    Didn't watch the launch show but I'll be trying to watch it when they properly start up. Just thought I'd chirp in as earlier I was reading a write up on each celebrity on the BBC news site and under Anneka's profile it was mentioned that she had fallen over recently and her back was very badly bruised etc. Perhaps she was signed off from taking part in the launch show as it was filmed in advance and she was still too injured to do much at that point. There's another contestant, Jamie I think, who appeared in the launch show but is actually out of the show now because of a foot injury - saw that on the news site recently.

    Lucid :)

    Yes, I heard that tonight's show was pre-recorded Lucid. Didn't know Anneka had hurt her back.

    Craig has had hip replacements on both his hips though, so don't think he was that bad really. Thought Shirley was amazing.

    Apparently there is going to be a replacement partner for Oti, possibly to be announced tomorrow.

    The replacement is Kelvin Fletcher,  who played Andy Sugden in Emmerdale .
    I have heard of him, although I haven't watched Emmerdale for years.
    Never the same since they dropped the word "Farm" from the title....
  • I remember when Kelvin Fletcher wer now't but a lad now he's a big burly bloke, the bookies had Emily Atack as favourite to take Jamie Laing's place I don't quite know how that would work?

    I'm so looking forward to the double whammy of Strictly and the rugby world cup - my idea of heaven! 
    Yes, over the years I've tired of the producers' obvious meddling, the ott reactions, and the anonymity of the slebs, but as crass and trashy as it is, I cant help but love it (that's strictly I'm talking about)!
    The only thing that would've made it better is if in his intro, Chris Ramsay had said he was only in it to snog a fit dancer.... what, too soon? :)

    Did anyone else think that Jamie looked a little less than heartbroken when he did his piece to camera about having to withdraw?

    Maybe he was being a brave little soldier. But Oti didn't look as devastated as l'd expected ! 
    Kelvin Fletcher has certainly grown up from "little Andy Sugden"....
  • I feel Oti's odds may have improved somewhat! 
    Talking of odds: who's gonna be involved in the first scandal this year? It's usually the non actors who have problems with the "strictly curse" because they're not used to being in that intense a relationship. Having had experience of acting (albeit at the Am-Dram end) and encounter groups it's very easy to mistake the relationship for one of a very different nature!

    Hi RB, yes I read earlier that she has a shoulder injury......apparently she fell in a friends garden. I wonder if she was running around like a headless chicken like she used too in her shellsuit😉 
    Also whilst browsing on my iPad about Kevin being the replacement for Jamie Laing, there was a photo of Kevin in a sparkly spangly top.......was he already lined up just in case?🤔🤔

    Hehe, he certainly has AnniD 😉😉
