The Waterloo Road actress produced a Shrek inspired performance on Movie night, leaving the judges and audience delighted with what they saw from her and professional dance partner Pasha Kovalev.
Dancing to ‘I’m A Believer’, the duo topped the leader board with 39 points. With Chelsee dressed up as Princess Fiona, the pair combined humour, entertainment and dancing skill perfectly to lead the way.
Speaking about the performance, Alesha Dixon said: “Chelsee and Shrek, you look amazing. Pasha. It was cute, it was fun, it was punchy, it was playful… you found your dance, this was incredible.”
Fellow judge Bruno Tonioli added: “I loved the routine, you need to pick your knees up a little bit more… But it was incredible.”
Head judge Len Goodman said that if Chelsee didn’t make it through this evening, he will ‘pickle my walnuts!’ Basically, he fully expects the young actress to get enough public votes to progress.
Elsewhere, Holly Valance was only one point behind Chelsee. The Australian actress put in her best performance for a few weeks to score 38.
After clearly enjoying Holly’s performance to ‘Zorro’s Theme’, Alesha said: “I was routing for you. your arms and your hands were superb. You were working it and in character. You stepped it up.”
Although the female celebrities were leading the way last night, Jason Donovan and Harry Judd were also impressive scoring 37 and 36 respectively. Alex Jones then scored 34, while Robbie Savage – who is in danger of being given the boot – scored 30.
The standard is extremely high going into tonight’s results show. Robbie is the favourite to leave, followed by Alex, but these two are extremely popular with the public so anything can happen!
The Strictly Come Dancing results show is on our TV screens tonight at 7.25pm.
