Tend to agree with comments above. I also think it was too early for a theme night and the Hollywood night is usually a good one when later and people have got into their stride.

Of course we get another theme night this weekend and the Halloween one is generally pretty poor, I might record this weekend and whizz through it...


I think the bottom two was fiar, I think Sid is better than the two in there. I think it was a pretty close call who should go although I think Michael was slightly better second time round and Jerry wasn't.  I did say up front I didn't think she would last long. Foreigners tend not to on strictly unless they are Australians in exile. Nonetheless right call. Think Michale will be next though unless he improves a lot. Then it gets more interesting.

I also have to admit that nobody is really getting my attention at the moment. Denise is good but can;t get that excited about her yert. Louis is the same for me, at the moment he tends to rely on his attributes without necessarily really dancing. then again we are only week 2!!

Lisa is really surprising me. She is genuninely light on her feet although no real kicks and flicks i nthe jive but then again that was always going to be her worst dance so can't argue too much.

Victoria is going to wind people up. She needs to stop being so soppy! Having said that and despite the wardrobe malfunction, I thought her Rumba was quite good. Remember that is the dance of death, only Rachel Stevens has even done it well IMO.

So the series is still warming up but glad we aren't hearing too much of the best line up ever because actually it isn't. Having said that it could make it quite close when we get to the business end of the series.

Kara did a great rumba too Brooks, but then she was in lust/love with Artem so that would help  Victoria was trying hard not to laugh at times.  I am wishing so hard for her to do well, I really hope there is a dance she can nail and get with it.

Apparently Ola has gone back to Poland (we have Iveta with Sid this week); her Mother has had a heart attack, I wonder if that is why both of them were a bit off?  I think it happened before the weekend but she wanted to stay for Sat night?

Poor Ola, hope her Mother is OK.

I wonder what rubbish we're going to get for Halloween?

I'm hoping that Natalie combines Scott's and Michael's Jive so we can get an axe coming through the door in a Shining tribute.

Kristina could wear a red cloak and use the height difference between her and Colin to recreate Don't Look Now.

Or perhaps a herd of Zombies could invade the studio and carry off Bruce and Tess?

I shall miss it, will be away for the weekend with no access to British TV.

Topsec, Yes Kara's Rumba wasn't bad in fairness but it is still a bit of a killer dance.

Yes Ola's mum has had a heart attack at end of last week. Apparently the dancer that stepped in for Jonny Ball is going to step in for her..

Oh no. Is James still dancing then?
24/10/2012 at 18:47

I've heard rumours that Fern is being bitchy towards Lisa and Jerry. Thats not going to win her votes. 

24/10/2012 at 18:59
Yeah,I heard that too. Not nice behaviour
24/10/2012 at 19:01

Might explain why so much coverage on ITT was about how popular Jerry has been backstage. 

24/10/2012 at 19:07
But Lisa and Robin are a really good pair and seem to have a brilliant time together.I was wondering why a couple of celebrities seemed to emphasise how popular Jerry was, and how friendly
24/10/2012 at 20:37

Are these 'rumours' coming from people who slated her for omitting to tell the GBP she had had a gastric ope - how very dare she 

24/10/2012 at 21:31

i think colin isn't getting any credit. he is a great mover, very composed and stylish, yet he gets mediocre scores and even less praise.

25/10/2012 at 07:40

Definitely seem to be judges faves and judges pet hates in terms of people rather than performances......

I'd wondered re the Jerry's great comments too but hadn't realised why......

My colleague has seats for Saturday - not that I'm jealous or anything, oh no not me..............much........

Oh dear - work calls...............

25/10/2012 at 11:08

I agree re: Colin, I think he has a lot of ability that isn't coming through particularly well. He isn't helped by the cheesy Bond-influenced routines that Kristina choreographs and it was far too early for the Argentine Tango last week. A normal tango would have been ok but the AT is more complicated and he didn't/couldn't do the footwork to get the higher scores from the judges.

Not nice about Fern/Lisa/Jerry

That's true. it is such an amazing dance but requires specialist skillz. bet daniel craig is good at it

25/10/2012 at 12:05

Of course, he'd probably be able to AT while picking off baddies on the other side of the room with cunningly thrown knives

haha. i do rather feel the whole james bond thing is wearing a bit thin. he isn't daniel craig ffs.


25/10/2012 at 19:29

Did I detect all's not well in the Sid-Ola camp?  On ITT he didn't seem at all happy with last week's routine or this week's music.

It's going to be difficult for him training with Iveta, the dancing with Ola on Saturday.  Did Ola insist, I wonder?

25/10/2012 at 20:32
I wondered why he couldn't dance with Iveta. I think it might be down to the viewers vote for him on Saturday.

Just wondered why we had 2 special weeks so close together. Shouldn't they really just be getting on with the dancing at this point?
