I haven't heard of Simon or Aston (but recognise him as one of JLS).

Simon's the bald chef that was on something for the weekend - seems like a nice guy. He looks like he might be fit (or he did then), so hoping he'll be good.

Loving Richard Coles and Simon Rimmer. Think both will be good value.

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

Susan Calman (Scottish comedienne) announced today. Think she's very short?

Thanks Bren - although height might be right, I don't think they'd make a good pair, think it's the age difference?.

I like Susan Calman a lot. Actually, there's a lot about the line up that I like, whether they can actually shake a tail feather though ...

And we're still waiting on this years politician and the sporty folk!

I am wondering though, if this is the year that UK Strictly gives us same sex partnerships? What with the stink kicked up by the BDC's attempt to define what is meant by 'a partnership' within their ballroom/latin regs.

If they were to do this... wouldn't there need to be LGB pros to partner Rev Coles / Susan?
Would straight pros want to partner the same sex? (Sorry if this is a silly question) .

can't see Susan in  a dress, she always dresses very  masculine, would'nt be surprised with a same sex couple.

She says she's not worn a dress or heels for 25yrs but is going to for Strictly

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.

Same here Maisie. I don't see it happening in the near future... but I might be wrong!
