Strictly Saturdays: Week 13 aka THE FINAL

I can’t believe we’re here. After 13 weeks of dancing and drama, the Strictly Come Dancing 2018 final is here. It’s been a really good series. At the beginning I was worried that this would be the year I would fall out of love with the show, no-one was jumping out at me to support them, and I was really concerned, but in the end it’s turned into a good year and two of my favourites have made it to the very end. There’s been lots of controversy this year, so I’m hoping that at the end of the show, we’re all happy that the right person won for the right reasons.

Strictly Saturdays: Week 12

Evening all and welcome back to Strictly Saturdays actually on a Saturday. I don’t want you to be too alarmed that we’re getting close to Christmas and what not, but it’s already Semi Final week! Everyone is doing two brand new dances, and it’s all going to be final preparations. Who will make it? Who will fall at the final hurdle (literally)? I’m so excited! I think this is the week when we really see who copes under pressure. I’m so excited. I almost forgot that Charles and Karen were ever in the show, I wasn’t disappointed to see them go last week.

I don’t want to dilly dally too much, so we’ll skip over the fact that Tess looks like a stripper, Claudia looks like lampshade, Shirley looks like a Christmas tree and Darcey looks like The Duchess (a little Dad Wrote a Porno joke for you there). Seriously, could they not have dressed them a little better for the semi-final, the guys look great!

So, let’s get on with the show and see how many journey’s and dreams we have mentioned! Continue reading “Strictly Saturdays: Week 12”

Strictly Saturdays (On Sunday): Week 11

Hello hello, how are you all? How was your weekend? I’ve had a jam-packed and really rather lovely weekend that started visited family, ended with watching Liverpool beat their rivals Everton at Anfield, and had a brilliant trip with friends to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio tour in between. And that’s the reason I am blogging a day later than the show aired. I was in Watford when it started and had a 4hr drive home so I am only just watching Week 11. And what a week it is, quarter finals and musicals week! Continue reading “Strictly Saturdays (On Sunday): Week 11”

Strictly Saturdays (on Monday): Week 10

I’m sorry. There, I’ve said it. I’m sorry this post is quite so late, but surely it’s better to post something rather than nothing? I have absolutely no excuse other than I was tired and I am in a blogging slump and struggling at the moment with it all! Anyway, the show, I feel like we suddenly have no people at all! Last week’s Blackpool Spectacular saw us say goodbye to Kate and Aljaz, and even though I was gutted, I was pleased that we didn’t lose anyone that I really liked.

Strictly Saturdays: Week 9

Hello one and hello all, I’m home, which means only one thing, the return of a full Strictly Saturday. I’m back in wintry Liverpool and therefore have no more Disney distractions, I’m in it full the full show. And do you know what else is back? BLACKPOOL. Yup, it’s already that time in the competition when all the contestants hop it up North and get to dance in THE BLACKPOOL TOWER BALLROOM. OOooooo, aahhhhhh. I always love Blackpool week, everyone gives it that bit more, we usually see more 10’s and often some cheeky 40’s. There are extra dancers a plenty and everything is so extra.

Strictly Saturdays: Week 6 Spooktacular

Good evening ghouls and witches and welcome to 2018’s Strictly Spooktacular. Straight up honesty here, I haven’t seen the full show because they don’t broadcast it in the USA, but I don’t want to miss out so I’ve watched the new live stream they add on YouTube and checked out everyone’s dances and costumes and it all looked stunning. It’s nice watching it that way, all of the filler is cut and you can condense the show down to 20mins, but it means I didn’t get to see the pro dance at the beginning and didn’t get to see the training footage that is always fun in Hallowe’en week. So yes, this week will be a lot shorter than usual, but I’m still here and reviewing, yay! Continue reading “Strictly Saturdays: Week 6 Spooktacular”

Strictly Saturdays: Week 5

Welcome one, welcome all to another Strictly Saturdays post. I don’t want to be the one who says this all the time, but, can you believe how fast this series is already going? Last week we said a very sad goodbye to some of my favourites Katie Piper and Gorka Marquez, they were the third pair to say goodbye to Strictly this year! I’m really excited about tonight’s show, I have done a lot of things to get ready for my upcoming holiday today and I have completely sorted a room in the house and begun tidying and cleaning my room ready for the trip, so I am looking forward to relaxing with some good dancing. I don’t want to have criticise everyone last week, but it was a little pedestrian for me, no-one shone and no-one nose-dived and it was a week that passed me by.
