Had there been an award for congeniality in the history of South African television, Brenda Ngxoli would have won it hands down.

Her personality has perched her high on the pedestal of public affection during this season of Strictly Come Dancing.

But her joking attitude wasn't in sync with her focus on the game and even though she spent her entire stay in the competition drenched in the popularity advantage, the sun went down on her last week.

Her incorporation of the Ngwazi dance style into the township jive, in which all couples participated, made her the darling of the show, but only for a while. Judges thought her time was up. Only Tyrone, known to be the meanest judge, gave her a thumbs up but there was no stopping her falling star.

The leader of the pack is television presenter Trevor Noah. If his star can be trusted, I would bet money on it that he is going to walk away with the prize. He is brilliant and his footwork has been praised by the judges. Only Watkins thought Noah has no natural rhythm.

A format change for this new season means that from episodes two through to seven, once all the couples have performed, two couples at the bottom of the scoreboard - enter into a dance-off where they dance again. Only then will the judges get to cast the deciding vote!
