It's back! SCD has finally returned to our screens. It's as camp as christmas but I just love it. The omens are looking good for a great series this year - different set, different male dancers (phew, they're hot) and a good variety of celebs. Unfortunately, it's the same old Brucie. Ah well, we can't have everything.
Of course there's the usual pantomine villians, cutesy couples and hunks. I also love the ones that have no chance and you just know that the professional dancers must be thinking 'oh shit' when they're paired up. This year we have Ann Widdecombe and Paul Daniels. They're the adult versions of the kids that got picked last at football during PE.
Good news also is that Claudia Winkleman takes over the Sunday results show. She's been a bit hit on 'Strictly - It Takes Two' and I'm really pleased to see she's moving up to present the biggie. I've just seen the first part of SCD where the professional dancers meet up with their celebrity partners. Casting my very experienced dance eyes over proceedings... I'm going for the favourites being from the male celebs... Matt Baker, Jimi Mistry and Scott Maslen. From the girls... Kara Tointon and the girl singer from Eternal. But then again, Ann Widdecombe might be a dark horse with her Argentinian tango..
