    Still working my way through the launch show , but some good pairings so far !
  • Hehe RB, 😉
    Yes, the over the top reactions again🙄
    But hopeful for Anton this year🤗🤞

    This is the first time I have watched it a little bit. It is too noisy and I have no idea who the celebrities are. ☹️. When do they actually dance?

    I'm watching too, I always enjoy it. OH isn't keen anymore, Darcey Bussell isn't in it.

    Glad Anton has a young partner for a change.

  • Over-hyped.  Lots of hip wiggling etc etc from the professional dancers - fewer ballroom moves.  I have no idea who most of the celebs are - but it will probably shake down, as usual, to the talented few who, come the final few weeks, make it all worth while.  Celebrity status doesn't matter when it comes down to actual dancing talent.
  • Ooh no I didn't RB, will have a look. Glad I recorded it 😉
  • No, she's definitely not in the group dance. How very strange, she did say that she's never ever danced. Bit daft her doing the show,  If she can't even take part in the group dance. Wonder how she got away with that😂
    I'm going to miss Darcy too Lizzie.

    I was convinced Anton was going to get Anneka ! 
    I think they dance on 21st September @Purplerain , next week is a programme about the professional dancers and their highlights on the show, which might give some idea of what goes on !
    Over the years, the celebrities usually include someone from Eastenders, someone from BBC Breakfast, sports people, someone more "mature" shall we say, and someone from Radio 1.
    This year is no exception 😁
    The thing is that as the weeks go by, you get to know more about them and their personalities,  so even if you don't know who they are, it doesn't really matter.
    I know what you mean about the noise though ! I have watched it from the very start, and it's changed a heck of a lot since then.
    I always record it so l can fast forward through the annoying bits and concentrate on the dance and the judges comments,  also useful for rewinding where necessary! 
    @1Runnybeak1 you're right,  l couldn't see Anneka anywhere until the end. Very odd.
    Are they giving Oti a replacement partner ?

    Never watch the group dance.  It's always embarrassing and far too fast and flicky with the camera.   If Anneka can't even clap in time Kevin has his work cut out.  Good luck to him.

    Not bothered about the pairings either tho I'm pleased to see Johannes as a pro this year.  What does interest me is how hard the celebs work and how well the professionals manage their training and choreographies and then the judges' comments.   As ever, I hope they are going to mark intelligently and not hand out 8s and 9s from the start as there'll be nowhere for the celebs to go and no-one is that good from zero.  I hope Bruno can stay in his chair a bit longer this year.

    Interesting to watch the judges dancing.   The two women clearly know their stuff but my goodness Bruno and Craig looked wooden and "all mouth and no trousers" by comparison.

  • I always record it too AnniD, same reason🤣
    Yes shame that chap hurt his foot, think they should get someone else to take his place too. 
    I would imagine Anneka will be the first out 😉
