Strictly Come Dancing: Friday panel; Xmas Special

On the It Takes Two sofa; the Friday panel consisted of Miranda Hart (Security! Security!) June Whitfield and Alfie Boe, who genuinely didn't seem to know why he was there but soon got the hang of it. Brought it home, you might say. *groan*

They ran us through this week's dances, which are:

Salsa: Jamise - watch out for Shimmy Jimmy Jordan. Denise said that the American Smooth was the first time her mum has cried when watching them dance. Although she then added "but I wasn't feeling very well."

Samba: Michalie to Tequila. Good call! Hopefully his best Latin to date - what I saw looked Ok!

Argentine Tango: Kicky to Skyfall *fingers crossed*

Quickstep: Robisa and oh, how I cannot wait! Bring Me Sunshine, complete with Eric and Ernie tribute at the end we hope! My music choice for some time, in a so far unpublished list that may appear soon!

Charleston: Flouvia. "Reserved and wooden." As a natural dancer, Miranda was able to say that. It's not looking good. He'll nail the footwork but I think facial expressions figure highly in the technique on this one. And there weren't any in training.

Jive: Kisha. Wilson Pickett, Night of a Thousand Dances. Looking gooooood. "Alfie, do you like Girls Aloud?" "I have all their albums." "Do you?" "No." The lemur likes them; its picked them to top the leader board.

Viennese Waltz: Vani. Dean Martin. That's Amore. Vincent's looking in a mirror again.

Elsewhere, the Christmas Special cast list has been revealed!
Bobby Ball will partner a returning Katya Virshilas
Katy Brand will partner Anton du Beke
JB Gill (JLS) will partner Ola Jordan
Sheila Hancock will partner Ian Waite
Fabrice Muamba will partner Aliona Vilani

And returning for a group number will be former champions Tom Chambers (partnered by Kristina), Chris Hollins (Ola) and Natasha Kaplinksky (Ian), along with runners up Rachel Stevens (Vincent), Chelsee Healey (Pasha) Colin Jackson (Erin Boag). Kelly Brook will also take part, once again partnered by Brendan. And if that wasn't enough for you, Russell Grant and Ann Widdecombe will make guest appearances! Just what you want when you're vegging out after all that excess.


  1. Just wanted to say Scatty - did you know that the Strictly homepage has a load of links to your blog on it?! :o)

  2. Great, isn't it! The Blogger Buzz section picks me up :D It happened with the Voice too - I'm hoping DOI has something similar lol!
