This evening, Abbey Clancy and her professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec took to the dancefloor back on Estree ground this evening after last week’s eventful trip to Blackpool. The pair danced the Paso Doble to You Got The Love by Florence and the Machine.

“To get three 10s last week, I was over the moon. I’m shocked how much I love Strictly… I’m obsessed,” Abbey said in her VT. Aljaz set her some homework that when she is at home she has to do her fierce Paso walk.

Last week, Abbey and Aljaz scored a huge 37 points with their seaside themed Quickstep. Darcey said that it showed us all how she can handle quick moves and Bruno Added that the only refreshment she deserved after that dance was some Champagne.

Judges Comments

  • Craig Revel Horwood: “I thought your free arm was a little loose at times, little bit more body tension and resistance in it would have been great, but, I loved the dance”.
  • Darcey Bussell: “Well, that was a very difficult Paso. Aljaz you gave her a lot to think about, but I would have liked to have seen a stronger woman from you. I just wanted a bit more, something different and more dramatic”.
  • Len Goodman: “I liked the shapes and the choreography. For me, on occasion you lost control. But, there you are – it is what it is but I would have liked to have seen it a little cleaner”.
  • Bruno Tonioli: “Some of the things you did tonight from a non-dancer were incredibly beautiful. You were really working incredibly hard and what I think happened is because of the few slips, you lost control. You shouldn’t put yourself down as you have achieved a lot”.


Abbey & Aljaz received a combined score of 32 with an 8 from Craig, an 8 from Darcey, an 8 from Len and an 8 from Bruno.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow evening at 7:20pm with the all important results show.
