    Strictly Come Dancing, Do you Love it or Hate it?

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Sep 05 2014, 17:56

    Sorry folks ....... but I just had to do a topic on Strictly Come Dancing. Yes, I love it - in fact I prefer it to The X Factor, it's probably no secret that Eddie hates it.
    But what are your views ?

    Presented this year by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, there will be 15 sparkling celebrities to grace the Strictly studio for the very first time on Sunday 7th September at 8pm on BBC One.

    So to celebrate ..... the wine is already chilling and our LCHF dinner will be served early ....can't have anything interupting the viewing  lol!

    What are your views on the subject ?

    All the best Jan

    Strictly? Sorry guys 'n' gals but Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrggghhh!! What a Face

    I'm more of a 'Dynamo-Magician impossible' show kinda guy! Dynamo's material never ceases to amaze me! I'm gutted that his recent series is reportedly his last. Sad

    I think this means Andy likes it too really! Rolling Eyes

    Yes I like Strictly, but I'm not sure I'll watch it this time, I've only watched a few hours of TV since May and I used to watch it for several hours a day. I'm not sure why but I prefer listening to music now.

    Love it, don't watch any of the others but love Strictly. My daughter and I went up to watch the live show two years ago. It was definitely an experience - last year in Shepherds Bush. We have applied for tickets this year - we will have to wait and see. Couldn't go last year as daughter was pregnant and baby due in October but are trying for this year. Fingers crossed.

    Strictly Come Dancing, I expect some of them do, they are so up themselves. Check out the Z list celebs on this series, jeez I would rather spend a night digging trenches that watch Strictly. Don't tell Jan I said this, she is besotted with the program. No Strictly would be grounds for divorce in our household. affraid

    Regards Eddie

    Do hope your application for tickets is successful.

    I just love the look and colour of the costumes - although it is true some of the dancers costumes are ......well lets say a little skimpy !!  

    The band and singers are usually brilliant - it's Dave Archer and band/orchestra I think.

    Counting down 'til Sunday sunny

    Nice one Graham! I do like her material and when Paloma isn't singing she's got a great sense of humour and is really down to earth from what I've seen of her when she's been interviewed. Smile

    Eddie's just gone as white as a sheet - after reading my earlier post he gasped.

    "But tomorrow is Friday it can't be on?"    "Yes" I answered ....then swiftly poured him a stiff brandy to help recovery lol!

    I love Strictly! Will be glued to the TV (well the lap top anyway) every Saturday night till Christmas, and I even watch Strictly take 2. Its the best thing about September, and the dreadful run up to Christmas.
    Can't abide X Factor so no competition there.
    I love Bake off too :-)

    For Jan1

    Post by Sarah on Fri Sep 26 2014, 15:10

    Having read the forum (although not contributed much), I gather that lovely Jan1 is a fan of SCD.

    This song sprang to mind - Mr Jan1 take note! Apologies to Shania but I think Jan should adopt this version of the chorus...... Cool

    ''Honey, I'm home and I've had  a hard day
    Pour me a white wine and oh by the way
    Rub my dancing feet, give me something to eat
    Ideally my favourite lowcarb treat
    Honey, I'm back, my feet are killing me
    I need to relax and watch Strictly
    Get off the phone, stop being a moan,
    Hey, hey, now honey I'm home."

    Before you watch be warned, the ad I saw was Peter Andre advertising oven chips!

    Just come off the phone ......it was a call from my eldest son reminding me about watching 'Strictly' tonight at 9pm - wasn't that good of him sunny

    I watched the Shania video and think your words fit so well Sarah ...thank you.

    I'm a little worried at the moment because it's The Ryder Cup Highlights on BBC2 at 8.30 but sshhhhh don't tell Eddie   lol!  

    The wine is chilling, and I'm looking forward to a pleasant evening putting my feet up.

    All the best Jan
