Strictly sofa-bound

EDP Norfolk - - Columnist -

At this time of year we se­cretly hope we don’t get in­vited out at the week­end. As a fam­ily, we are self­con­fessed Strictly ad­dicts. We plan around the pro­gramme, and if one or more of us is ab­sent, we record it and watch it back to­gether as soon as pos­si­ble.

Ob­vi­ously it’s a BBC show, but work­ing for the BBC doesn’t help what­so­ever. Ev­ery year we ap­ply for pub­lic tick­ets to sit in the au­di­ence, and ev­ery year we get none. So the sofa it is! I was brought up with Bru­cie and

The Gen­er­a­tion Game. It was re­quired fam­ily view­ing, in the way

Strictly is now. Thank you, Sir Bruce, for bring­ing us gen­er­a­tions of plea­sure. We will con­tinue to raise a glass to you on Satur­day nights.
