Joe & Chizzy are my two favourites so far ... but I'm a big Holby fan .

Think the last three need to be either younger or very famous .

I like Jo and Chizzy but to put two from the same show a bit meh to me and many tv critics are surprised by it - I think the rumours that they have had trouble getting the ones they wanted may be true - it needs a couple of sports people and as you say Jo some younger ones

so two more ringahs in the last 3 Debbie and Alexandra (despite what she says) other two ringahs Gemma (again despite what she says) and Ashton

in saying that dont mind some dance experience but somone who was trained by Royal Ballet maybe a step too far

so far will support Johnny he is a great paralympian

Good signings . I think Johnnie will be popular and Alex very good.

Think Aj might sit out this year as he's so young . Not sure about the girls.

Not a bad line up, a bit light on sportfolk though. A few of them seem to be shoo-in's for the final but then again, as we all know, the name of the game isn't JUST dancing, there is the popularity vote also!

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

agree Thess I think Dancing on Ice grabbed the sportsfolk they have two i believe - agree re who will make final - Gemma (Ive not danced before) is training hard and from what ive read in papers she thinks she is a shoo in but I dont find her very likeable (have met her) and those who take it too seriously often not as popular as they think.

Hope Jonnie does well believe Sharna Burgess came over from DWTS USA to help assess him for show (she danced with an amputee) and gave him some tips etc and I hear he is having a leg made to help him with the latin (based on the type used on US show)

Yes, I saw some of their routines, quite brilliant. I'm looking forward to seeing Jonny too.
