 Week 2



Strictly 2017 – Week 1


So Strictly is back! 

I won’t be posting in as much detail this year.

Week 1

Rev Richard & Dianne  Cha Cha Cha There Must Be An Angel by The Eurhythmics  
Mollie & AJ  Jive  Good Golly Miss Mollie by Little Richard  
Aston & Janette Foxtrot It Had To Be You by Harry Connick Jnr  
 Instead of having the first week split into a Friday and a Saturday show they did the whole thing on one this year with all 15 couples dancing on the same night. This was rather too much in my opinion. We’ll get the same thing next week.

 The leaderboard

So we have our early front runners. From early indications Aston and Alexandra are nailed on for the final, with strong contenders Jonnie, Debbie.
Susan, Joe, Mollie, Davood and Gemma are in it a while I think.
The Rev might last longer than he should.
The others could be gone in the early weeks.
As usual, we shall see.
First vote out next week.

This was a Cuban carnival to “She Bangs” by Ricky Martin, with leggy pro Oti as leading lady. This was a fast moving fun number and very enjoyable.
