Yes, he sounded lovely. I'm sure that's why he's survived so long on Strictly Come Dancing, too - everyone can see he's (shall we say) not the most talented dancer, but his determination to learn, and not to take himself too seriously, is very endearing.
We're recent converts to Strictly - my daughter was introduced to it last year by her friend and now treats it as the shopping channel ('I want a dress like that' 'And that one' 'And that one')! It's very entertaining and makes a nice contrast to all the CSI-type programmes that my husband insists on watching later on Saturday night.
He and his wife and sons are all lovely - his wife taught me at school and she is friends with DP's mum .
Am so pleased he is still in Strictly. Apparently he gets offered loads of reality TV type stuff and this was the only one he wanted to do - his wife was not very keen but finally agreed he could do it this year.
