Complete and utter waste of airtime as far as I'm concerned.

I see the beeb are doing their usual thing - treating it as "News" (FFS - it's been wheeled out year after year for seven years - hardly "news") so they can get a three minute advert on each news bulletin  ::-).

Bollocks to it, I say.

7 years? I thought it was a new series last year.

I remember the original series of Come Dancing, introduced by Peter "Get your hand off my thigh" West, which I think prompted a 4th form joke in 1968 along the lines of "What's white and sticks to the floor?"

Aren't you thinking of Peter North? (Link definitely NSFW)

Surely the link is NSEW?

Ha - I did not know him, well I thought I didn't, until someone I know mentioned that they had seen him in that silly footballing soap on Sky a few years ago.

He appears to be an ac-tor, currently appearing in something called "Hollyoaks".

This has left me none the wiser :P

Clarion Hollyoaks is much like The Archers but with fewer tractors and more sex and it has moving pictures like at the cinema.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

More sex?  You mean like Brian Aldridge in the shower? :o

I don't think I could handle any more of that :sick:

I don't hold with these modern Kinematographic picture houses.  It's the work of the devil, I tell you!  If it carries on like this, you'll get people raving in their masses and watching the antics of a pair of talentless goons with silly hair, or some strumpet stranded in a distant rainforest, you mark my words! ;)

Quite - that made me glad that The Archers is on the wireless as the pictures in my head were bad enough. You may find the cast of Hollyoaks somewhat more, how should I put it, nubile. Think Emma Grundy rather than Lilian Bellamy.

Strictly Star Ricky Whittle

Stop press !  (I realise how keenly interested you all are to hear the latest on this) - the Beeb is now confirming that Mr Whittle will be free to dance tomorrow night.  Phew !

The question now becomes what the Great British Viewing (and Voting) Public will make of all this unseemliness.

Since it is alleged that it was an altercation with the paparazzi I think people won't be too bothered. They do tend to throw themselves in front of moving cars tehn complain that they have been hit.

He'd already elected to dance to Elvis' "You ain't nothing but a hound dog".  If only he'd chosen "Jailhouse rock".... :thumbsup:

It was car crime (he tried to run someone over) so it probably doesn't count as real  unseemliness :-\

Judge Craig made that same joke on It Takes Two last night, and got slapped for it.  ;D

Did I just admit to watching ITT?  :-[

that should save us all a load of money on a trial, now you need to set the penalty.

But now it's finished, and that means I return to my normal state (it applies 75% of the year, so I reckon that's normal) of not watching tv apart from box sets - oh, and Cbeebies in the 'watch with mother' sense.  Strictly is the only programme I watch live - which is one reason that I'm always time-poor in Autumn!

Glad to hear that there is at least one other fan of the show here on YACF.  Mrs C and I are quite addicted to it.  When phonelines opened on the final we immediately rang in to vote for Ricky & N but after Cola's second dance we changed our minds so had to vote twice for them instead  :)

I've never voted - and indeed, didn't really care who won!  But I love the programme.  I think that this year, as before, some of the fun went out of it when someone left so leaving a 2 couple final.  It really shouldn't be that difficult for them to have a contingency plan.  My eldest used to be a bit of an addict too, but at 8 he's getting a bit too cool for sparkles and spangles, apparently.  It's OK though, because the littly comes over and asks for youtube reruns of his favourite dances and joins in with the dances :)

I'm really hoping that the show will endure long enough for them to invite Cav onto it.  Apparently he used to compete in ballroom dancing as a youngster.  But I hope he masters the art of being graceful in defeat before they invite him on !
