Congratulations Tups and also Tups junior. How lovely to get some good news to start the day. I shall never be a granny because our only surviving daughter was autistic and epileptic, she passed away in 2010 aged 32. We have since been 'adopted' by 4 kids in our road as 'granny and grand dad' because they don't have anynod Umm.... just how many school events are there? We have lost count of the number of times (let alone how many hours) we have sat on rickety uncomfortable chairs in school hallsLOL

Enjoy the new experience, knowing you can have all the fun without the responsibility  and always hand them back at the end of the day

Absoluely.  I was amazed to see her going ahead of Chemmy.  And I quite agree that there is a huge gap between jen and the remaining ones.

How are you love?

I know I'm in the minority, but I think Jen has improved. She even did a fair skate-alone.   Compared with Bonnie Langford, she's Olympic standard.  I don't like the girl, but fairs fair.

Jennifer has got VERY lucky to the final 4, but with Chico getting the rebound vote and with Jorgie and Matthew way ahead, it'll be time for Jen to go!

I have no doubt the show edits creatively to make drama but not in my opinion, to move the voters manipulatively. But what do you think?


I think that a lot of people have been buzzing around with this theory, it just didn't makes sense for Louie (time to high kick off DOI sweetie) to give Jorgie and Matt such a low score. Admittedly on twitter, fans were equally divided between, it was perfect score and agreeing with Louie that is was 'boring'.

Even though I hate that miserable song from Lana Del Rey (& the Born to Die one more, where DID she come from? Talk about over hyped) and I don't like the slow 'romantic' skates, I thought it was one of the best routines of the series

I prepare a lot of the tweets in advance and I actually had 'Jorgie & Matt score a perfect 10 from all three judges'

I also feel a little bit bad for taking the piss all week about Jorgie only having 'a ribbon on a stick' prop as I mistakingly thought she and Matt would easily breeze through with a spectacular score

It also seems bizarro that they were only given one prop, obv done on purpose to showcase her skill (& that ribbon did require skill I've been told more than once). Very strange. Here's hoping they're not pushing Matthew as the winner (amazing as he is) in an unfair way. The week he was over marked for an under par performance he quite rightly looked embarrassed, I'm sure he'd want to win it on his own merit.

So will Jennifer do well in the solo skills skate? Actually, it doesn’t matter at all because she will not win it so in reality, who cares? Her important skate is the routine with Dan.


Funny stuff Kyran!

I was completely shocked by the scoring of Jorgie - all the more so because hers was the only prfrmance not completely dominated by props.  I thought she was captivating.
 
I hope you're wrong about Jennifer making the final - she's improved certainly, but her lovely performance skills don't make up for her skating being below the other three's to me.  That said - she's obviously more popular with the voters than Chico! I was unsurprised by Robin saving him, though - I was far more surprised by Katarina saving Chemmy!

I hope Jen won't be in the final, but to have not been in the bottom 2 this last weekend she had to score higher in the public vote than Chico Angry.
 
Still think that's to do with Dan though.
