Our Top 5 Strictly week 8 dances

Who topped Blackpool week for us? Find out in our countdown.

Natalie and Artem week 8

Last night’s Strictly Come Dancing was the best show of the series yet as the remaining 9 couples danced for survival at Blackpool.

The Tower Ballroom came to life with stunning routines, a few surprises and a fabulous group dance opening number. We’re really hurtling towards the final now and the competition is getting closer as the weeks go by.

As always we’ve compiled our Top 5 dances from the week. See who made the cut this week.

5. Abbey Clancy and Aljaz Skorjanec – Quickstep

The model is really fighting back since she ended up in the bottom two the other week. Abbey and Aljaz’s Blackpool-themed Quickstep was delightful to watch and we like it when she’s enjoying herself rather than pouting to the camera.

4. Ashley Taylor Dawson and Ola Jordan – Paso Doble

The Wild West theme may have been a little out of place but we can’t stop loving Ashley Taylor Dawson. His performance was strong and sexy with Ola getting inventive with the choreography. He still needs a show-stopper but we’re rooting for him.

3. Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Brendan Cole – Quickstep

The judges asked Sophie for personality and that’s what she brought in abundance last night. Sophie is the most under-rated of this year’s dancers for us and her partnership with Brendan is magical. One of her best dances yet.

2. Natalie Gumede and Artem Chigvintsev – Charleston

After missing a week due to illness, Natalie was back on fine form with Artem last night. She equalled Susanna’s score meaning she tied for highest score of the series so far. What a delightful Charleston from a talented dancer.

1. Susanna Reid and Kevin Clifton – Paso Doble

Susanna and Kevin scored the highest marks of the series with 39 out of 40 for their show-stopping Paso Doble. Traditional, beautiful and perfect in every way could this be the dance of the series so far? We think so.
