Danniella came back fighting on Sunday after landing herself in the skate off for two consecutive weeks. Determined not to make it a third, Danniella unveiled a sexier alter ego, which the judges themselves said had disappeared in the past few weeks.
As it was prop week, Danniella was given a chair to perform with and , although it wasn't love at first sight, it was clear she quickly adapted to her partner.
Skating with partner Matthew Gonzalez to Roxette’s You Got The Look, Danniella was dressed in glasses, rhinestone bra and black mini skirt to fill the role of a sexy secretary.
Scoring the highest score of the night with 27.5 ahead of golden girl Hayley, Danniella wowed the judges.
The performance even managed to give Emma goose bumps (is this one word) and was her second favourite routine of the series. Emma told an elated Danniella: “This is only the second time I’ve had goose bumps through this whole series. It was so brilliant. The no-fear, sexy, fun Danniella is back. Your lines are getting better and better every week. You’re strong and it always feel so effortless. I loved it.”
Robin felt the routine was fantastic, saying: “I have to say even sitting down your feet were crossed, pointed as much as you can. You took care of every detail of you body no matter where it was – whether it was on the char; with Matt or on the ice that’s what this is all about – the complete package.”
Karen loved Danniella’s routine and had seen it develop through the week: “I watched the routine grow and character develop all week. Your acting skills went hand in hand with your skating skills and the result was brilliant. Fantastic. Loved it.”
After landing a place in next weeks semi final, Danniella will be skating for survival in the hope of reaching the final of this years skating extravaganza.
