Well I've heard of David James and Emma Barton but not the other two :-0 :-D. Once the competition gets started it doesn't seem to matter whether you know them or not :-D :-D


'Emma' Report 1 Aug 2019 13:00

True McB cause I don't know any of them :-D


Tabitha Report 1 Aug 2019 13:07

No never heard of them - What on earth is a BLOGGER is it actually a profession now?

Have we managed to lose all the "well known people" now?

I think this may be the year i forget the show altogether, didn't bother to vote last year, first time ever.

Also how on earth can you have the sister of one of the professional dancers as a judge. I am sure she is very good - you cant tell me she wont have a very slight bias streak in there somewhere, subconsciously. . If Oti wasn't dancing that would be different.


MotownGal Report 1 Aug 2019 17:47

I know Christ Ramsey from 8 out of 10 Cats.

I don't know the difference between a Blogger, a Vlogger or an Influencer. :-S :-S :-S

I shall watch it. But unless someone comes along that I want to support, it will be a bit hollow.

I watch it for CRH. :-D :-D Dahhhhhling.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 2 Aug 2019 13:49

I have only heard of David James, I don’t watch any soaps, sohave no idea who they are.
I wonder who will be the offering this year for their Ann Widecome type comedic value


AnninGlos Report 2 Aug 2019 15:06

I know Emma Barton and Catherine Tyldsley that is all so far.

A Vlogger is somebody who 'blogs' via video.


MotownGal Report 2 Aug 2019 17:39

Catherine Tyldsley was Eva in Corrie. She used to hiccup laugh as far as I remember.

Mike Bushell is the fella on Saturday morning on the Beeb.


MotownGal Report 4 Aug 2019 08:30

Karim Zeroual a childrens presenter. Not heard of him.

So that is two I haven't a clue who they are.


LondonBelle Report 4 Aug 2019 09:06

Don't watch Corrie nor CBBC, now there's a surprise :-D I've heard of Mike Bushnell but if I passed him in the street wouldn't recognise him :-D

Thought I read months back that Chris Evans, radio presenter, wanted to do Strictly; we'll have to wait and see :-D


MotownGal Report 5 Aug 2019 08:02

The latest is a Viscountess. Married to the Marquess of Bath. Longleat.


LondonBelle Report 5 Aug 2019 09:44

I don't move in those circles so another I haven't heard of her :-D


Tabitha Report 5 Aug 2019 12:38

Well thats a new one - a Viscountess - Do they get paid for being on Strictly or does she want more advertising for Longleat? I do know who she is.

I dont watch any of the soaps - stopped when Angie and Den left - when Emmerdale went from a farm story to a whole load of nothing - and Corrie as soon as the new people turned up & it lost the plot.

Catherine Tydesley - she was on Tipping point at the weekend. I originally thought she was in Mr Selfridge - but that was Katherine Kelly

Mike Bushell - Sports Commentator - isn't he on BBC morning show

Still nothing that exciting to make me watch this year.


MotownGal Report 5 Aug 2019 14:21

Oh do watch is Tabitha. We all have something to say about the dancing, and it is always interesting to hear other people's views. <3


AnninGlos Report 5 Aug 2019 14:33

I watch it for the costumes and to see the contestants improve, even if I don't know them. I would watch it if they used non celebrities, in fact I wish they would.


MotownGal Report 5 Aug 2019 17:29

Remember Come Dancing with the Formation Teams doing The Military Two Step? :-D :-D


MotownGal Report 6 Aug 2019 08:16

Michelle Visage, I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. But was she not in the BB House a few years ago?

Will Bayley he was Table Tennis champion in the Paralympics.

Jamie Laing, in Made in Chelsea, heir to the McVitie empire.


Tabitha Report 6 Aug 2019 12:24

I loved come Dancing & Military Two Step was my favourite as a little girl - Good old Terry Wogan - I miss that dance.

I am not keen on the Salsa/Samba/Cha cha cha / Contemporary/Jazz

I do like something with a bit of style

I love watching the Argentine Tango - Paso - Viennese Waltz - Charleston - Jive - American Smooth

My favourites are the Movies evening - Halloween and a good showdance not one of those modern movement things all arms and legs an no style

I think the Tom Chambers Charleston showdance, and the Gemma Atkinson Burlesque showdance really memorable.

Still thinking about watching it, just to see who Anton gets this year.


MotownGal Report 6 Aug 2019 16:09

I don't think Anton's partner has been announced yet Tabitha.


James Cracknell - Olympic Rower

Alex Scott, who played for England Ladies.

Dev Griffin, haven't a clue.


LondonBelle Report 6 Aug 2019 18:09

Looks like Anneka Rice is in the line up too...I liked Treasure Hunt :-D
