Rocket no 'has-bean'

Rocket rode his way to Dance Off 2014 glory in a competition dubbed 'beans-gate'.

Now six-time winner Rocket, resplendent in Hawaiian shirt, successfully defended his title with a boogie board routine that - to the surprise of some - contained little actual boogieing but did see him catch a wave on the backs of the in-house Reading fans.

His success was tinged with more controversy after Franky ended his routine with a bucket of beans on his head, the sauce dripping onto the dance-floor making it impossibly slick.

In the words of the on-looking David Seaman, "It made it very, very slippery" for each of the remaining Dance Off competitors.

One of those was the tutu-sporting Lee Wood - the first ever member of public to take part in the competition - whose 'Belly Elliot' ballet routine came badly unstuck in the greasy conditions.

"I feel sorry for Lee, really - I don't think he had a chance," admitted Rocket following his victory over Lee, who nonetheless finished second ahead of Jamie, who came third in his first ever Dance Off with a Vincent Tan masterclass.

Lee also won the sympathy of Bob Mortimer, who mused: "I think he had a lot more to give."

Rocket remained gracious but said he would only consider having six stars tattooed on his chest despite promising Helen earlier in the day that he would if he won again.

The Dance Off - to Calvin Harris' remix of Fat Boy Slim's 'Eat Sleep Rave Repeat' - featured several surprise guest appearances as Mortimer teamed up with Dave, Game Changers' Darren Campbell rapped alongside Franky and Lisa was joined by, er, many, many Lisas.

But in the end it was Rocket who proved he's no has-bean by winning the viewers' vote.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
