danced the Foxtrot and scored 5 + 7 + 6 + 6 = 24.
Craig said, “Your frame is a complete disaster. Your head was looking down most of the time. For me not great!”
Bruno said, “I think Len is absolutely right. This is the hardest dance, but good effort.”

The couple to dance next was athlete Jade Johnson and partner Ian Waite. They danced the Salsa and scored 7 + 7 + 8 + 7 = 29.
Alisha said,“You can move your body. Definitely the best-dressed couple I have to say. You captured the Salsa move.”

The next couple to dance was actor Ricky Groves and Erin Boag. They danced the Foxtrot and scored 6 + 8 + 7 + 7 =28.
Len said, “This is such a tough dance. People don’t really know how tough it is, well done.”

The last couple to dance was cricketer Phil Tuffnell and Katya Virshillas. They danced the Salsa and scored 4 + 7 + 6 + 7 = 24.
Bruno said, “I cannot quite believe you can shake your bum so enthusiastically, considering the circumstances you did really well.”

After the couples had danced there was a professional tap dancing followed by a dance from the professional dancers of the show. There was also a performance from a 13 year old girl, Miss Dion Bromfield, and her god mother Amy Winehouse. To Dion’s singing there was a professional dance from Matthew Cutler and dance partner Aliona Vilani.

The two couples left in the dance off were Lynda Bellingham and partner Darren Bennett and Craig Kelly and partner Flavia Cacace. Judges Craig and Alisha saved Lynda and Darren, but the other two judges Bruno and Len saved Craig and Flavia. And as Len, the head judge has the casting vote, Craig and Flavia were through to next week, and sadly Lynda Bellingham and Darren Bennett were out of the competition.
