sometimes people just forget to vote for a particular person. it happened with Abby and she hasn't been in the dance-off since.
i didn't feel Len's comments were forced or contrived..he gets a bit cranky from time to time. but i also do not feel there was anything incorrect about anything that he said. he just might not have said it on another week.
i do not find anything weird about tess and claudia. i think they are great..such a relief not to have bruce.
Susanna and Kevin seemed shocked so survive and rightly so. She obviously is getting votes (OK last big admission, I voted for her!). However I think she needs to get back to earlier form with two to go this week.
bit disappointed with the result. not at the decision, because I think that Patrick was marginally better than Ashley (i thought this was his best dance, though) but because I thought susannah should have been in the dance-off, for three reasons: 1. her dance was the worst, 2. i do not like her, and 3. she whined a lot when criticized.
however, it does demonstrate that she has a lot of public support. i think that a lot of people who watch strictly also watch breakfast (hence chris hollins winning despite only being third or fourth best).
that said, ashley was not going to win and will probably be happy to get back to his wife and bairn.
wasn't Len in a cranky mood! i was very excited by it all i liked his pointed remarks about natalie's dance (he justifiably gets a bee in his bonnet about artem playing fast and loose with the dance content) and his outburst at the end of the results show. nice to have a bit of draaaaaahmmaaaaaa.
other than that i thought abby's waltz was lovely and nicely choreographed, and sophie was...fine.
