Thank you for the list. I know most of them which makes a change for me.
Looking forward to a bit of sparkle on a Saturday night.


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2021 09:42

Lovely to see you Ginnie.

Please add your comments when the competition starts.

In the meantime, dust down your tulle and chalk your shoes. ;-) <3


LondonBelle Report 14 Aug 2021 10:57

I know more than I usually do, I'm sure it will be enjoyable regardless :-D

I think we might be in for a good year....fingers crossed :-D


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2021 12:06

Lovely to see you too on here Belle. <3

Yes, I know a few. Greg Wise who could give Colin Firth a run for his money in a costume drama.

;-) ;-)


LondonBelle Report 14 Aug 2021 14:40

Now I've never heard of Greg Wise :-0. Well I don't think I have, perhaps I'll recognise him when I see him :-D


MotownGal Report 14 Aug 2021 15:09

Married to Emma Thompson. He was in Sense and Sensibility.

He was Willoughby, striding across the moors! ;-)


AnninGlos Report 14 Aug 2021 21:37

Let us hope that Covid stays away from them. I did see one of the professional dancers tested positive.


AnninGlos Report 14 Aug 2021 21:42

So Sinead from Corrie and Frankie from EEnders. Frankie is deaf, that should be interesting.


Kay Report 14 Aug 2021 23:15

I only know 3!!
I must lead a very sheltered life!!
I was trying to think when it starts. Is it November?


LondonBelle Report 15 Aug 2021 06:25

I think Strictly normally starts in September but the 2021 launch date has yet to be announced :-D


JoyLouise Report 15 Aug 2021 06:52

Greg Wise - actor husband of,Emma Thompson;
Adam Peaty - Olympic swimmer;
Dan Walker - BBC morning news announcer and sports presenter
Katie McGlynn - Corrie.

They’re the ones I have heard of.

In the back of my mind, many years ago, Dan Walker was quite religious and refused to work on Sundays. Or have I got the wrong guy?

One morning a short while ago he announced he was taking a break from the morning news - now I know why!


MotownGal Report 15 Aug 2021 07:59

Nice to see Ann, Kay and Joy twirling onto this thread.

I do hope Covid will not rear its ugly head, and some have to isolate.

I know seven of them!

Tilly is Gordon Ramsey's daughter.


JoyLouise Report 15 Aug 2021 08:38

Hi Maddie, always happy to twirl.

I have to admit, though, that I’ve only ever watched one series of Strictly - because a pal told me I ought to watch Jay who was a great dancer. He was!


maggiewinchester Report 15 Aug 2021 09:03

Robert Webb has 'form' for dancing :-D :-D

Anyone else remember him dancing to 'What A Feeling' for Comic Relief in 2009?


MotownGal Report 15 Aug 2021 10:21

Yes Maggie, I remember that. Comical, but very, very good. He really perfected his moves.


Florence61 Report 15 Aug 2021 19:32

Well. have to say i have only heard of about 3 of those names!!

Better do some googling lol before it starts.

The most memorable one for me has to be Anne Wydicombe (Spelling?)

Florence in the hebrides


Kay Report 15 Aug 2021 23:27

LondonBelle, thanks for that. No doubt someone will let us know the actual date soon.

MotownGirl, always happy to chat Strictly!! :-D
Still miss the gorgeous AJ. Brilliant dancer, a total gentleman and general all round hunk.


AnninGlos Report 16 Aug 2021 07:02

Kay Report 16 Aug 2021 23:13
