Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

I love Strictly but there's something about this year's line up that isn't doing it for me. I'm just not as interested as in previous years *smacks self around head*.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

Well sometimes it takes a while. Often I warm to people I'd never heard of, or to people I had preconceived notions about. Lisa Riley last year for example, she was great--not good enough to win but good enough to get as far as she did. Harry Judd's another one.

^ You're right, of course, Starkers. I'm sure that I'll get into it as it gets warmed up. I'm interested to see how Deboarah Meadon gets on, actually.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

Why do they bother with the fakeness of "let's see who youre paired with", followed by long pauses a la masterchef, when they then admit "you've all been dancing with your partners for the last couple of days..."

What the fuck have they put Vanessa Feltz in? Urg...
They'd put Fiona Fullerton in a terrible outfit as well. In fact, in general, they overly make up the ladies so they look like they've all had bad plastic surgery- the girl from countdown was a lot nicer in the behind-the-scenes chat, for example

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

The spray tan/tons of makeup thing is off putting. Countdown girl is naturally gorgeous (and I'm not very fond of blondes).

Strictly has shown in the past that it can really dress its older female contestants well, and those with a more generous figure so I don't know what it was thinking with the dresses for Fiona Fullerton, Vanessa Feltz and Deborah Meaden this time. Some truly dreadfull stuff going on there! Susannah Reid's wasn't too bad, on the other hand. Less said about Tess' the better. I've never liked a single thing that woman has ever worn!!

Did they admit that on the actual show ‘cos I don’t remember it being mentioned? Or did you mean that because it was recorded from a few days ago they’ve been dancing with their celeb’s for a few days before the rest of us found out?

The spray tans and makeup come with the territory, as for the outfits they’ve always been a bit wayward and have dressed some people better than others and oft times the dressers have got better at dressing particular people the longer they’re in the show. The outfitd were a bit poor in this one. Tess usually looks good in most things but I didn’t like her dress in this one at all.

Anyway a few comments.

Vanessa Feltz and James Jordan…They’ll kill each other, or possible they’ll team up and kill Craig, I’m not sure which way they’ll go yet. I don’t think they’ll be around very long.

Nice to see Aliona back but she won’t be around for long.

Ola will be around way longer than her husband this year!

The girl out of Corrie looks good already

I predict Anton will probably get further than he has in a long time…

Rachel Reily looks like a rabbit in headlights, I hope the nerves don’t get to her

A lot of the new dancers (male and female) seem a bit bland and samey at the moment. I think the show’s gonna miss Vincent and Flavia and Erin (and Natalie, in particular they no longer seem to have a tall girl which is a bugger for some of the male celebs.

Tony, Deborah or Vanessa to be the first celeb out. I think Mark Warren might be a surprise package though.

And who I’d put my money on at the moment? Sophie Ellis Bextor and Brendan (always assuming they don’t end up hating each other within 5 minutes…)

Yes they did. Tess actually said that in the show.

Agree with all the above. Especially the new dancers. There are two brunette Latin specialists, and I swear I can't tell them apart at the moment. Give it a few more weeks.

Can't see Jacklin surviving long.

Feltz and Jordan are going to be Craig catnip. And give as good as they get. Panto season comes early this year.

Deborah Meaden may be a bit of a dark horse. Ditto Fullerton (and that will be good for Anton).

Rachel Riley...bless. . Hope she proves the naysayers wrong.

I suspect Sophie will buckle down like a pro and surprise people. She has the innate grace and poise; just needs the technique. Three weeks to go...

Oh I thought it was just that they'd all been dancing with the pros already but not with a specific partner.

Ratings are in, and Strictly *narrowly* beats X Factor, by about 100,000 viewers.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

Thank fuck Tony Jacklin's out - he did fuck all. Brucie's 15 years older and does more dancing on the show. Now if the fashion designer, Vanessa Feltz and Mark Benton go out next, in roughly that order, I won't feel like booting in the telly...

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

I always feel sorry for the people who get knocked out first week, because you really haven’t had enough time to get any kind of feel for it, but clearly Jacklin was making up the numbers and probably was always likely to be a very early departure. I’m only really sorry because it means less Aliona from now on.

Feltz surprised me with her waltz but suspect that’ll be the high point, and Julian McDonald’s just too bow legged to ever be any good so I think you’re right there. I’d disagree about Mark Benton though, for a big bloke he can actually dance and I think he’ll be around for a while.

I still can’t get over how awesome Sophie Ellis Bextor’s Charleston was.

I do think they’ve made a bit of an error in their choices this year. I think very few of the men are likely to make it very far, in fact I’d say now only Ashley has a shot at the final (I know it’s early days.) and maybe Patrick.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing 2013

Sophie was all kinds of fabulous. More than a bit gorgeous too.

I used to have a bit of a thing for her Mom, but that just shows my age...
