How can I watch this? I tried a search and it looks like I have to get access on BBC. Is that right? Apologies, ellieBOA, I understand this is not actually your problem.

That’s ok! The BBC iPlayer site blocks VPNs, I can only watch it with torrents.

Oh Damian, Damian, Damian ... I was so sorry to see him leave. I've loved his cheeky banter, and over the weeks, his skills have definitely improved. But what's let him down in the made-to-measure challenges several times is his lack of fashion knowledge. The dress he made bore no resemblance to anything seen in Dreamgirls. I think if someone had said to him 'make a dress for Shirley Bassey', he'd have got it right for the Dreamgirls challenge.

Rebecca's dress was glorious and I'm so very glad she got the win she deserved.

I was glad to see Damian go, he was constantly half-assing things and trying to pass it off as being creative or rebellious. I did not find him charming at all!

And while I was happy to see Rebecca so excited to get garment of the week, I really thought Raph’s outfit was so much more exciting and cool. That feather trim with the gold leaf!
