News! Jared is replaced . I'm glad they replaced him as I felt he was too inexperienced and out of his depth to be a good teacher.
Starting to get excited and it's not on for 3 months!
Da da da da da da da, da da da da da...DA DA DA DA!

CeliaFate Wed 15-Jun-11 13:56:16

How the hell did I do that? blush Even I'm not THAT excited!

iklboo Wed 15-Jun-11 13:59:08

Sean Connery?! Would he really? Shaun Williamson, maybe!

The new guy is gorgeous.

He is rather dishy.

But these new ones are all stars themselves, and not teachers <whines> I want Darren back! He and Lilia were my favourites, and he had such a lovely smile and bottom

Jared was only there plainly to bring in younger viewers with the High School Musical connection. Pasha looks hot! But I too would love to see the return of Darren and Lilia. I did wonder if Lilia was pregnant or if they were TTC last year...

IWantToBeAFairyWhenIGrowUp Thu 16-Jun-11 19:04:35

wasn't Lilia a judge on the Turkish version of SCD last year (or something).

But no Claudia W on ITT, she's my fave!

MediumPretty Thu 16-Jun-11 23:17:47

Oh no, Brucie will be back too.

CeliaFate Fri 17-Jun-11 21:06:36

I hope they don't get someone boring to replace Claudia on ITT. They should ask a die-hard fan like Miranda Hart, Marian Keyes or <gasp> Arlene!

VeryHungryKatypillar Fri 17-Jun-11 22:13:56

Ooh, good idea, Miranda gets my vote.

CaveMum Sat 18-Jun-11 18:24:42

Ooo are we starting a new thread now?! Count me in!

I'm hoping for some, at least, B-list celebs this year rather than the F-listers they've used for the last few years.
Dancer wise there are lots of good dancers out there that they could use. My dance teacher always said that she was surprised that Darren and Lilia took part as they had the potential to be World Champions.

I'm hoping they don't go too much down the Dancing With The Stars route which is a bit too gimmicky for my liking! I'm a bit of a dance snob purist wink

Just marking my place for September. grin

read today in fail that danii m is considering dancing

don't think m keyes is well enough at the mo to consider claudia's role

Yes, I wasn't keen on all the themes and props last year. The themes were ok I suppose, in terms of music, but some of the 'extras' got in the way of the dancing. And I'm not even going to mention the lifts.

Is Claudia not doing it because she'll have just had a baby or is there another reason?

LadyClariceCannockMonty Sun 19-Jun-11 16:32:31

I found last year's so gimmicky and brash. They seemed to really take 'inspiration' from the American version, and lost a lot of its British light-entertainment charm along the way.

I'll still be watching though. smile

Why no Claudia??!!?? ITT won't be the same. I adore her and she's perfect for it.

CeliaFate Sun 19-Jun-11 16:58:37

Claudia's baby is due in August and she couldn't bear to leave her little one every day for ITT. She's still going to do the results show.

CaveMum Mon 20-Jun-11 13:24:48

Didn't Justin Lee Collins do the ITT equivalent for the 1st series of SCD, or did I imagine it?!

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 20-Jun-11 14:21:52

Didn't watch the first series, so I don't know. Would rather gouge out own eyeballs than watch his mug on ITT five days a week.

ScatterChasse Mon 20-Jun-11 14:52:35

Yes he did. See here.

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 20-Jun-11 16:02:57

<crying with disappointment>

EthelredOnAGoodDay Tue 21-Jun-11 22:35:40

Just marking my place. ITT will not be the same without Claudia. They need a celeb super fan to take her place.
Agree it was too gimmicky last year. I wrote a letter of complaint to the Beeb, but got the impression they thought what i was saying was a load of crap! grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Wed 22-Jun-11 13:13:52

I wrote to the Beeb too! They sent me basically a form letter back: 'Thank you for your feedback but here's a list of justifications for why we did it this way so fuck off', to paraphrase.

I'd like Craig to present ITT, as part of a panel also featuring Pauline Quirke, Marian Keyes if she's better, and a different member of the public every day.
