Haberdashery shops the UK over are running low on sequins which can mean only one thing. Strictly Come Dancing is back. Dotty Winters was twirling with delight at the prospect so we channelled her happiness into live blogging ever step from week one.
Following a few weeks of what we can only imagine have been pretty intensive rehearsals, the Strictly couples made their dancefloor debuts proper this weekend during two glitter-dipped visits.
On Friday night, we saw six of the 15 celebrities and their respective professional dancer partners take to the floor to perform their first routines for the judges. And us, obviously.
Olympic long jumping medalist Greg Rutherford topped the leaderboard at the end of night one’s proceedings after his energetic jive with partner Natalie Lowe garnered a cracking 27 points from the judges.
Saturday night saw the remaining nine pairs do their thing, with model Daisy Lowe putting in a 32-pointer of a waltzy performance.
Dotty Winters was on hand to survey every step of both night’s proceedings, so if you’re watching on catch up, why not replay what she had to say? We’ll be back next week for more Strictly Come Blogging.3307 Views
