    It's officially the beginning of the end of summer - the Strictly line-up is being announced!

    First up, Katie Piper.

    I think I like her.

    I love Danny John jules. He’s the voice of one of the head-swapping fiery creatures from Labyrinth.

    Hmm, like DJJ, but he's another properly trained dancer :hmm:

    Same with Faye, I guess!

    Yes. This. And if he goes out first as per I'm going to fume.
  9. Lord Camomile

    Lord Camomile Lemonade socialist

    Why would he go out first :confused:

    Because a black celebrity almost always does.

    Really?! I clearly haven't been paying attention.

    But yeah, would be astonished if it's DJJ; he's a properly skilled dancer and I think he'll have the personality to win over the audience. No idea if he'd win, but at least not to go out first!

    fizzerbird Always there when I need me...

    When does it start?
  13. Rebelda

    Rebelda Nearly as bad as Badgers

    Really really.

    I've seen skilled dancers with heaps of personality and brown skin go out in week one more times than I'd like to Google-count. We're in pretty shit company when it comes to being a strictly fan.

    Every year it's the same: I know one or two at the start, tops. But that doesn't matter one tiny bit. IT'S NEARLY TIME FOR STRICTLY!!! Yay!
    And anyway, Strictly is watched by all age groups, so the chances of the booking people finding fourteen (or however many it is) people that everyone who watches it has heard of is about the same as the odds of me winning the Euro Millions tonight and the Lottery tomorrow.

    Indeed. We'll go on a "journey" with all of them.

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    Just seen that Seann Walsh has been added. He used to be a barman in my old local.

    Out of 15 series, the first person out has been white 12 times. So, only 3 times has the first person out been someone with “brown skin”. In each case, it was someone I had not heard of, so it’s possible that others hadn’t either, so they didn’t have a fan base, or whatever it is that makes the GBP keep people like Anne Widdacombe in for so long.

    On the other hand, the show has been won four times by someone who is BAME.

    It may be that people forget the first person to be voted out?

    But anyway, it’s all on Wikipedia.

    Will Dr Ranj's eyebrows be a competing couple in their own right?

    The Strictly launch event is happening today outside work. I've had to walk the long way round for three days because they've been building a massive set complete with glitterball. Might have to go and celeb spot in a bit - the pros were rehearsing earlier. :D
