Who’s for the chop? It’s finally time for the eliminations… Maybe we’re just meanies, but Strictly doesn’t work without eliminations – otherwise we’d still be on series one watching, say, Christopher Parker paso doble round the dance floor while Natasha Kaplinsky looked on in horror.

So, as fun as last week was, we’re pleased to have arrived at the competitive part of the show, where Craig’s shockingly low scores will finally have consequences. Those who danced Latin last week will take on a ballroom number and vice versa, as the likes of Judge Rinder and Louise Redknapp hope to secure your votes. Nobody wants to go out first, so we’re expecting some sizzling routines. Bring it on!
