As all the other threads seem to have died off I thought I'd start a new one in anticipation of this Friday's first live show.

I have to say I'm not too bothered about the Celebs this year, but then again I'm more interested in watching the professionals anyway!

The line up for each of the two shows has been announced (from BBC website):

On Friday 30th September the couples performing for the first time on live television will be:

•Alex
•Anita
•Audley
•Dan
•Lulu
•Robbie
•Russell

Then on Saturday 1st October the couples performing for the first time together will be:

•Chelsee
•Edwina
•Harry
•Holly
•Jason
•Nancy
•Rory

Please note the running order has yet to be confirmed. The celebrities have been listed above in alphabetical order.

They will dance either a Waltz or a Cha Cha Cha, but I'm not 100% sure who is doing what.

My overriding thought in the run up for the series so far has been "I hope the wardrobe department come up with some decent foundations for poor Chelsee!"
That outfit they've put her in for the promo shots makes her boobs look humungous shock

Anyone else care to share their thoughts in advance?

Just me then?!

Ha, no - me too!
Friday's show looks a bit...meh. Saturday's will be great smile
Jason D... I'm still a tiny bit in love with him.
I think Harry's going to be a front-runner...

I haven't seen any rehearsal videos sad. I have no Internet access at home at the mo and can only get online via my phone which is deathly slow and can't handle videos!

Can't wait until tonight!

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 14:15:52

Just under 7 hours to go! I can't wait!

[cha cha chas around the room] grin

Marlinspike Fri 30-Sep-11 14:20:23

Oowww
Da da da-da da da daaa da da da-da daaaaaa

I am VAIR VAIR excited!!

I have a feeling Nancy is going to be incredibly annoying, and Lulu will be amazing!

heebeejeebees Fri 30-Sep-11 15:21:38

Personally, I can't wait to see Dan strutting his stuff grin

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 15:24:56

I heard Robbie Savage on Chris Moyle's show this morning and he sounds like he is bricking it! He said Russell is surprisingly good.

[runs off to find rehersal footage]

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 15:27:30

Oh dear, I've just seen the opening titles for the new series here

Is it just me or does Anton look like he's hefting a sack of spuds and Lulu headbuts Brendan's chest?!

bebeballroom Fri 30-Sep-11 18:12:31

Just checking in, am on holiday so only have phone for Internet until 2moro,will be watching tonight but not posting! sad I heard Robbie on BBC breakfast saying that Russell was good! Really hope so coz he seems lovely! Line up for 2moro looks better, but we'll have to wait and see! Eeeek!!! SO excited!

bebeballroom Fri 30-Sep-11 18:13:27

I've just looked at some of the photos from dress rehearsals.

Ola appears to be wearing a blue floaty scarf and Holly has on a gold sequin. envy

From what I could see (tiny screen) Dan, Audley and Anita look to be doing a waltz. Holly, Robbie, Lulu are all doing the char char chaaar. Couldn't make out Russell's. He's in white and it looked waltzy but I couldn't see Flavia's dress.

I've watched most of the rehearsal videos but can't remember who's doing what. <memory? what's one of those>

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 20:44:07

Do we really expect Ola to wear more than a hankerchief though? [so very envy of her figure]

Almost time!

Doilooklikeatourist Fri 30-Sep-11 20:48:47

Glass of wine poured
Stereo sound on .
Preparations going well .
I like the look of Jason , Harry and Russell .
Ladies I like are Anita and Holly .
No real favourites yet , early days though .

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 20:52:07

Harry looked good in the video I saw earlier today. I was impressed with his arm extensions at this early stage.

9 mins to go!

[pours a wine]

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 21:01:20

Here we go!!!!!!!!!

Doilooklikeatourist Fri 30-Sep-11 21:02:29

Ooh hoo we're off !

bebeballroom Fri 30-Sep-11 21:07:04

Quick one off the phone... Is it me or does Chelsee look like a Malibu barbie?!

Doilooklikeatourist Fri 30-Sep-11 21:08:05

I think she looks like a hooker

CaveMum Fri 30-Sep-11 21:08:38

Holly looks very nervous. She has the dame nervous habit as me - holding on to her elbow.

LydiaWickham Fri 30-Sep-11 21:08:48

so what has holly been up to for the last few years then?

moolie1 Fri 30-Sep-11 21:09:35

AitchTwoOh Fri 30-Sep-11 21:10:09
