Week 7 We’ve reached the Strictly halfway mark, and the judges are getting tough. Well, sort of. Sometimes. Consistency is like, so hard, you guys. Particularly FOR THE MEN.

Week 6 Oh Strictly Halloween Week, how do I hate thee? Let me count the ways…

Artem, Anya and James leave Strictly

Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers James Jordan, Artem Chigvintsev and Anya Garnis are to leave the show, the BBC has announced.

Week 11 If there’s one thing guaranteed to rile up our largely unflappable tea-drinking nation, it is a flagrant breach of fair play. We might rail at, rebel against or surreptitiously mock those in authority, but, on the whole, we are comforted by the thought of an established system with comprehensible rules and a general […]

Strictly speaking And so to Luuuuuurve Week, meaning the set became a nauseating shrine to DIY bargain-basement tackiness. Why? Truly, we may never know. It’s up there with the great mysteries of the age, like what was really in that briefcase in Pulp Fiction.

Week 9 The message of this week’s Strictly is that we must beware the ballroom gods. Sometimes they are benevolent, and bestow sequinned favours upon us, but sometimes we invoke their wrath. And the wrath of the ballroom gods is a terrible thing to behold. Thus it came to pass that Kimberley, with her array of […]

Week 8 The only good thing about Strictly‘s disaaaahstrous Wembley Week is that the following show, bathed in the rosy light of Television Centre, automatically becomes one of the best of the series. We can hear human speech! The mob is not roaring outside the gates! No one feels the need to feign the gift […]
