Well we traditionally have a thread - so I am starting one.

All mothers of contestants are strictly (!!!) barred!

I'm rooting for JJ Chalmers! (I hope that's his name)

EllanVannin Sat 17-Oct-20 10:49:10

I don't even know who's in the running.

DanniRae Sat 17-Oct-20 10:51:38

Really looking forward to watching it. Thanks kittylester for starting the thread smile

I shall be hunkered down on my sofa with a glass of wine, really looking forward to it.

Grandmabatty Sat 17-Oct-20 11:07:39

I'm looking forward to 'the journey' wine chilling already.

FannyCornforth Sat 17-Oct-20 11:17:10

I'd love Caroline Quentin to do well.

Charleygirl5 Sat 17-Oct-20 11:23:40

I do not really know who is taking part yet and I doubt if I will have heard of more than 4 of them. I have heard of Caroline Quentin but I have forgotten her past.
Do we have a new judge this year?

merlotgran Sat 17-Oct-20 11:56:38

I haven't seen the line up either but really looking forward to it. We'll have our usual family sweepstake on facebook messenger to see who eventually gets the winner.

Bridie22 Sat 17-Oct-20 12:00:33

I'm supporting ranvir .

Whitewavemark2 Sat 17-Oct-20 12:06:30

I haven’t a clue whose taking part apart from the boxer person, who is in a same sex duo.

I do like strictly, but have found myself getting bored the last couple of years especially with the chat. So hope I can get into it this year.

EllanVannin Sat 17-Oct-20 12:09:30

Just seen the line-up and had forgotten about Nicola and her smile, so that'll do me.

Luckylegs Sat 17-Oct-20 12:42:17

It’s supposedly a big reveal (tonight?) as to which celebrity gets which professional so how come we know already that Nicola wotsit has got Katya? Presumably, they have all known and been practising together for weeks. It’s just another smokescreen, like the supposed Sunday night results show, fooling none of us!

Charleygirl5 Sat 17-Oct-20 12:45:27

I do like Nicola and she will be fit so, in theory, should do well.

Also bored with all the chit chat and daft sequences in between the actual dances, unnecessary padding making the programme far longer than it needs to be. I wish they'd changed the format somewhat.

Sparklefizz Sat 17-Oct-20 13:47:04

Thank goodness! Something decent to watch on Saturday nights! Don't care who the celebs are .... just want to see some wonderful dancing.

joannapiano Sat 17-Oct-20 13:49:14

Read in one of the papers today, that the whole band is not allowed to be there, so parts are being pre-recorded. Shame, as I love the live music.

paddyanne Sat 17-Oct-20 13:59:11

I'm rooting for JJ tooKitty I've known his family since before he was born and know the devastaion they felt when he was so badly injured .I heard the Edie Stark interview with him on BBC Scotland and it brought me to tears.
He is a wonderful human being, a real product of his upbringing and I hope he does well in this ..as he has in everything else he's been involved with

Why has Claudia come out in her pyjamas? confused

Oopsminty Sat 17-Oct-20 20:07:36

Crikey phoenix!

You must have terribly glamorous night attire!

Sparklefizz Sat 17-Oct-20 20:11:22

Aaarrgh! I hate this part where all the celebs pretend they have got the partner they wanted. Caroline Quentin was really irritating. I had hoped they were going to miss out this bit.

And phoenix I agree - Claudia looks terrible.

sart Sat 17-Oct-20 20:20:33

Love strictly! Can't wait!!

Ellianne Sat 17-Oct-20 20:25:32

I'm missing that nice young boy, A J I think his name is. The sort of boyfriend I would have been pleased for my DD to bring home!

Calendargirl Sat 17-Oct-20 20:30:07

Looking at GN while also keeping an eye on Strictly.

Not really interested in all the beforehand chat and meet ups. Find the launch shows something to get through before better stuff later.

Think I recognise Caroline, Nicola, and the one from breakfast although I don’t watch it. Never heard of the young lad on at the minute, Harvey?

Oh, and Jamie who is from a famous biscuit family I think. I recognise him from an old Bake Off.

Oopsminty Sat 17-Oct-20 20:37:31

It's Hrvy apparently!
