Let’s Dance For Sport Relief 2012 – Episode 2
Today’s post will be a tad different from last week’s, since ‘something’ happened that shocked the nation… Well, sort of. I’ll leave you with these two excerpts.
Alex Jones and Steve Jones present the dance competition, which sees some of Britain’s best-known comedians, TV personalities and sports stars brave the lycra and give their all in the name of dance for Sport Relief.
Competing in this show are The Only Way Is Essex stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbridge; comedian and Rev star, Miles Jupp; ex-Olympian Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards; and comedienne Ava Vidal.
On hand to cajole and critique the acts is a comedy panel featuring the outlandish Vic Reeves and Let’s Dance winner Rufus Hound. Plus exclusive performances from Brit nominee Ed Sheeran and Alexandra Burke.

Tonight saw the second helping of Let’s Dance For Sport Relief with some very embarrassing moments and lots of cheesy dancing and even Alice Barry unexpectedly grabbing Steve Jone’s crotch on live television.
A total of five acts performed a range of iconic dance routines, however only two acts could go through to the live finals. Host Steve Jones revealed that ski jumping champion Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards became the first contestant to secure his place in the finals after receiving the most public votes, with his Austin Powers performance.
This then left former TOWIE stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge facing Miles Jupp in front of the judging panel, waiting for them to vote on who they wanted to see dance again in the final.

When speaking about Amy and Harry’s routine, Rufus Hound said: “I’ve often wondered what it would be like if you gave Dennis the Menace Orville’s haircut and too much blue smarties and now the nation knows. I am filled with nothing but respect, that was phenomenal!”
This means that Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards and Miles Jump will be joining EastEnders actresses Tameka Empson and Laurie Brett and comedian Terry Alderton in the live finals of Let’s Dance For Sport Relief in three weeks time.
