Here you go - I've got mince pies, apple pie and loads of speciality alcofrolic creams to go with them, dig in

Although I'm not a Denise fan, I am tired of all the Denise bashing that's gone on, particularly on another forum (cos people are more polite here), and if I were Denise I think I'd be looking pretty fed up by now with it all. I thought it was really nice of Robin and Lisa to say what they did about her. I feel that this year's Strictly has been tarnished by all the ill will that's been directed at her, and it's probably left her feeling rather battered and bruised by it all.

Peeking at The Other Site is ok, as long as no-one is starting threads like "I hate Denise!!!!!!!!!!" or "Lisa is such a fat blob, why is she allowed on TV?!?!?!"

I thought the stories that appeared about Denise's problems with Johnny Vaughan and Andrew Lloyd Webber were pretty misjudged if the intent was to get more sympathy from Strictly voters. On the other hand, she might have been wanting to sell those stories for a while and waited until public interest was high so she could get more money  for them!

The thing I'll remember about this series is the generally high standard of competitors and that the judges (despite some dodgy scoring of Louis ) all knew what they were talking about!

Well, Denise probably hasn't helped her own cause, but that could be down to her feeling threatened and becoming defensive - who knows?  Other than the DVO business I have really enjoyed Strictly, and will really miss it after the final. I suppose the high feeling it has generated shows how popular the show is with people.

i am pleased to have utterly converted the Bidie-In

she is now a devoted fan and will be bereft after christmas day.

*wipes cream from around mouth*

Just caught up with ITT Monday on the iplayer under the excuse of having a chuck out in my office 

In tears again with Lisa  but interested to hear her defence of Denise and thought Denise handled the whole issue very well - better than James!  

TBH every year there's someone who's patently not as popular with the public but if you put yourself into the public eye I think you have to suck it up and accept it. I think if she looked more upset and less sour when in the dance off she might win more fans but I guess we don't always think to control how we show our disappointment in the moment.....  I certainly take nothing away from her ability although having now seen the rumba I am disappointed.........thought it was supposed to be great but got no real feeling from it...

Oh well - roll on Saturday - I suspect the lovely Louis might be first out as he just can't please the judge and after that...........well, I really don't mind / care

As Saturday will be just down to the public vote I think that Denise will be first out.

I've enjoyed this series as there has been no obvious winner and the final looks like it will be really close. But I haven't enjoyed that with fusion week people.are doing fewer dances so it's less easy to compare them. I think if they have fusion next year they need to reduce the dances, I mean do we really need Salsa, Samba and Cha Cha? Especially when I struggle to tell them apart  Or maybe drop one's of the waltzes? At the moment I think only Denise has done the Rumba which doesn't seem fair.

18/12/2012 at 20:36

i still don't know the difference between salsa and samba. maybe drop foxtrot too.

18/12/2012 at 23:17

I thouight Louis had done the rumba but maybe I'm fantasising. i still think he's great with Flavia and am hoping he pulls it all out of the bag when needed especially if they are required to do the AT. Would be brilliant I'm sure!

19/12/2012 at 07:57

Louis has done the rumba - can't remember what he got for it but it's generally known as the dance of death for the blokes and he managed to survive to it must have been half decent

Didn't realise it was all public vote Saturday - guess I'd best charge the phone up  oh and head off to work now so I can afford the calls!!

19/12/2012 at 08:01
It was the one where we commented on his hands and arms I think
19/12/2012 at 10:01

Louis did the rumba together with the tango in his fusion dance.

Apparently the judges choice for him on Saturday night is the salsa. Wasn't that the Dirty Dancing routine? I thought that some of the judges criticised & marked down for not being a "proper salsa" so I'm not sure why they have picked that for him to dance again - unless they are now admitting that they were wrong and the routine and lift were actually amazing

19/12/2012 at 10:06

Flav said yesterday she was putting more salsa steps in.

19/12/2012 at 10:41

Hmmm - going swim training Saturday (which clashes with Strictly) is looking increasingly unlikely now...............is this very wrong? 

19/12/2012 at 11:47
We have a big carolling engagement on Saturday right when strictly starts. Hmm, what on earth am I going to do with miss by eck?
19/12/2012 at 13:29

I will be sat at home with pink things to eat and drink   I don't know why it's pink, I've always done that - they don't even wear pink dresses much these days!

Looking forward to the final.  As we have mentioned, I think it is Denise out first (I wonder if the BBC may think more carefully about bringing in a 'ringah' - I doubt it, the viewing figures are up so they may like the controversy?)

Have no idea who will win, I think it is between Louis and Kimberley, I guess if I did have a slight favourite, it's Louis.

I honestly think some of the people that post on the site that must not be named are loopy, I think the idea of 'if you haven't got anything good to say, don't say anything at all' has passed most of them by, there are some really awful posts 

19/12/2012 at 14:34

I'll be at home with party food and my Team Louis flag

I think it's between Louis and Kimberley, I hope Louis does something amazing for his showdance (and it has some Argentine Tango content - really disappointed we didn't get to see that from Flavia this year).

19/12/2012 at 18:12

Just watched last nights ITT and the music for his showdance is quite steady so it's not a 'fast' dance, although for the life of me I can't remember what it is and I only watched it 20 mins ago   I am getting old
