Strictly Come Dancing 2016 – Week 8 Discussion/Poll

It’s week 8 and Blackpool is in sight. But before the 8 remaining couples can head off to the bright lights of Blackpool they have to survive one more week.

Who deserves a pass to the tower? And who shouldn’t bother packing their bucket and spade? You can let me know your thoughts on that or anything else to do with this week’s Strictly right here in the comments section or by heading on over to Facebook or Twitter (please remember to tag @davejthorp and include #StrictlySpoiler on Twitter)

Each time you join the discussion you earn an entry into the weekly prize draw to win a £20 amazon UK voucher. And you could even win a Kindle Fire Tablet at the end of the month. Full details about the competition and all the ways you can get involved can be found here.

Once all the couples have danced tonight a poll will open for you to tell me who your favourites are. This series is wide open and different couples have been winning most weeks unlike last series where one couple dominated the polls. Could your favourite top the poll this week? Only if you vote in the poll for them!
