Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell rates this year's remaining celebs

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 - Judges

Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell has given her views on this year's remaining celebs.

Chatting on BBC Two spin-off It Takes Two last night, Dacey was quizzed by host Zoe Ball about the current crop of all star contestants.

Running through the names, Darcey began by suggestion that Greg Rutherford had gained his confidence after a few low scores.

She said: "I suppose Greg, in a way... he's had his low and he's coming back on a high again, it's about gaining that confidence again and feeling like, 'Oh, I have got something, I've got the physical attributes'.

"He suddenly got low for about two weeks and I'm like, 'Noooo, don't do this!'"

On Ore Oduba, Darcey still couldn't stop praising his jive: "It was relentlessness... it was so exciting and didn't seem to stop. It was the style, he just looked calm and cool... it was incredible."

And as for favourite to win Danny Mac, Darcey said: "He's sensational! [His jive] worked so well: the braces, the look. He was just in that character."

As for the girls, Darcey gave Louise Redknapp a ten after last Saturday's Argentine Tango: "From beginning to end, it was so detailed. It was beautiful."

Meanwhile, the dancer revealed she'd want to team up with Aljaž Skorjanec if competing the series... or one of the female pros!

"I just look at them as great teachers. Out of the girls I think Natalie would be a great coach. I’d love to work with her and maybe Oti," Darcey said. “Out of the men, well I’ve got such a choice haven’t I? I’ve had Ian Waite so I think Alijaz because he’s very caring and reads you well.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
