Sparkly new thread.....

Wow I didn't think Richard would stay.
I think I've gone off kristina. What she's crying for? You'd think they were going to take him out the back and shoot him the way she's carrying on.

She was draped on his chest in a very dramatic manner...

In last night's show Darcy did a joke about Colin channeling John Cleese (silly walks reference) and it got no real response from the audience at all. When they showed it again tonight, her "joke" got a huge amount of laughter from the audience.
It's a miracle! grin

Oodthunkit Sun 04-Nov-12 20:31:21

grin didn't notice that!

kiwibella Sun 04-Nov-12 20:53:35

does anyone know the date of the final show? I've been trying to find this online for myself smile

VillaEphrussi Sun 04-Nov-12 21:35:44

Yes Idon'tknowhow they make the audience do spontanteous bits of choreographed laughing and clapping and laughing turning into clapping etc. so that that can slot it in when needed! Also Darcy doesn't have the aid of Bruce's 'when I lift my hands up you must laugh' technique which saves so many of his 'jokes' smile

I was quite happy with the result and thought it was arrogant of Colin to say in his final speech something along the lines of "for all those who might question it, these judges have so much knowledge in a field that none of us can begin to understand". Expecting public outcry much?

Pasha totally gorgeous but I wish they'd stop cutting his hair grin

VillaEphrussi Sun 04-Nov-12 21:38:35

AmIthatscary what's Pasha's tour what what? envy

TheDailyWail Sun 04-Nov-12 21:43:13

I will miss Colin.

Finallygotaroundtoit Sun 04-Nov-12 23:03:09

Colin looked like he was dancing with a child on his shoes.

They really need to recruit another tall female dancer to join Natalie. And Ian really really needs to come back - Jerry may have got further with him.

AmIthatScary Sun 04-Nov-12 23:06:40

Bye bye Kristina, with your ego and your tears.

But I will miss Colin, it's a shame he didn't have a different partner.

Villa tour info here.

I went last year and it was absolutely fantastic. We got to meet them at the end and I shook his hand a couple of times and got a couple of pics of DD with the pair of them.

He is very good looking in the flesh, and katya was absolutely stunning.

I quite like Richard actually (probably because Erin's one of my favourites), and I'm glad he's still in, but he does seem to be taking every possible opportunity to cop a quick feel!

LivesInJeans Mon 05-Nov-12 07:42:41

Sorry if this has been discussed previously... Has anyone been to the SCD live tour? I'm thinking of a ticket as a Christmas present but imagine back of the O2 is not going to be worth it?

Animation Mon 05-Nov-12 08:34:47

Don't remember Kristina being quite so dramatic as she was in his series - even in that goodbye dance at the end confused - What's it all that about?

Glad Richard stayed - he gave a courageous dance off. Yes, he keeps giving Erin big smackeroo kisses and very tight squeezes which look like they might hurt a bit!

ppeatfruit Mon 05-Nov-12 09:53:54

Hello new threadersgrin i've read the bleedin' lot BTW and *Finallygotroundto it*I'm still laughing aloud at Colin looking" like he's dancing with a Child on his shoes" you've nailed it' it's SOOOO true grin

Agree also about Lisa and Fern needing good supportive bras!!

Agree with you VillaEphrussi Why are they cutting the men's hair like tablecloths? please tell the barber to stop!!! I fancy Pasha and James but they've caught Louis's hairstyle grin

ppeatfruit Mon 05-Nov-12 09:55:24

I meant the men's hair looks like table 'tops' not cloths grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 05-Nov-12 10:16:55

Won't really miss Colin but I do love Kristina.

Kimberley was sexy but that wasn't a proper salsa.

Louis OK but a bit deadpan.

Denise and James excellent, fab song, even though I don't like her and her hard eyes.

Dani and Vincent overmarked; her feet in her kicks were awful, not pointed at all.

Fern dull. Artem is v squat and solidly built. Not a fan. Although he has a nice face.

Lisa and Robin not great, but I like them anyway.

Can't remember anyone else. Underwhelming.

Oh yeah. Victoria needs to take the miserable stick out of her arse and man up.

ppeatfruit Mon 05-Nov-12 10:26:00

Yeah Louis needs a personality transplant IMO lady hello BTW smile

Colin is CUTE shame he went; better than Richard IMO (though they both looked wooden at times) what was it with it with kristina's tears?

Apparently Vict has real self esteem problems an op was saying so needs handling gently grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 05-Nov-12 10:34:28

Hi ppeat!

I'm sorry but Victoria just makes me impatient. If you've that bad self-esteem, why go on Strictly where you're setting yourself up for potential failure?

2rebecca Mon 05-Nov-12 11:34:22

I find Richard creepy and smarmy so am disappointed he is still there. DVO shouldn't be in the show, she's too good, they should just have people who haven't danced much. agree they need more tall female pro dancers.
It would be interesting to know how they weight public v panel votes, I suspect the public vote counts for less than 50%.
I bet dani wants to punch bruno for his snide comments about her height every week.

AndiMac Mon 05-Nov-12 11:52:33

I'm with LadyClarice about Victoria. If you can't handle the pressure, don't go into the competition! All the slebs go into it for the money and to raise their profiles. If I was a producer looking for a new sports face and watching Strictly, I'd think about Victoria, "Well, she's pretty, but she'd be hell to work with, especially if anything goes wrong". I honestly don't think she's doing herself any favours.

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 05-Nov-12 12:03:25

I like Fern, but has anyone else noticed that every week she does the splits and picks up her dress and swishes it about like a flamenco dancer.

DvO, still dislike, but that dance was good. It should be with her experience though.

Colin was at a disadvantage being paired with a short dancer, perhaps he should have got Erin or Natalie as he is the tallest. I think Colin could have been a contender, given the chance.

I think Victoria looks the part, but is a crap dancer, however, the judges don't seem to tell her this. They are all too nice to her IMO, the others would get harsh remarks, but she is brave for standing on the judges desk. hmm She does do the fluttery lash thing a lot.

I want Kimberley, Dani or Louis to win.

hobnobsaremyfave Mon 05-Nov-12 12:36:22

Right after much pondering


Not Bothered

ppeatfruit Mon 05-Nov-12 13:31:17

Hi LittleAbruzz* smile I like Fern too she tries really hard but I'm not sure she's got the staying power she must be nearly 60 or so. grin She needs to be sat at home with a brew and her feet up watching it IMO. Before I get flamed for being ageist I'm 61 !

Louis is physically good but not up to dancing with any real personality that dance on Sat. was supposed to be SEXY fgs he couldn't manage it IMO. Even with the gorgeous and very sexy Flavia.

Danni or Lisa to win. They are really improving all the time while Kim and DVO are already dancers. Lady i agree about Vic, perhaps she was advised badly.

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 05-Nov-12 14:05:35

Hi pp! I do like Lisa too, I think she had a not so good week, but it would be nice to see her flourish again next week. I love watching Flavia dance so that's part of my reason for Louis staying, I agree that he has no personality. I do think the line-up is not as good this year, IMO, where normally I am really rooting for four celebs. Nice to see Vincent still in this year as well, he has a shot with Dani. I'm fed up with the rude comments about her height too, although in the past the judges have been rude about tall girls too.

Lottapianos Mon 05-Nov-12 14:18:28

'Won't really miss Colin but I do love Kristina'

Yay! Me too. I think she seems like a really lovely person and why shouldn't she have a blub - they all work their butts off and as professional dancers they are not used to training for second place! She gets a load of hate on here from the haters hmm

I want to like Victoria but just find her irritating instead blush

Denise gets on my thrupennies with her 'dizzy blonde' act when she so obviously has a core of pure steel. And yes LadyClarice, she does indeed have hard eyes! Well spotted wink

I honestly didn't notice one single second of Fearne's dance - barely even registered that she was there blush wink

I'm another one who would love to be Flavia and thinks that I could be if only given the opportunity. Am clearly demented. She is so gorgeous I would like to bite her!
