She does seem to be less interesting than the others

she seems fine.....just not very cuddly. difficult to warm to.

it's difficult to imagine anyone voting for her. she is a good dancer, but not as good as dani or denise...and not as fun.

but now I feel mean and harsh.

She's actually gone up in my estimation since I simply knew her as the third best looking one out of Girls Aloud.

12/11/2012 at 19:26

i only knew cheryl. do they each have a different regional accent?

12/11/2012 at 19:30
Erm.... I don't know! And I should having a pop obsessed pre-teen.
12/11/2012 at 19:56

It's strange, I've almost missed the fact that she's there

I find Nimble Kimble instantly forgettable, which is odd because she is good looking and a nice dancer, it's just that when they show the highlights I tend to think 'Oh yes, her. She danced too, didn't she?'

But it was the right result, and Fern probably lasted a week beyond her time. I'm sure that if she'd been in the dance off last week she'd have gone.

ditto all that yeo said!

12/11/2012 at 21:04

yup, me too

I disagree. As a dancer I find Kimbers preferable to Danni. Yes Danni's good and 'gets' all the steps however...  not her fault but her body and short limbs get in the way of her being really good (for me) - not helped by some atrocious costume choices. Knee high socks on a munchkin anyone? There's also something a bit stompy about her movement  - although she is light on her feet. But she did look like a teenager in a strop outside that phonebox.

Kimberley has actually suprised me with some fairly subtle acting. I tihnk she makes lovely shapes, has musicality (nothing to do with her being an G'aloudster) AND she works hard and is nicely self critical without being needy. She looks great in the outfits and is a pleasure to watch.

sharkie, Nimble Kimble is a good dancer, and more pleasing on the eye to watch, but she doesn't come across as well some of the other dancers, like Dani, who come across better in the interviews


Oh, and I agree that some of Dani's costumes have been atrocious

I'm just catching up on Saturday's Strictly - loving the handbags over Louis! What is Craig on?!

13/11/2012 at 09:16

Listened to Craig's explanation of the low marks on ITT last night, and whilst I understand where he's coming from, I still think 6 was too low. However, he admitted that he had assumed the other judges would be giving 8s, in which case his 6 wouldn't have looked too harsh, and he was shocked when they all gave 9s.

13/11/2012 at 12:04

I love Kimberley! She's my favourite from Girls Aloud. Not that I listen to Girls Aloud  

I think its the Curse of the Mid-table rather than the public actively disliking her, based on what I've seen so far, I think she deserves to be there in the quarter finals. If someone like Victoria stays at her expense I'll be annoyed

I'll have to watch ITT on iPlayer, I'd like to hear what Craig has to say for himsel!

13/11/2012 at 13:46

Hmm me too - I missed it last night

I usually appreciate Craig's criticisms and he does pick up on a lot of points but as someone said earlier he does seem to have marked down on the basis of all the "faults" rather than up on what was there.......and didn't he give Fern a 6 too?

Comparisons anyone?

I think Kimberley got a shock BUT agree with a few others. She is good so people assumed she would stay but because she was mid-table (it was a close evening) fell foul of the well known mid-table scenario. Happens every time.

Actually I think the Loud Girls do pretty much have regional accents and must admit that Kimberley doesn't help when she opens her mouth. I can handle Geordie and Northern Irish but hers is a bit grating (hides behind a wall whilst expecting a Yorkshire backlash on that one - yes I am a Southerner but my wife is a Geordie (not its not Cheryl alreet Pet)) 

I must admit for a moment I was worried that Kimberley AND Dani might end up in the bottom two then somebody good would have gone. As it was Fern going was right and she knew that she was out before she even went on the floor for the dance-off, which short of Kimberley falling over right. No chance of that you needed to be a male professional to fall over on Saturday - what was going on!

Michael could well have gone because the poor guy just can't do Latin.

He will survive if doing Ballroom at Wembley but if he is doing Latin in a big space he will look awful.

Richard is also on borrowed time, He got the one dance that was really going to suit him this week and that kept him alive.

It is quite close for the rest really. Nicky is the one that I always forget is in it and not sure he is that great and Victoria is on borrowed time a bit. She is another Michael, pretty good ballroom, all over the place in latin.

For me at the moment Louis, Denise, Kimberley are the front runners,

Dani is pretty good as well.

 Lisa is a great character and really good on her feet but probably semis is the best she will achieve unless she can find something more in the next few weeks.

Then Nicky floating around unconviincingly.

Michael and Victoria - Need a ballroom to survive, if either have Latin at Wembley it could look really awful.

Richard bringing up the rear though and would be my choice for next to go.

From this Yorkshire girl, I agree that Kimberlys accent is a bit grinding, I am from North Yorkshire (the best bit ) and she is from Bradford or Barnsley and has that really flat West Yorks accent.  I was very surprised when she was in the bottom two, it is the mid table shocker but I think it is also that she, lovely girl though she is, is just a bit dull and and just doesn't seem to spark much interest.  She is a nice dancer though (see? - nice???!)

Denise, brilliant dance and dancer but just no, she is just too professional, she makes most of the others look what they are; amateurs, for that reason it just isn't right that she is there.

Only Charleston I have ever liked was Chris & Ola, Richard did nothing too change that.  Can't decide if I like him or not.  He does come out with some hilarious comments but they all feel a bit 'staged'  Love Erin though.  Seems a shame she has descended to hanging upside down having her arse slapped by Richard

Victoria is getting better but still feel Brendan drags her round, think she has a couple of weeks more at most.

Dani, fabulous dancer and she seems OK but whether it is the age difference (between me and her, not Vincent and her!) I just don't warm too her.  I agree with Sharkie she is too short and dumpy to look elegant and those god damn awful tattoo's.

Fern, looked more relaxed and a shame she went, but it was her time.

Nicky surprised me, it was better than I thought.  Maybe the cane use was to help his posture, draw the eye away from floppy arms or something but it worked.  I would say  he has a couple more weeks too.

Michael - just love him and Natalie.  This is the first time I have really warmed to Natalie, I always felt she was uber competitive.  There was a serious cock up in the middle but they rescued it perfectly and the lifts were great.  He has American Smooth this weekend so safe for another week at least!

Louis.  Brilliant.  Nuff said.  My winner.

ps. his personality is coming through now and the relationship with Flavia is showing now

Lisa and Robin were good, I think they have a great partnership and I hope they are in till the end.

I would say they will go out in this order now:

Richard, Nicky, Kimberly, Michael, Victoria, Dani, Lisa, Denise, Louis

All very dependent on dances in a particular week.  Mind you, aren't they going on to two dances after Wembley?

Top sec - Um interesting go out list, mainly because you have Kimberley (yes she is Bradford) in so early. I actually quite like her. You expect pop stars to be up themselves and she isn't and can take criticism. Mind you my wife doesn't like her, although does think she is a good dancer.. Might be a male/female split thing here.

Oh and the point about Dani and those Tattoos. Every week I think she has got out of a car, rubbed her legs down the sill and got them covered in mud and then remember they are tattoos. OK I don't like tattoos. especially not on women but they do look horrible, although not as much as the arboretum that Cheryl has wrapped around her upper thigh

Interesting comment about Natalie, she is a bit of a babe actually but we are seeing a bit more of her personality. Probably a masterstroke pairing an Aussie with a cricketer

I guess they will up to two dances each week soon. Not sure if it is after Wembley or not though.

A couple of good round-ups there but I still miss John from Wales. 

14/11/2012 at 19:02


Darn - still at work so missing ITT for the 2nd time this week.........there aren't enough hours in the day to iplayer everything I keep missing... 

Oh well - c'est la vie

Liking the "go out" list and wouldn't really change it other than Kimvberly maybe staying longer as her fans realise they'll have to vote for her and hitting the phones.............
