The Greatest Dancer was back on BBC One tonight with another instalment of solo contestants and dance troupes battling it out for a space in the callbacks. 

During the episode, viewers tuned in to see Company Jinks perform a commercial routine, which wowed the audience and earned them the much needed 75 per cent of votes. 

As the studio mirror doors opened, their dancing was greeting by an erupted cheer from the audience and each one of the dance captains were on their feet. 

However, once the performance had finished, it was time for the captains to give their feedback, which is when Oti issued a warning to Cheryl. 

First to commented was Oti and she said: “That was mind-blowing. 

“It was crisp, you hit every beat, I would love to work with you,” she added. 

It was Cheryl’s turn next and she remarked: “The levels of clean-ness, the legs, bam, bam, bam,” as she punched the air. 

“You have really set the bar now for this competition. And I see you in my final three.” 

As for Matthew Morrison, he discussed the technical elements displayed in their dance. 

“Choreography was stunning, it was raw and emotional. It was everything dance should be. You’re going to the callbacks!” he exclaimed. 

The dance group then left the stage and the cameras panned to the captains who were discussing how hard it was going to be for them to choose between all the dancers and groups for their final selection. 

“This is going to be so difficult to cut down to the final nine in the callbacks,” Oti explained. 

Matthew added: “I’m scared of what’s to come, with the three of us.” 

Sensing the fierce competition and rivalry between each other, Oti remarked: “I got you, I got you Matthew,” before joking: “Now let’s sort Cheryl out.” 

Surprised by Oti’s response, Cheryl just laughed before the pair were seen making their hands into fists and putting up a boxer’s stance. 


“Babe, babe,” Oti began as she sized her rival judge up, whilst Matthew sitting in the middle just said: “How about you two kill each other and I’ll have the scraps!” 

But Oti, showing she was serious about winning the show, stood up on her chair and Cheryl did the same. 

Viewers then saw the pair pretending to punch one another across Matthew before high-fiving and laughing about the situation. 

As for Company Jinks, they were ecstatic to make it through to the next round and said: “We were so happy that Oti and Cheryl said that they would both like to work with us, which is amazing coming from such amazing dancers.” 

The Greatest Dancer returns next Saturday at 8pm on BBC One.
