Kyran Bracken is up next this evening, and he has quite a bit to prove as he’s the bookies’ favourite to be in the bottom two this evening.
During last week’s ‘80s themed show, Kyran managed to win over Jason Gardiner, so he’s obviously doing something right as we know that isn’t an easy feat.
Ashley said that she loves how passionate he is every week, whilst Jason said that it was “lyrical and soft and passionate and romantic”.
Earlier today, Kyran tweeted that he was excited for tonight’s show, especially the showdown in the boys v girls dance.
“So week 7 is here… looking fwd to tonight especially the boys v girls number… think we are 4th on so if you fancy voting add 04… if not 😉 (sic)”.
Last Friday was the 30th anniversary of the Bolero routine, and reflecting on that Kyran said that he completely butchered the Bolero when he did it in his series “I looked like a bouncer,” he joked.
Nina went on to add that it’s amazing how Torvill and Dean haven’t changed the way that they work. The way they worked in the ‘80s is the same way that they’re still working today.
In his VT, Kyran said that he was convinced he was going to be in the skate-off last week and when he got through, he couldn’t believe it. There’s six champions left and he really doesn’t want to be the first champion to leave the competition. “Being a sportsman, I find myself criticising everything I do. But, If I get it right, I’m hoping I’ll get through”.
The pair danced to ‘Can’t Hold Us’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis this evening, and it certainly packed a punch. Going back to the technical/artistic score the judges keep talking about, it seemed like it had a good chunk of each and will possibly be one of his best scores to date, but there was a little fall.
In total, Kyran scored 33 points.
Ashley Roberts: You are coming out of your shell, and you possibly gave a bit too much. You had a few mistakes, but you’re coming out of your shell and I’m enjoying that.
Karen Barber: It was so challenging, you were fast over the ice, you were committed but there’s no room for mistakes.
Jason Gardiner: Kyran, I think you gave it so much that it got out of control. When you lose control like that, it unravels. It looks naff when you make those kinds of mistakes.
Nicky Slater: It was a 9.5 until the mistake. You attacked from the off – very difficult lifts, you see them in pro shows. You missed with the hands and the over the back lift wasn’t that good.
