It’s Strictly – Oh no, it must be nearly Christmas!

Well, another SCD line-up is announced and either I’m losing touch or the ‘celebrities’ really aren’t that well known. A very handy review at

http://www.mirror.co.uk/celebs/news/2009/08/26/strictly-come-dancing-we-rate-the-contestants-chances-on-the-dancefloor-this-year-115875-21624810/ at least includes pictures as well as descriptions of the stars. Good to see Linda Bellingham in there – I’ve always liked her and she is far more than just ‘the Oxo mum’ in my view – not that that has ever done her much harm! Also, good to see the lovely looking (if not quite untouched) Jo Wood, (ex-wife of Ronnie, who dumped her for a younger model) strutting her stuff with the somewhat over-inflated Brendan Coles. I never watched Footballer’s Wives, so don’t know Laila Rouass – but she looks as though she just might be able to dance – which would be an overdue bonus for the toothsome and sparkly Anton Du Beke – it’s about time he wasn’t palmed off with the most wooden female they could find in a large radius. My friend ‘Curious Girl’ (see link to her website on right hand side of this blog), is lamenting the line-up, but I recall being disappointed with the line-up announcement in previous years – only to feel I know all of them like old friends by the time we’re a few weeks in, AND developing firm favourites. I am sure this year will be no different.

And we haven’t even touched on losing Arlene, (very sorry to see her go – but how is it ageist to sack her when Brucie is still hanging in there), gaining Aleesha, (a lovely girl I thought based on her appearance on the show, great dancer, but no match for the Craig Revel-Horwood’s of this world) and occasional visits from Darcey Bussell, (I mean, ballet, really).  There’ll be more after the first show.

So, now it’s official – it really is nearly Christmas.
