Strictly Come Dancing 2016 – Week 5 Discussion/Poll

Here we are in week 5 and again it’s been another eventful week or so in the land of Strictly. Brendan has had to withdraw from this week due to ill health and therefore Anastacia will be dancing with Gorka instead. And Laura and Giovanni have taken a bye into next week due to Laura injuring her ankle and will not be dancing tonight.

But for Anastacia and Gorka and the 9 other remaining couples, the spookiness of Halloween week next week is just one (or possibly two) dances away. Who shone for you this week? And who should be sent packing? You can let me know your thoughts on that or anything else to do with this week’s Strictly in the comments right here or you can head on over to Facebook/Twitter and join the discussion there (on Twitter please remember to tag @davejthorp and include #StrictlySpoiler). Each time you get involved with the discussion here or on the social networks you earn an entry into the biggest competition this site has ever run and earn a chance to win a £20 Amazon UK Voucher and possibly a Kindle Fire Tablet. Full details on the competition and all the ways you can enter including an email entry route can be found here.

The winner of this week’s competition will be announced on the spoiler post later but I can reveal that this week’s winner joined the discussion right here at the home of the Strictly Spoiler so why not join them for your chance to win!

As normal a poll will open right here once all the couples have danced this week and will give you something to do while you are refreshing the site waiting for the spoiler to come in. You can select 3 options just like always. Or why not join the discussion whilst waiting for the spoiler right here in the comments section and tell me and everyone else what you think! You could win prizes just for joining the discussion!
