I LOVE it! grin

Waits for first person to fall on arse!

Eyes up Shane ward

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 18:26:26

Just me then. hmm

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 18:33:18

Karen is back on the judging panel hoorah! grin

does anyone know if they are marking out of 6 or 10?

<pretends there are other peeps watching>

We're watching....... well me and dd1 anyway (she loves it). DH and the boys are in another room playing with the Hornby, 'helped' by the little onesgrin.

We are looking forward to watching Beth and seeing if being a gymnast will make her fantastic at all the fancy bits...... or maybe the ice will prove too much!!

Raahh Sun 06-Jan-13 18:39:17

I usually watch this- but last year was rubbish, Louis Spence really annoyed me and there was something missing. Am going to catch up later.

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 18:44:00

Yay! smile

Wasn't very keen on Spence either, I am glad he is gone he really didn't even try to judge the skating.

MirandaWest Sun 06-Jan-13 18:44:52

DC and I are watching it. DS says he doesn't like Louis grin

Hooray!! I have been waiting for this to come back - it is one of my favourite programmes - as a teenager, I used to imagine Robin Cousins coming and whisking me off for a stellar ice skating career, because of course his tuition and help was all that was needed to transform tubby, uncoordinated, unsporty me I to a figure skating goddess there's part of me that still believes this is true even though I am 48 and very overweight!

Hats of to Keith, hes got some guts to come back after breaking his shoulder and ribs.

I cant stand Louis either.....thinks far to much of himself and his comments can be way to harsh.

LottieJenkins Sun 06-Jan-13 18:57:17

Im watching! Gubba had better watch his mouth this year!!!!

Charliefox Sun 06-Jan-13 18:58:19

Tried it, lasted 15 minutes, turned it off. And what in the name of all that is holy was Christine Beaky wearing?!

Sylvan <leers, rubs thighs>

Ooh, Keith was quite good wasn't he? I was surprised. Beth is vair bendy, but not very graceful.

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 19:02:19

[Cringe] Cheggers blush

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 19:03:07

Who is 'Gubba'?

spokeswoman Sun 06-Jan-13 19:05:56

Love it too

MrsNPattz Sun 06-Jan-13 19:06:46

I'm watching! They have fairly mixed up the judging panel again!

Raahh Sun 06-Jan-13 19:09:47

I'm trying to catch bits of this- didn't see Beth skate, but she didn't look happy afterwards.

DOI just brings back memories of Torvill and Dean in the 80's. Seems like yesterday. <sigh>

<gets comfy and waves hello>

im watching. was expecting cheggers to be rubbish but he's actually quite good.

love matt evers (sp?)... his reaction to pammy is funny

Raahh Sun 06-Jan-13 19:10:57

oh- Lottie- I remember the Gubba faux pas last year- did he ever apologise?

Raahh Sun 06-Jan-13 19:11:31

Karen looks strained next to ott Ashlee. looks like she wants to slap her.

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 19:11:39

How old is this boy? he really is like a toddler bless! smile

ReeBee Sun 06-Jan-13 19:15:51

I'm watching on catch up. V excited, even DH likes it. Just need DS to appreciate it too.

im glad jason's back... cant stand the spence. i think ashley is a good choice too

MrsTomHardy Sun 06-Jan-13 19:20:12

Love love love it
Shane to win....he is FIT grin

mynameis Sun 06-Jan-13 19:23:17

Have to record and fast forward through all the guff.

Think Ashley is trying to be the controversial judge with her marking down
'Want you to be a chicka, you know what I'm sayin?'
Er no not really Ashley grin

DH wants me to give him a shout when pammy is on cause he wants to watch her.
(me) ''Im not calling you in, just so you can oggle her brests''
(DH) ''hmm Im not intersested in seeing her boobs. I want to see what she does to counter balance them........and see her eat ice''
grinDH can be so charming at times!

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 19:28:06

DH is missing Holly and Kat-watsit, but he says Pam will have to do hmm

so is mine hugoagogo says kat-whatsit always wore low cut tops and that was the only reason he watched. though funily enough he's watching it now... maybe he's liking ashley hmm

i miss holly too sad

MrsTomHardy Sun 06-Jan-13 19:36:26

Think he boobs might pop out blush

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 06-Jan-13 19:40:02

Has Bleakley had her tits done?

grin boots

I'm looking forward to Luke Campbell next week <swoon>

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 19:43:02

I'm not sure about Ashley, what are her icy credentials? hmm I'm glad Jason is back because you need a villain don't you?

I'm annoyed that there is such a huge variation in the scoring though. Was one of the earlier skaters marked from 3.5 to 6.5? What the Jeff was that about?

Can we bag our skaters to perv over btw? I'll have Matt grin

mynameis Sun 06-Jan-13 19:46:31

Mmmm Hairy I was just thinking how sexy Matt is.

Gone off Sylvan for being such a cad wink

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 19:47:04

What does Ashley know about it?
I didn't even recognise her at first-looking all clean. wink

she doesnt have "icy credentials" (love that) but she's a dancer

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 20:06:36

A cad and a bounder! still would mind you

I may subcontract Matt out on an hourly basis <gracious>

JustFabulous Sun 06-Jan-13 20:10:17

What she said about her marking for Shane made no sense at all.

Just found this thread.
I'm not sure i like the new format, giving scores before speaking to Jayne and Chris etc. I suppose I'll have to keep watching to see. Prefer the new judge panel though. Does someone leave tonight? I missed first 15 mins

theliverpoolone Sun 06-Jan-13 20:17:06

I think the variation in marks is ok, as different judges are marking different things - Robin and that woman I can't stand are marking the skating, while Ashley and Jason are marking the dancing and musical interpretation. Think Robin and the other one have overmarked, considering it's only the first week - giving 7's now doesn't leave much room for marking higher as they get better over weeks to come.

That woman who used to just be a coach - Karen, just remembered her name! - really gets on my nerves - coaching and judging doesn't seem right to me, and her sour face with Jason ....I know they had a spat a while ago, but honestly, imagine if we all carried on like that with people we disagreed with at work. Anyway, off now to see who's knocked out!

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 20:32:29

I know, she has got a touch of the catsbum mouth when she refers to Jason hasn't she?

Whose for the chop tonight I wonder.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 20:41:25

Tonight's episode seems better than it did last year, I pretty much gave up on it.

Karen Barber has a right catsbum face doesn't she? She spent most of her time sitting there with an expression akin to someone with a bag of dog poop under their nose. she is only on the show cos she's shagging Christopher Dean anyway

Bleakly is duller than the dullest dishwater.

JustFabulous Sun 06-Jan-13 20:42:26

Ashley said just because she only gave a 5 didn't mean she didn't think it was good. Good to me is 6.5 and above.

I dont blame Karen, Jason was vile to her last year but it is very uncomfortable when it is constantly mentioned. Let them move on ffs.

JustFabulous Sun 06-Jan-13 20:43:48

Karen was a judge before she was "just a coach."

JustFabulous Sun 06-Jan-13 20:44:56

She was also on the show before she started seeing CD. FFS women are so bitchy at times.

Is Pamela going to skate in that dressshock.... may need to go get the eye bleach out as shes going to pop out of that for sure!

mynameis Sun 06-Jan-13 20:50:39

Well I guess I could put my principals aside Hairy for Sylvain wink

Bye Keith can't see Matt out on the first week, sorry I mean Pammie grin

anastasia74 Sun 06-Jan-13 20:51:48

Yes, soo glad to see Jason back he does really tell it as it is. I saw him in Space nightclub in ibiza with a few friends and asked him for a photo. I grabbed him as he came past after spotting him. I said after having had a few drinks. "Jason I know you don't know me, but I watch you all the time on dancing on ice and feel like I know you, so could I please have a photo." and in the style only Jason could do. " I'm sorry dear but if I do that, everyone would realise who I am and want one. sorry". I was a bit dissappointed but thought it was so typical of him lol. Thought it was funny watching him dance to the DJ's and was giving him marks out of 10 in my head.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 20:52:00

Yes she was a judge who got taken off the panel but still got a lot of airtime despite having very little personality or charisma. I wonder why. In my opinion she doesn't add anything to the panel, and shouldn't have been brought back.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 20:53:04

Tricky skate off for the judges to call...

i quite like karen

and yes... they seriously need to give it a rest with the "spat" comments

if pammy doesnt get sent home for that then ill be angry

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 20:54:31

But she's the Big Hollywood Name

aww poor matt sad

Wow pammy gone home!

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 20:55:36


Bet the producers are unhappy!

i bet she got paid the most too. i bet the producers are kicking themselves

YAY Keith! He was better than Pammy...... shame realy as Matt is a bit of alrightgrin

Meh. She was the weakest skater. And there was very nearly bosom spillage. I get the impression that's all she was there for. Pam is boobs first, a person second. Even Schofe made a crack about her boobs <shudders>. Very creepy.

whoneedstosleep Sun 06-Jan-13 20:57:49

It proves its not fixed like X factor though.

WipsGlitter Sun 06-Jan-13 20:58:02

The producers will be furious. She's the "big" name.

theliverpoolone Sun 06-Jan-13 20:58:46

Hurray, they made the right decision! Just cos she's a hollywood star doesnt mean she should stay when she was clearly the worst. The producers will be gutted grin

LottieJenkins Sun 06-Jan-13 21:01:00

Raah No Gubba didnt!!! hmm angry

Well dd(age 12) just said ''im glad shes gone, im not sure i could sit and watch all the boob adjusting, silly giggle and eye fluttering every week..... and whats with all the hair flicking like a teenager?''

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 21:03:28

Matt's gone?? angry I'm gutted.

Karen does need to get on with it I'm afraid. Jason was rude but it was 2 years ago. If you agree to return to the panel, then imho, you slap on your game face and do your job like an adult and not a sulky toddler.

Fwiw, I do like her and respect her as a coach, I'm not entirely sure as a coach that she should be a judge as well. Conflict of interest and all that.

The group hug was cringeworthy

is she a coach this year? i only saw another guy skating with them, i didnt see her at all i was paying attention, honest grin

GW297 Sun 06-Jan-13 21:09:55

Wips - I agree! They've lost their 'star' in the first week.

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 21:10:43

Ahh, I wasn't actually paying attention. There is every chance she isn't coaching this year and in fact I am an arse blush

My comment re getting over it still stands though. grin

hairy it wasnt 'celeb' Matt thats went. It was Pammy that went and her partner was called Matt(I think).

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 06-Jan-13 21:12:11

No, she was definitely in the coaching segments. I watch them fairly closely to look for the guy who did my skating lessons a couple of years ago smile

mynameis Sun 06-Jan-13 21:15:17

Gutted Matt went that's one bit of eye candy down sad

Celeb wise I grudgingly admit they picked the right one to stay


see i was paying attention grin

theliverpoolone Sun 06-Jan-13 21:17:50

She is coaching still , she was on the ice with them in the training sessions. She's just going to continually overmark, give no critique at all, and do that catsbum face until Jason snaps then she'll be all traumatised and the injured party. Just takes all the attention away from the contestants - bit like the X Factor!

HairyPotter Sun 06-Jan-13 21:23:59

Is there a celeb Matt? I really should having being paying more attention. It was prof Matt I meant as he is utterly delicious.

Inlove, I think we can agree neither of us has a clue to what's going on grin

Liv, couldn't agree more.

thats alright hairy... we'll just make up our own show grin

yes there is a celeb matt too... an olympian i know stuff really

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 21:54:42

Shocker that Pammy went shock

I would have felt a bit bad for Keith to go straightaway after waiting a year. I am either getting very soft or am drunk. confused

ill go with drunk soft grin

hugoagogo Sun 06-Jan-13 22:12:59

dh and I went to the pub!!! without a baby sitter (a first for us!) So you maybe right grin

theliverpoolone Mon 07-Jan-13 08:52:19

Just read that Pamela was voted out in the first week of Dancing with the Stars USA too - so dancing definitely isnt her thing! Which disproves whoever said (might have been her partner Matt?) that she was in the bottom 2 cos its a British audience voting for British celebs......

whatphididnext Mon 07-Jan-13 16:38:28

I don't believe Matt was in awe of having her as his partner as he pretended on the clips. he was probably cursing his luck getting lumbered with her.
What ice-dancer in their right minds wears underwear to skate in. They usually have skin-coloured net holding the whole thing in place!

chipstick10 Mon 07-Jan-13 18:29:32

I can't watch doi now Jason is back. He is vile, and goes for the shock factor all the time. He is no strictly Craig that's for sure. No warmth, no charisma no talent. Just a nasty bitchy queen. Karen is right to have a face like a cats bum having to sit next to him, he's still saying nasty things about her in the press. Itv must be desperate to have him back. I cannot tolerate the ego that is schof either. I tuned in to see who was in the scare off and I love Christine's hair.

mrsjay Mon 07-Jan-13 19:06:50

jason is vile Karen simpers they are so annoying the pair of them ashley was trying to be bitchy <rolls eyes> and the lovely Matt is first out not a good start to a new series, never mind I have my lovely Daniel to perv over and he has a gymnast as a partner so will be in it for ages <sigh>

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 00:27:49

Dh had some interesting news today. He's looking forward to going into work tomorrow.

Wingedharpy Wed 09-Jan-13 01:43:58

Do we know your husband Picture?
I'm guessing he's not one of the judges.

mrsjay Wed 09-Jan-13 08:42:46

Dh had some interesting news today. He's looking forward to going into work tomorrow.

are you Mrs Schofield grin you obviously have goss do share

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 10:03:58

He works at a dance school

whatphididnext Wed 09-Jan-13 12:47:07

Is your husband the delectable Matt????

mrsjay Wed 09-Jan-13 12:49:37

He works at a dance school

are they having some contestants for dance training say it is the lovely Daniel and his gymnast partner ( AND GO AND TAKE PICTURES )

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 13:03:37

He's not allowed to say at the moment. And he won't be involved himself.

whatphididnext Wed 09-Jan-13 13:15:44

ooh you tease Pictures

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 13:20:29

Well he's so dense bless him. He just said oh we've got x visiting tomorrow. He didn't click that it would prob be for training. No mention of the pro partner.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 18:32:23

Looks like one of the students put some pics on twitter.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 18:32:52

And mrsjay was right

mrsjay Wed 09-Jan-13 19:20:32

And mrsjay was right

grin I love dan he is adorable

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 09-Jan-13 21:10:15

Dh didn't get to meet her sad

ALittleScatterOfRain Wed 09-Jan-13 21:25:13

I mostly remember Karen for ending up with mascara streaked all over her face when John Barrowman went out...

I didn't manage to get into it last year, so will try harder this time!

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 18:26:07

Why is this girl skating in her vest and knickers?

i wish they would give the whole karen/jason thing a rest! i really hope its not going to be mentioned every blooming week.

look how tight gareths trousers are shock

I was just coming to bump this thred for tonights showinggrin. Some of the outfits are a little hmm at times but I was shock at Pammys last wk 'rouge boob/nipple alert'!

Ooooh looks like we could be in for another boob popper outer tonight!

MrsTomHardy Sun 13-Jan-13 18:33:16

I'm here

Waiting for Lauren to skate, but got a feeling she may be a bit crap sad

MrsTomHardy Sun 13-Jan-13 18:34:24

Just wish they wouldn't put an ad break after every skater!!! angry

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 18:44:36

The ads are frustrating, I think I will pause it and go and iron my work stuff; then I will be able to skip the breaks.

It's a wild and crazy night at the Agogo's. grin

yes all the add breaks are annoying

looking forward to seeing joe p grin

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 18:48:59

So glad Karen is back on the judging panel. Shame Pam tripped and went home, I liked her performance.
The last one looked clumbsy and awkward.

oh my shock


not liking the comedy factor. why cant they just get him to skate

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 18:54:54

Joe P
What can I say? Good effort.

mynameis Sun 13-Jan-13 18:59:36

Where's Frankie this year?

Think Lauren's partner Michael is my replacement eye candy after losing Matt last week

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 18:59:42

Poor Joe, that suit made him look such a weird shape.

Why is she doing this if she is too busy for training?
She did well mind for not yet nailing it in practice.

mynameis Sun 13-Jan-13 19:11:03

Had no idea who Oona was but thought she was really promising

Did they just say he is married with baby? He looks really young

mynameis Sun 13-Jan-13 19:27:43

Surely it's far away from what ALL the celebs do?

I think there are some strong contestants this year.

porridgewithalmondmilk Sun 13-Jan-13 19:44:01

Does anyone know where Samia is this week? Have I missed something?

I thought the Baroness' dance was beautiful and they were very harsh!

LadyBeagleEyes Sun 13-Jan-13 19:46:46

I really dislike Jason Gardner, he tries so hard to be the nasty one a la Simon Cowell but has none of his charm.
He just comes across as the archetypical (sp) bitchy gay guy, I don't believe he forgot Anthea's name.
I'm not a fan of hers but she's a damn sight more recognisable than him.

NewYearNewBoo Sun 13-Jan-13 19:47:18

Samia was on last week so will be back next week. What has Anthea done to her face, looks like someone has removed her top lip, she looks a bit ............. odd hmm

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 19:48:36

Never did think the male celebs should be judged against the female as so much harder for them to do the lifting, than the females being lifted by the profi males.
Loved John Barrowman's dancing on ice, but he dropped his partner and lost his nerve, bless him.
Daniel is such a caring partner.

porridgewithalmondmilk Sun 13-Jan-13 19:50:40

Oh I see NewYear I didn't realise it was a sort of rotation smile Thanks!

Digerd I think that too- but then so much scarier for the women!!

Porridge the producers weren't happy to have such a short time slot as not enough time for all of them to dance each week at this stage. If they had less adverts, a break after every 2 dances instead of 1 possibly, we might see more skating!

NewYearNewBoo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:14:06

Oh the adverts after each skate is bloody awful!

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:14:31

I think of the poor profi girls being lifted by the celebs - they must be so brave.
The girls feel safe in the hands of the profi men , only one was dropped and that was by so caring Daniel, but forgotten who the celeb was?
Didn't realise it was just half of them this week?

PenelopePisstop Sun 13-Jan-13 20:17:31

I can't stand Anthea. That underbite annoys me, they way she speaks annoys me, that simpering look she has annoys me. Does anyone actually like her? I've never heard anyone say they do. (I am having a bad day so this might be a tad OTT smile)

NewYearNewBoo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:25:52

No your right, Anthea is an awful woman!!

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:25:58

I was surprised she looked a bit haggard?

LottieJenkins Sun 13-Jan-13 20:26:18

I thought Lauren was rubbish. Joe was very funny. I am delighted that Frankie is not in it........She thought she was so bloody marvellous and stopped using her surname after she broke up David Seaman's marriage!hmm

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:29:05

The Skate Off!

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:32:18

Jason has had a hair transplant - looks so much younger.

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:37:31

Frankie was so far up her own bum, it's a wonder she could see out.

No one is really standing out for me, I thought the boxer had a nice little wiggle once or twice and Oona is quite graceful.

mynameis Sun 13-Jan-13 20:38:30

Surely Jason should know the celebs names!

it was half this week and half last week because there are too many celebs to skate in one show. they've done this for the past couple of years.

yes cant stand anthea either. have never liked her. she comes across as being all smug and perfect and miss know it all

id forgotten about frankie. did she really break up davids marriage? shock

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:45:38

Ah, Luke looks so young and sweet/innocent - glad his still in.

NewYearNewBoo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:45:56

I love your name DavidTennant, cos I love David too and you are the reason I couldn't have that name sad why is Anthea's annoying husband getting on camera???

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:46:11

opps " he's".

whispers i hope anthea trips

oops sorry newyear! i couldnt think of a better one and at the time i was and still am blooming obssessed with the man grin

LottieJenkins Sun 13-Jan-13 20:49:08

I'm not sure who I like the least anthea or Lauren!
Think anthea will be saved though.
What's this about frankie and David seaman?

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:51:15

Lauren is in the poo

did she actually skate? hmm

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 20:51:52

Her hair is a Fright!

Surprised Frankie isn't in this year, she loves the attention IMO

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 20:52:20

Missed Anthea's dance before - I found her performance charming - had ballet training.

Frankie is 38 I wonder if she has retired? I had a google to see about her and David and surprise surprise the first few are DM links!

shock he left his wife and kids cause he was bored! wow what an arse a charmer!

oh i saw that newyear. yes very cruel... literally felt my heart break a little sad . cant comment on the wife but she seems nice enough though

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 21:01:18

Oona < who is she?> danced and performed well - like her.

NewYearNewBoo Sun 13-Jan-13 21:01:27

sadsad yes she does seem very lovely sadsadsad jealous??? Moi??? grin

Same time next week ladies??

digerd Sun 13-Jan-13 21:05:41

David Seaman - not my type, and he looks like Frankie's dad. What's she doing with him. He looks smarmy and conceited.

deffo same time next week. see you all then grin

hugoagogo Sun 13-Jan-13 21:09:07

seeyas grin

theliverpoolone Mon 14-Jan-13 12:15:17

Today's Daily Mirror - Pamela Anderson and Matt are dating shock grin. Wonder how long that will last??

digerd Mon 14-Jan-13 18:38:18

What's the age difference?

mynameis Mon 14-Jan-13 20:16:17

WHAT! Lucky Pammie envy


theliverpoolone Mon 14-Jan-13 22:05:22

She's 45, he's 36. She dumped someone called Jesus for him grin.

digerd Tue 15-Jan-13 12:01:33

Oh, I thought she was older. She looked really good and her dance movements and flexibility were good.
But then so was I at 45. I was teaching and demonstrating ballet , jazz and disco dance.
But I could never skate.

theliverpoolone Tue 15-Jan-13 13:17:23

If they're reporting that she's 45, she's probably older....grin

digerd Wed 16-Jan-13 18:27:11

When was Bay Watch on TV?

LottieJenkins Wed 16-Jan-13 21:58:07

It was def on in Nov 1994. My niece was born then. I will never forget getting home to mine after hospital visiting with my dniece and nephew and my Dad and putting the tv on. Baywatch came on and my Dads eyes were on stalks and his jaw nearly hit the ground when he saw Pammy bouncing literally across the tv screen! grin

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 18:21:29

Well that was cringey!

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:27:31

What was??? I hate the way they make such a drama when they hurt themselves, all hospital signs and will they wont they and then there is nothing wrong with them........hmm

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:33:20

Who else is watching then?

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 18:37:49

I meant the silly bit when they were trying to face off at the beginning, especially torville and dean.

I'm here dd has gone off to read her book as she's 'not bothered' shock

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 18:39:44

That was really enjoyable. Nice to see male against male so you can compare more easily. Being very tall has disadvantages , he did really well
Matt lost his balance at the end of his first dance, did the judges not see it?

im here <waves>

hope gareth doesnt go

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:40:09

It appears we are the only two! Beth Tweddles nose annoys me!!!

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 20-Jan-13 18:41:34

I am here, am at the in-laws and they don't have Sky Plus so am being forced to watch the adverts AND all the talking bits shock

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:45:34

I cant stand Samia.......she seems to trample on men and then move on!!

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:49:18

Why are all the men nodding their heads like the Churchill dog??? its very annoying!!

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 18:49:59

Who is she? I haven't heard of many of them tbh

mynameis Sun 20-Jan-13 18:50:06

I'm here too. Ah Brianne makes me a bit stabby but I agree they skated the best.

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:50:52

Dont think Samia will thank mouthallmighty Gubba for mentioning about Sylvain's family..............Her latest line was that they werent dating!! hmm

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 18:51:00

grin stupid chin bob thing-it looks sooo stupid.

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 18:51:46

Samia is in Coronation Street!

fudgelover Sun 20-Jan-13 18:52:37

If the costumes get any skimpier I think they will be dancing in the nude by the finals. Might be a good thing for some of them and make for some interesting moves!

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 18:53:32

Oh. boy and against girl this time. Luke looks quite young and cute, but lacking that masculine beefyness and strength, and is shoulders are hunched. Hard to compare what the man has to do with the girl and her profi partner.
Enjoyed the girl's performance better.
I agree with Jason and the posture of Luke and his lack lustre bodily expression.

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 18:53:34

Ah, I haven't seen coronation street since being forced to watch it at my nans in the 80s.

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 19:00:40

I think Corrie was the first soap - oh no Crossroads was in black and white, in my vague memory.

mynameis Sun 20-Jan-13 19:01:10

Oh no Chris that's not the best look grin

i think the girl vs guy is unfair too.

professional skaters are quicker over the ice and the girls dont have to worry about that... they just get lifted and smile.

the boys have to work so much harder and have the responsibility of lifting someone... which they are not used to

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 19:02:40

Oh dear Beth has got a tummy ache!! hmm

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 19:07:42

Good 2 ladies now.
Beth looks like a profi. OOna looked hesitant with hunched shoulders and anxiety. Agreed with jason again.

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 19:09:15

If i was Oona i would not be impressed with the stylist.........her hair looks like she has stuck her finger in a socket!!!

didnt like either of the girls performance tbh. a bit bland

anthea just always comes across as so so smug

I think its realy unfair with the MvsF groupings. The guys have it so much harder. Not only do they have to look graceful and happy but they have to keep their balance whilst lifting their profi partner(who must have nerves of steal!). The ladies just have to look happy and do a few flicky things whist their profi partner carries/drags them around..... not that I could even do that much(i cant go 30seconds without eating icegrin).

I thought Beth looked a little rough TBH, her eyes looked quite heavy. I think nerves got the better of Oona tonight.

I cant stand Samia or Anthea.

i think anthea focuses more on looking good and not much else

shane imo was better. at least he actually skates

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 19:24:08

Shane against Anthea? Come on Shane! Must say Anthea is graceful <and has definitely had dance training >
- very nice performance and leg lines. Jason has just said the same thing. Anthea is through, I thought so.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 20-Jan-13 19:24:40

Anthea just gets pushed and pulled around the ice. She can't do any unaided skating.

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 19:25:17

Oh fed up with adverts inbetween each of the dances.

Oooh Keith and Joe next. Should be fun[gin]

awww this is my fave so far!.... at least they look like they are having fun and enjoying themselvesgrin.

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 19:34:36

OMG I think Keith was marginally better, much as I hate to admit it.

Both awful though.

love those 2. wish they could both win grin

Barry the bunion to win!!grin

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 20:33:33

I hope Joe goes through!!!

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 20:46:43


yay joe's through

come on gareth grin

omg shock

omg shock

oops sorry blush

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 20:52:33

OMG>..............I wouldnt want to skate after that!! shock

me either

wow! well done to him

hugoagogo Sun 20-Jan-13 20:59:30

I was too busy reading mumsnet and missed it, I can't rewind up here.

I wonder if it'll be on the website? <heartless>

im sure it will be at some point

or on youtube

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 21:24:04

I missed it. What was that awful thing that happened?

one of the pros dislocated his shoulder before skating for the skate off, someone popped it back in and then he skated

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 21:34:22

As Mark Hanratty skated out with Oona King he slipped and put his shoulder out. OK thought he had collapsed and got in a bit of a panic. They put MH's shoulder back in and he still skated!

WOW! Ive only just caught up with this on +1 (was watching call the midwife).

Mark was so brave to go back out and skate after thatshock. I have dislocated my shoulder before (3xs actualy) and can say it is BLOODY painful! He will be in a LOT of pain tomorow (so prob a good thing Oona out and he can rest, poor guysad).

digerd Wed 23-Jan-13 18:39:21

Thank LOTTIE. Poor him. No wonder OOna looked very hesitant, she was worried about him. Though she seemed a really nice person.

digerd Wed 23-Jan-13 18:39:44

oops "thought"

fizzybeerandsausages Sun 27-Jan-13 18:41:34

Does anyone think that Luke could be really good if he just had a drink before going on? He seems so lovely but very stiff and awkward on the ice.

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 18:52:06

Thought Shane did well. More personality in his performance.
Luke - he was out of synch with the music, with his partner and looked awkward/gawky. Has a cute face though.
Missed Anthea's.

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 18:53:58

Don't know how he got those high marks for his skating as surely if it was that good it would look good , easy and flowing. Which it wasn't?

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 18:58:39

Well, now that looked flowing, easy and enjoyable to watch, even at his age and with a paunch, -well done.

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:05:20

The rugby player
Fast strong but found it boring.

LottieJenkins Sun 27-Jan-13 19:15:37

Ive been watching but distracted by Wilf on Skype and a friend whos about to have a baby whos dog has just returned after going walkabout!
I misheard at the beginning and thought they said Anthea was the school s..t instead of the school swot! grin
I LOVED Keith's performance!!! smile
I CANT abide Anthea!

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:17:27

Matt is a really nice young only 23 year-old man. Very good skating and performance. That baggy t-shirt didn't do him any favours, though

LottieJenkins Sun 27-Jan-13 19:17:27

Forgot to say i was very hmm at Luke doing the Churchill dog nod again this week!!!

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:19:56

Yeh, Keith really surprised and delighted me.

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:26:45

I love Daniel he is sooo nice to his partners, and his dancing is so natural.
I also noticed that the female profs are a healthy looking shape, not ultra skinny.
I thought Beth did well - it could have been more showy, but she's on ice.

LottieJenkins Sun 27-Jan-13 19:27:45

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! FIGHT!!!!!! Love it!!!! SHUT UP JASON!!!
Love this 10cc track! My sisters are eight and six years older than me and i grew up listening to 10cc!!

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:29:55

Much preferred Kieth's to Joes's

digerd Sun 27-Jan-13 19:45:24

missed Samia's. Didn't realise how pretty she is and don't think she's had a boob job - good for her.

awaynboilyurheid Sun 27-Jan-13 20:26:53

another poster said this but what has anthea done to her face? she looks .....different still hugely annoying and smug but different

LottieJenkins Sun 27-Jan-13 20:49:05

Keith should NOT be in the skateoff! sad
Miss Tippytoes to go!!

Idontliketoffee Sun 27-Jan-13 20:50:08

Anthea looks like a little chipmunk. Has she had cheek implants or Sumat, she looks weird?

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 27-Jan-13 20:59:25

Anthea has a mullet. Possibly related to that, there is something about her that makes her very difficult to warm to.

I think the judges were being very harsh with Beth. Next week she will do an easier routine so she can concentrate on performance and she will get slated because the routine is too easy.

Idontliketoffee Sun 27-Jan-13 21:01:10

A mullet? Do you mean her hair style? I think her hair is lovely. I have never been able to warm to her.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 27-Jan-13 21:13:21

Yes, her hair. Do you really think its lovely? Sorry if I've inadverently insulted you. But it really does seem quite mullet-y to me. Different strokes for different folks and all that. I am glad we can agree on her strange un-warm-able-ness.

Idontliketoffee Sun 27-Jan-13 21:15:35

Oh defo agree on that, she has a dreadful self consciousness as well, it makes me cringe. Think eamon Holmes was right when he called her princess tippy toes.

digerd Mon 28-Jan-13 08:06:21

I was busy during the dance off and missed it - only saw the decision and noticed they were wearing different outfits.
Kieth should not have been in the dance off. His LUNGE was brilliant - deep with outstretched leg behind and straight back, and effortless recovery - wow that man has strong thighs.

digerd Mon 28-Jan-13 08:09:22

I just thought Anthea's face looked a bit "aged". Good body and legs though.

awaynboilyurheid Mon 28-Jan-13 09:12:31

I thought she looked un aged but in a wierd puffy way ? fillers, got all the time in the world to look after herself but agree she has good figure still annoying tho

digerd Mon 28-Jan-13 10:22:40

In my newspaper this morning it says Anthea is 52 - so no wonder her face is no longer in its bloom of youth. But she still looks good for her age

Been watching every week grin

I'm learning to figure skate and I tell you what, if I was half as good as some of these celebs I'd be happy.

Although they do have a pro to hold on to... as my coach has said, "You could do all sorts if I was holding you up and pulling you round the rink." She does have a point, but it's still good to watch grin

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 18:42:23

Kieth's was disappointing in his performance of the dance, but spanish style must be difficult on the ice. But then I did see Antonio dance in 19?? in front of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother at Drury Lane Theatre.

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 18:47:31

Shane doing well, must watch his shoulder posture as rounds them., when partnering, but not on his own.

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 18:55:33

Oh wow. Jane and Chris fantastic, especially both being in their 50s.

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 19:02:15

Well, that was wonderfully danced in character and skill/strength. Dramatic performance, Jason gave 6.5 for his performance. Matt. And he is so nice and polite.

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 19:03:56

So, I'm giving a solo commentary again. Where is everyone?

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 19:30:12

What an improvement in Beth's emotional presentation and expression. Even Jason gave her 8.5. She was so graceful too. Top marks so far and well deserved.

digerd Sun 03-Feb-13 20:57:28

Well, the results and I'm furious.
In the botttom 2 Shane and Matt, who were in the top 4 . And Matt stumbled, and was devastated as he did brilliantly. It's a travesty.
Oh my. They saved MATT, so Shane who also did really well is going home .
It should have been Joe and Samma - who did not do well. Joe was terrible.
Don't think I'll watch it again

deleted203 Mon 04-Feb-13 17:34:00

I was shouting at the TV too, digerd. I feel so sorry for Shane, who was great tonight. Agree that Joe and Samia should have been in the skate off. It's really unfair for a good skater to get put out when the public keep voting poor ones through. I can't see the appeal of Joe, TBH. He isn't even particularly funny! Yes, he's a trier - but other people are so much better it isn't fair for them to go out while he stumbles on every week. Oh well...

digerd Wed 06-Feb-13 18:45:27

There was nobody but me commentating as they were on a different/new Thread, which I've just found. Yep, Joe should have gone, not lovely Shane.

deleted203 Wed 06-Feb-13 22:00:30

Just you and me on this one then! grin
