    For those of you who follow Strictly Come Dancing, or those of us who have spouses who do (and thus there’s no escape) - Fiona Fullerton is this year's first confirmed signing...

    Thanks for extending the whole damned thing by several weeks for me...

    Ah, who am I kidding, I always develop a fondness for some contestant or other. And Ola.

    Please tell me Ola is still on it this year...

    I'll cope somehow. There may be 'difficult' moments, but I'm sure I'll tough it out...

    Glad Ola's still there, though I will miss Aliona.

    So a Bond girl, expect her to have to dance to some Bond track if she stays in long enough.

    I still reckon there'll be a Who connection given the 50th, and my money all along has been on Davison, with Louise Jameson or maybe Freema as other potential choices.

    I gather Abbey Clancy (apparently a "celebrity" for being married to some footballist) is also now signed.

    Is that Peter Crouch's wife? (She's a model I believe)

    Outstanding. Someone I have some empathy with.

    I do, however, look a hell of a lot more like Bill Bailey.

    I wish he would do it !

    At least I've heard of her.

    There are 15 pairs this year - the most ever.

    Blimey that is a lot!

    It is always interesting to see who I've heard of and who I haven't.

    I wonder what hilarious comedy pairing Anton will get this year?

    I suspect that'll be the introduction/pairing off/group dance show with the show proper starting a couple of weeks later after the pairings have practice time?

    Yeah, though they might not have a gap in between since there are three more couples than usual

    Golfer Tony Jacklin is the second celeb revealed. Apparently all the rest will be revealed Monday (so expect them to be revealed in a Sunday newspaper...)

    I'm pretty sure he'll regenerate...

    Tess and Claudia do a good job on his weeks off...plus every year loads of people complain about him being too old/not funny etc.
