Strictly Come Dancing 2020

Post by globus »

It's back! It will be a very strange affair this year and I'm not referring to the infamous affairs of the past!

This year's "celebs" are below. The pairings will be released on the show but the contestants are furious that they've alreadybeen leaked on social media (which I avoid like the plague).

Same here. If any of them are "YouTube sensations" then I haven't a clue

Not seen the social media leak but there's a rumour that Nadiya isn't getting a partner this year ! That's knocked some points off for me.

She's not on the pairing list, which I'll post on Sunday. She's out with Graziano Di Prima, Neil Jones and Nancy Xu.

Poor old Anton gets another "Widdecombe", paired with Jaqui who is odds on to be out first. But she looks as though she might beat those odds.

Bill gets Oti! That could be fun. He doesn't look too bad actually. JJ gets Amy Dowden.

Next week is the first dance trial and Ranvir and Giovanni get the Paso Doble. Tough start.

Well, that was much better than I thought. They've coped with the virus restrictions very well and the usual blogs have been praiseworthy.

"Celeb" Pro
Jacqui Smith Anton Du Beke
HRVY Janette Manrara
Maisie Smith Gorka Marquez
Jamie Liang Karen Hauer
JJ Chalmers Amy Dowden

Just to add, I thought Ashley Banjo was going to be the fourth judge but it was only Craig, Shirley and Motsi in the chairs.

Dave Arch is still going great guns.

Some of the background music for the pairs introductions was reall well chosen for the venues where they met.

Just checked the odds. Maisie is 6/4, HRVY is 9/2. Unsurprisingly Jacqui is 200/1.

Unsurprising but HRVY nudges Maisie to top spot. Caroline does exceptionally well and Jacqui lounges at the bottom.

Overall the standard was very high. No peoples vote till next week but the judges score rolls over.
