Serious celebrities competing for a spot in the semi-finals

The contestants of the Universal Jump mostly received positive feedback from the judges in the last week of competition when competing for a place in the semi-finals.

Serious’s performance was moved this week a day earlier from Saturday to Friday due to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Both Coronation Street actor Will Mellor and host Helen Skelton received the highest marks from the judges with both receiving 39 points during musical week.

This is the second week Mellor, 46, has topped the charts as he received rave reviews from the judges for his slow and emotional foxtro dance to Sun And Moon in Miss Saigon.

Shirley Ballas, 62, applauded his “soul performance” along with his footwork.

Anton Du Beke also said Mellor has a difficult, three-step, right jump that “nobody can do”.

After Skelton and her partner Gorka Marquez performed their choice of an active and fun couple – meaning they didn’t have to do a traditional dance this time – with Mein Herr from Cabaret, they received a standing ovation from Ballas.

The 39-year-old was told by Ballas: “Am I looking at a mummy of three?

“Am I looking at a young girl who has grown from a shy girl from the first week to this sexy performance.

“I get goosebumps… it’s a memory I will cherish forever.”

Since taking the dance seriously last week, radio host Fleur East and her dance partner Vito Coppola are back in shape with a quick dance move in An American In Paris’s I Got Rhythm.

The 35-year-old singer received a standing ovation from judges Ballas and Motsi Mabuse when Du Beke, 56, said that “as far as I know you will be in” next week’s semi-final.

Mabuse, 41, said: “At the end of the day, we sprinkle a little magic on top (the end of the show) and that’s you.”

Both East and fellow singer Molly Rainford earned 38 points for their performances.

Rainford, 22, and her partner, Carlos Gu, performed an upbeat Charleston in Hot Honey Rag from Chicago and also received a standing ovation from Ballas and Mabuse.

Ballas said: “What a way to open, I didn’t expect… you look like you’re having a ball.”

She was criticized by Craig Revel Horwood, 57, for her “low elbows” but also praised for her transformation into a dancer during the competition.

Meanwhile, wildlife cinematographer Hamza Yassin earned 36 points for his samba dance in They Live In You from The Lion King alongside professional partner Jowita Przystal.

The 32-year-old received a standing ovation from Mabuse, who said he made her “happy” while Du Beke said he was “a bit overwhelmed” by the performance.

Horwood said it was “awesome” but criticized Yassin for some of his technique.

Ex-Hear’Say singer Kym Marsh, who returned to the dance floor after she had to quit the show last week after testing positive for Covid-19, was at the bottom of the table with 34 points.

The 46-year-old, also a former Coronation Street actress, performed an energetic ’80s cha-cha dance to Fame from Fame with her co-star Graziano Di Prima.

Mabuse said she was “always shining” but said she “would love to shoot more” when she said Marsh “was back with a bang”.

Meanwhile Ballas said: “There’s no hiding behind a costume (in a leotard)… you haven’t missed a beat.”
