Evening all, late to the party as BBC took an age to upload the results show and I daren't go anywhere on t'interweb vaguely strictly related because some pratt always posts who has gone even before the Sunday show. So watched it this lunchtime.
Really enjoyed Sat & Sun shows.
Thought Sophie was excellent, has she 'peaked' too soon though?
Shame Fiona messed up, was looking good until then. She really is a stunning woman though!
Poor Ben, tries his hardest but all that muscle does not make for a bendy body!
Quite liked Vanessa although it was a bit samey as Pamela's first dance.
Abbey was really pouty, understandably as it was a bit of a mess - were the judges watching a different dance though - the scores seem to indicate that? Just wish she would concentrate a bit more on dancing and a bit less on looking at herself in the training room - maybe selective editing or maybe me being bitchy!
Really enjoyed Ashley & Ola, that's my sort of dancing
Pretty much no choice for Tony going, he just wasn't going to cut it, not sure why they ask people that old/unfit. I am not being ageist here but I believe everybody has an 'interview' where they show whether they have any ability or not, surely at that time the producers must have been able to see that it wasn't going to work?? Maybe I am misinformed though? Anybody know?
Nobody I really dislike at the moment (Julian excepted - not that keen on Janette either!)
If you haven't read/heard of it and have plenty of time google Mighty Monkseal. His (I think) take on the shows are hilarious. Not as good as JohnfromWales but still a hoot.
Hello all, but late to the thread but we are across in US again so I can only watch it on iplayer and I had trouble downloading Sat's episode.
It's sooo good to have it back again. I'm unsure who my fave is at the moment, liked Susanna and Sophie, Natalie may suffer from the 'ringah' of this series, too good to start with I think.
Wanted to dislike Abbey but actualy thought her dance was fab and she came across quite well afterwards. Rachel was better than I thought after the launch show, think Latin will show up her faults though. Hairy Biker was hilarious and will survive on that for a few weeks. Ben was very wooden but will last a while yet and may have a 'j' word! Patrick good too, as was Deborah. In fact I pretty much liked everybody except ... Julien ... the sooner he goes the better, in fact reading DS, he will beat Tony out at this rate!
ITT back tonight - in fact I guess it is on right now! I'll download it and watch it tonight
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
Hi Deidre! Welcome to the thread When is your next Marathon?
Tracey, my half is 27 Oct so loads of time to get a few more runs in, although back in US now, temps in the low/mid 30's so may struggle a bit with the heat/humidity, I think there will be some early mornings happening!
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!
