Is this the best or worst series of Strictly?

Scottish Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing is my favourite pro­gramme, so I don’t agree with peo­ple com­plain­ing that they do not know this year’s celebri­ties (Let­ters). By the fi­nal, they will feel like old friends. As for the judges, I do miss Len Goodman and Darcey Bus­sell, but am happy with the cur­rent line-up. I re­spect the opin­ion of Craig Revel Hor­wood, whose mark­ing is spot on. So lighten up and en­joy good all-round fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment.

THE ridicu­lous dress­ing up for the Hal­loween edi­tion of Strictly de­tracted from the danc­ing, as has the in­tro­duc­tion of non-ap­pro­pri­ate mu­sic for the paso doble and tango.

M. DAVEY, Cas­tle Bromwich, W. Mids.

HOW re­fresh­ing to have some lesser-known celebri­ties with no danc­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, which had not been the case in pre­vi­ous years. All ages of my fam­ily from eight to 70 are lov­ing this year’s Strictly.

WHAT a big change in the pro­gramme that has been the main­stay of Satur­day night. There is a strong pos­si­bil­ity that we will have same-sex part­ners in fu­ture series and have been told that this week­end there will be two male pro­fes­sion­als danc­ing to­gether. Why do the pro­duc­ers as­sume this will be ac­cept­able to its many fans? We have al­ready seen the male pro­fes­sional dancer Jo­hannes Radebe per­form in high heels. Why not have a sep­a­rate pro­gramme for same-sex danc­ing?

I also dis­like the male judges mak­ing sex­ual com­ments about some of the male dancers. If Len Goodman had dared to make such a re­mark about a fe­male dancer, there would have been uproar.


STRICTLY has fi­nally lost the plot. It should be re­named Strictly Come Gymnastics. Throw­ing your part­ner over your shoul­der isn’t danc­ing.

MARJ VOADEN, Rhoose, S. Glam.

LET’S have some praise for Strictly: the fan­tas­tic cos­tumes, the in­ven­tive spe­cial-ef­fects, Dave Arch’s tal­ented or­ches­tra and singers, and, of course, the pro­fes­sional dancers and chore­og­ra­phers who give us the ‘wow’ fac­tor.

Mrs C. DAVIES, Dud­ley, W. Mids.
