Quickstep Update

BBC Update:

Jessie and Darren are having an eventful session with more ups and downs than a roller coaster. With equal measures of laughter and frustration, the pair completed the Quickstep routine for Saturday's show and even managed to fit in a bit of acting - the pair re-enacting Jessie's famous EastEnders scene with her screaming at Darren 'You're not my dance partner' (instead of the line 'You're not my mother!'), with Darren replying 'Yes I am!!!'

There were lots of giggles from Rachel, "I don't know what's wrong with me today, I can't stop laughing" - and the usual antics from Vincent. Rachel explained that the show is quite a difference from her days in S Club 7, where she was performing with the rest of the group all the time. Nevertheless she's having the time of her life, and being on Strictly is a dream come true for her! 

Christine and Matthew seemed to be getting on very well, with Christine showing a lot more confidence in her dance than in previous weeks, "I get up in the morning and look forward to getting to training and it's just lovely spending time with him [Matt] actually." Christine is confident in all the girls' performances as she feels the "...girls listen more and will learn faster, giving Austin and Tom a run for their money."

And Heather has been working hard on her QuickStep too "... I'm holding myself a lot better now with Brian's help so I think its just trying to put it altogether and feel comfortable with it... we've still got a couple of days so hopefully that will work out." Brian told us he is delighted with Heather's performance so far and he 'knows' that she will go out there and give it everything on Saturday night... he just has to convince her of that!
