This week on It Takes Two, we have learnt...

- Craig rehearsed his lines a lot for the baking-themed pro dance. All three of them.
- The Christmas cast is as follows: Sara Cox, Rochelle Humes, Elaine Paige, Rufus Hound, Ricky Norwood and Matt Goss.
- Abbey punched Aljaž hard in the face during rehearsals for the live show on Saturday.
- Susanna was very excited to be sat next to Mary Berry in make-up.
- The brown-haired floor manager is not as hot as the red-haired one.
- Ben always went by Kristina’s timing because he couldn’t hear the music properly.
- Ben is kind of relieved he never got to the stage where he had to learn two dances in one week. Kristina took the elimination slightly harder.
- Kristina’s favourite phrase is “…and again.”
- Kevin has no moves, flirting-wise.
- Susanna and Kevin want to be amazing and brilliant or a disaster, but not be somewhere mediocre in between.
- Zoe is more excited about Musicals Week than anyone.
- It looks like Anya’s foot stayed on the floor in the Viennese waltz after all. Craig has promised that if it turns out he really was wrong about that, he’ll make a national apology.
- Iveta only hears what she wants to hear when Craig is talking.
- Mark’s plan for the samba is to dress up in a head-to-toe tiger suit and replace himself with Pasha when nobody is watching. - The Viennese waltz was too fast for British people, so that’s why we adopted the normal waltz instead.
- Ola gets very excited when the voting lines open.
- Aljaž is happy if Abbey does her best and isn’t bothered about the score. That sound you just heard is Kristina choking on whatever she’s drinking right now.
- Abbey just can’t stop laughing. Although she’s probably due a bottom two appearance again soon, so that might cure her.
- Abbey’s nervous about this week because she’s so high. Er, in the air, that is.
- Robin is the pro who eats the most, while the two pros who are most addicted to their phones are Pasha (for the games) and Kristina (for communication).
- Karen Hauer’s favourite dance of the season so far is Patrick and Anya’s American smooth.
- Iveta’s dress for this week has a tail. Chances are Mark’s outfit will too.
- Natalie and Artem have amassed 300 hours of training so far.
- Natalie just can’t resist lip synching to ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’. She’s only human, to be fair.
- Deborah Meaden is the dancer that Darcey misses seeing the most.
- Sophie has seen some rumbas that have really freaked her out. Presumably this one is at the top of the list:

- The Viennese waltz was one of the dances that Patrick really wanted to do.
- Patrick started out doing am-dram musicals. He was Danny Zuko in Grease.
- Lucky the predictive pup tips Abbey and Aljaž will top the leaderboard this week. He obviously has more confidence in that training footage than we do.
- Aljaž looks like he should be presenting CBBC when he wears stripy jumpers.
- No one seems entirely sure of the lyrics to ‘You Should Be Dancing’ by the Bee Gees.
- Rufus Hound thinks Susanna will win, Victoria Silvstedt thinks Patrick, Aled Jones thinks Sophie and Brendan. I don’t really know what any of them said about anything else because this is the first time ever I’ve fast-forwarded through the Friday panel, since Rufus Hound was somehow worse than Biggins and Barrowman put together.

WHY?! Why would you inflict that on us... It's been nearly ten years and I've only just been able to scrub it from my brain.

That's the first time I've ever seen Vorderumba gods, pass the brain bleach.

I think it's important that we never forget it, if only to remind ourselves how far we've come.
