I'm finding Aston really irritating too.

Alexandra was great but you don't win this show if you peak too early.

Am I the only one who dislikes these over the top costumes on theme weeks?

OK, the Buzz and Jessie outfits were really well made, but they looked so daft dancing in them. Same for Alijaz in that bear/mouse outfit.

The outfits were pretty daft yeah.

Revd Richard was more fun that Simon, he should've gone instead!

Aston's routine was pretty much the same as last week's without the tricks.

Gemma, Davood and Jonnie all upped their game this week.

I love this show. All this glitter, over the top costumes and the brilliant dances.

OMG YES! :o :D 8-)

Such a shame this was a week 2 dance as for me it had the quality of a live final dance. Their synchronisation was incredible.

Week 4, but I see what you mean. I'm sure she can match it.

Lovely night again.

Alexandra should have gotten more points though.

And I really missed Bruno.

I think they're being careful not to keep marking the same couples high, otherwise it makes it less of competition. Still, 24/30 across three judges is still a high score - it just looked awful on the leaderboard as she was on the second half!

Thankfully Brian's out, Simon or Ruth next please.

I wished Simon would have gone.

And Anton is someone I ask myself of why he is even there.
He's nowhere near as good as the other proffesional dancers when it comes to latin.

She was really good. According to the judges, they had never seen a celebrity dance a tango like a professional.
Craig even got down on his knees to bow for her.

Loved Tracey being there!

Ruth and Anton :lol:

Alexandra was amazing, it was her second best dance for me... I just want her to dial down her reactions a bit.

Joe was also brilliant! He's been quite the surprise the last few weeks.

I don't think Debbie deserved a ten, it was hardly a show-stopping routine and she looked almost too rigid.

I don’t find Alexandra very likeable to be honest, but she’s a hell of a dancer. Best of the night, Debbie didn’t deserve 40.

Davood really impressed me, one of the highlights of the series so far.

Ruth and Anton don't deserve to still be there.
How can people give Ruth more votes over Aston???????????????

Aston should have been in the final with Alexandra.

Technically yes, but Aston's performances never connected with me. Not that Ruth's do but I'm not surprised after that comedy fall that she stayed.

Aston did not deserve to go but he had a really bad week I guess. I expected him to be in the final with Debbie and Alexandra.

Debbie did not deserve that 40. I don't understand why they don't nitpick her as much as they do Alexandra and Aston.
Rest In Peace Lilly!

Agree with the crowd.. Debbie's was a 36 at very, very best. Probably somewhere in the 32-36 range. For Craig of ALL the dances ever to bow to it was absurd.

It wasn't even in the top three dances of the night - Alexandra (I agree, one of her very best alongside jive and Paso), Joe and Davood were better.

Aston - better dancer than Mollie in general, not a better dancer than Mollie this week. Correct Dance Off result. I like it in shows like this and Bake Off where the rules are upheld and it's not an X Factor esque free for all.

Alexandra deserved 40 this week if we compare it to Debbie last week.

I hope Mollie or Ruth go. They're both pretty hopeless.
