Elizabeth Berkley Leah Remini Corbin Bleu Derek Hough Jack Osbourne

It's half-way through the season of Dancing With the Stars: the dances are becoming more complex, the stars are stressed and the competition is fiercer. With eight competitors left at the beginning of last night's (Monday, 21 October) episode and a cruel clause added to panic even the coolest of celebrities, who was eliminated this week?

The judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, decided a "Switch Up" improvisation dance should be added in order for the competitors to gain extra points.

Shock Elimination On 'Dancing With The Stars' Leaves The Race Wide Open


Christina Milian Leah Remini Corbin Bleu Jack Osbourne Paris Hilton Elizabeth Berkley Amber Riley Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars entered week five when it aired on Monday, 14 October, and almost immediately host Tom Bergeron put the pressure on at least half of the contestants as he revealed that "one of our female stars will be eliminated tonight" due to last weeks voting. The pressure was on the ladies to deliver, as the latest instalment saw the remaining celebs remember the 'The Most Memorable Year of Their Life,' and perform a dance routine that explains it best.

With Len Goodman back from London and in his judge's seat after a weeks absence, he, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli cast their critical eye over the remaining contestants danced to the sounds of 1982, all the way to the present day. And before we move on to the dances, now would be a good time to say that one of next season's contestants may have already revealed themselves. Paris Hilton was in the stands cheering on pal Christina Milian, and when asked whether she could give the show a go she said, I can dance, but I can't dance like her! I could try it out one time, maybe."

First up to bat was Corbin Bleu, whose years of choice was 2011. It was chosen as his 'most memorable year'because it was the year his younger sister, Phoenix, was diagnosed with severe scoliosis. The now-12-year-old still has to wear a back brace because of the condition and Bleu dedicated his foxtrot to the girl who is "such an inspiration" to himself. And what a start to get the show under way, as Bruno declared, "You could be the lost child of Fred Astaire and Ben Vereen," before showing him a 10. Len and Carrie gave out 9's each. A Great start to get the ball rolling.

Valerie Harper's Doctor: Her Brain Cancer Is "Close To Remission"


Valerie Harper Leah Remini

Valerie Harper has defied the odds and is "close to remission", the 74-year-old actress and her doctor revealed on the Today show. This does not mean the cancer is cured as nothing, at this stage, is certain. Her doctor said "the problem is that any minute this can change", further explaining by stating that patients "develop resistance to the therapy and it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when." This means that Harper may be able to continue long after her predicted three to six months to live.

The actress was diagnosed in January with terminal brain cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy combined with acupuncture and Chinese tea. Harper has overcome one form of cancer, of the lung, in 2009.
