Let me start this Strictly recap by stating that whatever pain meds Len “8s for everyone!” Goodman is on, I want some. Perhaps they would have enlivened a rather dreary mid-series outing, in which everyone seemed to be pacing themselves for the Halloween insanity to come. It wasn’t until the final three dances (otherwise known as “X Factor overlap o’clock”) that the show kicked into gear with strong performances from three overt ringers – a risky strategy up there with the climactic hand of every terrible movie poker sequence. Top tip: saving the best for last only works if we haven’t already been broken by Andre’s rumba and left sobbing into a cushion some hours earlier.
