New thread.... hope that’s okay

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 14:02:46

Hi everyone,

Hoping to see you all tonight smile

DarlingNikita Sat 30-Nov-19 15:22:32

Thanks OP!

KurriKawari Sat 30-Nov-19 15:25:54

Is the bombshell reveal about the affair? I hope it's Tess and some wild stallion is showing her a good time (unlike Vernon). I don't know which of the male pros is single. Graziano?

ThursdayLastWeek Sat 30-Nov-19 15:29:09

Hello, checking in for later

Losingcontrol Sat 30-Nov-19 15:33:14

Hello, long time lurker and very occasional poster. Ready for tonight!

Speaking of Karen saying hello to her dogs, Chris and his wife Rosie mentioned on their podcast that when Karen was paired with Chris she assumed she’d go out early so she and her boyfriend got a new dog!!

SureTry Sat 30-Nov-19 15:34:25

Thanks pitching up for later.

I watch on catchup late tonight so marking with a pair of balls so I can have a read afterwards.

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 15:51:59

Hi All...

<waves excitedly>

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 15:54:15

How do we know that Vernon’s not a wild stallion?

billysboy Sat 30-Nov-19 15:57:03

maybe Tess is with Dave Arch

KurriKawari Sat 30-Nov-19 16:05:12

That's true Bluffinwithmymuffin.

SpanishFly Sat 30-Nov-19 16:10:36

I don't think we know Vernon isn't a stallion. But we do know that he did the dirty on her. She deserves better.

Awrite Sat 30-Nov-19 16:11:24

Have gone off Kelvin. I thought last week's effort was awful. The judges would have you think you were going mad. Luckily, Nicole on ITT didn't rate it either so I'm back to having faith in my judgement.

ConfCall Sat 30-Nov-19 16:16:11

Tess can do better than some has-been who’s been drooling over a soft porn star.

SCD is so difficult to call. I’m thinking that Karim and Kelvin must end up in the final (assuming both not together in DO this weekend or next) but who’ll be the third?

DarlingNikita Sat 30-Nov-19 16:21:08

I thought Kelvin was shite last week too. What did Nicole say about it?

GrouchyKiwi Sat 30-Nov-19 16:30:00

Thanks for new fred, bluffin.

Not sure I'll make it for the beginning tonight. DH has a concert tonight so I actually have to look after my children.

Awrite Sat 30-Nov-19 16:31:41

Nicole said it wasn't for her. Tess was shocked. It faux shocked, I couldn't tell.

iklboo Sat 30-Nov-19 16:32:11

Cooo-eee. I can't watch live tonight as we're going out. I'll have to catch up with you all tomorrow.

KurriKawari Sat 30-Nov-19 16:44:59

All I remember from Kelvin dance was thenkettle, Oti sitting on the worktop and him on his knees with a tea towel! I'm not sure if it was his dancing to blame or the choreography.

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 16:57:02

That’s also true.

SchadenfreudePersonified Sat 30-Nov-19 17:07:35

Oh - here you are.

<gets comfy.>

Awrite Sat 30-Nov-19 17:10:35

Don't know why I said Tess was shocked when I meant Rylan. All the Tess stallion chat taking over my brain.

merryhouse Sat 30-Nov-19 17:22:49

to be fair, they are very similar grin

NumbersStation Sat 30-Nov-19 17:23:07

I’m still convinced that the bombshell is the one who has a penchant for droopy straps and semifrocks.

Why else would folk be yapsing about her and nonver not being seen anywhere together for ages.

However, he was the one who started dribbling first.

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 17:26:16

Determined to keep up with you all this week!
I have mulled wine to share later too wine

Awrite Sat 30-Nov-19 17:26:18

Aye, Merryhouse - that they are.grin

SpanishFly Sat 30-Nov-19 17:26:24

numbers yes that's true. All of a sudden theres comments about them living separate lives etc

SoupDragon Sat 30-Nov-19 17:33:00

I'm not sure Kelvin was shit last week but the choreography was. He did fine with what he was told to do I think.

DarlingNikita Sat 30-Nov-19 17:36:51

He was out of snych with Oti quite a lot. And that weird loping run when they ran back to the kitchen near the end just looked like an ape impression.

motherofdoodles Sat 30-Nov-19 17:48:28

Settling in...glitterball thanks OP!

covetingthepreciousthings Sat 30-Nov-19 17:49:07

Thanks for the new thread.

Looking forward to tonight. Sent my dh out for snacks, so we've got twirls, galaxy counters and malted milks ( not sure how they made it to the final snack cut )

TitsInAbsentia Sat 30-Nov-19 17:59:38

Malted milks? Unless you are going to crush them up and add them to melted chocolate I think someone took a wrong turn in the corner shop there!

FuzzyPuffling Sat 30-Nov-19 18:14:03

Hello lovelies! Thanks for the new thread Bluffin
Cute Puffin signing in as well.

FuzzyPuffling Sat 30-Nov-19 18:16:39

Malted Milks are great biscuits. In our office we used to have a competition with them to perform the best "cowectomy"....nibbling accurately round the cow to release it from the biscuit. No one could ever do the space between the cow's front and back legs.

You're all trying it now, aren't you...?

GrouchyKiwi Sat 30-Nov-19 18:19:59

Malted milks are good for making lolly cake, which is a Kiwi delicacy that everyone should try. They're also good for making what my mother calls fudge cake, which is a packet or two of crushed biscuits, a can of condensed milk and 250g butter. You can add chocolate chips and dried fruit and other stuff to make it more interesting but it doesn't really need it.

SeriesofUnfortunateEvents Sat 30-Nov-19 18:26:13

There's a lot in the press today about Kelvin and Oti "sharing a friendly hug" and him not seeing his wife on their wedding anniversary. Can't imagine Oti being attracted to Kelvin...

I'm surprised that more hasn't been made of the dance experience Emma and Karim have. Didn't Claudia say something along the lines of Karim not having danced before. Previously Emma said she had too much dance experience to do Strictly. Now she is consumed with nerves.

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 18:31:18

Ooh, I’ve been thinking about mulled wine all day! We live next door to a very nice pub and then usually do lovely mulled wine.... I don’t make my own until Christmas Eve. They’re tree went up today so mulled wine may be on the menu tomorrow swoons

Never thought of using malted milks for rocky roads etc, I usually use rich tea or digestives, but will try.

Off to the corner shop for snacks while there’s still time smile

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 18:32:04

THEIR tree. Jeez.

Ravenesque Sat 30-Nov-19 18:34:32

Every year there are people who pretend they haven't danced before when you know they bloody have.

Looking forward to tonight's show and wondering who'll go out. I wonder if Karim will be in the dance-off again or if last week was just a glip because people thought he was safe?

I have to say that in rehearsals Alex's Samba is not looking good and I think she could be at the bottom of the leaderboard again.

Wonder if Craig's 10 board will come out tonight.

Etc. I won't be here while the show is on. A friend and I watch in our separate homes and make notes on each dance and then talk about them on the phone later. We're total geeks and don't even care.

I was once told (by some bloke at a posh dinner do who was very into ballroom dancing) that I have 'a wonderful Latin bottom'. blush

Theromanempire Sat 30-Nov-19 18:54:58

Just checking in for tonight glitterball

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 18:59:22

Are these sprout crisps actually a bit green or am I imagining things?

digerd Sat 30-Nov-19 19:00:04

Chris and his Foxtrot did not look good on ITT but hoping he will surprise me. Agree that Alex also looked under par with her samba, but may do well on the night.
Hope Emma keeps her nerve as she looked good yesterday on ITT.
Kelvin with a fast and furious Viennese Walz based American Smooth, not sure about that.
On one of the recent pro dances my eye was caught by a young man with a mop of hair, but couldn't make out if it was AJ or Neil, but was outstanding in his presentation.
Onl 10 minutes to go.

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:07:31

Ok the wine is mulling nicely on the hob, and I've raided the snack box and found popcorn! Winner! grin

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:07:54

These 2 on this game show aren't very good

altiara Sat 30-Nov-19 19:08:44

Just putting my tuppence worth in about the scoring- it’s a bit rubbish for those at the top of the leaderboard ie kelvin and Karim when they draw in 1st place and the next place is 2nd and not 3rd. It meant there was only a 4 point difference instead of 6 points from 1st to last.

Elderflower14 Sat 30-Nov-19 19:09:40

I'm with ds2 for the weekend. Have ordered Papa John's for delivery... Have been up since 4.50 am.... 😴 😴 😴 😴 😴

FuzzyPuffling Sat 30-Nov-19 19:09:51

bluffin that looks like a coughed up furball. Don't eat it!

FuzzyPuffling Sat 30-Nov-19 19:11:28

Sooty and Sweep on Michael McIntyre later? Are they promoting a new book/film?

Apolloanddaphne Sat 30-Nov-19 19:12:15

I'm a bit pissed and looking forward to the show!

GrouchyKiwi Sat 30-Nov-19 19:12:23

This starting bit is annoying..

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:12:43

Evening all.

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:13:10

What will TD be wearing?

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:01

First Bruno now Anton and Kevin singing!

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:10

Sing along a Anton.

ThursdayLastWeek Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:24

I only know this song because of Wall:E

Piggywaspushed Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:25

Maybe stick to the dancing, boys.

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:43

Right that's enough now. Thanks.

Awrite Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:45

I don't even know what a malted milk is, am intrigued.

AppleKatie Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:50

Evening all. Tonight i'm going to be drinking wine, writing school reports, MNing and watching SCD. I can't imagine what could go wrong.

SoupDragon Sat 30-Nov-19 19:14:56

Have they cut the budget for singing acts?

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 19:15:25

Way too late Fuzzy

ploopsie Sat 30-Nov-19 19:15:30

What's the bombshell reference??

Piggywaspushed Sat 30-Nov-19 19:15:46

Those reports will be interesting apple! grin

ThursdayLastWeek Sat 30-Nov-19 19:15:46

Am I supposed to know who that is?

onlymyselftoanswerto Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:12

That's Craig??? shockshock

NumbersStation Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:17

For a minute I thought Dolly was Lauren Harries....

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:28

And now Craig!

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:29

OMG make it stop.

GrouchyKiwi Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:38

Anton and Kevin have boring voices.

Was nice to see Shirley and Motsi dancing.

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:55

Not much dancing in that

SoupDragon Sat 30-Nov-19 19:16:59

Yes, that was, Craig

ManonBlackbeak Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:17

For a minute I thought Dolly was Lauren Harries....

Ahahahaha grin

ThursdayLastWeek Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:29

Oh good lord I didn’t see Craig in that at all til you said!

No getting away from drag no matter how much you try it seems

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:30

Claud's stole all the lametta grin

Sparklingbrook Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:30

Ooh Sir Lenny Henry.

Apolloanddaphne Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:31

Yeah gods those frocks are terrible n

GrouchyKiwi Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:35

I think Kevin is leaving at the end of this year to pursue a career in musicals.

Like Tess' dress. Do not like Claude's, even though the fringing is cute.

I thought that was Craig!

SoupDragon Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:39

Claudia has come as a glitzy lampshade.

FuzzyPuffling Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:44

Jeepers...they look like two Christmas trees!

Elderflower14 Sat 30-Nov-19 19:17:45

Who was that being Dolly? Craig????

Bluffinwithmymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 19:18:36

Apple you’ll either over mark them all or write a lot of insincere waffle about how they always bring it etc

ThursdayLastWeek Sat 30-Nov-19 19:18:41

I absolutely fucking LOVE Tess' dress and would 100% wear that myself should I ever have a jazzy enough occasion!

mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:18:52

I haven't got high hopes for this week

LuckyLuckyWoman Sat 30-Nov-19 19:18:57

Well hello Strictly smile

VanyaHargreeves Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:08

Claud as a 70s christmas lampshade this evening

Clawdy Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:12

LOVE Tess's dress.

derxa Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:17


mogloveseggs Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:19

@ThursdayLastWeek me too but I definitely don't have the figure for it sadly

JumpyLiz Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:39

Evening all

Fires roarin', got a large glass of something and Turkish delight to nibble on.

Pancakeflipper Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:43


I would not have guessed that was Craig.

Did Bruno do anything??

NumbersStation Sat 30-Nov-19 19:19:44

I like that Shirl and Motsi look to be genuinely happy in their intro rather than the aloof pish that Dancey Bustle used to come out with.

xsquared Sat 30-Nov-19 19:20:37

I like Emma's dress.

Pashazade Sat 30-Nov-19 19:20:43

Think Bruno just stood there looking very short! Wonder how high Craig's heels were grin
