Last night marked the seventh week of the nation’s beloved Strictly Come Dancing. TV body language expert Judi James shared her thoughts on last night’s Strictly contestants.

The nine remaining celebrities in the competition each performed a new dance alongside their professional dancing partners.

AJ Odudu, who is known for co-presenting Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, scored a near perfect 39 points out of a possible 40.

AJ performed a Charleston with partner Kai Widdrington.

Notoriously harsh Craig Revel-Horwood was the only judge not to award her 10/10.

Dan and Nadiya chose to dance to MKTO’s Classic, receiving a score of 28/40.

Expert Judi praised Dan for unleashing the “Strictly Sizzle” this week.

She called it “one of his best to date”.

However, “his shirt remained tightly buttoned up to the Adam’s apple and he did insist on miming the words as he danced”.

Craig Revel-Horwood called Dan “vanilla”.

But the judge spoke too soon, with presenter and journalist Dan then making a tongue-in-cheek comment about how his bum has suffered while doing dance lifts.

Swimmer Adam and his partner Katya survived the dance-off last week after falling in the bottom two and last night they performed a Jive, scoring 27/40.

Judging his Jive, Judi commented: “Adam’s focus on his steps meant his sense of joy for the Jive never really put in an appearance and it led to some errors that could turn out to be fatal for a man who so easily could have won the competition.”

She added: “His anxiety reflected in Katya’s body language, too.”

This body language expert believes they have “lost their chemistry”.

With the swimmer making noticeable mistakes, his partner had to “resuscitate his lost confidence”.

Last night, Great British Bake Off 2012 winner John danced an emotional Rhumba with partner Johannes.

They received a score of 35/40 and even a standing ovation from Shirley Ballas.

At the end of the performance, Johannes nodded to John to let him know he had “done well”, and their “celebratory hugs, strokes and arm squeezes” moved the audience.

The professional dancer was close to tears.

Shirley even deemed the duo “class personified”.

Judi said their performance was “oozing with perfectly-acted signs of romance and suppressed passion that it felt that the glitz-fest of cheese that is Strictly had been suspended while we watched something truly classy and magical during the break”.
