Yay, get your frocks on, grab your partners and get down on the dance floor as the new series of SCD starts tomorrow night. I'm really looking forward to it, and for more info on the celebs taking part this year see here http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictlycomedancing/contestants/

They've changed the format a bit this year with the results on Sunday evening and the bottom two have to dance again for the judges and they have the final say (so we don't lose someone like Spoony from last year too early I guess)

I'm pleased that SCD - It takes two starts Monday night with Claudia too, so I'm just about settled and ready for this winter's TV

I do feel a bit torn though, as my bessie mate will be in the audience for Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway (I'll watch the beginning and then tape the rest of it)

So as Brucie and Tess would say 'keep dancing' http://bestsmileys.com/dancing/7.gif

Surprise surprise, I really look forward to it, its good clean family entertainment and i like the change in format to the USA/BBC show format of Dancing with the stars.

There could be an exit before it starts with Kate already having feet/tendon problems.

I like the idea of the judges having the final decision, its a bit like Fame Academy at least we will not loose a 'spooney' this year.

No, I've no idea, but I would imagine that Alesha (Misteeq) and Matt (lad from Eastenders, I think) could be possible favourites. It's going to be fun to watch Gabby & hubby Kenny get competitive too

I agree Sue, Brucie drives me bonkers too, I think I'd rather see Philip Schofield host this

The ladies were great I actually Agreed with the judges this week they were spot on. Len was a gentleman tonight. Actually they didnt like Gethan from BP much. Brian had the lowest score, but we will have to see what happens Sunday, hope a newspaper doesnt spoil it, as its recorded at 9pm.

Bruce is in his 80's and last of the showmen, to hold down a 75 min live show at his age, he is doing very well, so many others will not do live TV.

Pity we do not have an more showmen following him up.

RATINGS

Too close to call current early figures 7.4 million SCD, 7.5 million X -Factor, which has been running for a month or so.

True - and usually he's great to watch. I just felt that last night he just didn't sparkle at all. He did mention that he's had flu this week so perhaps that was why.

Yes, he did say he had flu, the studio didnt laugh too much at his 'jokes' but it is hard to do it live.

No, I didn't see it Andrew, I was at work, saw SCD on video when I got home and eating my tea! Live shows shouldn't be a problem for him I would have thought with his experience, why are they making such a fuss about Sunday's show being live when its so obviously recorded on Saturday night. Its been mentioned on the radio this morning that John Barnes was reporting on a sporting event abroad yesterday afternoon and Kenny Logan was also reporting on 'live' sporting event at the same time SCD was on last night! I respect the chap don't get me wrong, just don't like him! I admire his stamina for his age and he's been very good in the past but the time has come to move over and reading the other posts I don't think I'm alone in thinking that.

Yes.

Just to confirm Saturday is live, Sunday is recorded, on Saturday night mostly after 9pm, ie the result as phone lines close 9.00pm but, the professional dancers bit can be done earlier.

Wow, you lucky thing Claire - we tried loads of times last year to get tickets but never could :sad2:

I love SCD but must admit I found it a bit difficult to get into it with the new format - I always liked it when everyone danced the first week. I'm not sure I like it when it's just men and women. I assume this is only for the first couple of weeks, though, until they get rid of a couple of celebs :confused3

I think its just 'time' the current live show is 75 mins long, if both men and women danced the first week it would be over 2 hours.

They did this last time, I think week three they are all together and that show will be long maybe 90 mins.

Yes I was lucky as loads of my friends applied as well and only one other person got some. This year you could only apply for 2 tickets and for one show then they randomly selected the winners for each show.

As I work at Television Centre as well I'm on the look out for them at all times. My friend saw Gethin yesterday and said he is even better looking in the flesh.

Good show last night, but KATE, I know she has been through a lot, so brave, but when the harshest comment doesnt come from the judges but comes from her partner, Anton. '' If you feel like wanting to join in on the choreography at any time, please feel free to do so'' hopefully the public will not vote for her, (out of sympathy) but, be cruel to be kind.

What a shame they decided to get rid of Stephanie, I thought she was a great character and I would've been happier to see Letitia leave

In a way I'm pleased that Kate was saved, but now she is either going to have to up her game or quit. Thankfully there are quite a few guys who I think could be leaving in the next week or so, so maybe she'll slip under the radar

Letita was better in the live shoe last night, she uped her game for this recorded programme, but I must say I would have thought the final two in the dance off would have been Letita and Kate with Kate going.

Maybe as Letita is in the live touring show they couldnt let her go in a week.

Stephanie wanted to go though so I think in the end the correct person went.

Did some great Strictly spotting on Friday I saw:

Erin, Willie, Lillia, Dom, Nicole, James, Ola, Gaby, Kenny, Flavia, Matt and the two coaches who do the group dance training!

Its a crime and an injustice, Kate must be getting the doggey GTM phones working for her.

Neither should have been in the bottom two, I expected Kenny to go before Gabby, she wasnt best pleased.

Strictly got an average of 7.9 million viewers and a 37.1% share, peaking at 8.7 million, compared with X Factor's 7.1 million average and 33.1% share.

The ITV show's audience peaked at 9.3 million but this was only after the dance show came off air.

Just goes to show it's a popularity contest as much as it is a dancing competiton. I guess it makes it a bit more exciting as we genuinely don't know who is going to be in the bottom 2 each week.

I always vote each week but Amber (6) chooses who we vote for. So far it's been Gethin twice and Kelly and Kenny once each.

I though Alesha and Matthew were brilliant, it was nice to see Kate and Anton not on the bottom, shame Dom got his knickers in a twist over the scoring, and I thought Kenny & Ola's routine was quite entertaining (especially when Ola had her eyes covered under Kenny's kilt :rotfl2: )

The only couple I can't warm to are Brendan (doughnut) and Kelly, I don't know why, they just do my head in ;)

......shame Dom got his knickers in a twist over the scoring,

I wonder is Dom showing his true colours - he seemed to be really annoyed at the scoring. I actually thought they scored him right for his dance. I also thought Kenny was hacked off at the judges comments too

Looking forward to tonights show to see who goes out. I hope it's not John as I'd like to see him dance some more

I really enjoyed Kenny's dancing last night. It was very amusing and entertaining !!

(I have a soft spot for him anyway as he was a brilliant rugby player for Scotland).

Not sure who should go tonight.

Must say whilst on the last week weeks I have posted KATE, must go, she actually did a lot better on Saturday, upped her game, and I feel should be 'saved' now, ( so thats the kiss of death then from me).:rotfl2:

But I did feel 'Dom' wasn't that good, and he wasn't in a good mood for the judges or the marks, he thinks they have favorites, but really the comments on him and the marks were correct, 'acting' like a bad looser, :sad2: might be his downfall, rather than a sympathy vote.

I can't bear them - he's a doughnut, she's a girly show-off and they just love themselves a little too much... :rolleyes:

So pleased for Letitia last night - I couldn't believe it when she said she's going to be 40 next week! I had no idea - she looks pretty good!! She'll always be little Sharon Watts to me... :happytv:

I'm obviously in a minority here because I really wanted John Barnes to go. I thought the judges were pretty unfair to Dom - I really liked his Paso. To be honest, I thought Kenny should have gone last night - well, a couple of weeks ago actually.

For some reason, I am not warming to Alesha - she is a good dancer but she seems pretty full of herself - her and Kelly Brook (but I never liked her anyway). Her and Brendan are a very good combination, both as big-headed as each other ;)

It is nothing against him really - I just don't like the way he looks when he dances - he is really heavy and flat-footed. I did think his dance on Saturday was not as bad as the judges made out but I got the impression he was trying to prove something rather than just enjoying the dancing.

I've had enough. I'm actually going to vote for everyone except Kate. Was she really in pain the first week because she was just as bad the following? My votes won't make a difference but if she got booted off at least I'd think I'd helped! But I'm so fed up with the really awful people being in for weeks and better ones getting kicked off. At least they can save one couple this time.
I actually like Brendan and Kelly.:confused3 (but it was good to see them brought back down to earth this week.) Now they'll raise their game next show.
Letitia is great and improving every week.

I do agree Kenny is at risk, but he puts so much into it, and I enjoy what he does, I think he again will get the Scottish vote for the song as last weeks Kilt. If he is in the bottom two the judges will vote him off as they clearly do not like him.

I disagree - I thought Kate did pretty well last night. The judges were too hard on her. For me, Kenny should definitely be gone tonight - he has no rhythm and doesn't even seem to listen to the music. He hardly 'danced' a step last night and, to my mind, actually deserved to be at the bottom of the leader board.

My favourites last night were Matt and Alesha :thumbsup2

I fully agree, she was brave to still dance in the dance off, it was clear the judges have wanted her off from the start and been frustrated that they couldn't get her off, and other ''better'' dancers were lost.

They were all going to vote her off before she moved a single inch, to her credit she still did it, and in pain.

Well done Kate for her spirit, but in the end she had to go.

So here is my mini day trip report...

Mike and I set off from our house just after 1330 on Saturday and got the train into London arriving at Television Centre at just after 1500. They tickets said that the doors opened at 1545 but to make sure they filled all the seats more tickets were given out then there are places so we wanted to be early. As it turns out they were already letting people in when we got there and I found out later that some people had got in the queue at noon. Mike and I were the 121st and 122nd people in. We then had a long wait until 1700 when we went into the studio. While we were waiting we were asked to fill in voting cards in case the phone vote had a fault or there was a tie. When they started calling people to queue up for the move over to the studio the first people in line were those with Production tickets with a red sticker, then Production tickets with a blue sticker, then Production tickets with a yellow sticker, then Production tickets with a green sticker, then Production tickets with an orange sticker, by now the queue is huge and i'm still sat down, thankfully next they called for people who had voting cards so we were able to queue up, then they called for regular tickets numbers 1-50 etc and lastly 2 standbys.

We had to stand outside in the cold for a bit but we spotted the odd celeb arriving which kept us entertained then we made our way in and we were shown upstairs and into the back row but then there was a hold up so we were told to go into the front row!!! We had a great view from there as we were opposite the judges and could see the whole floor which is much smaller than it looks on TV.

At 1750 they filmed the Sugar Babes and did two takes then the live show started at 1810. Some of the funniest bits were watching the judges after they gave their scores as they would hit each other with the paddles and stuff. When the show finished we left the studio again for 90 minutes, back into the studio at 2050 in the same seats as before. They filmed each bit but with stops in between as it wasn't live and did a second take of one bit.

When the show finished at about 2215 we went up to the BBC bar where quickly we were joined by all the dancers and celebs and I went round like a mad fan getting my photo took with them all. At one point Anton winked at me and then when I had my photo took with him he gave me a kiss as did the Fonz who actually came over to me! We chatted to most of them as well, Darren in particular for ages.

At 2330 we set off for home getting back at 0130 so excatly a 12 hour day. It was such a great day, at one point just after we arrived at the bar Mike offered me some crisps and although I was hungry I said no as I was too busy looking out for the dancers and didn't want bad breath or salty fingers, Mike said the look on my face was priceless and I now know how to stick to my diet!

I doubt you'll be able to see me, they didn't zoom in on my area at all. The best shot of my area though was right at the end of the results show when they did their last dance and they panned right round them, I think you'd have to pause it though and get up close to the screen!

I might be on the website though but they haven't updated it yet.

I see that Kelly has retired from the show following the loss of her father this week http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictlycomedancing/news/2007/11/30/51155.shtml

I know I wasn't a fan of hers, but I wouldn't have wanted her to leave like this

My thoughts go out to her and her family

I wonder if we'll lose anyone else this weekend

Another great show tonight, I hope Kenny and Letitia are in the dance off tomorrow night. My final three are, Alesha, Matt and Gethin :)

Read after tonights show is finished........




To cover for the loss of Kelly Saturdays pro gramme started 5 minutes later with extra trails before the show and a round up and highlights of Children in need, presume the same for the next few Saturdays as all bar the Christmas TV listings pro grammes have been submitted.

Matt should stop ''playing around':love: so much and get on with Dancing,


Found out the result late last night resisted posting, the results show is on now as I start typing this.

As I understand, you got what you wanted Letitia and Kenny in the dance off and Kenny lost.

Letita was very ill last night and so dancing three live dances in one night, she did deserve to stay. :thumbsup2 Kenny has got better and better, from someone everyone thought he would be out quickly, an also ran, and his wife Gabby would be in it longer than him and possibly in the final he has done so well.

Kenny's strength in the lifts last week was amazing.:thumbsup2

I really have missed Kelly so sorry for the loss of her father, I hope they bring her, Penny and Gabby back for the Christmas day special at 8pm ( after Doctor Who) for a special dance.

Reports on the SCD Live tour is James Martin has joined them! So we will she him in the next series on TV I presume.

Letita has problems she is contracted to be in a pantomime starting very soon, and her extended stay in SCD, will cause a clash soon.

Now how about Kenny and Gabby having a dance on TV together.:love:

Well lets see Kenny on it takes two Sunday night.:surfweb:

I admit Kenny's Rumba wasn't so good, but I was sorry to see him go.

Letitia always seems very stiff from the waist up - and I thought she would go before Kenny. She doesn't have the posture for a dancer really and will go next week for sure. (You need to be very flexible and have rhythm to be a dancer and she just doesn't do it at all).

I think my winner will be Gethin !!

I'm so glad Kenny has finally gone - he just wasn't up to the standard of the rest of them. I do think Letitia will go next as I don't think she is likely to improve much more - but she did really well on Saturday night and in the dance off as it was obvious she really wasn't well.

For me, Matt is still the best but I do think the change in Gethin after his acting classes was amazing and I reckon he could go on to win now.

I would rather Gethin or Matt won as, although Alesha is really good, she has obviously had some dance experience before, unlike the others.

Totally agree - I think he's improved loads but I'm relieved he's not going to lumber around the dance floor anymore... :headache:

I also Letitia's the obvious next one to go - she works so hard and has raised her game but the youngsters are amazing! I'd like one of the boys to win - preferably Matt...

Did anyone watch Dancing With The Stars? I love the US version - the standard on there was incredible and Mel B rocked!!! :woohoo:

Felt really sorry for Matt tonight and I thought Craig's comments were too harsh, especially after his 2nd dance. He could see that Matt was already very upset and didn't need to add to it. Although technically he is a better dancer that Letitia I don't know if it would be good for him to go through to the semi final. There will be even more pressure than tonight and I just don't think he'll be able to handle it.

Gethin and Camilla to win - I know Aleesha is probably better but there's something about her that grates on me.

Whilst on performance Matt and Letitia should be in the Dance off, I feel Matt is going to get a massive telephone vote.

I feel Letitia doesn't really want it anymore her Pantomime commit mets get in the way, I just hope Aleesha stays in, the good news in a dance off the judges would all vote for her.

That would be terrible,

I think its going to be:-

1/ Letitia and Matt,
or
2/ Letitia and Aleesha

in the dance off,

Each way I think Letitia will most likely go, but in 1/ theres a chance Matt goes.

Reason, I think too many people think Aleesha will automatically do it, and people feel soooo sorry for Matt and Tess really pleaded for them (twice).

Yes my post before the result last night, was right on the money, and at least the result kept the best dancer in, and let the other do their commitments to Pantomime.

The concern is the telephone vote going to personalities and sympathies rather than best dancers.

Hope next week we do not loose the wrong one

Updated, well Letita did well, on performance Matt should have gone, however it solved her commitment clash with Pantomime.

I am just sad Aleesha was in the bottom two, I can only think, my post last night was correct.

Everyone 'expects' her to win, so they do not vote, everyone knew Matt was in trouble so voted for him, Tess needs to watch out, she pleaded too much for Matt last night, saving he was very much in trouble. She didn't do that for other couples ( or as she says Corples)

Anyone now still in has done very well and Letitia.

Well if you miss it for DCL, I know what I would prefer.

Matt was so happy -he is lucky to be still in!

I hope the telephone vote will have a black-lash and as Aleesha was in the dance off she gets the votes this week, we have seen that before, bottom one week top the next,

If you think of the options:-

Say Gethin voted through, dance off Matt/Aleesha Judges vote Aleesha.
Say Aleesha vote through, Gethin/Matt dance off, more close but I guess Gethin through. ( if he is consistent).

Say Vote Matt, Aleesha/Gethin dance off most difficult for judges, 50/50

I guess we are looking at Matt out unless he gets all the vote, and he may do that.

Vincent and Flavia's Argentine Tango :thumbsup2

They were amazing, weren't they? Sad to see Letitia go, but Matt does have the potential to do well as he has proved before, and I have always thought Letitia to be a bit stiff really. She just doesn't seem to be able to relax when she is dancing (although this was one of her better weeks).

Everyones entitled to their favorite and at this point you may get your wish,

Aleesha has been the most consistent and beautiful dancer and put in more hours than anyone else, Matt was on form tonight, but was sooo lucky to still be here after last weeks 'amnesia'.

Gethin has done so well.

With only one going through by the Judge/Phone vote its so open particular as Matt was in no2 position by judges and has a strong phone vote.

If Aleesha or Gethin get through automatically I think Matt will loose the dance off, but if Matt gets through automatically is a difficult decision.

DEVASTATED Camilla Dallerup threw a tantrum after she and Gethin Jones were voted off Strictly Come Dancing.


The Danish beauty and partner Gethin looked stunned after losing to EastEnder Matt Di Angelo and Flavia Cacace in the Beeb show on Saturday.


As soon as the cameras stopped rolling Camilla stomped off, locked herself in her dressing room and refused to go to a party for finalists Alesha Dixon and Matt.


A studio source said: “Camilla was livid. She really wanted to win. She threw a real tantrum. She was in tears and her makeup was a mess.


“There was a big party for all the stars to go to but she wasn’t in the mood.”

I agree she was my 'favorite' but I think at the time of the recording of the Christmas day show the funeral was held.

I think this Saturdays show will be one of the most watched TV shows of 2007, after the Rugby world cup.

With no X -Factor to split the viewers and ITV just putting a film against it, they have left it open to the BBC.

Cant wait for the showdance, I would have prefered that in the main show as I think that will split them up!

They want to make sure people come back for the 2nd show.

I agree it has more competition on ITV , rather than the early show, which most likely will be one of the top viewed shows of 2008.

I just hope they do it at the start to give everyone more time to vote.
