Evening all, and welcome to this week’s Strictly Come Dancing liveblog! It’s the weekend commonly know as pre-Halloween, where everyone talks a lot about wanting to make it to the Halloween Spooktactular so they can legitimately dance a Salsa that looks like a sack of old bones.
But before that, our ten* remaining couples are locked and loaded for another evening of shaking their thang on the Strictly dancefloor. Ugo and Oti are back from injury, but Judi and Graziano are off because Judi has Covid. Aside from the launch, have we had a single week where we’ve managed a full house? Sending happy thoughts to Judi, hope she’s back on the Strictly dancefloor soon.
In other news, there’s no Couple’s Choice again this week; obviously this is joyous news, but it also bodes badly for a contempowaft/hip hop-heavy Halloween.
Kick off is at 7.05pm, so grab your nanna and some snacks, and I’ll see you then!
*at time of writing. Who the hell knows.
