Mark Wright Strictly Come Dancing

The Only Way is Essex and almost King of the Jungle Mark Wright has reportedly signed up for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

His bride to be Michelle Keegan turned it down apparently!

A source reportedly said ”Having a couple going head-to-head would have made great TV, but we are delighted to have Mark. Bosses are confident he can win over their audience given his success winning I’m A Celebrity.’

He was asked by new! magazine about the possibility of sharing the screen with Michelle, he said: ‘I’m doing my thing and Michelle’s doing hers.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman Strictly Come Dancing

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will present Strictly Come Dancing, the BBC announced today, putting weeks of frenzied speculation to rest.

So no Anton, no Barrowman and no Norton. Not even a Corbett!

I can’t say that Claude was my number one choice, or my tenth – what do you think?

I really wanted the BBC to surprise me with a presenter I hadn’t even thought of. Something to mix it up a bit and to make it feel fresh.

I count myself as a feminist (although it’s a dirty word these days; no I don’t burn my bras or refuse to walk through a door if a man opens it, yes I do expect equal pay), but I for one am not going to make out that the ‘forward thinking’ Beeb have made a revolutionary decision to have a…wait for it…ALL WOMAN LINE UP!!!

Are they just using this an an antidote to the spate of sexism rows over the past few years? See, we’re not sexist, we’ve got  an All Woman Line-up.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I think all All Woman Line-ups don’t work, I just don’t think this all woman line up works. It’s a personal preference I suppose and I’m sure there are loads of you who are happy with the choice – and I’m happy for you! I just think they’re a bit..daft.

I had my heart set on a few others. Sob.

As soon as the dancing starts I’ll forget all about it. Probably.

The news is true! The BBC has confirmed that Sir Bruce Forsyth has quit Strictly Come Dancing after 10 years and 11 series!

Many of us never thought we’d see the day that Brucie would quit Strictly – although I know many of you were fed up of him fluffing his lines and mumbling through the autocue. Not me though!

Abbey and Aljaz champions 2013 Strictly Come Dancing

Abbey Clancy and Aljaz Skorjanec have been crowned Strictly Come Dancing Champions 2013!

YES!!!

My favourites from the start have won and I couldn’t be happier. The right couple won on the night but I have to say I wasn’t completely sure they were going to win. I thought that Natalie really performed on the night with flawless dancing.

Swinging to the Semis: Strictly Come Dancing quarter final review

Oooooh, quarter finals week on Strictly Come Dancing! I am feeling a little bit doleful about not being in the studio this week, I must admit.

I’ve been emailing Ben Cohen pretty regularly to see if he wants to pop round to mine in his mechanic outfit to watch the show, see if that doesn’t inject a bit of the old razzle dazzle into proceedings, but I’ve not heard a thing in reply. I can only assume the bad weather this week has rendered his wi-fi connection out of action.

I think everybody – including Mark – agreed that it was his time to go last week, but that means we’re left with six really, really strong dancers at this point and they all need to bring it to the dance floor to dodge the dance-off. So, up first…

Musicals week Strictly Come Dancing

A week’s a long time in the world of Strictly Come Dancing; I spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mourning the exit of Ben and Kristina – too soon, in my opinion – but by Thursday I was too excited about my upcoming Strictly visit to keep up my solemn expression.

Also, to be totally honest, it didn’t really go with the big hair and glam frock look I had planned for the bright lights of the studio!

As I was lucky enough to be there in the flesh this week, this isn’t my usual blog, but instead a few snippets of gossip and observations from the live show that you might enjoy. I’ve recently been chastised about my occasionally over rambly writing style, so these are just going to be the headlines; pow! Pow! Pow! Here we go…

Ben and Mark in dance off Strictly Come Dancing

Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff have been voted out of Strictly Come Dancing is a shock dance-off result.

I’m not saying Ben is the best dancer of the pack – but to be saved over Mark and Iveta; I have to say I am really surprised!

Both couples performed their routines again in the dreaded dance-off; Mark and Iveta did their Foxtrot to ‘It’s A Beautiful Day’ by Michael Buble, and Ben and Kristina performed their Charleston to ‘No Diggity’ by Minimatic.

Life’s a beach as Strictly Come Dancing returns from Blackpool – week 9 round-up!

By Laura Edwards

So, the Strictly Come Dancing lot have returned from their seaside break, but the heat is still most definitely on.

I can’t remember the last series of Strictly when we had so many strong contenders at this stage of the competition. With Fiona gone (a controversial decision for lots of viewers), one of the ‘favourites’ is bound to be in the dance-off this week and so they all need to come out fighting. I know many of you will be switching over for the Froch/Groves match later on this evening, but the heavy-weight battle of the ballroom gets going right now!

Let’s get reeeeeeaaaaaady to rumba!
