Strictly Topless! Artem Chigvintsev Causes A Stir By Dancing With His Top Off!

It’s usually the gorgeous Strictly ladies with their toned stomachs and endless legs that gets everyone all hot under the collar, but this week it seems that Artem wanted a piece of the action! His weapon of choice? Those guns and that six pack!

Victoria Pendleton’s disastrous wardrobe malfunction a couple of weeks ago probably prompted Artem to go to extreme lengths to avoid a similar incident, and what better way to do this than to remove your clothes altogether- clever Artem!

Wearing black trousers, a chunky belt and not much else, Artem had the whole audience and the judges hypnotised with his impressive physique. Joker Len Goodman was clearly quite flustered as he compared Artem’s appearance with his own saying, “Artem, it’s like looking in a mirror!”

The performance also got Craig all hot and bothered too, as he declared “I was slightly distracted by Artem’s chest!” This prompted Artem to grab his discarded cape and try to cover himself up. This was then met with a chorus of boos from the disgruntled audience who were clearly enjoying the sight of the dancer’s muscles. When he then removed the cape, the appreciative audience cheered and an amused Craig could do nothing but laugh.

Bruce then grabbed the cape and announced that it was still warm!

However, despite Artem’s obvious charms, his and Fern’s Paso Doble to the song ‘Espana Cani’ failed to impress with Bruno saying that Artem looked like he was cleaning the floor with Fern.

Wearing a bright blue gown, Fern was dragged around on the floor quite a bit by Artem, a move reminiscent of 2008 contestant John Sergeant dragging Kristina Rihanoff in his Paso Doble attempt.

Despite scoring a rather average 24 points, Fern was clearly elated as this was her highest ranking so far in the competition. The former This Morning host also commented on how hard it was to concentrate on the dance with Artem so exposed- we can’t say we blame her!
