Your resident fan and pseudo expert will get this up and running soon.

Usual rules apply. Read the label. It says Rugby is > than SCD.

But it's fun.

Ah, that explains it so. I'm watching it for the first time this evening and I hadn't a clue who anybody was bar Mike Bushall and Anneka Rice.

Tonight's line up. A possible antidote for the drubbing we got.

We should have waltzed around the Saffas with a quickstep. We looked more like

A lot of John Sergeants

One contestant dropping out, does that mean there needs to be one week when no one is eliminated to fill the allotted schedule?

In the dance off were Vicountess Emma & Aljaž and Mike & Katya.

The judges voted unanimously to save Mike and Katya.

Emma in serious tears when she had to leave.

Has Anton and t'other Emma as slippery as eels? They were bottom (22) in the judges scores.

Not sure yet how the format will change with Will and Janette out.

Now we are getting down to the nitty gritty, I'll try and add a bit of flavour.

I've kept this low key with the RWC in full swing. I've yet to pick a winner. I'll pop up the betting stakes.

The Management and I are going for a dance lesson on Wednesday with good friend Jo.

Corby Ice Rink is now open so she gets to pull on the (rather good) skates.

Pip, pip!

They'll just have 3 in the final instead of 4.
No major change at all to the format. It's happened previously anyway.

That seems to be the consensus. By the way, the BBC site is way behind the newspapers. I might put in a moan. They should not be beaten by the newspapers or the blogs.

Getting the latest on the next round of contestants, dances, music titles and artists, you don't head for the BBC.

OT: Trumpist Sean Spicer apparently keeps getting lowest votes from the judges in the US version and is saved by public votes. Democrat viewers losing their shit in amusing and predictable fashion.

Carry on.

Week 8 pairings and dances.

Not sure whether it will be Kevin or Neil dancing with Alex. The latter has an injury, Kevin stepped in at the last moment previously.

Great to see Deniece Williams as a song choice. From "Footloose". Great disco number. I used to cue that in quite a lot as a kick off when I was a DJ.

Week 9 and it's Blackpool. The Management's old stomping ground.

The ballroom is spectacular and the floor very springy!

Mike and Katya had to go in week 8. I've no idea how Michelle and Giovanni were voted (by the public) to be in the dance off. It was one sided.

Rumours abound that Alex wanted to stay with Kevin when Neil returned after injury.

The producers have put a ban on contestants whooping it up in Blackpool Town. Don't blame them.

I had a bit of a scuffle going from a car park to Harry Ramsden's. (Not the best fish and chip shop up there. Try Seniors.)

Here's tonight's line up.

Sadly, no. This is "Strictly". We cannot stoop to that level! You can find them on the internet.

Last night's judges' scores below. Michelle has gone from hero to zero. As the public voted her into the dance off last time, she looks doomed.

Ha! There are quite a few sites that will cater for your needs.

Feel free to pop them up on here. Some of the really pretty ones have sadly been eliminated, much to the chagrin of many.

Well, the inevitable happened. Michelle and Giovanni have gone. Apart from a rather pale dancing performance, very strange outfits. She looked like Madame de Pompadour.

Anton's popularity has not waned, yet.

After the glamour and glitz of Blackpool Tower Ballroom, we are back to Elstree.

Really not sure who might go next.

when you say "yet", do you suspect that it will?

The bookies have Kelvin "the trained dancer" down as red hot favourite, followed by Karim "the strictly journey" in second.

Sitting out at 12/1, I'm very tempted by a punt on Anton "the people's favourite" and Emma "perma smile soup star"

It was just "tongue in cheek, AR. The cheesy grinner always seems to do well. I think the producers usually pit him with a no-hoper, like Ann Widdecombe! He's got a reasonable run with Emma.

Here are the odds from "Odds Checker". He'll probably creep through to week 11.

Saffron doesn't have the votes so she's in danger next week.
Chris is utterly useless, as is his alleged pro partner but they obviously have a big following.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Alex and Saffron in the dance-off next week.

I think Chris is going to struggle. The Paso Doble is a bit fiendish. Went for a dance lesson with the Management and managed a reasonable Samba.

She thinks the Foxtrot is the most technically difficult.

Hope it's enjoyable. Dancing is really not very easy to make it look seamless.

I'll look up the music choices. "Walking on Sunshine" is Katrina and the Waves. Who on earth is "Take Me To Rio Collective?"

Do let me know. I stopped around 1984!

Interesting. Must admit I haven't read anything to suggest that's the case but did get a vibe, certainly found myself thinking "Would she rather Kevin stayed as her partner?"

Initial reports are that she wanted to stay with the Grimsby wonder.

Lot's of media "dancing" around this. To be avoided.

I just had our dance lesson. To this.

Lost In Music

You can do this in 3/4 (a bit manic) or 4/4.

Gosh. Really? I read the DT everyday, in the full and unexpurgated form (mainly for the Crossword).

Nothing of note. (Not a Tory, or indeed any party follower. I vote for the best candidate.)

By the way GOSH is Great Ormond Street Hospital. It's a marvel.

So Saffron and AJ hit the buffers in Week 10. The Great British pubic astonishingly put Karim and Amy in the dance off after they had top scored with the judges as did the inevitable Kelvin and Oti.

Anton marches on with Emma. His celebration was somewhat OTT!

Karim is technically skilled but, as CRH said, there's absolutely no personality or life in his dancing. He's like the session musician everybody wants in the studio but nobody wants on stage.

Plus these couple's choice dances are absolute cack.

Oh, and Sarries are cheating cnuts.
