Next on Strictly Come Dancing, Corrie actress Tina O’Brien and her American dance partner Jared Marillo. They’re dancing the cha cha cha to the unusual choice of Katy Perry’s California Gurls. Jared’s dressed up like a total geek, while Tina looks slightly bimbonic in a bright pink dress.
The dancing’s average, I wasn’t particularly sold on Tina’s performance. But then the awful backing singing was offputting.
Len Goodman: It lost energy in places. Jared, you could produce a slightly stronger routine because I think this girl’s got a lot of talent. Alesha Dixon: It didn’t blow me away as much as I would’ve wanted it to. Chin up, better luck next week. Bruno Tolioni: You have the concept of baby doll Lolita, but you went wrong so many times. If you go wrong, carry on. Craig Revel-Horwood: Too much strutting around pointlessly. It was a bit uneventful.
Scores: Craig – 5, Len – 7, Alesha – 6, Bruno – 6 Totals: 24
And we discover that Jared was a principal dancer on High School Musical. Interesting…
