    Week One: Cha Cha Cha

    Tonight, after an amazing opening professional routine (to my favourite song!!), Aliona and Jay performed a cheeky Cha Cha Cha to Reach Out, I’ll Be There by Human Nature and currently sit in joint 3rd place on the leaderboard.



    Craig: I also like the way you can isolate your body, you did a lovely body roll there, it was all very neat and very tidy. The only thing I would say to add something to that is showmanship. I just felt that you were’t really living the experience I felt like you were just dancing the steps. 5
    Darcey: Your posture, your stance, you gave strength and direct, you were leading her, she wasn’t in control you were in control of the dance. It was brilliant. 8
    Len: Jay McGuiness, you’re like a glass of Guiness: full-bodied and you got a lot of froth on top! Don’t you go anywhere, you’re wanted. 7
    Bruno: Oh Jay! I’m glad you came! I’m telling you, you have the potential to be a great hit on the dance floor. 7

    TOTAL = 27/40

    The National Lottery Awards

    Earlier tonight Aliona and Jay (along with other members of the Strictly family) attended the National Lottery Awards, an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery funded projects.

    As ever, Aliona looked absolutely stunning and Jay scrubbed up pretty well! Don’t they make a great partnership already?!
