This Strictly couple shun a romantic routine again as week five songs and dances are revealed

During last week's Strictly Come Dancing results show, comedian Seann Walsh and his professional partner Katya Jones were saved by the public after impressing with their Charleston routine.

The Strictly pair were previously caught kissing outside a pub in London, despite Katya being married to co-star Neil Jones and Seann being with his then-girlfriend of five years.

And it looks like the contestants are keen to avoid any more speculation as they’ve shunned a romantic dance once again this week and will be taking to the floor with a Quickstep.

Ditching sexier dances such as the Rumba or Tango, the pairing will instead attempt a light-hearted dance to Lightning Bolt, by Jake Bugg.

Meanwhile, one pair who will be getting close on the dance floor are Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev who will be doing the Rumba to Something About the Way You Look Tonight by Elton John.

Attempting to impress with the Samba is documentary maker Stacey Dooley and her partner Kevin Clifton who will be getting cheeky to Tequila by David Hirschfelder and The Bogo Pogo Orchestra. The popular couple topped the leaderboard with their Foxtrot last week, so they’ll be hoping to impress again.

Paralympian Lauren Steadman and professional AJ Pritchard are taking on the new category of ‘Couples’ Choice’ on Saturday and have picked a Contemporary style to Runnin’ (Lose It All) by Naughty Boy featuring Beyonce and Arrow Benjamin.

YouTube star Joe Sugg and his partner Dianne Buswell will be performing a Waltz to The Rainbow Connection by Sleeping At Last, so get ready to reach for the tissues!

And keeping things romantic, Steps legend Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice have chosen to take on the Foxtrot to Bruno Mars’ track Just The Way You Are.

While Capital FM DJ Vick Hope and Graziano Di Prima are practising for their Cha Cha to More Than Friends by James Hype feat Kelli-Leigh, actor Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden will be performing the equally lively Jive to Flip, Flop and Fly by Ellis Hall.

Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara will be attempting the notoriously difficult American Smooth to Wouldn’t it be Nice by The Beach Boys, and cricketer Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse are doing the Tango The Police’s classic Roxanne.

After narrowly avoiding elimination last week, ex-EastEnders actor Charles Venn and Karen Clifton will be hoping to impress the judges and audience with their Street and Commercial Couples’ Choice routine to Get Up Off That Thing by James Brown.

And finally, BBC newsreader Kate Silverton and Aljaz Skorjanec are going to be dancing the Viennese Waltz to Finally Mine by Juliet Roberts.
