It’s been a rough year but Strictly still managed to find a way to shine and provide us with a glinting sequin of joy in a year that lost its sparkle within a matter of months.

Happy 10th birthday to Bruno Tonioli! They grow up so fast.
With another bungled up three way tie and a fan favourites languishing at the bottom of the leaderboard this was always going to be a bit of a ride of a Results Show but don’t worry we’ve got 2 special guests! (Or do worry, I don’t know how you feel about Gary Barlow and dancers from that show I kept forgetting to watch).Read More

This week we return to our regularly scheduled nonsense with The Triumphant Return of Miss Motsi Mabuse, no more pretending we aren’t in London and the Jive being the scourge of the ballroom.Read More
