Frankin
Incoherent, that's the word I was thinking of, or thought it might be his false teeth he couldn't get his tongue round <grin>

I'd like to see Brucie dancing ballet with Janet Ball again, it was in black and white on BBC 1 yonks ago, but can't find a video of it. I thought he danced well, then. He was wearing black tights, I seem to remember and Janet was very tall

Love Karen's dress on ITT tonight.

AndiMac Mon 10-Dec-12 20:44:15

I had to laugh at the pace she set for the Pro Challenge. So cute.

HalleLouja Mon 10-Dec-12 21:43:14

I never liked Zoe until she was on SCD. She went up in my estimations.

RedTinsel Mon 10-Dec-12 21:44:14

What's going on with the Threads I'm on tonight, I've been back on the gossipy thread again.

Karen and the pro challenge was funny, I'm imagining Erin sidling up to her beforehand 'dont go too fast or they wont count them. You've got two minutes you, pace yourself....<evil grin >'

Thanks AndiMac for the very prompt pm.

Did anyone else see Brendan hold up 5 fingers after Lisa's dance? I thought there was a feeling among the pros that her dance was way overmarked.

I'm finding it hard to know who to support this year. Dani is good but lacks the wow factor for me. DVO is great to watch but is very hard to warm to and has of course banged on too much about how hard it is for her. Lisa is fun to watch but the gap in the level of dancing between her and the others is getting too big now. Louis can be great to watch but is difficult to engage with. Kimberley seems like a genuinely sweet girl so I think she's my favourite. Even though she danced in her part in Shrek and in Girls Aloud she did at least say she thought this gave her an advantage. I would have thought that Lisa, Dani and maybe even Sid Owen have all had dance training as well. It would be interesting to see how much training each has had.

Hello, have been a bit busy the last couple of weeks (I think I might have missed the last thread completely) but I'm back now smile

I'll go off and catch up on one I've missed but first:

-I'd have preferred two separate dances to fusions
-glad Nicky's gone (but his fusion was the hardest I thought, and Dani's probably the easiest)
-Lisa should go next
-DvO looked really upset to be in the dance off, I felt very sorry for her (also, she looked a bit not so well I thought, a bit pale and kept touching her stomach. Cramps perhaps? There's been a sickness and diarrhoea bug going around here, so perhaps she's caught that.)
-The wardrobe department made a really good job of fixing her skirt before the results show.
-I liked Kimberley but don't know if it deserved a 40
-Louis has huge hands

Sorry if you've gone over that all already you probably have I'll go and catch up now grin

Did anyone see that bit on Monday's ITT where they get the thrown-out celeb and dancer to talk straight to the camera after the Sunday show? Nicky said a few vague nice things that could have been said about his buddy Michael Vaughan. "We've had a few giggles. I think I've made a friend for life. Thanks" Didn't say her name at all. Brrr, he's cold.

ScatterGotStuckUpTheChimney Tue 11-Dec-12 00:52:25

Yes, usually they at least seem fond of each other by this point (well, unless they obviously hate each other, but couples like that don't usually get that far). It seemed like he could have met her for the first time this week!

Also, what James said about training, daughter etc. was perhaps not the best, but I honestly thought DVO was going to cry/be sick if she tried to speak, so he was frantically trying to fill time so she could collect herself. I don't think she spoke at all in that section.

AdesteFiderer Tue 11-Dec-12 08:51:19

I'd like Flavia to win. I remember the first time I saw her on SCD, she did an AT and it was, she was, breathtaking.

Googling to find out when that was I came across this. Talk about a spreadsheet grin

That's brilliant! grin

ppeatfruit Tue 11-Dec-12 12:44:26

But on the sofa on TT2 Nicky seemed almost human (I knew Karen was going to cry) She's very emotional, maybe it was hissing that put Nicky off!!

AndiMac Tue 11-Dec-12 12:51:20

Yes, he laughed at the right places during the VT, but still, very little recognition of Karen. She might be a harridan in the studio, but all of Artem's partners always thank him for being a taskmaster, so it can't just be her.

Certainly didn't make me like him much, despite how easy on the eyes and ears he might otherwise be.

ppeatfruit Tue 11-Dec-12 12:59:16

And she thanked HIM very sweetly I thought. He's obviously a bit of a clod.!

digerd Tue 11-Dec-12 19:04:01

DVO doing the Rumba and Tango on Saturday. I expect to be wowed at last by at least her Rumba.

chipstick10 Tue 11-Dec-12 19:09:49

Was standing next to Zoe ball waiting to pay in selfridges today. She's very tall.

Horsemad Tue 11-Dec-12 19:11:03

What was she buying Chip?!

chipstick10 Tue 11-Dec-12 19:36:33

I don't know, we were in the basement where the xmas shop is. I was too busy trying to listen to what she was saying to her mate. Whatever it was she found it or them annoying coz I heard her say "arrrrrhhhh I'm just so grrrrrr" confused

Horsemad Tue 11-Dec-12 19:40:06

grin

AndiMac Tue 11-Dec-12 20:02:17

Anyone watched ITT yet? I'm now definitely on Team Louis. Not so much for his body as his sense of humour. But the bod helps!

Horsemad Tue 11-Dec-12 20:04:07

Missed it - saw the butcher in his glittery shirt grin is it on iPlayer?

AndiMac Tue 11-Dec-12 20:09:36

Not yet. But worth it for the two minutes before the butcher. Who I though was great in his pink glitter shirt!

AndiMac Tue 11-Dec-12 20:10:04

Thought was great

digerd Tue 11-Dec-12 20:25:47

Yes, Andimac, I did. and reported earlier that DVO is dancing the Rumba and Tango on Saturday. Expect her Rumba will be really good. Karen said Lisa made lots of mistakes. She loved Louis, Dani and Kimberly and also that DVo's music for the quickstep was too fast, which is what I said. Karen demoed quite a few steps again, showing how they should be done, or how good they were.
