I dont recognise half of those names!
Recognize four names but only actually know who two of them are
I take it Brucie is still presenting?
I'll be recording it and fast-forwarding through the bits where he tells "jokes".
Yep Brucie is still there. Didn;t recognise all of the names (i.e. none of the soap stars) but did know a few others. Though Tony Jacklin must be late sixties if not early 70s and indeed he is 69! However it doesn;t really matter, let's see how they get on.
No Flavia and Vincent this year nor Erin. Apparently Aliona is back though, having been dropped as Natalie has broken her foot.
I recognise seven of the names, but don't think I'd recognise most of them if I passed them in the street!
I know hardly any of the names! That won't last though, being on Strictly at least makes these 'unknowns' into household names. Interesting to see if Dave can dance as well as cook!
And once again there is controversy that one contestant has already had previous dance training. Can't remember which one though cos I don't know half of them either.
Oh dear, Bruce again.
Oh dear, Bruce
My money's on Ben Cohen cos I'm a fan.
I'm probably shooting my own application in the foot, but if you want tickets you need to apply here by Friday http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/shows/shows/strictly_come_dancing_2013
Wouldn;t like to comment on any of them until we have seen them dance first time. I thought Victoira Pendleton would be reasonable last year but she just wasn't. You can never be sure.
ddn't watch it last night, but will catch up on catch up later
Like most others, don't know most of them, but it looks like some nice eye candy to pass the autumn evenings
Watched it last night. Bruce was dreadful and it was a rubbbish show really. But I like one of the new male pros - can't remember his name, the one who got paired last. He's a wonderful dancer.
Vanessa is annoying already and I can't see her lasting long.
Even though I don't know half of them I'm expecting some good dancing from the start. There's a lot of potential from the group dance. See you all at the end of the month.
Yay!! Hello everybody - we are back again!!
Agree Soupy, the new guy, Kevin looks good and he is on a bonus being paired with Susanna who looks like she can move a bit, expect them in for a while. Will wait for the first show to post my thoughts on all of them but one or two stand out already for a variety of reasons.
Natalie looks v good but I think she is the one with previous experience so wil suffer from 'ringah' status (like DVO last year but in this case she seems like a nice girl)
Don't mind Vanessa myself but she can't dance - so long James!
Hairy Biker can't dance either but may survive a few weeks as he seems a nice guy.
Sophie may be very good, I would say she will excel at ballroom rather than latin, a lot depens on her relationship with Brendan.
Ben looks a bit wooden but if he learns quickly may do well
Abbey I really cannot stand, not sure why the nice Peter Crouch married her She should be able to dance a bit but her manner and most certainly her voice get right on my wick!
Roll on 3 weeks
Nice to see you all again
Bit early to start guessing on performances but I'm betting dragon lady Debra will turn out to be good at ballroom.
So pleased that Artem got a good dancer this year
I almost feel sorry for James getting Vanessa
Can't wait to see them all in action even though a couple of them *cough* Dave Myers *cough* look a bit car crash!
So glad someone has started a Strictly thread already
I'm gutted that I missed out on applying for tickets, I thought I had a couple more weeks. Oh well ...
Sad that Vincent, Flavia and Natalie aren't joining this year. Is Erin still there? I went out on Saturday night so only saw half the show (I need to start planning my social life around Strictly for the rest of Autumn)
Erin has gone and Natalie's missing this year due to foot injury Aliona was brought back to replace her but it looks as though she won't be here for long...
There are too many new dancers, will take ages to work out who they are!
Please you're still here Little Nemo!
It's lovely to be back and see the familiar Strictly Gang!
Not sure as I initially warmed to the 2 new girls (even though there was 3 with Iveta, we know her from last year with Johnny), they seemed a bit 'brash' to me. I miss Erin and Camilla and Lilia and Nicole All the original girls were so nice. I didn't care for Natalie at first but now really like her so I'll give them a chance
Looking forward to the BBC putting up some initial training video's
