Oh God - Russell Grant - you've got to be kidding shock

Holly Valance was in neighbours wasn't she?, then had that song 'Kiss' - she's probably a good dancer.

PonceyMcPonce Wed 17-Aug-11 22:59:30

Is Jason Donovan the guy in priscilla? On which case not really an amateur. Or he could be someone completely different!

PattySimcox Wed 17-Aug-11 23:02:14

Exciting! Can't wait. Russel Grant is going to be this years Widdie then

GlaikitFizzog Wed 17-Aug-11 23:07:28

Poncey, you don't knwo who the "god that is" Jason Donovan?? shock TBH he's not much of a dancer and musical theatre is totally different to ballroom!

I think I already knew about Alex Jones. Was she announced at the endof last year???

NoseyNooNoo Wed 17-Aug-11 23:19:04

I think PonceyMcPonce must be younger than us - well younger than me anyway.

HauntedLittleLunatic Wed 17-Aug-11 23:23:22

Wasn't it Holly Valence that had throat cancer or something similar so had to (temprarily?) give up her singing career or am I thinking of someone else?

PonceyMcPonce Thu 18-Aug-11 08:01:00

Poncey is very elderly. She remembers him from neighbours then. Was trying to find more recent reference!

fartmeistergeneral Thu 18-Aug-11 08:21:02

I can't believe Alex Jones is doing it. What with her working alongside Matt who was of course runner up last year. I would never have the confidence anyway, but certainly not if I had my work colleague's beady eye on each performance!

RedBlanket Thu 18-Aug-11 08:41:34

Ooh Jason Donovan, I've had a secret crush on him for years.
Alex Jones was an obvious choice, there's always a few BBC regulars on it, they probably get them cheap.
Trying to think who the ex eastenders person will be

What about the pros?

KurriKurri Thu 18-Aug-11 10:08:20

Haunted, I think you might be thinking of Delta Goodrem (also of neighbours fame) - she had to put things on hold for a while because she had cancer. As far as I know Holly is healthy, (not sure the same can be said about her career, - hence the Strictly gig I imagine).

Oh dear, I seem to know far to much about ex- neighbours stars. blush

Yes I think you are right kurri.

Jason Donovan will be fab. <googles ladbrokes>

MinnieBar Thu 18-Aug-11 11:13:21

Holly Valance launched her musical career by, surprise, having a raunchy video that made it look like she was wearing hardly any clothes. (I refuse to link to it as she doesn't need any more publicity.)

She then had the utter temerity to complain about people 'going on about it'.

She's the Jennifer Love Hewitt of Australian pop IMHO.

Robert Webb would be fantastic grin

GlaikitFizzog Thu 18-Aug-11 11:33:44

Alex Jones should be slightly confident, she trained as a ballet dancer when she was younger. I know it's different, but she's not going to be a Kate Garraway is she?!

YY Rob Kazinsky or Nigel Harman. Is anyone lined up to be leaving Easties, Casualty, Holby City in the near future?

Hey Prolesworth, can you believe it's been a year since the last series?!

OOhh do we have a dedicated Strictly thread then? if so count me in. Jason Donovan was my crush as a young teen<cringe>.

Marlinspike Thu 18-Aug-11 17:05:57

let's think of suitable partnerships...

Jason + Erin or Natalie (all Aussies together)
Alex Jones + Anton (time he had someone who might actually be able to dance!)
Holly Valance + Vincent
Would LOVE to see Russell Grant with Natalie, as she is always so focussed on winning it would be really good TV to watch her gritting her teeth with a crap partner!

fartmeistergeneral Thu 18-Aug-11 22:32:17

Yes, would love to see Russell with Natalie, lol! Imagine her gritted teeth!
