This evening sees the second live show of the current series of Strictly Come Dancing in which the remaining nine contestants take to the dance floor for the first time.
Tonight, Former Bond girl Fiona Fullerton and her professional partner Anton Du Beke danced the Tango to A View To Kill by Duran Duran. They performed their Tango well and it was “as sharp as a Lemon tart”, according to Len.
In her VT, Fiona said: “This has taken me back to an era when I was an actress, it was 17 years and I changed career… My dreams came true when I was partnered up with Anton… I’m very hard on myself if I don’t get something right, it’s that self-doubt I have to eradicate”.
“It will be fabulous fun and I may even dancer in December,” Anton joked.
Fiona Fullerton revealed earlier this week that she has been struggling in rehearsals due to being a tad unfit! She said her body and joins have been aching like mad! But not all is lost as Fiona also added that she’s really enjoying her time on the show so far… and we know she’s a HUGE Strictly superfan.
Bruno Tonioli said: “I like the role playing, the vampish remote. I tell you, you played it very well. I could really see Anton placing you as you lost it. Your feet went into a messy state at times. It started well.”.
Len Goodman added: “There were a couple of incidents, but the content was amazing. There was so much going on Fiona – you were as sharp as a Lemon tart.”.
Darcy Bussell told the pair: “I was impressed as there was so much content… you were dancing! There were a couple of mistakes… the only thing letting you down is your top line.”.
“It’s lovely to see Anton dancing this series. It was a little rough around the edges. Make sure your left palm is facing the floor. It’s great he has a partner that can put one foot in front of the other,” added Craig Revel Horwood.
Speaking about her first dance of the series, Fiona told Tess Daly: “It is surreal, it is like I have walked inside a television set! It’s amazing!”.
In total, Fiona and Anton scored 24 with a 5 from Craig Revel Horwood, a 6 from Darcey Bussell, a 7 from Len Goodman and a 6 from Bruno Toniloi.
This week, no couples will be leaving the competition. The judges scores will be carried across to next week’s show in which two celebrity couples will be given the boot.
Strictly Come Dancing continues next Saturday on BBC One/HD.
