Tumble - Show Three.

Week three at Tumble HQ brought more twists and turns than a day at Thorpe Park, along with two brand new challenges: trampolines and ribbons.

This week each of the remaining celebrities had to master either rhythmic gymnastics or using a trampoline in their routines. After a lively opening number (with very colourful balls) it was time to Tumble.

The ‘trampolinists’ went first followed by the ‘rhythmics.’  Here’s what happened on the show-floor.

Carl Froch and Sita Bhuller

Music: Bamboleo (Gypsy Kings)

Summary in ten words: Spanish bullfight, lots of jumping but some clumsy landings.

Judges score: 29.5/40
Our score: 28/40

‘H’ from Steps and Holly Johnstone

Music: Feel So Close (Calvin Harris)
Costumes: Holly: Lilac floral leotard. H: Lilac top and floral short with face paint.

So Bobby came top closely followed by John Partridge but it was Emma who was now left to face Amelle in the dreaded vault-off.

Whilst they prepared, we were treated to girl band The Saturdays performing a medley some of their greatest hits and dancing with some fit topless male gymnasts somersaulting around them.

Vault off no. 1 – Amelle Barrabah

A speedy run up, good take off, round-off vault landed straight down the middle with very little wobble.

Vault off no. 2 – Emma Samms

A solid run up, well executed take off, confident straddle jump and landed immaculately.

Judge Nina Comaneci had the deciding vote once more and opted to save Amelle after saying Emma’s vault was less impressive.

Emma Samms therefore became the second celeb to leave the competition and was presented with a bouquet by Ivan and her coach Phil.  Fair play to the lady – she did herself very proud during her stint on the show and her pointe ballet routine last week was stunning!

Crikey - these women are dropping like flies! We’re thinking the playing field may be evened out next week as the first male contestant is voted out. Who’s with us?
