Radio and TV personality Kuli Roberts and partner Sylvester Sefotlhelo are the second couple to be eliminated on Strictly Come Dancing on SABC3.

They pair failed to convince the judges following the dreaded dance off against TV presenter Graeme Richards and Lindsey Muckle.

Having survived last week’s dance off, Kuli and Sylvester had to put on a much improved showing with their Rumba. The judges may have been impressed by the change in attitude but their lack of technique let them down, again. The show saw the couples take on a variety of dances, and for the first time this season, the bouncy Jive with its myriad kicks took its bow. Inspired by African – Americans, the Jive is a lively and uninhibited variation of Swing dance. Also performed were the popular Foxtrot and Rumba as well as the technical Viennese Waltz. Favourites Thapelo Mokoena and Hayley Bennet took to the ballroom floor with a jailhouse inspired Jive that oozed of creativity. Having missed last week due to illness, Mpho Popps and Nombulelo Hlathi showed no rust by putting on a flavourful, spirited and fun Jive that bowled the judges over.

Connie Ferguson and Brandon Eilers did not take part this week due to a family bereavement.

Catch Strictly Come Dancing airs on SABC3 every Wednesdays from 20:00 to 22:00.
