Abbey's score: 8, 8, 8, 8.
RT @thejamessutton: If this song makes you cry, imagine how Crouchy feels watching his bird dance with someone her own size. #prayforpeter …— @vickiemac1980 28 September 2013
Very serious from Abbey. BBC saving her serious routine until last. Abbey looks like she's enjoying it. Plenty of chemistry there. Is Peter worried yet...?
Tess just asked: "Who's next Bruce, are we saving the best until last?" And someone clearly said "no". That won't please Abbey Clancy, who is talking on camera about how she enjoys the school run. Yeah, right.
Vanessa: 3, 5, 6, 5.
Well said Anne Hewson below.
oh shut up Vanessa @bbcstrictly— @AnneHewson 28 September 2013
Vanessa now arguing with the judges. No surprise there.
RT @bbcstrictly: "I goofed up a tiny bit but I did my best!" @2FionaFullerton #scd http://t.co/QFjK20kCSC— @NainiJo 28 September 2013
The lift didn't come.
Mrs B saying: "These are very basic moves."
Vanessa wearing a lot of pink. Very theatrical performance so far. Waiting for the big lift at the end...
Here comes Vanessa. Been looking forward to this one...
Patrick: 7, 7, 7, 7.
I sense a good score coming for Patrick. Casualty legend.
RT @bbcstrictly: Patrick's BPM is now 250 over 50. Has he got your pulse racing too? #strictly http://t.co/29czSSLmDH— @ChandlerKes 28 September 2013
Why is Craig Revel Horwood being such a big meanie they are doing there best !!#scd @bbcstrictly— @Divorced_Daddy 28 September 2013
@bbcstrictly @HairyBikers Definitely gonna be the publics favourite. The shows sherry trifle.— @driverbob69 28 September 2013
Patrick Robinson now. He's 49-years-old you know.
Deborah gets: 6, 6, 6, 6.
I thought I was being clever by saying: enter the dragon, but it appears everyone said the same.
RT @bbcstrictly: Enter the Dragon! http://t.co/6MDqgwTJhN— @kaseylouisee 28 September 2013
Money, Money, Money for Deborah Meaden. Looking very stern... no smiles yet. Oh apparently it's a Tango and she's not supposed to smile, my wife reliably informs me.
Enter the Dragon...
Julian's scores: 3, 5, 6, 6.
"Hideously flat footed", Craig tells this Julian fellow.
RT @bbcstrictly: VOUGEING. Otherwise known as the hokey cokey for fashion designers #strictly http://t.co/QKR2mnFcFj— @Shelleyiz 28 September 2013
Fashion designer outraged folk on Twitter tell me...
Some guy called Julian apparently.
I have been too busy discussing my dance moves on twitter and now don't know who this next contestant is...
Rachel's scores: 6, 7, 7, 7. Not bad.
Back to Strictly. Rachel Riley has finished.
We now have the leader of Harrow Council, my wife and my best man discussing my dance moves on Twitter. This is what live blogs are all about...
Count Down's Rachel Riley up next. Our chief sub has a crush on her...
RT @BrownNick_J: @TimesIndyEditor I would take that as a compliment, he has some moves in him that would not have looked out of place at ri…— @TimesIndyEditor 28 September 2013
@Councillorsuzie @TimesIndyEditor unfortunately for his kids hiding is something he will never do, always middle of the dance floor— @TBuhagiar 28 September 2013
2, 5, 5, 4 for Dave, who has taken it in typically good natured fashion.
Responses below to my son's comments...!
RT @Councillorsuzie: @TimesIndyEditor OMG hide in shame!!— @TBuhagiar 28 September 2013
RT @TBuhagiar: @TimesIndyEditor you have the same enthusiasm and similar repertoire!— @TimesIndyEditor 28 September 2013
RT @bbcstrictly: Dave’s hair is so rhythmic and groovey, next week it will have it's own dressing room. #strictly http://t.co/iBaChVxpny— @bubbley_beez 28 September 2013
Moves like Jagger is an up tempo song. How slow is this version for poor old Dave?
My nine-year-old has just told me I dance like Dave Myers. *mortified.
After last night's #Strictly, hashtag #SCD was trending globally until at least 2am. Aunty Beeb *will* be proud @BBCStrictly— @SCD2013News 28 September 2013
Here comes the hairy biker Dave Myers. He looks a little bit like Mike Myers, but they're definitely not related.
Fiona's marks: 5, 6, 7, 6. You lot do the maths, I'm trying to eat while I do this...
I can't hear what the judges are saying at the moment as my middle son (6) is talking about Han Solo in his toy spaceship. The noise is on and its deafening.
I missed the dance I was too busy singing along.
View to a Kill. 80s classic. Cut unsympathetically by the BBC band. Lead singer clearly struggling to hit Simon Le Bon's high notes.
Bond girl Fiona Fullerton next. I do like how they always pretend they got the dancer they wanted. 'Anton was the one I wanted', of course he was love...
3 (Craig), 5 (Darcey), 6 (Len), 5 (Bruno) for Ben. I agree with the 3.
Bruno now flirting with Ben, but confirming that he was wooden. 'I have seen breeze blocks with more movement,' says Craig.
RT @bbcstrictly: Our costume department ran out of red spandex when it came to finishing Ben Cohen’s sleeves. #truefact #strictly http://t.…— @amanrai83 28 September 2013
Oh dear Ben, looking as wooden as a Six Nations wooden spoon.
@bbcstrictly wow that was one of the best ever show openers EVER!!!!! The professionals ROCK!!!!— @NicolaClark11 28 September 2013
Egg-chaser Ben Cohen up first tonight...
So no voting tonight. It's almost like they brought this forward a week to challenge the X Factor's ratings...
Vanessa Feltz: journalist and broadcaster? I'm embarrassed for my profession...
Bruce has been on the sauce surely...
Tess not looking like a banana tonight.
Sit down Bruno.
That's the wife below who is clearly excited. She's danced at competitions where Len Goodman has judged you know. FACT.
RT @TBuhagiar: Yay bring on #strictly— @GemMcC 28 September 2013
Wow, a huge surge in #strictly on Twitter. Nearly made my computer freeze. That wouldn't have been very good.
Why is Alexander Armstrong dressed like that on Pointless? Very odd. Anyway, five minutes until we get going...
@bbcstrictly Good luck to all the celebrities taking part tonight x— @matthewnoonan17 28 September 2013
Arsenal have now scored twice so I'm going to turn over...
RT @bbcstrictly: Iveta shows us her moves! #scd https://t.co/xlDTpO0QXH— @ViJo28 28 September 2013
I can't stand Pointless, especially the celebrity edition, so I'll be watching Swansea-Arsenal until 6.59pm...
RT @OfficialVernonK: SCD tonight...The hairy biker is priceless....Good luck to all.— @AlliGagaMonster 28 September 2013
My night sorted: Strictly, The X Factor then Through The Key Hole...so busy with that!— @Finch98 28 September 2013
Highly unlikely though as I doubt I can spell the technical terms she will come out with...
I will be bringing you some top notch critique of tonight's dancers via my wife who is a dance teacher. This could be a very technical blog...
Me and Junior curled up on sofa together. Waiting for Pointless & Strictly. Need some glittery glamour after the way I've looked this week— @AlliGagaMonster 28 September 2013
