Congratulations to Janette & Aston

Well done to Janette & Aston for winning the Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Christmas special.


This was the most unexpected moment and caused such a controversy. Aston was one that was predicted to go to final and was a potential winner. The dance that Week was certainly not their best but he had been doing so well, especially compared to mollie at the time who had been in the dance off before hand. But still it is what it is and it was nice to see mollie get all the way to the semi finals and improve so much.

The winner of the BEST MAKEUP goes to ASTON & JANETTE

Their makeup was so detailed and gothic and fit so well with the dance. Janette’s especially was absolutely beautiful. Well done o the makeup team who always pull out the stops when it comes to the themed weeks and Halloween is defiantly one of the best weeks for breathtaking makeup.

This dance was so creative and fun. It was performed so well and was definitely one of Aston’s best. The opening was fantastic and really set the scene and that was carried the whole way through the dance.

The best of Aston Merrygold

Aston & Janette – Viennese Waltz – 25 (4,7,7,7)

Wasn’t Aston’s best dance I think he struggled with the ballroom dances especially his frame. However this dance did not deserve a four I don’t think Craig was watching the same dance as everybody else. It was sad to see him as I really thought he could go all the way and had so much more to prove.

What a shock to see Aston & Janette leave the competition, I think it was way to early he still had so much potential and was doing so incredibly well. Their dance this week wasn’t the best and it really shows that no one is safe in the competition now. It was nice to see the risky choreography from Janette this year and I agree with what she said about Aston being the only one talented enough for her to take those risks. They brought a unique modern feel to all their dances and will be greatly missed.

I need to see something different here – none of that popping and locking or hip hop stuff! It’s nice to see a proper traditional dance with proper content and none of this modern stuff. I personally thought there was too much faffing at the start but apart from that it seems pretty decent in terms of posture, content and the flow of it all! I didn’t see the usual confidence within Aston and maybe thats a good thing but it didnt seem as slic as normal! He did have a good posture and nice solo work but there wasn’t the precision I like in fleckles!

Aston & Janette – Paso Doble – 38 (9,10,9,10)

Such a packed routine from Jannette but she is really showing some brilliant choreography this year. Aston did so well with maintaining the shaping and strength through out the dance. The middle section with Aston on the platform was incredible to watch and the shaping he created when he jumped off was so unexpected. However, I would like to see some more traditional routines from Aston and Jannette as I feel like then we could see the all round dancer he has the potential to be.
