Another waste of taxpayers' (sorry, licence fee payers') money. The sooner the BBC is re-organised so that only those who want to watch this nonsense pay for it the better.

Is this a specific objection to Strictly or just a general objection to the licence fee? Do you think the BBC should only produce programmes that you personally want to watch?

Also, I probably wouldn't describe a programme that regularly gets 10 million viewers as a waste of money.

I could apply the same arguement to football coverage. Or indeed to all sorts of aspects of council tax and general taxation.

Evening All

Thought I'd best dig out this year's thread and find the good old Strictly gang

Like many haven't heard of half the slebs but am looking forward to the dresses and the journey........   Will have the usual problem of missing the first part of all the shows though

Now to try and get this thread into followed threads and to stay there - fat chance I say

I thought the celebrities dresses on opening night looked a lot better than usual, perhaps Julian has been lending a hand?

I'm having the same problem getting this thread to stay in the Followed Threads section

I reckon that's already happened Ironwolf

4 days to go!

Hi Folks!

Ok, I'm going to nail my colours to the mast and say that I'm going to be rooting for Julien and Rachel.  No idea whether they can dance or not, but they just seem quite nice.

Roll on the weekend!

i nearly said that I think patrick robinson is a dark horse but then thought that might be racist. i think he might do well, at any rate.

susannah reid and natalie gumede also to do well, and deborah meaden to do well for a few weeks in the surprisingly-nice-actually-jolly hockey sticks-fern-mumsy-sort. see also vanessa feltz.

mark benton to be the people's favourite.

I just fainted ....

I was a bit late watching as Saturday's show is at the wrong time while I'm trying to cook dinner.

Natalie, Patrick and Abby seem v. good, Ashley, Susanna, Sophie and Rachel have potential, Dave was a car crash and Julien was annoying.

Can't wait for next week

Why do some posts have a yellow flag & pirates next to the date ? 

Agree with the Dude think Patrick is dark horse as long as his 50year I old knee holds out. 

But he will get preferential treatment in casualty

that was a good start. not the exciting dazzling line-up in paper but they seem a fun bunch. i liked sophie's waltz but think she might struggle with the latin/jive etc.

Overall I think they all did pretty well for week one. Few were a bit stiff but that's not really surprising. No complete no-hopers a la Widdy/Sargent thankfully

Hi. Another Stricly Fan here!!! I'm not rooting for a celeb I'm rooting for Pasha - love him. Would love to see Julien leave next week.

Hairy Biker bloke ought to be first out, although I expect he's popular with the public so he may survive for a few weeks.

Susanna Reid FTW.

29/09/2013 at 13:59

Yeah, Dave Myers should probably be the first, but I think it will be Tony Jacklin. Probably not too many golf fans among the SCD viewers.

I liked Susanna Reid, she looked good and will be popular.

As a rugby fan I hope that Ben Cohen will do well, but I fear that CRH's comparison to a breeze-block was accurate. The hunk factor, his popularity amongst the gay community and sympathy for his hearing impairment will carry him, but not very far.

Hi, just caught up with things. 

Vanessa annoyed me even more than I thought she would - please let her be out too.  Tony not going to last long either I don't think. Dave could ride the comedy wave for a few weeks perhaps.

Susanna was good. Can't remember all the names yet, but there were some good performances for a first week.

Julien Macdonald's post dance performance did make me wonder if he hadn't been snorting a bit too much glitter backstage.
30/09/2013 at 08:17

Sir Not Dead doesn't get any better, does he?

His reading jokes from the autocue and then explaining them was even more painful. And he seemed to think that Susanna's Breakfast co-presenter is Bill Tufnell.
