Shirley’s a Strictly hit
Hooray for the arrival of Strictly Come Dancing’s sparkling new head judge Shirley Ballas (below). The champion ballroom dancer has totally renewed my interest in the show and makes a change from Len Goodman and his corny comments. All tens for the Queen of Latin. delight. At first I thought it was going to be one of those tedious celeb programmes with washed-up has-beens bickering. But no, it was an engaging series with five really personable characters, especially Lesley Joseph and Cleo Rocos, whose joie de vivre was a joy to behold. Surely another series beckons.
