Thank you for your tips/encouragement MTG

However, I reckon that the only type of dancing I could do nowadays is Belly dancing.

I don't think that getting left and right mixed up, and tending to fall over my own feet would come into it somehow.

Plus ..... I have got the belly +++ for it!

Actually I would love to dance with Anton. He is my favourite!

Be like Jimmy Cricket, Tess.

Paint L and R on your wellies.

I'm off on hols on Saturday and have been trying to put it on record


MotownGal Report 27 Sep 2012 20:22 are quite right Ann.

I was looking at NEXT weeks TV Times. lol

Got all hot under the collar thinking about it............wishing my life away.

From the reports in the papers, Anton is not getting much work done, too many fag breaks apparently.

Victoria is training for 30 hours a week, whereas the rest are training for about 12 hours.................competitive?

OK kids, back to the sequins.


Julia Report 28 Sep 2012 08:10

Good job Ann reminded us, and I doubled checked in the Radio Times. I'd have been sat with me frock on for a week, getting ready to start. Would have had to do me gardening and housework all dressed up and nowhere to go. Could even have been take to A & E as per normal. That would have given them something to talk about, wouldn't it.

PS Good Morning to Everyone


MotownGal Report 28 Sep 2012 08:39

Gooooood Morning Julia.

I've picked up the clanger I dropped last night! lol

Stop Press. Johnny Ball and his partner may not take part in the first few shows. They were practicing a few moves, and poor Alliona fractured a bone in her foot, and is now on crutches. They are looking for a new partner for Johnny for the first shows.

Bring back Karen for him!!

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


MotownGal Report 4 Oct 2012 20:07

Just a reminder [with the CORRECT date this time!]

Strictly is on tomorrow evening.

First of the contestants to dance with their partners, and then on Saturday, the second crowd with their partners.

Just finished my dress, over 10,00 crystals have been sewn on with loving care.

Got my silver dancing shoes lightly scuffed underneath so I dont fall on me btm.

I am ready to go.....................See you on the dancefloor tomorrow.

One, two, cha cha cha. One, two, cha cha cha!!

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D


MotownGal Report 5 Oct 2012 08:30

Am I the ONLY one getting ready for tonight?

I applied my fake tan last night, so this morning I look and smell like a ginger nut biscuit.

Never mind, when I do the fandango you will never notice.

:-D :-D


Mauatthecoast Report 5 Oct 2012 11:08

I'll be there wouldn't miss it :-D
Johnny Ball was interviewed this morning with 32-year-old Iveta Lukosiute,who will replace Aliona who has fractured her ankle,( although Johnny said she hadn't she had just hurt it :-S )

Soo tonight 9.00..... Cha Cha Cha :-D

Ciao :-D


MotownGal Report 5 Oct 2012 20:01

Just trying to get my hair up into a topknot. Loads of lacquer then a few spangles to bring out the highlights. Aaaah lovely, dont look bad even though I say so myself! :-D

In the newspaper this morning, there was a small precis on all the contestants, apparently JH has been throwing a strop, and expecting special treatment..

Brings on the gladiators. :-D :-D

Only an hour to go, best foot forward.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 6 Oct 2012 03:46

Poor Victoria ... at least she carried on to the end and didn't run off the floor.

Michael Vaugha was better than I expected him to be, mind you, that isn't saying much.

Only six couples tonight (Friday) so there will be eight tomorrow.
Will be watching again, really looking forward to it.


MotownGal Report 6 Oct 2012 08:36

Sooo, for all my encouraging others, I missed most of it. Son came around with his gel, her flat had rain coming into it. So we had to go and help out!

I saw that both Fern and Victoria 'lost their way' with their footwork, and that was as far as I got!

Nevermind, I can catch up on i-player, and then look forward to tonight.

God I can't believe how much I enjoy this show, why did I only start watching it last year...

Didnt see all the dances but what I did see

Jerry Hall must of dance 12 steps only through out her rountine whilst Anton slid and threw himself about like he was on whiz... she did do a lot of posing though sadly that ant dancing.
Sid Owen ...was better than I thought he'd be.
Danny Something....even I noticed that when she kicked out her leg she had naughty toes not pointy...
Lisa Riley....was brill she gave it all...
Richard Critic...boring
but the worse has to be Jonny Ball.... but he did smile all the way through it
Louie Smith.......was a bit stiff and I had to laugh as he wore his concentrating face throughout.....

Loved the judges ...Darcy is abit obsessed with her core though

:-D :-D :-D


MotownGal Report 6 Oct 2012 20:04

wow wow wow!!!!!!!

Lisa Riley was brilliant! She gave it some gusto, and by golly she got top marks.

Thought the show tonight was better than what little I saw last night.

All the couples finished their dances, then climbed the stairs together, and held onto each other while the scores were being decided.

Except Flavia and Louis, did anyone else notice that?

Jerry Hall did an impressive walk around the floor I thought.
:-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 6 Oct 2012 20:11

Dani Harmer Hayley :-D

Jonny Ball may not have a hope of winning it but if I have half his energy at that age I won't complain.
Lisa was brilliant...totally agreed with Craig's assessment.

Btw core strength is important :-D

Have to admit watching it last night I couldn't help thinking it was a pleasure to watch Colin Salmon's partner do the cha cha.
