Week 6 recap
An eye-popping celebration of all things dance, this week's show was truly stunning! The night kicked off with a glorious performance by our Pros, choreographed by Torvill & Dean, and that was only the beginning of the treats in store...
Joe & Alex skated like disco never died, performing to 'Boogie Wonderland' by Earth, Wind & Fire. Their exuberant routine included a series of connected roly-polys - the Judges were wowed enough to award them 32 points, their highest score so far!
H & Matt went for a Bob Fosse-inspired jazz routine, skating to Michael Bublé's 'Fever'. Their finger snaps and jazzy hats earned them 29.5 points from the Judges - 0.5 points higher than any of their other performances so far.
Libby & Mark made a triumphant return after a week out due to illness, skating salsa-style to 'I Like It Like That' by Pete Rodriguez. The Ice Panel definitely did like it like that too, awarding them 33 points, their best to date.
Lisa & Tom tackled the tricky Charleston on ice, skating to 'Hot Honey Rag' from the Chicago Orchestra. They got 30 points from the Judges.
Perri & Vanessa's jive skate was their most ambitious yet, leaving everyone bowled over. The Ice Panel gave them an impressive 38 points out of 40, another series high!
Ben & Carlotta's skate might have been the most unexpected of the night, taking inspiration from Morris dancing - complete with a maypole on the ice! The Judges gave them 31 points, which was also their highest score so far.
Maura & Alexander gave us another series first, becoming the first couple to perform a headbanger as part of their flamenco-inspired skate to 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' by Santa Esmeralda. They earned themselves 30.5 points from the Judges.
After the public vote, two couples faced the dreaded skate-off: H & Matt, and Ben & Carlotta. Both put in bravura performances, but the Ice Panel could only choose to save one couple. They picked Ben & Carlotta, meaning H & Matt skated off in seventh place.
Can you believe we've already had six live shows? The competition is closer than ever as we head towards our seventh...
