It’s week three of Strictly Come Dancing 2010 – and the action was hotting up on the dancefloor as the contestants performed either a rumba or a quickstep
Kara Tointon, in a lemon-coloured lace trimmed dress, kicked off the show with a lively quickstep
Felicity Kendal, on second, took the honours for most improved performance this week, with a rumba that delighted the panel
Patsy Kensit and dance partner Robin Windsor disappointed the judges with their quickstep and finished near the bottom of the scoreboard
Someone’s got to come last – and Paul Daniels found himself bottom of the heap this week with just 16 points, following his rumba with Ola Jordan
We’re not quite sure what Paul was doing here but it doesn’t look much like a rumba to us!
Matt Baker – one of the front-runners in the competition – turned in another assured performance with his quickstep
Gavin Henson and Katya Virshilas performed a rumba but once again found themslves in the lower half of the scoreboard
Scott Maslen and Natalie Lowe had great fun with their jungle themed quickstep – an the judges loved it too
Michelle Williams donned a flowing dress and sparkly headband for her rumba with Brendan Cole
Peter Shilton also showed improvement with his quickstep, so much so that Len Goodman vowed to ‘show my bum in Tesco if the footballer was once again in the bottom two
The judges were a little disappointed with Jimi Mistry and Flavia Cacace’s rumba, with Len Goodman calling it ‘not so much erotic as neurotic’
Anne Widdecombe still finished near the bottom of the judges’ scoreboard – but her quickstep was a considerable improvement on last week’s routine
Saving the best till last: Pamela Stephenson and James Jordan ended the Saturday show with a rumba which scored the highest marks of the series so far – 35 out of 40!
When it came to Sunday night, Paul Daniels and Michelle Williams found themselves in the bottom two….
….but in the end it was Paul and Ola Jordan who became the second couple to leave the competition
It was the first time that either pair had been in the bottom two this series – but Paul’s rumba proved to be neither a hit with judges nor voters
The magician said he had had a “fantastic” time on the show. And now twelve couples remain….
