I just love Strictly - and I take it for what it is: an entertainment show for the first few weeks, and a dance competition when it all starts to get a bit more serious later on.
I love the glitz and glamour. I laugh with (but not at) the "dad dancers" and the lumpen routines. I love the fact that people are prepared to get out of their comfort zone and "give it a go".
Usually the best dancers get through to the final. Whether or not I like a celeb is neither here nor there - I love watching the progress that they all make (yes, even the Widdies of this world!) and enjoy the whole process. January, always a dull month, is all the worse for the absence of Strictly.
Aah, well - I'm just a simple soul, easily pleased, perhaps.
