Last night’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing aired from the historic Tower Ballroom in Blackpool, but as we reported earlier, though the evening’s performances were a big success, behind the scenes, thieves targeted the building’s dressing rooms and stole valuables worth thousands of pounds.

Strictly Come Dancing

Deborah Meaden and her professional partner Robin Windsor became the fourth couple to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2013 on Sunday evening.

In her exit interview on It Takes Two last night with Zoe Ball, Deborah said that she had the time of her life on the show as she got to learn a new skill, thanks to Robin, and she never thought she would enjoy it as much as she did. A teary Robin added that the pair were in “a very unsafe place” on the leader board on Saturday and it’s the time of the competition that’s notorious for giving contestants the bump who should not necessarily be going home.

Strictly Come Dancing: Deborah Meaden’s Viennese Waltz was much more “confident” this week

Strictly Come Dancing

Deborah Meaden and Robin Windsor danced the Vienesse Waltz to James Brown’s soulful ‘It’s a Man’s World’ on this evening’s show.

Last week, she struggled with the steps and she wasn’t learning them and in her VT Deborah said she agreed with Craig. This week, she wants to focus on being technically better with the Viennese Waltz. To help her get back into the mood, she went off to the board room to work on her business plan.”I just hope I can go out there and sell it to the audience and the judges,” Deborah added.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Deborah Meaden has been training with a broom stick to prepare her for this week’s Viennese Waltz!


Deborah Meaden and her dance partner Robin Windsor caused quite a bubbly stir on Saturday night with their clothes-ripping escapades as they danced the Jive to the Eurovision classic, Making Your Mind Up by Bucks Fizz.

However, with a few very obvious mistakes it came as no surprise that the judges weren’t very complimentary with Len commenting that they had plenty of fizz but that they needed to buck their feet up, Craig said that the kicks were very lame and Darcey wished them luck in getting better next week if they made it through the public vote.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Craig Revel Horwood says Abbey Clancy has promise, Vanessa Feltz has heart and the OTHER judges were too harsh on Fiona Fullerton!


After all the glitz and glamour from Saturday’s live Strictly Come Dancing, Craig Revel Horwood has revealed how he thinks each of the remaining female celebrities are doing in the competition so far.

So far this series we have almost seen a softer side to resident ballroom bad boy, Craig – his marks are still predictably tight, but his criticism has seemed less harsh so far, and he has even cracked a smile or two at the most unexpected of moments.

Deborah Meaden has admitted that she’s not at all surprised that romances are frequently born in the Strictly Come Dancing training rooms.

Over the years the BBC show has spawned numerous relationships that are less than platonic, from Kara Tointon & Artem Chigvintsev, to Brendan Cole and Natasha Kaplinsky, and the Dragons’ Den star can see how things would very naturally progress when partners are getting so up close and personal every day.
