In the early days of Strictly the clear inference was that nobody would have had any formal dance training. It quickly became apparent, even to those of us with two left feet, that the claim was on dubious ground.
Funnily enough they were talking to Erin Boag on Take 2 this evening. She commented that in the early years Strictly was a dance show pure and simple, whereas over recent years it has change to a dance based entertainment one.
Personally, I'm not bothered whether people have dance training or not. I am bothered when false claims are made.
