Had to google Charlotte. Love Chizzy.

Debbie McGee - no, she should not be allowed & if she is & partnered with Kevin then DS forum will explode!! Giving him a ringah (even an old one), who also works for BBC (think she does radio?) will have all the Clifton conspiracy theorists going crazy

Recognise Charlotte and Chizzy from GMB and Holby.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

also rumoured with Chizzy in Daily Mirror yesterday (Chizzy has just been confirmed by BbC) was Debbie McGee - dont know how I feel about this as she is a trained Ballerina (royal ballet) and was in Second Generation (oldies will know of them)  yes she hasnt danced for years but she has had more than casual training - she is small in height and on radio last year said she would do show if she could dance with Kevin - wonder if they will partner them?

Gemma Atherton in papers showing her fitness routines already for strictly and how she will step it up during show in order to try and win it -  she forgets she also has to be popular

found her very arrogant off show when she was with Holyoaks

Think he'll annoy me Bren - has done musicals before & says he 'can move', so I suspect he'll last for a good few weeks!!

Only inasmuch as you have the pick of the girls. You still have to be good   

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

both wear dresses Jo, many top dancers start out in all girl partnerships whilst finding a boy partner - all girls also dance in same comps as boy girl too :)

Just one more question... Do both girls wear dresses or does one dress as a fella and one as a girl?

If they had two females together, would the pro cope as 'the male' role (lifts etc), if they usually dance with a male? Think it will be two men first & not sure we'll see it happening soon.


There are 'lifts' that do not rely on one person's strength to execute, but in any case lifts are not the be all and end all of showdances.

Would straight pros want to partner the same sex? (Sorry if this is a silly question) .


Not necessarily - there are lots of same sex couples who are straight. It shouldn't be an issue for pro dancers, as anyone who has seen jobbing dance teachers easily swapping places between man and lady to coach students.
