Here we go with the final part in my series where I’ll be taking a look at each of the finalists and their Strictly journeys so far. I will be taking them in the order of qualification which means we end with Bobby and Dianne
As it should be we have to journey right back to the beginning of the series to find Bobby and Dianne’s worst routines.
In week 1 their Foxtrot scored 29 with the judges (6,7,8,8)
Then the following week their Charleston also scored 29 points with the judges (7,7,7,8)
Interestingly both these routines scored one point more than the worst routines of the other two finalists
Also as it should be their best routine came during last week’s second part of the semi final. Their Quickstep scored 38 with Motsi and Craig denying them the maximum (9,9,10,10)
Bobby and Dianne have amassed a total of 423 points from 13 routines making for an average score of 32.5
Number of times in the dance off
Bobby and Dianne have survived two dance offs on their route to the final. The first came in Blackpool week when their Jive scored 35 (8,9,9,9) but they were easily able to dispense with Angela R and Kai
Their second dance off came during last week’s Semi Final where the above mentioned Quickstep ended Annabel and Johannes’ Strictly journey on a split decision
Can they win?
It’s going to be a tough ask. They are the weakest on paper though that also means they have the most scope to improve especially with their judge’s pick and favourite routines.
They have performed better in my polling though when they have evoked emotion from the audience and polled the best after their couple’s choice which was dedicated to Bobby’s late mother Jade Goody. This routine is returning for the final.
It’s going to depend how strong a final they have though and if they can pick up some floating voters especially given the lead one of the other finalists has in the poles. But odder Strictly victories have happened so never say never!
Do you agree? Will you be supporting Bobby and Dianne? You can let me know your thoughts over on Facebook, X, Instagram and Threads. All this series I’ve been running a competition where you can take the prize for that week or hand it back for a place in the final to be held before the end of the year where one of you will be winning a £500 voucher. But for the final weekend there are no more vouchers to be won and no more decisions to be made. But three of you who get involved in the discussion this weekend will be joining the other finalists to potentially win a £500 amazon voucher. Full competition details can be found here!
