Has anyone else spotted that the first 3 contestants have been announced?   I recognise the chap..........   Wonder who else we'll get but hope there are some good movers in there.

    Danny John Jules can move ... or at least he could ... he was in Starlight Express years ago.  :)

    At least Strictly are no longer trying to claim that all the contestants are non-dancers.  Danny John Jules said on The One Show that he did bits of choreography for George Michael.  Whether that is a 'plus' or not I'll leave to individual opinion :)
    Katie Piper and Faye Tozer both also acknowledged that they had quite a lot of dance experience, although Katie Piper also said she has no sense of timing so that could get interesting.

    Craig RH gave out the prizes in our local produce show two weekends ago. What a nice chap; he had time for a chat and a photo with everyone.

    Neither have I .......... but U-tubers are hugely popular with teenagers so he's there to appeal to that age group.

    I know RG, not that I watch it since that Irish bloke arrived.  Canna thole him.  Just thought Hosta may get the Red Dwarf reference.
