Just starting a new thread before tonight's elimination, as I'm sure we'll all have something to say about that.

Me me me I did puff dd2 didn't get what I was laughing at!

Biscuitsandtea Tue 20-Nov-12 19:55:25

Wasn't the standing ovulation a running joke from the conversation with Vincent last week and a few times where he's got words mixed up? There was something he was getting confused with 'pause' the other week wasn't there?

PuffPants Tue 20-Nov-12 20:41:00

I didn't know that Biscuits - first time I've seen it actually, I'm normally tied up at that time of the evening!

I suppose it makes more sense as an in-joke. I couldn't believe nobody laughed grin

RedZombie Tue 20-Nov-12 20:47:23

I like Vincent a lot this year, never realised how funny he is.

Oodthunkit Tue 20-Nov-12 21:11:31

He was funny on R2 last Friday with Flavia.

Horsemad Did you see Karen Hardy last night? she has totally vindicated us about Chris and Ola's charleston she reckoned it was BETTER than DVO's grin grin.

I LIKE her now! I also understood her better (either I'm getting used to the way she speaks or she's not gabbling so much )

Yes Redzombie Vincent is fun. Danni to win!!!! I reckon I'm going to vote for them and remove DVO from the final grin

Horsemad Wed 21-Nov-12 11:43:30

Yes ppeat I was cheering at the tv! grin

ppeatfruit Wed 21-Nov-12 13:15:20

Me too grin!!!

I watched Tuesday's ITT, and after all the comments here, listened and watched Nicky carefully. He really is all me me me. When he was talking, he didn't look at Karen at all, nor did he refer to "we" when talking about dancing at Wembley even once. Whereas in comparison, Dani constantly said "we" about her and Vincent and always looked at him to include him in the talk.

Karen annoys me a bit with her one finger wave (reminiscent of how I move my finger when singing the Peter Pointer round of Tommy Thumb) and her hissing in the practice studio is scary. But she's nothing compared to what a cock Nicky is coming across as.

My only caveat is that maybe his wife is insecure/jealous type and he's trying to keep things smooth on the home front by not looking to be at all interested in his dance partner.

Biscuitsandtea Wed 21-Nov-12 21:40:18

I noticed that andi - Karen said 'we', Nicky said 'I' hmm

ppeatfruit Thu 22-Nov-12 08:28:48

Somehow Nicky doesn't come across as the sensitive loving husband scared of upsetting the jealous wifey though does he? grin

Oodthunkit Thu 22-Nov-12 08:40:57

Yes they are the only couple who aren't hugging

ppeatfruit Thu 22-Nov-12 08:45:09

I don't blame karen hissing at him !!grin

TheHumancatapult Thu 22-Nov-12 19:12:04

Does anyone know if Danni be doing the tour ?

RedZombie Thu 22-Nov-12 20:04:54

When darcey said to him that Karen should help him with his hamstrings, he said something like 'what about my wife' so maybe that's an issue (or maybe he's an arse). That hissing thing is freaky though.

Dani, Michael, Louis and Lisa are confirmed for the tour so far.

RedZombie Thu 22-Nov-12 20:22:18

And as Vincent and Flavia don't usually do the tour, I wonder who Louis and Sani will be paired with.

TheHumancatapult Thu 22-Nov-12 20:29:26

Ty ok I'm going to see if any tickets dd loves Dani and Lisa and has enjoyed watching with me

TheHumancatapult Thu 22-Nov-12 20:30:32

Red I wonder about pascha maybe but not sure on what height differance be ? Would not thought Kimberley doing tour

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 22-Nov-12 20:33:06

If Vincent and Dani win won't Vincent be obliged to do the tour?

RedZombie Thu 22-Nov-12 21:29:32

The tour isn't anything to do with the BBC so he doesn't have to do it. Him and Flavia do their own show, as do Anton and Erin. I think Brenda's might do a show as well.

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 22-Nov-12 21:46:05

Oh shame. Thanks RedZombie.

For what it's worth, I thought that DVO and James seemed to be gettnig on beter in ITT this week. More relaxed, amicable laughing with each other rather than at. I wonder if they've reached a truce of some sort. It must be pretty intense all those hours rehearsing together that every little niggle is magnified. I

also suspect that James is not easy to be with when he is edgy (and that he gets stressed quite easily), like when doing the Charleston. James is one of the few professionals to acknowledge that there are other choreograhers for certain dances and that those dances are not in the normal pro repertoire. He's happier and nicer now he's back to the "10" (as I believe it is called!)

ppeatfruit Fri 23-Nov-12 16:17:29

Yes tablefor They did seem more relaxed; I didn't realise he's married to Ola! I still think they're more like 2 pros and for that reason I don't think DVO should win.

Biscuitsandtea Fri 23-Nov-12 17:10:54

I thought they got on better too. smile

I think some reference should be made / credit given where other specialist choreographers help the professionals. In the olden days they used to show them both learning it. Maybe they think it would undermine the professionals if they're shown getting help but if they are having help then it is only fair that the helpers get a mention / some credit?

It's like trying to fool us with the Sunday night results hmm

RedZombie Fri 23-Nov-12 18:53:01

* I didn't realise he's married to Ola! *

Whaaaaat! Are you new? It's mentioned A LOT. smile

Was supposed to be out with a friend sat night and she cancelled and my first thought was 'excellent, I can watch Strictly live!'. <Saddo alert>
Although if he rearranges for the final night I'll be distraught.
