Strictly Come Dancing live blog: Show Four
This live event has finished
- It's the Strictly Come Dancing live blog: Show Four, and it's time for the first pair of dancers to be voted off.
There it is. One couple down, 13 to go until we find our winner. Join us again next Saturday for the next installment. Bye!
You can't teach that.
Nice bit of dad dancing to end the show.
Ahh well! Rachel Riley, you're my new favourite #Strictly— @Stuart_Daulby 06 October 2013
Tony has lots of praise for Aliona. Len says he would have voted off 'one of his heroes' too.
Bruno also saves Julien and Janette. Julien's well chuffed with that.
So does Darcey. No surprises here really.
Craig saves Julien and Janette.
Now it's time for the judges' vote. Cue moody lighting.
With respect to Tony, it's lacking a bit of energy this one. Not sure whether the golf clubs are a help or a hindrance.
It's all very serious until he breaks a smile at the end. Was it enough to see him through to next week? Here's Tony...
#strictly think Tony is going to go tonight.— @ruth_clark 06 October 2013
What song is this? Hope their shoes are clean.
Julien's first up on the dancefloor.
That was the first dance at my wedding. Dave wasn't singing it then, mind.
Some weird VT now where everyone's behaving strangely and creating some sort of dream sequence where Hairy Biker Dave is singing I Love You Baby.
I'd be over the moon if Julien went. #strictly— @Our_Rach 06 October 2013
Darcey blames lack of technique for Julien's place in the bottom two. But he's had a "fabulous sparkly time". He's going to try and impress the judges one more time.
Vanessa's safe! It's Julien and Janette who will dance against Tony and Aliona to keep their place in the show.
So either Vanessa and James or Julien and Janette will also be in the dance-off.
Three left. Also through to next week's show are Fiona and Anton.
Rachel and Pasha will be back, alongside Sophie and Brendan.
Hairy Biker Dave and Karen are also through.
Also back are Abbey and Aljaz. Maybe they'll do the robot, eh Peter?
The next couple safe is Ashley and Ola.
Now the remaining couples will learn their fate...
Claudia's chatting to the judges now about last night's performances. Mark's getting praise for his 'character', not much for his dancing.
#strictly. Tony reminds me of Mr Tumnus! Is it me?????! Go Tony!— @73marymoo 06 October 2013
On the strength of that performance Matt, not sure you will ever be famous. That was poor. #strictly— @rossbalham 06 October 2013
There's a bit of a Chicago flavour to this one.
Oh god I'm 13 again *screeeeaaammm* #strictly #mattgoss— @EmmaPeers 06 October 2013
Not a song worth bringing back matt! #strictly nice hat tho— @beadercollie 06 October 2013
He's performing a very jazzy(?) version of When Will I Be Famous. Not sure they'll be playing this one in the clubs.
Here's Matt Goss, with his name in very large lights.
Tony, looking like a confused jester, says he feels calmer than he did before the dance earlier/last night.
Len says he's surprised about that. Really?
But the first couple fighting for survival are Tony and Aliona, to groans from the audience. Perhaps his dancing performance was... below par?! I'm sorry.
Mark and Iveta are through. No word on whether his bowl cut will be reappearing though.
Susanna and Kevin make it five safe.
Ben and Kristina are also coming back next week. The big man looks relieved with that result.
Also safe are, unsurprisingly, Natalie and Artem.
Second couple safe is Deborah and Robin.
Patrick and Anya. They're pleased.
But tonight it's about who's going home. First couple safe is...
So top of last night's leaderboard, including last week's scores, were Natalie and Artem with 65 points. Second were Sophie and Brendan (64) and third were Abbey and Aljaz (62).

Tony Jacklin 1st to leave #Strictly?— @map1e23 06 October 2013
Here's Tess and Claudia for the first results of the series. Claudia is all in black, not very sparkly.
Loving the professionals dance tonight #strictly— @Dancingsar 06 October 2013
Hey, they stole that move from Bucks Fizz.
Opening dance is a sultry affair to Beyonce's Crazy in Love. All prison bars and red lighting.
Right then #strictly now— @beadercollie 06 October 2013
15 celebs about to become 14...
Stand by, here we go...
If you don't want to know the result, don't check my @TimesIndyDepEd timeline. Someone's just tweeted me the result....!
Too much tv on tonight #Homeland #strictly #xfactor #Towie #ByAnyMeans and now the sky remote has broke. Tesco metro dash in a minute!— @mattchubb1980 06 October 2013
Need a recap of last night's action. Read our Show Three live blog here.
I'm currently being forced to watch last night's The X Factor. When did they start crying so much? So see you at 7.20pm to see which dancers will be the first to be voted off this series.
So here we are on a Sunday night. Wasn't expecting this. *makes note to buy Radio Times*
