Our opening pro dance answers the question “what will they do for pro dances without obvious theming to lean on?”. Answer? Make the male pros run around stripping off, motorboating the judges, and generally acting like they’re pissed off they didn’t get cast in Magic Mike. Artem and Pasha get their tits out ; James, Vincent, Robin, and Brendan don’t ; Anton does, but backstage, and then has a bit of a cry. The whole thing is sadly missing Erin, standing at the side, looking pissed off.
Backstage with Claudia, everyone molests Vincent, Victoria flashes Claudia, we find out who has a crush on Artem, everyone’s still doing it Gangnam Style, the Nicky vs Michael BANTERWARZ continue, and we are still no closer to finding out who that sexy mummy was. Answers on a postcard please. Mercifully, we are spared the sight of Tess throwing shade at Claudia for “sneaking around” backstage. This is clearly solely because she’s getting to present the show next week, as Bruce is on holiday. Can’t wait. (By which I mean I very definitely can wait). A joke is made about Ronnie Corbett doing it. Some things…shouldn’t be joked about.
There two musicals guests this week : The Wanted, who have brought an entire IBEFA ARMY with them, and Andrea Bocelli who has to rely on Pasha and (randomly) Karen to do some contemporary wafting for him. One of the two experience is more aurally pleasant than the other. Guess which one. Never mind The Wanted, one of you’s still fit. I think.
This week’s adventures in Len’s Glans cover Erin laughing her way around Erin Island as Richard messes up ; Len yelling ; Dani’s jive getting (some of) the recognition it deserved ; Len waving his paddles around obnoxiously ; Artem’s tits ; Kimberley’s tits. So if you ignore the bits that don’t involve Len, it’s actually quite an enjoyable edition for once, regardless of your persuasion. Good job, Len’s Glans.
Our Bottom 2? Entirely conveniently for the purposes of producing a dramatic Dance-Off (for once), it’s Richard getting another go, getting his foxtrot right, and knocking somebody out. Said somebody being Colin Salmon whose complete lack of a fanbase finally saw for him. Kristina is PISSED OFF but unsurprised, and Colin gives a goodbye speech like he’s leading the charge at the Somme. The other celebrities act like he is as well.
