I wrote this last night as I was watching it, and it was originally posted on entertainment site The BizzNiz - which has regular updates on all the reality shows, soap spoilers, etc!
Here they are…. I see Mark Benton’s wearing a blonde wig….oh no, sorry, that’s Vanessa Feltz… Sophie Ellis Bextor looking fabulous… are we sure Ben Cohen isn’t one of the professional dancers? Abbey Clancey looks amazing, but Fiona Fullerton…. that dress is for someone twenty years younger and two dress sizes smaller. She’s a great looking woman, why do they have to dress her up like some X Factor dancer? Give her a bit of dignity!
Right, the couples… who’s going to get hunky Artem??? Promise I won’t make too many ‘murder on the dance floor’ jokes about Sophie… whoa! Lucky Natalie’s got Artem!!! And Deborah hasn’t done too badly for herself with Robin, either! Bad luck Pasha… Rachel Riley’s a bit boring after the divine Kimberley Walsh last year….
Nice bit of Aerosmith…. first thing that strikes me about Jessie J is that she doesn’t look or sound anything like as incredible as she does in the music videos on the Viva channel…
Wondering if all the professional dancers are crossing their fingers they don’t get the ‘joke’ celebrity contestant! And I wonder if when they do that ‘celebrity reveal’ thing, they think “I only know who about half of them actually are”, like the rest of us!!
Two guys thinking, please don’t let me get Vanessa Feltz, please don’t let me get Vanessa Feltz…
Aha, now it’s Louis and Flavia – the man who turned it into Strictly Come Gymnastics last year – well, Kimberley should have won!! Love that doctor dance though.
It’s the moment they’ve all been waiting for …. who will get the pleasure of spending 3 months in a sweaty armpit’s reach of Dave Myers and Mark Benton? Though Ben Cohen, luv, you can sweat over me all you like..! And how delighted Karen looks with her hairy biker….not!! Two girls left – one of us gets the hunk, one of us gets…. !!!
Wasn’t the group dance fabulous? Dear little Tony Jacklin! And it looks like Natalie Gumede could win it already!
Roll on the kick off later in the month - who will you be rooting for???!
