Can anyone help concerning the music? Anton & Katie's Charleston to Too Darn Hot, anyone know which version the band were playing? According to the BBC Strictly Playlist it was Ella Fitzgerald's but hers is too relaxed for a Charleston.
Also can anyone helping me in tracking down any of the first 4 series?
MUCH MUCH OBLIGED [=D>] [:)]

You need to ask Bren. She'll know

cheers for the help Bren I knew what the song was but because it has been covered so many times I couldn't work out which version it was? Knew it wasn't Mel Torme or Buddy Greco or Ella but all I could find was it was from Kiss Me Kate lol I knew that but no idea what version? I even emailed Dave Arch but even he couldn't remember lol

As you seem to be the mind of info for songs, here's another one for you, way back in 2010 (Series 8) Matt & Aliona did a brilliant Charleston to 42nd Street but do you know who's version it was?

think it is based on the original 1933 Ruby Keeler version and Dave Arch has just modernised it

quick one Bren last night's Charleston version of Bare Necessities from Jungle Book didn't sound like the film version? Any idea whose version it was? It sounded a bit more up-tempo than the version we all know

I think Dave Arch based the bands version on the song from Jungle book 2 and not the original Jungle book
