Strictly Come Dancing: Show Seven (that's Saturday) live blog
This live event has finished
- And tonight will feature the second attempt at #strictlybingo, with six categories to tick off as they go.
- First, someone who isn't Len shouting 'seVEN'.
- Two: someone who isn't Darcey mentioning a dancer's 'top line'.
- Three: someone who is Bruno getting up and thrusting his hips.
- Four: someone who isn't Craig saying 'darling'.
- Five: Bruce saying 'they're on their feet'.
- Six: Bruce telling a good joke. (The judge's decision is final. That's me.)
- The winner will be the first person to tweet 'house' with the hashtag #strictly bingo. The prize is a FREE newspaper, if you live in the Times Series' circulation area.
That's it. I'm going to watch a documentary about an art gallery in Scotland now. Or Atlantis, according to Mrs WebEd.
You can now vote, but don't forget taking part in #strictlybingo is free, and you could win a FREE newspaper. Ever wondered what happens in Shenley? You could find out.

The scores: 6, 7, 8, 8. Was that a seVEN from Darcy?
Sophie and Brendan up top, but Deborah, Dave and Karen down the bottom of the leaderboard.

RT @bbcstrictly: Hips Don't Lie! @susannareid100 #scd http://t.co/3eyK1naGWk— @Pop_Scoop 19 October 2013
Len liked it, then. I was too busy doing computer things to notice the sexy lady on the telly.
Dave Myers @HairyBikers has danced to the Eagles @bbcstrictly Should he win Beard of Autumn? Vote now[or not] http://t.co/MuYX4Fi2uV #scd— @kmflett 19 October 2013
Last up it's Susannah Reid and Kevin from Grimsby. I think that's what he said.
@peerobinson "They said it was my best dance yet so that's what I need to do next week, really enjoy myself!" #scd http://t.co/22BIKoffRg— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
The scores: 5, 6, 6, 6. But will Dave's serious side cost him popularity?
A 'personal best' for Dave fom Craig. Has anyone else said 'darling'? I haven't been paying attention.
What will Craig say?
Len says Dave's tittivated himself up well.
Well.. it goes with out saying TV chef Dave was going to make a great 'smoothie' scd http://t.co/QDwMyQpyva— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
"@bbcstrictly: A-MA-ZING! Abbey and Aljaz #scd http://t.co/efk42sJjpw"— @lkthomas87 19 October 2013
It's Dave, waltzing to the Eagles. Technical Twitter issue here...
Working on one's core: a future Strictly cliche?
The scores: 9, 8, 9, 9.
Another blinder from Abbey? Imperious.
@DeborahMeaden "Robin didn't have a clue what I was doing. He was having too much fun himself!" #scd @Robinwindsor http://t.co/BLAJB2UlS4— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Abbey up next. Dancing the tango.
Abbey and Alijaž are so beautiful #scd— @_aimeegrace 19 October 2013
Patrick is my fave! #SCD— @CardleAndMe 19 October 2013
RT @bbcstrictly: Mercy mercy mercy! #scd http://t.co/Jqi5Kap9uj— @Ellen_melon8 19 October 2013
The scores: 8, 8, 9, 8.
Picture issues here. Bear with us.
Bruno's on his feet, but no hip thrusts. #strictlybingo
RT @bbcstrictly: Natalie's 'back' in the game! #scd http://t.co/j9rXTxfHnZ— @GoldenEye1957 19 October 2013
Next up, Ash from Casualty, or Patrick Robinson, dancing the Cha Cha Cha.
The scores: 9, 9, 8, 9.
The judges like it, but some would say she's practically a professional dancer anyway.
The gay men I follow on Twitter normally have the same taste in men as me.... Thus, who is Ben Cohen?— @SeemaChandwani 19 October 2013
Natalie and Artem. Great dance last week, but hope her back's OK.
Scores for Deborah: 5, 6, 6, 6.
Getting wiggy with it! scd http://t.co/sSjR58tVYl— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
She's enjoying herself, but a bit flat-footed. And just as I was wondering about glittery trousers...
Dragon Deborah and Robin up next.
The scores: 8, 8, 8, 7. Calm down, Craig.
RT if you'd like Ben to take a look under your bonnet. #scd http://t.co/u0Ov4WvtQp— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
He's not actually moving.
'He's a very cuddly man.' Dancing the salsa. No dancing yet, though.
'Simpering? I'm not simpering?' Drooling with lust, then.
Ben and Kristina next. Those arms. That derriere. Mrs WebEd is simpering already.
The scores: 5, 7, 7, 7.
“@bbcstrictly: BRUNO's OFF HIS CHAIR #scd” It was only a matter of time!— @karen_bradberry 19 October 2013
And Len has made Bruno fall off his chair.
So folks are Rachel and Pasha going to steal the show with this little number? #scd http://t.co/Qyo46gHqV9— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Started well, but did she stiffen up towards the end?
Rachel and Pasha, dancing the quickstep.
Baby, Scary, Posh, Sporty, Ginger and er... Sparkles! #truefact Spice Up Your Life was No.1 this week in 1997 #scd http://t.co/fUsbCauIbJ— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
The scores: 4, 6, seVEN, 6. 23 is Julien's best yet.
Julien has done hip thrusts, sadly not during the dance. He's not a judge, so it won't count for #strictlybingo, the competition in which I am the only contestant. Anyone would think it was a bad idea I had in a traffic jam near the Hanger Lane gyratory.
He looks like he's dancing with himself again.
Julien Macdonald dances to the Spice Girls soon. And a succession of bad jokes from Bruce.
The scores: 7, 8, 8, 8.
Unnatural arms, says Craig. Wait for lumberjackish Ben Cohen, I say.
In the arms of @ashoztd it's Ola! #scd http://t.co/tu8ZbNdb7p— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
A Viennese Waltz, then. Faster, according to Darcey. A bit like telling a house sparrow from a tree sparrow.
@2FionaFullerton "I don't know what's wrong with me. I go out there and just go to pieces." #scd http://t.co/v3nBBVOxMG— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Next up, Ashley and Ola.
The scores: 3, 8, 8, 7. I agree with Craig.
Was it funny? Really?
Also. Gold bacofoil. Who thought that was a good idea?— @V_the_Obscure 19 October 2013
It's HAMMER TIME! #scd http://t.co/v6CUGG9Lmz— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
MC Hammer, then they play the Beastie Boys. Of course, I preferred Public Enemy's Party for your right to fight. I was too cool for school, aged about seven.
Next up Mark Benton, and what is he wearing?
The scores: 4, 6, 6, 6.
We love the way Bruno pronounces the Rhooomba #scd http://t.co/N5u7KjSnzZ— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Bruno said 'My darling'. That's not quite 'darling'. #strictlybingo.
Craig did say 'darling', but he doesn't count.
So, the rumba, or is it rhumba?
Guess who'll be rocking these strictly blinding trousers tonight? Get your sunglasses at the ready! #scd http://t.co/BdBsxRVRpm— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Next up, Fiona Fullerton and Anton.
A Hollywood star? Paul Welsh would say a Borehamwood star.
The scores: 8, 9, 9, 9.
One lower for Craig there, as ever.
That's Bruno who's said 'top line'. Point two. And Craig.
Fred and Ginger! http://t.co/dOjg28CBN1— @bbcstrictly 19 October 2013
Elegant hands, there. I've been paying attention to what the judge's say.
The foxtrot, and it's looking good.
Mrs Content Editor says that last Brucie joke was quite good. It's a chin. Wasn't expecting a good joke this early, to be honest. Only put it in to make things difficult.
Sophie and Brendon up first. There was the great Charleston, cooled off last week. What next?
Here's a picture. By the way, that energy price joke wasn't good.
RT @bbcstrictly: Two words. Dashing Darrrling. The boys know how to work those braces. #scd http://t.co/1pXYMtS70q— @Awerka 19 October 2013
And the show is set to begin, with Mrs Web Content Editor beside me on the sofa saying unhelpful things. The first is that I have no sense of humour. The second appears to be that she has the cat on her lap so I will be doing this as well as anything that needs doing in the living room.
