Recap: Strictly Come Dancing Live blog: Week 8

No-one wants to be the one to leave the week before Blackpool. We assembled a live blog pairing to be proud of in the form of Jen Offord and Camilla King for the all important week eight of Strictly Come Dancing.

So, last week the sun set on weather guru Carol Kirkwood’s once around the Strictly dancefloor as the American Smooth she performed with Pasha failed to impress the judges enough.

Mind you, she was shockingly up against Eastenders’ Kellie Bright and Kevin, who found themselves in the dance off – Kevin for the first time in forever, to quote Anna from Frozen – despite a more than decent Waltz. There’s just no accounting for taste is there?

Anyway, all that was forgotten as everyone gave their best footwork and butt-cheek shimmies in the hope of securing a place on the Blackpool boogie bill.

This week we were treated to the Quickstep, Charleston, Tango, Samba, Foxtrot, Rumba and Viennese Waltz, performed to a melting pot soundtrack featuring The Pretenders, music from Chicago, James Bay, Erasure, Sam Smith, The Jam, Shirley Bassey, Cilla Black and the Fresh Prince.

Camilla King and Jen Offord blogged all the dancefloor drama as it happened.
