Judge Rinder spices up the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Blackpool special


Judge Rinder got his Spice on at the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Blackpool special this evening.

It was the latest live show as the remaining seven dancers took to the ballroom once again.

But this week was the Blackpool special with all the couples performing live at the iconic Tower Ballroom.

Judge Rinder and pro partner Oksana Platero danced the Salsa to ‘Spice Up Your Life’ by Spice Girls

Darcey Bussell commented: "This is certainly your dance. I've never seen a guy able to shake their cheeks like that!"

Craig Revel Horwood added: "I thought it was hip-tastic. I really did. Your booty shakes... the round off at the end, I think I'd like to call you Judge Grinder from now on."

Bruno Tonioli said: "You were spicier and hotter than a Scotch bonnet, you reinvented the name bootylicious, it looked like you had a nuclear reaction going on there... but that's why you lost a bit of timing."

Len Goodman agreed: "You came up with a sweet smelling salsa... unfortunately you got overexcited and you started rushing and you got lost for timing."

When it came to the scores, it was an 8 from Craig, a 9 from Darcey and 8s also from both Len and Bruno.

Will it be enough to keep the pair in the competition and see them through to next weekend?

As always, the judges' scores from tonight's dances will be combined with the results of the public vote to help determine the bottom two dancers in Sunday's results show.

Those two celebrity couples will have to dance again for the judges in Sunday night's results show at 7:15PM on BBC One where one of them will be eliminated.
