I have a feeling judge Rinder will be rubbish!

Do you think Anton will get Lesley joseph?? I realise
She is petite, but won't by any stretch win it,
And age wise they are the closest!
Just don't give her to an 18 year old- would be
Like dancing with a grand child imo !

Tameka is Kim from EastEnders - she's a bit mad! Think she'll be good fun - like her & Judge Rinder but agree Deborah, not sure if he'll be any good!

he looks like he will be ok you know here is a trailer he did for his show

[tube]o9F8lCnWqo4[/tube]

he is fit too runs many marathons - although he is a barrister now he did attend the Youth National Theatre School and his BF from those days is Benedict Cumberbatch so he is a bit show bizzie too

agree Debs re partners

Claudia is smallest and youngest so AJ who is 21 will be her partner or sure
Tameka next smallest at 4ft 11 so think Kev could be with her
as they are close in age would therefore put Anton with Lesley

Petite ladies this year, most under 5ft 3 besides Daisy Lowe and Laura Whatmore. Leslie down as 5ft 2 on IMDB but I walked past her in Brum not so long back and she about 4ft 11 now.

I guess Daisy / Laura will be paired with Aljaz / Brendan.

Brendan will be ok with Naga

Hope Will gets Joanne. Think Danny might get Oksana.

Will be disappointed if Lesley or Naga get Anton.

Hope Natalie gets someone good this year. I reckon Greg, he's tall isn't he?

Date Posted: 23 Aug 2016 at 09:56
just to add, I know 3 of the girls and a few more of the boys this year :)

lNatalie will get Greg without a doubt all other males too small for her, but wonder how far she can go - Olympian does not always mean good dancer - Louis Smith smaller framed from a sport with more co-ordination etc and colin had loads or natural rhythm - whilst love Greg wonder how good a dancer he will be will be interesting to see

like all the cast so far only down side for me is that Anton is in the show to be honest 


Posted By: Maisie
Date Posted: 23 Aug 2016 at 13:38
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!


Posted By: deborah31
Date Posted: 23 Aug 2016 at 20:22
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

I dont mind dance experience as long as it is not ballroom and latin
as well as Will, Claudia, Laura, Daisy, Dan all have some dance experience

Yes i think DAn? (hollyoaks?) an article said, had been in the cast of Wicked for a year or more ???

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


Posted By: deborah31

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 :)

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?

oh that is interesting Katie - means either he is going along with keeping it all secret until launch aired or  it is up in the air who is sitting out - interesting
