Well, Strictly Come Dancing 2016 hasn’t been short of drama has it? Will Young’s buggered off and then Brendan Cole (spoiler alert) had to step aside for week five due to a lung infection. Anastacia didn’t dance on her tod though, Gorka Marquez stepped in. Trooper.

So what of week five and the 11 remaining couples? After scoring a whopping 39 for his flicktastic Jive last week, Ore Oduba and partner Joanne Clifton turned their attention to the Waltz.
There was a Jives in the mix, courtesy of Judge Rinder (Laura Whitmore couldn’t do hers as she’s injured her ankle); Rumbas were danced by Louise Redknapp and Danny Mac; Claudia Fragapane did the Samba; Greg Rutherford had a crack at the Cha Cha Cha; after last week’s top display, Lesley Joseph strutted her stuff with the Tango; Ed Balls  went for the American Smooth; and Daisy Lowe was Charleston bound.

Strictly super fan, Ashley Davies was live blogging every breath, step and move they made. If you’re watching on catch up, why not retrospectively join her?
