Strictly Come Dancing

Natalie Gumede is most definitely a force to be reckoned with on the show and once again, the took to the dance floor with grace this evening to dance the Samba with her professional partner Artem Chigvintsev. They danced to Gypsy King’s ‘Bomboleo’

In her VT she said that she is thrilled to be on the dance floor and her back is finally on the mend! “The Samba should be really simple… but it’s not,” Natalie added. Artem came in dressed in a spanish flag to get Natalie in the spirit of the dance… it didn’t look like she had a lot of fun.

Last week, Natalie and Artem scored a total of 35 points, putting them joined top of the leaderboard along with Abbey Clancy and Susanna Reid. Despite having quite a bad back injury during the week, she still managed to come out and blow everyone away with her performance.

As always, Natalue looked dazzling this evening in her golden, rather short dress with a big pink ruffle on the back. She owned the dance floor with her sexy samba and Craig definitely can’t say anything about those hips!

Judges Comments

  • Len Goodman: “I was palpitating, perspiration! I loved that choreography, you danced it brilliantly well. Overall, that was great”.
  • Bruno Tonioli: “Hypnotic, exotic with a touch of the erotic! Those hips… I’m telling you! One thing I love is you extend your arms, I love seeing those things and it’s what makes dance exciting”.
  • Craig Revel Horwood: “You need to heighten your double bounce action, it was missing. Your elbows are too close to your body… your hips were fantastic though and your timing was brilliant. Amazing”.
  • Darcey Bussell: “Spain is your place, you have to do more of that. Great performance”.
