Caroline Quentin and Johannes Radebe’s Paso Doble was considered “reserved” and “safe” by the judges. And when it was the turn of Shirley Ballas to give her feedback, she gave the actress a stark warning for next week, should she make it through week two of Strictly Come Dancing.
Shirley said: “I thought for an intermediate Paso Doble – so it’s not the beginner level, it’s not the most advanced level, you played it a little bit safe and went with the middle.
“I thought the expression was really quite nice, I thought the shaping was quite nice for the level of which you danced.
“But, moving forward, you are never, ever going to look bad, no matter what you do – you haven’t got the capabilities to look bad.
“You’re graceful and you’re charming.
“But you do need to come out of your comfort zone,” she remarked.
“You need to come out and I think there’s a wild fire inside that tummy there, and I think it’s just wanting to get out, but you’re just a little bit nervous about what other people think.
“I wouldn’t worry about that, with this young man – who’s a total performer, I would go for it darling,” Shirley added.
Craig Revel Horwood commented: “It definitely needed a little bit more shape through the body I thought, it’s a little bit too placed and polite – in this dance, you can’t do that, you need to really attack it and that’s what it needed.
“You have every facility there my darling…next time come out and actually kill it,” He said.
As for what Motsi Mabuse thought, she told Caroline and Johannes: “I have to say I just love the way you use your hands – I think it’s so beautiful and my favourite part was when you took your dress.
“You have such class in every movement you had.
“I feel like today, it was a little bit careful, you have no reason to be careful, it’s in you, you have to deliver, more shapes, exaggerate everything,” she remarked.

“I was really looking forward to doing some of that Latin dance, but I have to say it’s much harder than it looks on the tele, it’s really difficult,” Caroline said when she joined Claudia Winkleman upstairs.
As for Johannes, this was the first time he got to teach the Paso Doble on Strictly Come Dancing.
“Did you love teaching Caroline?” Claudia asked and he replied: “I absolutely loved every minute of it, and I just want to say, that was beautiful!”
Nevertheless, Caroline was awarded 21 points, the same as last weeks American Smooth.
But what did the fans think?
Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “I really adore Caroline & Johannes, they have such a great partnership and she just needs to come out of her shell a bit more and she’d be even more fabulous.”
“I think @quentyquestions & @jojo_radebe might just be my couple of this series! Love you guys!!!” Another remarked.
Someone else wrote: “Caroline and Johannes I mean wow what a dance ! Loved it.”
Tomorrow, one celebrity contestant and their professional dance partner will leave the competition.
After battling it out on the dance floor this evening, a public vote will open and the most popular will be saved.
The two with the least amount of votes will go head to head in a dance-off, and the judges will save who they think performed the best.
Who is set to leave the nation’s favourite dance show after just two weeks?
