Seeing the possibles in the paper I am wondering how much lower they will sink looking for 'celebrities'. I wish they would try doing it with non celebtities (ordinary people).


MotownGal Report 13 Aug 2018 16:55

I did see a list in the papers too Ann. However, I think the firm contenders will be leaked on a regular basis.

Shall we have a bash Ann? Cant be any worse than some? :-D


AnninGlos Report 13 Aug 2018 20:11

Yes why not? Have to sort the dancing shoes out!


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2018 08:42

I have added the following two Faye Tozer and Danny John Jules, and know who they are.

However the latest this morning is Joe Sugg. A You Tuber. Apparently the brother of Zoella, another You Tuber. I haven't a clue who either of them are.


ElizabethK Report 14 Aug 2018 09:21

Kate Piper is the model who had acid thrown in her face by an ex boyfriend, leaving her scarred and blind in one eye

She seems to have coped well and was remarkedly upbeat in the television interview last night,looking forward to the challenge!


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2018 12:29

You are right about Katie, Elizabeth.

I know who Faye and Danny are, but am stumped about Joe.


AnninGlos Report 14 Aug 2018 13:25

I don't know Danny John Jules, or I don't think I do. And definitely don't know those last two.


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2018 16:28

Danny John Jules is in Red Dwarf, also Death in Paradise. He is an accomplished stage actor and has appears in musicals in the West End.

Have seen some of the others who have been suggested, and have said to myself 'Who?'

So, Ann, shall we see who can sew the most sequins onto our tulle? :-D :-D


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 14 Aug 2018 17:41

I should have put in a request for The Iclandic Football Team! or at least some of them. Would set my pulse racing whatever their dance level was,

Seriously though, wouldlove to see Stacey Solomon, she has been in a few realitiy programs, including I'm a Celeb, and Bake Off. Also on Loose Women. Would also loke to see Lucy (something), she presents historical programs.
Dion Dublin, (ex-footballer and now presenter on Homes Under the Hammer) and Charles (someone) from Bargain Hunt, Auctioneer from Derby 9not the Charlie Ross fellow)
Brian Cox would be great, but probably too busy.

Don't think that anyone form my list will be on, but can live in hope.


AnninGlos Report 14 Aug 2018 21:05

Lol MTG better get started or mine will be half covered, could always glue them I suppose.


Mersey Report 14 Aug 2018 22:54

MotownGal Report 15 Aug 2018 08:25

Don't know her either.


MotownGal Report 15 Aug 2018 20:00

OK. Graeme Swann, a cricketer is the latest.

Not a cricket fan so don't know him either.


MotownGal Report 16 Aug 2018 13:45

So.……….Dr Ranj Singh is the latest.

Doctor on This Morning. Don't watch it, so don't know him either.
