I heard on the radio news early yesterday morning that Kevin (?)had stated that he was happy to dance with a male partner.

Will they go down that route?
I'm sure I read something last week that the BBC had said there will be no same sex couples this year.

That’s 4 more than me, though I do recognise Dwayne from Death in Paradise, just did not know his real name.

The odd thing is that I do recognise and know the names of most of the Pro dancers, so they have become the celebrities.

I know who almost all of them are, but a fairly underwhelming line up I think.

Looking forward to seeing Kate Silverton in translucent spandex and a micro skirt lick

darren gough and mark ramprakash won in previous seasons - I think swanny will do ok as he doesn't take himself too seriously and he's up for a laugh. depends on the partner though of course.

dissapointed neil jones isn;t getting a celeb again this year - if its his choice then fair enough but if not we're missing out as he is a terrific dancer and choreographer.

as for the celebs, well I didn;t know that many of them in the last few years but it turned out well enough.

Allegedly all the contestants got a flat fee of £25k this year.

I know it's all make believe, and we will a suspension of disbelief, but "they literally have no idea who their partners are" rather sticks in the throat since some of the celebs have already posted on Twitter that they know.

Oh well, on with the show. We'll pretend.

Not forgetting the those who have never danced - so they say.

Darcy looks lovely.

Anton and Suzanna was pretty much a given

She's looking amazing for 56. Amazing full stop. I hope I look as good as her when I get to her age.
