There.

TheOriginalPan Sun 09-Dec-12 21:48:34

There is the possibilities of injuries. Two dances, emotional strains, excess practice, tiredness, long hours Devo/James losing it with each other

Frankelstein Sun 09-Dec-12 21:48:52

Marking spot. Apologies for recent absence grin

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 09-Dec-12 21:53:13

I would love to see DVO leave the comp before Lisa. Great to DVO in the bottom two tonight! grin

Kimberley or Dani to win.

AnameIcouldnotthinkof Sun 09-Dec-12 21:54:40

I like REDs idea too.

RedTinsel Sun 09-Dec-12 22:00:09

Mordian - I want Flavia to win for the same reason. She had a near miss with Matt and a few duffers since. And she's lovely.
Although I don't mind if Dani or Kimberley win either.
Basically anyone except DVO and James.

Dotty342kids Sun 09-Dec-12 22:02:35

I can't help but wonder what impact being in the bottom two this week will have on DVO and James. I reckon he'll go all out for a crowd pleasing routine next week!
Is it me or have we had very few rumbas so far this series? Are they all being saved up for the semi / final?
Has anyone worked out who will be having to do which dances next week?

frankinsensible Sun 09-Dec-12 22:06:36

I think DVO and James know they've had it, they looked really shattered. When you're in the dance-off at this stage you know you haven't got the public support to go all the way and it doesn't matter how much you go on about how HARD you've worked if people just don't like you enough.

I want Louis and Flavia to win . I don't think Flavia has won before ? Or has she ? The fusion dance they did last night was so beautiful , I believe they were very under marked .
Kimberley ( just don't like her , think its her hair )
Pasha ( lovely )
DVO ... I have to say I quite like her and James (DH fancies Ola )
Dani and Vincent ... Hmmmm . He's a bit creepy
Robin and Lisa .. Very good fun to watch , but not winners sadly

AndiMac Sun 09-Dec-12 22:10:35

None of the professionals in at this stage have ever won the glitter all.

AndiMac Sun 09-Dec-12 22:11:02

Glitterball I mean of course!

Am I the only one who thinks that Lisa could actually win it, I think shes very popular. I would love Louis to win, but my little evil main wish is DVO out next (especially after James little outburst tonight) then Kimberley, I just cant take to her.

frankinsensible Sun 09-Dec-12 22:13:16

They haven't won the glitterball at all smile

Bakingnovice Sun 09-Dec-12 22:14:31

Oh please gOd no! No du berk to rePlace Bruce. Cannot stand du berk. His gurning. His face. His chin. Please don't even suggest it ladies. He is prize berk.

frankinsensible Sun 09-Dec-12 22:17:06

Actually Baking that is why he would make such a good replacement - the gurning, the face, the chin: all elements of Bruce present and correct, all he needs is the 'tache and the waistcoat.

shithappensx1000 Sun 09-Dec-12 22:19:01

Louis, Dani or Kimberley for me - all three seem to be really enjoying themselves.

AndiMac Sun 09-Dec-12 22:19:52

He wasn't bad on the few Hole in the Wall episodes I caught. Not his usual Strictly attitude. I think he'd be alright. But anyone would be better than Bruce. I would be better! And would make Tess look fabulous, no matter what jazzed up rug they threw on her for an excuse for a dress.

threesocksfullofchocs Sun 09-Dec-12 22:21:21

what did James say? I missed that bit

RedTinsel Sun 09-Dec-12 22:25:32

He said that she doesnt serve to be on the DO because she's not professionally trained, they do more practice hours than anyone else, She's got a daughter who she never sees. Whine, whine whine.

Serafima Sun 09-Dec-12 22:32:18

Hi all, I'm a lurker who's spent most of today avidly reading these threads - would anyone please be able to pm me the gossip mentioned at the last of the last thread? Thanks

threesocksfullofchocs Sun 09-Dec-12 22:35:21

RedTinsel thanks

TheOriginalPan Sun 09-Dec-12 22:40:15

Serafima - we're trying to keep this thread separate from the other one.The other thread is the place for the recent gossip.

LetUsPrey Sun 09-Dec-12 22:55:24

Will the two dances in next week's show be:

1. A dance the couple hasn't done so far; and
2. The group dance where Len gets his shepherd's crook out to hoik couples off the dance floor.

If Dani and Vincent are dancing the AT, does that mean we get the AT-off between them and Louis and Flavia? Flavia will properly maim Louis if he messes up an AT.

AndiMac Sun 09-Dec-12 22:59:20

If both Dani and Louis do an Argentina Tango, it will be interesting to watch the difference in them. Dani can probably do very precise steps and if she does it right, her acting will help set the mood of the dance. But if Louis is on good form and ready to show some emotion himself, I think he has a great presence that could really overshadow her. But that's more dependant on him putting on a show. I thought he did a bit of a smoulder with his rumba, so maybe he can do it for the AT even more.

frankinsensible Sun 09-Dec-12 23:09:31

He has got fantastic presence - some indefinable quality that makes me want to watch him. Darcy used the word 'tender' to describe him in the fusion dance and I thought that was an excellent description - he was sooo Swayze!

CocktailQueen Sun 09-Dec-12 23:11:21

I loved his Swayze dance- it was my fav so far. Go Louis!!!!
