Fleur East topped the rigorous rankings on an emotional night full of tears

Fleur East topped the charts for serious dance on a night dominated by tearful performances filled with personal meaning.

Saturday sees the remaining nine couples battle for a spot on next week’s Blackpool special, which will see the BBC One show return to the prestigious Tower Ballroom after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

East and dance partner Vito Coppola danced an energetic samba to Arrow’s Hot Hot Hot.

Craig Revel Horwood said: “If that dance doesn’t get you to Blackpool, I don’t know what will” while Motsi Mabuse burst into tears.

The radio presenter and singer scored 39 points and topped the charts.

Former soccer player Tony Adams was in danger of finishing in the game after his jump with Wilson Pickett’s Land Of 1,000 Dances was defeated by the umpires, leaving him 24th and bottom of the table. on the leaderboard.

Elsewhere, Will Mellor, Hamza Yassin and Kym Marsh all perform family-specific procedures, both living and dead.

Mellor and her partner Nancy Xu performed Commodores’ Three Times A Lady in memory of father Bill, who passed away in April 2020 after being diagnosed with cancer two weeks earlier, winning 38 points and ranked second.

He was left in tears after the performance left Mabuse speechless, while Anton Du Deke described the footwork as “incomplete” and praised the way they moved together as a couple.

Mellor then wiped her tears and admitted she couldn’t speak.

Stepping forward for him, Xu also cried as he said, “We want to dedicate this dance to those who have lost loved ones and can’t say goodbye.”

Yassin scored 38 points for his pair picking Master KG’s Jerusalema remix with Burna Boy and Nomcebo Zikode, joining Mellor in second place.

The wildlife cameraman and host of the documentary sobbed after his performance, which is dedicated to his Sudanese and African heritage.

Mabuse, who grew up in South Africa, also wept as he said, “I never thought in my life that I would see this in a serious dance.”

Marsh and Graziano Di Prima danced a smooth American dance to Chasing Cars, originally by Snow Patrol, dedicated to their son Archie, who was born premature and died shortly thereafter.

Before taking to the stage, she said: “I feel like doing this dance is not just a tribute to Archie but hopefully can get people talking about their experience because it’s the right path. to put your life. back together.”

The judges praised her “fragility” and “vulnerability” but noted a mistake in the middle.

After the dance, Marsh breaks down in tears and apologizes to Di Prima for putting their chance at Blackpool at risk.

However, the judges still awarded her 31 out of 40 possible points, placing her fifth overall.

Another standout performance came from Molly Rainford, whose rumba in Whitney Houston’s All The Man That I Need earned 37 points.

Her success comes after she finished dancing last week with Paralympic swimming champion Ellie Simmonds.

The episode also saw Adams make a risky joke to his dance.

As is his custom, co-host Tess Daly asked “what about those hilarious friends, Shirley?” before Adams teased further: “Do you want to fool poly with me, Shirley?” causing the studio audience to scream and groan.
