Ah so three boys in TV then.


MotownGal Report 23 Sep 2023 14:32

Adam has a twin called Scott who was on Love Island.

His brother is Ryan who was in Corrie.


AnninGlos Report 23 Sep 2023 13:07

Yes he is Island, they may even be twins, they are very much alike to look at.

Poor Amy she is so upset at losing her hair. Sending her get well wishes. <3


Island Report 23 Sep 2023 11:49

I know of six on the 'celebrity' list. :-0 Just saying :-)

I believe Adam Thomas is Ryan Thomas (Corrie) brother?


LondonBelle Report 23 Sep 2023 11:43

Don't forget sandwiches and a flask :-0 :-0

Amy <3 <3


MotownGal Report 23 Sep 2023 11:37

First live show tonight, which will give us some indication of how much they have learned.

The bookies have named their favourites, but time will tell.

Wishing Amy well. <3 <3

I love the “ad” on BBC 1 for Strictly :-D


LondonBelle Report 17 Sep 2023 13:07

Some interesting pairings, I think it could be a good year :-D

I do like Nigel, I hope he can dance :-D


Andysmum Report 17 Sep 2023 10:09

At the beginning the votes often seem to go by popularity, rather than dancing ability. So you get a well-known character in a soap staying on even if their dancing is awful and quite a good dancer getting booted off.

One obvious example is Anne Widdecombe! :-)


Florence61 Report 16 Sep 2023 22:09

Linda, I predict an early departure for les bless him.

Plenty of good dancers and better than last year me thinks.

We shall see how it goes.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 16 Sep 2023 21:00

I was out and only got home in time to see the group dance. I don’t think Les Dennis will be in long and I thought that jump suit was very unflattering on Angela Ripon.


MotownGal Report 16 Sep 2023 20:52

So now we are set up for the series.

Dave Arch was introduced, but not the singers individually, the band was hardly mentioned last year.

Lovely that they did a dedication to Amy who is very unwell in hospital. <3

The pairings are as follows.

Amanda - Giovanni

Zara - Graziano

Jody - Jowita

Krishnan - Lauren

Bobby - Dianne

Leyton - Nikita

Nigel - Katya

Angela R. - Kai

Ellie - Vito

Eddie - Karen

Annabel - Johannes

Adam - Luba

Angela S - Carlos

Nikita - Gorka

Les - Nancy

Lovely dedication to Len, who will be sadly missed. <3

Not too sure about the Judges dance, but good to see Anton dancing with someone who can dance with him, rather than be pulled around the floor.

The group dance at the end, although only the first week, will give them something to work on.

Roll on next week, when the competition proper begins. :-)


AnninGlos Report 16 Sep 2023 20:44

Yes it was more rntertaing this way I thought.


Andysmum Report 16 Sep 2023 20:24

I have just watched it and I think the show was an improvemrnt on previous years. Having the celebrities meet their partners away from the studio, doing away with the long pauses with them all lined up, was much better.


**Ann** Report 16 Sep 2023 18:08

Stay calm MG…not long to wait now :-D :-D :-D


MotownGal Report 15 Sep 2023 18:50

Just to remind all interested parties that the launch show is on tomorrow.

BBC1, 6.35 - 8.20.

It introduces the contestants to the professional dancers.

Everyone is welcome who wishes to participate with their comments on the dancers and dances.

Keeeeep Dancing. <3


MotownGal Report 7 Sep 2023 12:29

Behave yourself Ann :-D :-D ;-)

Apparently on Twitter there have been spoilers as to who is partnered with who.

Im not on Twitter, and I dont want to know.

At least Anton is a judge again, and wont be lumbered with someone who has two left feet. :-D :-D


**Ann** Report 7 Sep 2023 12:27

Can you binge watch :-D :-D :-D ;-)


MotownGal Report 7 Sep 2023 12:23

Thank you Belle, I saw this earlier. So yes, we had better get our hips wiggling. :-D :-D


LondonBelle Report 7 Sep 2023 11:31

It has been announced that the Strictly launch show will be aired on BBC1 at 06:35 on Sat, 16 Sep...... it's getting closer :-D :-D
