Strictly Come Dancing

Show Summary

Strictly Come Dancing is a celebrity dancing extravaganza, complete with the elegance and glamour of ballroom dancing, the glitz and show stopping moves of the Latin dances. Currently in its sixth season, Strictly Come Dancing has become a ratings success with over twelve million viewers tuning in every Saturday night. Hosted by the legend that is Bruce Forsyth, and the lovely Tess Daly, a group of celebrities are coupled with internationally renowned professional ballroom and Latin dancers who aim to teach them to dance both disciplines over the course of the series. Each Saturday night, in front of a live studio audience and the watchful eye of the judging panel – Craig Revel Horwood, Arlene Phillips, Bruno Tonioli and head judge Len Goodman, and the voting public, the couples have to then show off their dancing skills by performing their routine to the sound of a live band. Once the judges have given their criticism or praise and marked the performance out of ten, the vote is passed over to the viewers whose phone in scores are then added to the judges to decide which couples will be in the bottom two. In the first four series, the couple with the lowest votes was automatically eliminated, but the format changed for series five. The couples performed again in a dance off so that the judges could decide which of the two deserved to stay in the competition. Packed full of superb dancing, fantastic live music and more talent than you can shake a stick at, it is a show that cannot be missed.moreless

    • A brilliant programme where the celebrities have to work hard to succeed!

      A brilliant programme where the celebrities have to work hard to succeed! I'm so glad John's gone and forgotten, if I hadn't already made that clear! Any way I was supporting Christine Blakeley, whose dancing I thoroughly enjoyed, unfortunately she was voted out last week. Now we're left with two women and two men, unfortunately I don't like Rachel or Lisa so I'm hoping the winner will be Tom. Both Tom and Christine have day jobs the others have plenty of time to practise. So Tom has my vote. Christine can still be seen nightly on the One Show - another review to make on that one.moreless
    • Secret Pleasure

      Ok! so i love strictly. If you asked me to my face i would deny it. But every Saturday and Sunday i am ether watching it or downloading it. It's amazing and i wish i could do it, I want to become famous just so that i can take part. This season is my fave if only Alisha Dixon had taken part in it this year instead of last year. I Also love the professional dances, it would be good if they had more group dances for the celebrity's. I really hope that Brian and Kristina are taking part next year they both did really good jobs with Heather and john.moreless
    • A weekend treat to watch when its cold outside.

      One of the great things about the Autumn is when Strictly Come Dancing starts again. It is one of those shows that makes you want to watch it sitting by the fire. It makes you feel cosy and warm and positive about the dull grey days outside.

      There is always the perfect balance of celebrities and professional dancers, the judges have lots of personality and passion, the costumes are fantastic and the music is excellent. I love the results show on a Sunday evening too and watch with bated breath to see who will be going home this week. The public vote can sometimes lead to a popular yet bad dancer staying in when a great dancer can be knocked out but I suppose that is all just part of the game.

      I always try to catch it and never regret watching it.moreless
    • Love this show.

      I love Strictly Come Dancing, I cant wait until next Saturday. When I watch this show I always enjoy having a glass of wine. Anyway, This show is brillant, I love to see how the celebraties can dance. I have always wanted to do ballroom dancing, I dont think I will start though. My favourite dance is the Cha-Cha-Cha. I also love telling myself how the celebraties could do better. I also love when the jugdes tell them there mark and what they can do better because I always say it before them! Anyway I might sound abit sad, but this show is brillant. If anyone loves ballroom dancing or any dancing infact you should watch this show.moreless
    • A classic british prime time show.. mixing dancing personalities hip music and formidable characters with a dashing of Bruce on the side what more could you ask for in saturday entertainment..moreless

      I loving this new series. It's compelling, exciting and a frill seeking race to see who is the best. This year we have quality stars and micheal lol. my fav would have to Emma and Darren and Louisa and Vincent all though i love Karen and Mark too. Brendon is is usually self obseesed aragantness. Some top performs have aso graced the staurday dance floor. I do wonder about tess though she just seems to be a poster and not actually doing very much. The dancing is at it's highest if you discount the joker entry in peter but its funny to watch him. It is a shame dashing Anton is out he really needs to be given a fantasic partner but the marks are being awarded on a dancing skill scale and for the most part i agree. Highy watchable series and i shall be staying tuned to see how it works this week .. With Emma busy on children in need not much time for her and darren to practise so it will be interestingif she can pull it off.moreless
