Time to think of other su­perla­tives

IS it not about time Strictly Come Danc­ing on the BBC, had a name-change to AMAZ­ING Come Danc­ing?

The use of the word “amaz­ing” has grown at a

pos­i­tively alarm­ing rate ev­ery­where … but Strictly most cer­tainly takes the cake for rep­e­ti­tion.

I’ve heard some of the pre­sen­ters use it three times in the same sen­tence, closely fol­lowed by the dancers. It’s as if the word had just ap­peared on the scene, maybe four years ago, and has now com­pletely taken over from the old stal­warts such as … fan­tas­tic, won­der­ful, fab­u­lous, great, ter­rific, splen­did.

Surely I’m not the only one who is, by now, fed-up hear­ing it? BOB DOU­GLAS, Cor­bridge
