Laura (above) has natural rhythm, a great opening cha-cha.
Naga did a very elegant waltz.
Robert (Judge Rinder) is this year's comedy turn, but he can dance. He's not technically great but a great people pleaser. Could go a long way.
Lesley did a very elegant waltz with some nice heel turns. After getting to the final last year with Katie I thought Anton might be back on the “nice but two left feet contestant” again. I'm glad that Anton has someone who is trying hard and treating the competition seriously.
Ore did well, but I really don't like pop music used for tangos and this didn't work for me. I have to agree with Len a bit about the faffing about at the beginning.
Greg as a long jumper can jump and he did a few here but his jive bounce action is not great. I had a few flashbacks to Natalie's former celeb partner Michael Vaughn. Both had energy but their jive leg action was rather haphazard.
