28th November 2020

THE competition is heating up in the ballroom as Strictly stars head into week six of the show. 

This weekend will see stars battle it out for a place in the next week’s musicals round. 

As the competition enters its sixth week, there are seven contestants left on the show. 

Last week saw Caroline Quentin and Johannes Radebe take to the dancefloor for the final time. 

But the actress still left fans in stitches with her hilarious facial expressions.

Jamie Laing has risen through the ranks and now sits at the top of the Strictly leaderboard with 29 points. 

Jamie will be dancing the Tango this weekend by Sexeteto Mayor with dance pro Karen Hauer. 

But Maisie Smith and Ranvir Singh are hot on his heels in joint second place, each with 27 points. 

Clara Amfo will have to pick up the tempo this week after finishing last on the leaderboard in week five with just 18 points.

    IT TAKES TWO

    Jamie was actually spotted looking rather cosy with his dance partner Karen this week.

    The pair were seen arm-in-arm in London.

    Oo-err…

    YOUR FACE OR MINE?

    Tango face or no tango face, Jamie can't believe his girlfriend is actually with him – because of his face.

    Sounds harsh?

    Nope, it has come straight from the horse's mouth.

    Jamie says he can't believe Sophie is with him, as he reckons she is better looking.

    TOP DOG

    Jamie Laing finished top of the leader board last week.

    The Made In Chelsea star forgot about his posh roots for a hot minute and performed a hip hop routine.

    This week, he'll be performing the tango.

    Has he got a tango face? We'll soon find out…

    WOKING LIKE A PRO

    This week Maisie and her partner Gorka Marquez are dancing the quickstep.

    And it's fair to say she has thrown her back into rehearsals.

    In fact, Gorka himself claims he was left "broken" after practicing the routine TWENTY TIMES.

    Quite an achievement considering he is a professional dancer…

    RYLAN'S GOT HER BACK

    One Maisie Smith supporter who has got her back is It Takes Two host Rylan Clark.

    The telly star has slammed accusations that she is 'too cocky' and insists she is 'fantastic'.

    TOO CONFIDENT?

    Fans reckon they know why Maisie keeps ending up in the bottom two.

    Viewers claim that Brits 'don't like confident women'.

    Do you agree?

    BACK TO THE DANCE FLOOR

    It's been a tough ride recently for Maisie Smith.

    The Strictly star was left in tears after being the dance off again last Sunday.

    Can she escape it this week? Only time will tell…
