strictly come dancing. Laila Rouas, Anton Du Beke

Laila Rouass and Anton Du Beke


Strictly Come Dancing stars upped the glamour stakes at the weekend in a possible bid to rival The X Factor.


The contestants were seen strutting their stuff in a classic ballroom performance and racy tango routine with plenty of flesh on show.

Footballers Wives actresses Zoe Lucker (with James Jordan) and Laila Rouass (with Anton Du Beke) both wore revealing outfits that showed off their super-toned bods, and even Jo Wood, one of the older contestants, donned a similarly short get-up.

However it is a dancing contest after all and someone had to go. Former jockey Richard Dunwoody became the latest contestant voted off Strictly on Saturday.

He said his time on the celebrity dance contest had been an 'unbelievable experience', after he lost out to Coronation Street star Craig Kelly in a dance-off.

Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle is the bookies' favourite to win after topping the judges' scoreboard last night.

Next week's programme sees the remaining fourteen dancers perform either a quickstep or a paso doble.

The next Strictly Come Dancing is on BBC One on Saturday at 7pm.
