Strictly 2014

Strictly must be a real money spinner for the Beeb......raised an eyebrow the other night when Zoey announced on Strictly ITT, a comp where the prize was the dress designer's used sketches. The entry cost  was £2.50 + normal fees per text.....this is far in excess of anything I've known before, where the prizes were exotic holidays and so on costing thousands of pounds.

Agree David, do they really think we don't notice that the audience all have the same clothes on! 

When it first started the results show was later the same evening, why don't they do that now 

 

Well, Lily, I doubt if there could have been a more glaring example than last week (Halloween)....... did they really expect that we believed that they removed all that make-up & costume on Saturday night and re-applied the whole lot again on Sunday??

I'm feeling a tad uneasy about this 'one good dancer, one poor dancer' scenario in the dance-off every week, too.

Would Aunty deceive? Well to stop this stupid pretence about the result show taking place on a Sunday would be a start in trusting them.

I'm  using Win 7 with my Dell Inspiron desktop and wouldn't want to upgrade just now, particularly to Win 8.

When I do need a replacement, I would have a new tower built for me by a local firm, reinstalling Win 7 with my disc, for which I hold the licence.

I'm lucky to have a 50+ Mb broadband.

Caroline in the dance-off, Judy through to next week.....I just don't understand. Now I'm beginning to resent Judy.....and her son Andy lost today.

Probably Alison was reaching the end of her time, but I still felt quite sorry for her.

Lived through those times, Frank. The first dance I learned was The Valeta...and oh, those steel gramophone needles that had to be changed after playing a couple of records.
