Strictly play-fighting for Pamela
Strictly Come Dancing star Pamela Stephenson crosses swords with her dance partner James Jordan - as they have a mock battle.
The pair, battling for a place in the final of the BBC One dance contest, used canes which had been part of their routine as makeshift blades as they cut a rug in rehearsals.
Pamela and James are learning to tackle a trio of dances for this weekend's semi-final.
Their repertoire will include swing, paso doble and quickstep. But the punishing demands of the practice sessions still left a little time for larking around - and fighting.
Pamela, 61, said: "Learning three dances in one week is certainly a new challenge. I'm doing my best to be focused so I had to let go and indulge myself with a bit of play-fighting.
"I have a feeling James is regretting the fact that he gave me what amounts to a weapon and I do like to use it to relieve the tensions."
The semis take place at 9pm tonight and 6pm tomorrow, with the results - and the all-important names of those making it to the final - on Sunday evening.
