Can you believe Strictly has been going for over a decade? I’d forgotten all about some of those earlier winners! I tend to prefer the ones that are more entertaining than good at dancing. The funny ones who do daft moves.
Remember when John Sargent caused a big stir because he stayed in and lots of people who were better at dancing got the boot before him? I think everyone forgot it’s just a TV show and not the bloomin’ Olympics!
I love Strictly because it’s fun to watch people who don’t know what they’re doing, learning how to do something completely alien to them. Someone who’s incredibly successful in their normal work suddenly finds that their previous success counts for nothing and they have to earn the respect of the judges by learning to dance.
It’s not as much fun as Dancing on Ice, where there was always the likelihood you’d see a celeb get their fingers sliced off – but it’s still good viewing!
