We’re less than a week away from the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 quarter-final and last night the 7 remaining couples fought to keep their place in the competition.
Last night’s live show saw the couples dance another routine and participate in Strictly’s first-ever Paso Doble-athon. It was a very close fought battle but at the end of the night Joe McFadden and his partner Katya Jones topped the leaderboard.
Susan Calman and her partner Kevin Clifton finished at the bottom of the leaderboard after coming last in the Paso Doble-athon and failing to get high scores from the judges.
Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez had a bad night receiving a lot of criticism for their Rumba with some of the judges saying they felt a lack of chemistry.
The leaderboard for the evening was:
Joe McFadden & Katya Jones – 44
Debbie McGee & Giovanni Pernice – 43
Alexandra Burke & Gorka Marquez – 39
Davood Ghadami & Nadiya Bychkova – 39
Mollie King & AJ Pritchard – 33
Gemma Atkinson & Aljaž Škorjanec – 28
Susan Calman & Kevin Clifton – 22
Strictly Come Dancing 2017 continues at 7.15pm tonight on BBC One. See all of the action from last night’s live show in our gallery below:
