EastEnders actor James Bye said he’s made a “lifelong friend” with dance partner Amy Dowden. He became the fifth celebrity voted out of Strictly Come Dancing.
The 38-year-old, who has played Martin Fowler on BBC One soaps since 2014, was caught in a terrifying dance-off with singer and broadcaster Fuller East after a Halloween-inspired live show.
Dressed as a beekeeper, Bye reprized Charleston to Bumblebee by Laverne Baker with professional partner Dowden dressed as a bee to impress the judges.
During Saturday’s show, Bye performed an unsuccessful lift during the dress rehearsal, but scored 27 for the routine, placing her at the bottom of the leaderboard.
The audience booed judge Anton, dubbed “The Phantom,” with Du Beke’s negative comments about “throwing” his partner off the lift instead of “taking her down.”
Meanwhile, East and her professional partner Vito Coppola performed a salsa routine to Beyoncé’s Break My Soul, while judge Motsi Mabuse showcased her power as a woman on the dance floor. praised.
After both couples had their second dance, the judges unanimously saved East and sent them home bye.
Craig Revell Horwood said it was his “responsibility” as a judge to “save better dancers” and Mabuse said “there are different levels of dance on the dance floor”.
Du Beke adds: They couldn’t reproduce their best performance, but I thought they didn’t have to be the best, they had to be better, and their performance was good enough. ”
Reflecting on his time on the show, Bai said:
“I’m dancing with Fuller East. I went and did my best, but she’s phenomenal.
“I had the best time on this show. I have a friend for life (Amy). All I can do is thank my family. And now I have a new family.”
“It’s a competition, but I don’t feel like it behind the scenes. Honestly, we all have each other’s backs and we want everyone to do their best!”
Dowden also praised her partner, stating:
“I am proud of you.”
The Consequences Show opened with a captivating routine performed by the Strictly experts and told the didactic story of Icarus.
There was also a performance by Japanese-born singer Rina Sawayama, who sang the single “This Hell”.
