I get your point Suffs but I can’t help being more impressed by people like Susan and Johnny who are learning and performing “from scratch”!

Oh yes, I'm impressed by them too ... love watching all of them ... think they all have their own journey ... the destinations may not be the same but the achievements are all huge :D

I'm amazed at Susan's stamina ... not so amazed at Johnny's stamina, that's a given, but his balance is incredible.

At Monday's Zumba class, someone (who appeared to be in the 'know') said that it was fixed for Aston to be voted out as he has a lucrative booking for a very rich Arab person ... ... Gossip ? Moi ? ;)

This year I'm supporting a dancer, rather than a Sleb which has never happened before!
My inappropriate crush on AJ.
Honestly my friends think it's hilarious, between him and Harry Styles, I'm blaming it on the fact that I'm about to turn 40 and having a crisis.
As for the Slebs, it would be lovely to see Debbie win, or Jonnie but I think Alexandra is more likely, though the fans seem to not like her soooooooo who knows really?
I'm loving watching though :D

I agree with Suffolk but there's something rather nice about the "story" (sorry :oops: ) when a complete beginner wins as Ore did last year

The only person I recognise is Debbie McGee :oops: :lol:

Personally I am waiting until next week when Kevin gets to do his paso double, he says that he has been trying to get it on Strictly for five years,

I'm a bit worried about Johnny having difficulty with the Blackpool sprung floor, but an ex competition dancer on GW forum assures me that the 'bounce' I've experienced when dancing on a sprung ballroom floor will have been much more than that felt by a single couple.

I do think it's a bit mean that he keeps getting pulled up for sticking his bum out, when he has no real ankle flexion so leg movements have to come from the hip.

I think that you could hear the collective gasp here in Cyprus when it was announced that Debbie McGee was in the elimination round.

I went right off Debbie McGee at that point (not that I care very much for her anyway). I don't think pouting is very attractive.

It’s pretty clear the judges will never vote against Debbie McGee in the dance-off. Johnny and Oti were better and made less mistakes imho.

We both thought that neither her music or her outfit did her any favours . there were mutterings next to me about mutton and lamb.

I didn't think Jonnie Peacock danced well, Craig was right to say it was stompy (but then I didn't like the routine)

Being positive, I thought Gemma was the stand out, the dress, the music and the performance all came together, it was lovely.

Someone on the car club forum has posted a YouTube video that he claims is more interesting than Strictly. It's a splodge of paint that is videoed drying...

I disagreed with him. But I don't stay in to watch it, but I don't mind it if it's on when I'm home.

I don't have a clue about dancing. I watch it purely for the wonderful band and singers. Such fab musicians. I used to play for Dave Arch's dad many years ago.
