Agree Bren - some of the others might disappoint & others might surprise but Anton is a guaranteed flop!!

I thought Anton looked exhausted after some dances last year as if it was too much for him. I wonder if he is any fitter a year older!

I have my doubts about Greg too
Who did Ola have last year ? Wasn't it Eoiwan??
He tried- bless him, but just wasn't a natural

Lots been in the papers re Will Young and his years
Of ballet etc and dance lessons

The cast is decent enough - but what in god's name is Ed Balls thinking?

yep and he's over 50 now remember


If he sat this one out tho (ie no celeb partner)he'd have nothing to do, as he barely does any group dances, unless they're just ballroom, and a specialised dance with one of the female dancers.

I cannot believe world champion showdance champ Neil Jones will sit out whilst Anton is in

The cast has taken a younger look Anton will look even older

Brendan/Pasha/Natalie not looking so young now either :)))

quite ridiculous really.
Altho i admit for the more mature ladies an older man is better, even I wouldn't like a 19 year old male pro dancer, but I'm sure there could be older male dancers on 'stand-by' yearly, and i'm not talking much older, such as Ian Waite and other ex pro's for any older female celebs chosen etc... We all know Lesley Joseph, as entertaining as she'll be, and I'll enjoy watching her learn, but she aint gonna win is she?
Same goes for Natalie, and the older female dancers, they all have a place for certain celebs. I enjoy watching the older (ie 40+) more than the younger celebs learn anyway, but that is probably my age!

I enjoy the older celebs learning too debs what I really mean there is an upper age limit on the pros and I think after 50 that is it - also agree natalie and older female dancers def have a place on the show

I don't really mind if there is an upper age limit on the pro, I think if they were a world class dancer, they could carry on as long as possible, if they were with a similar or slightly younger partner, and of course are still as good at dancing and teaching. It is when they resort to comedy, in particular making their partner look silly , is when I don't like it. I'm sure we can all think of certain times on the show when it has been a bit cringeworthy.

yes Debs on reflection what you said  is what I mean a good example is Corky Ballas in the states a former world champ who danced on the show whilst his son was on the show too as a professional and his dancing was fine and he danced well with the older ladies

His ex wife Shirley Ballas is a world leader in dance and she still dances well - though she would never go on the show itself

what I really meant was dancers in the condition of Anton :)

Question for you Bren...

Are we going to have spoiler for the pairings this year?
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Just seen Neil post on FaceBook that both he and Katya are excited to find out who their partners are this week. Obviously not Neil sitting out then as we thought?
