Thanks GeordieinNorfolk,

Beth seems to be a lovely young woman. She stayed so calm when criticised by that Jason too.

I reckon that it must have been quite close, 'cos as you say, the actor was an excellent skater.


GinN Report 14 Mar 2013 13:56

Beth Tweddle!
I think it was the popular vote, as the bloke from Eastenders (can't remember his name) was a superb skater, but the public love Beth.

And the winner is .......................... ???


GlitterBaby Report 24 Feb 2013 16:26

Props week

Not my favourite but a lot will depend on what they are given to skate with

I do hope Samia goes this week


GlitterBaby Report 17 Feb 2013 13:07

Is it team challenge week this Sunday ?


AnninGlos Report 11 Feb 2013 14:06

He could do a toothpaste add with that smile. I never used to like him much years back but he does try and he has improved. To be fair Jo had improved. Samia looks lovely when being manhandled by her partner, and he is very talented but she is all about ballet type postures, lovely figure, lovely arm movements and makes it look romantic but she can't skate well enough.

A lot of people do watch corrie and I guess they are the ones voting Tess. :-)


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 11 Feb 2013 14:03

The judges marked Samia higher than Keith. So perhaps down to them that he was in the skate off and not her.

I don't watch Corrie, so didn't know about her bbefore now.

I had seen Keith C. many times on tv in the dim and distant past and frankly didn't take to him.

However, he has won me round with his attitude, determination and hard work.


AnninGlos Report 11 Feb 2013 09:54

As it is a public vote and as Samia is in Corrie and very likeable, people will vote for her which is what keeps her in. She has no confidence though which is why she doesn't skate on her own much. Beth is much more confident and a stronger contestant. Gareth too is good. Joe was entertaining but he needed to go.

I had hoped Samia would go this evening, and Joe next week.


GlitterBaby Report 10 Feb 2013 22:46

Did Jason and Ashley watch the same show that I did.

Could not believe the marks they gave for Beth and Dan.

Garth and Beth gave the best performances.

When is Samia going to skate more on her own as she was not better than Keith and he ended up in the bottom two.

So right result tonight with Joe finally going as I was getting fed up with his "jokes"

Next week should be good


AnninGlos Report 3 Feb 2013 22:03

Same old thing of people voting for the ones they like rather than the ones most proficient. Samoa is on Corrie and Joe makes people laugh.


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 3 Feb 2013 21:20

Yes, I agree it should have been Joe and Samia in the skate off.

Rose, I never vote and don't usually have a particular favourite until the last 2/3 shows when I find myself leaning towards one of the skaters more than the other's. I do agree with you that people assumed they were safe though. This was Shane's best week too.


GlitterBaby Report 3 Feb 2013 21:16

Should have been Joe and Samia in the dance off

Three skated well tonight - Matt, Gareth and Beth.

Rambling Rose Report 3 Feb 2013 21:13

It was ridiculous Cat, I can only assume that everyone who usually votes assumed those two would be safe.


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 3 Feb 2013 21:11

That was ridiculous. Neither of them should have been in the bottom two in the first place. Joe should have gone, he can't skate to save his life.


GlitterBaby Report 7 Jan 2013 13:40

I thought that Keith skated better than Shayne.

Love the combination of Beth and Dan.

Not sure why the production team thought that Ashley would be a suitable judge.

Please bare in mind I am skating on ice virgin so dont know the history of Jason and Karen but I picked up on the gist of it :-D


Janet Report 7 Jan 2013 11:36

I missed most of it unfortunately but I saw Karen, what on earth have they brought her back for, she does not do anything to promote the show. Jason has always been outspoken but underneath his comments are helpful suggestions which is what a judge is there for. Who was that other female, she was so loud that I turned the sound off.
Will watch the program later on this week to see the contestants but won't bother watching the judges.-jl


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 7 Jan 2013 11:26

I felt Karen overmarked slightly too, except maybe with the exception of Beth. Jason didn't surprise me in the slightest, he's always marked lower than the other judges on most occasions.

I enjoyed the show last night. The standard of skating was higher this year and I think they all did well. It'll be interesting to see how next week compares to this week.

I though Beth was excellent although I do think Jason had a point when he talked about the performance but, as Robin said, that will come in time. Matt Lapinskas put on a great performance too.


AnninGlos Report 7 Jan 2013 10:43

I do think that Karen made herself look bad. Maybe she is smarting because they brought back Jason because the viewing figures fell drastically after he left.

In a TV mag he said he was prepared to put it behind him but it takes two to rebuild a relationship. Maybe she feels untouchable as she is 'in a relationship' with Christopher Dean. I can't say I like her very much. Jason does give good advice which is what he is there for. Karen seemed to be over marking to me.
